Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.



In February, 2021, I received my first dose of Moderna. I had the normal aches that went away after a couple of days but a week later had ""covid arm"" where it was very sore, swollen, and had a red ring song the whole shoulder. One day after my second dose, my throat, tongue, and face swelled up. I couldn't swallow it talk (only whisper). I called the doc who had me call the paramedics. The paramedics checked me out and told me to go into urgent care right away. I am allergic to the steroid injection they wanted to give me and I couldn't swallow the pill, so I had to take liquid benadryl. It took 5 days to recover enough to go to work.

Since then, I've had random, severe joint pain that moves from place to place. One day the pain is in my knee and the next it'll be in my neck, shoulder, hands, or even my collarbone.

I'm at a loss... my doc wants to send my to an ortho doc, but how can they diagnose a migrating, mysterious pain?
