Patients Long COVID

We should all follow Government advice, and adhere to the rules.
I've had my first jab, Oxford Astra Zeneca, felt fine until mid evening. A headache started and got slowly worse, went to bed at 01.00 hrs. straight to sleep. 04.00 hrs shaking woke my wife and she woke me. Just a gentle shake at first then OMG. my wife sat on my stomach and held my arms down so that I couldn't hurt myself. This lasted for 40 minutes, then as quick as it arrived it went. I was at 'sixes and sevens' until early evening that day, all well since.
If you want to do as much as you can to save lives then we should ALL wear a 'mask' or 'face shield' and keep our distance. This blessed virus is here to stay for who knows how long? We have to rely on the 'boffins' to get it right so that we can fight off this virus, and hopefully keep it under control. We've lived with the flu for years so now we have a new flu, the Covid virus, we'll fight that just the same.
Everyone must THINK POSITIVE and stop moaning. GET ON WITH IT. It's here to STAY

@richard0804 ... Hope you're feeling a bit better now after the first vaccination... Sounds like you had very similar side effects that a friend of mine had when she had the Astra Zeneca one too. She had a sore arm initially, then the headache and chills for 2 days. After that, she had the 'sniffles' which we put down to either a mild cold or the after-effects.
It's amazing how side effects affect us all so differently.

I will also continue to wear the mask and follow the regulations even after the 2nd jab. My husband is 84 with COPD, Asthma, Hypothyroidism and past cancer patient. I will continue to protect him until every one is vaccinated,

Well the good news is the Flu has been virtually killed off this year due our Covid procedures. This killer disease in the UK kills between 5000 to 30000 people each year and has been stopped in its tracks. So is this an indicator of pressures for us to continue with some policies that is reducing other medical issues. Even MRSA has been reduced massively in hospitals as staff conform to higher standards of hygene. Sadly the NHS ignored many illnesses and we now have 150000 dying of cancer etc., just one example. So winning and loosing at the same time but clearly positive factors to us carrying on with our hygene procedures and at times of the year maybe opting for masks. But I feel this not the case for me as I will be glad to see all the Covid hype well and truly gone and we return to normal soon, stay safe!

I agree with everyone who's previously commented. I know masks are hard, but I'll continue to wear them until we truly know they pandemic is "over". I'm sure we'll never be truly finished with COVID-19 or at least it will take many years until we're rid of it with the new strains that are out there.
I know in Asia people often wore masks before all of this anyway when sick to protect others and I still like that idea. So maybe in the future when this is all "over" people will wear them when they have the sniffles to protect others. I think I'd do that.
