Vaccination & Immunization Message Board

Vaccination & Immunization Board Index

I went to my friend who is osteopath for a tetanus booster because hadn't had a shot in 14 yrs. I go fishing so was worried about getting cut by old hooks or by rusty barb wire I climb under to get to some of fave hiking/fishing spots. Anyway my dr friend is out of town for 4 weeks so have no where to turn for help.

I've never had a serious reaction to any vaccination before. But shortly after getting shot the injection site started itching like crazy. A few minutes later I broke into sudden sweating and felt dizzy. I started feeling better after awhile other than the constant itching. I took some Benedryl and went to bed. Now almost a week later I still have a hard tender knot on my arm. It feels like a rock is under skin. It hurts a lot, those has eased off some from the excruciating pain the first few days. Now when I have had flu shot I would get minor bump on arm for a couple days then always went away. This still hurts and has me worried. After getting the shot from her nurse I THEN learned it also had diptheria vaccine in it too. Fourteen years ago I received a tetanus shot in order to be permitted in college. Had no reaction then. No idea if that one contained diptheria vaccine too. Twelve years prior to that at 9 yrs old was given tetanus shot after bicycle wreck that required stitches. And before that received the usual early childhood vaccination for it in order to get into kindergarten.

Why am I having bad reaction & reactions that are not listed for these two vaccines? Nurse gave me pamphlet about it & have searched Internet and found I am not having reactions anyone has ever documented (that I can tell) for this vaccine. Have I just had too many shots? What can I do to feel better and make the knot disappear?
