What causes twitching all over body after dog bite?
You should have taken atleast 3 doses of ARV
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
As you were bit by a dog 10 weeks back after which you have developed twitching all over the body. As you a mentioned in your history that dog was vaccinated 2 days prior to the bite.
The vaccination status of the dog against rabies is very important. Vaccination is said to be complete only when the dog has given all the doses of anti rabies vaccine (Two doses of anti rabies vaccine should be given before the completion of one year and thereafter vaccine should be given every year).
You should have taken atleast three doses of anti rabies vaccine (ARV) on days 0,3 and 7 and observed the dog for 10 days.
Patient with rabies will have symptoms like fear of water (Hydrophobia), fear of air (Aerophobia), back pain, fever and headache. As you are stating that you are having generalized twitching it is not a known symptom of rabies.
I would suggest you to consult neurologist for your generalized twitching and found out the reason for this symptom.
Hope you are satisfied with this answer, if you have any further query it will be my privilege to answer them.
It is my pleasure to answer this query,
The symptoms are not in favor of rabies. Don't take any risk with disease like rabies as it is 100% fatal but it is 100% preventable.
In future don't be ignored regarding the available treatment for management of dog bite. Give the vaccine to your pet as per the schedule.
May be a some viral infection
As your symptoms are very vague those are not suggestive of rabies. It may be due ta a viral infection and generalized myalgia.
Since it's troubling you for few days, it would be worthwhile to rule out other viral infections. You can consult your physician, he/she will know about the tests.
