The old name for tetanus was "Lockjaw" and it results in extreme
muscle stiffness (hence the locked jaw), muscle spasms and an extreme
sensitivty to any noise. It affects the central nervous system and
he'd probably have far more severe symptoms if he had it. He should
see a doctor if he hasn't had his shots.
Yes, I have told him to consult his doctor. BTW this episode is in
India. Over here we don't have the tetanus booster shots every 5 or 10
years. They have something which only gives protection upto 6 months.
Is there any blood test or any other way he could be tested to see if
has the tetanus germs in his body.
