@twitch I am much better than I was a few months ago. I am nervous to even say it, because I don’t want to jinx myself, but I feel I am at 95% now. My symptoms came on gradually, starting a few days after the jab and were the worst at about the 2 month mark. Then they started to back off around the 3 month mark. I am now going several days without any pins and needles. My right toes are still slightly weird feeling, but I can handle that. 

I take several supplements and not sure if that is helping or just coincidence. Please do your own research on these before taking them, but I take Vitamin D (I have taken this for years), NAC, Vac-Chord, Magnesium, Quercetin, and Zinc. I do not take all of these in a day, and take a lot of half doses by cutting pills in half, or opening the capsules and dumping some out  I also rotate certain ones every other day. I have always been sensitive to medication, so I am cautious about not over doing it. I feel since I added the zinc, I have had the most improvement. Please do your own research on any supplements before you take them.  

I am able to workout to about 66% of what I had prior to the jab. Best wishes for a quick and full recovery!

Hello everyone! I have been thinking about the connection between those of us with these issues and have a few questions based on my own experience. 

 1.  Did any of you experience very significant pain in the arm where you got your jab, like really bad arm pain? The evening that I had my jab, my arm hurt so bad that I could barely move it. I have a high pain tolerance and was shocked at the pain as I have never experienced pain like that from any shot. It was not normal by any means and the next morning I woke up and was surprised that the pain was gone besides a little right where I was jabbed. 

2. Certain blood types are more susceptible to certain health issues. I am AB positive. Anyone else want to share theirs? 

3.  Someone mentioned to me that they read that people who had the flu shot have had more reactions to the Covid jab. I did have the flu shot last fall? Anyone else? 

just questions of curiosity to see if there is a link to be noticed at all. Thanks!

Hey guys, it's been 4 weeks now since my first pfizer jab. Symptoms are improving but super slowely. One day it's bad another day I am 80% symptom free for few hours then it comes back. It has no freaking pattern, just mind of its own. Now I have more ongoing muscle pain, like when I have a flu and little pins and needles that are scattered throughout my major arm and legs muscles. Sometimes, in the evening I feel like I am burning under my skin but I have no fever when I check. Then wake up in the morning ok. I researched Small fibre nerve neuropathy (can only be tested via skin biopsy) looks like it's possible to get it from the vax and there were instances people got it from covid vax. However, not all neuropathic symptoms are SFN...I wouldn't automatically assume that!!! My neurologist said it's a nerve inflammation from the vaccine and hopefully will heal with time... Not sure if I want to keep looking and pushing for biopsy to be done. I de delayed my second dose to have a bigger time gap and see what happens. Unfortunately, I tend to believe that second dose will make things worse. It's a hard choice to make, absolute sh*&$t between not being 90% protected or having those crazy symptoms.

@dgingoglia I have taken Vitamin D for years and bumped up to 5000 IU every other day since March 2020. On the other days I take 1000 IU. I haven’t had it checked since before March 2020, but I have to think it is healthy with the amounts I take. I go to have blood work done this week and will have it checked just to make sure.

@twitch I had/have muscle twitches and racing heartbeat.  The first month was definitely the worst.  Felt like electric pulses going through my body.  I did have the odd tremor (mainly in my neck) and I have noticed several times where one ear will almost "go deaf" for about a minute...and then it corrects itself.  This hearing issue has only happened a handful of times, and not in a while now.  I am 6 months after my first shot of Moderna.  When I sit still I can still feel small muscle twitches in my legs mainly, but sometimes in my back & upper arms.   Between being  used to them now and they're less frequent is why I say I'm improving.  But the first few weeks I really thought I was having a major issue.  The anxiety that caused probably did not help anything.  I consider myself to be very healthy overall so this issue was very concerning.    I hope you start to see some improvements soon!

@riahmt I also consider myself very sensitive to medications.  I wonder if that is a commonality between all of us...?  I try to avoid all medicine and when I do take something it's a half dose or child's dose.  I also take most of the same supplements as you, and rotate them (so not all every day).  I also can (rarely) get complicated migraines.  Just putting that out there becuase those are also neurological and I don't know if there's any connection.

@jessclaire Interesting and thank you for sharing! I rarely get headaches and have never had migraines, but maybe there is a connection with the sensitivity to meds? My mother is sensitive as well and her heart went crazy the day she had her jab. She broke out into a sweat and felt dizzy also. She was advised not to get another jab. 

There has to be some link to all of us. I will only take 1 Tylenol or ibuprofen since that is all I ever need. The few times I have been given narcotic pain meds, I have vomited, so always decline them, example after the birth of my children. I take children’s allergy meds, etc. as those doses do the trick. Thanks again for sharing!

@riahmt same with me. After child birth I asked for children’s Tylenol and they had to approve that with the doctor since he prescribed a narcotic!  I’m very sensitive with medication, never needing much. Maybe the vaccine dose was too much for us.

Are you typically sensitive to meds? Example, do you need less of the typical dose of Tylenol or ibuprofen? Allergy meds? Seems some of us are and wonder if that is the common link to this issue?

Update on my Symptoms after 3 months

Numb feeling in left leg is gone,  calf twitching is almost gone very light twitching and not very often . Pain in foot not as bad still have pins and needles but they are faint. New Symptoms for me palm of hands burning pain pins,and needles in hands and tingling tongue.  I'm just trying my best to ignore it I feel it will all eventually wear off I think it's some sort of inflammation,  my left leg was so bad at one time it didn't feel like my leg but there is a big improvement.  I took anti inflammatory tablets for a week but I got a side effect from them my mouth was in bits after them. But I am very sensitive to meds not a lot I can take only paracetamol seems to agree with me. I even said before I took the vaccine it might effect me I had a feeling I always have bad reactions to meds
