Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.



Hello everyone, ​

I received my first shot of Pfizer back on May 19th and my second on June 30th. I had little to no side effects from my first but after my second, three days in, they started and have not stopped since. First it was severe chills which I was not too worried about. The second was a period that lasted 11 days, which is out of my normal cycle. Following this, starting 10 days after my second shot, the most intense and relentless calf cramping I've ever experienced began. It almost felt like they were crawling with spasms and they still do to this day. I now feel tightness and pains in certain parts of my legs and live on tylenol and advil to get by. I've been to the emergency room 3 times and my family doctor twice and have been told it's anxiety and to take magnesium and they should go away. I've tried my best to keep my spirits up but it's getting harder everyday with no improvement. I am hoping with time this will end, but I am wondering what to do until then. I am no longer able to work, and I live in Canada so getting to see a neurologist will be months if not a year out so I'm stuck here waiting which is only making things worse. I hope and pray we can all make it through this.
