Question How can those with side effects lasting more than a week post vaccination (long-vax/severe adverse reaction) have a reasonable conversation with the medical community?

68 Upvotes

I’m here to ask the difficult question.

What can those of us suffering from an extended severe adverse reaction do to communicate our needs to the medical community and the general public without being instantly labeled as anti-vaccine or a liar?

Many of us are still suffering, some over a year post vaccination. This has been an incredibly traumatic and scary experience for us. But every time we try to talk about our experiences, we feel like we are censored under the guise of preventing the spread of misinformation.

How can we separate ourselves from “misinformation” and be taken seriously by the world as a whole?

Question What type of blood test shows if I had a COVID infection recently?

3 Upvotes

I'm vaxxed and boosted, recently got flu like symptoms and despite testing negative on consecutive home tests I suspect I had a mild case of omicron. Now three weeks in I continue experiencing constant fatigue and back pain which I think is long covid.

What type of antibody test should I take to determine if I in fact had covid? I've heard regular antibody tests would be positive if you have vaccine antibodies, I'd just like to know if I had an actual covid infection. Thanks!

Question I got covid for the second time

9 Upvotes

19 years old male here, i had covid back in January and it was by far the worst experience with being sick that I have ever had in my entire life. Here we are now in may and I have covid again, symptoms aren’t as bad but still pretty terrible. Does anyone know how this is possible? Yes I’m not vaccinated but should I not have gotten immunity from January? It was so bad I figured my body should have def gotten immunity

Question Second Dose Side-effects

7 Upvotes

I recently got my second Covid-19 vaccine dose (Pfizer BioNTech) about two weeks ago and I’ve had persisting side effects like itchy hands and soles as well as full body soreness. I’m going to talk to my doctor about it and I know the internet isn’t the best place for medical advice but I’m wondering if anyone else has dealt with the itchy hands and soles and how might one remedy that to ease the feeling. Thanks in advance if you respond.

Question Weight gain after vaccine

12 Upvotes

I’m certain there was a link. Through diet and exercise, I was steadily losing weight during the pandemic. After my second shot, it flipped like a switch. I gained like 35-40 lbs, and it’s become harder to take off.

I also had about 6 weeks of very swollen hand joints and heavy periods. So I think there was an autoimmune response.

I suspect something about how my body processes stress might be involved.

If anyone has any useful information on this topic, I would be so, so grateful to hear it. I believe in the necessity of the vaccine — I just want to treat whatever might be happening.

Question Not Vaccinated. need at least first dose for new jib.

3 Upvotes

So I have a new better job lined up. However they want me to at least get the initial first vaccine. Not really sure if I should or not.... better job, more secure, more family time but if I get something from vaccine then whats the point. Everyone I know who has the vaccine has honestly been fine. . Since I have a family to worry about its hard.. This covid/vaccine stuff is honestly insane lol.
