I received an allergy injection on Thursday and have been in

Customer Question

I received an allergy injection on Thursday and have been in severe pain ever since. No bruising or bump; no itching. Just severe, bring me to my knees, painkillers/ice/heat/muscle rubs do not help. As a migrainer, high level of tolerance to pain, but this is constant, acute, wakes me at night, and in short unbearable. If they hit a nerve, is there a treatment? Called the allergist's office but they said they had never heard of a reaction like this and told me to take moltrin 3 x per day. That was Thursday...still in!

the allergy injection could have hit a nerve to cause severe pain.
you might need to try a nerve pain medication like gabapentin or lyrica to help decrease the pain.
you should ask your allergy doctor to refer you to see a pain doctor or neurologist for treatment for your pain.
there are ways to help decrease your pain
let me know if you have questions.
