I have been suffering side-effects since having Covid Jab nealy 6 weeks ago.

I was totally fine for about a week.  Then my upper arm swelled and was red.  I developed arthritis in elow and finger joints.  Muscle / joint aches and debilitating exhaustion.  Even my digestive system is affected.  Has this happened to anyone else?   If so, how long does it take to recover?

I do suffer from a couple of auto-immune diseases (Coeliac - allergy to gluten) and Lichen Planus) so my immune system seems to have gone into over-drive and I am so frustrated!

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

I have had no problems through the 3 covid inoculation. I do suffer with  COPD this is no worse , perhaps You should speak with your doctors or even the local farmacia and explain your problems and concerns. Don't let things get worse.

I had no adverse symptoms whatsoever with any Covid jabs or booster - I was actually thinking I had no immune system left to fight anything ! Niether have I had anything remotely resembling Covid at all.  My friend had quite bad symptoms from; her jabs, but she has a compromised immune system anyway. Just shows how different peoples reactions are. -  But I certainly wouldn't ignore adverse symptoms for more than a couple of weeks before seeking help.

Both my husband and I had some side effects after our second vaccinations. We both got severe chills/shakes for several hours, plus I got a bad headache that lasted a whole week and has been recurrent ever since. My husband was actually bed-ridden for a week with fever, aches and pains, and general malaise. We're not looking forward to having our boosters next month! Doctors recommend taking Nurofen or Paracetamol for the aches and pains but if you have been suffering for 6 weeks, then I would recommend that you go to see your doctor. I hope that you feel better soon. x

I also have not any covid symptoms and I remain unjabbed. How odd!

You may not have any symptoms but could be carrying the virus and passing this on to vulnerable people. I respect your stance but consider it very irresponsible.

You're obviously entitled to your opinion as I am mine. 

Tell me... Have you ever been ill and not known it? 

Asymptomatic is a myth my friend!

Thanks Mags.  Hope you and hubby fully recover soon.   My hubby and sisters sailed through their initial 2 jabs.... but ....Many people we know report that they had very bad reactions to the Booster.  My hubby included.  Severe headaches and it took nearly two weeks of flopping around on the settee before he recovered his energy.

My over-reaction is not because of a compromised lower immune system but because of a over-reactive system.  I have a few auto-immune issues whereby my own body has decided bits of me and simple foods/creams/materials are all aliens and gone into attack mode!  If ever the Martians land my immune system be used as an intergalatic defence weapon :-))

Play nicely now, Paulo.   Eduardo was very respectful of your choice.

As for 'asymptomatic infections'  being a myth, I can pass on information from history right upto date that being infected and not having any symptoms is a genuine, scientific, proven fact.  Google 'Typhoid Mary' for a start...  Many modern documented cases of unsymptomatic folk passing on things like 'salmonella'  'gastrocinteritis' 

How I wish I was one of the lucky ones who immune system worked well without trying to ill off bits of my body too.
