Nightmare PPD injection, please read!!

I recieved the tetanus ( preservative free) ( yeah right)  shot a few months ago,, and experienced some severe symptoms, fever, chills, severe muscle cramps...malaise, exaustion, headaches,  severe  vaccine shot site pain. this all lasted about a month, then, just as i was feeling better, i recieved the PPD injection as i was going to begin nursing school.  although the actual reading was negative, i am still continuing to experience injection site swelling, pain, and erythema, as well as shooting pain up my arm, my left breast is swollen and intermittenl painful, as well as being newly diganosed with lymphadema, i had a mammogram, which showed no evidence of cancer. My whole entire left side feels like its on fire, i have weakness in the left arm all the way to my shoulder, my shoulder is painful to move, i have been experiencing short term memory loss, left hand pain, burning in the feet, extreme insomnia, i  have pain at the injection site, it goes all the way up my arm, into my armpit, and into my breast. My left side of my neck is affected as well. the lymph glands are swollen, and painful, and i just am getting so frustrated. my blood work comes back normal with no infection. i was not experiencing any of this until i got the PPD injection.  WHen i got the tetanus shot, i experienced the cramping, the injectionsite pain, ect but it was going away, and then i got the PPD, and now wow.. its been two months!! the site where i got the PPD ( Left forearm) is still horrible looking. red, swollen, painful, burning, shooting pain.  i am at a loss.  I will be seeing a specialist in infectious disease, but do not feel hopeful as my PCP states that while there is something going on with my lymphatic system, and its not great, she has no idea on what to do next.   I am scarred for life from the TB, as it yet has to heal, i have left arm weakness, my whole left side feels swollen and hot,  I lost my right eye perferal vision, and even though i went to an opth doc, who stated that my optic nerve was ok , i still am experiencing this!! anyone have any ideas???
