First noticed symptoms after waking up during the night roughly 14 hours after receiving the 2nd dose of the vaccine. Felt EXTREMELY fatigued and my heart was racing. Fell back asleep and woke up again around 8am. Symptoms persisted. Extremely tired and fatigued and heart was beating fast. Resting heart rate of around 100bpm which jumped to 120bpm when I moved at all (including just rolling over in bed). This persisted throughout the day, and I stayed in bed. In the early afternoon (about 24 hours after 2nd vaccine dose) I started to feel aches in neck and back and started a headache. Took my temperature and had a fever (101). Aches/headache continued to get worse throughout the afternoon. Finally around 4:30pm I found my Tylenol and took a dose. This substantially helped reduce all my symptoms; although I was still tired, it was much less than earlier in the day. Took a dose of Advil around 7:30pm and went to bed about an hour later. By morning, my symptoms were practically all gone, I was just slightly more tired than normal that day (2nd day after vaccine). I did not take any more medication.

A 26-year-old male with no past medical history presents to the emergency department (ED) with an acute episode of chest pain. He reports initially mild dull substernal chest pain for a day prior to an episode of acute sharp chest pain that radiates to his left neck and left shoulder accompanied by diaphoresis leading him to present to the ED. He had received the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccine three days prior to presentation and reported myalgia and weakness beginning within 24 hours of vaccination. His blood pressure on arrival was 126/83 mmHg and pulse was 61 bpm. Electrocardiogram (ECG) on admission showed diffuse upsloping 2mm STE, no reciprocal changes, and PR elevation in aVR. Troponin-I on admission was 6.03 ng/ml prior to peaking at 21 ng/ml while initial CRP was 56.8 mg/L. Transthoracic echo (TTE) showed left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 55-60% with hypokinesis of the basal lateral wall. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) was consistent with myocarditis showing subepicardial late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) in the basal inferior wall, no edema on T2 sequences, and a mildly reduced left ventricular systolic function with an LVEF of 51%. He was started on colchicine, low dose beta blocker and losartan and improved symptomatically along with resolution of the EKG findings prior to being discharged with plan for close outpatient follow-up and repeat imaging. In addition, a respiratory viral PCR panel was obtained which was positive for Rhinovirus/Enterovirus on nasal swab. Although it is possible that his presentation was secondary to enteroviral myocarditis, the temporal relationship to the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccine suggests the possibility of myocarditis secondary to immunologic response to COVID-19 vaccine itself.

Electrocardiogram (EKG) and blood work were done in the emergency room on unspecified date in May2021 and came back normal. He was supposed to meet with a cardiologist next week. On unspecified date in May2021, he still felt kind of like he senses his heart beating but he didn't usually think about. It felt more strange, than soreness. This was all just so new. Thought it was a sign that he was going to recover and it was going to go away. The palpitations were coming on less and less. Was not so much of an irregular heart beat than last week. On unspecified date in May2021, felt like his heart was getting strong. Felt like his heart was making it's way back and was more like a sore or a strain. It had been going down and he was not feeling his heart in his chest. Treatment was no, not this far. There was not prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. The outcome of the event "fainted while using the restroom and woke on the bathroom floor" was unknown, for other events was recovering.

I began to experience rapid heart rates to the 140s intermittently starting on the Wednesday following my first vaccination. I also had associated neck pain and "pounding sensation" in my neck, chest, and arms. I had difficulty lying flat at night and developed a dry cough. I went to the urgent care on 4/19/21 and was diagnosed with torticollis. No one at the urgent care listened to my heart or lungs. Given that my symptoms had been diagnosed, I delayed seeking further treatment. My symptoms continued to worsen. I had difficulty walking long distances, exercising. I became short of breath easily. I ended up going to my primary care doctor on 4/26/21 for a second evaluation. He was concerned and did an EKG, it only showed sinus tachycardia. He scheduled me for an echocardiogram and put me on a beta blocker (Bystolic) 5 mg once daily. The echo showed EF 47% with global hypokinesis of the L ventricle. Doctor called me into the office as soon as he saw the results, concerned for myocarditis or pericarditis.

I haven?t gone to a doctor. Before any news came out about heart inflammation, I felt my heart beating really fast after this vaccine. Now it?s been 2 months and I still feel like my heart is ?inflamed?. I?m a big believer in science, and I stand by the vaccine, but literally my heart has been hurting a lot more (IT LITERALLY NEVER HURT) before the vaccine. I really hope I didn?t just mess up my body somehow with this. Legitimately the pain is not bad at all (maybe a 2 out of ten) but it has not gone down since I got the vaccine. I notice when I do physical activity I also get tired faster. I run, I?m a relatively healthy person but I?m experiencing some mild heart inflammation after this shot. Please take note. I still stand beside the vaccine, I?m just explaining what symptoms I?m feeling. And of course idk if it?s from the vaccine, but I?ve never had this feeling in my heart before having this vaccine. I hope it goes away.

A 27-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), intramuscularly in unknown arm on 17Dec2020 at single dose for routine mass immunizations (covid-19 immunization). The COVID-19 vaccine was administered at Hospital. Not a military facility. The patient's medical history was reported as none and concomitant medications was none (he was on no other medications). The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. The patient experienced tachycardia, intermittent palpitations, low grade fever/fever all started somewhere in the morning of 18Dec2020 and muscle aches on 17Dec2020. Physician assessed tachycardia and intermittent palpitations as serious due to medically significant.

The patient had mostly tachycardia with some intermittent palpitations. Patient was seen in his office on 18Dec2020, and got the COVID vaccine on 17Dec2020. He also reported fever and muscle aches, although the fever was subjective and was not documented. Tachycardia improved and sent him to cardiology on 21Dec2020. It was not life threatening and they did an Electrocardiogram (EKG). His initial heart rate was 130. When he was seen again in their office on 21Dec2020, it was 93, which was baseline. It improved. He never got his temperature. The highest in office was 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. He had some muscle aches.

He was seen on 18Dec2020 and again on 21Dec2020. Relevant tests: they did testing for tachycardia but not related specifically. They did thyroid and EKG in office and he did not know if test were back. EKG was ok.

Called urgent care who directed me to go to a hospital as soon as possible and asked about all events leading up to this, noting that the vaccine may potentially have this side effect, as written in the medical journal. Went to the ER, they put me in stroke protocol, did CAT scan, negative results, blood tests (including for Lyme), MRI to look for tumors after the CAT scan was negative, and an echocardiogram as they detected a new heart murmur never present before. MRI showed Bell's palsey in one facial nerve, all other tests are negative, including for Lyme's disease, a common cause. I am still experiencing it, and am on Valtrex (anti viral) and Prednisone, but the symptoms still exist. There is no other change in my life or health, the only thing I've done differently is have the vaccine (for which we are grateful).

I had intense stomach pains, muscle pains for 4 days. Could not get out of bed. Also had a fever. I thought these were regular side effects and eventually got better. Then, about a week later I started getting nose bleeds with blood clots coming out of my nose. These lasted a few more days. This never happened to me before, and must have been a side effect from the vaccine.

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.

Assumed it was a cold initially, due to sore throat. Sore throat came without other side effects of cold. Used a flashlight to look at throat. I appear to have developed a canker sore on my tonsil. Because of the location of it, the tonsil is also agitated and has been bleeding leading me to have black stool as well as cough up blood and an upset stomach. This is something I have never experienced before. It may be unrelated to the vaccine, I am not sure, but I figured it is something worth reporting.

A continuous pain feeling in the center of chest. Chest area also had a somewhat constricted and general tightness feeling. On the 3rd-5th days after the shot, had a few brief periods of dizziness and high anxiety, lasting less than a minute or so each. Symptoms improved pretty quickly from there, and by about day 7 or so the chest pain was gone and felt completely back to normal. No significant fatigue, fever, or problems breathing at any point. Have not had any symptoms at all since.

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.

Around 2 weeks after my first dose, I started having heart palpitations. The palpitations were on and off for a week and I didn't think of it much. A week after the palpitations started it started happening more frequently and I was feeling light headed and I went to ER. I was diagnosed with SVT and put on metoprolol to control my heart rate. 1 week after I was on metoprolol, I took my second dose. I was feeling a little dizzy after my second dose but it improved after like 10 minutes. I started getting very fatigued and difficult to concentrate after my second dose. I spoke to my doctor and we thought it was because of metoprolol. My cardiologist took me off metoprolol but the fatigue didn't stop and I started having aches in shoulders, arms, neck and back. The aches and fatigue was more severe in the morning. After a week of being off metoprolol I started waking up with chest pain. One day the pain was severe and I had aches in shoulders, arms, neck and back and my heart rate was around 140 so I went to ER. The doctors put me on carvedilol and my heart rate has been controlled but my body aches and fatigue has been going on. The cardiologist and my PCP aren't sure if SVT or the medication is causing my body aches and fatigue. The only other thing I could think of was the vaccine so I wanted to send this report.

(Please note I am making this report for a Pfizer bio tech vaccine that was done abroad, for the sole purpose of providing information for CDC) I got my first vaccine on a Saturday. Three days later on a Tuesday I got four like symptoms. Whilst resting at home I wake up on Thursday with tachycardia (130bpm) Same the next day, and the end it seems to stop. About a week later I start noticing every time I get up my heart rate jumps to 120-130 bpm and stays there. Returning to normal resting heart levels when sitting back down. Same thing happens now when just walking, it used to be no more than 100 after a 20 minute walk or so, but it stays at 120-130 now. A small uphill will send it to about 155bpm. Every morning now when I wake up, if I stand up it?s there at around 120-130. As the day goes by the resting heart rate seems to fall, and by the late afternoon usually it?s back to normal levels, maybe even bradycardic levels below 60bpm, without a feeling of fainting or anything. My pathologist in country who examined me was surprised by this as he confirmed the large range of heart rate from simple standing and sitting tests whilst checking blood pressure etc, pointing to a possible autonomic nervous system issue, maybe even POTS syndrome. Whilst I do have cardiomyopathy, this huge variation in heart rate started with the 1st vaccine whilst going through the typical side effects. I used to walk 6 miles a day for exercise only and then some depending on that day?s obligations. I also eat pretty healthily and am no overweight. I just wanted to let someone know for research purposes.

Last weekend on Sunday morning (April 25th), I received my second shot of Pfizer vaccine at 9am. My body started to show some side effects on the evening of Sunday. I felt super cold around 10 pm and at the same time, I had a fever, too. I went to bed early that night (around 10:30 pm) and since I was super cold, I had 3-4 blankets on me when I was on my bed. Suddenly, at 1 am, I woke up due to a very strange noise in my head (a very low-volume noise of knocking on the door every 10 seconds!! I think it was only something in my mind). Since I couldn't sleep because of that low artificial noise, I decided to go to the bathroom at around 1:10 am (My bode was also in lots of pain at that time). When I started to walk, I realized that something is wrong with my body. When I peed and stood up to get back to my bed, I noticed that I'm losing control! Therefore, I hit the bathroom door to wake up my girlfriend, and then I fainted! (I can't remember anything for about 30 seconds here). My girlfriend told me that when I fainted, one of my eyeballs was upward and the other was downward (like zombies!!). She started to freak out and called her mom, but once they started talking, I woke up. My body was soaking wet when I woke up and I was in lots of pain. I asked her to help me to lay down on the ground. After 10 minutes, that my sweats were gone, I started feeling cold and asked her to give me a blanket. I couldn't sleep for about 2-3 hours after I fainted, but I was feeling better (I was much better than the time before fainting). On Monday afternoon, I called the health center and told them my side effects. They strongly recommended visiting ER ASAP since the symptoms that I described were severe side effects of Pfizer. Therefore, I went to ER on Monday (April 26th) to see what?s the issue. Hopefully, after spending 3-4 hours there, and passing some tests, the results did not show anything wrong with my body, but just the side effects of the vaccine.

"History obtained from: patient Patient is a 28 y.o. male with hx of post-viral myopericarditis in 2013 but otherwise healthy who presents for recurrence of myopericarditis incidentally not long after receiving 2nd COVID vaccine Got the 2nd COVID vaccine on Sunday. Monday felt fevers and chills and malaise all day. Tuesday morning felt some retrosternal chest discomfort that lasted an hour or so and spontaneously went away. Was able to go to work all day and do fine. Works in a garage and lifts heavy tires. Yesterday took kids to day care, felt a little pain that morning which resolved. Picked them up in the evening and was going to hang out with them but had recurrence of pain and this time was quite severe. Tried to take some tylenol but threw this up. Came to the ED and had to wait 1-2 hours to be seen, but the time he was his pain had nearly resolved. Troponin taken around 10000. Cardiology consulted, think this might be reactivation / recurrence of his prior myopericarditis."

Has been highly functional. Recently got 2nd COVID vaccine and had fevers/chills after that. Recurrent chest pain 3/24 w/o provocation, aborted on its own but has trop elevated to 10,000. EKG does not show STEMI and patient actually asymptomatic in ED. No infectious symptoms. Unclear but wonder if COVID vaccine could have caused recurrence of prior myopericarditis?

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 felt a heart palpitations and I held off for a day or two before going to see my PCP. I was able to speak with an advice Nurse ordered an EKG from the suggestion of another doctor. I was placed on a heart monitor for two weeks and my heart beat seemed to be normal. Another test was ran that was not related to the heart symptoms that I experienced and it was not helpful. I will be going to do a blood test to access whether there is something going on in my blood that's related to the palpitations that I am currently experiencing (symptoms went away for two weeks and recently came back).

After receiving the vaccine, I started feeling hyperaware. For example, my wife smokes but not around me and for the first time, I could smell cigarettes in the car. Also, my dog who is rather clean, I could smell which is not usual. I had back pain. My tongue felt tingly and numb, my blood pressure was at around 150, my heart rate was at around 116. This persisted for about 30 mins or so. I was sent to the ER and was there for about 6 hours. Since the vaccine, I could be doing nothing, and I?d have random bouts of extremely high heart rate. For about a month after the vaccine I had trouble doing even the most mundane tasks. I was first put on metoprolol for about 2 weeks. I was put on a Holter monitor so I had to stop taking it. I was then switched to atenolol which has helped since. After the vaccine, I was going to the bathroom once every 4 days which was unusual for me. It was also yellow which was abnormal for me. I also lost about 20 lbs in this time frame which my doctor credited due to the elevated heart rate. I had to take time off from work because walking from my car to my office was exhausting for me. I was on atenolol which definitely helped but my doctor suggests that I take half a pill. Taking half a pill does not help with the heart rate compared to the original dosage. My most recent episode of elevated heart rate was about 3 weeks ago. I am also on omeprazole which I am not certain if it is helpful. I also am experiencing random muscle pains on the left side of my body. My doctor also credits some of these symptoms to anxiety which I have never experienced before. Essentially, for the first 1-2 months, my heart rate was extremely high but after the atenolol, it has returned to normal. In the ambulance the paramedic noted that when I was lying still my heart rate was normal but when I would move or talk my heart rate would jump up. Also, just to note, after receiving my vaccine I interacted with my cousin who I later found out had COVID.

left sided weakness; it has weakened his heart; stutter; severe stroke like symptoms; Ventricular tachycardia/help keep his heart rate at bay; Loss of balance; extreme numbness and tingling in left hand and foot; tingling in left hand and foot; oral motor impairment; mouth weakness and not coordinated/mouth is fatigued easily; Issues finding words and trouble speaking; Issues finding words and trouble speaking; Ejection fraction down to 25%; The initial case was missing the following minimum criteria: adverse event. Upon receipt of follow-up information on 28Dec2020, this case now contains all required information to be considered valid. This is a spontaneous report from a contactable other healthcare professional (HCP). A 29-years-old male patient received bnt162b2 (lot number: EJ1685), intramuscular (deltoid left) on 21Dec2020 at 05:30 at 0.3 mL single (first dose) for Covid. Medical history was reported as "none". Concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously received Flu vaccine in Oct2020 for immunization. The patient is an Occupational Therapist, and he called to report an adverse event that he experienced with the first dose of the COVID Vaccine. He received the vaccine last Monday, 21Dec2020 at 5:30AM before his shift at work, then 20 minutes later, he was having severe stroke like symptoms. He experienced severe left sided weakness, loss of balance, extreme numbness and tingling in his left hand and foot, he had issues finding his words and he couldn't speak, and he had an oral motor impairment where his mouth was weak and not coordinated. The staff at the hospital did a neurological exam on him, and he failed, so he had to go to the emergency room (ER). The patient added that he was already in the hospital when this happened, and the ER doctors suspected that he had a CVA, and they gave him TPA to prevent any permanent brain damage and it worked. The patient then added that due to the shock of this whole event, from everything that happened, it has weakened his heart. Reportedly, he is a healthy 29 year old man, with no preexisting conditions, and he works out, and he has no heart conditions, but he had to get a cardiology follow up a few days after he got the vaccine, because he started going in to Ventricular Tachycardia, which he had never had in his life. So, the doctors at the hospital went ahead and did an Echocardiogram and an EKG, and he was told that his Ejection Fraction is down to 25%. He stated his heart is so weak, that he cannot work right now, but the structure of his heart is fine and has not had any damage. The hospital staff thought that maybe the patient had a chronic heart issue that he just did not know about, and that the stress of this event maybe made it kick into overdrive, but he states that the cardiologist said that was not the case, because the structure of his heart is fine, and the only thing they can see is that the heart is pumping weak. One physician even suggested that due to the shock of the event, he might have Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, which is a broken heart, but because the structure of his heart is okay, it should be reversible. He stated that he is hoping he will heal up good, because he is young and has no pre-existing conditions. He added that his heart is in such a state right now; he has to wear an external defibrillator. The patient stated that all these happened about 20 minutes after he received the vaccine, and he was admitted to the hospital from 21Dec2020 to 25Dec2020. His neurological symptoms have resolved except that he has a stutter that he did not have before and his mouth is fatigued easily, so he has to slow down when he is eating, but now he can eat regular for the most part. The patient confirmed that he was not specifically prescribed the product; it was administered to him at his place of work, but it was optional. He stated he considered how he is working with COVID patients every day, and given the circumstance, he thought that it would be a best practice for him to get the vaccine. He had not gone to his primary care doctor in a while because he had been fine and healthy, but he called them and found out that his primary care had retired, so he has to find a new one now. Regarding the issues finding words and trouble speaking, he stated that he has improved, but it is still ongoing, he is just stuck in a plateau zone. With the Ventricular Tachycardia, he stated that this is an ongoing issue, as he has to wear the life vest even though he has no need to activate it yet. He did have one minor bought of the VTach, but because he is a therapist, he knows how to take care of it with relaxation techniques, he knows how to manage it. He had one bought of VTach the evening prior, but he was able to get it under control. The doctors have him on medication to help keep his heart rate at bay. He has never had to use medication before and is on the following medications to help keep his heart rate at bay: Metoprolol 25mg one tablet once daily by mouth and Lisinopril 5mg one tablet once daily by mouth. The VTach has improved, it was good enough he was able to discharge home, but it is still a concern. His cardiologist said that, basically his hope, is that once his body recover from the whole shock of everything, then his ejection fraction will heal, and his heart will heal. He again stated that the doctor told him that the structure of his heart is perfectly fine; he has thick walls in his heart, no leaking valves, and the heart was not conducting any abnormal signals. The doctor just said that right now, his heart is super weak and that it is an acute problem. With the Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, he states that two doctors mentioned this diagnosis, but he confirmed that he was not actually diagnosed with this issue, he was just diagnosed with Ventricular Tachycardia. The outcome of the ejection fraction down to 25% was unknown to the patient at this time as he has not had another EKG or echocardiogram, but the cardiologist told him that the cardiologist expects that this will not be resolved quickly anyway. The patient confirmed that he did not receive any other vaccines on the same day he received the COVID vaccine. The only other vaccine he had this year was the flu vaccine which he got back in Oct2020. He has gone on to his online portal and there are the bloodwork results and all the imaging results on there from his CTs and MRIs, but he did not see the EKG or Echocardiogram results yet. He does not have this pulled up at this time, but he does have access to this stuff and can provide it later, if requested. He is curious about the next steps from here to how his case is processed. He is also curious if this information would help Pfizer make modifications to the vaccine if it is found that a lot of people are having the same reaction as he did.

After leaving the vaccination clinic following the 15 minute waiting period, I felt normal and ran a quick errand before returning to work. After completing the errand (roughly 15 minutes), I began driving back to my office (roughly 10 minute drive). As I was roughly 1/2 mile from the office, I started to feel slightly lightheaded/woozy. I continued to drive toward the office, and within a matter of a couple minutes or less, I was overcome with extreme disorientation and faintness. Before I could manage to return to the office or pull over to collect myself, I completely lost consciousness and crashed into another vehicle. Even after the crash, I was unconscious for roughly a minute or so until I finally came to and realized what had happened. It then took me another couple of minutes to collect myself and exit the vehicle to assess the situation and ensure all parties were alright. Police/Emergency services were contacted and a police report was filed. After the event, I remained slightly nauseated for approximately 3 hours and had intermittent chill episodes, but the adverse events have since subsided.

I felt soreness and pressure build up in my arm starting a few hours after the receiving the dose. The soreness and pressure got progressively worse over the course of two days. It wasn't unbearable, just uncomfortable. The second day after the vaccine I had stretched my arm pretty good for minute, when I released the stretch I felt a rush of something for from my arm into my torso. I got really dizzy and passed out, my wife was in the room at the time and said I never closed my eyes; but I had completely blacked out. My wife had woken me up and I wasn't sure what had happened, it took me about 30 seconds to realize I had passed out after stretching that arm. My arm had felt better after waking up from passing out, and soreness had passed a couple days later. I didn't get checked out, after I woke up I started feeling fine. I'm honestly not sure if it's directly related to the vaccine or not, I just thought I should let someone know just in case.
