First Dose Vax
April 30, 2021

I got the Pfizer shot and I must say, I never thought I'd experience side effects this early with just the first dose. Then again, my allergies and sinus have been a thing since the start of the week, so I'm not too clear on all side effects I experienced.

However, I experienced the mouth and tongue tingling and some itchiness, similar to the reaction most people who are allergic to seafood describe. I don't have 'swelling' skin, but my top lip had that numb feeling to it for a bit, my sinuses did too. In fact, the top half of my mouth felt a little numb, but it's completely gone now.

It was very very windy today which meant pollen and all that good stuff was in the air, so the itchiness of my face could be a result of that since I didn't take any allergy meds. Anyway, I felt feverish and sleepy as well, but can't remember if I was a little dizzy. Again, my active sinuses are good for that, so who knows if it was a side effect or not. Oh, and I felt nauseated but once more, yesterday I ate at 7 and didn't eat again until 5 that afternoon, so it could be gas and not the vax. I'm really helpful, aren't I? xD

All in all and so far, I'm feeling "normal", but I heard the second dose can take you down even harder. I'm due in 3 weeks, and honestly, I don't know if I'll be ready.
