Patient :Hello. I'm 22 years old and received a chicken pox vaccination a little over 30 hours ago and since then, the injection area has swelled dramatically. It's incredibly itchy and hard and it's becoming more painful to even lift my arm. I also have an extremely bad headache, my head begins to pulsate with pain if I try to get up or turn over in my bed and my body temperature continues to rise. I'm also extremely exhausted and have had diharreah. I know some of these are common side effects but this headache is more like a migraine and it literally feels like someone is squeezing my skull. What do I do?
