Welcome to Phoenix Rising!
Created in 2008, Phoenix Rising is the largest and oldest forum dedicated to furthering the understanding of and finding treatments for complex chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), long COVID, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and allied diseases.

A friend of mine who got the two shots got several illnesses over a period of weeks - a cold sore (which he never gets), prostatitis (with 103 degree fever, was put on drugs and recovered) and finally shingles. His initial experience with getting the shots was a high fever and two days of "hell" with the second shot.
The aim of the survey is to provide data that can be used, along with personal stories, to help our campaign to make the government aware of the impact that Covid-19 is having on people with ME and the need to provide effective support to those affected.
The initial findings, based on the first 220 responses, show clearly that Covid-19 had a significant impact on respondents. Over three quarters of the respondents said that Covid-19 made their ME symptoms worse. This impact appears to be long lasting, with over two thirds of respondents reporting that the worsening in symptoms has lasted more than 6 months and have still not resolved. Not only have existing symptoms worsened, but over 70% of respondents reported that they had developed new symptoms, including shortness of breath, chest pain and dizziness.
I had Flu vaccine on 13th October
First Pfizer shot on 06th April
Second Pfizer shot on 02th may
I had very bad reaction to Flu vaccine and very bad reaction to the second Pfizer.
The latest is just starting today so I will wait a bit before documenting and comparing bad reactions from one or another vaccine...
I'm currently fighting a very bad fluish reaction with neuropathic autonomic/sensory symptoms, I hope it will end soon.
I'm working up my bravery for getting the vaccine.
I'm leaning towards getting it soon now though still terrified after previous quite severe reactions to other vaccines. Seems like most people here and on the other forum have not suffered long term ill effects from the vaccines.
I hope so, many people experience flu reaction to the second injection, for one or two days, sometimes a week, so nothing to worry about I thinkSorry to hear that. Hope it resolves quickly!
