I think I am having a bad reaction to my covid shots. The first shot was 1/31; a week later on 2/7 I started having headaches that travel around my head: some are behind my eyes and my teeth ache; some more like migraines that go up the back of my head; some more on the top of my head or on the side. My sense of taste changed. My second shot was 2/27. The day after I slept all day. The headaches continued (I have had a headache of one kind or another since 2/7). I had a tooth that broke off last June and was removed on March 8. I thought the tooth was infected and part of the headache problems, but since then I have been having really bad fibro pain and for the week of 3/8- 12 I ran a fever, had chills and more headaches. I was on amoxicillin from 3/8 to 3/14, but the tooth was not that badly infected and is healing well. The headaches do not seem to relate to the tooth. I have had a headache every day since 2/7 of various intensity and in different areas of my head. I am extremely fatigued and need to nap some days. My fibromyalgia symptoms are worse than they ever have been and some nights keep me awake. I also muscle stiffness and spasms in my neck occasionally. This is not normal for me. I saw a ARNP on 3/16 and she tested me for neurologic symptoms. Here are her notes: NEUROLOGIC: negative findings: speech normal, mental status intact, cranial nerves 2-12 intact, gait, including heel, toe, and tandem walking normal, Romberg negative, muscle tone normal, muscle strength normal, rapid alternating movements normal, finger to nose normal, reflexes normal and symmetric I have a video appointment with my primary care provider 3/26 to discuss this further

I don't know if one has anything to do with other but I am very suspicious about it because my blood is too thin and my body me things don't heal the way they supposed to. Consumer stated, "I have been hold for almost for 2 hours because what happens I left my number as requested for call back. I got a call back in another 2 minutes. When I press to receive a call it disconnected. So I had to start all over again. So it is been like 2 hours adventure. Firstly I need to say that someone I told to call a second number well disconnect me twice but I have something call a report number that the person I think it has same job title of you. I am not certain but her name is (Name) and she gave me report number. She asked me all the questions, I answered all the her questions including my 28Jan2021 Pfizer injection which was my first injection and I have question referring to my taking Warfarin and wanted to if there was interaction because I went to doctor today to see my blood was instead 2.5 to 3, it was 4.9 which is extremely high and the only thing I have taken, I have done differently was to have my Pfizer injection on 28Jan2021. Consumer stated, "It is already in your system because as I said before I have report number. Should I give the report number. The person I spoke a long time ago that with I have been phone said that she information from my card when you they gave that card for you come like second time for the second dose or booster as I told this call." When probed for if the consumer call the Drug safety earlier: Consumer stated, "That thing I am telling I spoke to someone by the name of (Name). She started asking by same question you did. That is why I am trying to tell you that person already asked me everything and give me report number. She wanted to transfer me because she says it is wrong department. I started here same information again. I have been on phone for far too long for this to be evening. The report number is 'number'. Consumer stated, "Concern is that I have Lupus and I take Warfarin. My INR report does part of what to do when you have lupus. You have blood measure monthly or whatever times that necessary. It is very high. It should be a range just listen to number 2.5 to 3. My report they showed me that I am 4.9, that is big number. It is like 2 margin over. I am trying to find out if the injection had interaction with warfarin that is medication I take. Blood thinner I take because I have lupus with antiphospholipid symptoms. I am trying to find out if the injection had any interaction with warfarin the blood thinner. That is the information I am trying to to get. When I go to a surgeon tomorrow because I have wound on my foot from surgery that I had and it is not healing, it is just draining. I don't know if one has anything to do with other but I am very suspicious about it because my blood is too thin and my body me things don't heal the way they supposed to. The consumer has taken the Pfizer Covid Vaccine: Consumer stated, "That is the first thing I said. I told you and then I am telling about warfarin. I said I wanted to know if the Pfizer vaccine which I took on 28Jan2021 as I said that before if it had conflicting reactions with warfarin. I explained to you I have lupus and I also have antiphospholipid syndrome which cause me to take warfarin medication. I want to know if the Pfizer injection had any negative interaction with warfarin the blood thinner." When consumer informed about Medical Information: Consumer stated, "That person transfer to me before. It was drop. So can you connect me to number. She tried to transfer me and I got nowhere to call just died. If I call I am gonna be on waiting for all over again. I already had experience consumer stated, "I have already been answered all of your questions that is why I have a reference report number that I gave you. I have been answered whole time questions. I answered everything. I just wanna be connected to get somebody because I am tired of being on the phone." Is there a product complaint to report was no. Consumer was provided with the number of Medical Information number and was requested to select option 3, timings as and 8 am to 8 pm Monday to Sundays as per (EST). Investigation Assessment: Yes. She had the first dose of the Pfizer covid19 vaccine on 28Jan2021. She is nervous. She lives with lupus and antiphospholipid syndrome, which means her blood is too thick. She is on a blood thinner, she takes warfarin. She is asking if the vaccine could interfere with warfarin. Today she had her INR checked and it was was 4.9. States a stable reading is between 2 and 3. The only different thing she has had in her body is the vaccine. Reports she is nervous and scared. She had surgery on her feet and she has a wound where a thicker scab came off, states it is draining but not drying out. She was thinking maybe this was due to her her INR being high. She will see the surgeon tomorrow. She put a bandaid on her foot where the open wound on her foot is. The next morning she checked her foot and the bandaid was wet. She put some peroxide on it. She read peroxide is not good for open wounds because it kills good bacteria so she used gauze and placed it over the open wound with tape across it. Last month her warfarin dose was 6 mg 5 days a week and 3mg two days a week. As of today she is to take 3mg three days a week and 6mg four days a week. Warfarin is 6mg tablet that is perforated, clarifies it can be broken in half. She does not think her new regimen that she was given today will bring her INR back in the range between 2 and 3. States her INR has never been that high. She will go back to see the nurse in two weeks to get her INR checked. She sees her patient medical record number listed on the card. She says pardon her grunts and moans because she grunts and moans when she moves since she is 76. She feels weird and her eyes are extra dry in 2021. She is nervous about the area where she had surgery on her feet, she does not want it to get infected. She thinks she had surgery on 04Dec2020 to have arthritis in her toes corrected. Outcome of events was unknown.

transferred from shoulder to her neck; shoulder was in pain/ elbow and shoulder were in pain; injection area is a little sore; I cant sleep at night; She can't position her arm in a way that is not painful; deep muscle ache pain; she was miserable; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 76-year-old female patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection, lot number: EL9266, expiration date: Mar2021), via an unspecified route of administration in left arm on 23Feb2021 as single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Patient's medical history included stomach problem and bleeding problems in her stomach. There were no concomitant medications. The patient said that absolutely everything was okay until she went to get the shot, and was even okay the evening of the shot, then it went down hill from there. She said nothing she has that is related to the pain in her arm, or that she feels she should provide. She did not had any other recent vaccinations or started any new medications. The patient stated that the injection area was a little sore and the area became bigger and bigger by Wednesday (24Feb2021). She woke up on Thursday (25Feb2021) and her elbow and shoulder was in pain, described as a dull pain. The patient stated she has a stomach problem where she can't take medicine. She started treating her pain with aspirin cream with Lidocaine. She said that its kind of worked, it didn't take it away, but more manageable. Now it's been 6 days later (01Mar2021), it was reported a deep deep pain in the point she can't sleep at night. She can't position her arm in a way that is not painful. It was getting unbearable. It transferred from shoulder to her neck on Friday (26Feb2021). It got worse Thursday evening and has been the same since. Patient said, "I am not going to get the second shot if this pain does not go away or if I am going to experience this again." The patient was calling about a possible side effect and was wondering if anyone else had it and does it go away. She was suffering, she wanted to know if the pain she is in, that she is still experiencing will go away. She said that she had a deep muscle ache pain to the point she can't sleep at night. Patient stated that her pain began as soreness at injection site that started Wednesday and then it just got worse and worse and became deeper and deeper just between her shoulder and elbow, a deep constant achy pain. During the day when she is using her arm she can kind of forget the pain, but at night there was no comfortable position she can put her arm in without pain, so she has not been sleeping the last 3-4 nights, she can't sleep, she was miserable. She said she would rather get COVID than this, it was ridiculous. As she has bleeding problems in her stomach, she can't take anything to treat the pain, so she was trying to use lidocaine on her arm, which did at first give some relief but no longer works. She said that the only number listed on the bottle was next to "EXP date, LOT: 19C506, EXP: Mar2021 (as reported)." The outcome of the events was not recovered.

She was doing pretty good, and the last thing she had was she felt on her cheeks and noticed a rash on her face, like a prickly heat type rash. Before she went to bed she put Neosporin on it, and when she got up this morning it was almost gone but still has a tiny few bumps. The arm itself did not hurt at all. Feels that it is a stressful situation as to where to get the vaccine and having to travel to get it as it's not available in locations closer to their homes. The people at the pharmacy were great, but had to travel and if it wasn't for her daughter she would probably not have her shot.

On 01Feb2021, the patient was not feeling that great.

Her legs got weak; she lost coordination; anxiety was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue; depression was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue; nervousness was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue; nervousness was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue; She noticed that her blood pressure raised after receiving the first dose of the covid vaccine.; Total exhaustion/she is so tired; could not sleep; She experienced pain at the injection site./Her pain got worse and worse; left or right toe will get stuck; hysterical; she is stressed; did not have complete energy; She states that her illness is too much; This is a spontaneous report from a Pfizer sponsored program received from a contactable healthcare professional (patient). A 76-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2 reported as PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 1 intramuscularly administered in the right deltoid on 30Mar2021 10:00 (Lot number: GR8732 or 6R8732 [as reported]; Expiration Date: 31Jul2021) as a single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included blood pressure/hypertension; had breast cancer twice with the last time was in 2010 to unknown date which was 23 years later than the first time she had it (1987). She had infiltrating ductal cancer, stage one, that was HER-2 positive. She states that this is the most malignant breast cancer. She had to have extensive chemotherapy and also took Herceptin every 3 weeks for a year. The overriding symptom from her cancer was extreme fatigue; has been in chronic fatigue syndrome and in bed for 7 years, she was getting over chemo and she can barely walk. She has trouble walking long distances; had a mastectomy from 2010 to an unknown date without lymph node dissection; had a central node dissection; took a wheelchair to the hospital whenever she received the first dose of the covid vaccine; ongoing anxiety, depression and nervousness which is not new to her. She has had this on and off for the past year; and antihistamine that raises her blood pressure dangerously, it does not matter which kind of antihistamine whether it is Benadryl or over the counter. The only antihistamine that does not raise her blood pressure was a children's allergy medication. She took half of a children's dose. It did not raise her blood pressure, but it did not stop her itching. Family history included her mother's sister and she are very sensitive to medications. She has the same type of problems. As her mother's sister has aged, her problems have gotten better. As caller gets older, her problems are getting worse. Concomitant medication included carvedilol taken for blood pressure on unknown therapy dates. The patient previously took dupilumab (DUPIXENT) for skin conditions that having itching which she had side effects (Lot number: 0LU23A; Expiration date: Feb2023). Dupixent is a medication used for skin conditions that having itching, not cirrhosis, she cannot remember the name of the skin condition. Her skin started itching around Jun2020 or Jul2020. She saw eight different dermatologists. She found a doctor who was an itch specialist. Dupixent is the only thing that is going to work for her because antihistamines raise her blood pressure dangerously; and one time her doctor made a mistake, he ordered her hydroxyzine 25mg PO (Per oral). The doctor did not look on her chart to see her allergy list. She cut the pill in half and took half a dose. By the time she realized what she took, she was having so much itching. She woke up and felt like her head was going to explode and her blood pressure was 220/112. She took three tablets of her antihypertensive medication. She taken carvedilol 3.125mg. She did not even bother going to the hospital because by the time they would have saw her, and treated her, she could have had a stroke. The hospital is slow to treat people. Because she is a nurse practitioner, she knew that 3 tablets would be the correct dose for how high (Apr2021) her blood pressure was. She also previously took Benadryl but that raises her blood pressure dangerously. The patient reported that she received her first dose of the covid vaccine on 30Mar2021 and she had many side effects. She reported that the most predominant symptom is total exhaustion. For the first seven days after receiving the first dose of the covid vaccine, she was in bed for seven days nonstop. She placed a large grocery shopping order. She was able to get up and use the bathroom and cook small meals. She had someone come in to help her with the dishes, and to clean up the house. She talked to her internist of 20 years, and he told her to take the vaccine. Within five minutes, she started getting side effects. She inquired if it was safe to take the second dose of the covid vaccine. She has been so fatigued that she has been in bed for a 3 weeks-time frame and then her Blood pressure went up, it was 200 something, like 223/103. She went to the ER, and the ER said her blood pressure was not bad (Apr2021), they put her in the waiting room, and because she waited so long, she just got up and left the ER. Since she is so tired and her Blood pressure is high, she has made an appointment with the doctor. She added that the second week after receiving the first dose of the covid vaccine, she was able to get up every other day and go somewhere but the next day after she went somewhere, she was in bed all day and did not have complete energy (2021). She added that her refrigerator was going out, so someone drove her to department store 30 minutes away. She walked from the car, to the refrigerator section in department store, walked into the mall to get ice cream and then walked back to the car. By the time she got home, she immediately got back in her bed because she was so worn out. That was on Saturday. She was in bed all day yesterday. This morning, she feels better than yesterday. She thought about going to the store yesterday, but she knew she did not have the energy to go. Someone is coming later today to help her, and they will have to go to the store for her since she does not have any family nearby. She mentioned that the total exhaustion began on 31Mar2021. She took a wheelchair to the hospital whenever she received the first dose of the covid vaccine. She has trouble walking long distances. She called the hospital before she went, and the hospital did not have any wheelchairs she could use. The hospital cleared everything out of the way so they could fit the most patients as possible in the building. She had trouble walking the day that she received her first dose of the covid vaccine. Someone wheeled her in and out using her own wheelchair. She cannot go to the grocery store. Using a wheelchair is the only way she could have in and out. She could walk from her wheelchair into the examination room, and then after she went right back into her wheelchair. She is glad that she called because she does not know what she would have done without a wheelchair. It is hard for her to go on, sometimes she just feels like crying. Her trouble walking does not feel 100 percent, but it has gotten better. She is anxious, depressed and nervous also. Before her breast cancer, she had chronic fatigue. She could volunteer at a clinic for a few hours a week. She had radiation, and that caused exacerbation of her chronic fatigue. Her doctor told her that for some people, chemotherapy will make chronic fatigue better and that chemotherapy could help her chronic fatigue. Before she got chronic fatigue syndrome, she had a lot of energy. She used to work in an ICU that had 15 patients, with ambulatory patients on the outside. She worked six days a week then she transferred to a hospital where she took care of patients after they had open heart surgery. She used to be a very high energy person. Her exhaustion has gotten better, because she can get up every other day and leave the house. She cannot stop doing life. It is difficult for her that she cannot go to the grocery store. After seven days, she could go out every other day. Whenever she went to a certain company, she almost fell. Her legs got weak and she lost coordination on Tuesday (06Apr2021). Since then, it has happened a little bit here and there. It is almost like she is not sure when it will happen. In an instance, she can be working in the house, and her left or right toe will get stuck. This happens to her occasionally after chemotherapy. She noticed that her blood pressure raised after receiving the first dose of the covid vaccine (Apr2021) and she takes medication (small dose of carvedilol) for hypertension. She takes her blood pressure medication every other day. Out of the past four days, her blood pressure has been elevated twice (Apr2021). If her blood pressure is elevated more than normal, her doctor prescribed for her to take an extra dose. Her blood pressure has not been elevated dramatically. She did take an extra dose of carvedilol because her blood pressure was within the scope of her blood pressure expertise. She went to the ER and the ER said her blood pressure was not bad (Apr2021), they put her in the waiting room and because she waited so long she just got up and left the ER. Since she is so tired and her Blood pressure is high, she has made an appointment with the doctor. She also stated that her blood pressure went up yesterday last night (18Apr2021), not right after getting the first dose. Last night at 6:00 PM, she took a nap and after she woke up took her blood pressure, she didn't feel anything in specific, she always takes her blood Pressure pill twice a day anyway. When she checked her pressure, it was 223/120 (Apr2021) and immediately took 2 Carvedilol 3.125mg and went to the ER, by the time she got there it was down significantly (Apr2021), but she is anxious and sat there and waited. They said they were going to do some blood work and an EKG but they left her there, so she decided to take a company home. Her Blood pressure has been up, she then went to sleep and after (Apr2021), it was 189/105, 183/105, and 165/95, she is a nervous wreck. She was ill for a long time, she had cancer twice, now she lives alone, she has been alone for all these weeks, her friends are here and there and come over. The Last 3 weeks she has been alone. She hired someone, but it was expensive. Now she feels hysterical (2021), after she saw her blood pressure, last night she was crying, and called the neighbor and they drove her right to the hospital then she was waiting in the ER for so long. She got her first shot on 30Mar2021 and she couldn't do anything in bed for 7 days, she is supposed to get the second shot tomorrow (20Apr2021) but doesn't want to be in bed again like that. She is anxious, depressed and nervous that began on 03Apr2021. During the week, she is distracted by the market. She has not been able to trade, because she does not trust her judgment right now. She did buy one this morning. Anxiety, depression and nervousness is not new to her which she has had this on and off for the past year. She has a lot going on. She needed to sell her two-story house and move to a one-story house that is easily assessable to healthcare and meals. She thinks this is disabling in face that she does not feel strong enough to make a decision. She cannot make a decision and she does not feel good enough too. Her anxiety, depression and nervousness was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue. She is experiencing awful symptoms. She went to the grocery store, and the stumbled and went into a company. She had to carry her milk and other items in slowly, and little by little. She thought this is awful, and she got into bed. She could not do anything. She mentioned that her illness is too much (2021). She was crying and she lives alone. The patient mentioned that the pain at the injection site began four hours after receiving the first dose of the covid vaccine. She received the vaccine at 10:00 AM then started getting really bad pain about 6:00 PM and then about 10:00PM or 11:00PM, it started to get unbearable. By 12:00AM (31Mar2021), the pain was so bad that she could not sleep because of the pain. She was in agony. She took took Tylenol and it did not touch her pain, but her pain got worse and worse, so she took three Tylenol tablets then they worked. She her friend and asked him to come over since she is afraid to take narcotics. She just laid there in bed and spent all night in agony. She tried a thing she put in the freezer and tried heat. She does not remember if either of those worked. The pain resolved about 2 days after. The patient declined safety report, saying that she is stressed and anxious (2021), she just wants to be transferred for her question. The reporter considered the events fatigue aggravated serious and 'anxiety, depression and nervousness was exacerbated by her terrible fatigue' with seriousness criterion of disability while the events blood pressure raised lower extremities weakness of and coordination impaired as medically significant.

She then did a home call with the doctor and she provided more steroids, an oral pack, and an oral antibiotic for 5 days. She was still having problems with her ears. Mainly her left ear. It goes from ear to ear. She went to the ENT about the earaches which turned out to be infected, and has subsequently been on two rounds of antibiotics, with persistent symptoms that have gotten better over time. Patient wanted to know if this could relate to the COVID Vaccine. She has never had this happen before, and she has been really sick but not this bad. She has had ear problems in the past, but normally the antibiotic liquid drops clear it up. It was like a chronic ear ache. Her earaches were hurting bad. What she is wondering is if it could be a side effect from the first COVID shot. She clarifies that her ears are swollen on the inside. It was an infection somewhere. The antibiotics and steroids have not healed it up. All of these events were still occurring but come and go. For instance, yesterday she had a low temperature but has not yet had one today. The antibiotic ear drops prescribed were Neopoly HC OTSC 1% OTIC SU. NDC: 24208-635-62. Expiry date: Jun2022. She was unsure what the lot was but also sees: 349111. The oral antibiotics she has is Amoxicillin 875mg/125mcg. These are in a pharmacy vial. Use before: 26Jan2022. She was given two steroid shots. One shorter acting and one longer acting. She was unsure of the names. Oral steroid pack: Manufactured by Pharmaceutical name. Prednisone USP 5mg. REV 1016. 314518. lot: 1150419. Expiry date: Feb2022. She also pre-treated with allergic reaction medications. She goes back to the ENT on Thursday. Patient wanted to know if these had happened to anyone before. Outcome of the event pyrexia was unknown, for events ear swelling, ear pain and ear infection was recovering, while for the other events was not recovered.

She had been in her usual state of health until tonight. Assisted living facility staff called. He mentioned that the facility staff had earlier noticed that she was dragging her right foot and and has been needing more assistance with activities. The patient was walking and did not feel well. She was lowered to the ground and had a witnessed cardiac arrest. The ambulance was called and she was reportedly found to have pulseless electrical activity. She was given Epinephrine and Amiodarone with return of pulse. The patient was brought to the Emergency Room and was evaluated by ER physician. EKG showed atrial fibrillation, ventricular rate = 66, RBBB with Brugada pattern. She was emergently brought to the Cath Lab. Cardiac catheterization showed normal coronary arteries but EF 35-40%. Repeat EKG showed atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response = 110, RBBB. Therapeutic hypothermia was initiated. The patient was admitted to the ICU on mechanical ventilation with TV 350 RR 14 PEEP 5. She is sedated with Propofol and Fentanyl IV. She is on Levophed IV. ABG showed pH = 7.22, pCO2 = 53, pO2 = 66, O2 sat = 88%. Lactate level = 9.5. WBC 8.8, Hgb 13.4, Hct 46, Platelets 138. Na 138, K 3.2, Cl 102, bicarb 20, BUN 16, Crea 1.19, estimated GFR = 44 mL/minute. Magnesium 2.7. Glucose levels have ranged from 273-312. Pro-Calcitonin = 0.26. Albumin 3.7. SGOT 262, SGPT 294. Troponin elevated at 47. Pro-BNP = 600. Urinalysis showed large blood. Chest x-ray showed vague peripheral pneumonitis. Endotracheal tube is in place. COVID-19 test by PCR is negative (2/5/21). COURSE IN HOSPITAL The patient was admitted to the ICU and was followed by Pulmonary/Critical Care. Patient was maintained on mechanical ventilation, sedated with propofol and fentanyl IV. Vasopressors were administered (Levophed IV). She was managed with therapeutic hypothermia. She was followed by Cardiology. Foley catheter was inserted for close input/output monitoring. Neuro checks, vital signs, daily weights, pulse oximetry, cardiac telemetry and fingersticks were monitored. She was given sodium bicarbonate IV due to metabolic acidosis. She was also given insulin IV drip. Potassium chloride IV was administered due to hypokalemia. The patient was given amiodarone IV. Platelet count was noted to be low but stable. Glucose levels were within acceptable range. Metabolic acidosis resolved. Hypokalemia resolved. Hypomagnesemia resolved. There were elevated LFTs which improved. Elevated CPK also improved. She was taken off hypothermia protocol. Sedation was decreased and she was able to open her eyes with verbal stimulus but unable to follow commands. Ammonia level was normal. Neurology evaluated the patient. EEG showed left periodic epileptiform discharges consistent with severe diffuse encephalopathy. Chest x-ray revealed right upper lung and left mid lung increasing opacity for which meropenem IV was started. Levophed was discontinued. Initially she had peripheral cyanosis, but this resolved upon discontinuation of vasopressors. Brain MRI was done demonstrating diffuse bilateral small and moderate-sized ischemic foci throughout the cerebellum and cerebellar region suggestive of embolism. There also was chronic marked atrophy and moderate small-vessel gliosis. CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING DEMISE Based on neurologic evaluation, her prognosis for meaningful neurologic recovery was thought to be extremely poor. The patient was evaluated and followed by Palliative Care. She does not have family members and had designated her neighbor friends as her power of attorney. They have known the patient for a ling time and they know that she does not want to live like this. A decision was therefore made for comfort care measures only. Compassionate extubation was performed on February 12, 2021. The patient passed away on February 12, 2021, at 6:39 p.m.

The 2-3 days after the shot my mom got a fever (over 100 degrees) and the chills which we were able to control with Tylenol for the most part. However, over the next 4 weeks, my mom gradually lost the ability to control her bladder function, and her ability to transition between sitting, standing and lying down w/o help. She also exhibited even more difficulty with walking than she did before (shuffling). My mother experienced pain all throughout her body, and the pain became as bad as an 8-9 in a range of 1-10. She struggled to raise her arms, reach her arms out, or grasp objects. She lacked energy, she would sleep for 10 hours every night, and she had difficulty concentrating and remembering what she was reading,

She got the vaccine, did not have any reaction or that she was even given a vaccine. Then around 7:00 PM her arm started to get a little sore but kept moving it and massaging it. She then could not move anything by 10:00 PM, and had gone straight to bed as she felt so bad. She was dizzy, light headed, and these symptoms continued all night and all day Thursday. She dozed to sleep off and on all day Thursday and was in so much pain, didn't have to move to have pain. She is still having some pain today, but feeling much better. She still is a little bit dizzy. Feels as if she laid down she could sleep for a long time. She has pain in her back area, her arms, her hips. She did not take anything for her reaction as was told not to take aspirin and does not use other medications. She feels exhausted and if she moves her arm too much and also her legs then they start to hurt. Getting in and out of bed is easier today, but she could not get them over the bed to get in or out on Wednesday. Her neck also hurt to turn. She had similar symptoms to when she had the COVID virus in November/December. She had been hospitalized for it twice, was informed that she had a stroke after she had passed out.

I am 77. I had the Pfizer vaccine, March 9th, with a terrible reaction starting 2 days after. I couldn't use my brain to think, to read with comprehension, to remember things I wanted to remember and had difficulty finding my words. This lasted for 3 days when the fog began to lift. I also had some shortness of breath(SOB) and very low energy. The CDC has said that when giving the injection it is no longer necessary to aspirate (pull back on the syringe) which I was taught to do as a young nurse to ensure that you are not giving the injection into a vein (blood would appear in the syringe.) It is supposed to be given into the muscle which has plenty of veins so if you don't aspirate, how will you know if you are injecting into a vein? A week later, I ended up going to the local hospital ER because of the SOB and had Chest xray, EKG, brain Cat Scan and blood work which were all normal. I debated about getting the second shot but decided to get it as long as the injector gave the injection as I had been taught. Fortunately she was very experienced and agreed to inject me using the pullback method after I explained what I had gone through the 1st time. So for the second shot I had the sore arm but no other reaction. I think Dr is making a mistake about the pullback decision. Do we even know what happens if the vaccine is injected into a vein? I am not certain if my first shot was injected into a vein because the injector never pulled back to check. I have not heard of anyone else with my experience.

allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine; 1st dose last 22Jan2021 - 2nd dose was on 08Feb2021; 1st dose last 22Jan2021 - 2nd dose was on 08Feb2021; doesn't feel good; one heck of a temperature; By doing what she did, if that negated the COVID vaccine/ That's what she was afraid of; redness and swelling in her right arm; redness and swelling in her right arm; feeling hot all over the body; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer. A 77-years-old female patient received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE, Solution for injection, lot number and expiry date not reported) via an unspecified route of administration on 08Feb2021 at a single dose for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included weakened immune system because of the alcohol allergy (started while 19), and aches and pains. Concomitant medications were not reported. The patient received the first dose of bnt162b2 (expiry date May2021) for COVID-19 immunisation at the age of 77 years old last 22Jan2021 administered on the upper righthand arm later clarified as upper right arm; and she was still going through that systemic reaction when she had her first COVID vaccine. The patient asked on regarding how effective the vaccine was related to receiving steroid therapy. Patient was advised by doctor to go to urgent care to have a covid test to see if she and husband were exposed to covid before the vaccines kicked in. Patient stated that on an unspecified date in 2021, she still didn't feel well and was running one heck of a temperature (increased). Patient reported she had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine. She filled out the forms. Patient felt like she should be put in the hospital. She has a horrific allergy to alcohol. Each time she receives an injection it gets worse. She knew when she received the second dose that the third ingredient was alcohol. She thought about was worse, the virus or the reaction. Within a minute of taking the vaccine she had a reaction. She reported it at the site and was watched for a half hour. Her question was "because she took prednisone immediately after getting the vaccine does that negate the shot?" She was not asked the name of the steroid that she took. She was taking prednisone 20mg, 2 tablets as soon as she gets a shot then 2 daily Monday-Friday. It was still going through her system and it was reeking havoc on her. If she goes to the hospital they will give her Benadryl and monitor her. Patient stated that on 08Feb2021, she had an allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine. Patient stated that she had both COVID shots and had adverse reactions and took some medicine for the adverse reaction and now the patient was concerned it might mess with the shot, it might not work for her as it should. She knew that this was going to be a long process and she knew her allergies were rare, but they were there. She is allergic to isopropyl alcohol, even if it is in shampoos or liquid soaps, she gets reactions. She had her first COVID vaccine and she had her own hospital cleanser that she has with her at all times and she used it which was not a problem. For her second COVID vaccine, the nurse was naming the 3 ingredients that were in the COVID vaccine and asked if she was allergic to any. She said this last shot had alcohol in it, she sat with her husband next to her, and thought which was worse: getting COVID, the cases in the city are high, or having a reaction to the alcohol. She chose the latter. When it went into her arm she immediately knew she was getting a reaction. She had steroids with her just in case this happened. Each time the reaction happens, it gets worse. She said she sat for half an hour and has been on steroids until last Friday. She was supposed to be on them for days. On Friday, she was wondering if taking the steroids negated the effectiveness of the COVID vaccine and that's why she called in. She knew that this was rare and it was not something that the company going to say that the company know how to fix it. Patient worked in the health unit of a university as a hiring and firing people person. So, she was around it, but she was not a doctor or a nurse. So, she guessed the answer was no. Last week she received her second COVID vaccine. She said, she has got to get rid of 5 pounds, but it's harder to do that when you're older. She experienced the reaction from the isopropyl alcohol within her second dose of the COVID vaccine last week, 08Feb2021. She said she was still going through it and will for a while. When asked for the outcome, she said she couldn't answer that honestly. She said she didn't feel good (2021). Period. She knew that when she goes through this it takes, each time, an extra 4 to 5 days to get over it. When she got up this morning, she didn't feel good. Her husband asked if she wanted to go sailing, and she said not in 30 degree weather, but for her to say no to sailing, her husband knew she didn't feel well. She couldn't say worse, but she can say she didn't know how long it was going to be, which was scaring her. By doing what she did, if that negated the COVID vaccine, then lets go from there. That's what she was afraid of. When she tells people she is allergic to alcohol, and when it happens, they look at her like "nobody is allergic to alcohol." She is 77 and has the aches and pains of a 77 year old, which she hates. But she doesn't think there are related medical conditions to what she experienced. This (allergy to alcohol) started when she was 19 and it has gotten progressively worse. So she tries to be careful. She says this was her, not dumb, but her decision that she made and now she is concerned. She said no to any tests done. She had the immediate reaction and she knew what to do. Patient further reported that she has allergy to alcohol and had an adverse reaction after the 2nd shot due to alcohol swab and on an unspecified date in 2021, she experienced redness and swelling in her right arm and feeling hot all over the body. Patient asked if her doctor will prescribe Benadryl to manage my allergy will it affect the effectiveness of the PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the event "allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine". The patient did not recover from the event "allergic response to isopropyl alcohol in second dose of COVID vaccine". The outcome of the other events reported was unknown.

A 77-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), second dose via an unspecified route of administration on 08Mar2021 15:30 (3:30 PM) (Batch/Lot number was not reported) as SINGLE DOSE for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included hashimottos (reported as hoshimottos) Diagnosed 35 years ago, hypermobile Diagnosed 20 years ago, and disorder nomia Diagnosed 25 years ago; all unknown if ongoing. Concomitant medication included levothyroxine sodium (SYNTHROID); diazepam (VALIUM); and levothyroxine (LEVOTHYROXINE); all taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. The patient previously took bnt162b2 on 15Feb2021 for covid-19 immunization first dose at the left arm and experienced immobile for a day, cannot walk, weakness and sore arm. The patient was to know if there is going to be a booster for the Pfizer covid vaccine. The patient stated she received the Pfizer covid vaccine both doses and she is calling to report the reaction she had with the first and second dose to help other patients, she said she was close to death after the second dose. In the middle of the night she was awaken due to excruciating pain in the body, like truck ran over her. The patient heard that someone had same reaction who was in the hospital, with similar symptoms to covid. She said she felt like if her internal organ were shutting down. She does not do well with the antibiotic, and does not go to the doctors. She could not walk or eat after the second dose. She said she has hashimoto dysautonomia hypermobility. she said she thinks she might have had anaphylactic reaction. The patient added that she has lived through it and her experience has been very unusual. The caller has underlying conditions that may have caused this event, she received the second dose on 08Mar2021, it was a horrible experience but since she is still alive she would want to report it. The caller does have strange reactions to chemicals and she typically goes to naturopaths and holistic doctors because of this. The caller also has multiple autoimmune disorders and feels like that may have played a part in this reaction. It was added that further added that she received her second dose 08Mar2021 at 3:30pm and had a little bit of a sore arm, she was thinking positive thoughts about all of this because she never gets vaccines. At 2:00am on 09Mar2021 the caller was awaken in excruciating pain, every surgery she has had or accident manifests in the greatest pain. The pain was excruciating the caller took over the counter pain medicine and diclofenac and it didn't help. The caller is unsure of what she took, she may be making this up. The caller felt like she was dying, she felt like her internal organs were shutting down, it happened all week. The caller was so weak her husband fed her and made sure she was drinking. The caller thinks she would die if she had to have a booster shot of this vaccine. The caller has never had anaphylactic shock, could this have been anaphylactic shock? All of the pain from a surgery all occurred at once and her entire body was wrecking, in horrible pain, that she does not think heroin could have taken care of. After the second vaccine she was literally so weak that she felt like all of her vital organs were shutting down and it lasted for 6 days, like she got hit by a truck, like had beat her up. The caller knows that there are new found reactions with (Company name) and they stopped thousands of doses because of it, she saw this in the news today. The patient wanted to make note that she has underlying autoimmune diseases, she is unsure if there is a correlation between this and her reaction. The caller was changing from her thyroid medicine and her thyroid went very high with the generic brand so she was swapped to Synthroid in the middle of this. The caller was on levothyroxine and it wasn't working, her thyroid was sky high (Unknown lot number and expiration date Feb2022). The caller was going through all of these changes as well when she received the vaccine. The caller's doctor took a test and the caller has antibodies and they are there but not very strong. The caller doesn't want to be spreading something because she is feeling healthy and fine today. The outcome of the events was unknown.

I feel I may be having a severe allergic reaction to the Pfizer vaccine (Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine) got on Thursday (29Apr2021) of this past week. I am very light headed, dizzy and felt like I am going to faint, has ringing in the ears, and all that has been going on about a week, since last Thursday (29Apr2021). Then I was really ill last night (01May2021). It started last night when we went to bed around 11 O'clock. I have never had anything like this in my life. My blood pressure was through the roof. With a blood pressure cuff and a stethoscope, her blood pressure went up over 220 which was so high that had never happened before, so I took an extra pill (atenolol 25 mg tablet) last night (01May2021) which helped a little bit but not enough, and I really thought that I was going to pass out and be really sick. Because I thought that it was either having a stroke or a heart attack, my husband had to call ambulance to take me to the hospital last night. The systolic and diastolic and pulse rate went way up. They did chest x-ray, blood work, and urinalysis, and everything came back fine and they could not find anything. They just felt that I was just having a major reaction to the shot so they sent me home. I just got home this morning (02May2021) from having to go to the emergency room. But as soon as we got home, I started with a humongous headache and so I had Excedrin/Tylenol for headaches because I used to get sinus headaches. So, I took that, and it helped a little bit, my headache got a little better. Anyhow, I am much better right now and I am sleeping. But tomorrow it will be the same." Later the patient also reported, "Today (06May2021) I am feeling a little weird with ringing of ears and is light headed sometimes. Because of the light headedness, I feels a little nauseous. But I am a still very nauseous. I feel like I am going to faint again and my blood pressure I think has gone back up. I am trying to keep calm and trying to figure out what is going on. But I am really afraid if I am having a reaction to the vaccine unfortunately. I am dizzy and I do not want to start getting worst again. I guess I will feel better if you tell me that this happens sometimes and what can I do to decrease somehow?" She also stated that she did contact her doctor about this event but she didn't get very far. Her memory is a little off right now because she really has not felt well. She stated that her biggest thing is her blood pressure.

She felt a weighty fatigue. Was put on Keppra for seizures. Had consults with neurology, a neurosurgeon, a neuro-oncologist--all unsure of what exactly these brain lesions were. Back left lower part of brain: a small lesion, which was basically ignored Right side, towards front, part of brain, on top of and/or intertwined with motor strip: not sure what this is, a stroke or tumor (the neurosurgeon and neurologist had differing opinions) 2/22--1st MRI--shows 2 spots between these 2 MRIs the bloodwork, CT scan, and ultrasound are done--results normal 3/23--2nd MRI--larger lesion is bigger. Was not thought to be a cancerous tumor 4/23--3rd MRI--Looks like larger lesion is improving. A scheduled brain biopsy is postponed 5/20--4th MRI--the small spot is almost gone and the larger spot is much smaller, about 1/8th the size of the February MRI. According to the neuro-oncologist, this was an atypical stroke.

The doctor said, "I can't tell if it's a bug bite because it's so inflamed." Patient's asthma has been worse. It's horrible to have this. Thinking patient had bed bugs, it's been driving her crazy for a month. Patient informed that it's not just some itchiness, at first sight she thought she had insect bites. It happened in two locations under the right side of my neck which is like a big red blotch that was very itchy at the same time on my right arm and so the second time it happen it was not that bad, just in these isolated spots on right and left elbow and one side of face and neck, so it was isolated, it was not a rash, it was like an allergic reaction to mosquito bite but so itchy and red and inflamed. The doctor gave the patient antihistamine and now taking prednisone. Patient also asked about tests available to see if she had an allergic reaction to the pfizer vaccine. If the vaccine had histamine or would people who had allergies to bug bites have allergies to the Pfizer vaccine. The outcome of events hive like hard bumps around elbow of same arm, as well as hive like bump near ear of right side and very very itchy was recovering and rest all events was unknown.

Day 5 of Moderate to severe bilateral hand and wrist pain following Pfizer 1st COVID-19 injection 0n 02/21/21. Unable to prepare meals, wash dishes, do laundry or other daily chores. My son is typing this message for me. At this time I do not plan to get the second injection. Am sending this message to the CDC and Pfizer. Two 650MG Tylenol gives me little relief. I'm hopeful that someone might suggest something else.

felt fairly decent/feel bad; she "came down with covid"/test positive for COVID; she is kind of weak; her heart was racing; aching/aches; she ran a fever that got up to 101; cough; her arm got sore; allergies; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 78-years-old female patient receive first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) (lot number: EL1283) on 15Jan2021 at single dose in left arm for COVID Prevention. Medical history included ongoing High Blood Pressure, she was diagnosed approximately 5 years prior to starting blood pressure medications in 1998. Concomitant medication included hydrochlorothiazide, valsartan (VALSARTAN AND HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE) at 320mg/12.5mg, once daily, by mouth from 1998 and ongoing, amlodipine besylate at 5mg, once daily, by mouth at night from 1998, both for High blood pressure. The patient stated that she did not realize, but she must have been exposed to the COVID Virus, prior to getting her shot. She stated that on 15Jan2021, she went and got her Pfizer COVID shot, and that same day, by the time she got home, she was starting to feel bad and it went downhill from there. She mentioned that on the same day on 15Jan2021, she "came down with covid". She finally went in on 22Jan2021, and got tested, and she did test positive for COVID. The patient was tested Positive for COVID-19 on 22Jan2021. She did believe she was getting better. On 29Jan2021, she felt fairly decent, and today, she is kind of weak but she is assuming that will happen. She was scheduled to go back for her second dose on 08Feb2021, and she is wondering if there are recommendations about the second dose, for people who tested positive for COVID after having gotten the first dose. When queried for her PCP contact information, she stated that her head is not working really great and she feels stupid she did not have this information handy to provide. She states that the first week with her symptoms, she just figured she did have the virus. She had a cough but it never got down to where she had trouble breathing, and she just figured that her body had to go through, whatever it was going to go through, and as long as the patient felt like she was okay, there was not anything anyone could do, she just had to play it out. When she did finally go get tested, the doctor told her to get on Nyquil and Ibuprofen, so that is what the patient has been taking, and she feels like it has helped a lot. Before she saw the doctor, she was taking Acetaminophen, but the doctor told her to do the Nyquil and Ibuprofen, so that is what she has been doing. By the time she got home from getting her vaccine, her heart was racing. She took her blood pressure and it was okay at 125/73, and her heart rate was 72. She has high blood pressure and she takes two medications for that, so she took her night time blood pressure pill and the fast beating of her heart went away. The next day, she got to aching. She has had all different aches, and she ran a fever that got up to 101, and the rest of the time it was 100 or 99, but the fevers were not all day long, they would just come and go. Now she has had no fever in four or more days, and she is doing better. She does still have the cough, but she also has allergies so she does not know what is causing the cough. As far as the reaction to the vaccine, just her arm got sore. But she thinks she was exposed prior to getting the vaccine and just did not know it. she stated that the people took her temperature the day of the shot and she didn't have a temperature. She did not receive any other vaccines on the same day as the COVID vaccine. The outcome of fever was recovering, of cough and allergies was not recovered, of her heart was racing was recovered.

I was vaccinated with Pfizer for the first time 11 days ago. Within a few minutes of being vaccinated, I felt nauseated but I did NOT throw up. I have been sick ever since with one thing and another. For the first several days after being vaccinated, I had a sore arm, which I expected. I have also experienced extreme fatigue, chills, nausea, muscle and joint aches, a sore throat (briefly), an occasional headache, tenderness in my left armpit and along the left side of my rib cage, stomach pain and diarrhea and at times, a low-grade fever and sweating. My memory and ability to focus on my work have been affected. Yesterday (March 13), I felt OK all day and thought I was better at last, but after I ate dinner, I vomited and had diarrhea. I told my primary care physician about all of this in an email and she replied that my symptoms were "normal." I'm not so sure. I haven't read of anyone else feeling so sick for so long after the first dose of Pfizer.

I had an unsettling waking event happen to me yesterday morning, so I didn?t feel like I could gather myself to be at an appointment after the event. I was very disoriented upon waking. I could not gather my thoughts and memories. Things like: I knew I was in a city , but didn?t know where the city was in the world; and other things like that. It was as though I had stepped out of my life and didn?t remember enough to step back in. It only lasted maybe 5 min, but was completly disconcerting & disarming. I?ve never had a similar event. And it came after another disarming 10 min bout of dizziness / sense of off-balancedness and a very slight nausea the night before. It too, was arresting because I had had no alcohol to drink for months. I felt continually better during the early morning and didn?t think about it much during the rest of the day.

A 78-years-old female patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, lot number: ER8731), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm on 15Apr2021 13:15 (at the age of 78-years-old) as a SINGLE DOSE for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history and concomitant medications were not reported. She had her shot and just had a bad reaction to her very first shot. She came home, states sometimes she may doze off for 15 minutes or so but she fell asleep until at 16:00 she was woken up by a call from a friend. On 15Apr2021, she felt very fatigued and weak on Friday; later adds she was tired the day of shot as well. She laid around all day sleeping on Friday.

Adds she thought she should go and sit up in the living room. But even after she sat down, sitting straight up, she kept seeing black spots. A friend took her to the emergency room (ER) for the dizziness and seeing spots. At the ER they found her blood pressure was really high; she thinks it was 220 over something, she forgot the bottom figure. They put an IV in to give her medication; did an electrocardiogram; a chest xray; blood work; a urinalysis and all of those tests everything was fine. The ER staff helped her to bathroom and her head was still swimming but they said that was because her blood pressure was still high. Adds her blood pressure went down on it's own and she had no medication for the blood pressure. They told her you are remarkable at your age to not to be on medication. She saw her doctor yesterday. Reports at the doctor's office her blood pressure was about 128/63. The doctor told her it was kind a low and that she basically runs low. She was not dizzy anymore on Sunday after her blood pressure went down. Adds she got a dull headache yesterday but she thinks it might of been a caffeine headache because she has had a caffeine headache in the past when she had to stop caffeine for a test or something. She has to take the second dose on 06May2021, and her doctor told her to take it; but she is scared to death. She asking for a recommendation as to whether she should get the second dose.

A female patient of an unspecified age received BNT162b2 (CONMINTARY, Solution for injection, Lot No: EN6200), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in the left arm on 28-JAN-2021 16:00 as 1stdose, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient received second dose BNT162b2 (CONMINTARY, Solution for injection, Lot No: EL9261), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in the left arm on 05-MAR-2021 16:00 as 2nd dose, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history included ongoing cardiac disorder heart condition , ongoing hypertension high blood pressure , cardiac operation from 25Jan2020 to 25Jan2020 heart surgery , knee arthroplasty from Jan2014 to an unknown date double knee replacement surgery made out of unknown titanium and plastic , office visit from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing foot doctor appointment , biopsy uterus from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing scheduled for a biopsy on her uterus , breast cancer from Sep2020 to an unknown date breast cancer , arthritis from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing arthritis , immunisation from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing very active , genetic counselling from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing genetic testing relative for breast cancer, heart surgery for other conditions was 2 heart stents placed, double knee replacement surgery was the prosthetics are each 9 inches made out of unknown titanium and plastic. Caller interchangeably referred to surgical date as Jan2014 and about 5 years ago. She was fine without any assistance for about 4 years never needed to use canes or walkers only at 1st when had replacements-did for that immediate after surgery-was down 4 months with replacements. Foot doctor appointment was she will tackle soon. Scheduled for a biopsy on her uterus was she is concentrating on that once she gets past that they picked that up in annual pelvic exam about a month ago; if that doesn't have any lasting need for any further treatment she will tackle this knee pain, breast cancer was 1st stage taken care of no further mammograms not on any medication for it; operated on Sep2020 until now another part of her needs to be looked at no reason it won't be nothing just questionable if something might be brewing; just going to do a biopsy of uterus because of ultrasound need to be looked at again. Arthritis was definitely what caused the knee surgeries. Very active gone on to have a full life radio program curates the art in her town. Does her own grocery shopping. Lives alone since husband died. Patient tested her for genetics relative to breast cancer she is not passing anything on to her daughter of the female breast genes don't think it goes any further. Patient does not take a lot in the past she had very serious lyme disease; no real relapse in that last 10 years; before that she spent 10 years in treatment for lyme disease so she could go back to that. History of all previous immunization with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect (or patient age at first and subsequent immunizations if dates of birth or immunizations are not available) was none. Concomitant medication(s) included celecoxib (CELEBREX) taken for pain, start and stop date were not reported; thyroid (ARMOUR THYROID) taken for thyroid disorder from 2001 to an unspecified stop date. The patient experienced pain in her pelvis on 31Jan2021, same pain feeling in bladder and pelvis on an unspecified date, sore arm on an unspecified date, had pain that was just in the knee replacements, where knee replacements on unspecified date, pain on 31Jan2021, standing up feels weird on 28Jan2021.This is report 1 of 8. The patient who reported pain standing up feels weird and sore arm after first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. Pain on the 3rd day after the first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine she woke with pain in her pelvis and thought she had a urinary tract-captured as provided as only urinary tract- which she doesn't usually have. Then on the 4th day after first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine she had the same pain feeling in bladder and pelvis. She was seeing a cancer doctor that day for a 6-month check-up who ran a urine sample, and it was negative. She knew it was negative because that symptom was pretty intense on 3rd and 4th day but then it was gone. The pain took her all the way back to when she had the knee replacement surgeries; she was on Morphine then which she can't do that now; they wouldn't give it to her. She had using Advil and some Celebrex which she was not supposed to use those because of her heart condition which was under control. Advil and Celebrex taken for the pain have done nothing for the pain they are doing nothing they don't touch the pain. Her family doctor suggested she try marijuana. her cancer doctor was trying to get her medical marijuana; but nothing's happened in 6-8 weeks. Pain was making her crazy, did buy the marijuana it comes like candy like little gummy bears to try to alleviate the pain that way but did not get the medical marijuana. The oncologist talked to his secretary and she was told they would contact her in 6 weeks. 6 weeks went by and they haven't contacted her. The Oncologist texted her she told him she hasn't gotten the medical marijuana card yet and you have to pay for the card. So her daughter in Massachusetts can buy marijuana that's legal there-so the patient tried little bit of a gummy bear which did nothing for the pain; so she tried a little more of a gummy bear which still did nothing for the pain; then another day she tried a whole gummy bear which still did nothing for the pain in her knees but she felt kind of fogged up in the head, after 6 days after the first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine she woke up with both knees that she had a knee replacement in in 2014; and she had basically gotten over most of it; the 6th day after the shot she woke up and had pain that was just in the knee replacements where knee replacements both were. It was excruciating pain it woke her up and she has been pretty bad ever since. That was the most extreme day of pain was 6 days after the first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. It was pretty bad and then it woke her up 10May2021 also. For the pain Advil doesn't touch it she has taken 600mg of Advil every day which she was not allowed to take because she had 2 stents in her heart during heart surgery performed in 2020. They don't really want you to take Advil or anything after that. She's pretty much suffering and was probably going to end up in pain management. She got the second dose of Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine and that second dose didn't make any difference did not worsen or affect events. She has to use a walker now; she had really gotten pretty much through that major surgery 5 years ago the double knee replacement surgery which she verified as being in 2014. She never got really great, but she could walk without a cane or any assistance. 09May2021 she when went to the cemetery to spread her deceased husband's ashes and had to use 2 canes so the pain definitely came from the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. The patient reporting adverse events with Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. Mentioned she has been using Advil and some Celebrex taken for pain which have done nothing for the pain they are doing nothing they don't touch the pain. Advil expiry: Jul2023 Lot: WJ22828 UPC/NDC was Unknown on top over the code they use when they do inventory or all. Patient has friends with hip replacements and knee replacements, and no one was saying anything about pain with their replacements. She was thinking the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine was just attacking the foreign particles in her body which are the knee replacements. Celebrex: Lot/NDC/Expiry: Unknown dispensed in pharmacy vial. The outcome of the event pain in her pelvis was recovering, same pain feeling in bladder and pelvis, sore arm, had pain that was just in the knee replacements, where knee replacements was unknown, pain was recovering, standing up feels weird was recovered on unspecified date.

A 78-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 11Feb2021 at age of 78-year-old (Batch/Lot Number: EL3249) at single dose for COVID-19 immunisation; zinc (manufacturer: Nature Bounty), via an unspecified route of administration from an unspecified date (Batch/Lot Number: 529254-01; Expiration Date: Nov2024), at 50 mg daily for immunity. Medical history included COVID-19 in Sep2020 and her primary symptoms were different than the typical symptoms, she had the fog, lightheadedness, and dizziness, she healed up pretty good, but she would occasionally have a bout with it. Concomitant medication included colecalciferol (D3, Brand: Nature Bounty, lot number: 506697-01, expiry: Sep2023) taken for immunity. Additional vaccines administered on same date of the Pfizer Suspect were none. History of all previous immunization with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect was none. Prior vaccinations within 4 weeks were none. Back in probably 1958 she had a reaction to the Polio vaccine for immunization. She didn't remember the symptoms and they said to stay away from it. She had shingles vaccine for immunization and had no problem. The patient did not have lot number or expiry for the Polio Vaccine. She didn't have lot and expiry for the Shingles vaccine. She got the Shingles vaccine in 2019 because she had a friend that had shingles and it wouldn't go away. Her friend had not gotten the shingles vaccine. The patient's friend recommended that patient get the shingles vaccine. She had the opportunity to get the first vaccine on 11Feb2021 and she asked her doctor if she should do it with her having continued symptoms. The doctor said yes and for her to take Zinc and D3. So that is what she did. Every day since she got the vaccine she had fog, lightheadedness, and dizziness in Feb2021 worse than when she had COVID. She was fine the first 24 to 30 hours. When she woke up the next day in Feb2021 she was dizzy again. Then it has gone off and on. She can't even go grocery shopping without holding onto the cart an begin fearful. When she sat she was fine. She imagined she had fatigue. She had never had so many naps. The patient clarified that she lay down because of dizziness. The patient asked how does that relate to her getting the second one. That was the first one and they said the second one is worse. She is a caregiver and it can't get worse. They said the first shot is 85% effective is that enough and asked if that last for very long. She used to be 5 foot 2 inches. She saw her doctor on 25Feb2021 and doctor thought she should still have the vaccine. she was still leery. The 26Feb2021 is a better day, but she had felt real promise before. She took supplements. She thought she read that you shouldn't take anything for immunity. The patient asked if the zinc and D3 is considered for immunity because that is what the doctor told her to take it for. She had to cut the zinc in half because it made her terribly sick in 2021. It was 50mg, but since she was cutting it in half she is taking 25mg per day. She did not have any test or bloodwork since the vaccine. She wished the doctor would have done something when she messaged doctor on 25Feb2021 on app. She would feel better if someone else said she should get it. The events did not required a visit to emergency room. The action taken in response to the events for zinc was dose reduced. The outcome of the events was unknown. No follow up attempts are possible. No further information is expected.

I am taking a blood thinner. I was taking the other one, but they told me to look the other one (BYSTOLIC). It (BYSTOLIC) is a new drug I would say."). The patient previously received the first dose of the bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE) for COVID-19 immunization on an unknown date and experienced adverse event ("no problem, nothing happened, there were minor things here and there").

The patient did not receive treatment due to the events; "No, I just ignored it." The clinical course was reported as follows: The patient stated, "I took the virus vaccination shot (clarified as COVID 19 vaccine). The first one, there was no problem, nothing happened, there were minor things here and there. The second one I took was just this past Sunday. Something weird happened not right away, not the first day but probably it was second day, second or the third day, I am pretty sure I am not sure exactly, I think. I was not keeping track of all of that." The patient began to hallucinate; and when she got out of her bed, she suddenly had a feeling that she should look back. The patient stated that she looked back and there was her deceased sister (who died 37 years ago; according to the patient) and her daughter who was still alive; both were looking at her. The patient further reported the following: "They remained in my bed beside me. Okay, I ignored it and thought it was kind of funny because I know that my daughter is in (place name) and my sister is deceased. So, I am having a bed nightmare or something, so I ignored it. Then next thing it happened for a few days and then the dog that we just had euthanized, my daughter (name) had cancer and it was euthanized and what happened is, I was sitting on my sofa and I have seen the dog come out of my bedroom going to the bathroom but only the back of her and she disappeared. Then I spent the night at my other daughter's house and somewhere in the middle of the night I was awake in my something and I woke up and I looked over into my sistert's dining room and there was my brother standing there looking at me and there was two of his children sitting at the table also. I thought this is getting a little weird." The patient reported that nothing like this happened before. The patient wanted to understand the event because she "never had been dizzy from my drug, taking the drug (unspecified medication) that made me dizzy but that not the same thing what is going on here." The clinical outcome of the events was unknown. The batch/lot numbers for the vaccine, bnt162b2, were not provided and will be requested during follow up.

Depressed/depression; It has caused diarrhea that has persisted for 8 weeks; Soreness/her shoulder was sore; This is spontaneous report received from a contactable consumer (patient sister, Caregiver). This is report 1 of 2. This report is in regard to the reporter's sister. A 79-year-old female patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot Number: Unknown, NDC number: Unknown, Expiry Date: Unknown), via unspecified route of administration on an unspecified date (about two months ago) as 2nd dose single for covid-19 immunization. The patient had History with Oral lichen planus From an Unspecified date and unknown if ongoing). Concomitant medications were not reported. Patient did not have any other product. Reporter stated that, she doesn't know the specific day of vaccination. It has caused diarrhea to the patient that has persisted for 8 weeks. GI doc gave Lomotil, and it helped a little bit. She has had to change her diet and cut out vegetables because it made the diarrhea worse. Patient was very depressed. Patient wanted to know if It was reported earlier and why would it cause the ongoing diarrhea. Patient had seen that that it causes sometimes severe diarrhea, but it didn't say how long it will last. Patient was concerning about if someone need to take an immunosuppressive medication to stop the diarrhea. She was afraid her doctor is going to tell her she needs to take an immunosuppressant medication. It also had stated like, if the Pfizer aware that people have to take medications that shut down the immune system. Upon follow up on 27May2021, reporter stated that, patient was very depressed (on unspecified date) about it. She had a tendency of having autoimmune problems, that she had oral lichen planus, sometimes called burning mouth syndrome. Her doctor diagnosed her with oral lichen planus, which is an autoimmune reaction to bell peppers, she was eating a lot of bell peppers. patient has a hyper immune system. She did not take any type of autoimmune medications no Humira or immunosuppressive medications. Patient took the COVID-19 vaccine 8 weeks ago and patient developed the diarrhea by the 4th day after the vaccine. Patient had never had diarrhea her entire life. Patient went into shock. Her sister's diarrhea was still ongoing. The gastro doctor gave her sister Lomotil and the Lomotil was working to a point, it prevents the worst of the diarrhea. Her stool was coming out very loose. Reporter did not have the NDC number, lot number and expiry date for the Lomotil, stating it was a prescription, chemical name called atropine or something (as reporter). Patient changed her diet and was becoming depressed. Normally, her sister is a person very concerned for her health and she would have a plant-based diet with multiple vegetables, and now her sister can't do that. patient felt her life depends on having a healthy diet. Patient had vaccinated at pharmacy or something, reporter was concerned that, patient got a good vaccination that was not corrupt in any way. Reporter was urging patient to get the vaccine because she travels and goes to a different country and this and that. So, she could be able to travel. patient has a hyperactive immune system, it appears so anyway. Reporter was using her own words when she uses the term hyperactive immune system, so this may not be medically accurate. Her sister has oral lichen planus which is a bad problem. patient was eating a lot of bell peppers. Bell peppers produce an immune reaction, because they contain a chemical called solanine. patient was eating a lot of bell peppers because the internet said they were healthy and contained a lot of vitamin A. she got an immune reaction to the bell peppers, and the immune reaction produced sores under her sister's tongue, very painful sores. Patient had side effects happen three or four days later after the vaccine- it started as diarrhea and she thought it would stop. Patient's shoulder was sore. reporter mentioned she doesn't know when patient's soreness began and ended. The soreness did completely go away for patient. No Additional Vaccines Administered on Same Date of the Pfizer Suspect. Event Did not require any visit to emergency Room or Physician Office. Prior Vaccinations within 4 weeks of the suspect vaccine and events following prior vaccinations were none. Patient's Family Medical History was related to the autoimmune stuff, clarified as the oral lichen planus. Patient had oral lichen planus and was previously treated with steroids. The oral lichen planus started with sores under her sister's tongue. Her sister was treated twice with steroids. Patient said the steroids were successful. Patient's sores were treated with a steroid once and then the sore returned so she went back to the same doctor, and the doctor treated her again with steroids. The second time, the sores went away. At that point, this condition was called burning mouth syndrome, which is on the internet, it was a known condition that is very painful. The doctor diagnosed it as burning mouth syndrome. The diarrhea her sister is experiencing was causing a psychological effect. Reporter stated that, there was no warnings of if a person who has an overactive immune system shouldn't take the COVID vaccine, there was no kind of warning. Reporter seriousness for all the events were Unspecified. Outcome of all the events were unknown. Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.

The historical vaccine included shingles vaccine. The patient experienced blood pressure/ up to 210/110 mmHg on 20Feb2021 felt chills/chills on 31Jan2021, felt yucky on 31Jan2021, not walking well on 20Feb2021 , felt sick/sick as a dog on 20Feb2021, feeling nauseous on 20Feb2021, threw up like crazy on 20Feb2021, funny feeling around her head/feeling really funny on 20Feb2021, face usually gets red when her blood pressure is high and it she is not red at this time on 20Feb2021, vertigo on 20Feb2021, felt the really funny feeling going up her throat on an unspecified date in 2021, her heart rate has been wanting to be a little higher than usual on an unspecified date in 2021 and her balance was not quite right on an unspecified date in 2021. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included blood pressure measurement: 220/110 mmHg (normal value: 120/80) on 20Feb2021, computerised tomogram: doctor mentioned 3 little places on 20Feb2021, electrocardiogram: unknown results on 20Feb2021, heart rate: little higher than usual on an unspecified date in 2021, laboratory test: unknown results on 20Feb2021. Patient received both dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine on 11Jan2021 and 30Jan2021. On the next day after the 2nd dose, she felt chills. On 20Feb2021, she started not walking well, thought she would fall. All of a sudden, she felt sick and threw up like crazy while she was visiting her daughter for the day. The firefighters came to take her blood pressure and it was up to 210/110 mmHg. They advised her to go to the ER. After several hours, she was given blood pressure and nausea pills. They mentioned vertigo. She says it got okay. However, 2 weeks ago, she started to have a funny feeling around her head. Not dizzy but her face usually gets red when her blood pressure high and she was not red at that time. It was again reported that the day after she was administered the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine she had chills and felt yucky that day. She also reported feeling really funny since 20Feb2021. She was asked for further information on events related to Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. She was at her daughter and noticed her balance was not quite right. She started feeling really funny so just lay down there for a little bit. When she did get up after about 15 minutes she started feeling nauseous. She got to the bathroom really fast and threw up like crazy. She did not have her blood pressure cuff with her so her daughter called the fire department and took her down there real fast. At the fire station they took her blood pressure which was 210/110 mmHg, so they suggested she head to the emergency room so she did. She was under observation in the emergency room, but not admitted to the hospital. The doctor mentioned vertigo somewhere along the way before she left the emergency room. She just kind of brushed the vertigo off until she was reading about that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine can cause vertigo. She guesses vertigo was what caused these events because she had been sick as a dog. When they got her on the bed and rolled her back she felt like she was going 90 miles per hour and by the time they got her back on the bed she was throwing up again-but this time and the initial onset of throwing up was the only times she threw up. They gave her something after probably 5-6 hours, blood pressure medicine and nausea medicine and she got ok and left there. Her heart rate has been wanting to be a little higher than usual. About 2 weeks ago she was just sitting on the couch and noticed especially when she would turn her head she still feels really funny; not dizzy, dizzy; she was walking ok; but the really funny feeling keeps hitting her continuously. During call when she sat back down she felt the really funny feeling going up her throat. It was just the weirdest thing, she wishes she had a word to really explain what the really funny feeling was but she does not. She has not checked her blood pressure for a while because she has been holding for a while for this department, so her blood pressure could be up a little bit, but she stated event was worse right now than it has been. Regarding testing/investigations while in the emergency room they did a CT head scan, lab tests, and an EKG. CT head scan results, the doctor mentioned 3 little places but when she talked to her doctor he said that was really just nothing to worry about with age; he said they will check it in 6 months and make sure areas are not growing. Caller has no further information to provide regarding lab tests or EKG results, they did not mention anything. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of blood pressure/ up to 210/110 mmHg and feeling nauseous.

On 06Mar2021, seven hours after receiving first dose of vaccination, in the evening patient noticed that her mouth started to burn, accidentally pinched her arm and the pain was more than expected and it left a bruise. On 12Mar2021, patient experienced sinus issues. On 20Mar2021, patient experienced that her legs were heavy and felt like they were weighted, which made it difficult for her to walk. On 22Mar2021, patient experienced burning pain on her lower lips, specifically in the space between the lip and the teeth. There was also burning pain in the face, in the arm and her neck-chest area, which caused great mental distress, a huge emotional toll, specifically being upset and devastated, lack of sleep, and weight lost due to lost of appetite with 5 pounds being lost within 2 weeks of these side effects. On an unspecified date in 2021, patient experienced hypersensitivity reaction. Patient stated that when she was changing her outfit she accidentally pinched her arm and the pain was more than expected and it left a bruise. About 7 hours after, she noticed that her mouth started to burn. She mentioned that she also had pineapple that day and was not sure if it was caused by the vaccine. On the 09Mar2021, she consulted a nurse practitioner who said that the burning may have been caused by the Pineapple. On 10Mar2021, she consulted her allergologist and got tested for a pineapple allergy. The results came in on 15Mar2021 and they came back negative for the allergy, but her allergologist mentioned that pineapple can still irritate the mouth. On 18Mar2021, she consulted with her Primary in which she was given magic mouthwash that made it worse. She was made to continue her benadryl and aspirin spray. On 20Mar2021, that Saturday night, as she was walking, she felt that her legs were heavy and felt like they were weighted, which made it difficult for her to walk. It lasted for about 20-30 minutes before subsiding. Last Monday, 22Mar2021 she really started to notice the burning pain on her lower lips, specifically in the space between the lip and the teeth. There was also burning pain in the face, in the arm and her neck-chest area. She described it as not constant but comes and goes. On 25Mar2021, she consulted with her primary again in which she was recommended not to get the 2nd dose of the vaccine and her side effects lean to a more neurologic cause. The doctor mentioned that the vaccine was still too new. These side effects has caused great mental distress, a huge emotional toll, specifically being upset and devastated, lack of sleep, and weight lost due to lost of appetite with 5 pounds being lost within 2 weeks of these side effects. She said that has not been fun. it has been horrible, and she would choose dying over this burning sensation in the mouth. Patient visited physician Office, 3 times and allergist did it virtually. Reportedly, after eating dinner she was eating pineapple from a can. She had the can and tried it. She had not had pineapple in a long time. While sitting in her recliner, she experienced her mouth burning. She added that began about an hour and a half after eating the pineapple and it has lasted for approximately 2 weeks. It was not constant all the time. She did not know at the time if the burning in the mouth was related to the pineapple. Caller added they thought it was the pineapple causing this. Last Sunday, the caller indicated that it was leaving and going away. Caller saw her new primary medical doctor on 09Mar2021. The Nurse Practitioner said it was probably the pineapple, She started her on Benadryl. Manufacturer was unknown to caller. Caller took 2 tablets on 09Mar2021 and stopped taking it on 10Mar2021. She restarted taking the Benadryl on about 14Mar2021. Caller stated she was primarily calling and asking because on Monday, 22Mar2021 she started having burning in her face and had burning in her arm. Caller reported the burning in her arm was not from the vaccine and she thought it was caused by her blood pressure cuff. Caller took her own blood pressure. Burning was better today, she still had burning in her arm. She took Zyrtec as instructed by her physician twice a day. She took a half tablet on 10Mar2021 through 13Mar2021. She was taking half a tablet in the morning and a half tablet at bedtime. Caller added that the Zyrtec made her feel unsteady and it made her sleepy. She did not tolerate it. Dose was 10mg. She has recovered completely from unsteady and being sleepy with Zyrtec. Caller took Tylenol because she was having sinus issues. She did not have the manufacturer, she took it on 12 and 20, two times. Its 325mg, by mouth, the regular strength. Caller saw an allergist on 10Mar2021 who tested her for pineapple allergy. The Allergist called on 15Mar2021 and reported she was not allergic to pineapple. Allergy was also tested for egg white, milk, wheat, corn, peanut, soybean, potato, yeast, and tomato. All resulted as negative. Benadryl: took 2 times in 09Mar2021. Caller restarted Benadryl and took it on 14Mar2021-17Mar2021. These days she only took it in the evening. She took 25 mg at night. Then she took Flonase, twice, on the 17th and 18th. Its over the counter. Lot number: TE8G, caller doesnt have box to provide UPC, stated there was another number of 0140592, expiry Mar2021. Dose was 27.5mcg per spray, spray into each nostril. When providing strength, states writing was so small for her to see. Gets a magnifying glass to confirm strength, states it's with her age. The doctor also suggested for the caller to try Afrin spray on 18Mar2021. Caller started it on 20Mar2021 and used it only once. She didnt like it. Caller said at her age she occasionally breaks out and uses Clindamycin for that. Dermatologist has her using Clindamycin 1 per cent pledgets. Applied twice to face once daily, She stopped 20Mar2021. Given Magic Mouthwash, which was in a pharmacy bottle, she took it once on 18Mar2021, but stopped. It was 5-10ml swish and spit. It made things worse and did not improve it. The doctor forgot to give her a measuring cup, and caller thought she told her a teaspoon. Caller added she tried using a warm cloth on her sinus area and her skin felt like a sunburn. The cloth left a red area around her cheek. Then this Sunday, after using the pledgets, went for a walk, next day noticed her face was really burned, not just face, her neck, arms, but she was not exposed, but had a burning pain, and she still continued to have it. She asked the dermatologist if this could be caused from the Clindamycin. The dermatologist told her no. She took a walk on Saturday and did not know if she was dehydrated. She felt like there were weights on her feet as she walked. It lasted 30 minutes. The burning in mouth started 7 hours after the first dose and it had improved. Therapeutic measures taken in response to the events included Benadryl, Zyrtec, Tylenol, Flonase, Afrin spray, clindamycin, magic mouthwash. Outcome of the events "mouth started to burn/burning in mouth" and "sinus issues" were ongoing-not recovered and for all other events were unknown at the time of report.

Amyloidosis; felt a sweep over her stomach up her body and up to her head; Eyes swollen; hands hurt; sharp pings up and down legs; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). An 80-year-old female patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EK9231), via an unspecified route of administration on the left arm on 16Jan2021 13:45 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included ongoing diabetic and previously took the flu shot one time and started having right arm pain across her chest over to the left side right after getting it. So she don't take it anymore and takes a bunch of herbs. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient reported that she has a disease, amyloidosis on an unspecified date, where there is a build up of protein in the body. She didn't know that there is protein in the shot and doesn't know the affects it has with her condition. She found out the day after getting the first Pfizer C-19 (clarified as COVID-19) shot that there was protein in it. The patient wanted to know the affects it has with her condition and if it will affect her getting the second dose and if it covers the new virus and booster shot. The patient got the vaccine on 16Jan2021 and found out about the protein in it the next day when it came across her phone. The patient received it at a school, where they vaccinated 1,169 residents.

The night after receiving dose 1 of the vaccine, she didn't want to eat dinner, was starting to spit up saliva, and noted a new headache, and asked her daughter to sleep with her that night considering she was feeling poorly. She was restless all night, and then at ~5am her L arm began to twitch; she was still alert at this time but didn't realize her arm was moving. Shortly after this she lost consciousness, her eyes rolled back in her head, and she developed a frank GTC seizure. Her daughter called an ambulance, and by the time she was on the way to the hospital, she was awake and alert again. At the hospital, she was initially talking and able to answer most questions appropriately. She was noted to be afebrile, hemodynamically stable, without an O2 requirement, though with tachycardia to the 110s. She was found to have a leukocytosis to ~16, thrombocytosis to ~550, and LDH elevated in the 600s. Over the following day, her mental status declined and she became agitated and disoriented to place/time. CT chest revealed b/l multifocal pneumonia, for which she was started on pip-tazo. She underwent MRI brain (DWI sequence only) which did not reveal any obvious CVA. LP was performed on 1/29 at ~10PM; as far as we can tell, she had only received pip-tazo for antibiotics at this point. CSF studies revealed 220 WBCs (14% PMNs, 76% lymphs, 10% monos), 14 RBCs, Glu 59, Prot 145; GS 2+ WBCs, no orgs; india ink stain negative; Cx pending at time of transfer. Given concern for bacterial or viral meningoencephalitis she was transitioned to vancomycin/ceftriaxone/acyclovir. Patient was then transferred to another Hospital for further management. Micro was all negative or pending at the time of transfer. Shortly after admission to hospital she was intubated. Spine MRI was notable for longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis. All infectious workup has been negative with just two more pending studies for tuberculosis; autoantibody panel pending. She is now able to follow commands with eyes and mouth, but has not been able to move her arms or legs. We do not have high suspicion that this syndrome is related to the vaccine, given that progressive neurological symptoms started the week before vaccine, but thought it prudent to report given the time course.

Had shallow breathing; Very weak; Could not walk; Disoriented; Wanted to sleep; Incoherent; couldn't/wouldn't eat; Dehydrated; This is a spontaneous report from two contactable consumers (primary reporter was patient's husband). An 80-year-old female patient received her first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number and expiry date were not reported), via an unspecified route of administration on an unspecified date at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks with pneumonia and COVID-19 at the end of last Summer. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient's husband reported that the patient received the first Covid shot about a week to two weeks ago. She went to the facility and got the shot and was fine afterwards until she came home. Later that afternoon, she started showing symptoms of problems, was weak and couldn't walk, disoriented, wanted to sleep, was incoherent, couldn't/wouldn't eat, was very, very much having trouble, shallow breathing. He tried to stay right her and eventually it got to be scary for him with her shallow breathing. He ended up calling an ambulance and she went to the hospital. They gave her tests and was there until about 4 or 5 in the morning before she started showing signs. She was dehydrated was a part of it. The tests were showing the symptoms were improving and she was beginning to come out of it fortunately with doctor's care because he didn't know what to do. He had been going through materials and she is coming up on another shot next Monday and does not want her to go through that if it can be helped. She was coming up for the second shot. Saw something on the tv that rattled him to his bones. It had been found that people who had Covid virus previously and then got the shot may not need a second shot. He is trying to flush that out to whether or not that is something or not that she should be considering. They have the card to go back to the same place for the second shot and they are trying to figure if they need to set up an appointment now. Hoping that this was the worse of it and it is hard for them to call back and his physician is not an expert on this and he got Pfizer's office contact number and decided to call. Outcome of the events was recovering. Information on the batch/ lot number has been requested.

Myocarditis/had another virus that went to her heart; trouble remembering; incredible fatigue; could sleep around the clock; brain fog; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse (Patient). An 80-years-old female patient received the second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EL9265), intramuscular at Right Deltoid from on 16Feb2021 11:00 at single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included stomach was burning, heartburn, low thyroid, myocarditis and was hospitalized a year ago, Milroy's disease, and low potassium, heart disorder and Back disorder. Concomitant medications included bumetanide (BUMEX) Has been taking for about 40 years for Milroy's disease, rosuvastatin calcium (CRESTOR) from Jan2020 for Myocarditis, levothyroxine Has been taking for 40 years for low thyroid, tramadol Started about 10-12 years ago for back, metoprolol from Jan2020 for heart, omeprazole (PROTONIX) Started taking about 8 years ago for stomach was burning and heartburn, potassium Has taken for 40-50 years for low potassium, vitamin B12, vitamin D3 and baby aspirin 81mg, all were ongoing. The patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (lot number: EL8982) on an unknown date for covid-19 immunization and she got a really sore arm. The patient experienced Myocarditis/had another virus that went to her heart on an unspecified date, brain fog on 17Feb2021, trouble remembering on an unspecified date, incredible fatigue on 17Feb2021, could sleep around the clock on 17Feb2021. The clinical course as following: injection was on 16Feb2021. She has had incredible fatigue. She was asking how long is the fatigue going to last. She knows it is a side effect but she could sleep around the clock. She stated she goes to bed at 6PM if not before then and gets up at around 8AM and by 9AM she could go back to bed. She is sorry she got the shot because she is miserable. She mentioned she has been reading up on the vaccine and it said "you might have fatigue for a day or two". Her fatigue has now been 8 days. She thought "how long is this going to go on". Patient reported that with the first shot she got a really sore arm. Stated she thinks the person giving the injection put the darn thing through her bone. She thought it was to be expected, but it feels like the person who administered the vaccine was a poor shot giver. She provides the first Covid Vaccine Lot number: EL8982. With the second shot her arm did not get sore at all. The only thing she's having was the fatigue, she can hardly walk past her bed without wanting to get back in it. She tries to get up to shower and fix her hair and be motivated and she's been fighting the fatigue all day to not get back in bed. When probed for the seriousness criteria of the fatigue, the caller explains she doesn't think it's that significant. She thought it will go away. However, she was just coming out of myocarditis. She was just in the hospital for myocarditis and they did a heart cath and she has no plugged arteries, nothing. They couldn't find anything other than she had another virus that went to her heart. She had another virus a year ago January. She wonders if COVID was out there then, because she had never been so sick with the flu. She kind of diagnosed her problem and it was like a wave over her body. She also had a terrible irregular pulse. When she went to the hospital the next morning, her cardiac enzymes were 4.5 times more than normal, her troponin was out of sight. She doesn't think that would have a bearing because she should be coming out of that myocarditis because of the medication the doctor put her on. She doesn't know if that would complicate it, too. Her heart doctor said a lot of people have myocarditis, especially athletes, but they are young and fall over dead. 90% of the time, its myocarditis because you don't know you have it. She reports she's getting a foggy brain. Her son asked her who her dentist was because she had a root canal and she couldn't think of the dentist's name. She thinks her son threw that in because her son knew that she wouldn't be able to remember. She's not confused. It's just difficult to get the word out, but if she waits a couple minutes, she has the answer. She is also getting old, too. She lives by herself; she has no stimulation and she thinks that is significant to her circumstances. She thinks it's a problem with the COVID-19 injection. Caller explains she had blood work very recently about 2 weeks ago. She just looked at lab reports and everything was okay except one of the vitamins was a tiny bit high (she can't remember what the vitamin was), but nothing she was worried about. It could have been a Potassium was a little high, but she is not worried about that. Her main question is how long the fatigue last, she thought for only 1-2 days. She mentions she took her temperature every morning and its always like 97 something and it's never wavered. The outcome of the events brain fog, incredible fatigue, and could sleep around the clock was not recovered and the outcome of the other events was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on the information provided, viral myocarditis is most likely due to a viral infection in this patient with cardiovascular co-morbidities and is not related to suspect product. 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.

Clinical course was reported as follows. She mentioned that she was fine for 20-30 minutes to an hour after she got home. That afternoon, she noticed that her bowel movement was regular, constant, and repeating which was not normal and would typically indicate SIBO (Small intestine bowel overflow) in which the colon empties everything. She mentioned that this was indicative of her gluten allergy. She reported having had bowel movements all afternoon which is a common allergic reaction she has to plants like lectin and gluten especially due to the irritable bowel system-her whole bowel system will empty and she will have to replace 2 days worth of food. With this event starting 01Mar2021 her bowels just kept emptying and emptying. During dinner while she was eating and watching tv, her heart started to pound (a rapid heartbeat), her ears started to ring (a pounding in her ears), she had pressure in her jaw, chest, head, ears, and allover, she had high pressure, and a choking episode in which her throat tickled, and dizziness that she couldn't get up. She took hot water for the tickling sensation and took one aspirin for the other symptoms, but she still did not feel very well. She went to bed at 9pm but couldn't sleep due to high adrenal stimulance, she only slept like 2-3 hours long which she can get from Novocaine with her teeth. She got up 3 times and excreted a cup of urine per time. In the morning, she woke up and excreted 1 cup of urine more than what she usually does. She got herself weighed and had a weight of 109lbs versus the normal 122lbs which indicated that she was really dehydrated so she took her fluids and ate breakfast. Other than this, she mentioned that she got up today and felt fine and feels that in 2 days she will be fine. She felt pretty good and she was going to run but did not dare burn any more calories or fluids so she is sitting still and taking it easy. Regarding outcome of event she reported the pounding pressure like high blood pressure are better, fine# she had a normal breakfast# she can get around and do whatever she needs around the house except she needs now to spend the day recouping from the dehydration so she needs pay attention to what she eats and drinks. She mentions that she runs 3-4 miles a day and tries to be active for her age. She is asking if she can take the 2nd dose in 3 weeks. She is unsure if this is an allergic reaction or something psychological. The outcome of the event was reported as recovering.

Feeling inactive, not going out so patient gained a lot of weight. Patient took blood pressure medication and for heart some basically and patient didn't sleep well, so patient took Alprazolam to relax to sleep, but patient was an insomniac but that was basically problem. The patient's concomitant medication included isosorbide. Patient had the first Pfizer shot and wasn't even sore or anything, patient was so happy but that about 4 or 5 hours later about maybe 5 o'Clock, patient had allergic reaction and started to feel a sensation in lip and when she looked in the mirror, what was all that on lip and one side on lip it had turned white and it had lump was extended along lip line, lymph node was swelling up and patient had white lumps on lip which still had but it was going down and some white patches on face. Nothing happened on the 24Feb2021. Patient thought it was the 25Feb2021 that was when all trouble started. Patient felt like nightmare because she started feeling like something was choking her in mouth and next minute patient started coughing, coughing real hard and that was terrible cough then after this strange voice and patient realized it was breathing and it was like somebody has cranky paper in hand which screaming up that's what breath sounded like. Patient start to get out of bed and then waken to kitchen, patient had terrible headache, joint pain, pain all over from head to foot and patient was certainly dehydrated. She had no water in at all, she was like don't know something come over and felt like she was sort of leaving the world, patient was like fainting, and panicked. Patient had terrible pains all over and felt like patient was dying, patient was going to die. Patient said she need an ambulance, patient was very ill and had to be taken to hospital. They came within a few minutes, they started questioning about what was happening and they put patient to the emergency room and well they test patient for Covid as well naturally. It was negative, they did it 2 times and it was negative. When they took patient to one of the room in fact patient was frightened because they didn't told patient it was negative. Patient said she got the virus, they said not but patient had to take the oxygen as it's surge to scan on lungs. They said patient had allergic reaction to the vaccine. Patient was supposed to have it but at the same time there was the variant, doctor said patient was 70% covered, didn't have it but patient want to just check the status was with a person like her was allergic.

Early the next morning they put patient down 2' o'clock in the morning. Patient wanted to go home, they said patient can't as she had very bad infection in lungs which was completely untrue. The next morning (the same morning early), patient was okay because the pains and everything was gone but she believe the medication they put patient on that caused to short of breath and patient said please don't give her the medication and they did. They only give generic medicine in the hospital and patient took brand name. On 26Feb2021 patient actually called the doctor for all results and she told nothing, patient didn't get the result. Anyway they took patient off one medication, they didn't give it to her and this medication you can not get off of it and through that patient had a headache the whole of the day and the whole day on the 26Feb2021 patient was suffering with very bad headache and kept asking for the medication they said they would give to the patient. Finally the doctor gave only to the aspirin and paracetamol (TYLENOL) that both the same and in the end patient husband have to go and get the pill because they still hadn't given it to patient all day long. Patient said to doctor because she was breathing hard and she said the doctor did this to her by giving these pills that don't agree with her. She told she can not take this medication, anyway the doctor said to patient husband go home and get her medication, and he said so now you are medicating yourself. By the next day patient was ready, she was breathing normally and was ready to go home but late afternoon they said patient should go home but she still had those white patches but they were not as prominent as what they were.

The morning after Mom's first dose of the Pfizer shot, Dad woke up and found Mom lying on the floor next to the bed. Mom said, "I can't move my arm." Dad called paramedics who checked her. They said her vital signs were normal and left. On 2/9/21 in the morning my da awoke to see that Mom had large amounts of bubbly saliva pouring from her mouth onto her pillow. Dad called paramedics, who said this was a diabetic reaction. Mom had NEVER had anything happen like this before. Mom was very sleepy, could not be aroused, and made only gurgling noises. She was admitted to the hospital for care and therapy. She pulled her own IV out. Mom had to be restrained in the hospital and sedated, due to confusion and worsening dementia. By 2/18 when we spoke by phone mom's speech was abnormally slow and very repetitive. "I'm very tired today" was spoken many times. In morning time mom was able to follow basic conversation. Not so later in the day. Mom came home from rehab on 2/26/21. She was able to walk steadily and independently at home after her therapy. After a week or so, Mom began hitting the in-home caregiver. Dad's presence would calm her. In a short time Mom seemed not to know dad anymore, and would hit him and the caregiver when they helped her. She also pulled all covers off the bed and pulled clothes out of the closet, throwing them all over the room during the night. Mom was usually walking around the house during each night. On 4/16/21 Mom and dad were napping sitting up on the couch in the morning. Mom fell forward and hit her head on the hearth. Dad and caregiver gave first aid and called paramedics, who took her to the ER. Mom came home on 4/17/21. On 4/18/21 Mom pulled her catheter out in the early morning. In the afternoon Mom's appearance was concerning, so Dad called paramedics. They said that Mom's BP had dropped very low and took her to the ER. Mom was combative the next day in the hospital. Dr. adjusted her medications periodically to ensure that mom's care would be manageable when she would eventually be sent home. Minimal therapy was done due to dementia. By 5/3/21 doctor said that Mom is bed bound and needing total care. Her blood sugar spiked high despite special diet. Staff waiting for insulin order from doctor. 5/4/21 Doctor called Dad to say that Mom had died during the night.

I got my first shot on 1/5/2021. I had no adverse effects from the first shot. Three weeks later I got my second shot on 1/26/2021. Three days after that, on 1/29/2021, I became quite ill. I had sudden onset of total body weakness, I was unable to sleep for 4 days, I developed a constant frontal headache, I felt like my body was electrified, my eyes started twitching and feeling like my eyelids were being pulled, my face felt like it was being pulled on one side, my nose became runny and hasn't stopped. To this day I have no energy and am not like my old self before the shot. I have gone downhill incredibly fast. My doctors don't know what to do with me and I don't think things are going to get better. My day to day life is a struggle. I have no energy to do things. One of the only things I have not had is a fever. My eye doctor told me he thinks I had a GROSS IMMUNE SYSTEM REACTION to the vaccine. 0 I would appreciate it if there is anything you can do to help me. Thank you,

The patient has been having severe pain that was increasingly getting worse. Has been to the emergency room twice and seen multiple doctors and various specialists and given multiple drugs for relief that have not helped. They have scheduled to see a pain specialist in next week. At that time they really had not tried it to the vaccine at all. Costochondritis has been suggested and various other related spine issues and stuff. Stated her pain was getting severely and progressively worse and she could not sleep at night and stayed up all night. The pain pill given, it was just not lasting long enough and she only took it once a day and gets a little relief, but no sleep and up all night. Has been alternating heat and ice and it did not do it. They have not been able to sleep 80-90% of the nights and was up if not part but all night. It became worse as time gone on and they were desperate. They used the Salonpas and one burned her skin so they quit those about 2 weeks ago, sometime early June. The area has improved when she quit using those, but the skin was still sensitive and rough feeling. They had one medication prescribed when went to the emergency room, but she ran out of them and another medication. Was told she did not need to use the prescription ones and to used the over the counter ones and so they bought the Salonpas and it burned her. She was given anti-inflammatories and used Tylenol in the early stages and it helped a little bit, but not doing it now since given a pain medication. Unable to provide the name of anti-inflammatories or the Tylenol UPC, Lot, and expiries. Believes one of the anti-inflammatories may have been a supped up Ibuprofen, but could not recall, but it did not help. They believed the pain medication may have Codeine in it because it was only prescribed for a little bit at a time. It's one of those addicting type things. Has tried taking this pain medication in the evening to sleep, but that didn't work and she had so much pain in the morning. Has now been taking them in the morning and that lasts for 8 hours, but she was not allowed to take anymore until the next morning. The relevant tests were reported as none.
