I am a week pas vaccine number 1 (Pfizer) and feeling pretty good. The only lingering issue has to do with taste. I still cannot taste anything unless there is a heavy or strong flavor.
I was tired for several days and slept through most of that, with a few headaches and sore arm for a day or two.
Interested to see how I handle the second dose. My understanding is that my post vaccine symptoms point to the fact that I probably had COVID before we knew what COVID was.
In December of 2019 I traveled for work to an AWS event in Las Vegas. Roughly 7-10 days after returning I dropped. I haven’t been that sick in years. Cough, rattle in my lungs, unable to breathe with fever and fatigue. Was tested for flu and came back negative. The thought at the time was I suffered from Pneumonia. I ended up severely sick for 6-8 weeks before finally recovering. I felt like someone was sitting on my chest the entire time and taking a breath was brutal.
Second dose coming up soon. Will see how it goes.
