2pm-10pm I felt absolutely normal
10pm-2am sudden onset terrible cold fever, shivering uncontrollably in bed even with the heating on and inside a winter sleeping bag under my duvet, at one point could barely move
2am-6am less terrible hot fever, crazy headache, couldn't sit still, a bit odd
8am-present pounding headache and lethargy mostly abetted by 500mg paracetamol every 5hrs
Almost a carbon copy of my symptoms after having my first AZ jab yesterday afternoon. I’m 51.
I actually rang 111 as I thought I was having some kind of seizure, the shaking was so bad. The nurse I spoke to told me to take paracetamol and just put light clothing on as I had put several thick layers on. After about 30 minutes the paracetamol brought the shaking under control, which was a massive relief. It’s 5 pm now and I no longer have a temperature. This was nothing like having flu, much more violent.
My advice to anyone having the AZ jab is to have paracetamol and a thermometer to hand. And drink plenty of water.
