I think I was bitten by a stray cat eight months back. I do not know if it landed its fangs on my finger but I noticed a very small dot sized wound on my finger. I have received three PEP regimens and the last regimen was six years back. I did not receive the last shot on that year but my two successful shots are complete. I frequently experience muscle twitches in my foot and legs because I love to walk home. I am seeing small white circles in my peripheral vision but when I look into it it is like disappearing. Is this a fruit of my imagination? Am I covered with that vaccine? Do I have rabies?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have read through your question and would like to tell you that the chances of getting rabies from a cat bite are very less. And since you have received a regime of anti-rabies it erases the chances of getting rabies. The muscle twitches you are experiencing may be happening because of some other reason. Most common reason being electrolyte imbalance. Drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated. If you still experience these twitches get yourself checked by a physician.
