Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


I'm a 41 year old woman: married for 16 years, 3 kids, health professional. My period had been regular and light, lasting 3-4 days, minimal cramping on day 1. I received the first dose of pfizer c19vax in December 2020 because I qualified as a health care worker; felt arm soreness and headache x2 days and continued working. I received the second dose January 2021; felt arm soreness, chills (no fever), arm tingling, headache, joint pain (specific to wrists, hands, fingers, knees, ankle joints) x 10 days, and my period came the day after c19vax#2 (which was earlier than expected; especially considering my history of regularity). Period came heavy, and painfully strong. Lasted 7 days. Period has been like that since January. So painful that I cry (as I wait for pain medication to take effect). 29 years of a light 3 day period vs 10 months of heavy, painful 7 day period and now I've become anemic due to blood loss. And have become vitamin deficient. Need to take supplements for both. I have an ultrasound pending. But if they don't find a source for the severe bleeding, they will be recommending a hysterectomy to control the bleeding, to resolve the anemia.
