I got my second vaccine shot yesterday (Friday).
When I got the first shot, I had symptoms in about an hour. I felt sick, tired, feverish, achy, etc. Spent the night sweating through my sheets, then having chills. However, within about 24 hours the only symptom that remained was the exhaustion.
Second time around, I didn’t feel as though anything was “off” for about four hours. At that point, I started to get tired. I got my shot at 2 PM. I went to bed and had a nap, sleeping for 30 minutes, at about 7 PM. (This is VERY unusual for me. I do not nap.) I was so tired I couldn’t read my book. I played some games on my phone, but mainly I just stared off into space waiting until it was time for me to go to bed.
Woke up this morning (Saturday) tired. I also woke up with an ear ache. I didn’t realize until I was combing my hair that my scalp also hurt. That whole side of my face is slightly swollen. It’s the same side that I got my shot. I figure it’s just my body being weird.
I don’t know how long this exhaustion is going to last. I’m hoping that by this afternoon, all will be well again. But even though I’m reacting to this shot, this reaction is very mild compared to the first one.
How are y’all doing? It’s beautiful outside here, a little cool, but going to be a gorgeous day. I’m sitting on the couch with a purring kitty, drinking homemade chicken soup (bone broth) and contemplating another nap.
