Delayed Allergies

Okay, so apparently with the Moderna vaccine, there’re people who’ve had delayed allergic reactions about 8 days after the injection. Shortness of breath, hives, not life threatening but very concerning-looking symptoms. So guess who’s got it? No, not me; my husband did. Well, I had some delayed reactions too but it’s just a recurring sore arm 8 days after the first shot, and some nausea and a single case of bad diarrhea 8 days after the second shot. My husband, however, has developed hives all over his legs. His right thigh is super swollen, and he’s had shortness of breath a couple of days ago. Today is the 10th day after his second shot. Yeah, isn’t it kick ass to be the “less than 20 people out of millions” who’s had this happened to?

He’s alright. He’s no longer experiencing shortness of breath, and he said it’s just swollen but not too horrible like that time when he had the allergic reaction to Dramamine. That rash lasted weeks, and I was reading up and it said the Moderna reactions last an average of 5 days, but could be up to 21 days. I’ve seen pictures and his is not nearly as bad as those ones. So hopefully his will go away after a week. If it gets worse tomorrow maybe I’ll schedule an appointment with our doctor, but I doubt they’ll do anything because, well, it’s obviously Moderna’s fault, and the papers that studied those all said it’s going to go away on it’s own and is not life threatening so, might as well just wait and save the money.

(I’m perfectly fine now, btw, and will be fully vaccinated by tomorrow. Can’t wait.)
