I am currently struggling with the decision of when to take up the covid vaccine. I have now been invited but I am currently undermedicated and iron deficient and have some major symptoms including constant thrumming body with some palpitations, extreme fatigue and extreme lightheadedness - I cannot sit/stand up for long and only in short bursts, cannot climb stairs on my own and have to spend all day laying down. My body is extremely sensitive and I cannot handle even small mental of physical stress at all without my body going haywire and symptoms worsening for days after. I have been like this over a year and though improving my body cannot handle more than minuscule increases in thyroid medication so I am getting there slowly.
I am concerned that the potential vaccine side effects may affect me strongly and that the added strain on my body might impact on my incredibly slow progress. In my position would you wait until I’m feeling better to take the vaccine or do you think I’m being overly worried?
Any advice much appreciated!
