I was given antibiotics and diazepam injection for tetanus.

I had a routine physical on Monday 17th, 2017 and the doctor said I needed a tetanus shot for it was almost 10 years since I had one. On Tuesday morning I started with spasms in my left side of neck then I was having migraines and headaches for days now, and then I started a sinus infection on Saturday morning. Then on Sunday I had a fainting spell which I thought was due to my vertigo but now I'm wondering. Today I woke up and I'm having difficulty in breathing. I wonder if this is all do to with the shot or I am just having symptoms that are not related. I'm a pretty healthy 51 year old and I was fine before having this shot.
