I got bitten by my cat and the doctor wants me to get a booster shot. I don't dare. I am worried that it will trigger some other problem. Anybody has an opinion on that one? Thank you

I didn't know I was 'sick' with any of this lyme crap until I had a tetanus and flu shot back in 1999.

Sent me into a tail spin and then 6 months of testing.

I don't know if it was the tetanus or the flu shot.. but to this day I won't do either one just in case.

I feel I had this lyme/company and was dormate or remission.. and one of these or combo brought it 'out'.... just my feel on it.

Lyme, Babs, Fry Bug..... Whatever it is, may a treatment be discovered to make us all whole again!

Personally, I probably wouldn't do it unless I had stepped on a rusty nail in a barnyard! ( [Wink] )

I would be really careful on this one.

found this online:

negative reactions from
immunizations? Many believe some of them cause autoimmune disorders
such as ms. If you have lyme disease or another "hidden" ailment going
on, a tetanus shot can send you into an exacerbation that could have
very serious side effects.

I had a tetanus vaccination after an injury in 1990. I developed a
headache by that night that lasted for 3 months. Within a week of the
shot, I developed optic neuritis, the injection site swelled to the
size of an egg, and I had blindness in one eye for three years.
This
escalated to paralysis on the same side of the body as the blindness and
a neuro gave me iv steroids which sent me into a wheelchair three months
later. I have been dx'd with ms. (convenient box) I believe it is
probably severe late stage lyme. Whatever it is, I haven't been able
to find much relief. I am interested in Dr. Hulda Clark's book, A Cure
For All Diseases and am starting to follow some of her suggestions. I
am interested in colloidal silver treatments and the zapper she talks
about.

I would never get another vaccination of any kind, and never take
steroids again.

I had a tetanus shoot about 2 years ago. I don't remember having any problems.

While this is an old post, since the update for the changes proposed brought it to the top, wanted to add that for others reading who may find themselves in the same boat as the poster 5 years ago . . .

for a cat bite: bartonella should be considered as cats can often carry / transmit bartonella. One's LLMD and also their vets can best advise for the range of considerations.
