First Dose of Pfizer on 10/13/21
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
I wasn't exhausted and didn't suffer from random attacks of shortness of breath, nor chest pain.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
My symptoms started 48hrs after the first dose. Very first symptom was a constant headache and sharp chest pain. A few days after that I started experiencing shortness of breath that came randomly, I was normally at rest when this happened. The chest pain was off and on. I then began with a rash all over my body that was insanely itchy (later to be confirmed by my doctor that it was hives). My eyes became bloodshot and puffy. I always felt like something was in my eyes as well.
Q: What was your life like after you got the vaccine?
I'm always exhausted, and my body sometimes aches. The headaches are an everyday occurrence. Chest pain and shortness of breath are off and on.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
My doctor confirmed that I had hives and angioedema of the eyes
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
Not reported. My doctor wrote me an exemption for the 2nd dose temporarily until I see an allergist.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
Aleve helps for headaches temporarily
Q: What do you wish others knew?
If you don't have to get the vaccine, then don't. I was forced into getting it, or I lose my job.
