Had first part of my vaccine - edited 14th March
So, Saturday I had the first part of the Covid vaccine. I had the Oxford AstraZeneca one. Don't get me wrong, I am over joyed to have been called up for it, but the side effects since are not too good, but as people keep telling me, "it's a sign it is working", geee, thanks for that!
Before I go any further I want to say a massive thank you to AstraZeneca and also the University of Oxford, and the Swansea Bay NHS health board for getting this out.
During yesterday afternoon my arm started hurting and then I started feeling as if I had a head cold coming on. Later in the evening my mind got a bit foggy.
Day two since first part of vaccine jab, I was woken at about 5am this morning. Feeling worse, , woke up in a pool of sweat, and somehow managed to squash my pillow up and out of its pillowcase in the night.
The sweat I could have done without, it was horrible waking up to that, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, waking up in sweat just made me have to get up so I could strip the bed! as for my pillow... can't answer that one.
So sleep seems to be another one of the side effects, seems to be coming in spirts at the moment, twice this afternoon already, I must make my bed from scratch.
Day three since the vaccine jab (part one), and woke up swimming in my bed, sweating again, I did kick the duvet off the bed in the night, and it seems I, once again, attempted to strangle my pillow. My nose has cleared, have a sore throat and am aching so much, it's not my normal aching feeling, it seems it's like a throw of aches over my normal ones. My arm has gone numb 😔Day Four after my first vaccine jab, feeling a little out of sorts, mind fog has descended again but with having a bit of fibromyalgia I am used to that now. I didn't sleep much, as kept rolling on to the arm I had the jab in, you see I knew I should have had it in the left arm instead of the right as I sleep better on the right, or at least, I did! It is very tender still, but the pain seems to have gone that was there - so that is a big 👍, I can only hope that this is the turning of the corner. Now how many times will I either nod off or get the urge to head to bed for a nap 🤔
