Other than a numb left arm and a loss of taste and smell, the shot went great!
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

I kid. No side effects so far. Frankly, I'm worried they gave me a placebo.

My arm starting hurting way more than I expected about 3 hours later. It feels bruised, and tight. That is it so far (about 5 hours in).

So far only the slightest soreness in my arm after 7+ hours.

My arm still hurts quite a bit this morning. Only if I raise it or touch it, though.

Did the Dr tell you to not do that, so then you wouldn't have pain? ;)

My arm soreness is very mild. Other than that, nothing so far. I don't know if this helped or not but I made a big point of really relaxing my arm when getting the shot.

By the way, the huge increase in vaccine distribution over the last 2 months or so has been a HUGE help. But certainly not the time to declare victory...

Nice. Let us know if you have any side effects. From what I've heard, it's worse on the 2nd and it seems like the younger you are, the worse the side effects like tiredness, headaches, and chills.

I had very quick onset of shoulder pain, just like the first one. But the dude was in a hurry and didn't even give me a chance to relax my arm.

I knew some folks that were told to take tylenol arthritis (which is just extended release acetaminophen) to help. I took that a couple hours after getting the shot and so far I haven't had any side effects except being tired. I think if I can get through the first 24 hours without anything worse than that, I will be good. Just about 4 more hours to go.
