I had the shot 2 months ago, felt lightheaded and foggy within minutes, it's been down hill ever since... weakness, exhaustion, vibrating in legs and neck area, buzzing in my head, and confusion. Today I became very emotional, sobbing, not like me at all. Dr. sent me for bloodwork, waiting for results now. I'm scared at what is happening to me, please, any insight will be greatly appreciated. Thank-you, Brenda
Hi Brenda. I realize this post is old, but I was wondering about the conclusion regarding your tetanus vaccine.
I've had CFS for 28 yrs and am long overdue for a tetanus booster and I should also get a Hep A shot as we'll be traveling to South Africa.
Although I've never had a reaction to tetanus shots, I had a similar reaction to yours following a flu/pneumonia shot 15 yrs ago. It happened within minutes and I ended up in the ER several times with severe panic attacks and autonomic nervous system reactions. I've been on meds ever since.
Who knows if it was actually the vaccine or a coincidence. I was later dx'd with thyroid disease so that might have played into it.
It's a real tough decision whether to get vaccinated.
