I am a 33 year old female who has been up to 3 months ago very active and full of energy. After being bit by a dog we couldn't find, I had to have the rabies shots.
Soon after that, I started feeling some cool sensations on my legs' muscles, mainly thigh on rigth leg and calf on left. Now these same muscles sometimes hurt. At the same time I started feeling some dull pains (not severe) on the upper right part of my stomach, they come and go and they seem to appear now after I eat. I also started feeling very weak, it is a strange sensation all over my body that tells me I can't move at all.
Lately, I have developed mild nausea and I feel my throat is closing on me and my headaches are becoming more frequent.
This weakness episodes started maybe once a week now they are everyday. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia just 3 days ago, but before, the doctor had told me to change my diet and eat light high protein food and avoid sugars and to eat every 3 hrs. Before, my weakness used to go away after I ate, now it gets worse. I was so weak yesterday I went to the hospital where they did a CAT Scan and it was negative, they also checked for my levels of calcium, magnesium and phosphate which came normal. My blood tests have been normal and a previews visit to the Neurologist said there was nothing wrong with my nerves. (He just tested different movements and to see if I had numbness and tingling.
However, I still feel the pain, in my legs mainly,and I get chills that run down my right side. I am getting weaker and it scares me that they can't find anything. (I have been to the hospital twice with this and my blood count, RBC and WBC are normal as well as my creatine,BUN, Carbon Dioxice, Chloride, Potassium, Sodium and Glucose.
I am getting extremely nervous about this, I can't no longer function the way I used to and no one seems to be able to help.
My doctor thinks it's stress and I don't feel he took me serious for 3 months until now. He said he will now send me to an endocrinologist and to take an ultrasound of my gullbladder. The other doctors I talked to at the hospital say that my symptons are not associated with anything they know and can't give me an explanation.
Could this be due to stress? Do you have any ideas that can help me? Is it possible that this is a reaction to the rabies vaccine? Can you catch deseases from animals besides rabies? Our cat died 2 months ago and they couldn't find the cause.
I am sorry this is so long but I feel I needed to tell all this for you to get a clear idea.
Thanks for your help!
