Flu jab

Had the flu jab on Thursday, and I know you can get a red painful lump and sore arm.
I have all that but the pain is in my chest as well, is this normal?
How long does it last, it's like a burning ache (definitely not heart burn).
Had paracetamol and helps a little.

This is unlikely to be the flu jab, but may be something else coinciding.

I'd see your doc - never ignore chest pain.

The flu jab isn't a live vaccine so unlikely to be giving you symptoms. How many weeks are you? Could it be ribs opening up?

It's the top of my chest not under the ribs, the nurse said it was likely to give me a sore arm which it had and the same soreness had spread to that side of my chest.
It feels a lot better now along with the arm, I'm 27 weeks.
