stupid nurse!!!!!!

sorry guys this is a bit of a rant!  Ok so i posted last week that my arm still hurt after having the whopping chough vaccine, Well this week i poped over to see my mum and took my jumper off and she gassped when she saw it. I had a huge egg size lump thats bright red and burning! she took me strait down to the docs and he looked at it and said that i had had a savere alergic reaction, so my mum asked if it said that i was not allowed tetanus jabs on my notes as both my mum and brother are very allergic to tetanus well it turns out it is on my notes and the nurse should of known that. It actualy comes up on my notes when you type certain things in, I know as im alergic to paracetamol and that flashes up every time i get a prescription from the doc!!! any way my arm is still killing not got a huge lump anymore but still hurts :( raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I always make sure any time I am getting meds or shots that they know what I'm allergic too. I have several different medicine allergies that are very dangerous. I can't even take aspirin :-/ , my husband is a medic so he double checks everything for me before hand cause we just can't risk it, I also carry a card with me and I'm having a key chain made that had all my allergies on if
