Tetanus vaccine reactions

Hi, I ran a drill bit through my index finger by accident "careless" yesterday anyway my wife insisted I get a tetanus shot and x-rays ect. I got the shot a 9pm last night, about 11pm I started getting hives or rather whelps that come and go on different areas of only my lower body, it lasted till 1am, other than a sore finger and shoulder I feel pretty crummy, kinda bla.I got a tetanus shot 12 years ago and did ok.Any similiar experiences

Re: Tetanus vaccine reactions

did they also happen to Rx you any actual narcotic pain meds along with the shot?i am just wondering because what you described really sounds more like a possible narcotic reaction not so much a tetnaus shot reaction.any injected reactions "generally" would show up almost immediately because it is directed right into your system.tho some soreness at the injection site would be normal,your actual symptoms sound more like a med type reaction.How are you feeling now?have you had this reaction again?**

Re: Tetanus vaccine reactions

Hi actually that's all I got,I did get a scrip for Motrin 800 and a antibiotic but have not got them filled.They also did a betadine soak which I have used before.It's kinda odd but no it has not happened again,just a sore arm I dont understand is it was just my lower body,I spoke with a friend who had a reaction to a med and he said it occured on his lower body to?? I had severe hives about 8 years ago after taking a sulfa based antibiotic but it was all over me, so I no longer take those.Perhaps it was something I ate afterwards that triggered a reaction?
