Shoulder Pain After Vaccination

Are you experiencing shoulder pain?  Have you recently received a vaccination?  You shoulder pain very well could be because of the vaccination.  It might be hard for some of you to believe at first.  After all, millions of people every year receive vaccinations.  That’s true and there’s something else that you should know.  Sometimes vaccinations cause shoulder injuries.  It happens more often than you may think.  You know this all too well if you’re currently experiencing shoulder pain due to a vaccination.

What should you do if you’re experiencing shoulder pain?  Here we’re going to tell you exactly what you should do.  None of this is meant to alarm you.  Instead, it should educate you.  After all, you’re health is the most important thing that you have.  Without it, you have nothing.  This is why you should take anything regarding your health seriously.

Have you experienced shoulder pain for more than 48 hours?  If so, then you need to call the doctor.  It’s not uncommon for people to hurt their shoulder.  What makes your situation different is that you’ve recently received a vaccination.  This is why you should be slightly more alarmed than usual.  Though, it’s not a reason to freak out.  Wait until the 48 hours are up and see how you feel.  It may not be related to the vaccination at all.

If the pain persists you’re going to have to call the doctor.  There could be several things wrong with you.  It could be anything from a frozen shoulder to liver disease.  It may sound odd that liver disease can cause shoulder pain.  It can along with gallbladder disease and heart disease.  The thing that should alert you the most is the fact that you recently received a vaccination.  The likelihood that it’s the reason for your pain is highly likely.  Though, there can be other conditions causing your symptoms as well.

Treatment for shoulder pain due to vaccinations can vary.  It may simply require less use of the shoulder.  Also apply cold presses to it as needed.  While for other people you may need pain medication.  Don’t be surprised if the pain becomes more than you can tolerate.  As this is quite common.  Especially if you have a condition such as bursitis or a rotator cuff tear.  These can be quite painful and may require the use of medication.  While some people may even be required to receive cortisone injections.

Don’t be alarmed if a vaccination caused your shoulder injury.  It happens far more than most people think.  That doesn’t mean you should neglect it.  In fact, you’re going to have to be very proactive in the treatment of this condition.  You’re not going to be able to not do anything.  You’ll have consult your doctor regularly.  While you may even have to go to a physical therapist.  This situation will not get better on its own.  You must seek professional medical help.  It’s the only way that you’re going to be able to get rid of it.  By not doing so you’re doing yourself far more harm than good.

Painful Tetanus Vaccine Side Effects

Most children receive the Tetanus vaccine from a young age….but is it safe?  Tetanus is a serious disease which is caused when bacteria releases a toxin or poison into a person’s body. Tetanus lives in the soil, so a child who plays outside can get infected even from a small injury, as this disease gets into the body through cuts or wounds. The CDC suggests vaccination is the most effective step you can take to be protected from tetanus, but just like any medicine, vaccinations have side effects. According the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,Brachial Neuritis is one of the known potential Tetanus shot side effects.

Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated Study Finally Being Done

When wondering minds begin to question whether or not there really is hard evidence that either proves or disproves the dangers of vaccinations, one may often feel like they are hitting a brick wall.  You can search high and low and you will find varying opinions and studies on both sides of the spectrum.  But how is it possible to make a fully educated decision on your own if the facts aren’t readily available?  Truth is- it’s very difficult.  But, there is hope on the horizon, according to one doctor, as a new study attempts to examine links between vaccinations and children’s long term health.

According to an article found at Health Impact News Daily, the author, Suzanne Humphries, MD says one way to find out would be to compare vaccinated children with unvaccinated children, and a new study is presenting hope to those desperately seeking these answers.

The study is called, “Vaccination Status and Health Outcomes among Homeschool Children.” The pilot study involved four states. That data has not been fully analyzed. The upcoming study will be nationwide in the USA.

NIH Vaccine Chief Joins Big Pharma

Gary Nabel, one of National Institutes of Health’s most prominent researchers who heads up the agency’s Vaccine Research Center (VRC) – has announced that he will become chief scientific officer at Sanofi this month.

Dr. Nabel joins Sanofi from the National Institutes of Health, where he served as Director of the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1999. During his tenure at the NIH, Dr. Nabel provided overall direction and scientific leadership of the basic, clinical, and translational research activities of the VRC and guides development of novel vaccine strategies against HIV and other emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, including Ebola/Marburg hemorrhagic fevers, influenza, chikungunya and other viruses.

Nabel, when talking about his former VRC position said that there was “nothing about the job that I don’t like.”  He said he decided to switch to Sanofi because it would cut his commute time.

It’s a position he is ideally suited for, considering his extensive connections with the government agency, according to Dr. Mercola.

Elias Zerhouni, the former director of the NIH, actually recruited him for the position. Zerhouni is now the head of Sanofi-Aventis’ research labs, as well as a professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, a member of the Board of Trustees at the Mayo Clinic, and a senior fellow for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Program.

This comes as no surprise, considering Zerhouni is no stranger to conflicts of interest, said Dr. Mercola.
