My 11 yr. old daughter is allergic to dog and cat dander so she gets allergy shots. She started these at the end of the fall this year. Her allergy symptoms are more like fatigue and swelling around the eyes more than anything. But last week they accidentally gave her 2 shots (twice the amount). The next day she was extremely exhausted more than normal, had muscle fatigue and her knee joints began to ache. By the next day her ankles ached in the morning as well. Her allergist didn't think the double dose of shots was to blame and had her tested for juv. arthritus. It came back negative.
Has anyone heard of symptoms like this from allergy shots or too much of the shots. It seems to make sense to me that if you're given twice the amount of something you're allergic to- that you body may react kind of haywire.
