  • I would definetly call the nurse at your local hospital. Every hospital has an on-call nurse. You tell them your symptoms and they give you free medical advice. You could be having a severe allergic reaction. I wouldnt wait until it gets worse

  • i had them in both hips but they were given to me exactly 24 hours apart. I had a lot of swelling and tenderness in the area but no breathing problems. i would call ur doc or local l&D
