How long have folks suffered from 2nd covid jab side effects? I had my 2nd Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday and it seems to have triggered a flare of RA, but for the first 48hours I felt like I had been flattened by a steam roller. I tried a 20 minute dog walk today which left me needing a nap under a blanket. My 91 year old mum was vaccinated at the same time, she felt slightly nauseous for about 24 hours then bounced straight back.
The doc warned me that 2nd dose side effects were often worse, he wasn't wrong!!!!! Having said that, I would do it again for the protection it offers. I heard a doc on tv talking about some research in America suggesting side effects were worse in people with auto immune diseases.
