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.

I would like to start out by saying that I am well aware that this vaccine is known to cause side effects and that the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any side effects induced by it. The reason I am writing this is to provide information that you all can keep in mind as you provide guidance on your recommendations for the timing of when the vaccine should be administered to those who have already tested positive for COVID. I tested positive for COVID-19 11 days prior to getting vaccinated. My symptoms from the virus began on 12/21/20, lasted until 12/26/20 and included: mild headache, fever of 100.3, moderate muscle fatigue, lymphadenopathy, and sinus congestion. I received the Pfizer vaccine on 1/3/21 at 11am and by 2am on 1/4/21 I was experiencing a temperature of 102.5, severe headache, severe muscle fatigue, and painful right axillary lymphadenopathy. Although they had almost completely resolved by 11am on 1/4/20, I would describe these side effects to the vaccine as significantly worse than the symptoms of the virus itself. As someone who has a stronger medical background than the general public (I am a 4th year dental student in a patient-facing role and was encouraged by my school to receive the vaccine despite already testing positive), I understood the likelihood of developing side effects to the vaccine and I am still planning on receiving my second dose in three weeks despite already showing clear signs of a strong immune response to the proteins created by the vaccine. The reason why I am writing this is because there was no guidance on recommending that I wait longer than 10 days between testing positive and receiving the vaccine and I am worried that if the general public is allowed to receive the vaccine at this same time interval, there will be a significant number of people who will have similar side effects (worse than those induced by the virus itself) and they will not only refuse a second dose, but could also vocally discourage many people from trusting the vaccine?s safety and benefit. I obviously don?t know what minimum timeframe should be recommended, but from my individual experience, 11 days was not sufficient. I will be happy to follow up if you would like to know how the symptoms fare after my second dose.

The patient's past product use included adrenaline (EPIPEN), an unspecified corticosteroid and an unspecified antihistamine for past allergic reactions. The vaccine was administered in a hospital. Prior to the vaccination, the patient had not been diagnosed with COVID-19. Concomitant medications included ciclosportin (RESTASIS), azelastine (AZELASTINE), mometasone furoate (FLONASE), cetirizine hydrochloride (ZYRTEC) and omeprazole (PROTONIX) all for unknown indications from unknown dates and unknown if ongoing. Within four weeks prior to the vaccination the patient had received unspecified "allergy shots" He received "two shots" (one in each deltoid) on 15Dec2021 and "two shots" (one in each deltoid) on 05Jan2021. The patient reported that fifteen to thirty seconds after the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination he felt lightheaded and a little short of breath. This lasted about eight minutes and then subsided. Approximately thirty to forty minutes (about 30 minutes after he left the facility) later the symptoms returned. He felt short of breath and he thought he was going to pass out. The symptoms included fatigue, shortness of breath lightheaded and feeling like passing out on and off for the next two to three hours. He stated he has completely recovered.

He also stated that experienced shortness of breath and chest tightness after his allergy shots on 26Jan2021 and he specified that he had never before had these reactions to his allergy shots. After that he had yet another possible allergic reaction after eating pizza on 30Jan which included throat swelling as well. He further stated that on 04Feb he had anaphylaxis vs asthma exacerbation. On the following day he developed a heaviness to his left occipital head with that same feeling of wanting to lose control of his muscles. He never had that before.

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

I've been experiencing mild, but consistent adverse side effects to the vaccine. This vaccine. Is completely Terroristic. This vaccine is a biological warfare. I've been very active in obtaining vaccinations. Flu shots, up to date with tetanus, and obtaining a second Immunization for chicken pox because I actually received the chicken, but had no vaccination. And. I need the vaccination record for school. So I had to get the chicken pox vaccine. I've been having mild, but very uncomfortable and consistent headaches. My sinuses all over my face are so filled. My eyes are watery, turn red, and at time so painful that it's difficult to open them. I have muscle weakness. I'm always so thirty all the time. My urine smells like uric acid. Has a rancid toxic smell to it. And. My urine is clear. But smells. My skin feels silky. And. the perspiration from my body, smells like formaldehyde. Smells clean, but smells like toxic formaldehyde and dead sticky body residue. The most uncomfortable is the partial blindness. Headaches. Muscle aches. Joint aches. Neck pains. Eye pains. The consistent thirst. I can't go to the doctor because I don't have insure. But. Most importantly. I don't have employment, because of the Government's illegal employment system that accounts for me. I've been unemployed for 6 years. And. Have a private college degree from one of the top Universities in the USA. Also. I've been very active in producing sputum. Flem. My neck is swollen. And parts of my body are swollen. Not severely. But you can see there is minor swelling. All the symptoms I'm disclosing in this report, are minor. But. When collectively experienced. Is unbarable. Extremely Uncomfortable. And. You're expecting me to get another dosage of this experience. Being. 2 months incapacitated. This is even illegally distributed. What the hell. In God's name. Are you people in there doing. And. Why are you people in the Government even able to get away with this.

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

Moderate aches experienced on the day following vaccination (5/23) beginning in the morning. Two doses of ibuprofen taken in the morning and afternoon. Mild pain experienced in left front armpit, nearly on the left pectoral, on the night following vaccination. On the following morning (5/24), moderate swelling was noticed in the left armpit, extending from underneath the armpit down to the upper lat muscles and up along the left pectoral nearly to the nipple up to just below the left collarbone. Mild pain experienced in the left front armpit as well as on the lymph node under the armpit. No inhibition of arm motion or pain when using arm, but some feeling of discomfort and pressure. Tele-med help was sought which did not recommend any course of action. By the afternoon, moderate swelling was noticed on the left arm, on the bicep and tricep down to the elbow. Ibuprofen was taken at ~3pm with no effect. Medical advice was sought at 7pm and it was recommended to head to urgent care, but all providers in the area were closed.

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.

Aside from the expected soreness in the arm and short lived fevers, I started to develop painful swelling and hard lumps in my lymph of the same armpit as my injection site. It was quite painful and broke out into a puss-tipped rash and continued to get worse. It has been over 20 days now and instead of getting better, it has spread to my other armpit now. I went to the local advanced urgent care clinic who ran some bloodwork and said my white cell count is normal and non-indicative of lymphoma, so I was put on prednisone and doxycycline. The medication has done next to nothing and I was told that there was nothing else they could do. The pain in the arm varies per day but there are some days where it is too painful to use my arms at all.

took him a half an hour just to get out of bed; Tightness to left trapezius and left side of neck, same side as vaccine; increased pain and decreased range of motion to his neck; increased pain and decreased range of motion to his neck; inflammatory infectious process with atypical organisms; Lymphadenopathy/ compressing the nerves in his neck and causing his pain and decreased range of motion; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse (patient). A 30-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE lot number: ER8730) via an unspecified route of administration, administered on the left arm on 31Mar2021 15:00 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing hypothyroid. Concomitant medication included levothyroxine sodium taken for hypothyroid. The patient previously received tetanus vaccine (6 weeks out from his Covid Vaccine) with no adverse events. Patient stated that his side effects began on 01Apr2021. He noticed tightness to left trapezius and left side of neck. This was the same side of the body he got the vaccine on. His symptoms worsened over the next two days. He had increased pain and decreased range of motion to his neck. On Saturday 03Apr2021. it took him a half an hour just to get out of bed. Stated that he went to the Emergency Room at the hospital where he works and they did a series of tests. He had CAT Scans with and without contrast, a MRI, and an Ultrasound. Mentioned later that they also did blood work (Apr2021). The Emergency Room doctor told the caller he was going to have his CAT scan read by a specialist. Caller stated they called him on Sunday 04Apr2021 and said his CAT scan showed an inflammatory infectious process with atypical organisms and Lymphadenopathy. He stated that he read that Lymphadenopathy was a side effect of the vaccine. They told him that the Lymphadenopathy was compressing the nerves in his neck and causing his pain and decreased range of motion. He had been on a week of treatment consisting of pain medications, muscle relaxers, and anti-inflammatory medications. The Infectious Disease was consulted and he was started on a 5 day course of Azithromycin. He was on the third day of this antibiotic per his report. He has a follow up MRI scheduled next Friday. He was calling to report his side effects and also to ask about what he should do in regards to his appointment for his second dose of the vaccination. His symptoms were worsening for the first three days. Since he has been being treated for them they have started to improve slowly day by day. Today he said there was minimal pain and tightness but he was still not back to one hundred percent. He was offered admission to the hospital for pain control after his emergency room visit but he decided to defer it to an outpatient setting. Was not admitted to the hospital. The patient felt that the events 'tightness to left trapezius and left side of neck, same side as vaccine'; 'increased pain and decreased range of motion to his neck' were medically significant and stated they were disabling, at least temporarily. There were no additional vaccines administered on same date of Pfizer suspect. Outcome of the events 'tightness to left trapezius and left side of neck, same side as vaccine'; 'increased pain and decreased range of motion to his neck' was recovering while unknown for the other events. Patient stated that he felt all of his adverse events were caused by the COVID Vaccination he received.; Sender's Comments: A contributory role of BNT162B2 to reported events cannot be excluded based on the temporal relationship. Case will be reassessed if additional information is received. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified.

I had the vaccine on 06/22/2021. What brought me in was nasal congestion, ear pain, no fever, sore throat, runny nose and a little bit of chest tightness. I went to urgent care the following day on 06/23/2021, I went to get a Covid test that day and it was negative. Basically, they said my ears looked fine, my lungs sounded fine, my throat seemed a little bit red but was fine. They said to come back if the symptoms persisted. I was getting progressively worse through out the week to where my throat was in pain, I started taking allergy medicine and that did not impacted my symptoms. After several days of getting progressively worse, on 06/27/21 I went back and they told me I had swollen lymph nodes under my jaw and a lot of fluid in my right ear which was causing the ear pain but my lungs sounded fine but my sore throat was extremely red. She felt that it was probably not related to the vaccine because of how far it was from when I got it. She prescribed Erythromycin thinking it was a bacterial infection. I been on the course on that since Sunday. I am definitely improving but I am still pretty well congested but my ear pain has resolved.

The patient's medical history and concomitant medications was reported as none. The patient experienced swelling in left arm/thumb and numbness from tip of thumb to joint on opposite limb of administration. Since Wednesday, 23Dec2020, he has been experiencing some numbness in the arm opposite of where the vaccine was administered. He clarifies the vaccine was administered in the deltoid of his right arm, and the numbness he is experiencing is in his left hand. His thumb has been partially numb since last Wednesday. He got a little bit of tingling in his left arm since last Wednesday (23Dec2020).The patient explains on Tuesday, 22Dec2020, when he was administered the vaccine he only had typical side effects that went away within 24 hours. He experienced headache and muscle soreness in the arm the vaccine was administered. Both of these symptoms went away and he has recovered completely. After 24-36 hours, he noticed numbness on hand opposite of the arm where the vaccine was administered. His thumb has been partially numb which has lasted about 6 days. He clarifies the numbness is on the palm side- which he was told was not related to the nerve. His thumb looks swollen and inflamed compared to the other. He also has noticed muscle weakness in the opposite arm. The patient states he can't recall if the numbness occurred within 24 hours but he knows by 24 hours, he did have the numbness. His thumb is partially numb on the side of the palm and up to the middle of his thumb where the joint is.Patient states yesterday the numbness was noticeably worse when he was sleeping. However, today the numbness seems to be back where it was before. He forgets about the numbness since he is not actively doing anything with that particular hand, but he doesn't forget about it completely. The numbness hasn't improved any, it's been consistently there and never went away. While reading off of his card, the patient cannot determine if the Lot number is an F or an E because the number is underlined. He thinks it might be an E. Patient was able to confirm the Lot number begins with an E after looking at the information sheet he was provided. He also sees the product number, CVX 208. Patient states he has no allergic reactions and nothing that he knows of that is an underlying condition. Patient states he hasn't had any testing done in regards to these events. He wanted to talk to the manufacturer and report it to the (Contact center name) first before he schedules something at Urgent Care. He wanted to check and see if what he is experiencing is a lesser known symptom. He couldn't find this information anywhere. The outcome of events, headache and muscle soreness was recovered on 23Dec2020. The outcome of Numbness in hand was not recovered. The outcome of other events was unknown. No follow-up attempts are possible; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

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

He had a fever of 103.1 degrees Fahrenheit, body aches, chills like he was freezing to death, fatigue, diarrhea; however, he did not have nausea or loss of taste or smell. He had swollen lymph nodes, but no sore throat and his oxygen saturation was okay in Jan2021. He was also having chest pain but it was more like intercoastal pain. He stated that these current symptoms were significantly worse than the ones he had just after getting the vaccine and felt more like the symptoms he had when he had COVID-19 before on 10Jun2020 (positive IgG for COVID-19-tested in 2020). The patient had a COVID nasal swab (PCR) done at an urgent care (physician's office) on 02Jan2020 or 03Jan2020 and was awaiting the results. The clinical outcome of the suspected COVID-19 was not recovered.; Sender's Comments: A causal association between reported suspected COVID-19 cannot be excluded.

About two weeks after first shot, I got shingles. It could be unrelated, but since I'm young, perfectly healthy, not abnormally stressed, and haven't ever had singles before, I thought there might be a chance it is related. I've seen online other young people who are saying that they got shingles after the first shot of Moderna or Pfizer. Maybe it was just a coincidence, but I figured it was worth reporting. It is overall a pretty mild case because I got on the antiviral drugs pretty quickly. Wondering if I should still get my second shot on schedule or wait until my shingles is all cleared. I have asked my doctor and am awaiting a response. I first noticed the symptoms on Saturday (3/20) exactly two weeks after my first shot.

My wife also did not get any of these itchy bumps in spite of sharing a bed. It may be worth noting that my wife got shingles 10 days after receiving the 1st Pfizer dose.

I received the first covid vaccination in May 5th and a week or so later started getting tingling in my toes that would come and go. I did not tie it to the vaccine at first as it was not a listed side effect I saw. On 5/26/2021 I received the second shot and the tingling spread to more of my toes, and then into my hands a few days later. After another few days my legs became very weak and I went into the Emergency Room where they diagnosed me with Guillain-Barre and my symptoms continued to worsen where I lost all my reflexes and ability to walk as usual

I started having radicular tingling with neck flexion that ran down my left leg starting at the beginning of February. I noted it to a colleague and asked if anyone else who had received the vaccine at the same time as me had any similar effects. I was the only person noted. Slowly the tingling increased and began radiating the entire length of the left leg. It only last for a few seconds at the beginning of flexion then completely resolved. I did not think much of this at the time and figured that it would resolve. On February 27, I began having visual disturbances and symptoms similar to vertigo with a severe nystagmus with a gaze the the right. I attempted a round of azithromycin at this time thinking that there may be an ear infection and that was causing my visual/vertigo like symptoms. There was no improvement with this course of treatment and the visual issues were becoming more of a regular issue. It became hard for me to focus anytime that I would look to my right but was able to focus my eyes while looking forward and the the left. At this time, I opted to have a brain MRI done which was completed on Match 9th as well as having basic labs run. I ended up with an elevated white count on my labs with a left shift. My MRI was read the same day showing a demyelinating process. Multiple neurologist were consulted on this and they believe that my symptoms are not related to MS as the radiologist listed as his top three on his differential but rather what they called post-covid vaccine syndrome, similar to what they are seeing with patients who actually had COVID. I have no medical history, I am not taking any medications and had no symptoms prior to the vaccine. My symptoms were acutely brought on unlike MS and I do not have any of the four most common male characteristics of MS. I do not currently have any muscle weakness, I am not fatigued, it has not progressed to my upper extremities, it does not have a stalking glove approach but rather shoots down, I have no sexual dysfunction. I have been started on a high dose prednisone taper as recommended by the neurologist. My biggest concern is that when I looked for information as a medical provider, I was unable to find anything related to neurological issues and the vaccine. Once, I was placed in contact with multiple neurologist, I was told that they are seen quite a few neurological adverse events.

I got shingles about one month after the second dose. I had severe pain around my spine and back on Friday (4/23/2021) and by the next morning developed red bumps on the left side of my nose that I at first mistook for acne. They produced a very tiny amount of white liquid secretion. The bumps turned darker and I got a red rash on the left side of my nose. The left side of my face as well as the lymph nodes around my collar area swelled up. By Tuesday morning, it spread to my left eye, so I went to the ER where they started me on two new antibiotics. After none of the antibiotics worked, I started an antiviral (acyclovir) and antiviral eye drops and started to improve. The rash and swelling reduced and no new blisters have formed. The doctor and I both thought it likely I had shingles.

My entire world has unraveled since getting this shot. Been to 4 ERs for systemic inflammation and neurological symptoms. Written off a psycho and about to be committed, but was brilliant. I believe I was given an undiluted dose of Pfizer without diluent, and became psychotic, and furthermore I believe my parents, who also got it, have had their judgement affected as well. They have been a lot less urgent with concern for their welfare of me since the shot. All they do is sleep all the time, wouldn't take me to the ER even when I was having trouble reading and staggering around. I understand I have no credibility here, but please look into this matter seriously, and not just the ravings of a crazy person.

"I took the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Saturday 17APR2021. I got a severe reaction from the Pfizer vaccine. I got the normal chills the next day and flu symptoms. From the next day to day 5 I got severe headaches, strong pain in my head, my left arm and left eye. I took Tylenol and ibuprofen within those days. The Tylenol didn't help at all, ibuprofen 200mg didn't do much. Yesterday I went to the ER because I had light pressure during the morning in my head not as severe as the other days, in the afternoon I had a tight pressure in my head so I took 2 tablets of extra strength Tylenol, the headache went away but within an hour I had a bad reaction. My whole body turned red, bumps, itchy. It was bad. It was bizarre because I've never had reaction to Tylenol prior. I never had that before yesterday. It was the first time. They gave me a shot of steroids. The doctor didn't know if it was a bad reaction to the Pfizer reaction (said it would usually occur within 4 hours of getting the vaccine) or the mix of the Tylenol and the pfizer vaccine together. He had no clue. But he had not seen a reaction of the vaccine at 5 days later. He said I could have reacted late, or the Tylenol and Pfizer vaccine together had a bad reaction. I had covid late Jan of this year. The vaccine more interaction due to that if I had immunity to it. It was so bad I don't know if it's possible to wait 2 months for the 2nd shot. I heard the first dose 80-90 percent immunity or even more. With my body I never had this reaction. Today I'm a whole lot better (day 6). I am too putting too much, should I wait 90 days other say 4 weeks. What to do about the 2nd dose? How about using antihistamines during/after my second dose? What about Tylenol or Ibuprofen?" I had a side effect after the first dose of the vaccine. Should I get the second dose? e-transmitting potential duplicate AE. Caller said he didn't give PCP information to the safety agent. He did not have. Response: Spoke from EUA PI (Revised: 06 April 2021) under Post Authorization Experience Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers (Revised: 06 April 2021) under section WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE? As noted in the Fact Sheet for Recipients, you should not get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of the vaccine or if you had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of the vaccine. The decision to receive the second dose for any other reason cannot be made by Pfizer. We refer you to speak to your healthcare provider about the risks of the vaccine compared to the risks of potentially not being fully protected against COVID-19 infection. Your healthcare provider knows your health situation and has access to information that can better help inform this decision.

Yesterday I went to the ER because I had light pressure during the morning in my head not as severe as the other days, in the afternoon I had a tight pressure in my head so I took 2 tablets of extra strength Tylenol, the headache went away but within an hour I had a bad reaction. My whole body turned red, bumps, itchy. It was bad. It was bizarre because I've never had reaction to Tylenol prior. I never had that before yesterday. It was the first time. They gave me a shot of steroids. The doctor didn't know if it was a bad reaction to the Pfizer reaction (said it would usually occur within 4 hours of getting the vaccine) or the mix of the Tylenol and the pfizer vaccine together. He had no clue. But he had not seen a reaction of the vaccine at 5 days later. He said I could have reacted late, or the Tylenol and Pfizer vaccine together had a bad reaction. I had covid late Jan of this year. The vaccine more interaction due to that if I had immunity to it. It was so bad I don't know if it's possible to wait 2 months for the 2nd shot. I heard the first dose 80-90 percent immunity or even more. With my body I never had this reaction. Today I'm a whole lot better (day 6). I am too putting too much, should I wait 90 days other say 4 weeks. What to do about the 2nd dose? How about using antihistamines during/after my second dose? What about Tylenol or Ibuprofen?" Caller wanted to know if his reactions could be due to him having covid before and if it was safe to get the covid vaccine after having covid infection.

As a clinical monitor, I was called over to assess a driver slumped over in his seat. He had just received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine approximately 10 minutes earlier. The passenger (his fiance) said he was acting normal until she heard him grunt and then realized that he was passed out. While attempting to lay flat, I performed a jaw thrust that yielded a stridulous inspiration but was still unresponsive. He did not have a palpable carotid pulse. Paramedics was summoned emergently. Within 30-45 seconds, he awoke but was confused and amnestic to the event. He had no physical complaints and no significant medical or allergy history. I auscultated his larynx (no stridor) and his lungs (CTA). His initial vitals: BP 90/51 HR 61 VR 16 SaO2 100% An electrocardiogram demonstrated a sinus rhythm without ischemic changes or evidence of conduction delay. His glucose was 119. Over the next 30 minutes, he was able to drink two bottles of water and some orange juice. That said, he still said he "felt off." Repeat vital signs: BP 118/62 HR 69 SaO2 100%. The medics advised him to follow up with his doctor, preferably today. His fiance agreed to drive him to an ED near their home for a more thorough evaluation. I provided her my phone number to provide to the ED for any questions. His clinical syndrome was consistent with a syncopal episode associated with orthostatic hypotension. Low suspicion for anaphylaxis.

A pharmacist from pharmacy had 2 patients who received the vaccine and both had a reaction after the dose, within one hour after receiving the dose, and EMS was called. The pharmacist confirmed the first patient had the reaction within 1 hour of receiving the dose. She clarified this person was having cold sweats, about to black out, had a hard time and trouble swallowing and was turning pale, his pupils were dilated. Pharmacist explained they make them sit there for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine so this reaction happened maybe 3 minutes after he got the shot. The EMS came and he was brought to the hospital. The patient did come back afterwards and he said the doctor didn't know 100 percent what happened, but it might been a slight allergic reaction, not to the point where he lost consciousness, but they did release him. She clarified they checked his vitals and everything and released him. When pharmacist was probed for the event, the pharmacist thought it was an anaphylactic reaction. The events require a visit to Emergency Room, patient was brought by EMS. Not had a visit to Physician Office. Unknown if patient received treatment, the pharmacist wasn't be told that much information. The outcome of events was unknown. Causality: In this case, pharmacist did not think so.

About 2 hours after the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine I felt a warm, flushed feeling in my left foot, not unlike stepping in a bucket of warm water. The sensation lasted about 5 seconds and disappeared on its own. Since then, about once per hour I have had the same symptom, with a warm, flushed feeling in my left foot. There is no pain, slight numbness and tingling, but no loss of function or coordination. I can sense that the symptom is about to begin approximately 10 seconds before it starts, because my foot begins to feel swollen. This has occurred about 40-50 times since the injection, and has only gone down slightly in frequency over the past 72 hours, currently it is happening about once every 1.5-2 hours.

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

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

Symptoms began on 01/10/2021 around 3:30-4:00 AM PST. I had body aches for 2 days. I woke up on 01/11/2021 with soreness in my right arm pit. I woke up today, 01/12/2021 and had pain and swelling in my right arm pit. I went to my employer's employee health services and was checked out by a provider. I was told that he didn't see anything, and he minimized my symptoms. He didn't seem like he wanted to evaluate me from the time he walked in the exam room. He told me "what do you want us to do? It looks normal." He then went on to tell them he's not going to give me time off for work aside from today. I did not ask for any time off once during the evaluation. I recheck my arm pit when I got home, and noticed the swelling is approx. 3"x 3"s. It was not hard to see when I rechecked. I have noticeable pain the swollen area as well. The swelling is visible when I extend my right arm all the way up above my head. I attempted to tell the employee health provider this, but he preferred to check in a manner that does not show the swelling. I am slightly muscular and when my arm is down, you can only feel soft tissue. Employee health gave me Ibuprofen to treat my Sx's. I called my primary physician's office and am waiting for a call back to be either scheduled for an evaluation or receive medical advice.

48 hrs after receiving first dose of Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine I started to feel tension type headaches that were moderate but sometimes can be severe and disabling. These headaches persist daily since the first dose of the vaccine. I still have them today. Duration has been almost two months. No other associated neurologic symptoms at this moment. I dont have any past medical history and never had issues with headaches before. Contacted neurologyst with specialty in headaches for treatment. Labs and MRI without contrast are within normal limits. I used a series of NSAIDS to see if it helped the pain without success. Also did the Botox treatment, which improved headaches but didnt resolve symptoms.

Over the days following my first shot on 3-20-2021, I noticed an increased skin sensitivity to irritants including fragrances and lotions that I normally use. Small hives and mild itchiness on the skin began to develop around 4-1-2021. In the days following the second shot on 4-10-2021, the allergic sensitivity to any substance put on the skin became increasingly severe, especially on the left arm where the shot was administered. The left arm became swollen up to 2 times it's normal size by 04-14-2021 even after no more cosmetics or foreign substances were being applied to the skin. Hives appeared on other parts of the body but nowhere as severe as the left arm. The left arm skin was inflamed , itchy and painful. Swelling became so severe that doctors found it necessary to presribe topical and oral steroids (prednisone). Oral steroids were effective at reducing inflammation.

Looked like he was in sepsis; thrombus occluding his IMV protruding into part of the SMV; Thrombocytopenia; Bacteremia with E. Coli; Unable to tolerate diet; Abdominal pain; Nausea; Vomiting; Muscle aches; Chills; Fever; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician. A 36-year-old male patient received the first single dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE), via an unspecified route of administration, on 06Apr2021 at 10:00, at the age of 36 years old, for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included diverticulitis ongoing since 05Nov2018. Concomitant drugs included escitalopram oxalate (LEXAPRO) ongoing since an unspecified date. There were no other vaccinations 4 weeks prior to receiving BNT162b2. Two days after vaccination, on 08Apr2021, the patient developed nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, chills, and fever. The patient continued to have these symptoms and then developed abdominal pain on 11Apr2021, so the patient went to ER. Nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, chills, fever, and abdominal pain were reported as medically significant events. A CT of the abdomen and pelvis was performed on 11Apr2021, which seemed at that time to reveal only uncomplicated diverticulitis. Therefore, the patient was sent home with oral antibiotics. Then, the patient presented back to ER on 14Apr2021: the patient couldn't tolerate his diet and was experiencing worsening of abdominal pain. Another CT of abdomen and pelvis was therefore done on 14Apr2021, which this time revealed a thrombus occluding his IMV protruding into part of the SMV and the portal vein. In light of this finding, on 14Apr2021 the medical staff retroactively looked at the patient's CT scan from 11Apr2021 and they found that the thrombus was already present but less evident than on 14Apr2021. The patient also looked like he was in sepsis, so the medical team was performing a full septic work-up and the patient was hospitalized on 14Apr2021. The patient was terrified, and the medical staff were ruling out acute mesenteric ischemia. On 14Apr2021, blood work showed thrombocytopenia, and a bacteria blood test showed bacteremia with E. Coli. The event thrombus was reported as serious since medically significant, life threatening, and requiring hospitalization. No information regarding seriousness was provided for thrombocytopenia and bacteremia. Treatment with heparin drip was started (ongoing at the time of the reporting) and the patient improved. However, the reporter stated that at the time of the last reporting, all of the patient's symptoms were ongoing, that all of the patient's symptoms had worsened. At the time of the last reporting the patient was in the ICU. The patient had not recovered from the all reported events. The reporter did not know if the reported events were related to BNT162b2, however she added that diverticulitis could also cause all the patient's side effects. Information on the lot/ 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 thrombosis, sepsis and other reported events due to temporal relationship. However, the reported events may possibly represent intercurrent medical conditions 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 MRI of abdomen and vascular angiogram, counteractive treatment measures and concomitant medications. This case will be reassessed once additional information is available. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to Regulatory Authorities, Ethics Committees and Investigators, as appropriate.

There was some mild edema of the hands, I had some mild fatigue, and temperature check was slightly elevated around 99 degrees F.

I had a stage 1b malignant melanoma lesion removed from my right shoulder in 2014 and had completed all required follow-up. About a week after receiving the first dose (left arm), I noticed a small marble-sized lump in my right armpit. The lump continued to grow rapidly and I went to the doctor, after a biopsy and scans it was confirmed to be metastatic melanoma, most likely a recurrence from the 2014 melanoma. I received the second dose on 18 February (left arm) and noticed the lump in my right armpit grew much faster and I had a reaction (swollen nodes) in my left armpit as well. The melanoma is limited to my right armpit. We are reporting the event because of the timing of the melanoma recurrence in conjunction with the vaccination and because the National Institutes of Health is investigating the biopsy/pathology of the tumor in the right axilla as there are features they have never seen before in melanoma.

I received my second dose of the Pfizer / BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 1:53pm EDT. Many of the "typical" or "expected" side effects commenced about 12 hours later, including chills, night sweats, a slight fever (99.5), and headache and lethargy the following day. Nothing was particularly off-putting until the afternoon of Wednesday, May 19, 2021, when I noticed small red spots on my legs and feet. A Google search suggested petechiae and enough cause for me to go to a nearby urgent care clinic. The petechiae were present on both legs and feet (and eventually a few spots on my hands), though a little more pronounced on the left side (with one noteworthy cluster on my left leg). I had no apparent gum bleeding or bruising (maybe one bruise, but the urgent care doctor thought it was there beforehand). The doctor at the urgent care clinic confirmed petechiae and ran stat blood work for return that night. At ~9pm EDT on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, I received a phone call from the urgent care's centralized lab informing me that my platelet count was 2 (10^3/uL) -- dangerously low, with risk of spontaneous bleeding and in the worst case scenario brain hemorrhage -- and my PTT was 55.6 seconds. They told me to report to an emergency room immediately, the nearest of Medical Center. The diagnosis was eventually Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP). Every physician I've encountered has felt that the occurrence one-day post-vaccination points to the vaccine as the cause. (For what it's worth, I do not think any of the doctors or nurses I encountered had never seen a platelet count so low. Most of them said as much.) My discharge papers officially note as the diagnoses: petechiae, thrombocytopenia, and adverse effect of vaccine. I have included details related to my platelet count, treatment course, and other figures below (and am happy to provide corroborating information where appropriate). The doctors did not run any d-dimers, PF4 HIT ELISA, or fibrinogen tests, and no imaging was performed, presumably because I did not present with any signs of simultaneous clotting (e.g., TTP or VITT). They've also told me that my haptoglobin and hemoglobin levels were normal (see below), which I am told helps support the notion that there was / is no clotting or "red blood cell breakdown."

He got his vaccine, and was okay. The next day was tired, drowsiness and missed a day of work, and was able to work after that. He was supposed to get his 2nd vaccine on 5/21/21 and had to go out of town and was going to get it when he got back. The next day 5/23/21 at 12:00 AM his throat began to swell up and gradually it moved from his throat to his chest area. He went to the ER on 5/23/21 in Hospital and they looked at his throat, gave him a steroid shot and some antibiotics and sent him home. The next morning he drove back to home and continued taking the antibiotics that they prescribed and his throat kept swelling more and more. On Tuesday 5/25 at 1:00 PM he went to the ER and sat there 8 hours without being seen and decided to leave. The next morning 5/26/21 he went to an UC and they sent him to an ER at Hospital and from there he was sent to another ER by ambulance to have emergency throat surgery. He had surgery on 5/27/21 at the Hospital where he had an abscess on the inside of his throat that caused his throat to swell. He had swollen lymph nodes and to release the pressure and fluid in his throat as his neck and chest were swelled up. He was discharged on 5/31/21. He is now recovering from the surgery and getting better. He lost 30# as he was not able to eat and did not have an appetite until he came home and eating a little bit better now. He goes back to his doctor on 6/15/21 to get the stitches removed from his neck.

Inflamed lymph nodes on the side of the injection site. Took naproxen for swelling and pain. Naproxen helps but lymph nodes will swell if not taking it.

This happens a few times a day.

No history of severe allergic reactions. Observed for 15 minutes following vaccine injection. Felt fine at that point so I was told that I could leave. About 10-15 minutes after leaving (about 25-30 minutes after vaccine injection), I started to feel tingling in the bottom half of my face (most noticeable in the bottom lip and chin area), slight swelling on back sides of tongue, and slight swelling of area under chin at the top of the throat (right side only). I could still breathe, drink, and talk normally. Although symptoms did not seem to be intensifying, I decided to seek care at a nearby urgent care out of caution. I arrived at the urgent care about 10 minutes after the onset of symptoms (about 45 minutes after vaccine injection). Provider evaluated me, administered pepcid and a Benadryl shot, and notified me that if I went into anaphylactic shock that they would administer an epipen and call an ambulance. Vitals were normal and remained normal throughout observation. Symptoms began to abate about 15 minutes after Benadryl injection. Tongue swelling abated first about 15 minutes after Benadryl injection. Active tingling in the chin abated about 30 minutes after Benadryl injection, although light numbness remained. Swelling under chin abated about 45 minutes after Benadryl injection. Provider or staff checked on me every 15-20 minutes. Provider released me from observation after about 2 hours. At that point all symptoms had abated with the exception of slight numbness on bottom half of face, which persisted for several more hours.

My doctor thought two weeks was two long of a delay for the reaction to be from the vaccine. My doctor thought it might have been some antibiotics I had been on and they gave me prednisone. The prednisone cleared up the reaction before the second shot. I received the second shot (on 18Jan2021 with lot no. EK9231, intramuscular on right arm) and within two hours I had an even worse systematic allergic reaction that is still on going as of today 04Feb2021. The Prednisone is not clearing up the reaction.

On Saturday, 4/10/21 I started noticing hive on my upper arms, upper legs and forearms. Took claritan and they disappeared after 4 hours. That night at 9pm they started to show up in different places. In the morning they were on my forearms, knees, body. I took more claritan and went on a 12 mile hike. As I hiked they got worse and then, about 2pm they had disappeared significantly from knees and forearms. Took a shower at the house around 4 and saw hives all along torso, shoulders and upper arms. Took 2 Benadryl?s around 5 and it all seemed to disappear. In the morning, 4/12/21, went to work and saw that hives were only on my hands, and my hands were now swollen too.

Hives never left hands today. At end of day, some hives traveling up forearms. Took a Benadryl and crashed for the night. Hands still have hives and swollen. Palms swollen.

passing out/ passed out; fainted; Vomited all over self; Blood pressure: Low, experiencing hypotension; Lethargy; Pains in legs; Pain in lymph nodes on left side; Migraine headache/ headache; Felt unwell; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 38-year-old male patient received the first dose BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE Lot Number: ER8732, expiration date: 31Jul2021) via an unspecified route of administration, administered on the left arm on 30Mar2021 09:00 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing asthma, thyroid cancer, thyroid removed, rhinitis, allergic to eggs (ongoing). Concomitant medications included calcium since they took out part of parathyroid, levothyroxine for Thyroid removed and calcitriol taken for Better absorption of calcium; and all were ongoing. The patient previously received Tetanus shot on an unspecified date in 2021 (3 weeks to a month prior to getting the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine) with no adverse events. Patient was calling to report adverse side effects that he experienced 2 days ago on 07Apr2021 after having the first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. He said that on 07Apr2021, he was taken ill in an ambulance after passing out and vomiting all over himself and his wife. His wife may have saved his life by keeping him from falling down when he fainted. He was taken in an ambulance to the emergency room after he passed out. He said that it was an unpleasant experience as he had to strip down all of his clothes because they had vomit all over them and change in front of the paramedics before being placed on a stretcher and taken to the emergency room. While in the emergency room, he had a CT scan, bloodwork, and checked body movement by having him follow a finger and various other regular tests. He mentioned that the emergency room physician determined that in likelihood, the reason that he passed out and vomited on himself was a side effect from the Pfizer vaccination. He talked to his physician yesterday. His physician explained to him that because of his health background, what happened following the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, and due to the severity of things, the physician believed that it wouldn't be a good idea for the caller to get the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine given his reaction. The physician stated that it was up to him whether or not he got the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. He had his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on 30Mar2021. He began to feel unwell the following day of the Covid-19 vaccine (31Mar2021), experiencing lethargy, pains in his legs and migraine headache. He reported that he got progressively worse and thought he was having a thyroid issue. He reported that the physicians in the emergency room couldn't really determine what the cause of the fainting episode could be as all lab work and the CT scan came back normal. The emergency room physician thought that the caller experienced the fainting episode and vomiting due to the Covid-19 vaccine. He experienced a headache and pain in his lymph nodes on the left side. He took Tylenol and was ok. The next day, 31Mar2021, he didn't feel too well but was ok. He reported that for a few more days following 01Apr2021, he felt not too bad. He didn't have a temperature or a fever and didn't think he was suffering from any specific flu like symptoms. The facility where the vaccine was administered was in a Medical Facility, outpatient hospital like a walk-in center. The event passing out resulted in Emergency room visit. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures on 07Apr2021 which included, potassium levels: normal, blood pressure: low, experiencing hypotension, thyroid levels were normal, CT scan normal and checked for diabetes: negative. Outcome of the events lethargy, pain in legs and migraine headache was recovering, pain in lymph nodes on left side recovered on 31Mar2021 while unknown for the other events.

On day 2 or 3 of getting the shot, I started feeling a burning sensation in my chest and what felt like my heart. It was about 3 or 4 out of 10 on the pain scale. I also had intermittent tingling sensations, mostly on my cheek to the left of my nose, but also tingling in locations around my body which happened only a couple of times. My heart beat rapidly. It was similar to the heart palpitations I get when I eat certain foods. It also felt as if my heart was constrained, as if its outer layers were less flexible than usual. When the symptoms showed up I started following a fairly aggressive anti-inflammatory diet, mainly wheat/cereal and Advil. I spent most of the time lying in bed facing up, in order to minimize strain on my heart. I had trouble laying on my side, since my chest/heart was sensitive to pressure. I also believe I was more acutely aware of the distribution of blood throughout my body, and laying on my side felt similar to being upside down in that blood was pooling heavily at the bottom, but I may be misremembering the sensation. I don't know if I had shortness of breath, since I took care to avoid exertion. Since my heart was beating like crazy, exertion of any kind seemed like a really bad idea. The symptoms did not change in severity for a couple days. On day 4 or 5 of getting the shot, I felt slightly feverish for about a 10 minute period. During this time, I noticed the burning sensation weakening slightly, and I began feeling a soreness on my chest near my left shoulder, which I believe is a lymph node area. Each day after, the symptoms and my heart calmed down little by little. ---- On day 9, I went to the emergency room since I still had heart palpitations and the burning sensation at about a 1/10 pain level. Just sitting upright caused my heart to go into overdrive. The hospital did not find anything out of the ordinary. I was given MAALOX, but the burning sensation was too faint to know if there was any improvement as a result. Their best theory is that I had costochondritis. ---- On day 11, after eating dinner I started getting "chronic hiccups". These last anywhere from 10 minutes to a couple of hours without stopping. I am not sure whether food or drinks cause them. They are short/acute hiccups and happen at an interval of about 10-15 seconds. I have no history of such a thing. ---- Today is day 12. The symptoms are noticeably better since I visited the hospital, but the burning sensation is still present around what feels like my heart and the hiccups aren't stopping. My best theory is that I may have had an infection by the time I got the vaccine. Maybe I had an infection, not necessarily COVID but some related virus, that was kept in check below an immune response threshold until the vaccine came along and led to the immune system burning the whole infection down.

This consumer (patient) reported for himself that: A 38-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (Solution for injection; Lot number: ER8131 or ER8231 and Expiration date were not reported) via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 18Apr2021 (at the age of 38-year-old) as first dose, single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. On 18Apr2021, he went to get the Covid shot through name withheld which Pfizer sponsors and it was done at name withheld. He went there and took the shot. He was told to wait 15 minutes and then left. When he got to car, immediately he felt like he had a golf ball in his left arm. The next couple of days, that little golf ball in his arm started traveling to his whole body. He felt it in his back, his chest, he felt it in his legs. Literally, in the next 3 days, he felt it literally travel through his whole body. He felt it in his calves, it was crazy also mentioned they felt sore or like ball in the arm. He started sweating and didn't feel too great. He thought it was standard side effects and didn't think much of it. A couple of days past by and then Thursday morning, he woke up and his breathing was very off. He clarifies his throat was hurting. He thought it was a sore throat and took some cough medicine and cough drops. Then the next day, it wasn't going away and was still hurting, wasn't getting any better. His breathing was very rough. If he was just standing still like laying down, then felt okay. But if went to move or do something it was very difficult. Again, expecting these symptoms, some people have said these symptoms and he didn't' think much of it. The next morning patient woke up and breathing felt fine. His neck was swollen. He thought maybe he had a sore throat or something. He was taking cough drops to soothe his throat the following day, the throat was still hurting, and it was the same. The patient called the doctor and did a telehealth. The patient told the doctor when he received the first dose Pfizer Covid Vaccine and all his symptoms. The doctor said it is a little unpredictable, nothing the doctor hasn't heard. He went to the doctor office the next day and was hooking to a nebulizer for breathing and prescribed an asthma pump. The doctor thought patient had Lymphoma in the neck. The doctor wanted to go the following day for an ultrasound. He went to the ultrasound and they checked the neck and immediately there were red flags. His heart rate was checked, and the heart rate was 245. The patient was hospitalized from 27Apr2021 to 08May2021. The minute they saw heart rate and started putting intravenous and received treatment to low down heart rate. The heart rate went down to 170 or 165. He had x-rays and a CAT scan done. He had fluids in his heart and fluid in the lung and a blood clot in neck. He had a hole cut open on left side to lungs and the lungs were drained. He went back to the ICU, they ran another CAT scan and X-ray and gave the medication. He does not know if this medication was antibiotics or what the medication was. The CDC received this information because the patient case was so rare. When the CAT scan and X-rays were run again, the fluid is right back up in the lungs. Then he was taken to surgery for the heart. An incision was cut from where itches is to back on the side, a very big incision. The heart was gone into to cut a little piece around the heart. Something was cut out so the heart could drain, and fluid could get out of the heart. While all of this is happening, he wasn't getting any better, was getting worse. The patient health deteriorated, breathing was about 10 percent and was hooked up to a breathing machine. He was sedated at that time and not awake anymore. The machine was keeping him alive. Now, every day for basically five days he was asleep and not knowing what was going on and was tested for Leukemia, cancer, and A to Z every disease you can think of to try to find common ground. Everything came back negative; nothing was wrong with the caller. He was given this or that medication every day and was sedated for about 5 days. Every day of the sedation was getting worse. He was dying and time was ticking. On the 5th day, everything was getting worse. The woman kicked everyone out of the room and went into his mouthpiece on the ventilator that was keeping the alive doing the breathing for the patient. The woman pulled something out of his lung. The woman started pumping him with steroids. What the woman took out of his lung stopped the fluid from going in. The fluid wouldn't fill back up in the lung. Once the woman started giving the steroids, the steroids killed the Pfizer Covid Vaccine. The s
