Is drowsiness/dizziness after (PCECV) rabipur vaccine normal?

Not common: Not common but possible with any vaccine.

How would I know if I had a stroke? I had transient neurologic symptoms for 3-4 weeks that are now gone. These include dizziness,drowsiness, headache.

How do you prevent exhaustion in nursing school? I feel so tired from staying up late to study I nearly kind of a dizzy drowsiness. My first year.

How do you prevent exhaustion in nursing school? I feel so tired from staying up late to study I nearly kind of a dizzy drowsiness. My first year.

Also routine exercise is huge to oxygenate the brain and staying away from junk food eg eat plenty of veggies and fruits. There I just told you all that took me years to apply myself :) Be well. ...Read more
