So I turned once again to the internet and found out a couple of things. According to the CDC, pain meds are NOT okay before your shot BUT are OKAY AFTER THE SHOT. If taken beforehand these pain meds can interrupt the job if the cells responsible for immunity, so . . .
You should talk to your doctor, discuss the pain meds you are on and how long you should interrupt your regimen THEN after the shot you can resume them.
If you are hurting go ahead and take your aspirin, Tylenol, or voltarin and just wait . . . This too shall pass.
