Moderna Vaccine Auto Immune Responses 10 months 2 weeks ago #70817

About three days after my first shot I got a Thrush like tongue. It has still not been able to be diagnosed. The tongue has white on it and hurts. About two days after the second shot I got angioedema in my hands and on both legs and ankles. The tongue problem and swelling remain two weeks after the second shot. My doctor told me they were both immune reactions to the shots. My immune system attacked the wrong things. I do not respond to Prednisone and need to wait these things out. Antihistamines did nothing. I have autoimmune thrombocytopenia. I didn't expect this. I am 74 years old.

EdwardJacob- I have heard of a similar case of swelling. My friend who has psoriatic arthritis got the Pfizer vaccine recently and her hands swelled up, plus joint stiffness and pain in her hands. That was after the first dose. Her rheumatologist told her that people with rheumatic disorders/rheumatism sometimes get swelling of the hands and/or feet after vaccines. She said it was a reaction to one of the ingredients in the vaccine. Thats all I know, but perhaps if you dig deeper you'll find answers to what is happening.

Do you have any information how long the swelling lasted? My hand swelling only lasted 2 days. The lower legs and ankles are still swollen after more than 2 weeks. I have auto immune thrombocytopenia. My doctor said auto immune patients can react to the vaccine by attacking the wrong thing. Thank you.

A Small Number of People Developed This Rare Blood Disorder After Getting a COVID Vaccine—Here's What to Know

The above is a piece of information re the same subject. Not sure if it's subject to a certain type of vaccine or it's a systematic risk for ITP patients.

Thank you for your response. The URL worked. I have an appointment with an ENT for my mouth swelling. It is unlike anyone around here has ever seen and I have had it for 2 months. I guess I can live with the leg swelling. Neither Prednisone nor antihistamines have done anything. And so it goes.....
