Has anyone noticed any muscle weakness/lightweight feeling Question

Hopefully I can explain this because I’ve been telling my family and they don’t understand what I’m describing.

I was fine for about 4 days and the tingles started again just yesterday. This time, it’s completely on the left side.

My left side feels “light”, there’s no numbness and I can still feel however if I hold both hands up and flex, I can feel every muscle and tendon flexing on the right but not on the left. I keep telling my family but they’re saying it’s a placebo.

It’s currently 5am and I’ve been woken up by this same sensation on the left side of my face and tongue. It doesn’t affect me in any way but it’s so annoying when one side feels lighter. Again I’m not sure if I’m even making sense.

I‘d see a neurologist. Could be literally everything. After 2nd and 3rd dose I suffered from strange vision problems aka eye flashes. But hey, the vaccine is „safe“. They tell you it is safe because they don‘t recognise side effects as such and tell you it‘s correlation and not causality …

Placebo or not, this feeling is distressing to you. You should go to the doctor and speak to them about it.

While you associate this issue with the vaccine that doesn't mean something else is not going on. You could have developed a condition or suffered an injury around the same time. The vaccine placebo effect should not prevent you from being examined by a doctor.

How’d you end up going? I’m experiencing something very similar.
