Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about your son`s symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,it seems that your son`s symptoms are not due to infection,most likely due to inflammation at the shot site(due to the nerve),so I will advise that he takes over the counter motrin or naproxen which will help subside his pain.If it does not ,within 5-6 hrs,then ,he might need to see a physician who can do a physical exam,to rule out infection and the physician will be able to prescribe more stronger pain killers,which will take care of your son`s pain.

Thanks

it has been over 5 hours now and I had already known that it was not infected before and believed that the doctor made a mistake in his injection and was hoping you might be able to help me relieve my sons pain..I cannot accept that answer...I am sorry it sounds to me like you would rather not fully understand this situation.

Thanks for using JustAnswer. I will try to help you out. During the injections the needle passes through a muscle and sounds like it passed through some nerves. This caused trauma and pain. The nerve and muscles will have to heal themselves. There is really nothing you can do to fix it. It will just take time for the damage to heal. Only pain medicines and an anti-inflammatory drugs will help relieve the pain. This is a common problem with injections, but will take several days to try and repair itself...Be sure to let your dentist know of your problems that have develop so he will know what is going on. This should be monitored daily by a dentist. He should prescribe your son something that will keep him comfortable until the pain subsides. Thanks Dr. Cliff

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
