I was bitten and scratched by a feral kitten. Since we couldn't catch the offending kitten, I had to take series of rabies shots and two gamma globulin shots as a precaution after being bitten. I just have always wondered if there could have been any long term side effects that could have come from this treatment. Wondering if it could have anything to do with anxiety or depression or stress to my system? Does anyone have a similar experience? I have always wondered if it could have contributed to any of my later health problems?
Hi, G! I've never had post-exposure vaccines as I had pre-exposure and gamma globulins (occupational requirement), but I have had periodic boosters based on my blood titers for the past 40 years. The only effects I'm aware of are the immediate headache and muscle soreness after injections.
I'm in seemingly perfect physical health... especially for someone my age. :-) My MI issues have been present since my mid-teens so I don't associate it in any way with the vaccines.
I hope this gives you some reassurance...
Best regards, WC
G mc; Sorry I have seen many people go through all these shots because of the same problem as what you went through. I am so sorry you had to go through all of this. And same as Wildcat I have not seen people have reactions later. But I do know you have been extra sensitive to other thing and as you know because it is not listed does not mean it can't happen. please my friend if your still having problems call your doctor. friend for a long time dear
