Revaxis Vaccination

I had this injection on the 3rd May which includes Diphtheria toxoid/Human poliovirus type 1 inactivated/Human poliovirus type 2 inactivated/Human poliovirus type 3 inactivated/Tetanus toxoid and since then I have developed symptoms which have gradually become worse. The next day I felt uncomfortable with my left eye as if my eyelash was constantly in contact with my eye. I then felt numbness around my forehead which moved towards my eyelid and the top of my head. I was told that it was due to my trigeminal nerve first branch being affected and that it should improve in time. Unfortunately it has not improved and I have developed a tingling and burning sensation in my left arm and leg (the injection was given into my left arm). At times I have found it hard to breath and I have felt a pressure on my lungs. Are there any other cases that are known like this and what could I do to improve? Can someone please help me?

Hello,

Based on the symptoms that you have described, you may have had an adverse reaction to the vaccination. You should follow-up with your health care provider regarding your symptoms.
