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.

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.

My Gout has been successfully managed by Allopurinal for over 12 years and I have not experienced any significant events during this time.

Losing strength in his right leg; Muscle pain; Joint pain; Muscle spasms in his neck because he has neck pain too; Muscle spasms in his neck because he has neck pain too; His leg kept getting worse; He just cant walk anymore; Leg is swollen; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient) via Pfizer. A 60-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration on 17Mar2021 (Batch/Lot Number: ER6208) as single dose at the age of 60-year-old for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included disability. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient experienced losing strength in his right leg in Mar2021, his leg kept getting worse in 2021, he just can not walk anymore in 2021, leg is swollen in 2021, muscle pain in Mar2021 with, joint pain in Mar2021, muscle spasms in his neck because he has neck pain too in 2021. The events losing strength in his right leg, his leg kept getting worse, he just can not walk anymore and leg is swollen were assessed medically significant. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included magnetic resonance imaging: leg is swollen in 2021, X-ray: nothing showed up in 2021. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of losing strength in his right leg, muscle pain, joint pain. The course of events was as follows: Around 21 Mar2021 or 22Mar2021, he had problems with his leg. Patient was experiencing muscle pain and joint pain, losing strength in his right leg. Patient stated that was a problem. Patient had an MRI and X-ray that looked to see what the problem was. Patient received second dose on 14Apr2021. Patient hasn't even seen his prescribing Healthcare Professional yet, until Monday. He hasn't worked in five years, he's been on disability. He wanted to get off disability so he went and got a job. He started the job 28Mar2021 and everyday, his leg kept getting worse. He had to leave the job the other day because he just cant walk anymore, he has to do a lot of walking on the job. He called the doctor and told them something was wrong with his leg, they took an x-ray and nothing showed up. They did an MRI and all it shows was that his leg was swollen, no bones or nothing is broken. He was looking at Pfizer paperwork that a facility gave him and the two of symptoms are on there, so this problem was related to the vaccine. He never hurt his right leg, never had a problem until he got this shot. He was losing all his strength in his right leg, all the pain. They have been giving muscle relaxers and ibuprofen and they did not seem to work or be doing anything. First, he went to the emergency room and they gave him Ibuprofen 600 mg tablets and they gave him Cyclobenzaprine 10mg tablets. They said that he was experiencing muscle spasms in his neck because he has neck pain too. So he made an appointment with his family doctor, which there was no openings and had to see another PA. He did not know the HCP last name, but he/she was a PA in the office and he saw him/her, who requested the x-ray, and he had the x-ray done and saw him/her again and nothing showed up so he/she requested an MRI. He went to the hospital to have that and nothing showed up except his leg was swollen. Now they are going to send him to a bone specialist, but there was no reason to because now he stated he knew what was causing this. Patient took Cyclobenzaprine, 10 mg, three times a day by mouth. He states it did not seem to do nothing. Patient verified it was a prescription from the pharmacy: NDC: 0137517-19674, unsure of LOT, expiry date. The quantity of the first bottle was 15 but he went through that already and he got a new bottle that has 42 in it. This current bottle he has 12 or 13 left. The first bottle was completely gone. Patient took Baclofen 5mg tablets, three times a day: morning, noon, and night. They were not doing anything either, well he did not think they are. Patient provided NDC: 0135391-19674. The first muscle relaxer they gave him, the 10mg one, he took it that day, it knocked him out. Caller states when he saw his doctor, he said he can not take that one while he works, he will take it at night time, so that is why the doctor gave him the other muscle relaxer, Baclofen, to take while he worked during the day. He took one muscle relaxer at night of one kind and the other kind he takes the ones that won't take him out as much. Patient stated that he had to leave his job because he cannot do it, he cannot walk. Patient took Ibuprofen (NDC: 0139246-19674, to use before 22Apr2022) 600mg, by mouth, three times a day. He took one with the muscle relaxers. Patient took verified all medications Cyclobenzaprine; Baclofen; Ibuprofen were prescriptions from the pharmacy. The outcome of muscle pain and joint pain, losing strength in his right leg, his leg kept getting worse, was not recovered of he just can not walk anymore on, leg is swollen, neck pain was unknown. Reporter seriousness for muscle pain and joint pain, losing strength in his right leg and neck pain was unspecified Patient received his second dose of Pfizer Covid 19 Vaccine (LOT: EW0161, unsure if ER or EW) on 14Apr2021. A Product Complaint was filed. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.

About 1 week following first Pfizer vaccination, I began having achiness in left leg and thought this was possibly from sitting in a chair without enough cushion. I simply could not get leg comfortable. Over a couple days duration the leg continued to be achy and slightly swollen. On December 23rd at night I awoke due to such discomfort in leg and could not get comfortable enough to go to sleep. I went to ED where I was examined and found to be mildly short of breath and in pain. Ultrasound of leg showed large upper leg DVT. CT of chest showed submassive Pulmonary Horseshoe Embolus. I was placed on Heparin and anticoagulated. Hospitalized for several days while anticoagulated and observed for any clot progression or respiratory distress and discharged home on Xarelto for anticoagulation and follow up with PCP, Hematology, Pulmonary medicine.

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.

A few days after my second Covid vaccination I started experiencing fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath. I also noticed the calf muscle in my lower right leg began to swell. The swelling continued to get worse and about a week later I noticed a significant amount of petechial hemorrhaging in my lower right leg. I started using an ice-pack in an attempt to reduce the swelling. I also sat/lay with my leg up (horizontal) as much as possible. On 6/28 I visited with my primary care doctor to seek help in addressing the swelling. My doctor sent me for an ultrasound which discovered a deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and a CT scan which highlighted pulmonary embolisms in my lungs. I was admitted to hospital where I was treated with blood thinners; Note: I had my first shot on 4/13/21 and also experienced fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath, but did not experience any swelling. As a result of feeling unwell I delayed getting my second shot.

left side will blur; Left side of face was sagging/ water leaking out of mouth/Progressive weakness on left side of face/ Swelling on lower left mandible/ diagnosed with Bell's Palsy.; Eye tearing; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse who reported for himself. A 61-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; Batch/lot number: EK5780) in left arm on 26Dec2020 at 08:30 at single dose for covid-19 immunisation (worked in surgical ICU and was over 61 years old). Medical history included Pre-diabetic. Family history included: mother died; mother's side had colon cancer and grandparents and uncles had cardiovascular diseases.Concomitant medication included exenatide (BYDUREON), amlodipine besilate (NORVASC), omeprazole (PROTONIX), hydrochlorothiazide, lisinopril and pneumococcal vaccine on 08Dec2020 and tetanus vaccine on 08Dec2020. It was reported that on 31Dec2020 at 07:30, the patient had eye tearing and water leaking out of mouth, left side of face was sagging, swelling on lower left mandible (eye tearing was first, as reported); on 31Dec2020 he also experienced progressive weakness on left side of face; on 02Jan2021 the patient was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. 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. Because he was taking prednisone, noticed his sugar was up a little bit (date unspecified). It was prescribed Glitizide extended release, 2.5mg one tablet twice a day with breakfast. 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. Patient had an appointment with a neurologist on 13Jan2021. Patient was still having symptoms. It was really hard for him. Not hard to swallow. Face was still drooping. Eyes were still tearing. 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.

He put some ice on it which did not help the swelling. It bothers him when his T-shirt touches the area, so he tried to wear a regular shirt. He also had achy pain in his back, weakness in his arms, sore throat and a little cough, no fever. The armpit still hurts and is still swollen. Other than the ice he did not take anything else as he takes a lot of medications as it is. He has not called his doctor because it happened over the weekend, but is going to call her today. He did have a COVID test yesterday drive through facility at the community hospital as he has a surgery coming up, and they were going to call him if it was positive.

About two weeks after the 1st shot I noticed my facial skin was very itchy. This was a constant thing. Two days after I had the shot shot my face swoll up and was very itchy. I was waking up in the middle of the night several times a night because of the itches and I was going my best no to scratch. i rubbed moisturizer in to my face and later started using some over the counter itching creams that would work for a few hours. I began to realize the itching was worse in places where I had five years ago had Bellafill infected into acne scars and deep wrinkles by a licensed cosmetic surgeon. I like the results and have no issue with the doctor or filler, but this stuff itched terribly. I see on the internet some complaints from others, but I wanted to report that I too have this. As of today, weeks later, it is not as bad, but as I write this I want to itch a place above my right cheek bone that was injected with Bellafill. I thought it was a problem with the Bellafill, I am convinced now it is a side effect of the vaccine. Guess this means it is working to adopt to odd things in my body.

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

Extreme flare up of gout. The worst gout I ever experienced. I can be prone to gout so am familiar with the issue. This began immediately the following morning after the first dose and is still a problem now 3 weeks later. My entire foot, ankle and lower calf were completely swollen and the foot turned blue. Finally now 3 weeks later the swelling has reduced to the big toe but I am still limping. I was schedule for the second dose yesterday and we cancelled. I am very concerned about taking the second dose, especially since we have a wedding trip planned in early June. I can not suffer with this again during that trip and not sure if a 10% increase in immunity from Covid is worth the risk of another major gout flare up like that. Naturally I am concerned about permanent joint damage also.

First: April 25~27: Sore Arm, similar to a bruised muscle. Second: April 27 my right forehead just below the hairline and in the right ear area where the top of the ear meets the head, had minor itching and were turning red. On April 28. Hives began on my left arm's lower wrist and in the general area of my right leg's knee. The hives became more numerous in these areas until a general red rash condition was appearing between them as well. By Saturday Morning May 1 the knee and wrist areas were noticeably red like a rash and hives were also appearing with itching below the right knee on the upper half of my shin, above this knee, on my right lower wrist and on my left lower fore arm. My right ear was starting to swell at just the top. I tried putting Gold Bond Medicated Powder on these areas, but it didn't reduce the itching much. Sunday May 2, I called my mom who is a Registered Nurse about this. She advised going to my health care provider to substantiate these symptoms. Monday May 3 I visited my health care provider's office after work and got an appointment for Tuesday at 10:15 from a cancellation. One of their RN's looked at my hives and rashes. New hives had now also formed on my left leg just below the knee on the back side. It was a red string of itching a couple inches long. I called my boss Tuesday so I could take the day off for the appointment and he agreed that I should do this. At the doctor's office, PA-C after extensive questioning and examination said he thought this was an allergic reaction possibly related to the polyethylene content of the vaccination. He further advised that I not get the second shot until I was checked by an allergist. He put in a referral for this. I think I picked up cold-like symptoms (sore throat and cough) from the doctor's office that were minor. Wednesday morning I had much worse symptoms. I was weak, groggy, couldn't think without great effort, was more itchy, and my right knee was starting to ooze. I called my boss at work to take the day off since I was quite sure driving would be risky, and that I would have to leave work early for lack of energy. My right front thigh had a new area of hives along with my right and left fore arms. I started treating all my affected areas with Caladryl topical Analgesic and taking generic Benedryl. I had breakfast and then slept until 2:30 PM, had lunch and slept until evening. By then my forehead and right ear areas had reduced in severity. I had lost (2) days of work. The rest of the week, all my symptoms diminished. As of this writing Sunday May 9, my knee is still tender, sore, and red, and left wrist hives are still pronounced.

Within 24 hours, my right foot swelled, especially the middle of the sole, but also the toes and top of the foot. After a two-week delay due to a misdiagnosis by my PCP, I was seen at an urgent care center. An ultrasound of the right leg discovered a blood clot. I was placed on Eliquis 10 mg twice a day for the next 7 days followed by 5 mg twice a day. After 7 days, the swelling was reduced by 90%. The swelling has remained at that level since then. I changed my PCP on May 21 and was cleared for most activities. She advised me to continues with the Eliquis for three months from May 3, with no need for further testing.

Medical history included atrial fibrillation, diabetes, coronary artery disease (CAD), heart failure with reduced ejection fraction all from an unknown date (HFrEF). Concomitant medication included apixaban (ELIQUIS) taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. It was unknown if the patient received any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID-19 vaccine. It was unknown if the patient diagnosed with COVID-19 prior to vaccination.

getting suicidal thoughts; lymph nodes have large balls like an egg on his neck; really incapacitated/ He can't move; joints are swollen; freezing and is hot and cold all night; voice didn't sound like normally./ sounds like he smokes four packs a day; This is a spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer. A 64-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) via unspecified route in arm single dose for COVID-19 immunization on unknown date at 64-year-old. The patient medical history included paranoia. He was an easily over sensitive dude. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient was really incapacitated. His joints were swollen. He couldn't move. He was freezing and was hot and cold all night. Tuesday it was hot and he was outside on the deck in a hoodie and was freezing. His voice didn't sound like he normally did. It sounded like he smoked four packs a day. His lymph nodes had large balls like an egg on his neck. He won't go to the doctor or emergency room and he was scared. The patient wanted to commit suicide, just said that four days ago. It was not an emergency at this time. The patient was getting suicidal thoughts, but that was part of his paranoia anyway. He felt like he was being used as a test victim. His mind went nuts because he was paranoid, it was before he received the vaccine. Maybe the patient would take enough time to breathe and have logic to seep into his brain. All symptoms started immediately and were all ongoing. The reporter confirmed that by symptoms he was referring to 'his friend's joints being swollen', 'freezing, hot and cold all night', 'sounded like he smokes four packs a day', 'lymph nodes were large balls like an egg on his neck'. Outcome of the events getting suicidal thoughts and really incapacitated/ can't move was unknown, outcome of the other events was not resolved.

A 64-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, Batch/lot number: ER8729 and Expire Date: unknown) via unspecified route of administration, in left (upper) arm on 07Apr2021 13:45 in the afternoon (age at vaccination: 64 years) as DOSE 2, SINGLE for Covid-19 immunisation. Patient's medical history included diabetes and immune system disorder (immune system is not the same) from an unspecified date and unknown if ongoing. Since he was diabetic so he was skeptical to get the vaccine because he knew his immune system is not the same as most people. Concomitant medications were none. Patient previously received first dose of vaccine (Lot no: ER2613, expiry date: unknow) via unspecified route of administration, in left (upper) arm on 17Mar2021, as single dose for Covid-19 Immunisation. There were no other vaccinations taken within four weeks prior to the first administration date of the suspect vaccine. After second dose, on 08Apr2021 the patient reported he had swollen glands under his arm and neck. It was reported that when it first started swelling, it wasn't extremely painful but the glands were very uncomfortable under his left arm and then after a few days it got better but then on the 5th or 6th day all the glands got swollen. He confirmed that was still ongoing, it had pretty much been persisting the same since that 6th day after the shot. He said it had been almost 10 weeks. He went to his GP and they took one look and did a blood test and a urine test and it was all normal and because this was such a new thing no one knows what to do. Since the blood test and urine test was negative the patient was sent to the ENT and he looked at his under arm and neck and said come back in a month if he still has it, this is why he was calling because no doctor knows what to do with it. The patient underwent lab test on 30Apr2021 which included CNC, CMP and urine test, results of which were negative. The sample was collected on 30Apr2021 the report was given on 01May2021. The adverse event resulted in visit of physician's office. Patient believed that his other 2 sisters got the Pfizer shot, and they had no reactions and they also have immune compromised systems. The outcome of the events was not recovered.

Patient primary care physician and specialist have given tramadol for the pain. He had a headache and stiff neck really for no apparent reason and they continued. Then he noticed out of his peripheral vision was bad, his vision was bad. 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. 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 are fine, not tumor, he just had migraines and he never had migraines before. He saw a neurologist for the migraines 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 quiet down with the migraines and the visual distortion and he still had them. Was then given a drug to take to help when they flared up, for break through migraines. It was Ubrelby 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 Ubrelby NDC , lot number 1843724 and expiry of Jul2022. He started this in Apr or in May after his first visit with neurologist, (withheld). During the same time, he had the migraines he 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. They went away and stopped. He then started to have back stuff, pains that started in Mar or Apr. 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. Then his lower back got so painful he could hardly walk and so he went to an orthopedist thinking it could be a pinched nerve. They did x-rays but could not see anything that caused this kind of pain. They didn't give him anything, but in 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. It was the kind that hurt 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 May 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; it was like getting a shot in his arm. Again, he no longer has these. No problems with vaccines in 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 2 1/2 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. Extending from the tip of his fingers all the way up to the shoulders, in his left arm especially causes the wrist to hurt. 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. Was given Tramadol for that pain. Unable to provide NDC, Lot, or expiry from orange pharmacy 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. cardiologist asked about testing done with the primary care provider. Had ANA testing done with primary care and that test came back with no arthritis in the hands on unknown date. Mentions he had a heart attack at age 38 before he had Covid vaccine, since he is 64 now. He has not had 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. Still having feet and hands swelling. He had a heart attack in the past or how it will affect his muscles in his heart because he does not want to find out later that it had affected his heart, and nobody knew. Had MRI of the brain, blood vessels and nerves ordered by his Neurologist as well. The outcome of events was recovered

I have a history of Anaphylaxis, I carried episode pens for years. I forgot my episode pens that evening but I carried my own benadryl. I stopped the reaction by drinking liquid Benadryl. I was later transported to the ER via ambulance for monitoring and also for being groggy to the Benadryl.

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. He had a heart attack in the past or how it will affect his muscles in his heart because he does not want to find out later that it had affected his heart, and nobody knew. The patient also had an magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, blood vessels and nerves ordered by his Neurologist as well. The outcome of peripheral vision bad, his vision was bad; visual distortion was recovered in Mar2021; pains in upper thighs was recovered in May2021; lower back got so painful so that he could hardly walk was recovering; felt like bubbles in muscles like they pop was unknown while the other events was not recovered.

myocardial infarction; Fluid; Shortness of breath; Chest pain; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse (patient's wife). A 64-year-old male patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0180), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 11Jun2021 10:00 (64-year-old at time of vaccination) as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included diagnosed allergies, compromised immune status, respiratory illness, genetic/chromosomal abnormalities, endocrine abnormalities (including diabetes) and obesity. There was no family medical history relevant to adverse event. There were no concomitant medications. The patient previously received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0186), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 21May2021 (64-year-old at time of vaccination) for COVID-19 immunization. There were no vaccines administered on same date with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect. There were no other vaccinations within four weeks prior to the first administration date of the suspect vaccine. The patient experienced chest pain on 17Jun2021, fluid and shortness of breath on 25Jun2021, and myocardial infarction on an unspecified date. Patient's wife (a registered nurse, recently retired) just wanted to report this. She can't say that it is the vaccine or anything. Her husband received the second COVID-19 Vaccine on 11Jun2021 and he died at the emergency room 2 weeks later of a cardiac event. She couldn't do the report online because it was making her the one she was reporting on. Chest pain: She took him to the emergency room on 25Jun2021. He had been having chest pain that he reported to her that Monday before. He told her that it actually started the Thursday before on 17Jun2021. He had some chest pain that felt a little better over the weekend, then Monday it was worse. He wasn't a complainer, but he was obviously having chest pain. He was very stubborn and so he just kind of let it progress and it got worse during the week. He wouldn't go to the doctor. She kept telling him she read about myocarditis mostly with adolescent males. She thought what if it is something like that. Time of Onset of Chest pain: He reported it on Monday that he had chest pain on Thursday. She became aware when he woke up at 06:30 on 21Jun2021 and she knew something was wrong when he went for the Ibuprofen. Fluid and shortness of breath: The day she took him to the emergency room the chest pain had worsened and he had fluid and shortness of breath. The fluid and shortness of breath started on 25Jun2021. Death: He died on 25Jun2021. The cause of death was a myocardial infarction. They didn't do an autopsy. The reason they gave for not being able to do an autopsy was they were overwhelmed with drug overdoses and homicides. Indication for COVID-19 Vaccine: He didn't want it, but he needed to go back to the office and didn't want to wear a mask. Adverse events required a visit to emergency room. Investigations: She doesn't have his medical records yet. Essentially they were recording him. She can't believe she got him in in a wheelchair. Immediately they were doing resuscitation efforts. Relevant Tests was reported as none. The outcome of myocardial infarction was fatal; outcome of other events was unknown. The patient died on 25Jun2021. No autopsy was performed. The cause of death was a myocardial infarction. Causality: the reporting nurse has no opinion. She just thinks that the patient didn't randomly die any of his other 64 years. It may be a coincidence.; Sender's Comments: The event myocardial infarction with fatal outcome is considered unrelated to suspect product (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Lot Number: EW0180). The compromised immune status, respiratory illness, genetic/chromosomal abnormalities, endocrine abnormalities (including diabetes) and obesity may explain as alternative cause.; Reported Cause(s) of Death: Myocardial infarction

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.

I had gotten the vein ablation treatment several years ago for varicose veins, and the problems I had went away, but one week after the first shot, my calf muscle was swollen and felt sore and aching, and the rest of the leg was in pain, just like it was before getting the vein operation. The varicose veins returned and my leg now has prominent black and blue areas on it, like it had before my surgery. I'm returning to the vein clinic in two weeks for them to look at it. My leg still hurts. I should also add that my arm is still sore where they gave me the shot. My strength has not yet fully returned, even though I work out in the gym regularly.

Received second COVID 19 vaccine in left arm on 03-08-2021. Woke up on 03-09-21 with pain under my left arm pit. Looked at my arm pit in the mirror. My lymph node was swollen approximately the size of a tennis ball and hanging down approximately 4" under my left arm pit. I tucked the lymph node back under my arm and squeezed my arm against my side for approximately 1 hour. The lymph node no longer hung under my arm pit. I then used ice pack and a heating pad to for the next 5 days aid in reducing the swelling. As of this date (04-02-2021) the lymph node is still slightly swollen approximately 1" to about 1 1/2". A little tender when pushing on it, but not painful. This was the only side effect I had after receiving both Pfizer Covid 19 vaccinations.

Only slight injection site pain for first shot. With the 2nd shot, I had pain at injection site that radiated into my shoulder 8-15 hours after initial injection. Noticed swollen lymph glands in armpit of vaccinated arm after 24 hrs. All these particular symptoms disappeared after 36-48 hrs. Along with these symptoms I began to have very loud tinnitus which I have suffered from for years but nothing to this volume. Approximately 11 days after the 2nd dose I came home from working a short day and after a meal began to feel like my blood pressure was up because my head felt pressured and I could tell my heart was racing. Checked my blood pressure and it was at rest 140/105 w/ 96 bpm. I am not on any bp meds because I have never been prone to high blood pressure. Bp prior to this occurrence has always been in the 117-120/76-80 range with a bpm of around 64-70. Chest pain radiate from front to back to front and stayed that way until I went to emergency room 3 days later believing I may have had a heart attack. I was administered an EKG, had blood serum tests and a CT scan - all of which were normal and or showing no signs of a heart attack. I was kept overnight for observation with blood being drawn middle of the night and vitals being monitored. The morning of the next day I was administered a stress test which I apparently passed no problem.

On the right side of the body, there was a 3 inch strip of hives/rash from arm pit and collar bone area to waist, hip and pelvic area. I did take Benadryl. On 3/21/2021 at 10am, the rash increased from neck to groin, legs and arms and sprinkled on the back and across the shoulder to buttocks. I continued to take Benadryl. The hives had also spread to my face. My eyelids and cheeks were swollen. I had a fever of 101.3. I did take Tylenol for the fever. On 3/22/2021 the hives on the chest greatly improved but the hives on the back and face had worsen. I could barely open my left eye and my face was swollen. Around midnight 3/23/2021 I decided to go to the ER since my face, mouth and hands begin to swell. At the ER, the doctors said I had an allergic reaction to the vaccine and was given Prednisone and Tylenol and was discharged with a prescription for prednisone to continue. I took the prednisone and everything seem to improve. It took about 3 day for the body rash to go away. On 3/26/2021 a chicken pox like patch appeared on my face to the right of my chin. The rash looked like raised pustules. I went to the doctor on 3/27/2021 and was diagnosed with herpes and I was prescribed Valtrex. It took about a week for the herpes to go away. I have photographs of the rash if needed for more documentation.

There was no issue from the vaccination itself; sore arm, a bit tired and achy the next day only. I was stung multiple times by hornets yesterday, and the reaction to the stings was much more severe that what I have experienced in the past. My wife has also experienced the same thing with stings she has received since getting our second shot. basically swelling, redness in ~2" radius from the sting location, itchy as heck. Typically I would have ~0.3-0.5" redness radius. Took Benadryl (25mg) no other issues other than the reaction to this still is much worse than in the past, and i was wondering about the vaccine (pfizer) possibly influencing this and figured i'd report my experience.

A 66-years-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for Injection, Batch/Lot number: EW0169) via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm on 14Apr2021 around 15:00 to 15:30 as dose 1, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included atrial fibrillation, patient was diagnosed years ago, before his stroke in 2015, a long time ago, cardiac failure congestive, aortic valve disease, cerebrovascular accident, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, last year patient had a blood infection, so he had to take four antibiotics. The patient's concomitant medications included rivaroxaban (XARELTO) taken for atrial fibrillation. It was reported that patient received the first dose of the vaccine in mid-April and got sick 2 days later(18Apr2021). Patient had a fever of 104. Caller took him to the doctor and patient was diagnosed sepsis. Patient was in the hospital and was then tested for and diagnosed with Endocarditis due to the sepsis. Patient was currently in a rehab facility and was weak. The rehab facility wanted to give patient the second dose of the covid vaccine. But the rehab facility was not sure if they will get the Pfizer covid vaccine. Reporter was worried about patient getting a second dose of anything. This was not the first-time patient has had endocarditis. Patient has been diagnosed with it before. Patient has a history of congestive heart failure, a bad aortic value, past stroke, and diabetes. They do not know if patient still had endocarditis, but patient has completed the antibiotics. They are unable to test patient again for endocarditis because he is in such bad shape. Patient had one side that was weak, and then he fell and broke his hip. Patient was not a candidate for open heart surgery because of his enlarged heart. Before patient received the first dose of the covid vaccine, patient was sleeping all the time and reporter thought it was due to the sepsis. The doctor told reporter that the sepsis was there before patient got the first dose of the covid vaccine. Patient has A-Fib and takes Eliquis. It was reported that patient had a stroke while he was in the hospital. Patient fell because of the weakness from his stroke. The second fall put him back in the hospital. Patient was in poor shape; his blood sugar was in the 600s. Before patient went to the hospital, he was sleeping all of the time, and he lost his appetite. They did not know if patient still has endocarditis because he could not have the follow up procedure done because he was in bad shape. Patient had weakness and fell and broke his hip. Patient was currently in rehab for physical therapy. Reporter clarifies that she took patient to the emergency room, and then he was admitted to the hospital. Patient's fever did not start out at 100 degrees, it gradually went up to 104 degrees. By the second or third day, patient's fever got up to 104 degrees. Reporter is back to square one for help. Reporter is asking if there is anyone who would know what to do. Patient's cardiologist said for patient to get the second dose of the covid vaccine. Reporter knows that no one had that in the clinical trial. Before the covid vaccine, patient was having a crown done in his mouth. Last year patient had a blood infection, so he had to take four antibiotics. Reporter thinks they were called amoxicillin, and they were 500mg each. Patient had to take them all at once as a preventive. Patient is on a lot of things, that reporter does not even know. Patient has had a lot of things done to his heart. Patient has had to have ablations. Patient has a very bad heart. Patient has a question about herself. She had the covid vaccine and had no reactions. She is on Celebrex 200mg. Reporter stopped taking a day and a half before the covid vaccine. Reporter is asking if she could have messed herself up by taking an anti-inflammatory, and if taking Celebrex could have prevented her from getting the full effect. Prior to taking Covid vaccine her husband has had Endocarditis, congestive heart failure, bad heart valve and a stroke. 1st dose of vaccine mid-April. 2 days later had a fever of 104 and was admitted to the hospital with sepsis. The sepsis caused endocarditis again. Husband is in rehab facility, and they want him to take a second dose. Should he be getting 2nd dose of Pfizer or a different Covid vaccine. Wife wondering if husband should get 2nd dose at all. Reporter does not think that this has anything to do with the covid vaccine, since they know which bacteria caused it. Reporter thinks that maybe patient getting the first dose of the covid vaccine put patient over the edge. This is the second time that patient has had vegetation, the first time was last year. Reporter thinks that all of patient's doctors are panicking over the covid vaccine. Reporter knows that patient is in bad shape. In the clinical trial, there was nothing in there about congestive heart failure, or nothing about endocarditis. Patient may still have endocarditis. Reporter does not know what will happen to patient if he gets the second dose of the covid vaccine. Reporter states that unfortunately patient does not go to the best cardiologist. Reporter thinks that patient is so bad off, that he could be on palliative care. The only reason reporter waited so long to call Pfizer is because patient is in rehab now, and they might be getting in the Pfizer covid vaccine. They asked reporter if she wanted patient to get the second dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine. They should get them in on 16Jul2021. Reporter said yes, about a week ago, but it has been on her mind to call and ask the source. Reporter took patient to the hospital, and the doctors diagnosed him with sepsis: Patient was not willing to go to the hospital at first. Patient could not get out of bed. Patient was not eating or drinking. Reporter was trying to give him stuff. Reporter is not a scientist. An infectious disease doctor told reporter that patient already had sepsis before the covid vaccine. Patient was in terrible shape. Patient had a stroke while he was in the hospital. They figured out he had a stroke about five days after being in the hospital. After the stroke, patient had two weeks of physical therapy there. Dates of Hospitalization: He was in the hospital for a few weeks. Patient was home for two days he fell because of the weakness from his stroke. The second fall put him back in the hospital. Patient had to get a partial hip replacement. For about a week now, patient has been in rehab. Patient has A-Fib, since the stroke, he is not on Eliquis. Patient was not on Eliquis before. Patient also has hypertension, but it is under control. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of endocarditis and fell and broke his hip. The outcome of the events was unknown.

I received the pfizer vaccine on 12/19/20 and 1/9/21. I am a physician. My only immediate reaction was some pain at the site of injection which subsided within a day. About 2 months after the vaccine I began to notice severe itching which did not respond to local steroid creams or antihistamines. At about 3 months post vaccine the pruritis became intolerable and I saw a dermatologist and later an allergist. By that time I was starting to develop bullous lesions and I was started on prednisone, which relieved the symptoms but every time I tried to come off the prednisone the itching would recur. I had a punch biopsy which diagnosed "epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. Currently I am taking prednisone 20 mg/d and dapsone 50 mg 2x per day with good results. I never had an autoimmune disease before and thing that the vaccine may heave triggered this reaction. I have had multiple vaccines in the past, including yearly flu vaccine without incident, but this was the first rna based vaccine for me, obviously.

About 3 weeks later he woke up in the morning, his arm was swollen from the elbow down to his fingers, so swollen that he was not able to make a fist which took a week to 10 days to go back down to normal He went to the doctor and they sent him for x-rays of the elbow, which showed arthritis and nothing else. they took his BP on both sides to see if there was a difference, there was a 15 point difference in that. His doctor decided to do an US to see why there was a difference in that pressure. The US was a week later showed that he had a blockage underneath his right collarbone, narrowing with no plaque. He has had surgery on his carotid artery 6 years ago, so they sent a report to his vascular doctor. Talking with him they blockage is 50% to 99% and he asked his staff that he has had CAT scans prior to that due to the carotid surgery and they felt that they had prior CAT scans that showed no blockage. The vascular surgeon is going to watch it for now as it shows no plaque in the artery and is not sure if it is due to the vaccine or not. They told him to call us and file the report. He is having light headedness daily, which he did not have prior to the vaccine.

Pancreatitis in tail of pancreas; fever (101.2F) for four days; left side abdominal pain; diverticulitis; headache; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician reporting on behalf of patient. A 66-year-old male patient received BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) via an unspecified route of administration on 08Apr2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EP7533) as 1st dose single for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included ongoing high cholesterol which was diagnosed decades ago at least, kidney stone. Concomitant medication included simvastatin (strength: 20mg) from 2011 and ongoing. No additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer suspect. The reporting physician is the patient's primary care physician. The patient came to the physician's office on 16Apr2021 for the fever, left sided abdominal pain, and headache which had been going on for 4 days in Apr2021. Physician reported that the patient thought his left-sided abdominal pain was caused by a kidney stone. Because of the high fever of 101.2 and the persistence of 4 days of fever, the patient was admitted to the hospital. Patient had an elevated white blood cell count of 13000. The patient had a very high D-dimer test which kept rising. The patient's C-Reactive Protein was very high. white blood cell count was 12.6 on admission and went to 6.8 after IV antibiotics were administered. The patient's fever resolved within 24 hours of starting IV antibiotics and fluids. When queried for seriousness criteria, physician reported that the patient's headache was just nagging. Physician reported that he doesn't have the patient's chart, but he is guessing that the patient's headache resolved within 3 days of admission to hospital. Regarding pancreatitis in tail of pancreas, physician reported that there was a possibility that the patient's abdominal pain was diverticulitis, it was unclear if the inflammation was from diverticulitis or the pancreas. Physician reported that the patient had a GI consult. Physician reported that the GI provider did an MRI on the patient's abdomen and the final word was pancreatitis. Physician reported that since the patient was hospitalized, all of the inflammatory markers, D-dimer, sed rate, CRP, have come down. Physician stated something happened. The patient has no risk factors for pancreatitis. He doesn't drink, isn't on any medications that would cause pancreatitis, doesn't have high triglycerides, and doesn't have gallstones; the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine was the only variable. Physician is thinking that the whole inflammatory process was part of a reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine. Patient is clinically recovered, he was hospitalized from 16Apr2021 to 22Apr2021. Physician reported that the patient hasn't been checked radiologically but the physician is hoping to repeat the patient's MRI in a couple of weeks. He eventually got better and went home. He is now wondering if he should get the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Physician is a little hesitant to tell the patient whether or not the patient should get the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Physician does not know if the patient's adverse events were related to the Covid-19 vaccine and stated that risking another pancreatitis episode is a big deal. The patient's lipase never went up unless it was high 4 days before admission. Physician reported that the patient didn't seek attention then. Patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included D-dimer: 416ng/mL (16Apr2021), 959 ng/mL (18Apr2021), 933 ng/mL (19Apr2021), 818 ng/mL (20Apr2021), 842 ng/mL (21Apr2021), 686 ng/mL (22Apr2021); White blood cell count: 12600 (16Apr2021), 6800 (22Apr2021); C-reactive Protein: 148 ng/mL (16Apr2021), 109 ng/mL (18Apr2021), 84 ng/mL (20Apr2021), 73 ng/mL (21Apr2021), 51 ng/mL (22Apr2021), less than 1 ng/mL (12May2021); CT abdomen (16Apr2021): Inflammation in tail of pancreas; Covid-19 test: negative on 16Apr2021 and 18Apr2021; Erythrocyte sedimentation rate: 68 mm/hour (19Apr2021), 20 mm/hour (12May2021); Blood cultures: negative on 16Apr2021; Alk phos: 123 IU/L (26Apr2021), 85 IU/L (12May2021); ALT: 46 IU/L (26Apr2021), 40 IU/L (12May2021); GGT (Normal range: Up to 65 IU/L): 92 IU/L (30Apr2021), 59 IU/L (12May2021); CT angiogram chest, abdomen, pelvis on Apr2021 and revealed negative, no thrombotic event (Apr2021). MRI Abdomen: Pancreatitis localized to tail of pancreas (Apr2021); CT head was Negative (Apr2021). Outcome of diverticulitis was unknown, outcome of other events was recovered in Apr2021. The reporting physician assessed fever as serious with seriousness criteria hospitalization, left sided abdominal pain is serious with seriousness criteria medically significant and pancreatitis is serious with seriousness criteria medically significant, disabling. Physician reported that the Covid-19 vaccine potentially yes caused the patient's abdominal pain, but he did not know if the headache and pancreatitis were related or not to the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. Physician reported that in the absence of anything else, he is suspecting that the patient's headache and pancreatitis were caused by the Covid-19 vaccine. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.; Sender's Comments: Based on the information currently available, a contributory role of BNT162B2 to reported events cannot be fully excluded. Case will be reassessed if additional information becomes 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.

My husband has had a fever and extreme exhaustion every day, all day. for 16 days, since he go the Pfizer vaccine. He is retaining water, does not sleep at night, has heavy night sweats, and is emotionally spent. He has no appetite and forces himself to eat. He tastes what little food he eats. He visited his family doctor, a gastroenterologist, and has been in the emergency room two times for sheer exhaustion and pain. He was released both times after tests. Each time, no one could find a cause and no one sent him to other doctors for help. They would not admit him because there was no guarantee he could see other doctors any faster than if he were at home making appointments. He was referred to an infectious disease specialist by the gastroenterologist, but that appointment isn't until March 9, 2021. He will have faded even more by then.

Two days after vaccination had swelling in both wrists and both hands and fingers. Seeming arthritic condition. Never had any type of arthritis or swelling of hands or wrists. Slight pain in hands and inability to grip or hold items. First took acemetacin for several days with no relief. then tried normal aspirin for several days. After two weeks someone suggested taking ibuprofen. I took 200mg per day and found slight relief. Contacted my PCP on 2/28/2021 to request a video visit that occurred on 3/3/2021 at 8:00 am. Doctor agreed that swelling and arthritic condition was the result of vaccination and advised to take 600 mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours for a week. Have had some relief from this medication.

The patient states that he had a bilateral hand /forearm dermatitis that was getting better when he received his first dose of Pfizer vaccine. Thereafter in about 24 hours the dermatitis erupted again and he developed hand swelling, redness and itching. he consulted his physician and was given oral prednisone at 50mg /d for 7 days which calmed the dermatitis. We reviewed the possibility of his rash erupting again after he receives dose 32--for which he is here today--and the possibility that the previous corticosteroids that he was given might inhibit a full immune response from the vaccine. He opts to receive the second dose today anyway and it is administered. This is to report the worsening of the dermatitis after the first dose was given. He still had remnants of a dermatitis (wrinkled skin, etc)

swollen lymph node in the neck; swollen face and throat; swollen face and throat; arm pain; throat irritation; tightness around the top of his head; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. This contactable consumer (patient) reported himself that a 67-year-old male patient received first dose of bnt162b2 (Pfizer-Biontech COVID-19 Vaccine, solution for injection, batch/lot number: EN6201), via an unspecified route of administration on 19Feb2021 14:00 on left arm as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included narcolepsy and blood pressure high. Patient's medical history (including any illness at time of vaccination) was none. He got the flu vaccine in Nov1994, and 2 weeks later he got the flu, and it was the worst he has ever had. Concomitant medications were not reported. The patient received second dose of bnt162b2 (Pfizer-Biontech COVID-19 Vaccine, solution for injection, batch/lot number: EP6955) via an unspecified route of administration on 15Mar2021 at 11:30 on left arm as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. On 07Mar2021, about a week ago, he was outside on his deck and his face was in direct sunlight, and his face started to swell up and was tightening on one side. Where his face was covered nothing happened, but the side of his face that was in the direct sunlight started to swell up and tightened. Stated that his face felt heavy around his lips where it was in the sun. He went inside, and his wife told him he was having an allergic reaction to something and to take Benadryl. He took the Benadryl and splashed ice-cold water on his face, and the swelling went down. On 14Mar2021, that Sunday, he noticed a lymph node on his shoulder by his neck on the same side where he got his vaccine, at the 5th level according to the research he did. States that it's rubbery and movable so he didn't know what it was, but it seemed to be getting larger until yesterday. On 19Feb2021, there was no pain, but he did notice a little swelling around his throat. He has a doctor's appointment on Tuesday to see his primary care doctor. Clarified that his face swelled up and tightened on 07Mar2021. He has not gone back out in direct sunlight since this happened. He only had the face swelling and tightening for that day. Once he went inside and took Benadryl and put ice on his face it went down. Clarified that he noticed the lymph node on 14Mar2021, and it was now persisting. When asked when he first noticed the swelling around his throat, he stated that he has had throat irritation and tightness around the top of his head since the day of the 1st dose which was 19 Feb 2021 at 2PM. He also had arm pain that also started that same day, and went down his arm to the wrist, and up his shoulder to his neck, but the pain only lasted 1.5 days. On the side where the lymph node was, there was some pain in his upper throat when he touches it; when they measure the muscles in the neck, it was that 1st level where the pain was; but the pain was only on the left side. There were none other relevant diagnostic and confirmatory test results for events. The outcome of the event swollen lymph node in the neck was not recovered; swollen face and throat and throat irritation was recovered while outcome of the remaining event was unknown.

I had surgery on my back in July 2020. After receiving the vaccine in March of 2021, my scar started itching about 2 months after . Eventually the itchiness spread to my arms, back, legs, belly and especially my back. A bubble appeared in the palms of my hands. If it was touched, it was itchy. It then spread to my fingers. The more I rubbed them together to receive the itching, the worse it got. I went to the doctor who at first thought it was psoriasis. She then determined it might be eczema. I went home and then it got worse. I went back and the doctor prescribed triamcinolone 0.5%. I put this on the bubbles on my hands and fingers. It relieved the itching but it has dried my skin and it is now peeling. It is like when your hand is in water for a long time. Even though the itching was relieved, there is still itching present. The doctor told me to use the triamcinolone for 10 days and after the 10 days, just use as needed. The triamcinolone has overall helped. Heat makes the itching worse.

He also stated that used to be 6'6", but as he gets older, he has shrunk. He did not provide his height now and he shrunk before he got the vaccine and mentioned that over time everyone gets shorter as disc gets compressed. He also stated that he was on an antibiotic for a sty on left eyelid for 5 days and he took first one Monday and Tuesday and got COVID shot on Wednesday and then a couple of days after, maybe a day or two or three, his face did not hurt, but when he went to floss his teeth, when he put fingers in mouth on left side, the side of face hurt a little bit. A couple of days later, it moved into his lips and he did not have a lot or expiration for the azithromycin as it was in a pharmacy vial and they told him to come back in 4 weeks, which would be this Wednesday. He called drug store on 02 Apr 2021 and they said to call physician and he called them on Friday and got a call to come in on 06 Apr and told him to take Benadryl. He stated that he was kind of skinny and when you see people in TV when they give injections, they grab the skin in the arm. There was not a whole lot of meat or muscle in his shoulder to grab, from his left shoulder down to elbow, he had a black and blue bruise from inside of elbow up to shoulder and he noticed it a couple of days later. There was still some of it there. He stated the start date was a day or two later after 17Mar2021. It was finally fading away and turning lighter and lighter.

The patient was recovering from the events of contusion, lip pain and facial pain and outcome was unknown for the other events. No follow-up attempts are possible; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained.

Vacinnated on Friday..following Sunday evening noticed bumps, blisters, hives on both of my hands in the pad areas of my hands. extended into the tips of index fingers and thumbs. very sensitive to the touch. I took some Benedril which helped with swelling. that was the most severe after effect. I'm pretty sure it was the vaccine because i had not been anywhere that weekend and had not put my hands on anything unusual that i don't normally touch. It only happened to my hands. Other than that i had minor flu like symtoms from the shot, achiness and slight fatigue feeling. I had an ER doctor look at my hands when i went in today to get help for my bronchitis, which i had some before the covid shot. It got worse on Monday. He perscribed prednisone which has pretty much taken the hand spots away..i was tested negative for covid today(1/19/21) by the way.

Following the first shot I had typical flu-like symptoms - fever, aches in joints and muscles, headache and brain fog. The second shot had the same symptoms as the first but after about 22 hours I apparently had some type of anaphylactic reaction - I remember going to the bathroom - but I woke up on the floor by the bed, and could not think how to get back in bed. My wife called 2 neighbors who helped me up. It was difficult to form complete sentences. I was transported by ambulance to ER. The ER ran a battery of blood tests, CT scan and chest x-ray. The ER doctors and oncologists concluded that I must have had a delayed reaction to the vaccine. Today, April 28, things are back to normal.

11 days after first vaccination, in left arm I noticed lymph node swelling in left neck between ear and clavicle. Consulted Dr. He recommended getting next vaccination in right arm. Did so, and noticed no change in left neck and no swelling in right neck. Dr. arranged for ultrasound exam of neck. Findings suspicious of malignancy led to CAT scan with contrast, fine needle biopsy, and PET scan . All indicated likely malignancy and a potentially primary tumor on the left tonsil. Excisional biopsy of tonsil confirmed HPV-mediated Squamous cell carcinoma. Seven weeks of cis-platin chemotherapy and radiation were implemented starting May 18 and planned to continue until July 7, 2021.

About 4 hours after the second dose I began the most intense headache I have ever had. I kept expecting it to go away. After 10 days of enduring this I went to the ER. I was admitted with blood clots and bleeding from the face. (but probably more wrong) I was initially treated for a PE and meds to try to stop the headache. Nothing seemed to work. About 3 days into the hospital stay, my pre-existing Stills disorder began to show. I was then treated with 60mg of prednisone daily to control the Stills. About the same time, we discovered that a standard migraine medicine would control the extreme headache, morphine would not. My CRP results were off the charts and almost 4 months later it is still high. My treating doc says 2 more months of prednisone treatment. I had an immediate weight loss of 25 pounds in the hospital. I am struggling to this day to put the weight back on. I have lost hearing in my left ear as a result.

The patient is a poor historian and history is obtained from him and his partner. His symptoms have started yesterday after receiving the second dose of a Covid vaccine. The couple went to eat a meal of Chinese food, and that evening the patient developed persistent nausea and vomiting. He had multiple episodes of emesis. According to his partner, he continued to have episodes of emesis this morning. The emesis was nonbilious and nonbloody, described as watery. The patient says he woke up this morning and may have felt some palpitations. He thinks the palpitations may have been worse than usual. He says he generally just felt unwell. He could not get out of bed and move around very much due to the nausea and vomiting. He says that for this reason, he activated EMS who brought him to the hospital. Regarding his atrial fibrillation, he says he is mostly compliant with taking his medications, however he did not take any of his home medications today.In the ER, he was hypertensive to 141/111 and tachycardic to 141, tachypneic to 23.

He was treated with an LR bolus 500 cc but due to the findings of increased pulmonary vascular congestion, was diuresed with Lasix 80 mg IV x1. Blood cultures x2 were obtained.

Approximately 2 weeks after vaccine administered, I started getting prickly, sore sensations in my feet and legs. Mostly feet. I asked my GP if it's possible that the vaccine could cause this. He said it's possible, but not likely. My feet became quite tender, almost like shingles pain. Doctor gave me 6 day course of prednisone for my earache, and said "we'll possibly kill two birds with one stone". The prednisone helped with the ear problem, but not the prickly, stabbing sensations. So, I went ahead and got my second covid vaccination on 2/13/21 and the problem didn't get any worse or better.
