Covid-19 Vaccine side effects
Help/advice wanted! Pregnant and miserable. I am 31 weeks pregnant with a so far very healthy and very uneventful pregnancy. I held out on getting vaxxed until now because I was afraid to but the fear/pressure got to me and I got my first dose (Pfizer) last week. About 10 hours after I got it I woke up with severe cramping (scary if you are pregnant!) Baby is ok! And I had severe stomach pain & diarrhea for 4 days following. That has resolved and now I have this miserable head/ear pressure & pain that I can't shake. It's driving me insane and making me depressed not to be enjoying my last part of pregnancy. Instead of being happy, I'm miserable and anxious.
What can I take or do that has worked for you?
Recap of side effects:
-severe stomach pain & diarrhea (resolved)
-left eye blurry (resolved)
-left eyelid twitch (on and off)
-left ear ringing (on and off)
-itchy arm at injection still
-CONSTANT HEAD/EAR PRESSURE FROM HELL
Since I'm pregnant, there isn't a TON I can take but I do have some supplements/vitamins and Tylenol I can take....what should I be doing? These? Diet? Any advice appreciated.
Has anyone heard if donating blood helped any?
For those in the US and near Washington DC, there will be a "Real not Rare" rally to give voice to those who have suffered from the vaccine on Nov, 2. Please spread the word and invite press to attend.
Here is an article about the FDA advisor who abstained from recommending the vaccine to 5-11 year olds. I am concerned about the children, especially since about half of children may have had asymptomatic COVID and there seems to be an especially strong reaction to the vaccine if you have had COVID, whether it was detected or not.
@larag I have noticed the same thing. I thought it was just me. Which vaccine did you get and what side effects. I got the Moderna and it’s been awful for me I’m on month 3 😞
@nick Thank you, Nick. I have been so discouraged but your email has given me hope. I hope you continue to get better and please keep us posted on your progress and anything else you might find out about these vaccines.
It never occurred to me that I might get sick like this - months - and like most people, focused on the short term, immediate effects of the vaccine, never DREAMING I'd evolve from a busy editor to a basically disabled person sitting on my bed scared out of my mind and sick day after day
Just typing this has tuckered me out; I know you understand. Thank you for taking the time to tell us so much about your situation.
Interesting read about Covid 19 and possible inner ear damage in long haul patients. Wonder if some of this holds true for the few of us who took the vaccine and are experiencing similar symptoms. I hope they do more research and eventually realize that some folks who took the vaccine have also been struggling with the same kind of problems. We need validations that our symptoms are real and we need treatments to improve how we feel.
@larag so i recently looked at information regarding mcas. I think it may be worth looking at. Apparently the inflammation and mass cells can affect the reproductive system. What i am noticing is that many of us have some kind of vaccine induced mass cell activation which brings about the gi issues reproductive issues heart issues etc. Thats why the supplements that are being recommended help somewhat with symptoms. If we can get doctors to buy in to the fact that we are experiencing these issues they should be able to help us better.
@simplicity2378 I got pfizer and am on month 4 😔 it's just horrible. It's the relapses that mentally effect me the most now.
@carlyfernandez hi there, how are you feeling now? I am very similar to you, on day 10 now with all same symptoms. Did you get your 2nd AZ? The thought of it is making me worried.
For those with pots like symptoms, did you check for sick sinus syndrome with your cardiologist?
Does anyone else have a fluttering noise in their ear when they turn your head a certain way? Has it gone away if you are recovered?
