R2/R12 yeah, my arm is a bit sore, too, and getting the Pfizer I expected that. Three days is a while, though—were you worried? They say phone your doctor if you have noticeable painful symptoms more than 48 hours after.
ATM I’ve got some other weird effects, like a horrible metallic x rotten banana taste in my mouth (like I’ve been licking a sink pipe), slightly dry gritty eyes (like you get when you wake up too early), clammy hands with a ‘heaviness’ in the chest and a congested feeling in my mouth & nose (like when you’re recovering from flu), and little muscle twinges in my shoulder and neck. My lips are a bit tingly and sore, as well, as they’ve been stung by something. It doesn’t say anything about these effects in the leaflets they gave me at the health centre, though I was told to drink as much water as I could possibly stomach for the next couple of days (I type sipping a pint glass of it rn).

R1 since you asked—I was one of the guinea pigs for a now-withdrawn combo birth control/acne relief pill, that turned out to have been a repurposed chemo drug.
It gave a swathe of people around my age (currently mid-late 20s) awful side effects of which we weren’t warned. Dozens committed suicide as a direct result of chronic depression brought on by it, while many others suffered haemorrhages & clots (some resulting in amputations), seizures & breakdowns/breaks with reality, bone degradation, muscle wastage and dangerous inexplicable weight loss, blindness & vision loss, tooth & hair loss, renal failure, etc.
Could kick myself for agreeing to take it at fifteen years old, and I was one of the lucky ones who only got a long bad case of depression (about a decade of moderate dysmythia), vitaminaoisis, and much thinner dryer hair & skin. Basically, I spend my entire adolescence and young adulthood in a room by myself crying and cowering from depressive demons, so hopefully that explains my reservations and my deep sense of misgiving & grief when it comes to traditional medicine. I haven’t fully trusted doctors or the medical establishment since, so it took a lot of emotional and psychological work to get me into that centre for the vaccine today.

The main point is that I’m finding it a challenge to tell the difference between normal symptoms of the jab (the type we don’t need to worry about), abnormal symptoms of the jab (worrying), and symptoms of panic.
Like, am I finding it harder to breathe because I’m freaking out, because I’ve got a very mild symptom from an immune response, or because my lungs are under attack and it’s serious? Does my body feel so wrong because I’m tensed and scared, because it’s sorting out internal defences, or because I’m clotting as we type? I can’t tell the difference and it’s stressing me out, is what it is.
Right now I’ve made a cup of tea, gone to my bedroom, and I’ll try to calm down with some light breathing and stretching. Beyond that, I don’t know how to sort through all this and figure out what’s going on, and what I need to do next.

Well, the literature out there speculating about the inefficacy and even impossibility of a vaccine against COVID (and previously SARS) given previous trials, and the predictions some scientists have made about a storm of potential negative effects to come, does make you wonder.
Just because you or no-one you know has had an adverse reaction too yet doesn’t mean anything. In a year, we might all be dying because we’re experiencing ADE.
And the fact that governments have so quickly rolled out schemes that push for an entire global population to be injected (with...something)....it’s a lot to consider.
But there’s no way to avoid having to have the vaccine, if you want or need to continue living in society.

Still doesn’t change the fact that I don’t feel too clever right now.

Had the 2 Pfizer shots in March. Kaiser Permanents HMO rented a gymnasium downtown just for this so it was done very professionally and efficiently. I was a bit nervous too because of everything I'd read online about reactions afterward. Didn't feel the shots at all. They made everybody sit down for 15 minutes after the shot to make sure no allergic reactions. Had a slightly bruised feeling in the arm, otherwise no after-effects. Glad I did it there rather than at a drug store. Last November got a flu shot at a nearby Walgreens. There was only one guy in the pharmacy dept. He was very rushed and overworked and made me feel guilty for even asking.

R54 it was quietly reported on, some years after the fact. There were financial incentives suppressing the stories for a while, but they came out eventually (remind you of anything else? Starting with a ‘T’ and ending in ‘stock’...) Recently there have even been a few celebrities who’ve spoken out, like Bella Thorne. Some five years ago, the drug about which I’m speaking was finally banned and withdrawn from the market. There are victims who have sued for medical malpractise, with mixed success. Given that it’s been over a decade since this happened to me, I have done my utmost to try and let it go so I can move on, despite the enormous blow to my life trajectory and wellbeing—you’re probably right that some residual anxiety over it lingers that I need to address.

Did anyone have dry eyes and pains behind the sockets? I think it’s connected to the prickling clammy skin and the feeling of constricted circulation. Lots of people have been online reporting about similar symptoms (that go on for months...), and I saw someone mention vasculitis as a cause, which makes sense to me. Isn’t that pretty serious, though? I don’t know whether or not to report it and call my doctor.
Joint pains and ‘shingles’ are getting worse for me, as well. Is this just a cykotine storm gone mad, or what? According to my research L-lysine can help with the shingly feeling, though I’ve never tried it out myself. I’m 28 but atm I feel like I’m about 68.

I have terrible reactions to so many medications and have gotten anaphylaxis while I was a in-patient in a hospital. They brought in the crash cart and everything.
I got my vaccines at the end of March and in April. I was so scared I was literally trembling when I walked into the vaccine center. I told them my history with medications and they were very nice and reassuring and told me to stay at least 30 minutes after the shot and if I felt more comfortable staying longer I was more than welcome to.
I was fine, I had no reaction at all to the first shot, not even pain at the injection site and a very slight feeling a little crummy, like a general crumminess, nothing specific the next day after the 2nd shot, which I was still very nervous about getting and that was it.

I get ‘rushes’ of breath at random, too. When I swallow or eat, I taste something synthetic and foul. Also, I’ve got a bizarre burning thrumming feeling in my chest, like a cross between heartbeat skips and heartburn.

R25, nope. The soreness with the Pfizer vaccine doesn’t have anything to do with the technique of the person administering the vaccine, but it’s the vaccine itself. Some other vaccines are also known to cause more pain and discomfort for some patients.
The first time around my arm was useless and painful for a week and I was able to smell better than my dogs, which was a really weird side effect. The second time around my arm hurt for about 3 days, but it wasn’t really bad. I also wasn’t able to sniff out bombs at the airport after my second shot.

I was gunshy to name it initially because believe it or not there are also trolls lurking this board who like to downcry those who’ve experienced problems with such medications (I’ve been redlined or abused in the past for bringing it up). I also experienced problems with Roaccutane, a drug investigated in the documentary I posted above. Millennials were given a lot of fucking awful drugs for no good reason by mediocre irresponsible doctors.

It’s especially wonderful being here if you love agriculture, horticulture, sports or the general outdoors and don’t mind keeping to yourself. Sadly, unless you live in Cardiff, arts & culture and career opportunities are lacking, and public transport isn’t reliable or ubiquitous so it’s hard to get anywhere or do anything fun without travelling hours by your own car.
Still, it’s well worth a holiday if you’ve never been, or even looking into a retirement plan/second home later on if you still fancy it after visiting a few times—it’s cheaper to live here than in England & Scotland (not sure how it compares to NI cost-wise).
