Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Entry Date: 5/25/21

I had the second Pfizer vaccine on Jan 19, 2021. Immediately after, I had bilateral facial numbness that started at the hard palate then spread across my face. It is worse when wearing a mask. The numbness is like when you go out in the cold. As the

months have gotten warmer, and I am wearing masks less often, the numbness seems to happen less often. I am not sure if this is because of spending more time outside or from having less pressure on my face. My family doctor had nothing to offer except a wait-and-see approach. Not critical of her. She doesn't have any answers right now either. I did try B12, but that made it worse
