What can I do? Is anyone in the know about this? Cold/warm compresses? Moist/dry?

I can't even lift my arm to 90 degrees without experiencing the soreness.

No discoloration or swelling, just sore.

Take some ibuprofen if you want, but you'll probably just have to wait out the discomfort for a few days or a week. Some shots seem to be more painful than others...tetanus vaccine always seems to leave me sore for a couple of weeks.

I have allergic reactions to some vaccines and there's more to it than soreness...usually my arm is red and swollen with a large purple welt where I had the injection, and my face and throat swell. So if you're not having anything like that, it's probably just normal soreness, even if it is quite uncomfortable.

Medium pressure rub your arm up and down.

It'll wear off in a day or two.

Analgesic of your choice and warm compresses.
