The paralytic form has a prodrome of bad headache and spiking fever, associated with pharyngeal spasms, delirium, agitation, and progressive weakness, 2-10 days after initial symptoms.

You may be experiencing some anxiety and vaccine rxtns all in one, but cdc reported last rabies case in us human in 2007, and that one not inoculated. By the way, cat incidence thrice that of dogs. ...Read more
