Tetanus Misery

When I woke up yesterday, I thought a semi-truck had run over me in my sleep.

The evening before, I had received a Tetanus shot.

I was out of it all day yesterday.

Why was I so dizzy?

Why was I so tired?

Why was my neck so sore?

Why was my lower-back so painful?

Why did I have a terrible head ache?

Then I read this on this morning:

SIDE EFFECTS: This medication may cause irritation, redness, swelling, warmth, itching, bruising, pain and a hard lump at the injection site which may last a few days up to a week. Other side effects include a low grade fever, muscle or joint aches, headache, general body discomfort, flushing or itching.


Hoping this passes soon.

I feel terrible.

Every part of my body hurts and my head hurts really bad.

I have Parent/Teacher Conferences for the next four days.

I've GOT to pull myself together.

Call your doctor to make sure this reaction isn't anything to worry about.

When I got my last tetanus shot I had a hard lump on my arm for over a month. At least I didn't feel bad like your are.

I hope you feel better soon!
