One week after 2nd vaccine, Friday 2/19, woke up with my right eyelid red, swollen, itchy, discharge. Saw eye doctor, OD., whom I work for. She diagnosed "Swollen sub-mandibular & pre-auricular lymphatic nodes." I am being treated with: 1) Erythromycin Ophth Oint 3.5GM 2) Prednisolone AC 1% Ophth Susp 5ML 3) Pataday Doctor believes that my viral infection might be a result of the Covid 19 vaccine, and gives assurance that her treatment will resolve issues. She is unsure whether, or not, I am considered contagious during this time? Inquiries at the college were unfruitful. I hope my reporting this is not a violation in any way. Many thanks.

Tinnitus has been going on in top section of my head since about 3 hours after the vaccine. I believe I have a compromised blood brain barrier due to the fact that I had taken prescribed anti inflammatory for 15 years for my lower back pain. So now if I take anything with anti inflammatory effects I get tinnitus but it goes away soon afterward, depending on strength of dose. It has been 4 days now with no sign of relief. I am eating a low salicylate diet right now to help my body process any anti inflammatory.

I received my vaccine on a Tuesday morning, and five days later on Sunday morning I woke up with very swollen checks--my head looked like a pumpkin. When my girlfriend saw me in the afternoon, she said, "I'm taking you to the emergency room!" But, I told her that I had no fever and no other symptoms, so we should wait. The swelling was bad enough that my jaws ached and my cheeks felt like they were going to burst, but if I didn't chew any food, the swelling would subside slightly, and my jaws would stop aching. I read online that people with botox who get the vaccine can have facial swelling and a 24 hour course of benadryl will knock down the swelling. I have never had botox injections, but I took some benadryl for two days, which made me feel really tired. I ate only soup and yogurt, so that I didn't have to chew any food. I don't know if the benadryl had any effect, but over about 5 days, the swelling subsided, then I could eat again without causing my jaws to swell up.

Then on Saturday, his eyes started to tear a lot, and the right side of his face started drooping like that of a stroke. He also said he had headache on the back of his head, and his eyes do not. The patient wanted to know if he should go to the emergency room or if this is a normal reaction to the vaccine. The patient did have a sensation starting on Thursday of numbness in his mouth.

A 60-years-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection) dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration on 06Jan2021 (Lot Number: EJ1685, expiry date not reported) as single dose; and dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration on 29Jan2021 (lot Number: EL8982, expiry date not reported) as single dose; for covid-19 immunization. Medical history included eye surgery (he already had surgery once) from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. Patient received first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on 06Jan2021 then on 29Jan2021 the 2nd dose. He experienced side effects: floaters on 06Jan2021, and streaks of lightening then vision loss on 15Mar2021. There was a large left horseshoe tear on the retina in the left and a detached retina on the left and a tear on the right retina on 19Mar2021. He already had surgery once. He will have 2nd surgery on the other eye. Reporter reported a follow up. He can't see at all. He was recovering and has to lay on face for 2 weeks. Reporter stated she read about retina problems related to the virus but not to the vaccine, could not find information. Patient was a retail pharmacist. He deals with customers and several customers stated they had vision problems with the vaccine: double vision, loss of sight. "There was a problem out there, but maybe they were not reporting it took reporter 2 hours to report so they may not have the time to sit there to report". Reporter knew they can't prove it was the vaccine that caused it. Reporter don't believe in coincidences. It seemed quite obvious to them it's related to the vaccine. Reporter appreciated all the help and stated they didn't have all the answers. Reporter sure it was the vaccine because it was within hours after the first vaccine, but since there was no information regarding the sight problems related to the vaccine patient didn't think about it. Then the floaters got worse and started to block his vision, after the 2nd vaccine it was dramatically; within hours it was worse. He's never been sick in 36 years (2021). Patient hoped no one else has to deal with what he has to deal with. Patient also reported that on 10Feb2021, patient had section of vision lost in the left eye. It was then reported that patient was well versed in the virus and the vaccine. He was unable to speak on the phone at this time as he was recovering from surgery. Patient received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine on 6Jan2021 and right away began seeing hundreds of floaters. He didn't correlate it to the vaccine but it didn't go away. Then he received the second dose of the vaccine on 29Jan2021 and within hours he thought he was going blind. He went to an optometrist 01Feb2021 who sloughed off the idea of it being related to the vaccine and diagnosed him with Posterior Vitreous Detachment. It was previously reported to Pfizer when he got the diagnosis of the PVD and all the events mentioned were previously reported. Reporter stated that from that day on the floaters got larger; the around 15Mar2021 he noticed every time he bent over he saw streaks of lightning; and he started to have a black hole, a loss of about 20% of his field of vision in the left eye. He went to another local optometrist 19Mar2021, who saw a large horseshoe tear in on left retina; and a detached left retina. The local optometrist sent him to a specialist and who verified the tear and the detachment and said the other retina in the right eye also has a small tear. Patient then had eye surgery, Monday at 0700AM, 22Mar2021 by outpatient surgery, to drain the fluid in his eye; insert a gas bubble and a silicone band to repair the retina; and did laser surgery on the tear. The specialist advised that the surgery damages the lens so he will need the lens replaced in the future. Now her patient has to lay down with his face down for 23 hours a day for two weeks and take 6-8 weeks off work. He had a doctor's visit yesterday and the doctor seemed satisfied with his progress but he can't see out of the eye, everything was cloudy so he doesn't know if the floaters are gone or the eye sight is recovered yet. The doctor was planning to do the right eye tear repair on Thursday 25Mar2021. Reporter had searched online to see if other people have this, but she can't seem to get the stories online about problems with the retina and the vaccine. She wanted this to be known and documented. Reporter was asking if company have information about if other people have had this. As per reporter, the events were not serious. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the events reported. The patient required physician's office visit for the events reported. The patient had not recovered from section of vision lost in the left eye, large left horseshoe tear on the retina in the left/tear on the right retina/small tear right eye, detached retina on the left, and floaters. The outcome of the other events reported was unknown.

I've had a mild tinnitus for about 5-6 years. 6-7 days after my first Pfizer shot, my tinnitus has become very bad. In the last week, twice I was awakened by it in the middle of the night and was not able to fall back to sleep because it is so loud. In the past, I never heard it during the day, but now it is very loud even in the daytime. This is very serious. Not being able to sleep and rest at night is very hard to cope during the day. I'm not sure what to do as there is no cure for this tinnitus.

Had no reaction at all to second shot until 4/29, while on a 4-hour airline flight. I thought it was just the plane noise or pressurization that was causing ringing in my ears. It came and went over the last 48 hours, but has been pretty consistently ?on? today. Went online to check tinnitus and vaccines and I see this has been reported by others. Hope it goes away soon!

Immediately after the injection I felt a warm sensation flowing through my body and my head felt warm but I did not have a temperature. This subsided within 20 minutes. Prior to the vaccination I had slight Tinnitus on a scale of 1-10 I would say it was a 2. I had no trouble sleeping at night and did not use any sound machines to mask the tinnitus. I would characterize myself as a great sleeper. About 48 hours after the vaccination in my left ear my Tinnitus went from a 2 to a 5. Now to sleep I must run a fan or noise machine to mask the tinnitus and sometimes have to take benadryl or Tylenol PM to sleep.

Per triage notes on 4/21/21: Pt had his 2nd COVID vaccine today at 0800. At 0900 developed lip swelling. Took two doses of Benadryl and has now developed chest tightness and throat swelling. Per doctor's notes: Patient is a very pleasant 60-year-old gentleman who comes in for evaluation after a possible allergic reaction today, possibly related to a second dose of Pfizer Covid vaccine that he got at 8 AM this morning. About an hour later he started to feel flushed. He felt like his face was warm and his ears were warm. He started to feel like the inside of his mouth had filled with a rubber ball. His tongue felt full and he started noticed progressively that he felt like he was having difficulty swallowing. States that he never actually had any lip swelling, contrary to the triage note, just felt funny in the interior of his mouth. Did feel like his tongue was slightly swollen, both based on the fact that it felt "thick" when he was talking, and on direct inspection, as well. Took 50 mg of Benadryl around the time that his symptoms started, and lay down to nap for a little while. When he woke up he was still feeling like he was having more difficulty swallowing. He also felt like his face was a little bit puffy, prickly under each eye. He also felt like he had a blotchy rash on his chest and upper back, which his wife corroborates. He felt like his chest was a little bit tight and that something was heavy on his chest, though he was not wheezing or acutely short of breath, per se. Took another 50 mg of Benadryl at about 2:15 PM, and presented to the emergency department for further evaluation. Currently still has a little bit of chest tightness and throat tightness. He feels flushed. Symptoms have not worsened, but they have not completely resolved, either. He has had anaphylaxis in the past and has had to be admitted to the hospital. And this was in relation to taking doxycycline, it sounds like. Patient presented again to the ED on 4/22/21 with the same symptoms. He was admitted with anaphylaxis. Per ED notes, also diagnosed with Angioedema, improved. Likely related to second covid vaccine. Cant rule out secondary to Lisinopril.

3 days later after receiving the vaccine, I started to feel a light facial numbness. I indurated for the next 3 or 4 days. On the 23rd of April, I was taken to the ER. The ER thought I was having a stroke. They did a lot of procedures. They determined there was not nerve or brain damage as to why I had facial numbness. All of the test I had proved nothing. They could not find anything. The facial palsy persisted. It has been identified as trigeminal neuralgia. I have been given many medications to deal with this facial numbness. I was given carbamazepine for facial numbness and then switched to pregabalin for trigeminal neuralgia. Sometimes its a pain and burning sensation down my cheek, underneath my cheek, and towards the nose. Sometimes above the eyebrow, my eyelid would twitch. The numbness is getting stronger, and it gets worse each week than the previous week before.

Then on an unknown date, left side will blur occurred. All events required emergency room visit and physician office visit. Diagnosis of Bell's Palsy and event eye tearing were serious per disability; left side will blur was non serious. Patient described the events as follows: on 31Dec2020 he was brushing teeth and noticed the water was going everywhere. Left side of face was sagging, noticed some swelling and thought it was from a bug bite. He wasn't sure if it was a stroke or not. In the morning of 01Jan2021 noticed it was progressively causing a problem. Days before noticed tearing of left eye (as reported). On 31Dec2020 before midnight, something felt wrong. He saw four cases on clinical trial with similar side effects (he clarified he had no patient information for the four patients mentioned with similar side effects from Pfizer Clinical trial. He saw this information from a article; stated four from Pfizer and Moderna). In the morning of 02Jan202, he went to Emergency Room (ER) and was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. He was given prednisone 20mg to take 3 times by mouth every day for 5 days, tetracycline 100mg, at 1 capsule by mouth twice a day for 10 days and methylprednisolone (SOLU MEDROL; Lot: 9945776;Exp: Nov2021) 4mg dose pack, started with 6 tablets first day. It was told by doctor it might cause tick problems. He was waiting for results. On 04Jan2021 went to family doctor and more blood work was taken.

Patient was checking sugar every 6 hours. It was also prescribed Acyclovir 400mg one tablet orally five times per day for 10 days. 08Jan2021 is last day of prednisone 5 day dose and will follow up with methylprednisolone tablets.

Could not work with eyes tearing all of the time. Needed to be alert. When driving, had to focus on the right side because his left side will blur. He had to chew only on the right side because food will be left behind in between his cheeks and gums. If he drank through a straw, he had to cover the left side of his lips so he was able to suck out fluids. He thought symptoms were progressively getting worse, he didn't see much improvement. He clarified swelling was on lower part of mandible on left side. It was slightly bigger than right. When looking at face, the lines on his forehead on the left side were down. If he smiled he cannot raise his left eye brow, when before the COVID-19 vaccine he could. Noticed left side of nose was lower than the right. Cannot raise left side of lips. Outcome of the event Eyes tearing and Bell's Palsy was not recovered; outcome of the other event was unknown. Information on the batch number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: Based on available information, a possible contributory role of the subject product, BNT162B2 vaccine, cannot be excluded for the reported events of Bell's palsy, Lacrimation increased and vision blurred due to temporal relationship. However, the Bell's palsy may likely possibly represent concurrent medical condition in this patient. There is limited information provided in this report. Additional information is needed to better assess the case, including complete medical history, diagnostics including head CT/MRI and viral serologies, counteractive treatment measures and concomitant medications. This case will be reassessed once additional information is available.

Last for the duration of the stress, a few seconds. Left eustachian tube slightly sore, slight earache. Has gone on for almost a week now. Best guess is nerve is pressured or damaged? Will try hydroxide in ear next, in hope it kills whatever's going on. Whether this will go away or not is unknown at present.

March 26, 2021: One week to the day after receiving my second dose of the Pfizer COVID19 vaccine, my right eye suddenly had double vision and facial pain behind the right eye and all around the right eye (forehead, right temple, around to under the right eye on the cheek). The right eye would not move correctly. March 27, 2021: I went to see Optometrist. He performed an eye exam with dilation and stated that the right eye was slow to track, and that the nerve behind the right eye was inflamed. He recommended blood work, CT scan, and an MRI. March 27, 2021 ? March 28, 2021: We went to ER at 9:00pm. After waiting six hours, I finally was able to see an ER doctor. No medical history was taken. No bloodwork was done. ER Dr performed a CT scan as Dr requested. CT scan w/o contrast showed no masses or hemorrhages. ER suggested to follow-up with Nuerology. March 29, 2021: Went to Neurologist and he examined me. He called in another Dr for a second opinion. They stated that it may be a possible cranial nerve palsy and ordered multiple MRIs. March 29, 2021: The earliest MRI appointment available was April 7, 2021. Scheduled the MRI. April 1, 2021: Had blood drawn at lab as Dr requested. April 2, 2021: Two weeks from the day of COVID19 vaccine #2, my right eyelid would not open at all and the pain was getting worse. April 5, 2021: Went to ER at 4:30am. Triage nurse sent me straight to an ER room and within minutes an ER doctor was there. Within 15 minutes after seeing the ER doctor, a Neurologist was examining me. The nuero doctor was very thorough. While waiting for the MRI, other neurologists and residents also examined me. MRI scans with and without contrast were performed. MRI images were clear ? no tumors, no aneurisms, and no stroke. They concluded that it was a micro-vascular injury to cranial nerve #3. (Similar to the Bells Palsy that I had in 2015.) They prescribed gabapentin to help calm the nerve pain. Follow-up will be with nuero-ophthalmologist.

I laid down on the sofa and must have passed out. 20 minutes later I began to come around but I was way weak and the heart beat was beginning to relax. The body pressure was present till 6pm I did not know what to do at that time other than take a nap. I was not able to eat any food until Saturday 6PM.

experienced hearing loss in his left ear/hearing loss on both ears; his right ear seems like there is water in there or it is underwater/left ear sounds like everything is echoing; immediately things were muffled; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 61-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in right upper arm on 27Apr2021 11:00 (Batch/Lot Number: EWO171; Expiration Date: Aug2021) as 1st dose, single for covid-19 immunization. Medical history including hearing was about 80 percent in the left ear/loss of 20-30 percent which started 10 years ago when the patient was 51. The patient has no concomitant medications. No additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect and no prior vaccinations within 4 weeks. After receiving a dose of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on 27Apr2021, the patient experienced hearing loss in his left ear, it was barely noticeable but today (04May2021 12:00) there was a dramatic shift and he experienced hearing loss on both ears, it was instantaneous. The patient wanted to know if there are any reports of hearing loss and when could it go away. He has a hearing issue in his left ear that he has had, his hearing was about 80 percent in the left ear and in the right ear it was a 100 percent. Today, at noon he has almost lost his hearing in his left ear and his right ear seems like there is water in there or it is underwater. His left ear sounds like everything is echoing but, he can hear the call handler just fine. His right ear was perfect and now it is messed up. He is worried about that. The patient wonders why that happened and why did they both go. He reported that the shot may have had something to do with it and if it does, what should he do or maybe he is just getting old. He cannot hear in the left ear much; he was just testing it while on hold listening to the music to see how much he had. He felt like there is water in it, not a little, a lot of water and it echoes a little bit and seemed like it's underwater. Started 10 years ago when he was 51, he lost 20-30 percent and it stopped as far as he could tell. He did not get checked out then because he could hear clearly. Today at 12 pm, and it was not gradual, it was like turning a light on, immediately things were muffled. Even when he was putting his hands over his ears, there was like an echo. He was on the phone with his wife at the time. He did not know what happened, so, he went to work, and nothing is changed. He told her something just happened to his ears. He thought of doing something in the meantime and not trying to wait for it to get better. Right ear feels like it is underwater, maybe the left ear is affecting the right the or the weaker ear is being affected more. The right ear is the stronger ear over the left ear. That is what bothering him. His weaker ear is being affected more than his good ear, which his right ear has always been the stronger ear and he never had problems before with his right ear. It was a dramatic switch today at 12pm and his ears have been that way ever since. The left ear feels like its underwater, so much even if he blocks that ear with his finger or his palm. Still there is something going on in both ears. He did not notice the right ear because the other ear was such a shock and he was just dealing with that. He noticed the right side too after trying to see if he could hear out of the left. He had no baseline to go off of for sure or a history. No baseline to go from other than this hearing change of event, which may be totally him. He wanted to see if there is anything related to this because it was so dramatic. The events were not treated. The outcome of the event "experienced hearing loss in his left ear/hearing loss on both ears" was not recovered while the other events were unknown. Information on Lot/Batch number was available. Additional information has been requested.

I was immediately confused about where I was at, when leaving the vaccination site. I immediately felt flush with red splotches on my face. I came home and took a nap just to sleep it off. I woke up with severe tinnitus, a headache, and brain fog. Both the tinnitus and headaches have only gotten worse. The flush feeling, (suspecting higher blood pressure than usual), comes and goes with more frequency as time goes by. The ?brain fog? has been more like brain damage. At first, I just couldn?t think. My ability to think has slowly improved, but it is no where near the same as my abilities prior to the vaccine. My memory has been impaired, both long term and short term. My hand/eye coordination has been impaired. Prior to the vaccine, I didn?t feel my age. After the vaccine I felt like I aged 25 years in a week. I need to figure out what is going on inside my head, and what can be done about it. The degeneration is a serious concern. Both in the severity of the adverse reactions, and in the permanence of the damage. This will be devastating if I?m entering early stages of dementia, decades before the course of natural causes of aging.

Second injection on a Friday. Starting Sunday, 4/18, I have had waxing and waning hives - most pronounced at night but also periodically throughout the day. I also had a swollen lip when I woke Tuesday morning, 4/20/21. The swollen lip returned to normal after about two hours and has not returned. I still have recurring hives that wax and wane throughout the day and at night. I do not consider the hives to be a heavy rash. They are itchy enough today that I took a Benadryl. I would have taken one last night, but I had to drive 3 hours to a funeral today. In addition, following the first vaccination (on 3/26/21), I had a swollen lip that night. I did not consider attributing any of the foregoing symptoms to the vaccine until I read about symptoms at about 2 am this morning. The fact sheet given to me when I got the vaccination really doesn't highlight the potential for a swollen lip or the onset of hives a couple days after the injection. I did not have any immediate reaction to the injection (i.e., none during the 15 minute waiting period following either shot).

The vaccine has aggravated a tinnitus condition that I have had for around 20 years. The perceived "volume" of the ringing in my ears became much louder. This began the day after the vaccine (1st shot), and I have delayed the 2nd shot, and I am considering foregoing the 2nd shot. The volume has increased considerably, and stays fairly constant from day-to-day. To date, I have not seen either my Physician or an ENT - both of which I will be doing soon. Disappointing annoying. I think this was a known issue and was not communicated.

Received 2 dose of Epinephrine during ED visit. 5/13/21 After Janssen vaccine he received at this morning around 8:10 AM. After that he had almost the exact same symptoms with a shooting pain in the left arm and neck some left hand tingling and swelling to the point where he can't get his wedding ring off and a sensation of pressure/tingling/fullness in the left side. Given Benadryl and steroids, initially there is no airway concerns or compromise. However after a period of time, he thought his voice was different. He did sound just slightly raspy, though I did question whether this could be related to dryness from the Benadryl. Regardless given that he did note a change, we opted to go ahead and give a dose of epinephrine, which did resolve his symptoms

31March2021 rec'd the 2nd Pfizer shot. Next morning 1April, multiple stripes of severe muscle pain from both ears, extending down the rear corners of neck across top of both shoulders to the shoulder joints. The 2nd set of severe pain was thin stripes of pain on the left & right sides of the spinal column from the neck to waist. The pain strips along spine disappeared in 3 days. The neck pain has continued to this day with varying intensity, sometimes random increases in pain. 7th of April 2021: Sudden onset of Covid like symptoms: extreme fatigue, extreme nausea, wild swings in perception of body temp from freezing cold which nothing warms me, to internal heat like a very high temp but not exhibiting any outward signs of fever. Felt like internal organs were heating up and nothing else like forehead or limbs etc. The symptoms of 7April2021 kept up for at least 2 weeks. No symptoms occurred together, each symptom came for varying lengths of time before subsiding and the next symptom surfaced. Towards the end of April the intensity of the symptoms was easing and eruptions were getting fewer with more time between. By end of May only the neck pain remained. BUT.... then the other symptoms reappeared in stronger form and still ongoing.

Did not connect adverse event to the vaccination until roughly three days after it was recognized. Had first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 on Friday, January 29, 2021. On the following Sunday or Monday (2 or 3 days post vaccination), I noticed ringing in my ears. I have always had perfect hearing, no issues whatsoever. I knew nothing about tinnitus, so just figured it would go away. Days later, it hadn't gone away so did some research and wondered if it could be associated with the vaccine. Searched the web, but found nothing. Considered calling a hearing specialist (long story so will keep it short), but all info found said there was little that could be done, so did not make the call. Since couldn't find relation to vaccine, received second dose on February 19, 2021 without any other issues. Tinnitus continues as originally noticed. Finally yesterday, I related the Covid vaccine to tinnitus after reading an article on J&J's vaccine candidate that stated tinnitus had been seen as an adverse reaction in the clinical trials.

20 minutes after injection shoulder area started to become number at the injection site. 35 minutes after the injection my neck and face started to become numb. As the numbness traveled from the injection site (left to right) across my neck and face, the numb areas became a "tingling" feeling on face, lips, chin and below the eye. Again traveling from left to right (the injection was in the left arm). Day two the above symptoms have lessened but have not gone away. Starting the same evening of the injection I experienced a progressively worse headache. As of 4/13/2021 I still have some numbness and tingling on the left side of my lower face between my cheek and chin. Headache is going away slowly.

Hours after receiving the 1st Pfizer covid vaccine shot I developed tinnitus in my head seemingly not coming from either ear but is a constant high frequency tone in my head. I still have this condition as of 4/15/2021 and plan to see an ENT but am skeptical he/she can do anything about it. It is not an ear infection where my hearing is reduced. Seems as though my hearing is normal or possibly better if anything. I am very healthy, exercising by biking 20 miles a day 3 times per week on average. I have no physical problems at all. Just this constant tone in my head which I am sure is the result of the vaccine shot. Please help!

Within 1 or 2 minutes after getting the vaccine I started to feel like the left side of my face was becoming flushed. Then I felt my face, and especially my lips, tingle; then I seemed to be having a neurological reaction--it was like the left side of my face was becoming numb. For the rest of the day, the left side of my face felt very different from the right-side. There was some pain around the temple. The next day, and even through today, 5 days later, the problem has been mainly around my eye. My eye often feels irritation when I blink and there is some muscular quivering of my lower eyelid. After speaking to my brother who is a radiologist he decided that it was unlikely to be an allergic reaction, and because the feeling of my face on the left side was reminiscent of the feeling I had a year ago when I had shingles around my left eye, he thought the reaction could very well be related to shingles. In other words, there was a activation of a response that resembled my shingles episode. This was bolstered by my speaking with my neighbor who also had the pfizer vaccine who said she had a very similar reaction affecting her face that lasted several days, and she,years before, had shingles on her face (as well as the shingles vaccine).

On 04Apr2021, he was taken to the emergency room and admitted to the hospital. They had been running test after test and can't seem to find anything wrong. The doctor thought that it was some kind of reaction to the vaccine. The patient was still running a high fever over 102 and was still experiencing fatigue and headaches on and off, and horrible chills and night sweats. The patient wanted to wait until the day after Easter to go to the hospital but started experiencing new symptoms. He was starting to experience blurred vision. Was then taken to the emergency room.

At the hospital, they kept giving him Tylenol to bring the fever down. He had been shaking like crazy. Had horrible chills and night sweats. He had no energy. He had not had the second dose. They cannot find anything else wrong. He was a health nut and run five miles a day. Took good care of himself. He seemed ok the first 2 weeks. Had been a week that he still can't break the fever. When looked up the symptoms, he had everything except for nausea. He also had blurred vision. They did a spinal tap, echocardiogram, EKG and blood work. He had seen 5 different doctors. The fever was highest at 103.7 and has consistently been over 102. With Tylenol, it had gone down to 99 or 100 but always shoots back up. 2 weeks after the shot, he took his temperature and wasn't feeling good all day. He stayed home from Wednesday until Sunday when he started experiencing new crazy vision symptoms. Stated that started Saturday. He was taken to the hospital on Easter and was admitted to the hospital, and was still there. The vision problem was new and it started to develop Saturday night. It was double vision, like looking in a fun house mirror. He still experienced the double and blurry vision now but only occasionally, when he tried to get up. It was on and off when he had to get up to go to the bathroom. He was still freezing and had shake and chills. He got night sweats and fever, chills, and did not feel like himself. The reporter didn't think he had high cholesterol or high blood pressure, diabetes, or anything like that. Tests: They did bloodwork, CT scans, MRI of the brain, echocardiogram, EKG, spinal tap. There were no white blood cells found in the spinal tap and that the echocardiogram was good. Everything came back normal. He had seen cardiologists, neurologists, gastroenterologists, primary care doctors, and no one can find anything. They did another kind of test regarding his vision. Her brother was depressed and wanted his energy back. It had been a whole week. The outcome of the events high fever (over 102, 103.7, 102.7, 99 or 100) and blurred vision was not recovered, outcome of the remaining events was unknown. The patient was hospitalized for high fever (over 102, 103.7, 102.7, 99 or 100) and blurred vision from 04Apr2021 to an unknown date. The reporter was not sure if this was happening because of the vaccine. Follow-up attempts are completed. No further information is expected. Information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

Two most recent crowns (One crown was about a year ago, the other was 5 months ago.) on two teeth on left side became very painful. Very similar to the same pain I experienced right after the crown was applied, with the exception that the pain would come and go. I would have no pain at all, then 5 minutes later the pain would increase to about a level 5. After about a half hour to an hour, the pain would subside. This would repeat many times a day. One week from the shot, I visited my dentist, but they didn't find any problems with the crowns. They gave me Amoxicillin thinking it may be an infection. I don't think it was because it was both of the teeth, one on top, one on the bottom at the exact same time. In the course of the next week the pain gradually subsided. Today it is almost completely gone and only on the most recent crown.

After getting the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, I just experienced arm soreness for the first 24 hours, but then I noticed my tinnitus which I had slightly for many years had become louder and constant. Right now I'd say it is a 3/10. My concern is that if I get the second dose that it will become even louder. My second dose was supposed to be today, but unless the tinnitus diminishes I do not want to risk a second shot for a 10-15% efficacy increase for Covid

They said it was a stroke (and it did show on an MRI the next day but sub-centimeter and I was told the size of a pinhead. AT the ER the double vision in my left eye and numbness in left lips, gum and tongue were already subsiding, but the DR there gave me a Plavix and within 5 minutes I was completely back to normal (or close). I am not sure IF that first dose of vaccine had anytrhing to do with this TIA, but it might have? I had also stopped taking my 81mg aspirin several days before this TIA as I had a Periodontal appointment for insertion of an implant post and wanted to control the possible bleeding. The thoughts of my Doctor at Hospital as well as the Neurologists was that the omission of the aspirin PROBABLY was the main cause of the temporary clotting that caused this event HOWEVER I did not tell them that I was 17 days post-Covid Pfizer vax #1 and so the possibility remains that the vaccine could have been partially the cause of this event? As listed previously, Dr at Hospital was my Doctor and might shed some light on this and her thoughts. I felt it was important enough to report as I have heard stories of all of the vaccines possibly causing some clotting and this might fit.

Since receiving a single dose of Pfizer-BioNTech three days ago on May 5, 2021, I now have Tinnitus as loud as the construction noise coming from a crew that's building a 3-story house 100 feet away from our home. Another comparison of the Tinnitus noise level I now experience is this: if you've ever boarded a jet from the tarmac while the jet's engines are running, that's the noise I hear now.

He was very thirsty and drank a lot of water (4 liters of bottled water). He was then urinating and sweating a lot as a way of his body trying to get rid of something in his body. He was urinating more than he normally does. He started getting harder for him to breath. He noticed he had a bad taste in his mouth similar to when he had the COVID virus. He got a horrible splitting headache/migraine type that kept coming and going. He still has the taste in his mouth, and it affected the taste of food. These were all symptoms similar to when he had COVID. The headache was worse than when he had the virus.

The first day, I was fine. The next day, I was fatigued. Over the weekend, I was very exhausted. I did not have any sweats or anything. Easter weekend, that's when it all hit. I woke up at midnight feeling ice cold to the point that I couldn't get up to get another blanket. I slept pretty much all day the next day. About a week or so later, I started noticed little red bumps on my ankles that itched. It then spread to my knees, elbows, and lower arms. That was towards the middle of April. I kind of ignored it. I began to wonder if I was having a reaction to the shot. I started hearing a ringing in my left ear and I am still experiencing that. My PCP told me to see a dermatologist after looking at the bumps because he didn't know. I saw the dermatologist on May 19, 2021. He told me to take Zyrtec 3xday. My PCP told me to take prednisone and it didn't do anything. I also saw an ENT on June 8, 2021. He did a hearing test and said there was some loss of hearing in my left ear. He put me on an extended period of prednisone. It did not make it go away in my case. I went back to see him about 2 weeks later. He recommended for me to have a cortisone injection into the ear drum or behind the ear drum. I decided not to do that. My PCP concurred with my decision. The red bumps are now sporadic. Every 3 or 4 days they show up. I think whatever is causing it is now moving through my system. I have noticed a change in my eye sight on the left side. I have a scheduled eye doctor appointment on July 6, 2021. I have noticed an all of a sudden difference in the last 6 weeks.

He provided the Feosol 325mg, NDC Number: 12451-10-17 (unsure if he provided the correct NDC), Lot Number: 201167, and Expiration Date: Jul2022. At around 2:30-3:00PM on 31Jan2021, he developed a rash on his hip and back, saying the hip and back rash were along the same pathway. He said he spoke to a PA (physician assistant) about his rash. He said on 31Jan2021 he had taken 1 oral dose of the Levaquin 250mg. He said the PA discontinued the oral Levaquin 250mg, and changed his prescription to Macrobid 100mg, twice a day, for 5 days. He said he started the Macrobid 100mg, twice a day, on Monday, 01Feb2021. He said he completed the Macrobid 100mg prescription on Sunday, 07Feb2021, and did not have the Macrobid 100mg NDC, Lot and Expiration Date. He clarified his rash was raised, oozy, and looked weird, like a pimple that came to head. He said he spoke to his dermatologist on a video call Sunday, 31Jan2021. He said his dermatologist told him he had shingles and prescribed Valtrex 1gram, three times a day, for 7-10 days. He stated the Valtrex 1gram was dispensed in a pharmacy bottle. He said he took his first Valtrex 1gram dose on Sunday evening, 31Jan2021, and was still taking the Valtrex 1gram as of today (08Feb2021). He had an appointment to see his dermatologist in person on Wednesday, 03Feb2021, but woke up with a wicked headache that morning, so he took paracetamol and went back to sleep. He said when he woke, he still had headache, and his left eye was totally blurry. He said back in Nov2020 he had fallen at work and landed on his left side, hitting his head and left knee. He said his fall left him with a knot on the left side of his head, and he had bleeding from above his left eyebrow, and had a left black eye. He said he also had a subarachnoid hemorrhage. He said he had a CT scan of his head that showed the subarachnoid hemorrhage was contained, so the doctors wanted to just monitor him. He said he was on Effient at the time and the doctors changed him to Plavix. He said he also was taking Aspirin 81mg. He said he was taken off of Plavix on 27Jan2021 when he was admitted to the hospital for having blood and blood clots in his urine. He said he continues to take the Aspirin 81mg daily. He clarified he has been on compensation since his fall in Nov2020. He said he also had cataract surgery 2 years ago. He said he immediately called his eye doctor, and then went to the hospital Emergency Room because he thought he had a stroke. He said the Emergency room did a CAT scan and CTA of his head, which were both normal. He said a neurologist saw him in the Emergency Room, and said since it was a headache with one eye blurriness, he should see his eye doctor. He said the neurologist told him if he had a headache and both eyes were blurry, it would more likely have been a stroke. He stated when he was discharged from the Emergency Room on 03Feb2020, he went directly to his eye doctor. He said his eye doctor did several tests: field of vision, a sonogram, pictures of his left eye, and a dilation of his eyes. He said he had an eye test where he looked at a half circle and clicked a counter when he saw dots, and another eye test where he stared at something that looked like a hot air balloon, while the eye doctor took measurements. He said the eye doctor also measured his eye pressure, which was normal. He said he was at his eye doctor's office for a good couple of hours. He said his eye doctor told him that he has little white dots on the background area of his eyes that indicates he has severe eye dryness. He said his left eye is much worse than right eye. He said his eye doctor asked him if he took Crack, or Cocaine, or any kind of opioids in the last few weeks. He said he told his doctor he took 1 dose of an opioid on 31Jan2021 because of the shingles pain. He clarified he had a Percocet prescription leftover from his hospitalization in Nov2020. He said he took another dose of the Percocet the week before 31Jan2021 for pain in his knee from the fall he had in Nov2020. He said his eye doctor told him his dry eyes could be caused by the Percocet. He said his eye doctor prescribed lubricating eye drops (Refresh Optive Mega 3, UPC Number: 0023577330, Lot Number: T095, and Expiration Date: Aug2022), that he is to use in both eyes every hour, and an eye ointment in his left eye only at bedtime. He had been using crutches when he walks because of the problem with his right knee since he fell in Nov2020. He said on 06Feb2021, he took a shower, and when he went to get out of the shower, his right leg gave out. He said he didn't fall, but he couldn't walk afterwards. He said he went to the Emergency Room on 06Feb2021, and an x-ray and sonogram were done of his right knee. He said he was told he had another soft tissue injury like he had when he fell back in Nov2020. He said he was given a leg immobilizer to use. He said when he first fell in Nov2020, he originally fell on his left knee. He said he has had PT since being discharged from the hospital on 17Nov2020. He said he also had a pacemaker implanted while he was in the hospital in Nov2020. He said after his discharge from the hospital on 17Nov2020, he went to take shower at home on 18Nov2020 and his left knee gave out. He said he was able to lower himself to the floor in the shower stall, but he couldn't get out of the shower stall. He said he was left sitting on his left leg and he couldn't use his right leg. He said he finally got himself to bed, and iced his right knee because he sat on it for over an hour. He said the next day (19Nov2020), he couldn't walk and had to have an ambulance take him to Emergency Room. He said he hasn't had PT since 27Jan2021, and needs clearance from his doctor before he can restart PT. He said he has been without PT for 2 weeks now. He said on 06Feb2021 he was unable to get a MRI on his knee because he had too much swelling that would have made the MRI imaging cloudy. On 06Feb2021 he was due for his second COVID-19 Vaccine, so before he was discharged from the Emergency Room he was given his second COVID-19 Vaccine dose. He was using the Refresh Optive Mega 3 eye drops constantly now. He said he had no fever, but is more tired than in the past. He said the last couple of days he can sleep for hours, and wake up and feel like he can go right back to sleep. He said he and his cardiologist are concerned because since 27Jan2021, he has only been on Aspirin 81mg. He said he has 3 cardiac stents since Oct2020, and should be on dual therapy. He said he had a CT of his abdomen and pelvis while he was in the hospital. He said he has been off of Plavix since 27Jan2021, and can restart the Plavix until he has a cystoscopy. He wants to know if UTIs in men are common after getting the COVID-19 Vaccine, so he can decide if he should cancel the cystoscopy and restart his Plavix. The second COVID-19 Vaccine Lot number as EL9261 or EI9261. He stated the vaccine lot number was handwritten on his COVID-19 Vaccine immunization card and was difficult to read the handwritten vaccine lot number. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included bacterial sepsis: gram negative urinary tract infection on 28Jan2021. Clarified he had no pain, burning, or urgency with the UTI. He said he was told by the hospital he had gram negative rods in his urine, when he was started on the IV Ceftriaxone on 29Jan2021. He stated he has never had a UTI before. Clarified his body temperature is rarely 98.6 degrees, and is normally 98.2 degrees and he had never had shingles before. He said he had chicken pox as a young adult, and he only had 1 spot of chicken pox. He had never had dry eyes before. Reporter seriousness for fever, UTI, injection site pain, injection site redness, injection site puffiness, rash, shingles were medically significant. For other events were unspecified. The outcome of event injection site pain, injection site redness, injection site puffiness was recovered on 31Jan2021, dry eye, tiredness was not recovered, while the outcomes of other events were unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on the temporal association and the known possible local reaction, a possible contributory role of BNT162B2 to the development of injection site pain, redness, and puffiness cannot be excluded. The other events are considered as due to underlying or intercurrent conditions and unrelated to the use of BNT162B2.

I received my first Pfizer vaccine on 3/9. This past Thursday, 3/18/21, I woke up with increased tinnitus (I?ve always had some) and hearing reduction in my right ear. It reminded me of a middle ear infection I had in my youth but this one had resulted in no pain, fever, or dizziness. I do not have a cold or any infectious respiratory issues. I found that it did resolve somewhat if I?d move to a higher elevation and as the day progressed. My left ear would have short spells that would eventually resolve. This continued through Sunday evening when my right ear cleared and I noticed a foul taste in my mouth. Today it?s resumed somewhat, not to the level it was at before, with a little congestion in my left ear...it "crackles" a little when I swallow, but often will clear if I yawn or cough. I did a little research about the Pfizer vaccine and this situation is listed as a possible side effect that is supposed to be reported, so I am doing so.

Approximately 6 hours after the vaccination, I experienced a severe tinnitus, or ringing in the left ear. I have never experience this level of ringing before, although I have had mild and mostly unnoticeable tinnitus for some time. This was many times more severe. While the intensity has settled down somewhat, I now have a constant, unremitting ringing in my left ear that is loud enough to be bothersome most of the day. It is still many times louder than anything I have experienced before. I had no other noise exposure or out-of-the-ordinary events that might trigger this.

Basically with the second shot I got all of the symptoms I had when I got covid in November. After the first shot I only got about half of these symptoms.

Concerned she took him to the hospital where he was assessed for stroke, TIA, all tests were negative. Consumer states, "my fiance was hospitalized over the weekend, we do feel it was exactly 30 days after second dose of Pfizer dose, from what I read in medical articles. I see that there were some cases of Palsy experienced by people in clinical trial. He is currently at home. He was in the hospital (emergency room)from 7am on 18Apr2021 and left at 3:50pm that same day against medical advise due to they did not have a neurologist. They wanted to admit him and transfer him to another facility because they didn't have a neurologist available. She clarified her fiance's adverse event as ptosis of his right eye. She said her fiance had diagnostics and blood work performed while at the Emergency Room. She said she wasn't positive if the blood work performed was a CBC and basic blood chemistry, but the blood work results were normal. She said the hospital she brought her fiance to did not have a neurologist on staff. She said the hospital wanted to admit and transfer her fiance to a specialized hospital with a neurologist on the premises. She said her fiance's condition did not worsen while at the Emergency Room, but she felt her fiance was not being monitored closely, and was not getting any care. She said since her fiance was not receiving anything at the Emergency Room, and the Emergency Room didn't have the bandwidth to address his issues, and nothing was done to transport him to another hospital, her fiance left the Emergency Room against medical advice (AMA). She said her fiance went to a neurologist on Monday (19Apr2021). Emergency Room Visit Treatment: Stated her fiance was given Oxycodone while at the Emergency Room. She said she did not know the Oxycodone dose, NDC, Lot, and Expiration Date. She said the Oxycodone was administered for leg pain (both legs) caused by a pre-existing condition her fiance had. She said her fiance normally took Ropinirole for his leg pain. Consumer reported her fiance had follow-up testing done at the neurologist on Monday (19Apr2021), and was waiting for the test results to come back. She clarified the neurologist was doing the follow-up testing to confirm or rule-out a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis. Consumer reported when she took her fiance to the Emergency room she thought he was going to be assessed for a possible TIA or stroke, but when it was mentioned her fiance may have Myasthenia Gravis, it was equally concerning. Neurologist Visit Treatment: She stated the neurologist prescribed Pyridostigmine 60mg on Monday (19Apr2021) for her fiance to start taking while the doctor waited for the blood work and repetitive nerve conduction study results to come back. She said the doctor's logic was to take the Pyridostigmine 60mg, and see if the ptosis resolved, and if the ptosis resolved the doctor would know the cause of the ptosis. She said her fiance's right eye ptosis had not improved, changed, or resolved since he started taking the Pyridostigmine 60mg. She said she did not have the Pyridostigmine 60mg NDC, Lot, and Expiration Date. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included blood gases (ABG): unknown on 18Apr2021, Vital capacity: normal on 18Apr2021, Blood test: unknown on 18Apr2021, COVID-19: negative on 18Apr2021; vital signs measurement: normal on 18Apr2021 .

About nine days after the first Pfizer vaccine I noticed a pain in my left tooth where is was difficult to chew. I thought perhaps it was a cracked tooth or abscess but it spread throughout my mouth making it painful to chew any food. It seems that the nerves above the teeth were somehow infected or something. I had pain around my eyes and once in my left ear. I suspected Sinusitis or something but was not sure as I had never had this happen before. I had my dentist look at it. The metal tapping tool showed no cracks. The xrays showed no tooth problems, nor any sign of sinus inflammation. I reported it to me doctor and he told me to report it on VAERS as a possible side effect of the vaccine. It was severe for about two weeks and has since returned to normal.

Tinnitus; Fatigue; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 64-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection), via an unspecified route of administration administered in left arm on 05Mar2021 at 11:20 (Lot number & expiry date were not reported) (at the age of 64-years-old) as 1st dose, single dose; then via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm (shoulder area) on 26Mar2021 at 10:30 (Lot number & expiry date were not reported) (at the age of 64-years-old) as 2nd dose, single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Vaccination facility type was reported as unknown and vaccine was not administered at military facility. No other vaccines given the same day and no problem with vaccines in past. There were no adverse events (AEs) following prior vaccinations. Medical history included ongoing multiple sclerosis (MS). History of all previous immunization with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect and family medical history relevant to AEs were reported as none. The patient's concomitant medications included Gabapentin and modafinil (PROVIGIL) from unspecified date and unknown if ongoing. The patient previously took interferon (unspecified) at 10mg. The doctor thought that since he has not had any relapse, he was okay not to take Interferon anymore. He wanted Pfizer to know he does have an auto-immune issue. He had used Interferon and then an oral medicine, but unable to provide NDC, Lot, or expiry for either product since it has been 3 years since he'd been on that. He did mention taking Gabapentin before bed and Provigil in the morning. The patient experienced tinnitus and fatigue on Mar2021 and ongoing. The patient reported side effects after the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine. He had the first dose on 05Mar2021 and second dose on 26Mar2021. After the first shot his tinnitus started and he was also fatigued. Patient clarified he didn't go to the doctor for the fatigue, but the tinnitus. He only mentioned the tinnitus. He also went to the doctor today and noticed since the vaccine and how ironic besides having the tinnitus how much more fatigue he has. He never took naps in the afternoon and now he does, he needs to. He is much more fatigued, and he even does yoga and notices his balance also. Before today's visit he had seen specialist, ENT (ear, nose, throat) doctor and told him the same thing and had asked if what he experienced was possible. He saw the ENT doctor on 31Mar2021 and was told he did not know if that was very common, but prescribed him steroids, which he took. He stated that with the steroids the tinnitus didn't get any better and he is not better now. He got ahold of his family provider recently to see if there was anything else that could be done like cleaning ears for wax or seeing if there was an infection, or something since he had no relief from the ENT visit. Later he clarified that steroids given by ENT was Prednisone 10mg tablets. He had 69 tablets and it was pretty strong and has used them all. He noticed the tinnitus maybe the week after getting the first dose. He didn't really think much about it, but it kept ongoing. This has been ongoing since after first and second shot. The event tinnitus did not require a visit to the Emergency Room but required a visit to Physician Office. Relevant tests done was unknown. The outcome of the events was not recovered. No follow-up attempts are completed; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

Shortness of Breath for few days after vaccine #1; after vaccine #2 shortness of breath increased along 10 day period, so I contacted PCP. Clinical exam, chest xray, blood work resulted D-Dimer level increase, so CT scan ordered. Result was lungs full of PE. Placed on Eliquis and referred to hematologist. Hematologist ordered deeper dive in blood work as well as echocardiogram, which displayed a widening in aortic root and ascending aorta, but no ventricular or valve damage. Dr. will continue to monitor and refer me to cardiologist. Other symptoms include unprovoked fatigue, some shortness of breath, a strange smell of burning plastic and cramping of the upper part of my feet, only at night. Never tested posit positive for COVID with wife and son both had "undocumented" COVID in January and March 2020. They both have antibodies (confirmed with blood testing) and I did not have antibodies. Our physician would not authorize a test for COVID at the time of their symptoms as tests were so coveted and not authorized widely at the times of their illnesses. I really want someone to come forward and confirm the causation and correlation of my symptoms to the vaccine, because I am otherwise an extremely health and active 64 year old with no preexisting or predisposed conditions to widespread PE...not just a clot or two...it is wide spread throughout all lobes of my lungs!

Immediately within two minutes, strange disoriented feeling, heavy sweating and weakness. Sitting down I lost vision in my right eye (just dark grey with a tiny blurry spot of light in the center). Left eye could not focus. After about twenty minutes, both eyes became very sensitive to light (like a pupil dilation test in an eye exam). This lasted about additional 10 minutes. I remained pretty weak for the next hour but was then ok. The next day I felt 100%.

The patient's medical history included COPD treated by CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure), high blood pressure, cancerous tumors removed from bladder, atrial fibrillation. The patient's history of all previous immunization with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect was none. The patient had no additional administered vaccines on same date with the Pfizer vaccine. The patient did not required any visit to emergency room or physician office. The patient had no loss of taste and smell within 4 weeks of prior vaccinations. The patient had no adverse events following prior vaccinations. The patient had no predisposing factors. No culture test was performed. The patient's concomitant medications included Eliquis (apixaban) taken for cardiac disorder from Feb2021 to an unspecified stop date; lisinopril and metoprolol tartrate for an unspecified indication. The patient called about the COVID-19 vaccine. The patient had his first COVID-19 vaccine on 17Mar2021. The patient had no issues with the first vaccine. About 2 weeks after the first dose received maybe around 01Apr2021, the patient started sneezing, having some phlegm, and coughing stuff up. The patient used a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine at night. Around 09Apr2021, the patient lost his taste and smell. The patient was scheduled for his second COVID-19 vaccine on 10Apr2021 but thought his symptoms were worse than the patient originally thought. The patient went to his doctor on 09Apr2021. The patient's doctor did the nasal swab for the COVID-19 virus. The patient never had a fever or chills. The patient's doctor gave him some erythromycin. The patient also did some blood tests. The patient's COVID-19 virus test came back negative. On the results of his blood tests on the first page, the first thing it says are that the patient's COVID-19 results were negative. The patient's doctor told him that the patient's body showed no response to the COVID-19 vaccine. The patient did not see that this blood test was testing for antibodies. Later in blood test paperwork the patient saw that it said antibodies not detected, does not preclude acute Sars-Cov-2 infection. The patient's paperwork said IgG and IgM were negative.

The patient took a nuclear stress test and that was ok and now the patient was wearing a heart monitor. The patient's reading from his blood test results. The patient's D-dimer result was 0.44. In the reference range it said anything less than 0.50 was a normal range. But the patient was taking Eliquis and his doctor told him his D-dimer should be zero. The patient's doctor told him his D dimer was elevated. The patient's doctor believed the first COVID-19 vaccine has something to do with his D-dimer result. The caller reports that the patient heard about the Johnson and Johnson vaccine and blood clots but he had not heard anything about Pfizer having problems with blood clots or anything of that nature. The patient now has his second COVID-19 vaccine scheduled for next day on 23Apr2021. The patient's follow up visit with his doctor was on 17Apr2021. The patient's doctor advised him to wait until mid May2021 and start all over with the COVID-19 vaccines but this time his doctor wants him to get the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The patient was not sure why his doctor was wanting him to stay away from Pfizer. Was there an indication that the patient was not aware of that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine would cause his D dimer to be elevated at 0.44. The patient was aware and there may be other factors that cause his D dimer to be elevated. The patient just wants to see if he can get his second COVID-19 vaccine. The patient just wants to get the vaccine and get on with his life. The patient would not get the vaccine if there was a known reason not to get it. The outcome of the events was unknown. No follow-up attempts are needed; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

Dr. performed the surgery. The night of April 7 I had searing pain in my right eye and a sort of migraine on my right side. Pain dissipated some the next day but came back intermittently. I went to on call that saturday, received an avastin injection and was told to come back Monday. I was diagnosed with acute glaucoma, had surgery on the 12th of may and was blind in my right eye for about a month while the blood in my eye was reduced by meds and drops. It is still not back to normal, but I can see from the eye.

I developed vision abberations such that when i focus or concentrate (e.g. reading a book or computer screen) my vision would 'jump' or 'blink' or flicker causing me to not follow words I had been reading. Very clearly concentration of attention driven. This condition came on slowly. It took weeks after injections for the symptoms to develop. They remain. And seem to be getting more severe. My opthamologist has refered me to a neuroopthamologist. I can not think of any other causative factor in the last years, month, and weeks that could account for what I am experiencing. I have had NO illnesses. I have not had Covid-19 to the best of my knowledge. (Note: date & time given for #5 above is approximate)

Pronounced change in taste/smell. These senses were not lost, but changed in pronounced ways. Foods commonly left bad (metallic) aftertaste in mouth, and highly spiced foods sometimes caused either immediate sneezing (as in allergies) or gut discomfort. During this period I noticed episodes of sinus and/or ear infections. The symptoms started around the time of first injection, although I did not recognize them as a pattern for some time. The strength of the symptoms fluctuate in time. 3.5 months after the 1st injection it seems that taste/smell is becoming more normal, although there may be some residual, fluctuating symptoms.

A 64-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINATION; lot number: ENG206), via an unspecified route of administration in right arm, on 17Mar2021 at 13:00 as dose 2, single for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included heart attack from 1994, left side kidney removed in 2015 and single functional kidney on right side from 2015. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported.

The patient previously took (UBRELVY) for migraine and visual distortion. The patient had a headache and stiff neck really for no apparent reason and they continued. Then he noticed that his peripheral vision and vision was bad with visual distortion in Mar2021. He called his primary care provider and told him about this, and he was prescribed a steroid pack and for 2 months he was provided a muscle relaxer to help. They provided some relief but didn't get rid of it. Believes the steroid was a Zpack for inflammation and was unable to provide the name of the muscle relaxer or the NDC, Lot, or expiry for either Zpack or muscle relaxer given. Eventually, they continued and after he had the visual distortion, he went to an eye doctor to make sure nothing was wrong like a tumor that was causing the headaches or stiff neck. Eye doctor told him nothing wrong with his eyes and they were fine, not tumor, he just had migraines and he never had migraines before. He saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with migraines. On the first neurology appointment, they gave him an injection in the stomach, but he does not know the name of it. The second visit was given shots in the back of head and back of neck. On that next visit, he got a shot in the stomach and most of it was quiet down with the migraines and the visual distortion and he still had them. The patient was then given a drug to take to help when they flared up, for break through migraines in 2021. It was 100mg. He was given the free ones and he could only take up to 10 in a month. He was given 4 of them and only had to use 2 of them and the migraines and visual distortion has gone away. Provides NDC, lot number 1843724 and expiry of Jul2022. He started this in Apr2021 or in May2021 after his first visit with neurologist, (withheld). During the same time, he had the migraines and also started having pains in his upper thighs, felt like in his muscles. States imagine little bubbles like they are going to pop was how it felt in 2021. They went away and stopped. He then started to have back stuff, pains that started in Mar2021 or Apr2021. They stopped after 7-8 days later and then they were gone. He was then sent to a nerve specialist and they did a conduction nerve test to see if what happened affected his nerves and the test was fine. Then all of a sudden, after one thing happened and went away another one would start and then his lower back got so painful so that he could hardly walk and went to an orthopedist thinking it could be a pinched nerve in 2021. They did x-rays but could not see anything that caused this kind of pain. They didn't give him anything, but 7 days after that he was fine ever since, and it just went away. He also had pains in the upper arms that felt like someone was giving him shots at the same time in both arms and also a kind that hurts and stays hurting. Felt like they didn't pull out the needle, like someone was pressing the needle in the arm, directly in the area you are getting a shot, but this feeling lasted much longer. Had this very same feeling in the top of both shoulders and they were intermittent. One minute he would have them and the next they could last about 5 minutes, or it could be gone for 5 hours and show up again in 5 minutes. It was not consistent and happen every hour. This also resolved in May2021 along with the migraines. Patient had pains at top of shoulders fell in line with his neck, where the soft spot between the collar bone is which was like getting a shot in his arm. Again, he no longer has these symptoms and no problems with vaccines in the past. Provides he had second dose on 17Mar2021 in left arm and lot number of ENG206. No further details provided. Started in the beginning of Jun probably, it's been about two and half weeks. He had not been able to use his hands. They are numb, tingling, feel swollen, he can't bend them or hold things for maybe a couple of minutes. He can't grip anything in Jun2021 and also got worsened in 2021. Extending from the tip of his fingers all the way up to the shoulders, in his left arm especially causes the wrist to hurt in Jun2021. It hurts all up to the left shoulder. In the right arm it only goes up to the bicep and these have gotten worse and are continuing to get worse. The patient was given tramadol for that pain and unable to provide NDC, Lot, or expiry from orange pharmacy for tramadol bottle. He takes 50mg, 1-2 tablets by mouth four times daily. It was prescribed 16Jun2021 and expires 16Jun2022. These pain pills help some, it takes the pain away, but does not allow him to grip with his hands or anything else. Now it may sound crazy, but when he coughed it would make him feel like the inside of his biceps were going to explode. It went away and only lasted a week. After a week this went away, but to touch it hurts after he coughed. Still had tenderness in both sides in the muscles, but at that time it felt like they were exploding outwards. Again, mentions he no longer has this. His feet are swollen up and he has never had that before now. Went back to see his heart doctor. He had gone to have a Covid test and heart test in Jan2021. With the swelling in the feet, he felt it had something to do with the heart and he went to see the cardiologist where they asked about testing which was done by primary care provider and also had antinuclear antibody testing done with primary care and that test came back with no arthritis in the hands on an unknown date. The patient mentioned he had a heart attack at age 38 before he had COVID vaccine, since he is 64 now. He didn't have any chest pains and didn't fall under those heart symptom questions asked. None had anything to do with his heart and the provider felt symptoms probably due to with the vaccine, but there is not enough information out there on it yet. He saw about 6 specialist and they all say the same thing. The patient still had his feet and hands swelling.

Received first dose vaccine, a day later all the typical side effects of flu like symptoms occurred: The caller states this occurred after the patient received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The symptoms have gone away after the third day. The caller has not asked the specific question if the patient recovered with lasting effects or recovered completely and does not know. Had to get up in the middle of the night to raise arms because couldnot breathe: When asked when this began the caller states her brother must have had the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine on Friday, 09Jul2021, or it could have been Thursday, 08Jul2021.

The caller is not sure and has heard so many different reports. Causality: When asked causality for each symptom, the caller replies, she certainly thinks the flu like symptoms are related to the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The caller does believe something must have happened to cause his condition to spiral down hill. The patient had some symptoms prior to receiving the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine but these were all manageable and not a problem. The caller doesn't know if the patient having the flu like symptoms may have put extra stress on the patient's heart.

It was either 08Jul2021 or 09Jul2021. ~ Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.; Sender's Comments: Based on known drug safety profile, there is reasonable possibility of causal association between the event headache, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain and the suspect drug BNT162B2.

No event did require a visit to Emergency Room or Physician Office. No relevant tests performed. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of chills, fever, general malaise, low grade headache, sweating. Course of events: He said initially he had no adverse events after receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine, except injection site pain. He said he thought the injection site pain could be from the COVID-19 Vaccine being viscous, and didn't think anything else about the injection site pain. On 03Jan2021 he started to experience some. He stated he did not normally take vaccines, like the flu vaccine. He said he has been a podiatrist for 39 years, and realized the importance of getting the vaccine to protect his patients. He then developed chills, muscle pain, fever, and general malaise. He said he experienced every side effect listed on the received COVID-19 Vaccine paperwork, except he had no lymphadenopathy. He said all the side effects he experienced appeared 24 hours to the minute from when he received the COVID-19 Vaccine. On 03Jan2021, he had swelling in his cheeks and around his eyes. He did not get sick often. He said he had a rough night on 03Jan2021 and on 03Jan2021 he still felt wiped out. Treatment: he took 2 Tylenol 325mg at the start of the side effects, and then took another 2 Tylenol 325mg at 2:00AM. He said he woke up soaking wet with chills and sweats. He said his fever broke, but he did not know how high his fever was. He took from a fresh bottle of Tylenol 325mg. The outcome of injection site pain, cheek swelling, periorbital swelling/swelling around his eyes, feeling wiped out, muscle pain, joint pain, general malaise was recovering, of chills, fever, sweating was recovered in Jan2021, of low grade headache was not recovered.

Previous to Pfizer vaccines I had chronic tinnitus with mild symptoms. I'm a retired dentist. I wasn't aware of any changes in my tinnitus after the 1st vaccine. But after the 2nd vaccine I noticed a definite profound increase in my tinnitus. It is now on the verge of being debilitating in nature. It is now pulsating and much louder, very difficult to ignore even during day time activities. Before my tinnitus was bilaterally equal, now I would say my right ear is louder than my left. But both are louder than before. Today marks about 50 days since 2nd vaccine, and I think its actually getting progressively worse! Hopefully this is not permanent.

Starting on or about 4/5/21 severe headache that I treated as a sinus infection from seasonal allergies. Stayed inside. stopped smoking (marijuana), nasal mist. Very dry sinuses and eyes especially the left eye. The pain proceeded to worsen and I rinsed my sinuses with nasal mist which eventually relieved the pain. At one point during the rinsing I had a short flow of blood from my sinuses. I used eye drops for the dryness in my eyes. I had occasional pain in my legs during the week of the 5th followed by extreme back and leg pain on the 11th. This pain and spasms mainly effected regions where I have had long term weakness. I still have minor pain as is typical.
