Received vaccine at 1730, then just before midnight my heart began to pound hard and very fast, and it made me feel short of breath or as though I had to cough. After about a minute I thought it might be SVT so I did a valsalva maneuver and it stopped. I was resting in bed, no alcohol or caffeine, and this has never happened to me before. Since then, I have felt at least one heart palpitation per day, sometimes many more. The last few days I have felt extremely fatigued and have had an odd sensation in my chest. On 1/7 I developed a dry cough, and was swabbed for Covid because I felt so bad. It was negative. This made me wonder if the odd sensation in my chest was related to my heart and not my lungs. I am due for my second vaccine today, and am unsure if I should get it.

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Approximately 24 hours after injection I felt dyspnea with minimal exertion and at rest while wearing my hospital mask, which I attributed to the cheap quality of the mask. Breathlessness was relieved after I took it off. I shoveled snow with no problem over the weekend, and was off work. Three days later, on 1/3 around 7 pm, I experience the same feeling while wearing the same type of mask, and it was relieve when I took it off. The following day, 1/4 around 2pm, while wearing a different disposable mask in the grocery store, felt extremely overheated and realized I was having difficulty breathing with minimal exertion. This time the feeling did not pass when I left the store/removed my mask, and residual effects of not being able to easily take a deep breath stayed with me the entire day. The feeling was gone in the morning, but did eventually re-occur the next day (tightness in my lungs not allowing for easy deep breaths) on 1/5 near the end of a shift where I had been wearing yet a different type of disposable mask. The symptoms starting around 4:30 pm and lasted throughout the rest of the evening. At this point I notified employee heath and scheduled a covid test. The next two days, on 1/6 and 1/7, the same type of dyspnea persisted throughout the day; while at rest, not relieved, and with no other symptoms (no cough, fever, etc.) Ibuprofen appears to relieve the discomfort, and I have returned to work, however the symptoms are still present if I am not taking Ibuprofen. Possibly some kind of pleurisy. My lung sounds are clear.

At approximately 0725 in addition to the body aches and restlessness, I began to get severe nausea, weakness, light-headedness, headache, profuse sweating, and severe chest pain and shortness of breath.

My temp was over 100. Dr appt - went to it late afternoon he wanted me test for COVID. Took vitals - mostly normal - temp.; checked OXYGEN - normal. COVID test - was positive. Temperature went to 101 that night - couldn't breathe good - couldn't stop shaking; I was aching and I was in pain; I couldn't feel warm enough. Tried to sleep and drink fluids. Still didn't have test results from COVID test on Thursday - temp was up to 102 now. The doctor said they couldn't do anything until they had results back of test.

I managed to get to the bathroom - but having trouble breathing and I almost threw up - heard ringing in my ears and room was spinning. There is a lot of things after that I don't remember - when they moved me to ambulance to hospital bed I realized I had an IV in me. They stabilized me. They let me go home.

She was really itching; couldn't really taste, things didn't really taste right to her; immediate soreness in arm; she has pain that extends up into her neck; Nausea; hasn't had much of an appetite; sweating; left hand swelling; hives on forearm; gastrointestinal issues; Fever; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). This consumer reported similar events for two patients. This is the first of two reports. A 40-year-old female patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, lot number: EL8982), intramuscular at left arm on 21Jan2021 15:38 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included Tachycardia (started about 4 years ago), Hypertension (started about 4 years ago) and Essential tremor from 2020 (she has been having symptoms for a while; finally, during the summer of 2020, she was diagnosed through a neurologist) and anxiety, all ongoing; pain, back problems and sleep disorder.Concomitant medications included ongoing Tizanidine as muscle relaxant for back problems, ongoing Metoprolol tartrate for hypertension and tachycardia, Primidone for Essential tremor and ongoing Clonazepam for essential tremors, to help her sleep, and also for anxiety. No prior vaccinations (within 4 weeks). The patient got the first COVID vaccine dose. Afterwards, she went to school and it "was downhill from there". 5 days of persistent symptoms including sweating, muscle pain, joint pain and left hand swelling. It was further reported that she had to wait 15 minutes and then she drove home which is about a 35-minute drive. So about 45 mins after receiving the vaccine, she noticed her tongue, it was more on the right side of her tongue, she can't explain the sensation. She couldn't really taste. Things didn't taste right to her. This lasted 24 hours. She woke up the next day, 22Jan2021, feeling not quite right. She took some Tylenol that morning and went on into school. She took some ibuprofen in the middle of day, it wasn't a big deal. She has a history of tachycardia, but her pulse kept reading normal. She had a drink she was drinking from lunch and she ended up having the remainder of it the last few hours of that day. At about the end of her workday, around 15:30 she was finishing the Cdrink off and she said to herself "oh that taste like a regular drink again". This tongue sensation/lack of taste resolved. At that point, she got really excited because she thought this was all that she would experience with the vaccine. She was grateful she had the chance to have the vaccine. She mentions her arm was very sore right off the bat. She experienced immediate soreness in her arm right after receiving the COVID-19. She thought when they were injecting her, it hit her bone. In fact, she joked about this with the person administering the vaccine. The person at the facility told her to rub it, it actually helps with that. This kind of soreness didn't seem like a major problem. She was still experiencing this soreness. If she is sitting on the couch sideways, with her side of her arm against the couch, she has pain that extends up into her neck. It was pretty painful. Friday, 22Jan2021 (24 hours later after receiving the vaccine), by the time she got home from work, she was really sore. She had some real muscle pain around her hips and upper thighs, both of them. The soreness extended across. It was like she had inflammation that started flaring up. She felt pretty sore that evening. It wasn't like a normal muscle soreness. She went to bed because she was pretty tired. The next morning (Saturday, 23 Jan 2021), she couldn't get off the couch. She had such bad muscle and joint pain. She slept off and on, the pain was pretty bad. Her whole body had so much stiffness and inflammation. Every muscle and every joint just hurt. She confirmed that she hasn't been able to regulate her body temperature. This has been going on since Saturday evening (23Jan2021). She stated that this wasn't normal for her. She does take medications to lower heart rate but she hadn't taken it. She was talking to her best friend about how she had been sore and slept all evening. She checked her pulse and it had dropped down to 40. Her O2 level was at 92. She didn't think it was that big of a deal. Her best friend was kind of freaking out about it. She had such pain and stiffness in her chest that extended across her shoulders, it made it difficult to breathe. She was laboring to breathe. She checked her pulse thinking maybe she was feeling anxious about it and her HR was up, but it wasn't. She states happened so bad yesterday, yesterday was worse than before. She got up on Sunday morning, 24Jan2021, and took a hot shower. When the water from the shower head hit her chest, clarified as her upper chest muscles just below her collar bone, the pressure of the water hitting her was painful. However, she was able to get up, she was moving around. Still the whole time. she had this fever-ish feeling. Her kids were telling her that they were sweating because she had the house at 76 degrees. Monday morning, 25Jan2021, she woke up and she was itchy around her left forearm. She was really itching on Friday night, but she didn't think anything about it. When she took a hot shower yesterday (25Jan2021), a red rash came up on her chest and it looked like she had hives on her forearm. She didn't know if the hot water flared that up, but she doesn't have any allergies. She also had gastrointestinal issues. She has had some nausea that has lasted the entire time since she received the vaccine. She clarifies the nausea has came and gone. She hasn't had much of an appetite. They thought she had a fever yesterday at school. It was 99. something but she had already taken Tylenol a couple hours before and she was sweating so much. She states she has also had diarrhea the last few days, clarified as the last 2 days (24Jan2021). She has already spoken to someone to report her symptoms but wasn't sure about and had question about getting the second vaccine dose. She reported having gone to Urgent care where she was told she had Post covid vaccine syndrome and that she shouldn't have a problem with the second dose. She explained she went to the urgent care yesterday, 25Jan2021. She called her doctor that morning and was told to continue to treat her symptoms and take ibuprofen and Tylenol but if she got worse, to go to urgent care. So, she went to the urgent care (Product information for the Tylenol and Ibuprofen she has been taking (Ibuprofen: UPC/NDC: not provided when probed. Lot: P142385 Expiry date: Apr2023 and Tylenol: UPC/NDC: not provided when probed. Lot: P121664 Expiry date: Sep2023). The nurse just explained (Name Withheld) was having the same exact symptoms as the patient, except it was (Name Withheld) second dose. Her symptoms were identical to the patient. The patient wasn't initially sure if it was from the vaccine or if it was her anxiety. The patient didn't feel anxious and her heart rate wasn't up. The patient told she didn't think anxiety caused her to feel like she had a fever. The school nurse looked it up and found out more symptoms kind of wax and wane. Her symptoms got much worse. On 25Jan2021, Test: Rapid COVID-19 test Result: Negative. The event immediate soreness in arm was not recovered; event couldn't really taste, things didn't really taste right to her recovered on 22Jan2021 and nausea recovered in Jan2021; and unknown outcome for the other events.; Sender's Comments: Linked Report(s) : US-PFIZER INC-2021101606 same reporter/drug, similar events, different patient

Immediately after given vaccine - feeling of lump in throat. Unable to swallow, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat, flush feeling, intense shaking (especially in legs), pain in chest, lightheadedness, dizziness (ruled anxiety) and was monitored for 40 minutes. Was given orange juice and water and allowed to remove mask to catch breath. Almost everyday since this event, the same event keeps repeating it self (almost daily for 3 weeks). I am unable to control these episodes. Emergency department (ED) has been called and I have gone to see my nurse practitioner. Been trying to make an appointment with my doctor for this week. I have lost 5 pounds (down to 105 lbs. so I can't afford to loose more weight) since this first happened and I have also lost my appetite and unable to function normally.

A 40-year-old female patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot number: EL8982), via an unspecified route of administration on Left arm on 21Jan2021 at single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history was not reported. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. It was reported that she was sick in October, she was exposed to COVID, but tested negative, she got sick. She got the vaccine on 21Jan2021, she started having about 4 hours after, chills and body aches, which is normal, then her heart started pounding out of chest, her chest got tight and she had a hard time of breathing. It lasted a couple minutes, the pounding of her heart, but it slowed down, it was fast but not as bad, and she took some Benadryl and after a half hour things settled down, her breathing went back to normal. She contacted her doctor who said to let him know if it happened again, and the next day (22Jan2021) she was kind of out of it, lightheaded, foggy, kind of disconnected, almost like a hangover feeling, just yucky and ran down, Saturday she was feeling a little better, then had 2 more episodes of heart pounding and continued shortness of breath. She ended up in the ER with tachycardia on23Jan2021. She is still having problems. In ER, they found out she was anemic on 23Jan2021.On 23Jan2021 they did bloodwork that day, she had an X-ray and EKG. EKG showed fast rate, normal rhythm, appeared to be no damage to heart. Her blood pressure was high and X-ray of lungs was clear, she had another X-ray this morning, since she developed a cough on 30Jan2021, a barky cough, is coughing up phlegm, Cough started on Saturday, this past Saturday, and is ongoing and worsening, it turned into a cough with a whistle into a barky cough, they are thinking it is connected to asthma response. She is supposed to have pulmonary function tests on the 19th and on the 15th, and endoscope and colonoscope due to anemia to ensure no bleed anywhere. They did another X-ray (on 04Feb2021) this morning and it was clear. They only thing they found is she is anemic, and her doctor is wondering if it is underlying asthma or long haul COVID or a combination of anemia and the shot kicked up stuff. It was reported that she had some asthma like symptoms, which were fully resolving, but kicked back up again since the shot. The events were considered as non-serious. The outcome of the event was chills and body aches was recovered, outcome of the event cough was not recovered and outcome of other events was unknown.

Within a couple minutes of getting the shot, I could feel that my body was reacting. I started itching around my shoulder and chest area on the same side the shot was administered. Then my scalp and face stated itching. I decided to take two children's benadryl chewables (25 mg total) that I had in my purse. I notified the person watching us and he sent a supervisor to talk to me. I stayed about 45 minutes. They kept checking on me. I was itching all over and we all agreed that I needed more Benadryl but also that I shouldn't drive home after taking the full adult dose. I decided to go home and then take some more Benadryl once I got home. My throat was starting to get tight, but it wasn't awful. I took another 25 mg of Benadryl when I got home, for a total of 50 mg. After about 15 minutes, the itching went away. I had to lie down about 30 minutes later when the Benadryl made me sleepy. I didn't have any more serious issues after that.

Approximately 3 to 4 minutes after receiving my first vaccine, I had a hot feeling travel from my toes up to my head. I then became dizzy and felt very faint. The tip of my tongue also became numb. I was too embarrassed to alert the hospital worker. The sensation lasted about a minute. However, the last 2 1/2 days I have been having a fast heart rate after doing minimal activities. I feel very winded by the slightest task. I did go to a clinic today to get my vitals checked. They were fine- but I still continue to feel like my heart rate spikes when I do something as minimal as emptying the dishwasher. It?s very scary and uncomfortable and makes me fearful of taking the second shot.

About 5 minutes after shot, while seated quietly, sudden onset of coughing and difficulty breathing. This is typical of my acute asthma symptoms. It worsened from a few coughs to uncontrollable coughing over about 2 minutes. Took two puffs of albuterol inhaler, coughing and breathing difficulty resolved over another 5 minutes. No further asthma symptoms in week since vaccination. It's unclear if the asthma attack was related to the vaccine. But I often go months without needing to use an inhaler, so timing is suspicious. My usual asthma triggers are environmental allergens (dust, cats), food (hazelnuts), or viral infection. I had been sick with a cold, but with no lingering asthma symptoms for 4 days prior to the vaccine. I also had more typical moderate side effect symptoms the next day (fatigue, sore arm, muscle aches).

About 15 minutes later I started to feel disoriented, lightheaded and felt like I was going to lose consciousness and I felt my heart racing. When they took my blood pressure it was 148/80. Then I started to have difficulty breathing. They took me to the ER in the same facility but the symptoms had resolved I believe because I drank plenty of water while I had the symptoms.

I received my shot at approximately 12:25. Within 5 minutes of my shot I started to feel a bit light headed, hot, having difficulty breathing with my mask on (so I pulled my mask down which helped) and then my heart started racing! After grabbing the attention of the nurses, drinking some water and doing some calming breathing exercises my heart rate went down but not to resting. Upon further investigation through my Apple Watch Heart App, my heart rate had spiked to 141 within those first 5-7 mins of the vaccine. Monitoring myself closely over the next couple of days, my heart rate would have little spikes randomly. I?d be sitting (should be at resting heart rate of 65-70) and I?d spike into the 90?s or 80?s for a few moments then return. The first day it happened about every 20-30 minutes for 3 hours, then tapered off to once every hour or so then the next day every hour or two. By Monday April 26th I felt completely normal and have had no other concerns at this time.

The patient had a family history of cancer and heart problem. Concomitant medications included latanoprost (MANUFACTURER UNKNOWN) taken for glaucoma from Apr2021 and ongoing and gabapentin (MANUFACTURER UNKNOWN) taken for neuropathy from an unspecified start date and ongoing.

The patient did not receive any other vaccines within four weeks prior to the vaccination. The patient experienced difficulty walking and difficulty with speech / slurred speech on 23Apr2021, which required hospitalization from Apr2021 to 26Apr2021. The patient also experienced body pain, achy and uncomfortable, overall feeling badly, cognition was not there, and problems with breathing on 23Apr2021; sweating and headache on 26Apr2021; vomiting and cough on 27Apr2021; feels like she is coming down with a respiratory illness and nausea on 28Apr2021; sleepiness, fatigue, stomach pain, her nerve response is strong/affected, swelling in hands and feet, aspirating, and had arm soreness in Apr2021; and fingers are going numb holding the phone on 29Apr2021. The clinical course was reported as follows: The patient stated that she works in healthcare support and she is a first responder; she identifies as a person with a disability (unspecified). She stated that she did not have very many side effects with first dose, not enough to be a problem. By dinnertime, closer to 18:00-19:00 on 23Apr2021, she started experiencing difficulty walking and with her speech. She was concerned about having a stroke but that she is active and generally healthy. This was unusual for her and she started feeling pain through her body and overall feeling like crap. She did not expect the neurological stuff. By the end of the night on 23Apr2021, she realized she was not feeling good and went to the hospital either that night on 23Apr2021 or early the next day on 24Apr2021 and was admitted to the hospital. The patient stated that her cognition was not there, and her speech was kind of slurry, she felt like everything was slowing, and did not feel like herself. She could not get up unassisted, could not get up out of the bed, chair, or go to bathroom, and still requires the use of a walker and bedside commode, but now with the walker and assistance caller can make it to the bathroom. She also had problems with breathing, but she had a negative COVID-19 PCR test in Apr2021 both arriving to and leaving from the hospital; she did not believe them to be COVID-19 symptoms. At the hospital they did an x-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on her brain in Apr2021 with unknown results. They gave her 3 or 4 intravenous (IV) unspecified medications and she had her complete blood count (CBC) labs done in Apr2021 with unknown results. There was an issue with her lungs, and she is currently waiting for her doctor to read report to see if there is an issue there. The patient stated that she never experienced anything like this after a vaccine. She cannot even get up and move around it is pretty serious. Caller states that at first when she had the symptoms, she thought she was going to wait it out, maybe her immune system is overresponding, give it a chance to resolve. She reported that she could not stand up, legs were shaking and that she had pain that was from her breasts down; felt like a ton of bricks. The patient stated that she is cognitively alert now, speaking normal. There are times it goes in waves where she feels like she can walk with walker but then a few hours later that is not the case. On Tuesday, 27Apr2021 night, the patient had a light dinner but then she was vomiting. Caller states that the pain was throughout her body and felt like someone lighting firecrackers. The patient initially stated 28Apr2021 was when the cough started, but later clarified she first noticed it on 27Apr2021, but at that time she was vomiting and thought it was due to that. However, the next day 28Apr2021, she still had this cough and that the cough was getting worse. She felt like she has a respiratory issue and has been coughing. She was not able to stay awake, even without taking any medications. She does take medications regularly but did not take the medications those days and not having medications would not cause sleepiness. She thought the doctor gave her sedative, but they did not. She states she had fatigue to the point where she was dead asleep, and nurse would come in to take vitals or do whatever and she would wake up suddenly with someone in front of her. She was sitting up with the nurse trying to read the discharge instructions and she fell asleep sitting up. She also complained of stomach pain. The patient had not been to work and not been having to use her brain and talking like she would for 8+ hours a day. She stated that the cough hurts, it feels like somebody is lighting firecrackers in her body. It also feels like this when she sneezes; the nerve response is strong. She reported that it is not a constant hacking cough, not really a dry cough; the cough is in-between productive and dry cough and cough is a bit better now and worse towards the evening. She still has swelling in her feet and hands. It looks like it has gone down a bit. She has a history of neuropathy and that her fingers are going numb holding the phone now. She got the shot in her left arm and those fingers are going numb. She was so tired and feels like did not get enough sleep. The fatigue had a slight improvement. She is more awake than when she was in the hospital. However, it depends as the day goes on, she is wiped out and has to go lay down. She stated that her nerve response is affected, and she had a difficult time with the neuro exam in Apr2021 with unknown results in the hospital. She was having an issue with her arms. She can't say anything about whether it affected her vision because she already has a hard time with her vision. She stated that she was throwing up pretty bad; the pain was really severe through her whole body while vomiting. After the vomiting stopped, the coughing got worse and she was coughing a little bit before the vomiting, but during the vomiting it was to the point she felt like she was drowning. She reported that she was vomiting through her nose and aspirating. After her MRI she started to get a really bad headache. Then when the nurse was coming to read the discharge information, she started to get sweats. She is not menopausal so she cannot blame the sweating on menopause, as reported. The patient also had arm soreness, but does not care about that long as it does not leave any scars. This was not a big deal for her at all. This started shortly after getting the vaccine. She waited for the observation time and no sensation out of the normal, then later towards the night started feeling like having really bad mensural cramps, like an achy feeling where have to go lie down. Then her lower half started to get worse. Her arms were affected and difficult time with the neuro testing. The patient stated she is now on the road to recovery. The clinical outcome of difficulty walking, difficulty with speech / slurred speech, body pain, achy and uncomfortable, nausea, sleepiness, fatigue, and stomach pain was recovering and of overall feeling badly, cognition was not there, problems with breathing, sweating, headache, vomiting, cough, feels like she is coming down with a respiratory illness, her nerve response is strong/affected, swelling in hands and feet, aspirating, had arm soreness, and fingers are going numb holding the phone was unknown.

I had the typical sore arm after the short for approximately 72 hours. The worst of it, the first 24. I did get some intense diarrhea as well for a few days but as I'm near my period, I haven't any idea if it's due to that. On the 27th of May in the evening, I noticed my lymph nodes visibly swollen out of nowhere by my clavicle and they were incredibly painful to palpate. Upon going to the ER they noted that my lymph nodes in my throat were also swollen but not painful. This being a new thing to me, I called the nurse line who advised me to go to the ER.

I woke up on the 4/13/2021 with hives all over my body I did not know what it was I had no pain at injection site I felt fine I went about my business the next day I felt like there were ants crawling under my skin by Thursday the feeling of heat kept rising in my skin i would look and it would be hives the following the bloody noses began every three days i get nose bleeds. the hives has gotten worse I am now taking 6 Benadryl's a day just to avoid itching my skin off I went to medical facility where i received 2 steroid injections. The dr does not know what to do, I had to go to the hospital to cauterize the inside of my nose they could not figure out the cause. I had a stroke back in Oct and I thought maybe something was going on but the Dr said it was not associated. Ever since I received the shot I have not been the same. Right before the hives appear, it feels like the stinging burning feeling right after someone slaps your skin. This lasts for 30 seconds. My skin is dark but my skin turns red with the hives. They gave me Zofran for the nausea, they also gave me a nose pincher thing that I use when I have nosebleeds. Also, I thought it was allergies but I have congestion that have no diagnosis. It is hard to breathe. I feel like I have Covid but I do not. The doctors say I have insomnia, I have headaches due to the congestion. I also feel tired. I have dizziness that feels like I am on a merry go round that I can't get off. Walking up stairs exhausts me which is unusual because I am a physically fit individual. I have had to take a lot of days off from work due to these side effects. Taking as many Benadryl's as I do causes drowsiness and I am a single mother of 4, I cannot be drowsy.

Shortly after the shot (on the same day as the shot), I had some expected side effects, including arm soreness, headache and fatigue. Toward the evening, I began experiencing aches throughout my body, pins and needles, and mild chest pain. The next day, my right lower leg and foot became numb (felt like it was "asleep"). The leg/foot numbness persisted (on and off) for over a week, and kept me awake at nights because it was so unusual and couldn't be shaken off. Over the next week, I also developed stiff joints on my hands, fingers and feet, as well as various pains in those areas. Exactly one week after the vaccine, my chest pain became much more severe and localized to my heart. It felt like my heart was being squeezed. I felt some shortness of breath as well, so I used a finger pulse oximeter to take my oxygen. My oxygen reading was normal, but my heart rate reading did not stabilize (it kept changing from 90's to 60's). My headache was also much more severe and I could not do much for the next two days except rest. After 3 days, the chest pain went away. However, I still have pins and needles and joint pain/stiffness that comes and goes. Summary: Arm soreness: Started on the day of the vaccine and lasted about 4 days, then came back briefly exactly one week later. Headaches: Started on the day of the vaccine and lasted for over a week. Fatigue: Started on the day of the vaccine and lasted for over a week. Body aches: Started the evening of the vaccine and lasted over a week Pins and needles: Started the evening of the vaccine and lasted over a week (still ongoing) Chest pain: Started the evening of the vaccine and became very severe (with irregular heart rate) one week after the vaccine Numbness: Started the day after the vaccine and lasted over a week (still ongoing) Stiff and painful joints: Started the day after the vaccine and lasted over a week (still ongoing)

Went to the car w/daughter after observation period. As she was leaving the parking garage she started having palpitations, was holding her chest, starting "doing breathing techniques." Throat then "dried out," drank water, then after a while it was hard to drink the water. Daughter told her that her face was swollen.

Within 25 minutes of receiving the vaccine, my left arm became very heavy and there was a tingling/neuro sensation in left wrist/hand. A pressure began in the anterior of my throat which increased gradually. I sought treatment in our Urgent Care just after noon that same day. The Provider monitored my vitals which were good and administered liquid Pepcid. Said Provider chose not to give Benadryl as I had taken Zyrec that morning for my allergies. I was discharged from the Urgent Care and went back to work at 1245. At 1730 hours, I had a slight headache above my right eye and extreme right-sided jaw pain with tooth sensitivity. These lasted for only 10 minutes. At 1830, the anterior and bilateral portions of my throat began to feel "prickly" and I developed a wheeze. I used an albuterol inhaler to relieve the wheeze successfully. At this time I also developed an itchiness throughout my whole body, worse on left side than right side. I took 100mg of Benadryl with no relief. At 0300, I took another dose of 100mg of Benadryl with no relief. I also took an itch pill/antihistamine of my husband's which provided no relief. At 0800, I took 20 mg of Zyrtec. At 1030, I took 100mg of Benadryl. I continued to use Benadryl throughout the day, every 4-5 hours. At 1800, I had a fullness in my throat, a tightness in my chest and my left shoulder blade felt almost numb. I also had a hoarse voice which passed by the next morning. The chest tightness was intermittent over the next day or two. On Friday, the itchiness had improved some but was still prominent. I continued to use Zyrtec and Benadryl throughout the day. My Primary Doctor called in Prednisone if needed. By Saturday morning, I felt MUCH better. Today is Sunday and I am no longer itching and I feel so much better today.

( I did not remove my mask) My heart then started to race and I felt a warming, tingling feeling throughout my body. I felt a little hot and light headed. I stayed sitting in my chair, tried to take some deep breath, and everything went away. This lasted about 30 to 60 seconds.

About 45 minutes to an hour after the administration of the vaccine m, my cheeks became red, hot, and swollen. There were also hives. I took Benadryl which stopped the spreading but it did not go away. I had shortness of breath, and by about 6:00 it was hard to breath when lying down. I did an albuterol treatment with my nebulizer. It helped but it took much longer than usual. There were was about 30 minutes that I found my epipen and was going to the ED if it got worse. My breathing improved. The red changed to pink but was still swollen and tight 7 hours later. The second one of Benadryl helped get rid of most of the pinkness. When I woke up this morning, I had a little bit of a wheezy cough that I didn?t have yesterday. My daily Zyrtec and singular helped that a little. I have new hives along my jawline this morning that are very minor but they do itch. The redness and swelling was similar to reactions I?ve gotten when I drink a beer or have eaten soft shell crab, but typically Benadryl will clear that up and it doesn?t linger for so long. This was more aggressive. My side effects at this point are minor, but I have a call in to my allergist to see if I should be doing anything different and questions about the second dose.

got Shot about 8:30; immediately after getting the shot, I had the same feeling as my breath being taken away and the taste (just like after getting an IV cleaned with saline). Nurses told me to sit up front to be observed and waited 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, I began getting very warm (went outside to get fresh air); went to vehicle, took mask off face, was still feeling very hot, Face was bright red, lips were very red (looked like I had on makeup and I didn't have any on). Took 4 children's Benadryl (dissolvable). Went back to work. redness started to go away. Throughout the morning, I continued having the feeling of breath being taken away and the taste. It wasn't as bad, so I didn't worry. My lips were not too swollen, face was still swollen. I have had MANY reactions to food allergies and didn't wanna "cause" a scene. By 1:30, I was in a meeting trying to talk and my tongue started to feel thick and it was harder to talk. I took 2 adult Benadryl's and tried to work some more to keep my mind off of the reaction. I ended up being very tired and laid down. I slept till about 5pm and seemed okay after. Nothing else was done. My muscle was sore, no other symptoms.

Patient felt faint nearly immediately after but said she wasn't having problems breathing. She was told to breath deeply and she quickly started feeling "a little better" so she was helped to a chair with arm rests in the room. She said she had an orange in her bag, so she started eating her orange. Just a minute later she said she was going to pass out, so the pharmacist caught her. He held her up in the chair and tried to revive her for a few moments but noticed that the blood was draining from her face and her lips were turning blue so yelled for one of his technicians to call 911 and the other to grab an epi pen. He then lowered her to the floor in case he needed to begin to resuscitate while the technician brought him the epipen. While lowering her she urinated on herself. As the pharmacist went to check her vitals before administering the epipen and beginning cpr if necessary the patient suddenly gasped once and her eyes opened widely, but not continue to breath. Upon inspection in her mouth there was a piece of orange near the bottom of the throat. The pharmacist asked if she was choking and she did not response at all, but did not start visibly breathing either. So the pharmacist swiped the piece of orange out quickly, in case it was either previously lodged or patient would have to be resuscitated. She did not seem to enjoy this and this seemed to wake her up and she quietly gasped not choking. She started to quickly improve and admitted that she was feeling better, and had passed out before after getting blood drawn but never after a shot so didn't mention this. While this was happening a police office was going through the drive through so the technician called him in for assistance and he arrived around this time. He asked her a few questions like "what's her name, who's president, how many quarters are in a dollar" which she was able to answer. She said she was mostly embarrassed and was feeling much better. She sat up in the chair again about the time the emts came in. The checked her out, but she didn't want to go to the Emergency Room. She was driven home by her father. I called her later around 6 pm that night and she said she was feeling totally fine and I advised her to please call her PCP and discuss this incident with him or her.

Within an hour of receving the vaccine, I became dizzy, had face tingling and arm tingling and felt mentally foggy. As the day progressed, I felt a fullness in my throat and fatigue. Over the next week, the dizziness became worse, I experienced intense headaches and shortness of breath for several days. I had difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams. I have had thyroiditis twice in my life after giving birth to my 2 children with similar dizziness and throat fullness. I decided to contact my doctors and had my thyroid levels checked. My TSH was abnormal and my doctor thinks I could be having another episode of thyroiditis. My menstrual cycle arrived a week early. Following this, I continued to have dizziness, throat fullness, and intense headaches. I developed sore breasts and breast discharge as well as in increase in frequency of urination. I decided to postpone the second shot until I was feeling better as past episodes of thryoiditis took about 2 months to resolve. My next menstrual period was a week late, also accompanied by mood swings, breast tenderness and intense headaches. SIx weeks later, I continue to experience occasional dizziness and throat fullness and increased urination. Prior to the vaccine, I was feeling fine and it seems like the vaccine triggered some kind of hormone/endocrine response in my body. I have not had reactions to any vaccines prior to this. I am quite hesitant to receive the second vaccine and am wondering if I should wait a period of time and try something different such as the Johnson and Johnson one. I? not quite sure what in the Pfizer vaccine ( perhaps the mRNA?) could have triggered this reaction in my thyroid and endocrine system. and would appreciate guidance on what to do next as I would like to be fully protected from COVID-19 but do not want to endure these unusual side effects.

While walking to the observation area after I got the vaccine, I became lightheaded and short of breath. I needed assistance to a chair. Things began to spin, voices sounded far away, I felt like it was hard to breathe and my throat began to close up. I felt really hot - my clothes were soaked with sweat and my husband (and the paramedics) said I was bright red. I genuinely believed I would pass out. When I sat for a minute with my head back I felt more stable. Then I felt like I had pins and needles all over my body, worst in my feet. The symptoms felt like they came in waves - once I sat down I felt less dizzy, but still struggled with my breathing. When one thing got better, another would intensify. After a couple of minutes my breathing felt much better and I got a metal taste in my mouth and my feet really hurt with pins/needles. The whole thing lasted about 8 minutes, when although I felt tired and my clothes were wet, my body felt safe and almost back to normal. I was surrounded by nurses and paramedics who monitored my vital signs and had medicine nearby, but never administered anything. My body recovered on its own and after 15 minutes I felt great and I gathered my things and drove home. The EMT who said goodbye encouraged me to call my doctor if I felt I was getting worse.

Short Summary: DVT followed by Multiple Bilateral Pulmonary Embolisms (significant blood clots in both lungs). Context: After the first vaccine (about a week before my second vaccine), I self diagnosed myself with a calf injury due to extreme pain in my calf that felt like a continuous cramp. The extreme pain lasted until my second shot (about a week). When going for my second shot, I reported a rash with hives on my lower abdomen that had appeared within five hours of my first shot, so they requested I stay a little longer for observation. That night I began having some breathing difficulties, but assumed they were to be expected. The breathing difficulties continued to get worse until my nurse practitioner told me to go directly to the nearest ER (2/16/21), where I was officially diagnosed with multiple bilateral pulmonary embolisms. I was admitted to healthcare facility for 24-48 hours, until an EKG revealed heart abnormalities that caused them to use a physician's transport to move me to another unit. I was discharged from the hospital on 2/2/21 after I stabilized from heparin shots, avoiding more invasive procedures. I have been in ongoing recovery since then, receiving ongoing care from a hematologist and pulmonologist. A little extra context for you - I arrived to the hospital with diabetic ketoacidosis and have an endocrinologist since hospitalization that has diagnosed me with Type 1 Diabetes (previously misdiagnosed as type 2 - I'm now on insulin which is controlling my blood glucose well).

The doctor administered the shot and the hard time breathing and coughing stopped like 30 seconds after. However, she is still having a hard time to breathe.

On day three after my Covid vaccine, after experiencing mostly mild side effects for the first two days, I experienced a severe episode of tachycardia while walking uphill. This is a walk I do three times a week and have never felt this way before. I couldn't catch my breath, and my heart rate remained abnormally elevated for another fifteen minutes. I walked down the hill and spoke to my doctor, who said it was likely a vaccine side effect and I should rest for the day. I continued to experience episodes of tachycardia, with heart rate in the 130s, throughout the rest of the day. I was short of breath just walking to the bathroom. My doctor had me come in and performed an EKG, which was normal. I continued having these symptoms the rest of the day, until eventually my heart rate stabilized after 9pm. The next day I felt very tired, but no longer experienced the tachycardia. I had a follow up at my clinic and another normal EKG. Then yesterday evening, which was day 5 after the vaccine (technically day 6 maybe), I was walking my dog on a flat surface, taking my time, and I became short of breath, with pressure and tightness in my chest. I was unable to get a deep breath for another 30 minutes. Today, day 6/7 after my vaccine, I am fatigued, and continue to feel pressure and tightness in my chest throughout the day. I have asthma, and this feels different, though I have been using my inhaler to try to open up the tightness I'm experiencing. I also continue to have stomach pain and diarrhea since day one after receiving the vaccine. I also had that with the first vaccine three weeks ago--stomach pain and diarrhea.

The rash to left chest around her Remodulin catheter line (dermatitis contact previously reported) was also reportedly itchy at night. On an unknown date in 2021, the patient's oxygen saturations dropped to 85% on room air (oxygen saturation decreased). The patient continued to have rash on her chest (dermatitis contact previously reported). On 29Jan2021, 10 months 27 days after initiating IV Remodulin, the patient was in the emergency room due to increased shortness of breath, pressure on her chest, edema in her feet and a weight gain of 2 pounds overnight. All the tests were negative but during walking test, the patient's oxygen saturation dropped to 85% on room air. The patient was advised to wear mask continuously. 2 weeks after receiving the first COVID-19 vaccine, the patient had heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and chest pressure 2 weeks after receiving the first COVID-19 vaccine (dyspnoea and chest discomfort previously reported). The patient went to the ER (emergency room), had worked up and was seen by a pulmonologist, nothing was found, and the patient was released home. The prescribing physician's practice ordered her to wear oxygen (O2) continuously. The patient said that she only wears it when she leaves the house and at night and was fine. She felt this episode was related to the COVID-19 vaccine and was not receiving the second dose. The patient stated that her physician had took her off the Opsumit due to shortness of breath (dyspnoea previously reported). The events 'blood clot in neck', 'shortness of breath (dyspnea)', 'pressure on her chest', 'edema to her feet', 'weight gain of two pounds overnight' and 'heart palpitations', resulted in emergency room visit. The event, 'diarrhea', was controlled with diphenoxylate and atropine (LOMOTIL). The patient had a walking distance test on an unspecified date in 2021 (results were not provided) and weight was 209 lbs on an unspecified date in 2021. The events, shortness of breath (dyspnea)', 'pressure on her chest' and 'heart palpitations', was reported as serious (medically significant). The events rash on chest, and rash on chest possibly due to tape (dermatitis contact) had not resolved while the outcome of the rest of the events was unknown.

I had my 2nd vaccine on 4/5 @ 4:30pm. I felt slightly tired afterwards and noticed that I couldn't stop yawning. After getting home, I ate dinner and went to bed at around 9pm. At around 2:30am, I woke up feeling an intense heaviness on my chest as if something was sitting on top of me and crushing my upper chest. I stood up and had to immediately crouch over due to the intensity of the pain and heaviness. My husband had to hold me up and suggested going to the hospital. I was terrified and just wanted to wait and catch my breath. It was hard to believe what was happening and I did not want to go to the hospital. After about 5 mins, the intensity of the pain subsided and I was able to breathe normally. I was able to go back to sleep with minor discomfort and woke up at around 6am without any symptoms. About 2 weeks later, I started to have chest pain, which I had never experienced before. I tried to attribute it to all sorts of things, but it didn't go away so on 5/1, I went to City MD to have an EKG and chest X Ray. Both came out normal and they told me to follow up with a cardiologist for due diligence. I followed up with a cardiologist and they also ran an EKG and X Ray with normal results. Depsite normal results, I thought it was important to report this because I am a healthy and fit 42 year old with no prior heart history and found it uncanny that I had my first "heart event" within 12 hours of my 2nd vaccine.

The morning following my injection I had very bad left armpit pain and I could actually feel a swollen lymph node. This pain was worse than the injection site pain. As the morning went on I developed a heaviness in my chest-which was worse when I took a deep breath-and palpitations. I also had all the typical symptoms like lightheadedness, body aches, fatigue, nausea, a low grade fever and headache. All the symptoms resolved after 1-2 days except for the chest heaviness and occasional palpitations. After 6 days of no relief of the chest symptoms I went to my local clinic. My heart rate was elevated but the Dr there told me I did not have a PE based on my symptoms. He said to go to the ER if I wanted to have a CT scan of my chest to rule out a PE for peace of mind. The next morning I saw my primary doctor since I didn't get any real answers of what my symptoms were. Again my heart rate was elevated. She did an EKG which did not show any palpitations but she diagnosed my symptoms as peri/myocarditis and I was prescribed 5-10 days of naproxen.

This is an addendum to a previous report I filed (VAERS ID: 1446698, E-Report Number: 578250). My reaction continued and got much worse after I filed the other report. About an hour after I received the first shot of the Pfizer Covid vaccine, I started to have an allergic reaction. I felt very dizzy and weak, my throat started to close up, and my heart rate was all over the place. I took some Benadryl and some other antihistamines and that reversed the allergic reaction. I didn't need my EpiPen. About 6-7 hours after I got vaccinated, I started to experience a strange neurological event. It was like I was extremely drunk. I was slurring my speech, my vision went dark & blurry, I was very confused, couldn't make the right words, couldn't remember how old I was. My friend called 911 and sent paramedics to my house. They assessed me for a stroke or heart attack and said my heart rate & blood pressure were very unstable, but it didn't appear that I was having a stroke or heart attack at the time. I refused to go to the hospital as it was 4th of July, very late at night, and I was confused about how I was going to get home (I live very rurally and didn't have a partner who could have come with me). The next day I went to the hospital. They said something was going on with my heart and referred me for follow up care. They said I had an abnormal EKG. The ER doctor said I did appear to have an allergic reaction and advised me not to get the second shot. He could not explain the neurological event. He said it could have been a TIA or something similar, but there would be no way to evaluate that unless I had a brain scan at the time of the reaction. He advised me to follow up with my PCP and a cardiologist and any other specialists I may need. It has been nearly 3 weeks since I had the vaccine injury and I am still having heart problems. I am waiting on follow-up care with a cardiologist, but they are booked 2 months out so I don't know what's going on. I have palpitations several times a day, and shortness of breath. Sometimes it's very difficult to breathe. These episodes come on suddenly and will resolve, but will happen again throughout the day. Sometimes at night my heart will be pounding so hard it wakes me up. Sometimes if I'm lying in bed, I can see my heart pounding so hard it shakes my chest and abdomen. This is new and has not happened to me before. It's worse on exertion but happens when I'm sitting or lying down. I don't know what this condition is, but I did not have it before I got vaccinated. It doesn't appear to be myo- or pericarditis, as there is no severe chest pain or fever. I think it's something else, but so far nobody can tell me what it is.

I felt tightness in my chest/lungs and it hurt to breath and finally after a week of this, I went and saw my PCP. I discussed what has happened and he said that he did not recommend that I get the second covid shot but if I did that I should wait the full 6 weeks. I was put on a steroid and a nebulizer.

About 5 minutes after the shot, I started to feel a tightness in my throat. It lasted a couple of minutes and then passed. Then about 45 minutes after I started to feel a heaviness/ache in my upper chest. This feeling continued for days. Around day four I began to have a feeling of great pressure in my throat, particularly when swallowing. I noticed that my heartrate was elevated, but that might have been because the feeling was very stressful. The feeling would increase when I turned my head to the side or put my chin down.This feeling persisted for 3 days. After three days the feeling changed slightly and started feeling more like the sensation one gets when you have food stuck in your throat. As I type this, it is 8 days after the vaccine and I still feel this sensation in my throat.

While patient was receiving her second dose of the Pfizer brand Covid-19 vaccination (at 14:50), she mentioned to me that she had a sustained local reaction to her first dose. Her arm had a hard, red, hot spot for approximately a week. At this time I told her we would like her to stay under observation for 30 Min instead of the normal 15 min. At approximately 25 min post vaccination, the pt reported the following: "arm felt heavy, both arms did, but more so the affected arm, instant headache, sore neck, vision went fuzzy, breathing wasn't difficult but felt labored, throat felt like it was closing/congested, rash on the inside of the affected arm".   Pt stated that her heart felt like it was "pounding".   VS: 162/96, 99% RA, HR in the 70's.   Patient was administered 50ml IM diphenhydramine and monitored for 90 minutes in the clinic area. Dr. was consulted and also spoke with the pt, advising her to continue with OTC diphenhydramine once at home.   The symptoms resolved after approximately 40 minutes. By 17:00 the patient was deemed stable to go home with the instructions to go immediately to ED should any further Sx present. It was verified that she did not live alone and would have someone with her that could assist.   Pt was subsequently followed up with a phone call on the next day by RN who relayed that she was very tired, but no other complications.

2230 feeling of unease, body aches, site arm tingling, general mild aches 0220 awoke from sleep choking, having difficulty breathing, felt very SOB, worse with exertion or trying to speak, great difficulty swallowing and speaking even in brief words. Took 50mg of Benadryl PO and went to the ED, about a 15 minute car ride. Had tingling and numbness of the tongue and back of throat by arrival but still able to breath with focus. Exertion of just walking into the ED greatly increased the SOB. Was triaged, Benadryl starting to help, was able to speak a little better, 3-4 words without too much SOB caused. Was walked to a room, SOB milder with that exertion. Seen by Dr. Given IV Sol-u-Medrol and 50mg Benadryl. Was observed on cardiac monitor/Q15VS for a few hours and discharged home around 5:30. Given Rx of Prednisone 20mg -3tabs x2 days, 2tabs x5 days all once a days and told to take 50mg of Benadryl Q4H for the next 24 hours at least and to return prn.

I also continued my normal HS antihistamines. I had SOB on exertion, progressively better from the 6th-10th with it mostly resolved to yesterday. Body aches have continued but also progressively better. Yeasterday1/12/21 the Rx of prednisone was completed and I did have some mild swelling /tingling in the throat/face/mouth return in the evening, took Benadryl 50mg again and inhaler used.
