Brief Answer:
Tetanus shot, right?

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

You mean tetanus shot, right?

In this case, since the shot was done four months ago, it is very unlikely that it is the cause of your symptoms.

I think conditions such cervical spondylosis, should be considered and evaluated further.

Please discuss with your Doctor about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
