I'm currently in Istanbul. Yesterday afternoon i went to get a pre-exposure rabies vaccine, as I'm travelling to South America soon. The doctor said the treatment was 4 shots, and gave the the first two on the spot - one in each arm. The doctor's english was limited, so it was a litttle confusing. I am thinking she actually gave me the post-exposure shots - does this matter?
Now I have a high fever, chills, aches and super sensitive skin... Will I have the same reaction when I receive my 2nd and 3rd shots?
Though if you are experiencing such severe reactions it is a good idea to see a DR again.
I felt as though I was beaten with a baseball bat and I had a fever and chills/hot sweats for a couple of days.
Drink HEAPS of water, keep hydrated and you should have milder symptoms for the next two shots. over 8 years ago
