I went for my second tetanus shot on monday morning. I got it on my left arm.
By evening, my entire hand had swollen and my arm was rock solid, hot and burning.
i wasnt able to tolerate the pain and couldnt sleep the night.
The next morning, i somehow cooked and drove to office. I called up my doc and asked her if this was normal.
My first TT shot, i had on my bums and it swelled up for a day or two but i didnt feel that much pain.
Doc said it was not normal, it cud be an allergic reaction and prescribed some medicines over the phone. she suggested i take crocin too incase i develop fever as my arm was aching really badly. It had swollen and looked like an elephant's leg!!!!
I took one tablet of the allergy and applied ice pack, after that it felt better.
In the night, i kept a hot pack on it and applied some balm. Now, the pain has reduced and so has the swelling....
So please girls, whoever has got to take a tetanus shot, please be careful and check with your doctor.
Love to the other moms-to-be,
