Second Moderna shot. Second day.

Oh my gawd, if I didnít know these were just side effects...lol.

Woke up about 8:30am. Head, neck, and back all sore. No fever. But Iím 59 years old and I know that most of the aches and pains I wake up with can be cured by getting out of bed, up and around, and on my feet. Same this morning. For a bit.

Every now and then Iím the only one home, and today was one of those days. So Iím staring at my guitars and thinking one thing: What a great time to do some laundry and vacuum the house! So I did. But when I was done with that, the fever aches hit me. Still no fever, but every joint in my body was on fire, and still is.

And now that the dryer is done (I wonít run the dryer when Iím asleep and/or nobodyís home) but now that itís done, so am I.

Nighty-night, kids!

1. Tons of rest, please! You deserve it

I was knocked out after my one-and-done J&J...no real side effects except that I was EXTREMELY tired for several days, and I was a bit on the chilly side.

But TOTALLY unlike you, I simply crashed into bed and slept it off!

Take it easy, for so many reasons. Most of the stuff (except kids and pets) can wait a few days....

3. I was chilled to the bone the next day

I couldn't get warm. I flopped on the sofa, covered in a thick throw and several dogs, and I was still freezing. Then a headache. Then a slight fever. The next day I was fine except for a sore arm.

But very happy it's over and I'm "safe".

Body aches and stiffness. All gone the day after.

You're on your way to immunity!

8. Now you've got me worried that since I had no discernible after-affects of my second

Moderna jab last Thursday that I didn't get the vax at all but maybe just some saline.
Somebody talk me down!

14. I had my second Pfizer a couple of weeks ago.

When we left the store I told my partner that I didn't even feel the needle go in. As the day progressed I still had no side effects and I said, "I don't think there were any drugs in that syringe because I don't feel any side effects and I didn't even feel the needle go in." The next morning I was eating my words because I felt horrible all day.

26. I had a day of brain fog after Pfizer #1

Nothing awful, sore arm as typical, but even though I slept it felt like I hadn't.

The second day might have been just contrast or my imagination but I felt *awesome* for some reason.

Scheduled for shot #2 in a few weeks, hopefully I won't have the dreaded second dose effects. Luckily it's on a Friday so I'll have the weekend to recover if necessary.

12. My side effects lasted about a day and a half.

Just took lots of Ibuprofen, drank a lot of tea and water and stayed in bed to let my body heal.

Hope you feel better soon!

13. I had my second Moderna shot Friday

Woke up this morning with a splitting headache that has been with me all day.
Took the dog to the vet, came home, and spent the entire day asleep in bed.
Just got up after six hours, headache is still there but not as bad.

Yeah, joints are a little stiff.

18. Tylenol is a wonderful drug

when you feel like you've been trampled by a herd of something very large and determined. You don't really want to take NSAIDs because the inflammation is part of the process of developing a long term immunity Tylenol kills the pain without interfering with the immune response, which is what is making you feel like shit.

21. In reality,

we still know precious little about this virus................

There were a ton of people in the 1918 pandemic who didn't catch the virus that were exposed.

It was suggested that those particular people had some how been exposed to a flu virus in their lives that had prepared their bodies to be resistant to the pandemic virus.......

They may find that that is the case with this Covid Virus..........

It would make sense, given that many people have become really sick or died from their exposure to this virus and a majority had few or no effects..............

23. Very happy for you that you've had your second shot.

In two weeks, you'll be more or less golden.

These anecdotes are not making me eager for my second, though.

24. You did more than I did when the vaccine hit me.

I have painful tendonitis which Iíve learned to deal with so I can usually move around and do some things, but after the vaccine I was in way too much pain, and all I could do was take naps.

Iím not taking naps every day anymore but I still canít deal with moving around or doing things. I feel too tired, and my tendonitis flares up when I move. Just walking to get my Mail is too painful. Forget about dragging the vacuum cleaner around or cleaning anything up. The kitchen awaits.

25. It's your wonderful immune system

fighting off what it thinks is a viral infection. Tylenol pm and a good night's sleep are great, or whatever you like for pain/fever and sleep. I felt fantastic the next day.

Good luck

27. I'm lucky my job allows penalty-free "vaccine time."

Got my first Pfizer jab on Tuesday; so utterly sensation-free that I became paranoid that the nurse administering the shot might be up to no good. But Wednesday morning I woke up knowing better, with the injection site absolutely screaming NO TOUCHY! at me every time I moved. So I took a day off to wear an ice pack and sit around going, "urrrrrrrrr."

Now I'm really looking forward to my second shot! Ha! Still better than COVID itself, of course.

28. I saw my primary care doctor for a check up and he told me

what to expect when I get my second shot at the end of May. He said the second one is the one that nails you. He explained that the first shot gets your body ready and the second is the virus. He said he felt like you for a day or so.

30. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT, KIDDOS !!!

I'm up for a minute to get some bread and water and tylenol, then it's right back to bed.

Head feels better, but the body aches are still in charge.

31. I toughed it out from 12 hours to 30 hours after the 2nd Moderna shot.

Seriously bad headache, mild fever, body aches, a little nausea, massive fatigue, unable to sleep, didn't want to eat, or even drink much because of the nausea.

I was all about letting my immune system have at it. At 36 hours I really felt like it was over, and was just tired with a headache. Ate a bunch of food. Anti-inflammitories are apparently a no-no for immune response so I took a single tylenol, and slept really solid the second night.

Nothing left but a wee bit of dizziness.

I cannot help but imagine what a real COVID19 infection would do compared to this. A real infection would be a virus replicating at exponential rates. This mRNA shot was just a fixed amount of protein spikes...

32. I had my 2nd shot last Wed. I was fine on day one, but day two...

After I went for a walk, I passed out when I got back home. Had me one of those deep sleeps for 6 hours in the middle of the day. Woke up felt like crap. Got something to eat and started feeling better.

Next day, I was back to normal.
