Tetanus Vaccine Reaction

Most of the vaccine reactions listed are for the flu. I was diagnosed with "subacute GBS" six months after receiving a tetanus vaccine, even though my reaction was almost immediate. Has anyone been treated for this reaction due to a tetanus shot? I was taking Neurontin for the flailing (which has gone so I've stopped taking it), but the staggering and weakness remains. My hands were cramped and folded for several months. Now I can type and write a little, walk better but stairs are difficult, and still have trouble breathing. I feel that I am getting better, but now have the fear of getting out into the world again. I lost my job and now I have to start the interviewing process again and I worry that I will have a relapse. I really appreciate reading the stories that are so similar. Just curious about the tetanus.
