I had a weird reaction recently to shots... Monday I got booster Tetnis/DPT along with the flu shot. I have had the flu shot yearly because of asthma with no reaction. This year being gfcfsf because of non celiac gluten intolerance, casien/soy allergy I had a reaction a couple of days after the shot... woke up Wednesday evening struggling to get breath in and the site of the injections was red and inflamed. the tetnis/DPT more so than the flu shot side... Nebulizer (albeuterol treatment helped reverse some but took days) Has anyone ever had this reaction or any ideas... breathing is back to normal now, still really tired since it took several days to get breathing back on track... I have already contacted my Pulmonary specialist because it was breathing that was affected... and wondering about the delayed reaction... from what the pamphlets said the reactions like that should have occurred within hours not more than 48 hours afterward.
I've reacted to some pain meds but not local analgesia's in shots. I thought I did once but it turned out to be the worst dentist EVER who didn't put the shot in the right spot and it felt like I didn't get anything so felt everything he did. I will say I knocked my jaw off the cartilage on one side so have to be careful on that side and he wasn't, not to add that the filling was so bad my next dentist reported the bad one to the dental board.
Is there any one out there besides me that has a problem with local anesthetics. I don't have a true allergic reaction, but I do feel like I've been hit by a truck for a couple of days after. I usually don't use them, but did recently for a dental extraction. Felt awful for 4 days. No dentist I have encountered has any explanation. I've been like this since I was 4.
