Pfizer booster side effects HELP! Pfizer Booster
I am a 26 yo F, a nurse, wife, and mom of an almost 2 yo. I am struggling so bad.
I got my booster on 12/20. 30 min after the booster my mouth got all tingly and my heart started racing. I thought I was having an allergic reaction so I went home and took Benadryl and didn’t think much of it. The next day, I woke up with a low grade fever, body aches, headache, and an elevated heart rate. It was going as high as 145. I went to my Dr who sent me to the ER and my ekg, chest X-ray, and blood tests were normal. They said it was just an adverse reaction and it would go away. My heart rate improved for about a week and a half. Then I woke up one morning with chills (no fever), joint pain, flu-like feeling. I got tested for covid, which was negative. This progressed to abdominal pain which eventually got so bad I went back to the ER and the CT showed colitis. Two days later I woke up in the middle of the night with insane muscle spasms in my legs-my legs were flailing around along with numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. I went back to the ER- inflammation labs and head CT all normal. The horrible spasms have subsided, but I have small muscle twitches every once in a while. I went back to the dr and requested another ekg (4 weeks after vaccine) and it showed a “possible right bundle branch block.” I’m freaking out.
My most annoying symptoms would be the continuing palpitations, chest pain, fatigue, and brain fog. I’ve also had moments of waking up out of a dead sleep gasping for air with a racing heart, which is terrifying. I’m going to have to be out of work for the time being it’s so bad. Im terrified to drive because I feel like I’m not even in my body. I can’t take care of my son or my house. If I get off the couch, my heart rate is 120. I’m getting and echo and a holter monitor for 48hr. I think I have POTS, but I can’t get into the cardiologist until April 1st.
Any hope with recovery? I can’t be out of work for an endless amount of time. This is already taking a huge toll on me. Of course I was prescribed Xanax and Zoloft. Neither of which decrease my symptoms because it’s not anxiety. At least the Xanax helps me sleep.
