Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.
The initial symptoms like wound and infecion are apparent at the time of bite but there is a longterm effect which is caused by bacteria in the cat mouth reaching human blood stream and settling in joints and heart covering leading to chronic infection. The symptoms are usually joint pain and chest pain and other cardiac problems if it gets worse. Although your symptoms do not correlate much with cat bite but it is still ok to get an echo and rule out heart infection.
