You don't want to know the number of things that can go wrong with any event of a needle going into a body part. Very frequent is hitting a nerve, which is what you felt going down to your wrist. Usually it fades away but occasionally it creates permanent damage. Glad you're seeing the doctor.I hope you heard back about this, Swifty?
I'm a bit concerned about my 2nd shot of Pfizer. I'm hearing some reports of problems being caused if either 1st or 2nd shot (of either mRNA vaccine) is inadvertently injected into a vein instead of the muscle. Heart inflammation in mice has been reported in a recent study (which I can't find right now). Heart inflammation, fatigue, joint pain and menstrual issues in women have been reported in humans.
Neither of my shots were aspirated (plunger of syringe pulled back to check for blood) to ensure intramuscular injection, they just poked and pushed.
Directly after my second shot on July 11, I felt a coldness flow down my arm, and had a severe reaction 24 hrs after. (40 C fever, aches, chills, sore arm, so bad had trouble putting on my shirt, painfully swollen lymph in my armpit for days). After that, I felt fine. Maybe a bit tired.
Sept 6, feeling good. Camping (solo) for the long weekend. No problems. Sept 10, start having an ache in my knee. By Sept 12 I could hardly walk due to joint pain in my knee and hip. I didn't get a test at that time, because I didn't feel sick otherwise, and do have bad knees, so thought I just tweaked it somehow.
However, there is no swelling or pain to the touch like you would expect if I had tweaked it enough to be so long lasting and painfull. I am still dealing with almost constant discomfort in my leg. I am now also constantly fatigued. On days when I have energy and do stuff, I pay for the next three days with being so tired and sore I can't do anything. I am having some of the other symptoms too. The pain in my leg is less now, after some massages, but still lingers and can be easily triggered by even light activity, flaring up into agony.
I don't know what's going on. For all I know, I could've caught it on the long weekend (had brief, outdoor, distanced chats with a few people at the campground) and now have long covid. The symptoms are similar to the side effects. Being already double vaccinated well before that trip should make this less likely.
But it is concerning to read these reports on a very new vaccine, which, to be honest, I had reservations about taking because it hasn't been studied over the long term.
And of course, our health care system is on the brink of collapse here, so it's really hard to see my Dr. Finally got an appointment for next week. Whatever it is, I hope my Dr. will take it seriously and look into it.
And I really hope it isn't permanent, because I feel like crap!!
