Patient with PMH of depression and GERD who presented 1/8 with constipation, abdominal discomfort and worsening dyspnea. Symptoms began around 12/29. COVID vaccine 12/19. Previously quite active, marathon runner, gained some weight over last couple years but was still in good enough shape to complete 10K in New Orleans in early February. In late February, had a flu-like illness, as did one of his friends from church. 2020 was hard on him - weight gain, decreased activity, stress, overall deconditioning. No issues apart from sore arm after COVID vaccine 12/19 but then starting getting abdominal fullness/discomfort around 12/29, which steadily worsened, also develop worsening dyspnea on slight exertion. No known sick contacts.. Work-up notable for pericardial effusion, pleural effusions. Echo with severe diffuse LV hypokinesis, concern raised for myocarditis. COVID PCR negative, serology negative. RVP negative. . Concern raised that COVID vaccine may have played a role in myocarditis. He was found to have the following conditions Acute heart failure with reduced EF NYHA FC II, non-ischemic cardiomyopathy. Myocarditis appears subacute per MRI hypertension obesity small pericardial effusion- asysmptomatic no pericarditis suspected obstructive sleep apnea. .Started on the following medications. Continue Carvedilol 12.5mg BID, Farxiga 5mg daily, Digoxin 0.125mg daily, Entresto 97-103mg BID, and Spironolactone 25mg daily. Per MD note. While it remains uncertain, team is doubtful COVID vaccine played a role in his cardiac issues. Given the MRI findings are not acute, more likely that the cardiac insult occurred weeks to months ago - potentially in the setting of the February 2020 illness. Perhaps his "deconditioning" in 2020 was related to worsening cardiac function. Nevertheless, will hold on 2nd COVID vaccine dose given absence of a clear explanation for his myocarditis. conversation with team will continue to determine if candidate for second covid vaccine. If consensus is that myocarditis pre-dated vaccine, might be able to proceed with dose 2 of vaccine.

Decision to Admit Based On 1446 Based on his symptoms and presentation presumptive acute anaphylaxis to component of the Pfizer Covid vaccine. We will begin treatment with 0.3 mg epinephrine IM once as well as dexamethasone, famotidine, diphenhydramine IV. We will continue to monitor with cardiac telemetry and pulse oximetry. He does have slight wheezing but this may be related to his chronic COPD. No respiratory distress at this time, but his symptoms seem to have been mildly progressive over the past hour (per his report). I believe inclusion of the epi to be prudent based on his presentation. Additionally, I will inform the vaccination clinic of this reaction. he agrees pt will benefit from continued monitoring and repeated IV antihistamine and IV steroid treatment. Pt will need IVFluid for hydration as well. Recheck: ? Recheck Recheck 1, Recheck 2, Recheck 3 ? Time 14:55 ? Recheck patient stable patient improving with treatment ? Comments He is improving.

Phizer shot 1 of 2 in the left arm on Thursday 5/6. I arrived home 45 minutes after the shot was administered and went to the bedroom as my heart rate continued increasing until it was racing non-stop. As my rate increased, so did my breathing until it became rapid and shallow. It is difficult to describe how fast my heart was beating. The rapid heart rate and shallow breathing reminded me of how my breathing changed when I summited a 5800-meter volcano and there was insufficient oxygen near the peak. As my pulse increased I became weak and fell asleep, or fell unconscious. I awoke at 11:00 PM and my breathing was normal however my heart continued racing for an additional hour until midnight. I have experienced no other side effects except heart rate and breathing.

Patient states he gets relief or a more open passageway and the coughing reflex or coughing bouts are less, when he gets the tightness of the throat or the inflammation he sort of goes into coughing.

I was awoken from sleeping on the morning of Good Friday at 4:00 am. i had a very sharp pain at the front of my left shoulder that went about halfway down my left arm. Additionally, I couldn't breath - it was very painful to attempt to fully fill my lungs. This condition lasted for about 45 minutes as I tried changing positions in bed to make the pain change (either worse or less) but it was consistent and would not go away. At that time my wife and I thought I may have been having a heart attack so we went to the Emergency Room.

Blood pressure went up to 160; My heart rate went up to 130/Rapid heart rate; disorienting; unable to eat; post-nasal drip 'dripping' into my lungs; Occasional shortness of breath; Dizzy; Unable to eat and actually zero desire to eat; Sweating/ sleep sweat; sleeping off and on; Was just physically ill/ malaise; Chills; Fever; Extremely tired/ general fatigue; I throw up the water I have been drinking all day; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 40-years-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot number: unknown) via an unspecified route of administration on 13Apr2021 at 08:00 (at the age of 40-years-old) as single for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history was not reported. Concomitant medication included albuterol [salbutamol] (ALBUTEROL [SALBUTAMOL]). The patient stated that it was just a standard rescue inhaler 100 mcg. The patient was vaccinated on 13Apr2021 at 08:00 and within 5 minutes his blood pressure went up to 160 and heart rate went up to 130, so they called paramedics over, who were already on site and did pulse check and blood pressure check until they knew what heart rate, blood pressure and oxygenated blood was. They did not allow him to leave for an hour because it was so highly elevated, he felt so dizzy and very disorienting. His friend dropped him home because he could not drive, there was no way he could drive. After an hour the blood pressure got back down to 140 and heart rate was still about 120, it was lower, so he went home and immediately lay down and rest the entire day. He was just physically ill and experienced chills, fever, sleep sweat, extremely tired, strangely no arm soreness at all. He got every other possible side effect and that lasted until 01:30 in the morning, after he throw up, he was finally able to get some sleep. He took rest the entire day, sleeping off and on, unable to eat and actually zero desire to eat, rapid heart rate, sweating, and occasional shortness of breath. He used the rescue inhaler as treatment, that was probably because he laid on his back for so long and also probably just post-nasal drip into lungs. At 01:30 in the morning, he throw up the water he had drank all day and felt a bit better. It was probably because he did not eat all day. He slept until noon and didn't went to work because he felt malaise, general fatigue, his arm didn't hurt. He didn't feel great on the day of reporting, but it was not like the previous day. He had to go to the emergency room, as his mom kept pushing him to go and he was like not going. He had not eaten anything on the day of reporting, so he was looking for something to (incomplete sentence). The patient took 1 gm of Tylenol (over the course of maybe 14 hours) on 13Apr2021 and was advised not to take Advil for whatever reason. The patient underwent blood volume the previous month which was normal and no STDs. He was negative for COVID. That's why he felt okay with vaccine and then before that he did a PCR test which was also negative. The patient have been in 11 countries in the previous year and might have undergone 20 PCR test. He was kind of scared taking the second shot. The outcome of all the events was unknown. No follow-up attempts are possible; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

I felt faint about 20 minutes after I took the first vaccine shot on 4/1/2021. I felt like I had heart palpitations, then a tingling feeling in my left arm. After the second shot, I felt like my balance was off if I laid down or looked down and then pulled my head up. That went away after the first day. Starting the following day, I had some chest pain over my heart, and at times, I would have a burning sensation in my heart. At times, I also felt a tingling down my left arm (sometimes out of nowhere). I would be very short of breath. These symptoms were on and off for the first two weeks after I took my shot. They have since completely gone away.

Short-term (24-36 hours after both shots): Extreme fatigue, muscle pain/soreness, headache, fever, nausea. Worst I've ever felt in my adult life, like my whole body was rebelling against me. Long-term (for roughly 10 days after both shots): Serious shortness of breath, irregular and very high heartbeat, extreme fatigue. Couldn't do any physical activity without immediately becoming out of breath (normally very healthy and active). Heart would race unpredictably, reaching 120 bpm (normal resting for me is 60-70). General malaise. Felt more like 80 years old than 40. Was unable to do normal physical activity and work for weeks. Feeling better overall, but still sometimes feel like I get tired unusually easily and heart behaves strangely now and then.

After about 15 Minutes after the injection, My Hands and Feet broke into a sweat, about 1 minute after that the top of my head started to tingle ( like pins and needles) after about another minute it felt like I had to keep breathing on purpose. ( what I mean by that is I was aware of my breathing and had to knowingly take breaths it was like I had been under water and just come up for air) I don't remember the exact time maybe another minute or so, my heart started to race. This All went on for about 45 Minutes. When this first happened the Pharmacist told me that what was happening was common with vaccinations and had nothing to do with the covid 19 vaccination, I asked for the nurse that had provided the vaccine to me and was told she went to lunch. So there was no healthcare professional there to help me. The pharmacist just had me sit in a chair and told me to sit there until I felt better. This happened for both injections. I have never experienced this type of reaction with any other vaccine in my life.

Approximately seven days following second dose of Pfizer COVID vaccine, I began experiencing heart palpitations, elevated heart rate, chest pressure, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, and dizziness. Multiple "episodes" each day would occur without warning, did not relate to physical activity, or any other stimulus - would just happen throughout the day, often multiple times per hour. Even to this day, more than 90 days following the second dose of Pfizer, there are multiple times each day when I feel chest pressure, heart palpitations, and slight shortness of breath. It is not as common, or as severe as it was early on, but some symptoms remain.

The 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine was injected on May 3rd, 2021 at a clinic. Minor arm ache, fatigue, fever/chills felt for approx. ~1day post vaccination and then felt back to normal. Around day 3 post vaccination felt sudden, sharp, stabbing pain within chest cavity which forced me to take shallow, rapid breaths to avoid triggering pain. Lasted a few minutes before subsiding. Following day or so pain returned as a dull, diffused pain and was felt intermittently for several weeks. Generally I run fairly often for fitness, however activity level was reduced due the ongoing chest pain. Wanted to resume normal activity levels, but decided to consult a Doctor for peace of mind due to pain taking so long to resolve. Scheduled virtual appointment (06/24/21) who advised an ER visit due to it being a potentially risky chest issue, and the fact that they could run the appropriate tests to diagnose it relatively quickly. Walked over to a nearby ER that afternoon and was hospitalized for 1 night, who diagnosed an "Unprovoked VTE" with a "Pulmonary Embolism" in Right lung. Was treated with Lovenox injections at hospital and currently taking Eliquis medication. As a side note: my brother (43yrs old) who lives in another country, was administered the 1st dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine on 05/24/2021 and subsequently fell ill, went to the ER twice and was eventually diagnosed with VTE/Bilateral PE. He is also currently taking Eliquis medication.

I experienced similar symptoms the day before the first vaccine - (Just the pain in the chest- like something sticking in my chest. More severe stuff was experienced after the second vaccine. After second vaccine, I had pain in my chest. I had a dull ache - like a broom stick stuck in chest - sometimes front and sometimes back and sometimes both. Goes up my spine into my neck sometimes. Sometimes it comes with shortness of breath. One point when it went down my left arm and into my hands. Dull pain. I have gone to medical center - Urgent Care twice and two different doctors and they haven't found anything yet. I woke up gasping for air - one time last weekend. That lasted for two hours - I was only getting 50% of breath when I breathed in. Today I woke up at 6 am (two hours earlier for me) and again had shortness of breath. The doctors have no idea what is going on. I have never had anything like this before. I'm not particularly stressed so I don't think it's anxiety like one doctor suggested. It's very physical and disturbing so I doubt it's anxiety. Muscular - Skeletal relaxant to take - and that didn't help and I stopped taking it because it didn't feel good to stay on it.

On Saturday July 3rd I noticed tightness in my chest, lightheadedness, and ringing in my ears. On Sunday, July 4th, I still had the lightheadedness, tightness in my chest, rapid heartbeat, and it was more difficult to breath unless I was sitting a certain way. On Monday, July 5th I had severe chest pain, difficulty breathing, fluttering and pounding heart, when I took a deep breath I would feel my heart pounding but at a much slower rate and then it would go back to normal beats, severe ringing in the ears, extreme tiredness. This lasted for about 1.5 hours and I went back to bed and when I awoke 4 hours later my heart seemed to beat fine. Chest pain lightened up a bit, but breathing is still difficult. I?m very healthy and have not had any health issues. The heart issue this morning was so bad that I?m not sure if I should get the second dose. If things worsen, I will contact my doctor. I?m hoping that it goes away soon and this will be alleviated on its own, but I?m really worried about getting the second dose even though I want it.

About 3 minutes after receiving the shot, I became dizzy. After 15 minutes, I was still dizzy. I had a little shortness of breath and it felt like my heart was beating faster but this only lasted a few minutes. They had me wait an additional 10 minutes and the dizziness was better but not gone completely. I drove myself home and tried to work from home but was feeling confused. I took the rest of the day off. The next day (yesterday) I woke up exhausted. I took a sick day and slept until noon, which was about 14 hours in total. When I woke up, I felt okay but had no appetite and did not get out of bed for 5 hours. When I finally got up, I still felt dizzy. I ate dinner, watched some TV and went to bed. I woke up this morning without the fatigue but started to feel dizzy in the shower to the point where I almost lost by balance twice. I'm trying to work from home today but feel very dizzy and confused. I couldn't remember my office's phone number. I'm sweating but my temperature is 97.5.

On this run,; which was at about 75% of my normal pace, my lungs felt very heavy with very labored breathing, having to stop and catch my breath periodically. I eventually had to stop at mile 3.

30-35 minutes after injection, while I was driving home, I felt some minor difficulty swallowing., but no impediment to breathing or speaking. I rerouted to a plaza with a grocery store and urgent care clinic, and bought some Benadryl and took it at about 2:55PM. I waited 20 minutes in the parking lot before deciding I was safe to drive home. When I read about the possibility of a biphasic reaction, where my throat could close up again later, I went to a Clinic (5:40PM walk-in appointment with NP), and they could not treat me, and advised me to go to the Emergency Room. I initially decided to just go home, but went to the Emergency Room out of an abundance of caution at around 7PM. Dr. gave me a prescription for an epi pen and prednisone, just in case symptoms worsened. They did not, and I did not use either drug. The throat swelling started around 2:45PM and worsened for about half an hour. It remained steady (no airway constriction, no difficulty taking pills or drinking water) without getting worse, and started to subside around 5PM. By the time I woke up this morning (3/31), I don't think there is any lingering swelling. I can feel a very slight lump in my throat, but I can't tell if that is a very small amount of residual swelling or just hyper-vigilance based on yesterday's experience. Note: This swelling feeling is identical to my memory of what I felt when I was diagnosed as allergic to penicillin in 2000 or 2001. Back then, the only "treatment" was to immediately stop taking penicillin (and to never take it again), based on a phone call with my doctor's office. I did have a strong immune response after that (102° fever, chills, fatigue, muscle pain), but I don't consider that an adverse reaction. This report is focused on what appeared to be a mild anaphylactic reaction.

1 minute after vaccine injection I experienced a tightening of my throat. It was very uncomfortable and made it difficult to swallow and felt like a "lump in my throat". I asked an onsite nurse if this was a common reaction, and she offered medical attention. I denied it because it was not getting worse. She gave me a bottle of water and it seemed to help it a bit while drinking. But, quickly returned after water was swallowed. I was monitored for 30 minutes as recommended. The tightness remained for 1 hour post vaccine injection and disappeared as quickly as it started. I fear the second dose may be worse.

Pt was found in severe distress in the bathroom by his wife. He couldn't walk or stand, complained of being dizzy with slurred speech and was throwing up a lot. 911 was immediately called. The EMTs during their assessment said his BP was normal but when he was asked his name, he started saying the alphabet"ABC... XYZ". He was transported by ambulance to ER. Cat scan showed he had a bleed on the brain. The doctors told us it was because he had very high blood pressure, however where the bleed was, they said he wouldn't need surgery and that the body would reabsorb it over time. He was admitted to the ICU and has been there ever since. Several days later, he started having difficulty breathing and they discovered several blood clots in his right leg that had broken off into his heart and lungs. He had emergency surgery to remove the clots in his heart (approximately 10) and was given heparin in small doses over an 8 hour period so that it wouldn't cause the bleed in his brain to increase. The doctor should fill in the rest.

About six hours after receiving my shot, my arm became extremely sore, as to be expected. Circa 9pm I began to have significant trouble breathing, experienced acute pain in my abdomen, and began to hear ringing in my ears combined with feeling like I was going to pass out. I didn?t feel dizzy, rather I started getting tunnel vision that blocked out more of my field of view as the ringing increased. Circa 11pm, I lost consciousness while trying to move and collapsed on the floor. My wife called 911 while I was unresponsive, and I regained consciousness while being attended to by EMTs who checked my vitals. Around 12am I didn?t feel like I was going to lose consciousness again, and the EMTs recommended I be taken to the hospital. Since I was feeling better I politely declined. Today I am still feeling foggy and have joint pain (in addition to some bruising from falling after losing consciousness , but I no longer have the acute abdominal pain.

On 30 Apr, 2nd day after vaccination, I an episode of heart palpitations ("ventricular premature complexes in a pattern of bigeminy"). These were captured on an EKG during a VA disability exam, and started shortly after providing a blood sample (I'm nervous with needles). Previous day (1st day after vaccination) I had a fever of 101.5 F and was fatigued. Suspect the stress of the fever, immune response, and then blood sample caused a stress event that triggered an abnormal heart rhythm. Palpitations not accompanied by light headedness or shortness of breath, so no immediate medical care directed. Episodes of palpitations continued for 4 days, but have mostly disappeared since.

He was in the restroom of the facility where he received the vaccine and that he did not have hives yet after getting the vaccine, but then asked the nurse if he could take Benadryl and was told yes. He states they then let him go because he had no trouble breathing at that time. He drove home and was going to reroute to hospitals if needed.

Then had extreme burning sensation near injection site for about a minute. Did not report this at the time or before the second vaccine for fear of not being given the second injection. About 10 minutes after second dose, suddenly realized it was difficult to breathe. Removed mask. Started to feel better after a few minutes, replaced bottom, more breathable mask (did not report to observers). Was urged to leave vaccination site due to backlog of patients, so walked back to car. Began to feel pretty out of it (faint again, plus heart racing) on the way back to the car. Considered getting the shuttle back to the injection site, but instead sat in the car until it passed. About 25 minutes after the vaccine, started feeling very hot all over. 30-40 minutes after the vaccine, all reactions seemed to have passed and drove home without incident.

I had an extremely sore body and couldn?t lift my left arm over my head (I have some should problems anyway, but it made it worse). I had a slight headache, but it wasn?t too bad at that point (maybe about 9:30pm). By 12:30am I was feeling pretty crummy in a general sense and decided to go back to bed (I work nights and normally stay up, even on my nights off). I ended up with severe chills and shivering and shuddering by 1:30am. My legs were so restless and I was shuddering so hard I gave myself charlie horses. By 2:30am I started to warm up but because especially nauseated as I got warmer and warmer. I tried to sleep off and on, but ended up in a chair sitting up and dozing with a bucket in case of getting sick. I was panting heavily for some reason. It felt like it was making the nausea less severe (I also sipped on an Alka-Seltzer and took a meclizine). For three hours I was panting and trying not to vomit. Then I kind of settled down and got an hour or two of sleep, still extremely sore and by this time my head was pounding severely. I got up at 6:30am to take my Mirilax in orange juice (I forgot to mention I take a magnesium supplement and senna on a semiregular basis, as well). The combination of Mg, senna, and OJ didn?t sit well. By about 7:30am I began to get the chills again, but it only lasted about a half hour. Again, an episode of nausea after, but more Alka-Seltzer. I tried to eat small amounts of plain salty tortilla chips, but it didn?t help. It?s now 8:20am and the nausea seems to have passed.

He had his first vaccine March 19th, 2021 at 12:15, same lot as above, and 24 hours later he had difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, fatigue, shakes, chills and feeling of weakness/dizziness. It lasted a few days. Then, April 9, 2021, he received his second Covid19 Pfizer shot, same lot at 12:15 pm and the next morning, Saturday, April 10th around 9 am Ira felt the same symptoms from shot 1, but more intense. He was feeling weak, had chills, shakes, profuse sweating, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, dizziness and vomiting. He was unable to keep water down and stayed in bed. A little after 12pm, he complained of difficulty breathing and possibly not getting enough oxygen so I grabbed my equipment (since I'm a CNA) and checked his vitals. His B/P was very high ( 166/107), no fever (96.7), pulse was normal 72, and low respiration but oxygen was above 90. He said he needed to use the bathroom, I suggested using his urinal but he said he needed to have a bowel movement. Once he was in the bathroom, I went downstairs for a glass of water and then suddenly I heard a huge thump. I ran upstairs, knocked on the bathroom-no response but I could hear noises, so I opened the door and I saw he was face down on the floor, head under the bathroom sink counter, blood everywhere, and he was convulsing. I grabbed him immediately and moved him to his side (I had my fitbit on, it said it was 12:30pm), and he kept seizing. He looked discolored almost blueish color. I held him on his side, he vomited, making noises, but unable to speak, continuing to have a seizure. Seizure lasted three minutes. At 12:33pm, once he had calmed, I ran downstairs to find my phone. I was back at his side calling 911 at 12:35. Paramedics arrived 9 minutes later and took him to the hospital. My brother picked me up and took me to the hospital. Once outside his door, I noticed he was finishing taking X-Rays when he suddenly had another seizure.

Would occasionally have difficulty catching my breath while not doing anything. I occasionally felt my heart flutter or it would possibly skip a beat. Mild chest pain below above the sternum but I get that feeling from my Eosinophilic Esophagitis. I've become more concerned recently as I almost fainted once on 5/19 while working at my computer. I've had two other instances of feeling faint, most recently occurring on 5/27. I historically have had no heart issues and can ski and hike all day and feel great so this recent change has been concerning. After reading articles on the covid vaccines I realized that my symptoms are similar to the heart related issues and took ibuprofen when I felt additional chest pressure. That has helped to alleviate the pressure at least.

I was driving home from my town to another town. About 15 mins I thought I had to take leak and my groin area was warming up on the inside and then it started to burn up on the inside and it was painful I was thinking what could have caused and it then I realized I had the pfizer vaccine and then I have implant all of sudden I loss use of arms and it took about 20 mins for me to get use in them and then they started to burn up on the inside. Later on that night I started to cough really bad and my lungs had a hard time keeping me breathing and then I knew I had got the covid from the shot and it was much worst than the actual covid. This was the first dose of the pfizer that I got these reactions and plus I heard about how the vaccine has been sterlizing people from having kids. I knew that the pfizer vaccine is 100% unsafe for anybody to take and that it was a bad batch or wrong vaccine. But I am letting you know that you need to keep money set aside for damages from the vaccine. But please do not be like the other states giving people money, guns, trucks for getting the vaccine. I am warning people not to get it because I almost die in the first dose of the pfizer vaccine.

I thought it would go away but by 5/23 I had partial paralysis on the right side of my face. Fearing a stroke I went to the ER and after a full battery of tests I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. The symptoms worsened for a few days and I was unable to close my right eye, had difficulty breathing out of my right nostril and both eating and drinking were difficult because my lips would not close fully. The symptoms stabilized and then finally began to improve after steroid and antiviral treatment for a week, then on to regular aspirin.

But about a year ago he had gone to the emergency room for a heart attack scare. he thought, because this was when COVID first started happening, his whole family was sick in February and they would not test them at that time because they had not been to China and they never found out if they had it but he ended up getting tested for COVID when he was sick like 6 months later and then that went away and he started having heart palpitations and then after that he thought he would get a COVID antibody test and that came back negative, they told him by the time he got the antibody test, they told him he could have had it but it is not showing up on their antibody rapid test thing. He confirms this all occurred last year in 2020, he thinks it was almost a year ago. He would be sitting on the couch and his heart started racing like crazy. He did not know what that was all about". He said he had no discomfort at all. Concomitant medications were not reported. On an unspecified date in 2021 patient experienced it was like he was catching pneumonia but then his nose was running, neck spasms, blood pressure, clarified as low blood pressure, tired, he got really sick, severe congestion, like bad stuff in his chest and lungs, it was like he was catching pneumonia but then his nose was running, on an unspecified date in 2021 severe allergies, on 29May2021 rapid heart rate, really bad chest pains, stuff in his throat/weird stuff on his throat , cough, on an unspecified date in May2021 vomit, nausea, on an unspecified date in May2021, gasping for air, on an unspecified date interrupted his sleep. Caller received his first dose and was experiencing symptoms such as rapid heart rate and neck spasms and blood pressure. He was too tired to go to the emergency room. He had the weird cough and also stated he had weird stuff on his throat and severe allergies. Regarding his second dose, he wanted to receive but he wanted to know if he could receive a half dose. He also had really bad chest pains and he was going to go to the emergency room but he was too tired to even go. The other reason for calling, he was trying to find out because he was afraid to take the second dose, he wanted to know if he could take a half dose or something, he was trying to find out what he should do. Severe allergies, caller clarified it was like severe allergies or like hay fever kind of, but it was different. Rapid heart rate: He said this began happening the same day as the dose was given, 29May2021, 4 hours after he got the shot. It was not ongoing, it lasted about a day. The rapid heart rate went away the next morning, it stopped doing the crazy things it was doing the next morning, 30May2021. He confirmed that has recovered completely. The chest pain coincided with the rapid heart rate. It went way the same time as the rapid heart rate. It seemed like they both would come and go until the next morning, He confirmed that had recovered completely. He said then the low blood pressure was going on too. It was like it interrupted his sleep, he did not know how to explain it, like he had low blood pressure or like his heart would stop beating and he would wake up gasping for air. It was kind of like a nauseous feeling, he wanted to vomit. It happened with the low blood pressure and was mostly when he was sleeping and a little through the day, the nausea he means, it lasted about a day and a half. The nausea went away on the 30May or the 31May he cannot remember for sure. The cough and stuff in his throat began at the same time the heartbeat stuff started and the cough went away after 2 days. He felt pretty good for about 3 days and then he got really sick, with severe congestion, like bad stuff in his chest and lungs. It was like he was catching pneumonia but then his nose was running, it felt weird like a sickly poison kind of feeling like after he got the shot, he could not tell but it seemed like severe allergies or like hay fever kind of but it was different, it was a weird feeling. He had taken a bunch of herbal remedies Benadryl took herbal allergy stuff and it worked really fast and after like 3 days it was gone. He does not know what that was but it was pretty intense. No further information provided. It was reported that, caller got his first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on 29MAY2021 and had side effects. He wanted to know if he could get only a half dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. He also wanted to know if there was any correlation to having COVID-19 and having more of a reaction. Caller wanted to know if there was a correlation between having COVID-19 and having more side effects to the vaccine. He stated that his Pharmacist said there might be a correlation to people having COVID before getting the vaccine and having more problematic side effects from the first vaccine instead of the second. Response was given as "he should not get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine if he had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of the vaccine or if he had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of the vaccine. The decision to receive the second dose for any other reason cannot be made by Pfizer. He was referred to speak to healthcare provider about the risks of the vaccine compared to the risks of potentially not being fully protected against COVID-19 infection. Healthcare provider would have known the health situation and could access to information that better help inform the decision. From the CONS document on efficacy. Two shots were generally needed to provide the best protection against COVID-19 and the shots were given several weeks apart. The first shot primes the immune system, helping it recognize the virus, and the second shot strengthens the immune response. Side effects after the second shot might be more intense than the ones experienced after the first shot. The side effects are normal signs that body is building protection and should go away within a few days". The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included sars-cov-2 antibody tested negative. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of severe allergies (drug hypersensitivity). He visited emergency room due to the event chest pain. On an unspecified date in 2021 the outcome of the events it was like he was catching pneumonia but then his nose was running, neck spasms, blood pressure, clarified as low blood pressure, tired, he got really sick, severe congestion, like bad stuff in his chest and lungs, it was like he was catching pneumonia but then his nose was running was unknown, on an unspecified date in 2021, severe allergies was recovered, rapid heart rate, really bad chest pains, cough was recovered on 30May2021, on an unspecified date in May2021 vomit, nausea was recovered, gasping for air, interrupted his sleep and stuff in his throat/weird stuff on his throat was unknown.

Within the first few day - typical AEs (low grade fever, sore arm, fatigue). However, the atypical AEs included daily and persistent dizziness, "brain fog", fatigue, difficulty going up the stairs without getting winded (difficulty with physical exertion). These symptoms are still present on March 31st (11 days post injection). GI / diarrhea symptoms are also present. Of note, I did have COVID in the past (January 2021) - and had similar symptoms that had resolved at the time of the vaccine. These symptoms are severe enough that it may prevent the second shot (due to concerns of worsening AEs or prolonged events). Of note, the fatigue was worse with the actual disease vs. the vaccine.

Within 60 seconds of receiving the injection, I experienced moderate breathing difficulty. After 10-20 minutes, I noticed that my throat felt slightly swollen (slight difficulty swallowing). Due to a hyperallergic event that occurred about 12 years ago, I occasionally run into something that triggers the respiratory effect - although usually the reaction is milder than that caused by the vaccine. However, the throat swelling is new. I took a single puff of an Albuterol inhaler around 5 minutes after the injection, but it had no effect (usually the case for me when the cause is allergic in nature). About 37 minutes after the injection, medical staff advised me to take an antihistamine. I took approximately 6 mg of doxylamine succinate (orally). However, by this point, the breathing had already started to ease slightly. Approximately 30 minutes later, my breathing was back to normal and the throat inflamation was gone. It's uncertain how much of that would have occurred through time alone and how much of it was the antihistamine starting to take effect. My BP was very high when measured during treatment. Partially explained by the albuterol inhaler combined with pseudoephedrine taken earlier in the day, along with anxiety and exertion from the event itself.

Diff) colitis; the patient had no risk factors for cardiac disease other than obesity; all from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously took cyclobenzaprine and pregabalin (LYRICA) and experienced allergies. It was unknown if the patient had other vaccine in four weeks. The patient had no COVID-19 prior vaccination. On 08Apr2021, 8 hours after the 2nd Pfizer vaccine was received, the patient developed chest pain with dyspnea. It was also reported that on 08Apr2021, troponin trended to 19; electrocardiogram (EKG) showed very subtle diffuse ST elevations; and the symptoms were consistent with myocarditis. All the adverse events (AE) resulted in a doctor or other healthcare professional office/clinic visit; an emergency room/department or urgent care; and hospitalization on an unspecified date for 3 days. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures, which included other/Xpert Xpress SARS-CoV-at assay: negative on 10Apr2021 (post vaccination). Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of all the events, which included colchicine and ibuprofen. The patient was recovering from all the events.

When I woke up the day after (Day #2) being given the vaccine I was extremely tired exhausted, I had intense chills and hot flashes. Never a fever. I felt nauseated. Completely lethargic. Muscle aches all over my body, was hard to move. I couldn't stay awake. My eyes hurt. I had intense migraines. And no appetite. My right arm hurt, but not as bad as many others' reported. I took ibuprofen to help, it didn't. I drank lots of water and gatorade zero for the electrolytes. It didn't help either. On day #3, this was when it got scary. The previous symptoms carried over, minus the nausea and I was able to be mobile (less lethargic). But something new started to happen. I took my dog out for a short walk, a slow pace, I am very athletic, and I had shortness of breath. I was winded from just walking slowly. Then the brain fog started to set in. This I hated the most. I wasn't able to comprehend things. I tried to assemble an item I bought from Amazon and it was extremely hard to follow simple instructions. I wasn't able to see clearly for some reason. And even comprehending emails that I was receiving was troublesome. I kept drinking water, and was able to eat a little. Had two more bottles of Gatorade Zero. On day 3, most of all the symptoms subsided except that I still got winded from movement. On day 4, I was fine.

It's difficult to pinpoint the exact time the symptoms started, but they were definitely present by the time I awoke the following morning. No arm pain -- but nine days of brain pain, waking up feeling like my head was split, at least five days of altered vision, and most disturbed were my breathing and my heart. I felt for many days like I had a Brillo Pad in my lungs and heart, as well as lots of pressure in the chest and shortness of breath/labored breathing. Two days ago I thought I might be having a heart attack. The symptoms lightened yesterday morning (day nine) though I still have strange sensations in the head and taking a full, deep breath is not totally easy yet. .

Got First Pfizer Covid vaccine on 06JAN2021. About 4 days after that I started noticing allergy symptoms and mild intermittent wheezing. Then on about the 5th day after, my lower back pain increased, causing significant sciatic pain worse than ever before. On 22JAN21 I ended up going to urgent care for increased breathing problems, and also had to have pain management appointment within days as sciatic pain was debilitating and also significantly interfered with my sleep. After steroid injection (In spine)on FEB 3rd for sciatica/back pain, and steroids/inhaler treatment for the breathing stuff, I would say I was pretty good to go . I didn't think too much of these unusual events for me both in timing and severity. On 12FEB2021, I got my second pfizer covid dose. I 14FEB I started noticing allergy symptoms again, and slight shortness of breath, used inhaler I had from before to help as breathing in seemed to not give me full breaths. Then, on 15FEB2021, in the evening out of nowhere while walking, my lower back/sciatica pain came back in full force, as if my leg were a lighting rod like before. So it almost seems as if the covid vaccine triggered an inflammatory reaction in my body. I am not certain, but because the series of events seem the same and in timing after my first covid vaccine, I figured I would at least report it.

Please note that I am the patient in question here, but also an physician, so I will write this in technical terms as best as I understand what happened. For background, my cardiac history is important. I had a work-up for palpitations performed more than a year ago that revealed normal cardiac function (EF > 65% by NM myocardial perfusion study), normal coronary arteries, and significant exercise tolerance (I maxed out the treadmill test). Usuallly I have to engage in vigorous exercise to raise my heart rate > 160 bpm. My resting heart rate is typically in the 50s or less. On Jan 15, 2021 I had an elective cerebral angiography and embolization procedure performed. I was asymptomatic prior to this procedure. The procedure requires general anesthesia for several hours. I have had the procedure conducted a few months previously and it typically has an unremarkable recovery, one night required in the hospital. After the procedure and following extubation, I had hypoxia on room air, tachycardia, wheezing and fatigue. The working cause for this was suspected atelectasis due to general anesthesia and I was given bronchodilators. While my breathing improved overnight, I was very tachycardic even while sleeping ? pulse greater than 130. Overnight telemetry noted arrhythmias with sinus tachycardia. The tachycardia persisted long after prior albuterol use so I had CTA chest on 1/16. No PTE was noted, though some basilar atelectasis and mild upper lobe ground glass opacities. I was discharged but due to continued mild hypoxia overnight, low grade fever (< 101F), and persistent tachycardia with any movement, I went to the ED on 1/17 for additional evaluation. In the ED, I had tachycardia with arrhythmias noted (rate up to 160). Sinoatrial exit block noted on EKG and telemetry. COVID-19 testing was negative by nasopharyngeal PCR and antigen testing. Resting heart rate was > 90 even when sleeping. Follow-up echocardiogram on 1/21/21 revealed depressed ejection fraction (40-45%). Cardia MRI on 2/1 was performed to evaluate for cardiomyopathy. Symptoms at this point were fatigue, dyspnea with even mild activity (e.g. walking), and tachycardia > 140 bpm with even just walking. My resting heart rate improved to 40s-50s. It showed normal wall motion and ventricle size with slightly reduced ejection fraction. Cardiology recommended cardiac event monitoring which I wore for 28 days. It only revealed sinus tachycardia and bradycardia. I still don?t feel great but able to do more physically than a couple of months ago. I await further f/u cardiac imaging to see if there has been improvement in the heart function.

I felt fine after the shot, but two hours later, my throat felt like it was closing and it hurt in a way I've never felt before. I had a bad migraine and my whole body was sore. My blood pressure was high for me at 143/94 with a heart rate of 94. I trend at 120/80 with a heart rate around 90. I take my blood pressure regularly to help manage Type II Diabetes. I was concerned with my throat, as the other symptoms seemed normal for the vaccine. It was very uncomfortable. I phoned the nurse line and was told to have someone bring me to the ER to check me out and take a Benadryl. I took the Benadryl and packed for the ER with meds and ID and my friend drove me. I was still uncomfortable enough to warrant wanting to go and had become very dizzy. When we got to the ER there was a wait and I went to my friend's car until called. After about 30 minutes (about 45 minutes after the Benadryl) my throat released and felt much better. My vitals were taken and seemed normal. The normal aches of the vaccine didn't concern me enough to stay, so I returned home. My symptoms remain what seem to be normal reactions to the vaccine: sore joints, slight headache, slightly sore throat, Charlie horse feeling at the injection site. Nothing of major concern. My largest worry was with the throat feeling closed, but it appears the Benadryl took care of it.

On May 9th I began to experience severe pain in my back extending down my left side. The pain was severe enough to prevent sleeping that night. The pain continued throughout May 10th becoming worse with deep breaths or any type of internal strain (cough, sneeze, etc). That evening, I took two Tylenol and later two Ibuprofen and was able to sleep. The pain persisted for the next week, slowly improving but not fully going away. On May 15th I conducted a telemedicine appointment and was advised to go to either Urgent Care or the ER. I chose the ER at Hospital. A D-Dimer test showed elevated results and a CT scan was ordered. The CT revealed blood clots in my right lung, specifically "Subpleural conslidation in the posterior basilar segment the right lower lobe is present, compatible with pulmonary infarct. Question additional pulmonary infarct in the lateral basilar segment the lower right lobe. Probable atelectasis in the left lung base." MD prescribed Eliquis @ 10mg 2x daily and I was discharged with a referral to .

This is a Healthcare employee working at a facility, divested this center and it is under new management. Previously on 12/1/2020 PT was diagnosed as COVID-19 positive, remained asymptomatic and returned to work on 12/11/2020. On 12/28 administered the vaccine at a workplace clinic . 4 days post-immunization on 12/31/2020 PT reported feeling "unwell' to his direct supervisor and was sent home. On 1/4/2021 PT reported to his supervisor that he had gone to the hospital due to having a fever and shortness of breath, he was tested for COVID at that time and was negative. PT returned home. On 1/13/2021 the center received a call from PT mother reporting that her son had returned to the hospital on the evening of 1/12/2021. Per his mother, PT was attempting to drink from a straw, but was unable to and had noted a facial droop. When he arrived at the hospital he was diagnosed with "suspected Bell's Palsy". Due to the immunization being administered on 12/28/2020 and suspected diagnosis of Bell's Palsy on 1/13/2021 it is unclear if the two events are related.

I was playing ice hockey on April 10, 2021 when I started to experience shortness of breath. Coming to the bench between shifts is part of the game and that time on the bench is used to recover (both for your muscles and for your cardiovascular system). However, towards the latter part of the game, I continued to be short of breath even while sitting on the bench. Then in the last 10 minutes or so of the game, I fell to the ice for no reason. It was as if my muscles had just totally failed. I thought the shortness of breath may have been a sign of a Covid infection since I had not reached the 14 day period after my second shot. So I went to urgent care to get a Covid test. My test came back negative, but the doctor was concerned with my symptoms, so he took an x-ray of my heart and an ECG. He said that he noticed a blur around my heart, but didn't have any explanation. He thought I was in very good health, so he gave me a list of heart specialists to contact if I had another 'episode'. Fortunately, I did not have another episode. The only reason that I am submitting this incident is because I understand the administration is having an emergency meeting to review cases of an inflamed heart. I am not sure my situation was an inflamed, but I wanted to have my episode documented in case my situation was a temporary adverse reaction to the vaccine.

After receiving the vaccine I had the occasional sore arm and pain at the vaccination site. The second day after I started to feel my chest started to burn, which was accompanied by trouble breathing. It was a pain that I have never experienced before in my chest it felt tight and was burning very bad. I started to feel light headed as if I was going to faint while doing my normal daily activities. I decided to stop doing anything that caused my heart to beat too fast. So later on that night i decided to go to the ER, where they did an ekg and some blood work. They also did a scan of my chest where the doctor said everything came back and looked normal. Over time the pain and everything I was experiencing started to get better. I still have a hard time breathing every now and then. Also after the vaccine I experienced a slight cough and runny nose.

3/25: Approx 5 mins after injection, started breathing quickly and became lightheaded. Moments later, heart rate elevated north of 190 bpm and blood pressure went up to approx 180/100. Developed dry mouth (was very thirsty) and shaking/chills. Took about 60 minutes to stabilize. Went to ER for evaluation and tests around 2:30P. Received a liter of fluid. Both EKG and Bloodwork was indicated as normal. Released from hospital around 6P. Slept through most of the night. 3/26: heart rate was erratic all day. Would race and then stabilize throughout the day/night. Extremely lethargic. No trouble breathing (was able to breathe and take deep breathes) but took effort to breathe. 3/27: 1:40A woke up heart began racing at close to 200 bpm. Dry mouth, shakes. Similar to what I experienced immediately following the vaccine shot. Went to ER out of precaution. Symptoms stabilized after about an hour. Hospital did EKG, blood work and chest X-ray. all were normal, lungs were clear. However, glucose and bilirubin were both slightly elevated. 3/29: Still feeling lethargic. Heart rate has stabilized some but is still erratic. It easily increases from simply walking around the house (much more than usual). 3/30: Scheduled appointment with primary care physician 3/31: Scheduled appointment with cardialogist

The evening of the shot my body basically turned on itself and began an all out mission to rid the vaccine. Of course, that couldn't happen, but my body was going to proceed until I was dead or recovering. I began having severe chills, roasting heat flashes, headache, and body ache. Every sweat gland turned on full blast and did not turn off. I began to vomit in outrageous fashion. As violent as I've ever experienced. I had "sessions" of vomiting at least thirty times from Thurs night to Monday afternoon. When I could get out of the bathroom, I would collapse back into my sweat soaked bed. I would have an awful time trying to catch my breath. It would be up to ten minutes of hyperventilating and racing pulse, until it would suddenly normalize. And then I'd be utterly exhausted and slip into some kind of semi-sleep coma. This would not last even an hour before I'd be racing to the bathroom again. This was the first sixty hours. Vomit. Hyperventilate. Wish for death. Sleep coma. Repeat. About 24 hrs in I added severe diarrhea that was a part of every bathroom journey from then on. Ate nothing. Couldn't take normal meds. Sipped some pedialite. Late Sunday I turned a corner and felt like I wouldn't die. Took a full seven days for me to get any energy back and feel human again.- Every single symptom besides headache, was the worst I've ever experienced.

He felt very bad the night he received the 2nd shot of Pfizer covid-19 vaccine on April 27. He even joked he probably would die that night. He also complained that despite his protest, the person who administered the shot insisted to inject on his shoulder joint. He developed a bigger-than-quarter-size bruise on his right inner arm the next day. He was feeling tired the following days. On May 4 around 3:30, I heard he was making loud noises. I came to his side immediately. At the time I thought he was making louder than usual snores. I nudged him gently but he didn't respond. After about 15 seconds, the sound stopped, and he had no breath. I then called 911 within 10 seconds, tried to do CPR on him. It took EMS 6 minutes to arrive even though we live very close to a fire station in a well-accessed urban area. EMS worked on him for about 30 minutes before transported him to hospital. They continued to work on him for a while. He never regained breath.

pneumonia; valley fever; diabetes; shortness of breath/difficulty breathing; body aches; headache; got sick; hadn't been well enough; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. This consumer (patient) reported for himself that a 49-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) at the age of 49-years, via an unspecified route of administration, administered in right arm on 23Apr2021 at 02:11 at single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included he and his family did have the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020 (with the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020 his fever had reached 103 degrees Fahrenheit). Concomitant medications were not reported. He was calling about the vaccine. He was scheduled for his second dose on 14May2021 but between his first and second dose, he developed pneumonia. He reported he and his family did have the COVID-19 virus in Nov2020. He was the only one that got sick after receiving the vaccine. He didn't know if it was coincidental or happenstance. He had been taking medication and hadn't been well enough to get his second dose. His primary care doctor and the doctor he saw at the urgent care both told him not to get the second dose until he was well. Now several weeks had passed and he wanted to know if he was ok to get the second one or will he have to restart and get the first vaccine again. The type of pneumonia that he had was called Valley Fever. He had been told it was because of the dry climate. He did have a chest x-ray and that was who the doctor knew he had pneumonia. He also had a blood test to confirm that he had the Valley Fever. He also had a COVID-19 virus test and that was negative. He actually thought he had the COVID-19 virus for a second time. The symptoms were exactly like the COVID-19 virus. He had a low grade fever, body chills, body aches, a cough developed and a really intense headache. He went to the urgent care with those symptoms and tested him and found out he did have the Valley Fever, a type of pneumonia. The doctor ordered the blood test to confirm the Valley Fever. His fever didn't get as high this time like it did when he had the COVID-19 virus. This time with the Valley Fever his fever was about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. He definitely had body aches, chills, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. Since Nov2020 when he had COVID-19 he can say his lung capacity wasn't what it used to be pre COVID-19 virus. He was just able to go out and walk his dog and felt like he was breathing normally. Then he received the first dose and a week and a half later he got sick with the Valley Fever. He would like to get the second COVID-19 vaccine but wanted to know if he had to start the process over. He didn't take any medications and considers himself healthy. He would like to add that when he went for his follow up for the Valley Fever he had a complete blood work and urinalysis and interestingly enough his numbers came back that now he was in the diabetic range. He didn't know if it was related to the COVID-19 vaccine or not but thought that he should add it. He wasn't prescribed any medications for the diabetes he was told to change his diet. His blood sugar came back normally and his doctor told him when people have diabetes their blood sugar gets out of whack. He was going to change his diet for the next couple months. He went to the urgent care on 14May2021 with his symptoms, that was the same day he was supposed to get the second COVID-19 vaccine. He was asking if he was outside the window and need to start over or just need to get another shot. He said that he wants to get the vaccine.

Immediately after receiving the injection, I felt pain/sore that traveled from the injection site, went through and across my left pectoral and ended at center of my chest/heart area. I waited 15 minutes in the observation area to see if symptoms would get worse, but they did not; and so I left the facility and drove home. On my way home, about 45 minutes after receiving the shot, I felt my throat tightening up a bit, and my left hand and eyelids began to cramp up. I stopped at a pharmacy and bought some Benadryl. After 30 minutes, the pain in my chest began to feel better, and the cramping had disappeared. At about 6 pm that same day, my chest pain returned; and so I took one more Benadryl. The pain/soreness began to disappear after about 30 minutes. I felt fine for exactly two weeks. On Thursday, April 1st, I woke up with severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constant vomiting for about 12 hours. Went to urgent care and received an anti-nausea shot. The vomiting stopped, but the abdominal pain continued until the next morning. The weekend of April 10th, I experienced the chest pain again. This time it was very concerning because I felt very lightheaded, short of breath and faint. I checked myself into ER two days after.

No eye infection, Instructed to use Refresh drops. In 4 days subsided. Day 7 experienced ear flushing and warmth that last 3 days and subsided. Saw a neurologist to rule out nerve damage. EMG was normal. ANA titer was 1:40 with speckled and cytoplasma pattern. My last ANA was negative when tested for inflammation due to back pain few years prior. Neurologist did not think this was an allergic reaction and since symptoms were gradually improving recommended second dose. Symptoms fully resolved after 2 weeks Dose 2 - Jan 19 , 2021 (21 days post) - Decided to inject left deltoid to avoid trauma to right arm. Was observed 30 mins and released. No symptoms.

Began with a slight headache that eventually got worse. Started, when treated, at a 5 of 10. Left facility with a 7 of 10 headache. Then I had a weird taste in my mouth (metallic like). My tongue started to tingle and was a bit numb. Eventually after Doctor at facility took me in, I was given benedryl 50 mg and an antacid. After a few minutes the right side of my mouth became itchy but the tingling stopped. The itch was not unbearable but it was getting there. I was already having a slight difficulty breathing but that was from the morning even with inhalers. As an instrument player a doctor said I have super lungs so my results would be skewed due to how much air I take in. But any loss of air, although in the safe range for others, is like breathing through a straw for me. My blood pressure was 139/90 at the time. My normal blood pressure is 117/70. I went home feeling cold and just not feeling well, relatable to flu symptoms. This is the next day after taking benedryl every 6 hours at 50mg/dose. My breathing is slightly labored. I feel ok but my arm hurts, I have been moving it around a lot just to get it mobile. My chest feels like there is a slight weight on it which is weird for me. At the moment my pulse is 81bpm and my oxygen is at around 96. My norm is around 70bpm and oxygen at 99. No temperature is consistent at 97.3. I feel a little weird today. I am stiff all over as well. Little aches here and there but that is a norm. Doing my stretches and exercise is not a go today. Can't breathe as normal.
