Feeling lightheaded and migraine after having a tetanus shot. Blurred vision, getting angry soon. Reason?

Hi I had a tetanus booster 3 days ago and feel very lightheaded with migraine and a tight feeling in my head. I am constantly tred daydream a lot and get angry very easily now. I also daydream a lot now and don't seem to Interact with people very well now. Also now can't tolerate noise anymore and my eyesight is blurry. Do you think I may have sustained some form of brain injury from the mercury content in the tetanus vaccine. Just as a bit of background information I am 45 years old and per menstrual too so don't know if I am just worrying uneccesarily?

Hi dear,

Thanks for your query. You are worrying unnecessarily. Tetanus boosters have been given to millions of people without any significant side effects. Still it has not been proven concretely that thiomersal of tetanus vaccine has such significant side effects or else it would have been removed from the market. There are agencies which are strictly monitoring the side effects.

If your problem is persisting you need to show it to a physician as the symtoms fit the diagnosis of migraine and treatment will help.

Take care

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You need Psychological assessment and assistance.
The features are typical of Anxiety.

Migraine and blurred vision need Neurological assessment and assistance
MRI may be necessary..

It is unlikely to have anything with the tetanus injection....

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
