Dog Bite 2 Mos Ago- Could Severe Headache Indicate Rabbies?
avatar
KMJ1989 posted:
I received a bite from a street dog who was acting abnormal two months ago. Yesterday I became very ill, severe headache at the base of my skull that throbbed even while not moving. Medication did not help much. I could not sleep. There was sensitivity to light and sound, and severe nausea. I have never gotten a migraine before but I assumed this was what I was experiencing. I also experienced severe body aches and could not move even an arm. This morning the headache lessened some, but it still hurts A LOT and I am still experiencing muscle aches/joint pain and fatigue. Oh and I feel very out of it (mentally). I am not running a fever however. Today I went to an urgent care clinic because I was concerned. My CT scan did not reveal any swelling. I did not tell the dr about the dog bite. Should I be concerned? My throat has also started hurting. Is this normal for someone suffering from a migraine?
