Hey guys. I was here around page 50, with all the neuropathy symptoms people getting. Can't believe there are 100 pages more now. I had only one Pfizer shot and 14 months after tingling and other horrible symptoms went away but not the nerve pain. If you are in doubt to take 2nd 3rd or 4th dose. DON'T DO IT. I am not anti vaxxer. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I am a regular human who got fucked by this vaccine. It gets better slowly I think, but sometimes I wonder if the nerve pain will ever go away. Wishing you recovery. I've done multiple tests, nerve studies, scans etc. I don't have the answers but one thing I know for sure, if you had this kind of reaction don't get another dose. I know 100% my symptoms caused by the vaccine as it started straight away. Don't doubt it.

@jessm Hi Jess. Thanks for sharing this and your updates. I am having similar effects after the Novavax shot (tingling and numbness to my right arm and leg, dizziness, and head just feeling weird) and my doctor recommended MRIs of my brain and cervical spine. I’m convinced it’s not anything serious (never had any issues before) and is from the shot. Any recommendations for just staying calm through this?

@cantfindausername776 Hi! Sorry to know about your health issue. I do not know if you still have these symptoms, I certainly hope not! But if you do, try this. Take a good calcium supplement (calcium carbonate), maybe 250 mg. This should stop your muscle twitches in less than an hour. I know you are only 20 and may not be calcium deficient but muscles also need calcium for contraction. So I would suggest give a try. Second, for tingling in hands and feet, start taking a good high dose vitamin B-complex (suggested, Co-enzyme B-complex) and a good high dose of Vitamin B12 (quick dissolve methylcobalmin B12 1000 micrograms at least, if not comfortable try half and increase slowly, if you feel better with half continue doing so). Do these for a week or two to see if it helps! Excess B-vitamins will come out of urine (yellow). I mention these specific things because I had the same problem of muscle twitches in my back and tingling in my hands and feet and unfortunately, no docs could help. tried many supplements but didnt help, until I hit on the calcium and B-complexes. I took 1500 mg of chewable calcium (equivalent to 600 mg Calcium) one hour after lunch, quick dissolve 5000 micrograms of B12 (as soon as I wake in the morning), and 1-2 B-complex each day for a month (with lunch and dinner); and continue to take calcium (same dose). I still take the B12 and B-complex when I feel the tingling effects. B12 and other B vitamins help in nerve repairs. Additionally, if you feel comfortable doing it and which I also did is I took 1/4th teaspoon of baking soda (not baking powder) in a glass of water on empty stomach, once in the morning 45-60 mins before breakfast and once same way before dinner. You may not believe that the tingling effects use to stop within minutes. I also did this for more than a month and then stopped once the tingling of hands and feet had stopped. If you are not comfortable of ingesting baking soda (many would) then try dissolving 1/4th teaspoon of baking soda in one tablespoon (15 mL) of water. You will notice most of the salt would have dissolved, apply this liquid (supposedly saturated baking soda solution) on the hands and feet and if they give you temporary relief of the tinglings for sometime, then it will be good that you give this also a try, at least 1/4th teaspoon once a day. I had done this similar experiment on myself. These are certainly not medical advice. I wish you good health. God bless!

@carpll14 Hi, sorry to hear you are experiencing this. My best advice to stay calm is dont research possible illnesses you may have. For me, this created alot of anxiety. Also, expect flare ups. Sometimes things get better and then come back which can be disheartening but they will stop again. Alot of people have recovered, unfortunately some take longer than others. Work out what supplements help you. NAC has been great for alot of us along with a few other vitamins. I pray you recover quickly. Feel free to message me 🙂

One day after my second dose of Astrazeneca vaccine, 4 weeks ago (13 october 2021) , tingling started in my feet and the hands and face and tongue. i did MRI from brain and cervical MRI, i did EEG test, every thing was normal. my blood test also normal. i am 31 years old male and healthy without any disease.  The neurology doctor gave me gabapentin 100 mg which did not help much. i had 4 shots of Dexamethasone, which is steroid. i was better for few days but now i am not feeling normal. i think my feet and hands and arms muscles are weak and i dont now what to do...

 

Hello everyone,

It is exactly one f...ing year since I got my second and last Covid Vaccine. I am better (maybe 80%). I think I am better mostly because I am in a better psychological state of mind. Stress and anxiety make this worse. In the beginning I thought in time this can get worse and worse but it got little by little better or for some time it stayed the same. This is what many of the members in this forum tell. In the previous year I tried many methods... 3 MRIs, many tests... so much supplements and pills...  (You can read my previous posts). Many of my symptoms are gone and since maybe 6 months, I have a weird on and off combination of weakness + numbness in my right leg to be exact on my right thigh and sometimes on the right side of my tongue. I have this feeling rarely on my right hand too. It is hard to describe this feeling but the magnitude of this feeling is may be 20-25 % in comparison to normal state of body... Some days I am ok but surely when I have stress it will get worse... 

I don’t think, doctors know about this and our only option and cure is TIME. Supplements and pills may decrease the symptoms but they are not the cure for this problem.

I will post an update may be in 6 month or 1 year. I hope, by that time I am completely and 100% OK. The same health I had before the Vaccine.

Wish you all the best and speedy recovery.

Mohammad

Hi Mohammad - thank you for posting your candid update at the 1 year mark, it is much appreciated.  I also posted my 1 year update and will do the same as you at the 1.5 year mark. I fully agree that time is really the only thing that has helped. And I fully agree that stress makes things worse.  I have also had some big flare ups …most recently when my son got sick many of my symptoms came back. I wish the best of luck to all of us

Can anyone help. It's been 15 months since my second pfizer and after a period of recovery, all the tingling in my legs has come back. I feel so sad and scared again.

Don't be scared Volam76, it's normal and seems be quite common. I have a period of recovery (maybe 20-30 days, best one 2 mths!) then it comes back and it's very soul destroying. It will go away again.. you just need to accept the flare ups and look forward to the recovery periods which ALWAYS reoccur.. After my 2 month recovery period I was pretty upset when it came back as I was sure I'd finally got rid of it!

In my case (not sure about others?) my hands and feet are FREEZING cold so blood isn't circulating to them correctly, I'm now going to try some iron supplements to improve the circulation and hopefully reduce or stop the buzzes..

@montydes thank you for replying. I am so desperately sad its come back after such a good summer, fairly symptom free. My main complaint is tingling in my legs, groin and tummy/lower back. Its horrible. It all started 4 days after my second vaccine. Like all of us, i wish to god i have never had the vaccine. I hope it will go away again. I feel close to breaking down right now. I'm so sick of suffering

Hi Everyone - I’m at 15 months since it all started and currently in a flare up. Curious if anyone has had their tingling replaced by aching?  All my hand/foot/leg tingling is currently replaced by aching in those exact areas. And now starting new aching in abdomen and back where I never had tingling.

Hi Volam - I know, it’s terribly upsetting when the symptoms come back. What we have is very cyclical - better for a while and then out of the blue everything flares up again.  But do trust that they will disappear or nearly disappear again.  So many of have posted about these cycles of near normal and then flares. Hopefully the time between flare ups will lengthen

@j thanks so much for writing.  Your reassurance makes me feel less frightened. I hate this vaccine. I hate it so much.
