Solved! Why Tetanus Shot Hurt

When I was about 12 I attended summer basketball camp. One day I was late to camp because I had a doctor's appointment. Normal checkup, not memorable, except for one thing, my first tetanus shot.

Seems like that shot hurt for days. Other tetanus shots I've had since then never hurt like that. Now I know why... basketball camp.

Just had a physical and part of that was updating by tetanus shot. Shot didn't hurt, nothing memorable, until I decided to work out later. Upward rows with 15 reps and about 60 seconds after finishing it hit me. My right arm BURNED. Left arm was fine.

Mystery solved. When you're having a tetanus shot try to refrain from physical activity shortly after that works the muscle area where the shot was administered.
