Hardened muscles

I had fever on 10th nov and was taken to the hospital. The doctor ordered the nurse to inject me with a medicine. Since there was no place to lay down she injected me as i was standing. It's been 8 days and now the spot where she injected has swollen and hardened, the pain is unbearable and temperature is 100°F now.
