Rabies Vaccine positive impact on my Liver Enzymes?
I realize this sounds odd and may just be a coincidence, but I thought I would ask.
For the past dozen years, maybe even longer, my liver enzymes has always been elevated. Nothing too crazy, I think my ALT was 66.. sometimes a little higher, but almost always consistent at 66. Specialist didn't seem concerned as it really never went higher.
About a month ago, I had another blood test. ALT still at 66, no surprises.
About a week before that, I cleaned up trash after a raccoon had been through it... i had cuts on my hand so it was a dumb move. went and talked to a doctor about it and he said while possible, the chance of there being saliva containing rabies being on the trash and getting into my wounds was relatively slim.. I really didn't worry about it.
Then things got wierd... had an insane level of non-stop anxiety for at least a week... thing got a little better after that. Head felt odd (empty) and my left hand kept itching every day. I went to see another doctor who contacted the health dept. They said the rabies possibility was minimal but the not worth chancing, so I started receiving the shots. That was 22 days after the exposure which is normally considered a bit late.
anyway, i had another blood test recently (about 1 month after the test I mentioned above) and guess what.. liver enzymes back to normal after all these years. AST, ALT 22 and 37 (I may have the numbers reversed).
Just a coincidence (I'm assuming this) or could have the rabies shots cleared up something else going on with my liver? I realize this is a totally odd scenario and question, but I wanted to ask.
