@mbelle - Hello Bella - I have had almost identical symptoms to you (full body tingling, shortness of breath, increased heart rate, all started 2.5-3 was after Pfizer dose # 2…now symptoms for 6 weeks).  Neurologist thinks probably vaccine reaction but must rule out MS and Guillian Barre.  Neurologist has seen a handful of cases already.  Question: did your Neurologist say no boosters for you?  also, did you have any muscle twitching (I did - minor) or muscle tearing?

As mentioned im in the same boat. 2 weeks post my 1st Pfizer i started with everything (numbness, tingles, nueropathy all over, fire ant pain, sore joints, hurt muscles, and now light itchy hands) im 16 days of symptoms. Clean MRI and perfect bloodwork. For about 10 days I've een having morning almond milk shake with blueberries and haskap berries good for antioxidants, a brazil nut, a banana andchlorella, then omega 3, vitamin b complex, anti inflammatory natural, vitamin D, probiotics, fermented ginger, and magnesium. 

Im not eating anything processed, with dairy or sugar, limiting high fat red meat, although i had few bites of steak last night. No bad grains. Gmo corn, enriched flour, crackers, pasta etc. Nothing inflammatory. Ive only had 2-3 glass of red wine in past 2 weeks too. Past 2days my symptoms are subsiding. Weds i felt pretty good even got massage, Thursday flared up a bit and past 2 days 90% well.

@mbelle Are you taking anything for the itching.  I'm almost 5 months out and I still have flare ups.  I take Alegra for the itching which helps.

I got EMG about 2 months after the vaccination and this is because our free healthcare system.  I will get MRI in couple weeks, so about 3.5 months after the vaccination.

Thanks for telling me about your symptoms and I am glad to know that they are finally resolved with time.  It has been more than 3 months now that I have tingling/buzzing/vibration feels.  Other symptoms are completely gone (or 98% gone for some minor symptoms).  So I think I am slowly getting better.  I don’t want a second shot but where I live now enforces so much of getting 2 shots.  They really pressure you or you won’t be able to attend any event or even watch your kids playing sports.

After 3 days of vaccination, I started I have a headache and it lasted for 3 then.  Then I started to get feeling of tireless in my left leg.  I got tired easily just walking up stairs from the basement.  I had pin and needles (came and gone) in various places.  I felt tingling/numbness in my legs (more on the left side) and hands and arms (more on the left side).  About 10 days after the vaccination, I had disequilibrium (to the right) and started to have left eye twitching.  3 month has past and most of my symptoms are gone except buzzing/vibration in my legs and arms.  If i feel stress or have anxiety (never had anxiety before the vaccine), I may feel lightheaded.  So I think I am slowly getting better.  I just had EMG done and my neurologist said my peripheral nerves are working fine.  So now I am wait to have MRI.  I hope it will be okay as well.

Just an update: as my symptoms were gone for a couple of days I decided to get the second shot. I had it last Monday and, except for sore arm, so far so good. I want to wait at least another week as I start having symptoms 11-12 days after my first shot so I am expecting something similar this time.

Finger crossed.

@elisaalb89 

I have exactly same symptoms as you.

My symptoms were in time sequence are :

10th August: Received first dose of PFizer, after 10 minutes felt light headed which went away slowly in 1.5 hours.

13th August : Started feeling cramp in left leg calf muscle. Also, started feeling tingling/twitching/rushing of blood just above the left knee joint.

Next day cramp weakend as I increased the intake of fluids, but the tingling/twitching shifted to left hand.

This tingling can sometimes break my sleep or I felt sharp distraction to it while working.

Then for last 2 days this tingling switched to needles and pins kind of sensation.

I went to Emeregency Department too, there they did some blood tests and X-ray and everything was normal in those.

One mistake I made in the course was after 10 days I started feeling normal and thought of working out and next day I knew I have amplified the gone symptoms.

 My second dose is booked for 4th September, but I am seriously worried if I should take it or not, considering the second dose is stronger than the first one.

Any guidance will be helpful.

PS: I felt releived in knowing through this forum that I am not alone who felt like this, as all the people I know physically or talked to, none of them had any such issues and especially nothing for the 1st dose.

@jpgdubgmail-com Hi Jean. I am taking Claritan for the itching.  It seems more intense in hot weather.

Hi, I wanted to share my story if others have any similarly experience. 6 days after my 2nd dose of pfizer vaccine I started experiencing tingling and numbness in my right arm, this spread to my right leg. Feeling lethargic and generally low energy. I went to accident and emergency, I received CT, MRI and various blood tests; all clear. 

This has continued and spread across all of my limbs and face, it comes and goes and is sometimes a burning sensation, sometimes a weight or a presence sensation. The worst thing by far is the worry, that makes all my symptoms worse. I'm  now 4 weeks since my symptoms started showing. I do feel my symptoms are getting better, and feeling more positive. My gp gave me a low dosage of diazapam which has really helped and I'm lowering my dosage of that ( only a week prescription).

I'm a healthy 39 year old with no underlying health issues. I am generally healthy and haven't been off sick in years! I have 3 small children and this experience has been  the worst of my life. My gp says it might be related to vaccine reaction or it might need to just run its course and we won't pinpoint the cause. I have also been referred to neurology for further investigation. 

Anyone else relate? Thanks. Xx

@jpgdubgmail-com I can only speak from my experience - I was given antihistamines, then cortisone, anti-anxiety meds and anti-epileptic meds, none of which helped me.

@nawpan Hi there! I see that you got an EMG. I'm due to have one September 8th. I'm just curious how it went. I've heard it can be quite painful. And what kind of results come with it? Were they able to tell you right away, or did you hear back after some time? Thanks so much. 🙂

@beeaydee I know you weren't responding to me, but I had EMG testing as well. They did it in two separate appointments, one for my arms one for my legs.i was quite anxious about it, however is far less than what I expected. The first part is the zapping. It didn't really bother me. The second part they stick small pins in 3 parts of your hand and legs and have you move fingers and toes. Again, didn't bother me. I got results as soon doctor was done with legs which was the second appointment. No neuropathy and he wouldn't refer for another specialist as he found nothing concerning. I will say I asked if he thought it could be from the vaccine. He was noncommittal, but the technician standing behind him was shaking her head yes to me. 

Also, the technician who did the first part of the test, the zapping made me feel at ease. When I was concerned that what she was doing wasn't bothering or hurting me I thought there really was something wrong, but she said my thinking was just the opposite. Must be if you have neuropathy or nerve damage you feel the zaps more.

Sorry for being long winded. Hope all goes well for you.
