Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


I got my first covid19 shot in December 2020. By day 3 my arm hurt so bad and swelled. I went to ER. I was given meds for the pain and referred back to my Dr. Which I did immediately. All information on swelling and pain in the arm indicates that after a couple weeks the swelling and pain should subside. There was no change to my arm. ​

I followed up with my Dr again. I was put on steroids and started Physical Therapy for Lymphedema twice a weeks.

It is now 6 months later. There is no change to my arm. It still measures 2 1/2 inches larger than the right arm. Yes, it is still swollen but the pain is now a dull ache most days. I wear a compression sleeve on my arm all day except when sleeping. I continue to go twice a week to physical therapy as well as an everyday home regiment.

What else can I do? I don't know!
