I'm trying to search VAERS and can't . Each time I click the I've read this BS statement I'm redirected right back to the same statement page. A little more than a week ago my sister got a tetanus shot. Over the weekend she started experiencing chest pains, which gradually increased in severity and also could sometimes feel the pain in her back. She describes it as spasms as it comes and goes like contractions. At one point the spasms were one right after the other and the pain was bad enough she went to the ER (she's one tough cookie and wouldn't go for something she didn't feel was really serious). They ran all sorts of tests and could find nothing wrong with her. According to them its not her heart, gall bladder, liver etc. They gave her pain pills and sent her on her way. It lasted all weekend and she said was still happening yesterday when I spoke to her, only reduced. I wanted to search VEARS to see if there were any similar reactions reported after a tetanus shot, but it won't let me! Can someone please take the time to see if you can search for chest/back pains as a reaction to a tetanus shot?
