I have posted my story a few weeks back. Now 4 months post last shot, I still have muscle aches, neuropathic pains from head to toe. Ongoing diarrhea. The anxiety has calmed down a bit.

But I too have THROAT ISSUES since 12/2019. Throat feels swollen/dryish and overall just bothersome. Started with a dry cough and seen by PCP who simply said it was a virus, to f/u only if I developed a fever...which I never did. To make it worse, the anxiety medications I was put on have listed side effect of (dry mouth) and these made my throat 10 x worse. I now have to control anxiety without meds.

I checked online concerning throat and anxiety can cause muscles to tense and this can cause the feeling of throat thickening. I plan on going to a doctor once the Covid-19 is no longer a threat. If you are on anxiety medications, this may be making the throat worse.

I use throat lozenges and biotene spray to keep throat moist, along with lots of water, ice chips also help. Theraworx is like magic to control muscle aches. If you follow up with a doctor on the throat, please keep us posted on the outcome. I have noticed improvement in my side effects and keeping a positive attitude has helped a great deal. Keep the Faith.
Itís been almost 2 weeks since my last shot and my throat goes dry off and on, it also feels like there something stuck in it. So I feel your pain. The worst of it is gone helpfully. I havenít had a bad flare in a week now, just a little weakness and some muscle pain now and then. Looks like the worst is over. The anxiety has decreased severely too!! Thank goodness for this forum and everyoneís experience, it has truly got me through. Iíll keep checking on this site weekly just to keep everyone updated and to give others comfort if they find themselves in the same situation. Thanks everyone!!

I've stumbled on this group two weeks ago when I was in the midst of the worst time of my life. My case was weird one. One day while playing cricket, a dog entered the field and took away the tennis ball we were playing with. I retrieved the ball and played with it. I washed my hand but only with water from a bottle, not very thoroughly. And then up on fixing the rubber grip on a bat and was at it for more than an hour and I happened to skin the palm of my right hand. A little patch of about 8mm dia. It didn't bleed. And I forgot about for three weeks until I was reading about corona virus and remembered about rabies. Thus began the spiral of my googling about it, doubting of my chances to very rapidly believing that the end is nigh. Enter anxiety. I have a little baby girl who just began walking. Oh how I wept thinking of how stupid I was for not washing my hands properly and for not getting vaccinated soon enough. I met a few doctors who totally brushed off my worries. But fuelled by anxiety, symptoms began showing. Lightly numbed right thumb and index finger which twitched a couple of times. Tightened throat. Seeing my plight, a doctor friend of mine in consultation with an MD suggested I get the vaccine anyway. I got the first one when there was heightened numbness in the right palm, cold feeling as well. I then stumbled upon this group and read most of the stories and my fear vanished. As of now, it's been a week since the last shot. Various locations in the body have been experiencing some very mild twitches, coldness etc. I'm sure there will be more to come. Once in a while doubt creeps leading to anxiety. Thanks to Batbite and others, Im coping up!

Thank you for sharing your experience, and may everything go well for you post vaccine. We all have a soft heart for stray and loose animals, but it is so important to remember that it doesn't take a bite, just a lick and broken skin. Thanks for the reminder.

After my first shot my right arm and leg started tingling for a couple of hours and when that stopped my right thigh felt extremely weak. Then the next day my right jaw felt tight and numb then I got a headache. I also had urinary urgency too. The symptoms will come and go but it does get better. I still flare ups that involve fast heartbeat and an anxiety feeling, or muscle weakness but itís not as intense as it was when I first got the shots. I havenít had a really bad flare in about a week now. Still donít feel normal but much better overall. It will get better, hang in there!

Nice to read that you are doing good. My case seems scary as of now. I have had mild loss of sensitivity on my limbs to a varying degree. There was occasional pins and needles and a constant worry that my limbs were weakening. I'm a 32 yr male of lean build. Muscles are just about minimum. A week after the last shot I noticed that I don't really 'feel' my muscles. I can control them and found no motor changes. And day before yesterday I found out that I'm not sweating enough. I live in Chennai and I used to sweat profusely. Now my arms and legs hardly do. My head and trunk seem to be doing better. I checked by standing in the afternoon sun for a while. I'm utterly scared. With no hospitals open and the lock out for covid19 I have no means of of getting tested. I consulted a neurologist online who suggested anxiety meds for 2 weeks. Came here hoping to find some answers.

Hi unbitten! It will get better. Iíve noticed that my sympathetic system gets out of wack sometimes; irregular heartbeat, fast heart rate at weird times but itís not as intense now as it was 4 weeks ago. If the symptoms tend to come and go then you should be fine. Lots of us on here experiences perceived weakness and not real weakness to the point where you canít grasp something or stand. I notice that my flares are worse at night and that makes sense because cortisol levels drop at night and a lot of the symptoms are caused by inflammation and cortisol suppressed inflammation. Anyway try to take it one day at time. It will probably get worse before it gets better but it will get better. Your flares will decrease as time goes on. Itís not all in your head and itís not just anxiety.

I received the first two rounds of RabAvert rabies vaccine (immunoglobbulin plus initial vaccine and then the 2nd vaccine a couple days later) for bat exposure. There was a bat in the house in our daughters' room when my wife woke up in the middle of the night and found a bat flying around their room. The county health department was notified by our landlord, and they in turn called us and insisted that everyone in the home get the rabies vaccine since we couldn't confirm how long the bat was in our house and no one witnessed it entering. NOTE TO GOOGLE SEARCHERS - IF THERE IS A BAT IN THE HOUSE (OR YOU ARE EXPOSED/BITTEN BY A POTENTIALLY RABID ANIMAL) CATCH IT AND HAVE IT TESTED FOR RABIES!!! It could save you lots of pain.

Anyhow, about 2 hours after the 2nd shot I began to feel pins and needles, numbness, and tingling in the arm where the shot was administered and it spread to my left foot and put my brain into a deep fog. I finally went to bed around 2 AM and felt somewhat better besides the pesky light tingling in my left foot in the AM. But symptoms would creep in each day since then. I received the 2nd shot on Aug 8th, so about 2 1/2 months ago, and I have been on a roller coaster ride of side effects ever since then. Luckily, perhaps even by the grace of God, neither of my two daughters nor my wife have experienced any of these symptoms and I wish it to stay that way.

My left foot/leg and left hand/arm are most affected it seems - although it does not discriminate since at times both legs and both arms are tingling/pins/needles and even occasionally go a bit numb. But most of the time it is my left leg/foot and my left hand/forearm that flare up. It comes and goes all throughout the day - and recently it went away for about a week. Then, about a month ago, during the week of not much tingling/pins/numbness, my eyes would feel sore and I would get headaches multiple times a day. Now all symptoms come on daily at vary degrees of strength. For example, I awoke in the middle of the night a few times with both arms numb and tingly and my heart would race and beat irregularly. Today, I awoke to tingling and pins in both my feet and the foggy mind that tns spoke of in the first post. I make it to work just about every day as I have a desk job, but there have been days where I cannot put 2 and 2 together and my body feels like it is falling apart and I have had to stay home twice now in the last 2 months and I fear it will be more.

I feel my condition peaked around week 4-6 - but it is hard to tell if things have gotten worse, esp since there was a week of almost symptom-less days in between. If anything, I am about the same, maybe a bit worse than weeks 4-6. I have a laundry list of symptoms, but I'll list them all in order of what bothers me most currently:

Tingling/Numbness/Pins&Needles in feet/hands/legs/arms(60-80% of the time - different limbs one day to the next) - brought on a limp in my left leg since it is most affected so far
foggines in thought(70%)
fatigue/just plain slow at doing things (60-70%)
headaches(50% of the time)
eye pain/discomfort (behind eyes mostly)(50%)
facial numbness (cheeks, rarely lips)(25%)
muscle/joint pain - mostly knees, sometimes forearms and wrists (20%)
heartbeat skips (10%)
neck pain (10%)

Tns and ATX both spoke of having somewhat similar symptoms and now poor SaraBee's daughter, but I am very curious about all symptoms others have had and the time table of when they came/went and when they began to feel better.

Thanks everyone for making and adding to this post. These posts and other sites are all I have right now. I have a nuero appointment this week, but who knows what that will lead to.
Hello has anyone had a good outcome? I've received my second shot today and I've been in a panic all day. Headache diarrhea now my legs feel numb and slight prickly feeling in my right hand and foot. Plus it feels like my foot may fall asleep but it's kinda in limbo.... can anyone talk to be tell me what to do? Went back to the er 2 hours after the 2nd shot with racing heart and a general warm feeling all over my body and I was itchy but no hives. Thinking about not getting the other 2. I came in contact with a coyote pup. I was holding it in a thorn patch so idk if it scratched me or not. They are doing the rabies vaccines as a safety measure.... please someone help im.so scared

Hello I'm not even sure if I'm doing this right but I'll give it a try.
3 days ago I may or may not have been scratched by a coyote pup my own stupid fault but anyways i have 2 young kids at home and after I help the darn thing I started freaking out. I help the pup in a thorn patch so I have no clue of it scratched me or not. My friend who was with me Insists it did not and it was just cut up by the thorn bushes but either way the pup laid on my arms that were cut open. The doctors say that if it cleaned itself before I picked it up I could be at risk and it's best to continue with the series. I had my second one today 4 26 2020 an hour after I had a racing heartbeat and I felt very warm no temp but felt very warm. I went back to the er I was told to expect side effects every vaccine has them well I then developed diarrhea I have crohns so I'm use to that well I started to have a feeling of numbness in my right foot and hand and now I have a prickly feeling too.... I'm freaking out and wondering if I should even get the other 2 vaccines.... this has be scared to death... advise please because idk what the heck to do

Hello LakynBerringer 90, glad you found us on this site, sorry for your current experiences. As Unbitten recently reminded us, broken skin and animal saliva = rabies risk. As unpleasant as your symptoms are, I'd follow the doctors advice and finish the series. Your Crohns complicates things for sure. Ask your doctors about the option of taking an antihistamine before your next injections, it is what got me through the series with my allergy problems. My heart goes out to each and every one who experiences these neurological side effects. It's hard. An awful choice between the side effects and rabies. I had a "mantra" of sorts going through 2 1/2 years of neurological hell, "Rabies is a death sentence." And there is so much to live for. This past March (2020) marked three years since I was hit with the worst of my symptoms, and I am fine, doing very well. The decision is yours, but I'd advise listening to your doctors.
