Just Got Covid 19 Vaccine Yesterday After Months Of Procrastination. Today All Aches And Pains Today, Dreading The 2nd Shot. Anyone Else?

I had my 1st AstraZeneca just over 3 months ago, and the second nearly 3 weeks ago.

First one produced flu like symptoms first night, then aches, pains, exhaustion (vaccination related I could tell) on & off for 3 months, slowly got better.

Second one, no flu reaction but I feel like all my muscles & nerves have scrambled… This reminds me of the worst days of Fibro symptoms and reminds me of a particularly bad flu I had years ago, where I’m sure my Fibro really kicked off. I’m sure anyone experiencing Long Covid is now experiencing what we have all been going through.

I procrastinated re immunisation too, knowing that reactions like this were bound to happen. But I figured being vaccinated is probably saving us from a worse fate, and helping to protect our families and communities too.

I’m hoping these extra symptoms will start to fade soon. 🌸

Good for you! Take Tylenol round the clock. No anti inflammatories. Second one lasted 36 hours for me, then all symptoms gone. Worth not getting this Delta variant. Hugs🦋

I too dreaded getting the vaccine. I received the Moderna vaccine. No issues with the first. I was tired from the second, but nothing out of the ordinary for a day in a life of someone who has fibro.
