User :   Hello doc.
About a month ago I was carrying an old bucket. It dropped on my foot from about 6 inches high and it scraped my skin a little bit. It was rusted but I went and cleaned it right away with alcohol. There was no blood. I also received my Tetanus vaccine in may of 2007. Yet, I have been having muscle spasms. Should I go to a hospital?
