@volam76 No worries and I hope you are beginning the road to recovery. after about 4-5 months it was less sever but I still have my bad days. Any improvement at all is a big win. You're right to see a neurologist and hopefully they will join up the dots, as it's way more common than we're led to believe!

 

All the best!

I have been reading this post for many months. Thanks to you all for helping to keep me somewhat sane. Symptoms started 3 to 4 weeks after my Moderna booster in November. At that time I was also exposed to Covid but never tested positive. In December I started getting tingling in my leg which quickly spread to both feet. In January my feet and ankles burnt, felt numb, stiff, creaky on the inside. By the beginning of March it had spread up my calves. I was now getting tingling in my thighs, face, fingers, arms. What the hell was wrong with me? 

I went to PCP who sent me for nerve conduction/ EMG. Normal. Neurologist doing test said I should get a skin biopsy to test for small nerve neuropathy. At this point my PCP was not very responsive so I contacted a very highly rated hospital system in my area and got a relatively quick appointment. The Neurologist was great. At my appointment with him the first thing he said - he had seen about 10 people with similar symptoms as a result of the Covid vaccine. But, advised we rule other things out. I had MRIs of the brain and spine, was evaluated for MS, had tons of blood work - all normal.  

Since the beginning of March (four months for my Covid VAX) my symptoms have plateaued. For a couple weeks it will almost go away and then I have a couple weeks when it comes back with burning tingling of my feet, legs, in my face, in the hands as bad as ever. I just had follow up with neurologist who wants me to report it to the CDC via VAERS system. Of course he said there’s no way we can officially say it is the vaccine. He has started me on Alpha Lipoic acid 600 to 1200 daily with a daily multi vitamin. To this point I have only been taking a vitamin D supplement and trying to eliminate all processed foods and alcohol for my diet.

Well, after reading all these posts eased my sanity. I am not the only one. I have been dealing with numbness & tingling, (arms, fingers, feet, & facial/head, carpal tunnel. My last Moderna vaccine was May of 2021. The 2nd shot (R) is when I experienced the blunt of its wrath on the body. Of course typical side effects but this included swelling in my fingers (thimb, index, middle (R) & thumb & index (L)). Swelling in my upper arm was really bad with reduced range of motion.  First shot was just swelling in thumb, index, middle finger (R) with reduced range of motion in arm. It subsided some to be anle to return to my physical demanding job. Approximately 2-3 weeks later is when my wrists started acting up. Notice muscle strength in shoulder (R) was decreasing. Subsided and came back. Been dealing with this for almost a year. I have been to numerous doctors which all have denied that the vaccine was the cause. Even after showing photos I took of side effects. Had 4 different diagnoses. One doctor requested an RA bloodwork/xrays done one my hands. Both were negative. Tested possitive for Covid the end of January of '22. After waking up from work, my hands & feet felt like needles were being drilled into them. I knew right then I got Covid. Luckily that only lasted 1 day. My hand specialist (possible carpal tunnel diagnosis) referred me to get an EMG since I am still experiencing numbness & tingling in hands. That will be done this month. I noticed when I'm stressed/anxiety is when my face/head gets a numbing tingling feeling. I have been doing rigorous stretching to help ease stress on the nerves. I was leery of getting vaccinated for I have an overactive immune system. Ani Inflammatory meds were prescribed and had no affect to ease the pain. So, been eating IB's like its going out of style just to get the edge off. I think these vaccines have an strong impact on our nerve system. Just wish doctors would stop immediately denying the vaccine being the cause. Especially when one took photos of the extra side effects. Now, I'm borderline of losing my job due to this long battle.

@vinniefly Thank you. I hope time will bring healing. 🙏 we get real answers from the medical team and the truth will unfold. I am trying to eliminate my sugar intake and eat Anti-inflammatory foods- Mediterranean diet (fruits/vegetables and white meat) or keto, eliminating sugar all together. I take Two B-12 and vitamin C. Please check out website, others are going similar symptoms as well.

I know what you mean. I’m sorry you are going through this. The night I received the M- in Jan 22
numbness and tingling started that night. It came and went and recently   moved to my face. It’s very concerning, took a MRI and spinal tap and will be seeing a neurologist next week to go over final results. 

This website verifies we are not alone and it’s not all in our heads.  Many with similar symptoms.
Take care

@r30953 Thank you for sharing! Your post sounds very familiar to my story. I have the same symptoms from Jan 2022, after receiving the M-vax. Tingling and numbness is getting worse and my body feels like it’s on fire, but yesterday felt like my bones were freezing from the inside out. Recently had a MRI and spinal tap done and will be meeting with the neurologist next week to go over final results. I was very healthy before this. I’m now trying to change my diet also and eliminate sugar and processed foods. I think anti inflammatory foods could help (fingers crossed 🤞).

Please check out this site when you get a chance, it brings clarity to know we’re not alone.

What supplements  did he suggest? Did he diagnose you ? Or sY what he thinks.  And if it will go away. I'm right there with you with  symptoms and all.

@tone He said he didn’t think it would get any worse. His  diagnosis was just Covid related paresthesia. Hopefully will get better - they just don’t know enough. Supplements - Alpha Lipoic acid 600-1200 mg daily - this is for peripheral neuropathy. It’s over the counter.  I just started taking. And a multi vitamin. He said to stay away from B complex because too much B6 is a problem.

@tone I looked at what you posted about your symptoms. They sound quite similar to mine.

@regretvax Just thought I’d chime in about the Keto Diet: my nutritionist suggested I try it in order to improve brain function.  I’ve been on it for five weeks.  It’s quite a strict diet (previously eating Paleo), but it has decreased the severity of my pain.  I primarily suffer from tremors and facial twitching after five months now.  While I used to take some pain meds before, I do not have to now, and overall, the flares are more manageable.  HOWEVER, I had a really long transition into the diet, and I was pretty miserable for weeks  due to the stress of my body’s transition and Keto Flu.  Even under the care of my nutritionist, it was rough, but right now, I’m glad I stuck through it.  Just be careful if you go that route, and good luck!

Be VERY careful with Keto. I had major issues whilst 2 yrs on keto (with intermittent fasting). Cluster migraines with aura (sometimes 15 days a mth) and muscle spasms that almost had me in a&e.. I'm actually wondering if keto caused the parasthesia (lack of electrolytes).. it certainly didnt help.. now 10 mths on normal diet.. and dont get any migraines or spasms (still getting flare ups of parasthesia though) Has enough else been on a restrictive diet before the symptoms occured? Keto can make you very depressed and anxious, carbs are calming for some..

@seatempest Thank you for sharing! I think sugar brings inflammation and pain. I tried keto for a few days and the first days were rough because it brings body aches and flu like symptoms, but after the third day, I haven’t felt myself since I’ve received the vax. I finally had a goodnites rest. Being on a stick diet really helps. Just have to get over that hump to get relief. 2 spoons of coconut oil a day seems to help too. Have a great day! Take care.
