    I had a really bizarre and intense dream after my first covid jab, normally I don’t remember dreams but this was vivid, I kept waking up stressed and when I went back to sleep the dream carried on. It was loosely based on the program I’d been watching that afternoon, some American political drama so not even anything particularly exciting.

    I’m starting to think the two episodes of The walking dead I’ve watched this evening probably weren’t a good idea considering I had my second jab this afternoon. :facepalm:

    Had second jab yesterday, thought I'd got away with it as felt just mildly headachey (is that a word) last night but feeling proper ropey this morning.

    Me too, the first one put me to bed for 3 days.

    I woke up alright ish but headache, nausea and dizziness has properly kicked in now. Not quite as bad as last one though, I’ve managed to get up at least.

    On a more positive note, no zombie attacks in the night! A vey interrupted sleep but no idea what I was dreaming about!

    Hope you feel better soon @Bob and @Trumpet

    I was perfectly ok with my first Pfizer , but the 2nd one last week affected me more. Was ok the first 12 hours after , then a horrendous next 12 hours in bed with aching head, shoulders & neck, and freezing cold. Whacked paracetamol down me and wrapped up with a hot water bottle. Then just my arm aching for a couple of days after that. Feel great again now though :)

    Hope you both feel better soon @Trumpet & @Bob, I had a headache, fever & aches after my 2nd Jab last week, but nowhere near as bad as the first one, and it only lasted a day.


    Anyone have any other strange reactions? I'm sure the jab has caused me to dislike cheese! Before the jab my favourite snack were cheese based, cheese & crackers, cheese board instead of sweet pudding, cheese & chive dip with crisps etc, now the thought of cheese turns my tummy, all I can think of is a big glob of fat in my mouth, and if anyone mentions cheese I feel slightly sick.... Anyone else weird or just me?

    Had both jabs, no reaction from either of them, not even a dull ache where the injection was.

    I came back from my jab craving pancakes with lemon and sugar , and got the frying pan out as soon as I got in the house. Probably just me being my normal greedy self though :lol: and must say they tasted delicious :D


    Strangely enough I never used to like cheese. Infact even the thought of it used to make me feel sick. Then one day after recovering from really bad flu, we went to The Trumpet (The Radford ) for a darts match and they had cheese sandwiches on. I tried one, couldn't taste it , but liked cheese ever since.

    An individual liking an item of food after sampling it first at The Trumpet, must be quite a unique event.

    Has a stop been put on local areas offering jabs to below 40s? The Eventbrite booking system has been running a couple of years below the NHS system for a while now so when the NHS went down to 40 last week I thought locally it might reduce further, but they're both sat at 40 now. I don't really see the point of local GPs offering a separate booking system if the exact same restrictions apply.

    I thought it would drop down as well for the GPs, I'm keeping an eye on it as I'd like OH to get it before we go away next week, it's not sold out on Saturday so I'm surprised they haven't reduced it.

    Was it actually cheese on that Trumpet/Radford Bank sandwich?

    Had my second jab this morning and now have muffled hearing and a bit of a sore right ear but nothing worse so far.

    It may also be a side effect of my diabetes tablets which the specialist increased the dosage earlier this week and can have similar side effects to the jab.

    Very efficient and slick process at the Showground once again.

    I felt horrible after my first jab . I also developed blisters around the injection site. Had horrible spasms down my arm for the first two days but I think they may have been I was injected really high up, like on my shoulder. Maybe it was because I’m so short , nurse just couldn’t bend down low enough :mystery::P

    I had my second one this morning at the showground and have since felt very tired, but that's nothing unusual.

    Apparently there is going to be an announcement today that under 40s will not receive the AstraZeneca. So I'm assuming they are holding back for that. We will see I guess.
