Peripheral Neuropathy following covid injection

After receiving the 1st vaccine, within a week, my right hand went numb, and tingling followed by the side of my face and my toe on the same side,

I went to a/e, thinking it was stress,or maybe a stroke.

Doctor came to the conclusion it was stress and I wasn’t having a stroke.

It is now 3 weeks later, and my right thumb is totally numb, it feels dead. I have never ever had anything like this in my life, and is a real worry now as I am wondering  if the numbness is ever going to go away.

Also my husband after his covid jab, has since developed shingles,

He has had the in the past, but there was no sign of it occurring at all, until after he had the vaccine.

I don’t know if any one has read the article written by  Eric Clapton, the artist from the UK. Who suffered what he has put down to having the vaccine a form of neuropathy, came on after his first jab, but decided to still go ahead with the second, which he now blames the covid jabs for his now neuropathy health problems

His description of his side effects sounded just what I have experienced,

Fortunately I read the article the same day my husband and  I were booked to have second covid jab

Needless to say we didn’t have it

Other symptoms have been dizzyness, brain fog, fatigue.

It is a real concern now about both our health


Symptoms started a week after vaccine and are gradually getting worse, now constantly experiencing: lips are numb and tingling all the time, swelling in gums behind lips, right side – right nostril goes numb, side of face feels numb, Thumb totally numb, feels dead, fingers tingle at times, shooting pain in various toes at any time. Suffering brain fog – disorientated, difficulty finding words and communicating, fatigue – don’t want to get up, confusion, feeling dizzy and unsteady on feet, headaches.

Rash – below clavicle – still there, petechial rash

Had diarrhoea, doesn’t feel like eating most of the time. Lost appetite.

Shingles medicine – Lovir – didn’t help, made me feel sick, doctor has since decided it was not shingles

After 4th visit to GP with associated above symptoms, GP as of 15/06/21 has give diagnosis of Peripheral Neuropathy, referred to neurologist, also for further blood tests and x-rays, doctor has acknowledged the likelihood that this is all related to adverse effects of the vaccine

we have submitted a CARM report: AEF1005596
