About half an hour after receiving 2nd dose, I started to feel a little nauseous and my throat felt like it was tightening a bit. It was nothing too major, but I did call paramedics to monitor me. The episode subsided about a half hour after that. However, I did have a more severe episode a few days later on March 5th, in which I had to receive urgent care. It was shortly after lunch which included a spicy hot sauce I had a little bit of. I started having a similar reaction as earlier described, which eventually subsided once at the doctors office for a bit. However, it did lead to a panic attack, which is something I had never had before. Overall, I had never reacted like this before. I am wondering if one the side effects of the vaccine may be causing it.

1st Pfizer shot beginning of April went fine. Only a sore arm. 2nd shot this past Saturday was a different story. I got the shot around 3:30 and felt great until about 7. My arm started getting very sore. It got better a little later in the day. Next morning I felt pretty fatigued but nothing I haven?t felt before. Sore arm was still there. Pretty manageable. Had to pick up groceries and that was a mistake. Had to take deep breaths and my knees were in a lot of pain as I got out of the car and walked through the store (I injured them years ago and now have Baker's cysts). Wife brought me home and I had rigors on the ride back. I got home around 11:45 or so and I put on a blanket. I felt so hot I started to get a little bit delusional and very sad/started getting teary. Took off blanket and couldn?t get off the couch or walk without help. Knees now felt like about to fall apart. Wife takes temp shows 107, makes ice bath, I get in and it goes down to 105 a few minutes later. Temp went down to 103 over the next 15-20 minutes and stayed there. Got out with her help and still couldn?t stand up or walk without help. Sat upright in bed rest of the day. Fever ranged from 98-103, mostly 101-103. Took a very cold shower later in the day but temp still stayed in the same range. All other symptoms mentions else stayed the same. I also now had no appetite and felt nauseous. Stomach felt rock hard, and I didn?t feel too with it. Finally fell asleep later at night and woke up feeling way better but still awful. Monday and Tuesday I had to take off work I felt so fatigued. Both of those days I had no fever, it went away from Sunday night into Monday. I can walk by myself now and just feel a little fatigued today. I have my appetite back now and am back to work. I should mention that I took Tylenol which didn?t help. Ibuprofen I took later in the day and that might have helped a little. Took Benadryl later and that helped with sleep.

The female medical employee, who was administering the vaccination. The Pfizer Vaccination. Opened a shot syringe. That had an empty vile. The syringe did not have the dosage of vaccine. The female medical employee, documented on my immunization card the sticker Lot number #EN6204, but the vaccine Lot Number (the syringe received) was not the Lot Number indicated on the immunization card. Why? The female medical employee, called over the military personnel whom was being the security for the vaccination site. The female military personnel was holding an open unit syringe vile dosage of the vaccine. The female medical employee showed the empty syringe vaccine to the military personnel. She said, "The dosage fell out." The female medical employee, took the open package, of the syringe vile, that contained a measured dose of the vaccine. Which is not considered the full dosage, or considered a safe dosage of the vaccine, because the package was opened. Not in front of the patient. And. Was open, when the military personnel, who was holding this vile, was walking, with the open package, around without proper medical gear. The medical employee. Quickly took out the syringe. Didn't explain which and what that syringe was, and just injected the dosage into my arm. I know, that practice was malpractice. I know I experienced malpractice. And. It's obvious the Government is going to do anything about it. This is not a petty situation. I don't know where that needle from. What has been introduced to that open syringe package. I did experience very bad side affects: headaches, muscle pains, tiredness, fatigue, weakness, low strength, dizziness, partial blindness, overwhelming stress, back pain, joint pain, spinal pain, chills, fever like symptoms, nausea, spontaneous pain, soreness in the arm, swelling throughout my body, difficulty breathing, short breaths.

When I woke up on Sunday, April 11th, 2021 at around 9am, I have felt like my muscles have been ripped apart, I was sweating, I had labored breathing, and I could not get up for the day. I slept all day, feeling like I had the flu, and was sleeping until 7pm that day. I called out of work when I woke up because I knew on Monday I would not be able to make it, as I felt like I was very tired, lethargic, and sore. This feeling was throughout every inch of my body. I also went to take a shower that day and I had a hard time breathing in the shower, to the point where I had to sit on the edge of the tub, just to make sure I would not pass out from lack of oxygen. This was the scariest sickness I have ever had in my entire life. I literally thought I was going to die. Monday came around and I felt even worse, my muscles were sore, I felt extremely tired, I could not do anything, and I was in bed all day. Today is Tuesday, and I have felt a little bit better, but I have missed two days of work because of the effects this vaccine has had on my body. I made a virtual appointment with a doctor on the app on phone and met with Doctor who basically told me that the only thing I could do for myself is take Ibuprofen every 8 hours for the pain and swelling that might occur and drink plenty of gatorade. It is Tuesday, April 13th, 2021 at 11:29pm at night and I still feel the same as Monday, very weak, tired, and sore all over my body. I have never had this with a vaccine before, until I got the COVID-19 one. I have taken the Flu Vaccine, Hep A, Tantnius, Chicken Pox and never felt like I was so tired I could not get out of bed from these vaccines.

About a half hour after getting these symptoms, I took 10mg of children?s Benadryl (Diphenhydramine). I then found two hives/itchy bumps. One on my right arm near my elbow and one on the left side of my abdomen. About 20 minutes after taking the Benadryl, the symptoms mostly went away and I felt very tired. I still have some wheezing.

After first Pfizer dose, I was just feeling really tired. After the second dose, around that afternoon/evening I started feeling my mouth feeling weird. The next day I saw blisters filled with yellow/whiteish puss in my tongue. I went to the ER later i felt a lump under left shoulder while showering. On 28 MAY 3 AM I suddenly felt my face feeling numb and tingly along with my legs. Mind you I have been in the field emplacing howizters for the past few days in a field exercise. I also jammed my finger on an 80 lb metal bar on 26 MAY and got my finger poked with a hot device that also drained the blood after getting an xray. I called medical ER at 242 and spoke to Dr.(?) Doctor did not give me his name spelling after I asked for the spelling and he told me that I could always come in to the ER. I told him whether the finger pricking and blooding draining could cause the left facial numbness and legs tingleness. He said no so i am now assuming it is an adverse side effect. I am a smart guy have bachelors in journalism but right now I cannot concentrate and filling out htis form hastily just i case the effects get worse and I have to go to hospital er. Talking to the Dr. (?) was harder than normal and he asked if my breathing was normal, I said i am breathing heavily, which I did not have much control over. He said breathe normally and I will be better from the tingliness. I can write well I am a journalism major but this is hard to write for me . I am also feeling chills and I am also not feeling well. I was able to get this link from my local online meeting and I am glad I can contribute to the research and science in general. I wish the doctor had tested me for possible problems when I had an adverse effect from the first vaccine but the doctor told me to come back if the "viral infection" gets worse after I breathe normal. I did take a PT test and my 2 mile run time increased and it was much harder to run than the 2 mile run. Time went up by at least 3 minutes.

No initial reaction to the vaccine, but I started to get what I thought to be a sinus infection about two days after the first vaccine. Congested, but overall healthy (ran 13 miles on 04/04/2021). I woke up in the night about a week after the first vaccine (around 4:00 AM on 04/07/2021) having trouble breathing -- tight throat and chest. I thought it was my sinus infection, received a negative covid test, and started taking augmentin. The tightness continued for about 3 days along with a shortness of breath, no other symptoms though. My resting heart rate was also hovering around 100 bpm until the weekend before the second vaccine. I had no initial reaction to the second vaccine either. However, about a week later the same thing happened. I woke up around 1:00 AM 04/26/2021 hyperventilating with a tight throat and chest. This continued for about 3 days again, so I took another covid test -- negative again. My resting heart rate was back up to 100 bpm. I started to think it was a strange reaction to the vaccine, so I still had my infusion for Crohn's Disease on 04/30/2021. Blood pressure was okay, somewhere around 104/67 I think, but my heart rate was 107 bpm. After that weekend, I felt back to normal. Not sure if this was all caused by the vaccines, but it seems possible.

The morning after the first inoculation I woke up at 7:30 am with severe chest pain . It would hurt to inhale and exhale and I was short of breath, possibly due to the not being able to inhale without pain. Breathing was shallow as to not cause pain. I administered hydrocodone 15 mg PO q6h for pain. I told my pulmonologist who stated it sounded like pleuritis. He stated I should go to the hospital if the pain comes back . I admit I did not follow this order as I felt the pain med resolved it and did not want to go to an ER if it wasn?t critical. The chest pain lasted 96 hours and then resolved . The pain was severe enough to wake me from my sleep multiple times. That was the only AE associated with the first shot . The second shot had many more side effects , Severe nausea , emesis , diarrhea , migraine headache , high fever , shaking , and sinus discharge. The chest pain also came back and I did the same regiment of pain meds to treat the severe pain. These side effects lasted 7 days and then resolved .

I am an internal medicine resident at a hospital. By the end of one my call days I started having substernal chest pain, non radiating that was worsened with breathing. I initially thought it was heartburn so I took tumms followed by PPI without any improvement. The pain continued to worsen so I did a quick bedside echocardiogram on myself (poor quality probe), however did not appreciate any effusion, wall motion abnormalities or change in EF. I continued my shift and went home in poor shape unable to speak due to pain on deep breathing. When I laid on my bed the pain worsened significantly and improved when sitting up, so I suspected pericarditis and started NSAIDs. Symptoms improved significantly the following morning and resolved in 36-48 hours with the NSAID course. I never did an EKG to confirm the diagnosis and was never started on anything other than the NSAID course due to uncertain diagnosis. After hearing concerns with myocarditis with pfizer I thought I would report my case knowing it is nearly 2 months after vaccination and there is no definitive diagnosis.

Day after vaccine, I was sick all day. Hard to breathe; heart rate would shoot up and then come down in one minutes sessions; I had body aches - all over. Doing anything felt painful. Eating was uncomfortable and sitting was uncomfortable. I had some fever. 238.5 Celsius and it got a little worse during the day (and that number is the end of the day). I had some pain in the chest, too - center of chest. I also had a headache throughout the day. I did a televisit (wednesday) and she advised to take acetaminophen for fever. She said my blood pressure was fine and my heart rate was still under 100 most of the time. The next day, everything seemed fine - all symptoms seemed to go over night except heart rate - still was elevated and the difficulty breathing was still there. Even sitting - my breathing and heartrate felt like it was working. Friday, things were mostly similar - heart rate came mostly down. But end of day, difficulty breathing came worse and chest pain became worse and tightening of chest was more intense. No fever after Wed though. I went to see the Urgent Care doctor at Urgent Care. Friday, the second week after the vaccine, the symptoms received. Pain in left arm started (started Tuesday or Wed the second week) and I had chest pain and tightness in the chest and slight difficulty breathing, nausea, dizziness and no fever. ER - on Saturday - 11:30PM - they did more tests - everything heart related came back fine so they ruled out Heart attack; but didnt' know what it was; gave medication for nausea in case it would help. IV medication and then one medicine to drink on the spot. It didn't really help - the symptoms continued and slowly disappeared the next day (the second Sunday after the vaccine). Nothing new since then.

Patient received the COVID-19 vaccine on 5/12/21. He stayed 15 minutes in the vaccination area and went back to work. He did NOT have any issues until that evening. He had respiratory issues for 3 weeks after the vaccination. He did NOT go to the ER or a doctors office for evaluation. He "toughed" it out at home and eventually felt better. He felt like he "couldn't breathe." I had a long conversation with him on 6/30/21 when he came in for his 2nd shot. I had concerns about giving him a 2nd vaccination and told him that he would need to speak to his medical doctor / an allergist to see if he can get a 2nd shot. i did NOT give him the 2nd shot. He did not have a typical reaction (in my opinion) and did NOT sound like a cold or illness. I advised him to log his side effects in the V-Safe website and he did this today.

20 hours after injection, I started having progressively worsening severe back pain, neck pain, headache, chills (no fever), skin sensitivity, noise sensitivity, fatigue, and brain fog. 2 days after the vaccine, I had abdominal pain, and cough. All of that is now better except for the cough. It is now 4 days after the vaccine, and it seems the vaccine has triggered an asthma attack requiring inhaled albuterol. My asthma attacks typically linger for a couple weeks after upper respiratory infections, and this feels exactly like that, I wouldn?t be surprised if this asthma attack persists for a couple of weeks.

A 30-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Batch/lot number: EL0140, Expiry Date: 31Mar2021), via an unspecified route of administration on 31Dec2020 13:00 at single dose for Covid-19 immunization. The patient had no relevant medical history and concomitant drug. The patient experienced recently got the vaccine and also came down with covid on 04Jan2021 00:30, mild congestion/the congestion went into full nasal drainage on 31Dec2020, loss of smell on 02Jan2021, exhaustion/feeling tired on 03Jan2021, felt like he couldn't breathe, he still has his sense of taste, but it is dulled on an unspecified date. He was a pharmacist. He received his first dose of the COVID vaccine on Thursday 31Dec2020 1pm. Shortly thereafter, he got the typical side effects of the vaccine that are posted. Then 2.5 days letter he no longer had a sense of smell. Everything he read said that he probably came in contact with COVID prior to administration. His questions was since he test positive for COVID, should he still get the second shot. He got it at a clinic. He did experience mild congestion which started by 6 o'clock. He started to notice slight congestion that kind of went away. Then, on Friday, about 24 hours later, he really noticed he had congestion. He took pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (SUDAFED) and paracetamol (TYLENOL). Then his sense of smell diminished with the congestion and felt like he couldn't breathe. On Saturday, he decided to not take medication. That was when he noticed he could not smell anything. He had full blown congestion. It probably took two days when he started to lose his sense of smell. He received the shot on Thursday. On Saturday, he lost his sense of smell. He still has his sense of taste, but it was dulled. Sunday, he was just exhausted and feeling tired. These were all listed as typical side effects except for the loss of smell. Saturday was the worst. The congestion went into full nasal drainage. On Sunday he had no sinus issues. He still hasn't gained his sense of smell back. The exhaustion set in Sunday 03Jan2020. He doesn't feel like any of the side effects are serious. The exhaustion has started to let up some so it is improving. He was pretty much back to normal. He just couldn't figure out why he had a loss of smell. He had a COVID rapid test on 04Jan2021 at 8:30 am (as reported). He received an alert and hour later that it was positive. He was wondering whether the loss of smell could be from the vaccine. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included COVID-19 rapid POC test: positive on 04Jan2021. The outcome of events for mild congestion/the congestion went into full nasal drainage was resolved on 03Jan2021, for loss of smell was not resolved, for exhaustion/feeling tired was resolving, for other events was unknown. The events were reported as non-serious.; Sender's Comments: Reported event "recently got the vaccine and also came down with covid" is considered possibly related to suspect BNT162B2 based on temporal association and known drug safety profile.

Approximately 3 weeks after first COVID shot (Pfizer), noticed shortness of breath symptoms consistently that have lasted every single day for the past 7-8 weeks. Have been to Emergency Room, followed by Cardiologist, Pulmonologist, etc and my heart and lungs are fine... physical therapist I've been to multiple times says the intercostal muscles in my ribs keep getting inflammed for an unknown reason and that is making it to where my lungs can't fully expand. Practically speaking, it means that for the last 2 months I've felt awful and felt like I can't breathe. I've never had any issues with this before and I was a healthy 30 year old. Even my general practitioner thinks that it was the vaccine at this point since nothing else changed.

These symptoms worsened throughout the day. My pulse felt weak. My breathing became rapid and shallow, even though it was not difficult to draw breath. The major symptoms on 6/7 were headache, with a sense of my motion being affected. My urine throughout this time was excessively dark, even though I was drinking more water than normal. The following day, 6/8, most of my joints began to heart, and I became very stiff; this sx lessened after taking a long, slow walk. On 6/13 another event involving slowed heart rate, subjectively weak pulse, and shortness of breath ensued. There had been no unusual or excessive physical activity, and as I had not experienced this phenomenon before receiving the second vaccine dose on 6/4, I believe that the 6/13 event was also linked to the vaccination.

I think i suffered so much pain in the 4 hours that it lasted with me until even now as i write this. Hard to describe, but my entire body has had this tiny ache that has not gone away. Not a big deal to me, but just wanted it documented. I am selecting recovered even with that tiny ache still apparent because physical pain usually takes time to heal. Assuming that's all it is.

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine I got the vaccine on Friday, and on Saturday night I developed phantosmia. Until now, basically 55h hours after the first shot, I feel cigarette smell very frequently. Sometimes is weak, sometimes is strong, but there are rare moments that I don't feel it at all - usually noticed when I start to feel it again. In the beginning, I thought that it could be caused by a roommate, but when I talked with them no one was smoking or feeling the smoke smell. When I came to lab, a clean space, I felt it again and noticed that it was really abnormal and that I should report. Additional info: I had a positive test for COVID-19 on January 16th and recovered really well after having only a mild fever for one day and a sore throat for 4 days. I am sure I also had COVID-19 in January of 2020 after a trip, when I had very bad symptoms including heavy lungs, pain in the lungs, yellow mucus, coughing, sore throat, headaches, and fever - and also a negative test for Flu at my health center. At that time, mainly because of the negative test, doctors described it as a strong cold. It lasted for two weeks. We didn't think it could be COVID at that time, though. I realized that later when we learned more about the symptoms.

On 4/19 he received the first dose of Pfizer vaccine oh 4 PM. Administration of vaccine was uneventful. The next day he noticed sore shoulder at 3 PM on 4/20 he noted he had upper wrist pain that progressed to his right thumb as well as redness with a shiny quality that was consistent with previous gout flares so he took 2 doses of colchicine and 2 doses of Advil which did not relieve his symptoms. A couple hours later he noted hand numbness and tingling as well as feet numbness and tingling bilaterally. The numbness progressed to his extremities with the left arm more affected than the right arm (he received vaccine in his left arm). He had accompanied pain of his extremities and wrists that was described as 10 out of 10. He then felt 2 episodes of chest tightness and difficulty breathing prompting him to present to the strong ED. In the ED his exam was notable for hypertension (240/90), tachycardia, wrist flexion in distress and yelling in pain. His exam also showed bilateral hyperflexion of bilateral wrist with mild swelling and diminished sensation and motor function throughout. He was administered IV hydromorphone, and Benadryl with dramatic improvement in his symptoms. His labs are notable for abnormal electrolytes including magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and he was repleted with magnesium potassium and phosphorus. He is admitted to ED OBS. overall felt his symptoms were most likely due to gout flare and hyperventilation, not likely related to vaccine.

About an hour after receiving the vaccine, I felt very tired and winded as if I was working out for hours on no food. I did eat that day. I felt dizzy and saw black dots in my vision and felt the need to sit down. I never made it to sit, rather fell flat on my face and passed out for a few moments before my cousin came and picked me up asking what happened. It was very embarrassing and I believe the fall on my face caused an infection in my jawline on the left side and a sinus infection. I was throwing up and blowing my nose from blood. Very scary sight to see.

In March 2021, I suspect that I contracted COVID-19. There were no COVID tests readily available back then so I have never confirmed but I had increased respiratory rate (as measured by my WHOOP wearable health monitor) and I lost taste and smell completely for about 2 weeks. Since then, my taste and smell have come back but not to the levels they were before then. On 4/19/2021, I received my first does of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. On 4/20/2021, I had notable trouble breathing throughout the day. I was able to exercise but with significant added difficulty. Did not notice anything else obvious. On 4/21/2021, My breathing returned to normal but I noticed that my senses of taste and smell were muted. On 4/22/2021, my senses of taste and smell were completely gone. This became obvious when a coworker complained about a strong smell of burning plastic that I could not smell at all. On 4/23/2021, my sense of taste and smell started to come back. By 4/24/2021, my sense of taste and smell was completely back and better than it had been since March 2020, when I suspect I had COVID-19. I received my second does of Pfizer today, 5/11/2021, and will monitor for symptoms.

Immediate onset of L facial weakness/inability to fully close lips on L side (contract muscles) to seal lips when eating/drinking. Evaluated in ER and stroke ruled out by negative head CT and workup. Misdiagnosed as Bell's palsy, no treatment, told it could take several weeks or months to resolve and to wait it out. Upper lip tight and smile changed. Symptoms persisted and slowly worsened/progressed, overall muscle strength diminished, some bronchospasm issues with heavy exercise. Seen by PCP and allergy doctor and told likely has exercise-induced asthma and still resolving Bell's palsy. Facial symptoms continued to worsen and began involving his palate, unable to close off sinus passage way, slurred and nasal speech in the evenings, unable to chew and swallow well towards evening. Patient feared he had ALS after researching symptoms, I started to worry it was myasthenia gravis. Saw PCP again who refused to order confirmatory lab work for MG or ALS and referred to neurology. Referral turnaround was not emergent despite several calls and attempts to escalate this issue. Unable to verbally communicate in the evenings, resorted to texting to express needs. Had a scary episode of choking due to inability to swallow, 911 called to home. Sent to ER for workup and finally a neuromuscular disorder was on the differential. Transferred to a higher level of care for on-site neurology where he received IVIG x 5 days and started pyridostigmine for likely myasthenia gravis with rapid improvement in symtoms. Plan is for continued monthly IVIG and then adding an immunosuppressant long-term in addition to his pyridostigmine.

Anaphylaxis Please note previous VAERS report of Bell's Palsy 8 days following the first dose and subsequently treated with prednisone and valacyclovir. This neurologic diagnosis was not reported by the patient during the consent process with the COVID19 vaccination center staff. Confirmed following review of the consent form. Documentation from Emergency Department Provider: Patient is serially reassessed following treatment for anaphylaxis. Patient has significant improvement in diffuse erythema and hives within 20 minutes. He has gradual improvement in his sensation of throat swelling. He is observed while in the emergency department serially over 4 hours with no recurrence of symptoms. He does not require any repeat dose of epinephrine and feels at baseline. Discussed my suspicions that patient may have had a reaction to COVID-19 vaccine as he has had no other new medications or exposures that he is aware of. As he will not be receiving another vaccine there is nothing to necessarily stay away from. Make sure he notifies individuals about this for any new vaccine should he receive them. Patient is observed for sufficient time but discussed possibility for biphasic reaction. Recommend he return should he have recurrence of symptoms. Recommend he take EpiPen as prescribed for any throat swelling or progressive shortness of breath. Recommend follow-up with a primary care provider for this visit..

Patient post-vaccination (Pfizer/0.3ml/1st dose administered @10:23a) appeared to be seizing in his chair during observation @ 10:26a. I rushed to him, requesting aid from his colleagues to help lay him on the ground and elevate his feet. He was unresponsive and disoriented, with shallow breathing and weak pulse, so I activated EMS @ 10:26a. He appeared to seize again so I instructed two men to help roll him onto his side, at which time, an RN managing the vaccines, took over monitoring while I talked to 911. EMS was on scene @ 10:29a. RN reports he'd had a vagal response, most likely due to witnessed severe anxiety during IM injection (name /right deltoid @ 10:23a). RN gave him Gatorade and he quickly became AOx3. When EMS arrived, he was able to stand up, with assist, and be placed on the gurney. EMS monitored him for ~ 20min onsite, at which time he became hypotensive, resulting in transport to the nearest ER with O2 and IV management. Per HR representative for a business patient was discharged @ ~2p the same day, with diagnosis of severe dehydration and hypokalemia, his reaction most likely a vagal event. Unknown if medications were given outpatient.

At approximately 5:20pm on 5/10/21 I started having jumbled speech. I would be speaking clearly and then random words would take the place of the words I was trying to say. I was unable to use the correct words my brain was telling myself to say. Then I started experiencing tingling sensation throughout my right arm. Believing that I could be having a stroke my wife rushed me to the emergency room at hospital. En route to the ER, my left arm began to have tingling sensation in it as well. Once at the ER I began hyperventilating. I was in the ER for approximately 4-5 hours, for 3 of those hours I had difficulty communicating and could not speak clearly. I was told I may have been having a complex migraine and was discharged and referred to a neurologist. I met with the neurologist and given that I have no history of headaches or migraines, they concluded that it most likely was not a complex migraine and discussed the possibility of an immune response. It has now been a week since my ER visit, since then I have been getting extremely fatigued every afternoon and my head feels spacey.

I had no side effects immediately after receiving either my first or second Pfizer shot. However, in both cases, a little over three weeks after I received the shot, I experienced a one day illness that started with nausea in the morning with no vomiting, followed by roughly 3/4 of the rest of the day experiencing extreme fatigue, some coughing and inability to take a full breath without coughing in the morning (this cleared by the afternoon). A lack of appetite was also observed. I don?t know if this is a side effect, or just an evenly spaced illness coincidence. However, the fact that two identical illnesses that essentially cleared in a day and mirrored some COVID symptoms affected me after receiving the vaccines makes me wonder. I?ve never had an illness like this that comes on so strong, but then clears so quickly.

Pain in upper part and side by his ribs, into the back; Pain in upper part and side by his ribs, into the back; blood clots in the lungs; Breathing was not normal; It felt like in his back, like the muscles were too tight; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient's mother). A 33-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), first dose via an unspecified route of administration, administered in arm on 17May2021 (late morning or early afternoon) at age of 33-year-old at single dose for COVID-19 immunization. There was no additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect. Medical history included the patient was diagnosed with COVID-19 in May2021, 15 days before the patient received the vaccine, he was doing very well, it was a light case. There were no concomitant medications. There was no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. After vaccination, the patient was feeling much better afterwards and felt fine. The patient did not think too much of it. As the day went on, it got worse. The patient had a very serious reaction. The patient had a blood clot in the lungs on 18May2021 and was in the hospital. It was very scary. It was referring to the Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine. The patient received it in (withheld). 15 days before the patient received the vaccine, he did have COVID. The patient's doctor recommended it was ok to go back to work and to have the vaccine. The patient had the vaccine on 17May2021 and by 20May2021, he was in the hospital with blood clots in the lungs. The lung doctor was saying that the blood clot came from the vaccine. The patient had to take blood thinners for 3 months and they are concerned about the long term. The patient was in the hospital for 2 days, in (withheld) from 18May2021 to 20May2021. On 20May2021, the reporter brought the patient home. The patient was in so much pain, reporter took him back in the morning of 21May2021. For event blood clot, it had been 2 weeks. The patient went to work and came home on 18May2021 that day early from work, around 5:00 pm, having pain. The patient called the doctor who said to take paracetamol (TYLENOL) and go to bed. By that evening around 10:00 pm, they ended up taking him to the hospital, where they said he had blood clots. His pain was in the upper part and on the side by his ribs, into the back. The reporter thought at first, it was more to the left but patient was in so much pain, she really could not tell. They said the patient had 2 blood clots, one was on each lung, but they were so small. The pain was so severe. They took the patient to the hospital and he was there 2 days. On 20May2021, they released the patient. When they went to get him on 20May2021, reporter noticed that something was wrong. They gave the patient medication, a prescription pain pill. By the morning of 21May2021, around 06:00, they took him back to the hospital. They did blood work and another CT scan, and said there was no change. When they finally got the patient back into the room, they gave him some type of injection to release the pain. The reporter literally had to call another hospital, who told her to call the nurse supervisor. The reporter was outside calling the nurse supervisor for the emergency room. Then, they said that someone would come out. It had to go that far. After that, when they gave the patient the shot, the pain did subside. When it started to ware off, they gave the patient pain medication. On 22May2021, the doctor called to check on the patient. The reporter was concerned they gave the patient the shot too soon. The doctor said that it would take a while for the medication to take effect. It felt like in his back, like the muscles were too tight and the pain was so bad. The reporter had asked about a muscle relaxer and was initially told to wait until 24May2021 but then ordered a muscle relaxer and it did seem to help some what. On 22May2021, the patient started to feel like there was not any pain and his breathing felt normal. Before that (May2021), the patient's breathing was not normal. It all started happening and could not even explain when. The event blood clots in the lungs required a visit to emergency room for twice, the first time, the patient was admitted to hospital. Treatment included pain medication or muscle relaxers, apixaban (ELIQUIS) after the blood clots. The outcome of blood clots in the lungs and muscles were too tight was unknown, the outcome of rest events was resolved on 22May2021. Information about lot/batch number has been requested.

My reactions to the second shot started with a sore arm, night sweating for the first day of injection (5/9). In the morning of the two days after the shot, there are also some minor nose bleedings. The primary reason I'm reporting is because of the symptoms below: On 5/10, I suffered from fatigue that I had to sleep every other couple of hours. In the night the adverse event that resembled myocarditis occurred when I went to bed (around 10 PM). The symptoms included respiratory difficulties/shortness of breath and severe chest pain especially when lying on my back, and pains in the upper body mostly in both arms. As a result, I wasn't able to sleep until 4 AM when these symptoms started to reduce. However the fatigue and periodic shortness of breath persisted for a couple of more days. I recognized these symptoms are much like the ones I experienced once in 2018, although I was able to get a diagnosis of myocarditis after being tested with ECG and blood tests. During that event the trajectory of serverless and recovery was similar.

Almost immediately after I received my dose, I felt very dizzy and began sweating profusely. My vision became very blurry, and I had trouble breathing. No one came to check and see if I was ok. They just waved me out of the building, being terrified of what was going on and what wanting to leave the facility I drove out into the parking lot for the additional assessment. In the parking lot, I continued panting and sweating, feeling as though I was going to vomit. Again, no one checked on me, and I was too incapacitated to "honk my horn 3 times." After the additional 15 minutes, they waved everyone through to leave, so I left. There was no professional around to speak with at this point anyways. Covered in sweat and dizzy. I drove home to go to bed. When I got home about 10 minutes later, my arm where I received the vaccine was already very sore. I laid in bed and fell asleep and continued sleeping off and on for the rest of the day and night. My shoulder was still sore the following morning when I woke up. As the day progressed my fatigue increased (Sunday was not too bad.) Monday (3.22.21) I felt terrible, (headache, brain-fog, bad back pain, bad knee pain, bad hip pain.) My symptoms have persisted all week. I am unsure as to what to do. I do not have a doctor that I regular see. I am afraid to receive another dose and have even worse reactions/side-effects

I was getting ready for bed (around 2am, early night for me) and suddenly felt dizzy, nauseous, and incredibly hot. I was very stressed about it and it had been six days since the shot, so I just assumed I was either having a heart attack or a really bad panic attack. I did a meditation and chewed a couple aspirin just in case. There was extreme tightness in my chest. Breathing was difficult. The dizziness, nausea, and inability to control my body temperature went away within a couple hours and I managed to sleep. But the chest tightness and difficulty breathing persisted for about 3 or 4 days. I also noticed it hurt more whenever I was sitting upright or forward, and it hurt almost zero when I leaned back or laid down.

Experienced shortness of breath and sharp pain around heart area the night after receiving dose. Was bedridden the following day. I had to travel back on Saturday so I was trying to rest and get better. Pain subsided a little, but the pain started back up again the weekend before Memorial Day holiday. This time the pain was the worst. The pain was a sharp pain around my heart area. My left SCN muscle was also inflamed. I was bedridden the entire weekend. In bed, when I turned left or right when lying down I would feel pain. I was not able to lift my head up to adjust my pillow without feeling sharp pain. I took Ibuprofen at 800 mg every 6 hours based on doctor recommendation. This pain lasted about 3 weeks with it gradually subsiding and now I am feeling better. However, I still feel a little something going on in the region around my heart.

2 days after 2nd COVID vaccine (Pfizer), started to notice random onset heart palpitations and tachycardia, as well as random minor chest pains, and occasionally moderate chest pains. chest pains could be described as a sharp pain or tightness that only lasts a second or two then typically goes away. It is now 6 months later and I am still experiencing heart issues: palpitations, elevated heart rate, fatigue, feeling "winded" when climbing stairs. Elevated heart rate is sometimes as high as 160bpm, even when sitting on the couch relaxing. Marijuana use will occasionally raise heart rate, but not consistently enough to be the cause of tachycardia. When heart rate is elevated, I will sometimes experience anxiety, which can lead to slight "difficulties" breathing (this seems to be caused by the anxiety, and when I notice my heart rate is high, I get nervous and think too much about it and probably focus too much on breathing normally) These symptoms and issues were not present prior to receiving my 2 COVID vaccines

Soon after felt anxiety and scared so I ran to the front of pharmacy to get the pharmacist?s attention for them to call 911. I began feeling weak and started hyperventilating, feeling like I was going to die. Almost felt difficult to gasp for a full breath of air. As I got on the floor due to feeling weak, I began sweating profusely in my face, while at the same time, seeing my sweat drip on the ground like I just ran a full sprint mile. I was begging the pharmacist for some water but she refused to give me water because she thought I would choke. I was able to breathe but hyperventilating made it difficult. A couple mins passed, and I began to try my best to control my breathing by taking deeper breaths. I say about 5 mins, the paramedics arrived, but by then, all the side effects went away. Lastly, I felt the chills and very cold by the time the medics came. I got up on my own accord, went outside in the sun and felt normal again.

Started feeling really anxious and shy of breath about 5 minutes after receiving second shot but I only thought I was nervous from receiving it so I thought nothing of it. Common side effects such as chills, headache and severe drowsiness lasted 2 maybe 3 days but the anxious feeling in my chest is still there. Heart palpitations is what I am having and it?s constant. There have been times at work that I can feel my heart beat in my pant legs, temples, wrists and forehead from ordinary stress that I?ve have no issues handling in the past 4 years. Every 30-60 seconds I have to take a deep breath to catch my breath regardless of what I am doing. Suddenly severe drowsiness. I?m sure there?s more that I?m forgetting.

After 2nd dose of COVID19 vaccine (taken 3 weeks after first dose) I had a feeling of a mild fever/chills and low energy and body aches about 12 hours after the injection. However I also begin getting a lot of pain and tightness around my right rib cage intercostal muscle area and lower back (QL area to Lats). This made it harder to breath and hurt while I laid down to sleep. It also hurt to take a deep breath/cough/laugh etc. This lasted until Thursday night (4/29/21) when the same kind of pain moved over to my left side. The past 2 days it has become quite intense though making it impossible to sleep on my back last night (I had to sit upright to avoid intense pain) and painful to even walk. It still hurts in my left rib cage at rest (feels more like a dull ache and stiff), but intensifies if I try to expand my lungs with breathing or lie down or move in any way. Mainly intercostal area around the rib cage and the back around my lung. Thought I might have to go to the emergency room last night it was so bad.

According to my wife, 10 minutes post shot I had what appeared to be a mild seizure and lost consciousness for 1-2 minutes. Prior to that happening, I told her I felt light headed. She notified personnel while we were in the 15 min wait holding area and when I regained consciousness two EMTs were checking me out. They took my vitals, asked me questions and had me get out of the car and walk around. I was monitored for several minutes. It was recommended I visit a hospital or urgent care if I continued to feel unwell. My wife & I left the vaccine site and decided on the way home to go to the hospital just to ensure everything was all right. We went back home for about 30-60 minutes. During this time my heart rate continued to remain elevated and it felt like I had adrenaline coursing through my system. I attributed the feeling to recovering from passing out, but it did not dissipate. Upon arrival to the ER I began having trouble trying to breathe and chest pain. During the triage EKG it was discovered I was experiencing atrial fibrillation. I was given treatment, fluids and monitored for several hours before being released. Estimated time from receiving shot to being diagnosed with afib was approximately 2.5-3 hours.

A 35-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Right on 21Jan2021 12:00 (at 35 years old) (Batch/Lot Number: EL9263) as 1ST DOSE, SINGLE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing food allergy. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. After receiving the Covid Vaccine on 21Jan2021, the caller has experienced a lot of adverse side effects that he's dealing with now almost 3 and a half months later. He has seen numerous doctors as well as specialists. He has a long list of symptoms that occurred at onset. What he is dealing with now is a swollen neck (onset date 21Jan2021), a sore throat (onset date 21Jan2021), tongue discoloration, and just general fatigue (onset date 21Jan2021) and malaise (onset date 21Jan2021). Prior to the shot he was physically healthy. He was running about 20 miles a week. Then he got the shot and his health declined significantly and he is still recovering. When this occurred, caller weighed 165 pounds, and now he weighs 145 pounds. He lost 20 pounds. These events happened after the first dose of the vaccine. He got his vaccine at around noon on 21Jan2021, and by that evening at around 2000 he had a tightness in his throat, felt like his right ear was plugged up, then had pain on the right side of his neck. It all coincided with the same side as the vaccine, which he had in his right arm. He also experienced some pretty severe chills. His throat still feels swollen, probably because of his swollen lymph nodes. Some days it is better and some days it is worse. It is causing constant pressure on his neck. He is not sure if he noticed the swollen lymph nodes the same day as the shot or shortly after.Patient does not currently have neck pain. He should probably mention it started probably a few weeks after the onset of his symptoms. He does not know when it went away. He was getting swollen lymph nodes on his left side as well, and his throat became sore on the left side as well. It went away maybe a few weeks ago. He is not sure when the swollen lymph nodes or the sore throat started. His right ear was plugged and then it affected his left ear and it got plugged up as well. It was to the point where he could barely hear. It was almost like an ear infection when it is completely plugged and there is pressure behind the ear drum. 2 weeks after his right side it started on the left side. It has subsided by this time, but it has not completely gone away, but it is not as bad. Patietnt had the chills for 3 weeks, but they weren't as severe as the first night. He was just freezing cold and could not get warm. After that night he was still having issues feeling warm and had to keep his bedroom at like 80 degrees constantly. It probably continued for about a month. He doesn't have chills now, however it evolved into more of a heat intolerance. Whenever he feels to warm he feels more tired and not well overall. It is really odd. It is more heat intolerance he feels is going on. After the first few months it started then he had the opposite. He had a problem getting warm, then after the first month he didn't tolerate heat too well. He is not sure when the tongue discoloration first started, but he noticed it about a month and a half ago. The general fatigue and malaise started at the beginning with everything else. He did not have the second dose of the vaccine. Caller believes the doctors ran a CBC. He had a complete panel done a few times and nothing concerning presented or stood out to the doctors. They did an ultrasound on the left side of his abdomen to make sure he had no spleen enlargement, and that came back normal. They ran thyroid panels and those came back normal. One thing that came back abnormal that explains more of this but the timing is odd with the vaccine is he came back positive for Mono. He started seeing an ENT specialist, and he believes that getting the vaccine could have caused his immune system to freak out considering his history with allergies. It could have caused the Epstein Mono virus already present to become reactivated. That was kind of his theory on why this could have occurred. All the events caused a visit to Emergency Room. He went to the ER about a week, exactly a week after he had the vaccine that day. He was having trouble swallowing (onset date 28Jan2021) as well as his breathing was becoming a concern (onset date 28Jan2021) for him. He also was just having what felt like anxiety-like symptoms (onset date 28Jan2021), and he has no history of anxiety. If he got the vaccine on 21Jan2021 then this happened around 28Jan2021. He did have another ER visit about a week after that one as well. He started to have severe symptoms similar to the first time he went. He is still having a little bit of an issue swallowing. He attributes that to the swelling in his lymph nodes and neck possibly affecting that. His breathing he does not have problems with so much now. He has more of a constant discomfort in his neck, though it is not affecting his breathing at this point. As far as general anxiety he still has that and it does cause issues. It is causing him to not sleep as a result. His swallowing is better. His breathing was the most severe of the symptoms. Maybe after the first month it began to become less of an issue. He couldn't say exactly when it went away. It probably went away as a result of the swelling subsiding. To be honest he is not sure. Doctors put the caller on numerous medications as well as a medicine that he continued with. He doesn't know if his anxiety is better as a result of the medicine helping or if it would be the same if he went off of it. He is not sure. He has had trouble sleeping since this all began. It has been a little better. It could be a result of the medicine that helped. He is really unsure if he was not on the medicine how it would be. Patient visited a Physician Office for all events.No other vaccinations within four weeks prior to the first administration date of the suspect vaccine. No AE(s) following prior vaccinations. The outcome of the events Throat tightness,Sensation of block in ear,Swallowing difficult,Anxiety, Sleep difficult,Hearing reduced was recovering; chills,Swollen lymph nodes,Neck pain,Sore throat was recovered; Tongue discoloration, heat intolerance,Fatigue,Malaise was not recovered; other events was unknown.

Three - four hours after my second dose I began to feel dizzy, fluttering in my chest, and short of breath. I sat down to try to catch my breath and decided to put my heart rate monitor on (I use it when I run). My heart rate would dip into the 40s when I normally have a resting heart rate in the mid 60s. After 30 minutes of sitting and the symptoms getting progressively worse, I decided to go to the emergency room. On the way over I started feeling weak and increasingly short of breath. These symptoms lasted for approximately 8 hours. Since the episode I have noticed periodic episodes of shortness of breath and chest fluttering.

My first COVID19 Pfizer vaccine shot was on 4/05/21. My second was 3 weeks later on 4/26/21. About 30 hours after my second vaccine on 4/27/21 I started to notice tightness around my lungs/rib cage in the intercostal muscle area. For the next few days the pain increased and I had shortness of breath as well. After a few nights I couldn't lie down to sleep because of this pain so I had to sit upright to sleep. On 5/3/21 I went to the doctor at hospital where I was examined and had a lung X-ray as well as a COVID PCR test (it was negative). The PA diagnosed me with "Pneumonia" and I was given antibiotics (cefuroxime and azithromycin) to take for 6-7 days. I started feeling a little better by 5/6/21 and actually reported here on VAERS with my diagnosis of suspected Pneumonia. On 5/17/21 I had another lung x-ray at hospital and was told my lungs were looking more clear. However, for the next 2 weeks I felt more tired and my poor breathing, a cough with bloody mucus, and more chest/rib cage area pain developed. Despite being a professional runner it became hard to walk up a flight of stairs without breathing really hard and feeling light-headed. On 5/30/21 I woke up with fairly intense chest pain just under my heart. I was taken to the ER at second Hospital and got a CT scan with contrast that showed a bilateral Pulmonary Embolism with infract. An ultra sound of my heart (normal) and blood panels were performed as well as multiple EKGs. I was given a stomach injection of Lovenox also. That afternoon I was transferred to third Hospital. for overnight monitoring with more EKGs and Lovenox injections. Prescribed blood thinner Pradaxa for 3 months with no known cause of clots that caused this Pulmonary Embolism. Kidney test and Heart appeared normal. Still waiting on genetic testing. Lung infract has caused lasting chest pain and my breathing has yet to return back to normal.

About one minute following vaccine administration, the patient said he was going to pass out. He lost consciousness but was making snorting/snoring noises and was having muscle contractions that left him rolling around in his chair. This lasted about 2 minutes. He then turned very red and it appeared that he wasn't breathing. I removed his facemask and yelled his name/patted his chest and he began to regain consciousness. He sat for several minutes and said he felt fine.

I started having cramps in my belly after the 1st dosage that carried over to the 2nd dosage. I started having panic attacks and shakiness in my arms along with lose of weight (no appetite whatsoever). It has been like that every since and then the insomnia following the 2nd dosage and I had a feeling of bloating after I ate anything, became restless, sweating a lot, vision was blurry, and noticeable changes in my stool (became yellowish). I been gasping for air after any physical activity or eating. I also noticed that the mucus is yellowish in my throat and tongue. I also experience muscle cramps when attempting to fall asleep which causes me to wake up instantly (also happens when I eat...legs and arms start twitching). If I try to swallow, the yellowish mucus wakes me up while I am trying to sleep. The symptoms started gradually and I didn't have anything of them prior to taking either dosage of the vaccine. The emergency medical team did some tests upon arriving at my home to see if I needed to be transported to the hospital (was not necessary since my heart was working fine).

24 hours after vaccine I started feeling icky and bad. I was working and thought I was going to pass out so I went home, and I tried calling the hospital, but they said they couldn't recommend if I should go in or not. A week after that every joint in my body was killing me. I had a little bit of breathing issues probably about a week after. Chest tightness, not being able to get a full breath. 48-72 hours after that my knuckles and joints were hurting. 48 hours after that the tightness in chest started and the trouble breathing. I did not go to an urgent care. My brain just feels like it shut off a little bit and I don't know if that's just something in my head or not.

My previously healthy brother received the Pfizer vaccine (1st dose) and 4 days after he was hospitalized with shortness of breath, heart failure, blood clots in his arm, lungs and leg along with a stroke and many medical conditions kept arising as he was hospitalized. He was in the CICU for a week and a half. Unfortunately, my brother passed away from the Pfizer vaccine. Until his last day the doctors still "didn't know" what was wrong with him. A lot happened during his hospital stay, but this is just a brief statement. They have been keeping his medical records from me. They tested him repeatedly there from covid and he wa salways negative. They had no other explanation to what was happening and all along they wanted it to be COVID-19 and were so quick to say it was not the vaccine.

DX: Myocarditis Onset of S/S 06/02/2021 S/S:Dyspnea on exertion, Fever/chills,Tachypnea Found to have acute basilar ischemic stroke, taken for emergent thrombectomy, but experienced progressive edema and ultimately tonsillar herniation. 35 year old man with medical history notable for likely untreated hypertension and tobacco use disorder who presented with reported fever, confusion, shortness of breath, and facial swelling, initially treated for allergic reaction/angioedema without effect, progressed to respiratory failure, found to have acute basilar ischemic stroke, taken for emergent thrombectomy, but experienced progressive edema and ultimately tonsillar herniation resulting in death. Regarding cardiac picture, patient with abnormal ECG, mildly reduced EF on echo (though could be due to untreated hypertension or to respiratory failure/critical illness), borderline troponin (need to check reference range). ED note initially mentions concern for myocarditis due to vaccine causing heart failure and subsequent respiratory failure, but appears this piece was written prior to MRI showing basilar stroke. Death note has myocarditis listed as a cause of death (among many), though a bit unclear if this was intentionally listed or just reflects a list of all hospital problems. Also had a CT of his head which showed scattered foci of gas within intraorbital soft tissues along with mild proptosis; unclear etiology for this (perhaps a fall with facial injuries prior to arriving at hospital?) Awaiting additional physician notes/imaging reports.

Had severe reaction to the vaccine not necessarily adverse events but still wanted to report it. I am a physician who likely had contracted COVID in 04/2020 and has been suffering long COVID sx since. No significant reaction to dose 1 of the Pfizer vaccine other than sore arm. 2nd dose within 12 hours had severe rigors, severe chills, then fever to 39.6 the first night (took 1 dose of tylenol and 1 of advil after), temp of 38-39 the next 12 hours, and then the 2nd night had a fever high of 41.4 degrees (took another tylenol). Had sweats the entire night after and defervesced after. Day 3-5 mostly involve myalgia, nausea, anorexia, malaise, chills, HA, and mild SOB. Took about 1 week to "recover" to my long COVID baseline after the 2nd dose of vaccine. Still having a bit worse SOB now compared to prior to 2nd dose but unsure if it has to do with the vaccine at this point. Had tested for positive anti-spike protein ab (likely from the 1st dose) the morning of my 2nd dose of vaccine.

Experienced chest pain, neck pain, general muscle pain, joint pain, some abdominal pain, headaches, fatigue, some shortness of breath, lightheadedness, some vision change in left eye, severe heartburn flare up, nausea, digestive issues (urgent, but small stools), increased heartrate, irregular tachycardia responses and heart palpitations. The pain and heartburn were treated with over the counter medications - ibuprophen, Tylenol, Pepcid and Prilosec at advice of my primary care doctor. Most all of the symptoms resolved after about two weeks past vaccine except my heartrate/palpitations and heartburn. My primary care doctor prescribed Protonix to help with the heartburn. Three and half weeks past vaccine I visited the ER thinking I was having a heart attack.

A 36-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; Lot Number was unclear and reported as either ER8727 or ED8727), via an unspecified route of administration, on 23Mar2021, at a single dose, for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included asthma. The patient's concomitant medication included an unspecified inhaler. The patient was healthy. He has asthma, but other than that he has no health issues. He has never been hospitalized. The patient was calling to share his side effects after receiving the vaccine. He took the vaccine because it has been recommended. Most importantly, he took it for his elderly parents. He does not want to hurt them. He wants to help the community. The pharmacist told him he needed to call and report, so he googled Pfizer's phone number. On Tuesday (23Mar2021), the patient received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. At first, he felt nothing. The patient's head felt a little dizzy (clarifies that it is a heavy feeling) and had a little bit of arm soreness at night (resolved about a day and a half later), but he could not complain. When the patient had the first dose, he experienced headache and sore arm the night on 23Mar2021. After the first dose, his head felt nothing like the day he went to the emergency room. He would say it was maybe 10% of the day he went to the emergency room. The next day (24Mar2021) in the morning, the patient experienced heavy sweating (sweating all over his body), feeling hot, headache, 99.9 degrees (also reported as 9.8) body temperature, and more pain on the arm. On the morning of 24Mar2021, the patient's head felt heavier. He heard people get chills, he did not get chills. He checked his temperature and it was 99.9 degrees. The patient considers that a pre fever, anything over 100 degrees is a fever to him. Sweating all over his body has gotten better. But it comes back from time to time, along with tingling all over his body (unspecified date). His body tingles, he sweats a little bit and then it goes away. His body tingling and sweating go back to back. Time passed by two days and nothing. On the sixth day (29Mar2021), the patient's mother had a doctor's appointment. After the patient got home from taking his mother to the doctor, he started sweating all over his body (started sweating again). His head was heavy (head is a bit heavy again), but not painful. It is heavy in the front side of his head, not in the back. It (head) is only a little bit of pain. He feels like his brain is going to come out of the front of his head. He started throwing up as soon as he got home. He got vertigo. He was running through the house, trying to make it to the bathroom and he fell three times (before he went to the emergency room). His head was spinning, and he could not open his eyes. The patient clarified that he could open up his eyes, but he did not want too. It looked like the building was going up and down. On 29Mar2021, the patient's face was pale yellowish, feel like going to pass out, time to time nausea and vomiting, vertigo, vision was spinning, tingling sensation, no control to his body like he was going to faint, vomited a total of 3 times, felt there is pinching on left side of his chest (the left side of his chest was pinching in the emergency room), and frontal headache. He felt like everything around him was spinning. The patient took meclizine for vertigo and medication for vomiting. The patient's father has vertigo, so his father gave him some meclizine for his vertigo. The patient also took ondansetron (ZOFRAN). The patient's family called the hotline and took him to the emergency room (ER). He has not fell again. He vomited three times, and then another in the ambulance, for a total of four times. When he got to the hospital, they started treating him. When he went to the emergency room, he did not open his eyes, and was talking with his eyes closed. All of his symptoms happened at the same time, when he came home from his mother's doctor appointment. The doctor at the emergency room told him that his electrolytes were out of whack, and that his phosphorus level was too low. They gave him some sodium sulfate right away. The doctor recommended that he stay overnight. The patient did not want to stay overnight because his parents are elderly, and he takes care of them. The doctor told him since he was not willing to stay, to go home and drink a lot of water. Per laboratory works done on 29Mar2021, the patient's phosphorous and electrolytes were too low, so they gave him saline and sodium phosphate for management. Also, the patient had abdominal and heart X-ray and computerized tomography (CT) scan done and everything came normal. Also, both X-rays came back clear. The patient had no diarrhea. Heaviness of head started feeling better after his emergency room visit on 29Mar2021. Around 02Apr2021 or 03Apr2021 is whenever it started feeling better. It comes back, and he gets scared. On 30Mar2021, the patient was almost improving and was advised to drink lots of fluids. Every now and then patient was feeling weak and head is hurting, hands are shaking on 30Mar2021. Every single day, he feels dizzy, weak and tingles all over his body. When the patient went to the emergency room, the doctor could not tell him what caused his symptoms. The doctor told him that it could possibly be because of the vaccine. He has never felt like this in his life. He has never fell in his life. He felt hopeless and was crying. He was worried about his elderly parents, and who would take care of them. The patient's second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is due 13Apr2021. He is debating on whether to take it or not. He cannot afford to take it if it is going to make him feel worse. He has read that the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine makes people feel worse. He is scared. He is asking if he should get the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Within one week (unspecified date), he may have lost weight. The patient has to use his inhaler more now as he has a wheezing sound whenever he breathes. He has been using his inhaler more often, whenever he starts wheezing. He always feels like his whole body is tingling. He has no energy. He has only visited this doctor once. His long-term primary care physician is not practicing anymore, he thinks that he may have lost his license. It is hard for him to get an appointment with his primary care doctor since the pandemic. The patient is going to try to see his doctor through tele health. The emergency room doctor recommended that he follow up with a neurologist. The patient was advised to go to a neurologist. The patient reported these symptoms as side effects and asked how long the symptoms last. At the time of reporting, the patient currently still has that nausea and vomiting feeling, but it is better; and he feels heavy (pertaining to vertigo). If he starts to get vertigo again, he knows he will throw up. He can feel whenever the vertigo is coming, he begins to feel like the floor is moving. He can be standing still quietly, and the floor will start moving. The pharmacist told him to call Pfizer and share what happened to him. Since he took the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, he spoke to the pharmacist. He was thinking of taking another company's vaccine of one shot. But they did not offer it in his area. The patient read that the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine gives him about 50-60% immunity. The patient was asking if he can take the other company's vaccine. The patient should have taken the other company's vaccine because it would have been one shot and done. He is nervous about taking the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. He wishes he would have taken the other company's one shot because then he would not have to worry about having symptoms again. The patient's father received his second vaccine today. He asked the pharmacist there the same questions. He is still confused about if he is going to take the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. He cannot explain his symptoms. He can handle pain, but he cannot handle, vertigo, throwing up, and feeling numb (as reported; unspecified date). He feels like he had symptoms that people 90 and older should have. He kept falling. The patient further asked if he could take another company's COVID-19 vaccine as his second dose. Also, if it was okay if he was scheduled to get the second dose 4 weeks after the first dose. Lastly, if the company thinks that he is eligible for the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine despite these symptoms. The patient recovered from "Arm soreness; sore arm" on 25Mar2021; and from "Fell three times" on 29Mar2021. The patient was recovering from "Heavy sweating (sweating all over his body)", "Head felt heavier; head was heavy in the front side of his head, not in the back", "Throwing up; vomiting", and "Nausea". The outcome of the remaining events was unknown. Information about lot number and expiration date for the suspect product will be requested in follow-up attempts.

I went to bed around 10pm feeling very cold an shivering. I was able to fall asleep, but then I woke up at 2am feeling very thirsty and experiencing intense nausea. I got out of bed to get some water. When I exited the room the nausea intensified so I knelt on the floor to wait until it passed. It didn't really pass so I stood up to try and get back to the bed. After a few steps I blacked out and fell to the floor. I was only unconscious for a few seconds, as confirmed by my wife who heard me fall. When I came to, I was lying face down and still experiencing intense nausea. I was also very hot and sweating, and very thirsty. I laid with my eyes closed an breathing very heavily to suppress the urge to vomit for a minute or two. When the urge to vomit began to subside I took a few sips of water while still lying on the ground. After another minute or two I was able to get up and get back into bed. The extreme nausea subsided after a few more minutes and I was able to drink more water. I went back to sleep after that. I woke up in the morning around 7am. I felt a little "off" for most of the day: slightly weak, a mild headache, with some difficulty focusing. But since then I have felt normal. I didn't seek medical attention or take any medication. I have experienced Vasovagel Syncope as a child so I expect that I am more susceptible to fainting like in this case.

4 days after the first shot I was feeling very very dizzy. My ears felt full enough that I thought maybe they were just full of wax. I bought an over the counter ear cleaning kit. That didn't relieve any symptoms. I never get headaches, but a couple days later the front top of my head was throbbing. The area just above my forehead. It was not sinus pressure, my face didn't feel any pressure or pain. My throat also felt like I was being slightly choked. Not my airway, but just my jugulars. It began in the evenings. It would feel like I had been hanging upside down for a while. My head felt full of blood, like it was going to pop, like my eyes were bugging out. By a week to 10 days later, my upper arms felt weak, my toes were tingling, and my heart would flutter for just a few seconds occasionally. I was still dizzy, still felt like I was choking, except I was feeling this way all the time now. The symptoms only seemed to be staying the same or getting worse. I have NEVER gone to the doctor on my own in my life to get something checked, but this had me disconcerted enough to check in and see if I should get my second shot at all. My appointment was to see my doctor was the morning of the same day I was scheduled to get my second Pfizer shot. My doctor had not heard of these symptoms being associated with the Pfizer shot and chalked my symptoms up to stress. I am not a stressful person and very much err on the side of "waiting to see what happens" if I feel sick. I never feel sick. But I accepted the explanation and took the second shot that day anyway. It should be noted that the second shot made my left armpit swell up quite a bit. I did feel dizzy again, but not nearly as much. The other symptoms seemed to not be as bad either.

The patient was driving at that time, and was unable to control his arms, which resulted in his vehicle leaving the roadway. He was able to bring the vehicle to a stop before crashing. Since then, his symptoms have gradually improved, although they have not completely resolved. The characteristics are identical to the events that led to his previous admission.

Around 2 weeks after receiving the first vaccine dose, I woke in the middle of the night gasping for air. My heart was racing and I was so weak that I could barely sit up. The following day I could not get out of bed. I also had an intense headache, which is unusual for me since I never get headaches. On the 3rd day I developed dizziness/vertigo. Since those events occurred, I've been dizzy 24/7 and had about 25-50% of my normal energy. I cannot drive, I cannot work, I cannot many of my normal daily activities. This has been devastating. It has been over 3 weeks now with these symptoms, and I will probably lose my job this week. I don't know where to turn. There should have been a safety net for these things.

Was fine before the COVID19 vaccine shot. After 15 minutes of observation, I experienced a runny nose which I was told was fine. About an hour later, I experienced slight swelling under my left eye and cheek. A few minutes after, my throat began to have a scratchy feeling and a slight wheezing which was concerning. As soon as I experienced this feeling, I took one Benadryl immediately. After about a half an hour, the swelling under my eye and cheek gradually went down, my runny nose stopped after a few minutes , and my throat itching stopped after about 15 to 20 minutes. I felt fine afterwards.

At approximately 6pm I experienced chest tightening and pain above my heart. When taking deep breaths the pain became more sharp. The pain lasted about 3 days, gradually decreasing each day. At the time I attributed it to stress, as the day and recently I have experienced stress at work. I did not seek medical attention as it improved over time, and has not returned. I decided to report when hearing about the heart inflammation reports, and this was about 1.5 weeks after my 2nd dose. Symptoms do overlap with stress (what I originally attributed to) and what I have read are symptoms of hear inflammation. My adverse events that followed my 2nd vaccine (minor fever, aches, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, etc) only onset about 20 hours post vaccine, and lingered longer than most people that I know.
