My fiance had a Rhogam shot last night. She has been having pretty severe nausea and lower back pain. Is it possible she is having a hemolytic reaction to the shot? Should I take her into the ER?(Being that the ER is the only place we can go, her government assistance is being delayed by her employer wage verification and she has no insurance/doctor/OBGYN).Please help.

I seriously doubt this is related to the injection. Most likely it is coincidental but continuing pain and nausea might indicate a urinary tract/kidney infection or other problem so if it continues she should see a doctor. Hopefully she will be able to get into prenatal care soon. Lower back pain is a common complaint of pregnancy but the only way to be sure it is not something else is to have it checked out. If it gets better or is intermittent, rather than constant, it can probably be watched.
