What possible side effects of tuberculin skin test, other than local skin reaction?


Posted by tourneymom

My 22-year-old daughter just called from the ER in California--she woke up in the middle of the might with constricting chest pain and still has some pain in in the vicinity of her heart. She had a tuberculin skin test about 36 hours earlier, and I'm wondering if this could be connected. She has no known heart issues, no high blood pressure, but is on Cymbalta. I recognize theat there could be various other, hopefully benign causes of such chest pain, and presumably the doctors will evaluate thoroughly, but I wonder if there is a possible connection.
