First Dose of Pfizer on 09/02/21

South Carolina

Update on 06/22/22:

The increased heart arrhythmia that I have noticed following the 1st Pfizer is still occurring. After 60+ years of preference, I can no longer sleep on my left slide as my heart begins to skip beats. The left side tingling and burning is intermittent, as is the brain fog.


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

Active, healthy

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

About 4 hours after the jab, I started with symptoms as if the entire left side of my body was on fire. I had brain fog and lethargy for about a week. I now have increased heart arrhythmia and intermittent burning and tingling on the left side of my body usually face, hands and feet but also my trunk at times.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

Not horribly worse, but the burning and arrhythmia are concerning and irritating.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

I had an echocardiogram and wore a monitor which were inconclusive.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?


Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?


Q: What do you wish others knew?

I am not anti-vaccine, but I will not take another m-RNA shot, which leaves me in the discriminated against "one shot" group.
