1st and 2nd Pfizer Shot, Hollywood, FL, USA

Symptoms: Fever Headache Joint Pain
Hollywood, FL, USA

April 19, 2021 9:13 PM

“1st shot went relatively well. Had only minor tightness of throat for few minutes, felt light headed, and then felt feverish for a few days. Had join pain for a few days, but it got better later. Felt much better overall in a few days, better than before the shot. The second shot went well also, no... See Moretightness in the throat, no light headed, only soreness of arm for about two days. However, after one week, getting headaches/ mild migranes that don't go away and I don't really suffer from these. Had no major changes in routine or sleep habit to attribute to it. Headaches got worse after one week being vaccinated. Also, had a few episodes of weird symptoms I had never felt before- like if the heart skipped a beat... If it will continue, I will address this with my doctor. At this point, sharing, so that if anyone else has similar symptoms, we can bring it to the attention it needs. Overall, feel better than before getting the shot. I suspect I might have had long haul symptoms from possible Covid in March 2020- no tests were available to me to confirm the positivity then, but had many weird illnesses that are better now. The irregular heart beat/shortness of breath on occasion (only one to two seconds) concerns me a little. At this point, still happy I got the shot as I'm in the high risk category from complications and could not risk not getting vaccinated. See Less

“The first shot of Moderna was fine. I had a sore arm the next day and slight fatigue. Two weeks later for the follow up, the nurse hurt me with the shot and I felt discomfort down to my fingertips. No big deal. The next day normal flu like symptoms, took some naps during the day and some Tylenol. S... See Moretayed hydrated before and after both shots. The second day I could not get out of bed, I did get out and sat in a warm bathtub 5 times to help with nausea and light headedness. My blood pressure went up 145/90. I called my cardiologist and family doctor. They both told me this was normal for some folks. After the second day I started to feel better, very slowly. It was on the eleventh day that i felt almost normal. I’m at the thirteenth day and I’m feeling sick all over again. I do little bit and have to lay down.

“I received the J&J vaccine on 4/10/21 thru Walgreens. The injection itself was a stinging pressure for about 3sec. As I left the room & walked away, about 5min later I felt a mild light headedness for literally only about 5sec. & then it went away. I felt fine the rest of the day & didn't even get t... See Morehe sore arm thereafter. The only thing I can say is I had a bit of a headache that night that lasted less than 2hrs. I didn't take any pain reliever for it. I noticed ringing of my right ear 5days later that would come & go & lasted most of the day but went away. I haven't had COVID19. I also haven't had a vaccine in many yrs nor a flu shot in over 15yrs so I was a bit nervous. I am in my 40s & it's been almost a week later & so far, so good. Not sure if any or all of what I felt was a result of the vaccine, but wanted to share MY experience. Best Wishes See Less
