Resolved Question:

For Dr. RavoofI developed severe and apparently permanent adverse reactions as a result of Hepatitis B vaccine.
About 4 years ago I was completely healthy and very athletic before this vaccination and have now
suffered severe, debilitating autoimmune side effects from this vaccine. I have joint pain in my little toes when I walk,
sometimes the right toes and sometimes the left toes. These started after vaccination.

Dear customer,

Thank you for requesting me.

What is your question?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
What do you think is the problem with my toes, I never had this problem before the vaccine.
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

Is there any limitation in movement of the toes or any external abnormality?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
There is no external abnormality, it feels like a constant pain and it hurts when I walk
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It hurts when I walk but when I'm sitting down or sleeping the pain isn't there on my toes.
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank for your reply.

This may be due to muscle ache or due to pain in the joints, and rarely may occur after receiving the vaccine.

Take care.

Do you think it's a musculoskeletal problem or Chronic Fatigue Synrdome?And do you think my upper left abdominal pain is Neuropathic pain or Muscular pain?
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

I think this is a musculo-skeletal problem.

Regarding your upper left abdominal pain it could be either, but I suspect it to be muscular pain.

It is a privilege answering your question.

Who diagnoses a musculoskeletal problem?
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your question.

A general physician will be able to diagnose this in majority of patients, but if he/she is unsure then the doctor may consult an orthopedic surgeon for further clarification.

Take care.

Please rate the answer with a positive rating.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Could Hepatitis B vaccine have caused musculoskeletal problems? I know of rare side effects of the vaccine.
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes this could be a rare adverse effect of the vaccine and is not a common side effect.

Take care.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Do you think upper left abdominal pain is visceral?
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Unlikely to be visceral since it is positional as you have described. Muscular abdominal wall pain may be aggravated or relieved by certain positions or changes in posture.

Take care.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Then I think it is muscular because when I change from a seated position to a non-seated position, the upper left abdominal pain goes away.
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

This is what I also suspect based on this characteristic of the symptom.

Take care.
