Possible side effects from a meningitis vaccination

Patient : I recently received a meningitis vaccination about two days ago. I have, also, had a chest cold for a few days. Today I was driving and my arms started to tingle and feel numb. My hands cramped up and every muscle in my hands contracted. I was unable to use them for about a 3 minute time period. It almost felt like I was having some sort of localized seizure in my hands. I am, also, running a fever of 99.7 F. Could this be caused by the vaccination? Why did my hands cramp up?
