My daughter just turned 4, and had her 4 yr check up today. They gave her the DTaP in one leg and Polio is the other. She has always been on the dramatic side when it comes to pain. She is complaining that it hurts her to stand. I believe her, and feel sorry for her, but I know she exaggerates at times. How did your kids feel after these vaccinations?? Were they in a lot of pain? Is it normal? I know the Tdap can hurt like no other, but she wasn't like this the last time.
Normal reaction. When I got my tetanus booster I couldn't even use my ark for a day or so and even after that it killed to raise it up! Children's ibuprofen should help and encourage her to walk on. I know it hurts but moving it around will help.
