Is it normal for your arm to be red, a little swollen and very sore after having the whooping cough jab?! Had mine on Tuesday and my arm is very uncomfortable!

Yes! Mine hurt for ages and was very swollen and red.

That's reassuring (sorry!) fingers crossed in a few days it will start feeling better!

My pain had gone around day 7 or 8...

Yes, I felt like I had a dead arm for days.

Yep, a good few days! Remember not being able to lie on it.

I had mine yesterday and after reading how much it hurt everyone i was terrified but actually I'm fine... Its a little tender but nothing much. but she asked what arm i wanted it on and i picked the side i dont sleep on so maybe that helped as I'm not accidentally rolling on it in the night

The actual injection didn't hurt too much, just the dead swollen arm after does! Is feeling a little better today so hopefully give it a few more days and I won't be complaining about it any more!
WW - I had mine on the side I don't really sleep on so not trying to lay on it at night is helping a little!
