Weakness after Vaccine

Edited , 4 users are following.

anyone else experience significant weakness and fatigue for weeks after your vaccine?

i am on first shot of moderna and started losing strength 2 days post shot and it has never improved. I'm due for 2nd dose next well and concerned.

i have not found any information that side effects last more thana few days and I’m at weeks now. normal activities are difficult and so far never the vaccine clinic or primary care has offered any suggestions.

    I thought I was the only one with this exact reaction. Can't find anyone else with it, so I'm glad you posted. After the FIRST Moderna dose I got the SECOND dose reaction of three days of flu-like symptoms. I wasn't concerned and all the symptoms went away except the fatigue, which got progressively worse. It was exactly like the fatigue in the days right after childbirth. It took 10 days to resolve, and I also had this huge metabolic boost that whole time, as if my body were running a marathon but I was just lying on the couch. Felt like I couldn't eat enough calories to keep up. Now I'm completely back to normal, but my doctor advised me not to get the second dose and to get an antibody test in case I had asymptomatic Covid. Even if I did though, people I know who had Covid didn't react this badly to the first dose. I'm a very active 59 year old, small-frame female, in case that has anything to do with it. Anyone else had this reaction?

    Not sure if anyone is still reading this, but if so, check this out on lipid nanoparticles (LNPs): https://www.news-medical.net/news/20210315/Research-looks-at-inflammatory-nature-of-lipid-nanoparticle-component-in-mRNA-vaccines.aspx

    Especially the part that says: The side effects observed with the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine’s first dose are likely associated with the LNPs’ inflammatory properties.

    If I do get a second dose of anything, it'll be J and J, blood clots be damned.

    I am sooo glad i found this. I thought maybe it was anxiety. The day after I received my first moderna dose. I' m due to get my second shot may 23rd, but think i will skip out on it. My arms, legs, and hands feel really weak. They also feel like i have restless leg syndrome in my legs and arms like they have to move. Ive also been really tired lately. My legs and arms sometimes feel like inside tremors. I do notice anxiety makes it worse. Is anyone else symptoms better? how long did it take?
