What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
Within 24 hr, my left arm was so painful, I couldn't even touch it. My lymph gland under left arm swelled to size of a macadamian nut. 3 days later, my hips, knees, big toes, right thumb (had dislocated the thumb 9 months before but was back to normal) had all swelled up.
The lymph gland took approx. 4 months to return to normal.
My knees returned to normal within a few weeks, as did my left hip.
I continue to have swelling in big toes about once a week.
The swelling in right thumb and joint continues to have swelling about once a week.
The issue with my right hip is ongoing. I couldn't walk without pain for 3 months. It slowly had better days than others with the level of pain.
I resumed classes at the Y after 3 months but still cannot walk normally. So no hiking, snowshoeing or walking 5 miles a day-or any walking for exercise.
