Hi,

still going through a variety of symptoms. The sunburn feeling is the most uncomfortable. The pins and needles come and go but aren’t as prominent as they were.I think we just have to wait for the antibody levels to drop to a lower level. The good news is we didn’t get symptoms after the 2nd shot so our threshold is higher. The bad news is our antibody level is higher  now after the 3rd shot so it’ll probably take a few more months to drop to a level where our symptoms go away. I’m just managing the symptoms with Tylenol and Advil. I tried Lyrica for a week but it zonked me out and given a choice between that and the burning, I think I prefer the burning. I tried all the vitamins (B12, folate, thiamine omega3 , etc.) but I think the one thing  that’s going to work best is time. Try to eat well, do some easy exercise (I’m trying to walk a couple of miles in a park everyday)  and do your best to keep your spirits up (that’s the hardest one for me at the moment). I know some people who were much more compromised than me from this a year ago and they’re fine now. Everyone heals at a different rate. I always seem to be worse from colds and flus and take longer to recover than the people around me so I might have an overactive immune system. Best wishes

Hi there,

for me the burning feeling has only appeared twice and not very intense. Mainly numb feet and tingling all over with the odd anxiety attack now and again.

ive always eaten very clean as I run ultra  marathons but now I am eating even cleaner, everything natural, tuna eggs and beans for protein then vegetables and fruit.

also taking a host of vita and supplements to try to speed the detox up.

im going to have a blood test to measure antibody levels in my blood to see if I’ve actually had Covid recently and how many antibodies the vaccine has given me….

I agree that I think it is a time thing and we can only help it along by feeding our system good nutrients, sleeping well and exercising moderately.  

good luck and let us know how things go…

@kim-h your story is exactly the same as mine.  10 months for me too, and still tingling im my legs and groin area, sometimes back too. Such a nightmare!

We are living a nightmare 🙁 
Mine has settled down a lot over the last few months, it’s mainly my feet & legs tingling but less then before & I sometimes get a tight skin feeling on right leg… today for whatever reason I seem to be having a flare up & have a bit of burning but it’s less then before so hope it’s fading away. Did you just have the one jab?

@philroy I had zaps and vibrations before the third shot. Numbness and tingles only started after the third.

@kim-h I had 2. My symptoms started after the second, 4 days after. I too was feeling less tingling, then around a month ago, it all kicked off again. It's made me so frightened I have something horrendous wrong with me. Off to the dr next week because I'm so scared. I wish I'd never had the pfizer jab. Funnily enough, when I had no  vaccines, I caught covid and had very few symptoms. When I caught it again in jan this year, after 2 jabs, I was really poorly.

I am taking multi vit & mineral complex plus vit b12, vit d, vit c, magnesium.

then I always eat very clean & natural. Breakfast is bananas, apple and a protein yoghurt and blueberries.

lunch is a leafy tuna salad, with turmeric sprinkled on and a dressing of olive oil with vinegar.

dinner is sometimes a piece of fish like trout or salmon with vegetable like broccoli or green beans and advocado.

I drink about 12 mugs of natural green tea during the day.

No processed foods at all.

@philroy I had zaps and vibrations before the third shot. Numbness and tingles only started after the third.

I remember having hot flushes in my legs after the first 2 shots, a lot of itching in my lower legs and maybe the odd pines and needles.  AFter the third, the same as you, the pins and needles and numbness in feet has really taken off.  Also tingling in other parts of body the occasional twitching and sometimes a general feeling of stuffiness in my head.  I have just had to day an full antibody blood test to measure the level of antibodies  and it will also tell me if i have virus antibodies which will mean that I have had covid at some stage. Will get results in 4 days time...

Hi JessM,

Thanks for your message to me. I was unable to send a private message as I guess I have not posted enough.  An update -- I am now 1 year, 1 month from my initial J&J vaccine.  Unfortunately, my symptoms continue and I have not received a booster due to my ongoing symptoms.  Since my last post, I have seen an Integrative Medicine doctor who prescribed many supplements and acupuncture -- these have not helped.  In fact, several of them made me feel worse with increased tingling and vibrations.  I saw a second Neurologist at a "Complex Diagnosis Clinic" -- she acknowledged these symptoms were vaccinated related --- she has been seeing many patients like us and they still do not understand what is causing it. Given the similarity with long COVID symptoms, she thinks it is related to our immune response to the spike protein. I have paresthesia in my legs and feet and nervous system dysautonomia.  I am starting to be concerned that these conditions may be chronic.

@karenmadsen Thanks for your reply.  I'm sorry to hear you are still dealing with this after so long. Do you feel your symptoms have atleast improved a little or are they getting worse? Is there anything that you feel helps? I pray there will soon be some help for all of us as many more Drs are starting to acknowledge this as vaccine/covid related.
