@account6 I have had numbness and tingling in hands and feet mostly left side but also lip tongue and face..this has been for almost 3 months and started 2 weeks after my 1st astra zeneca..gp said no correlation and told me to have no alcohol and take vitamin b for 3 weeks which I did but no improvement..went to neurologist who basically said I appeared to not have any neurological disease..went back to gp as symptoms are constant and pronounced and she said it was my anxiety. Reading these comments has given me some hope as I have never felt anything like this I told the gp I am anxious and want to know the cause and is it going to get even worse..if they knew these side effects from the vaccine existed then patients experiencing this could at least have a better understanding rather than being in the dark without answers.

Thank goodness my wife who got her vaccination today mentioned my symptoms of tingling and numbness in my hands and feet which have been going for almost 3 months since 1st jab which the GP said had no correlation. They told her that these symptoms can occur from the vaccine. I went to neurologist who assessed me as having no neurological disease with pin prick and reflexes test. My symptoms have been constant. Left arm and leg falling asleep if I’m sitting down. Constant tingling also my face, lips and tongue. It’s been so hard as I have read many others have suffered this as well. When I appealed to the GP saying I wanted to know the cause, whether it would get even worse or even if it could be life threatening, her answer was to refer me to a psychiatrist. Now having read the accounts of others I realise now that these strong effects have been caused by the vaccine.

I had my first shot 3 weeks ago and noticed weak sensations in that arm about a week later. I still have it and an fue for my next shot today. I can use my arm fine but it feels weird...a bit tingly and shake. It is causing me a lot of anxiety. I got the pzfyser brand. Is this temporary??? Will it get worse with the second shot??

@allan I got my first vacation May 20 and 1/2 half after I started with the tingling feeling in arms and legs. Sept 13th still experiencing some tingling in mostly my left arm ( the arm i received my vaccine).  Doctor cannot give guarantees i will not get worse with second shot.  And will not write me a medical exemption because I didn't go into anaphylactic shock.  Has anyone gotten worst after 2nd shot?

Hi All. I just wanted to chime in and note that there is another forum on the VEDA site called "COVID-19 VACCINE SIDE EFFECTS" where many more people are sharing their stories. It might be most beneficial and informative if everyone consolidates the conversation there. If you click on my screen name (MsMar) and then click to view my "Activity" you can see the links to my prior posts, which I think some of you might find helpful. My oldest post outlines my post-vaccine experience--which is similar to what some of you are experiencing--in the most detail.

I also asked him about the calf muscle twitching saying that was scaring me the most and pins and needles he said it is definitely the back that it would interfere with the calf .

Hey guys, my symptoms have been getting better, maybe they’ll come back but I wanted to share with you because it might help you too.

I have tingling/formication on my hand/forearm (right and left) and on my left leg. What I have been doing is a TENS machine (they’re not super cheap but they are also not that expensive), a few days ago I was literally using it 8x a day (you can use it as many times as you want) and I have started Gabapentin 400mg at night.

Hope you all keep improving and that we are all back to what we used to be in no time 🙏🏼

31F, generally healthy, got my first dose of Pfizer exactly 4 weeks ago. Within 1 hour my entire body was warm and tingling and within 2 hours extreme pins and needles sensations localized in my hands and feet. Within 3 days the parasthesia became so intense and painful that I couldn’t sleep, barely walk, or take care of my one year old. It also spread from my hands and feet to include my limbs and I can barely use my ring or pinky finger on my right hand (it’s just sort of numb and gets weak really fast). Went to the hospital and was seen by a few doctors, including neurologist who has accepted me as a patient. All physical exams and blood work was normal, but still waiting for an mri. He said he’s seen other people with this issue as a result of the vaccine but all tests usually come back normal and he can only manage symptoms with gabapentin or pregamblin and hope it gets better since they have no data or idea what is going on. He said remaining hydrated and getting on top of stress is really important to help prevent flare ups, though. 

Consulted with my naturopath who recommended the following to curb inflammation and help healthy function of cells:

Turmeric/Curcumin, PEA, Lipoic Acid, NAC, B12, BComplex, A LOT of Omega 3, MSM, Glucosamine, Magnesium, Reservatrol, Ubiquinol, Viramin D, doing a liver cleanse, and following an anti inflammatory diet (no gluten, dairy, sugar, yeast, red meat - but already did this before anyhow). I’ve been doing everything for 3 weeks aside from the liver cleanse as of yet.

Thankfully, the extreme pins and needles and shooting sharp pains are down to about 5/10 (opposed to 10/10 with onset), and the vertigo is only a 2/10 now, but for the past 2 weeks I have extreme skin burning all over my body which keeps me up all night since it literally feels like the worst sunburn of my life.

I noticed things flare up with the following:

- stress or anxiety (I’m constantly anxious because of this but definitely gets worse if arguing or conflict with loved ones)

- drinking alcohol

- extreme temperature fluctuations 

- exercising - I used to 5x per week and I have only been able to twice in the past month and then paid for it for 2 days after - also super weak now for being someone who was so physically active 

I’m super depressed and cry every day feeling like a terrible mom that can’t keep up but trying to focus on the fact some symptoms have gradually been improving. It took me 10 months to have my cut nerves from my csection heal (complete loss of sensation and a weird pain at the same time- BUT they did!), so I’m optimistic whatever nerve irritation this is will get better eventually. Only thing that is stressing me out is that the doctors I’ve seen won’t give me recommendations re. my second dose (likely liability issues) which I’m supposed to have this week, but they just instated the vaccine passport here to do a lot of things. They also won’t write me an exception because there is nothing on tests saying I have any type of condition. If someone has experience with the reaction from the first dose and then still choosing to get the second one, please let me know because I really don’t know what to do.

@eileenwh Yes! I just wanted to say I had a few better days (all symptoms were there, but less so--to the point that I thought, "hey, maybe I'm turning a bit of a corner") but then I got hit with a big flare up and feel like I'm at square one. Very frustrating. I remember a few pages back someone said that around 5 or 6 months (I forget which) they do feel much better, more like their old self/baseline, but that their healing was not linear. So maybe we just need to anticipate this sort of back and forth of symptoms. But disheartening for sure!

@alywoop Our situations are very similar, including the feeling of the worst sunburn ever (at its best). Thanks for sharing what's working for you. I've found the same triggers irritate my symptoms, including the exercise. I find that one very frustrating because I'm already feeling quite depressed because of all of this, and now I've went from previously active to completely sedentary. Working out causes a multi-day flare up for me too, even just yoga. It will be 8 weeks for me on Friday, and what I've also found is that I seem to get big flare ups around my period. I think it's beginning to happen again and it's so painful. Especially because some of the sensations that were fading/lessening have all ramped up or returned. I've been using a lot of those supplements as well--not sure if they're helping (yet), but I keep trying just in case they are doing something, you know? The burning nerve pain is the worst, but also the muscle/joint weakness and little electric shocks are so irritating, too. I'm so ready for life to return to normal... as I'm sure we all are. 🙁 But like you've said, I'm trying to remain optimistic and positive that this will all pass in time. Hard to remain positive on the worst days, but I've seen quite a few people say they have gotten back to normal (typically 3-6 months) so I'm hoping for the best.

@msmar I went back and read your previous posts and you're giving me a lot of hope. Your symptoms are very similar to mine and i hope that i will continue to improve as you have. My new doctor  also thinks that it could well be a reaction to the vaccine and believes it will pass. He was very reassuring that he's certain it's not MS but has referred me to a neurologist for further investigation. Thank you for your encouraging posts. They help me believe there is light at the end of the tunnel.
