puncture wounds

I stepped on a galvanized nail in my landscaping. It penetrated my heel thru my shoe approx 1 inch based on how far the nail was sticking out of the wood. This injury occurred 24 hours ago. I had a Tetanus shot a few years back. Today I had vomiting and diharea. Could there be any connection to my puncture wound?

If the wound site does not seem excessively sore and it is not infected (red, swollen, hot, tender), it is very doubtful that there is any correlation.

I seem to recall that tennis shoes are particularly evil when is comes to puncture wounds. I believe that they harbor some malevolent bacteria. These cause bad infections in the foot, not v&d.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.
