Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?


Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

A day or so after my second dose, my left armpit (on the side I got the injection) ached intensely, and the pain got worse when I was stressed. The pain in my left armpit eventually lessened, but never went away completely, and has since traveled up the left side of my neck, down my left arm, and into my left breast. I also feel an ache in my right armpit. All these pains I feel daily, and get worse with stress. I saw a primary care doctor in December, had bloodwork, and ultrasound of breast and neck, all normal. Feeling extremely frustrated and unsure of how to get rid of these daily pains.
