What is tetanus?

Tetanus is an acute, often-fatal disease of the nervous system that is caused by nerve toxins produced by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. This bacterium is found throughout the world in the soil and in animal and human intestines. The bacterium can also lay dormant in its spore form for years before becoming activated and developing into a regularly reproducing bacterium.

Comment from: Chris Welch, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: November 11

I myself have stepped on a rusty, dirty nail while playing on a pile of wood. It went through my foot. I had gotten a tetanus shot. I was somewhere around the ages of 3 or 5 then. About 22, 24 years later I was offered the tetanus vaccination shot. I got the vaccination shot and a week or two later I was lying on my bed, and I literally could feel groups of muscles in my arms and torso relax and lose a bunch of tension. I felt so much better. So much that I realized that I had been experiencing such tension for years. After the first relief from tension twice after that I noticed two more tension reliefs. One happening in my legs the other in my neck and jaw. I am feeling so good physically now.
