Yeah, that shringrix beat me up too.Mine were two glasses of Cab 30 minutes after. No problem at all with the J&J. Now I did have the shingles vaccine three weeks later. I got up the next morning to work out. I felt pretty hazy driving to the Y. I made it about 15 minutes then drove....very slowly back home.
I’m almost 24 hours from getting the shot and the pain I described above is almost gone, just feels like a bruise when touched now.Got the first Pfizer dose yesterday afternoon. My arm was really sore last night, like somewhere in between getting punched really hard and the feeling after a gym workout that went way too far. It hurt a lot to move certain ways, like raising my arm over my head. Pain level went down this morning, but it’s still really sore when I move it. My wife and brother also got first doses of Pfizer yesterday and have been experiencing roughly the same thing.
The shot itself was unlike any other I’ve ever had though. Completely pain free. I didn’t even feel it puncture the skin. I just barely felt something touch me briefly and it was done.
Yes.My son had Covid in December. He had his first shot of Moderna on Saturday and got sick, a higher fever, chills for two days and now he is better. Should someone who had Covid expect an even worse reaction on the second vaccine?
About six years ago, I was walking to the bathroom when I started feeling lightheaded. I immediately sat down on my bathroom floor, in case was about to pass out, which had happened to me once many years prior. Next thing I knew, I was waking up on the floor of my bathroom and the back of my head hurt. Turns out that I was about to pass out, and when I did, I fell backwards and hit the back of my head on the top of the bottom door hinge. I got a concussion, with all kinds of strange neurological problems, that put me mostly on bed rest for the next six months. It took a year before I felt completely normal again.Fortunately since I was already on all fours the fall wasn't as far this time.
It does feel pretty superheroish to walk into non mask requiring places without a mask and feel fine even if someone coughs LOL!Update since this morning: My superpowers I think have slowly started to develop. A cat walked up to me out of nowhere and meowed at me. I stared at it told it to go away, and it turned around and left. I may have some ability to speak to animals. Still a work in progress that will require more testing. Child also left her little sit on car in the living room. It was in my way, so I picked it up and moved it. Superhuman strength? We shall see.
After a 2hr nap that my body deemed necessary, the only negative is that my injection spot hurts a bit. No fever, no other aches.
Give it a couple of months before you call yourself cleared - it took 6 weeks for a rash to break out so I guess the immune system is working. Searching the inter web, like any vaccine, it can bring out latent defects. Stories I've read show that, for example, some of us have a form of herpes (not STD) and people see blistering, and one story is that a brain tumor that existed in one patient, only showed up after the vaccine and helped save the man. Some odd stuff. I had a rash after 6 weeks but Claritin and Benadryl cream got rid of it after a week.Now that my wife and I are 3 and 4 days out from our 2nd Pfizer vaccine I can confidently say we were among the 50% who had no reaction to the vaccine other than a slightly sore arm.
