CDC Split Type:

Write-up: On June 22, 2007 (3 weeks, 3 days after vaccination with the shingles vaccine Zostavax), my palms got intensely itchy and red. By night, I had large itchy red areas coming out all over my body, particularly on my thights and hips, which were much worse by 4:00 a.m., June 23. I went to the ER, and received a steroid injection and a prescription for prednisone. My hives initially improved, but then got worse again. By June 24th the palms of my hands were not only red and itchy, they were painful all day, even when I washed them. I was itchy, red, and miserable all day, even behind my ears, and by night the soles of my feet also hurt and my lips and eyes were swollen. After a miserable day, I went back to the ER at 9:00 p.m. June 24th (on my 40th wedding anniversary) and got a Benadryl injection and another steriod injection, while continuing the 6-day prednisone regimen. I went home at 1:15 a.m. June 25th and went to see my family doctor June 25th and received another steriod injection. By June 26th, 2:30 a.m., I had had an irregular heartbeat and tachycardia for 2 hours, and had some slight squeezing of my heart, so I went back to the ER. Tests did not show that I had had a heart attack, so I went home later and continued the prednisone. Hives on the hips and thighs finally improved, then hives started on my back and in other areas. I''m still having red hives and lots of itching on my back even today, July 2. Although the health dept. and my doctor know about my hives/possible vaccine reaction, they didn''t file a report with you, I don''t think. I did tell the health dept. that I was going to file one. 07/05/2007 MR received for ER visits of 6/23/2007, 6/24/2007 and PCP visit 6/25/2007. Pt presented with rash to hands feet & buttocks, pruritis, and red hands. DX 6/23/07: urticaria/rash without anaphylaxis. DX 6/23/07 Acute urticaria. Seen 6/25/2007 by PCP for ER F/U for allergic rxn. Pt was not taking prescribed prednisone and Benadryl. Had not filled scrip for Atarax. MD notes improvement. DX: Acute urticaria without anaphylaxis. 07/09/2007 Pt called to report on visit to allergist. 02/02/2010 I developed a histal hernia and gastritis several days after my hives. Whether they were related to the vaccine or to the medicine given to me for hives, I don''t know. I am still having these problems.
