Hi 

Ive been following this forum since June after I got my 1st Pfizer shot. It has been a struggle and I feel for everyone going through this. After my 1st shot, I just got a sore arm for a few days. Then I went for a run a week later and I got dizziness, lightheaded, and nauseas. I didn't think anything of it as I was healthy before. Then about a few days later I started get a sour and burning feeling in my stomach. I also got fatigued more while working my office job. Shortly after I had terrible back of neck stiffness and pressure and the vertigo/dizziness (feeling of being on a boat kicked in). A few days after I started getting panic attacks and anxiety. I also couldn't exercise let alone walk without my symptoms flaring up and getting extremely fatigued. Not to mention the next day my symptoms would get worse. All of these symptoms (particularly the head pressure and dizzneness) has persisted. I had to get my 2nd shot late October due to my employer mandate. 

I had all the listed side effects for the 1st week: i.e. headaches, dizziness, fatigue, tiredness, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea , nausea. My diarrhea and nausea and various other GI symptoms have persisted. I also got light sensitivity, sensitivity to crowded places and movement, ear pressure/clogging, and nose pressure/clogging. My head pressure and dizziness since the 1st vaccine worsened. However, and rather ironically, these side effects I have been able to just manage and live with... The worst thing to deal with is the anxiety, panic attacks, and fatigue. For the fatigue, even stuff like walking, reading a book, and talking make me out of breath and fatigued and cause my symptoms to flare. The anxiety is debilitating and not only prevents me from doing everyday things due to a fear of my symptoms relapsing , but having anxiety in itself make my symptoms worse. It's kind of a self fulfilling prophecy. I also developed insomnia which makes it hard to go to sleep. I have these heart palpitations everytime Im about to nod off. Sometimes this creates a panic situation and I feel like passing out and lightheaded  so I have to get up and calm myself down before trying to fall asleep again, which I eventually do but it's a terrible sleep. 

In terms of medications , I haven't taking any. Perhaps due to my GI issues , which is really sensitive and I get diarrhea and GERD often , I can tolerate medication well. I get bad side effects. So I just take omega 3 and vitamin c and calcium vit d. I took probiotics but for some reason it made my anxiety worse. I had IBS before this vaccine, and I have a really weak gut system.i can't help but assume this is related because a poor gut could mean poor immune system and also it affects mental health...

From my discussions with my GP, my symptoms are very similar to long covid... And I think this has to do something with my nervous system. Maybe it's inflamed, or over stimulated , or something else...who knows. Not even the docs know....

I do want to end with hope. After about 3 months from my 1st vaccine, many of my side effects calmed down such as the anxiety and fatigue. I was even able to exercise, albeit lightly. The only thing that sort of persisted without change was this inner head pressure (like in the center of my head and spinal cord) and if I stay still or even move my head I get dizzy. 

Of course I was kind of coerced into the 2nd dose, and it's been a rough 3 weeks so far. But I know that in a few months or maybe weeks things will get better. 

Im hearing that the more shots you get the more severe the reaction. So if the booster gets mandated, Im not getting it.

@medee I wrote about my experience on the page 374. My whole experience lasted approximately 3 months. When I though that I am already fine, I relapsed. The symptoms that lasted longest were heart palpitations during night. I could not sleep well because of that. But everything slowly went away. Now I am about 3 months without relapse and back to my normal. 

Hi, what did you do for the palpitations? Or did you let it subside without medication?

I did not have heart palpitations since last one month. Went to a Neuro who gave tablets for nerve pain/anti depressant... took 1 on Sunday since then I have bad heart palpitations.

Now its little less bit still not gone completely. I'm wondering how is it that one tablet caused it to go crazy for so long. By now I qas hoping it will go back to normal as I stopped taking that tablet. Not sure if the side effect of the tablet is still there or the tablet has really caused some issue in my heart. I'm concerned.

I did not take any medication specifically for the heart palpitations. Only magnesium. I let it subside. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and was not able to fall asleep. I had to wait hour or two while it went away and I was able to fall asleep again. I bought blood pressure monitor and when I felt palpitations I measured my BP and pulse. My BP was normal and pulse rate was only slightly increased. It helped me to calm down a little bit. Then my heart palpitations started to be less frequent and finally went away. Thanks god. 🙏 

How long did it take to calm down. Mine began post taking an anti depressant tablet. I have developed chest pain and palpitations too. It has been 4 days still the palpitations haven't subsided. It is almost continuous.

It took around 3 months. Palpitations were not constant. Mostly occuring during night (strong heart beat and pulsation in the head). Now when it is gone I feel the real difference. I do not want to experience it again. 

How did you manage to live like this for 3 months? I am already going crazy and very scared. I too have developed head pulsation and could not sleep last night.

Went to a Cardio yesterday who as usual didn't believe it was the vax but I did tell him about the medicine side effect. I did have chest pain too and so have been given some tablet. I am too scared to take anything. I did tell him that as well. He told me to trust the doctor but how to.... I'm scared!

This vaccine is not a joke... I feel so stupid to have not researched about these horrible side effects before taking the jab... if i had visited this forum i would have never taken this crap.... I hate to live like a walking zombie.... Everyone i know, who took the vaccine were all back to normal in 2, 3 days as if nothing happenes... seriously?.... Its been like 10 weeks now and still couldn't see any light at the end... One of the worst mistake i have ever done in my life is taking this vaccine...

I read that single shot of the Az vaccine has about 5 x 10*10 viral vectors...

The question is which cells do they infect inside our body?

It could be any cell, it can go to any organ and infect it and produce viral spike protein and the poor infected cell would be destroyed by our own immunity cells...

So why long haulers? may be our body hasn't been able to create enough antibodies against the spike protein and may be our Tcell mediated immune response are activated and it is taking weeks to clear all those infected cells,but again which cells are infected is a million dollar question...

How long we have to face this nonsense? when are we going to be ourselves again?when does this medical fraternity going to accept and address our issues?

 

Hi, how are now? Are you better?

@medee first couple of days on meds does give relief but I think our bodies are so over reactive that we seem to get all sorts of reactions. Honestly I haven’t found anything to really help I get relief off some meds but they cause other issues. I’ve found that it seems to be flare ups so you will feel worse during some weeks but then they do seem to calm down for a couple days, personally I feel as time goes by some issues seem to drift off and others come up. A hot water bottle seemed to help when I was having bad chest pains I would hold a hot water bottle on my chest. Might of just been a comfort thing but seemed to take the edge off. 

How are you feeling now? Has it gotten better?

Went to see a Cardio yesterday, the pulse rate was slightly high due to the meds prescribed by the Neuro which got me a side effect.

Ecg came back normal. Have been prescribed a 5 days medical course - a tablet for acidity, a tablet for chest pain (seems like a beta blocker) and one for anxiety - which I don't plan to take.

Had the acidity one last night but not sure if it caused any side effect. I am not sure if I must go for the beta blocker which I have to take it in sometime. Very scared!

My former colleague had bad syptoms after vaccination (neurological, blood pressure, palpitations). She tried many treatments, visited many doctors. And antidepressant fluvoxamine prescribed by neurologist for neurological syptoms helped her at the end. But doctor told her that initially her symptoms will become worse. Just not be scared. And then it will go slowly away. And after five months, many treatments she was finally feeling better and was able to go back to the work. So maybe discuss again antidepressant with the doctor who prescribed it, if it is normal and may be just temporary effect of antidepressants.

I took my 1st Astra Zeneca shot on 02 March 2021. After a week, around 09 March, I started to notice floaters in both my eyes. Im 38yrs old and have had no previous vision problems. 

I went to a ophthalmologist to get my eyes checked. After they dilated my pupils and conducted a thorough examination, there was no problems found. Only that my eyes were very dry due to long hours of screen usage (10hrs daily due to the pandemic lockdowns/remote work etc), so was prescribed some eye drops and a gel to use before bed. My floaters have reduced to a point where Im not affected by them. Apart from the floaters I also get eye strain, especially towards the end of the day while watching television. 

Funnily even my Mom who got her Astra Zeneca 1st shot on 02 March 2021, also had floaters develop in Feb 2021, BEFORE her first shot. Neither of us had Covid, at least that we know of. 

I now got my second Astra Zeneca Shot on 28 May 2021, after the recommended 12 weeks. I am now awaiting to see if there is any further deterioration or onset of floaters. Already on day 12 after the 2nd shot, I feel I am seeing a little more floaters than just before the 2nd shot. 

I have read about something called covid-mimicry, ie some people when vaccinated experience similar symptoms of covid, but more research needs to be done. 

@abi2021 I was wondering if your floaters worsened after the second shot. Also, can please share the eye drops and get that you were prescribed initially? 

Hello. 

No, did not notice any increase of floaters after my second AZ shot. I think the floaters were an effect of significantly longer screen usage (Vs. Pre pandemic as other activity has reduced eg sports, socialising being replaced by TV/Mobile/ Pc /iPad). 
So the drops and gel prescribed are as follows: (Worked well)

Drops: XLHA Eye Drops

Eye Gel to be applied before bedtime, by pulling lower skin under eye and sliding the gel in  : Acular LS

UK secretly planning to start potential vaccinations to kids as young as five from the spring. What is this insanity? 

Yesterday's news kids must wait three months after having had covid before having a single covid vaccine. Why is a vaccine even necessary if they have already had the real deal?

Finally some health professionals talking sense... sadly being labelled as antivaxers and conspiracy theorists...

@sara90 don’t know if it’s the same but I’ve got one right at the back of my neck where my scalp is, I think it’s a lymph node but it’s been like it for over a month now. Still not gone down I’m going to go back drs Monday! How long did everyone’s lymph nodes take to go down? X

If yes, How long did you have it for?

Thank you

Hi all,

did some of you guys get vision problems like visual snow after the jab? I have massive vision problems since my first Pfizer jab 6 months ago. All eye tests came back normal. Visual snow fits most to my symptoms. Also I have photosensitivity. I am so frustrated. Did someone get rid of this after a while?

I had severe photophobia for a couple of weeks, starting a few days after my 3rd jab. Any light triggered severe headaches and it seemed to exacerbate the vertigo. I also had flashing chevrons during this time and they are mostly gone, though I did see a bit a few days ago.

I am happy to report my photophobia is much much better!! I did stay in the dark for almost a week. For about 3-4 days, I had all the lights off, the shades drawn and had to wear my weighted black eye mask so ZERO light got in. That's how severe my reaction to light was. As I started to feel better, I just gradually opened my eyes to the "light", wearing dark sunglasses in stores and wherever there was light. It took a few weeks but it is definitely better, as is the blurriness and burning/eye pain. I just paid attention to my pain. At first, any light or movement triggered a headache; I'd feel a pulsing pain starting behind my eye that lead to a severe headache. So I made sure I only "went into the light" when I knew I could escape FAST and I did...it's important to listen to your own body and not try to keep up with friends, a lesson I learned the hard way a few weeks ago.

Hang in there! It should get better.
