Reactions from pneumonia vaccine


Has anyone over 65 had there first sign symptoms show upon there feet and legs after getting a pneumonia vaccine shot, I did five minute after the shot pausing nerve pain shot up my leg from my toes. It stopped and I never thought anything about it until four weeks later numbness and tingling, heat and other symptoms showed up and have remained from waistline to bottom of feet.

North5, so sorry to hear of this. We have enough stuff going on without adding to the pot. I had my shot without any issues. Have you talked with your neurologist? Hope you get this worked out.

Yes it was on my question list when I first meet with my. neuro. My impression is the neuro is not ithat interested in the cause as much as the testing to get to the dx.

Then after that; getting MS treatment going.

I have to agree with them because you can't go back and undo what brought on our MS....



I had vaccine on Jan 9. I developed a rash around the injection site that disappeared within a couple of days. No other affects.


North5, it's Fancy1959. I am sorry to hear of your sudden onset of your MS symptoms immediately after receiving you pneumonia vaccine. I got the regular pneumonia shot when I was around 53 and the newer pneumonia shot when I was 56. I did not suffer any reaction to either vaccine. I wish there was something I could say or do to help. keep us informed and keep your chin up.


I've had both PV13 and PV23 w/o incident

What do your docs think?

Hope you feel better soon 💐


We seem to be thrown into a state of not being sure how we will react as far as medicines and immunuzations go. I guess we just keep trying to sort out what works or doesn't for the majority of us and then do a lot of praying! That is true with those who don't have MS, but maybe moreso for those of us with it.

I hope you feel better quickly, and can sort out what happened. Thanks for sharing your experience.

I had the PV23 a little over a year ago and the PV13 this past fall. I am 66, almost 67 Other than a little soreness at the injection site I had no reaction but I am not on any DMTs and I wonder if that would make a differeence???


No, I have had numerous pneumonia shots without any new or worsening MS symptoms, I am 68 yrs. I spent the first 20+ yrs not getting the shot for fear of repercussions and I had those symptoms you have mentioned without help of the shot...sorry.
