I had the Oxford jab two Saturdays ago. I woke up a few times in the night after either really hot or freezing cold then got a cracking headache about 3.00pm on Sunday (24 hours after the jab). I took some Ibuprofen and then another dose before bed then slept right through (apart from a wee at about 4.00am) and woke up fine the next day.Had the Oxford jab yesterday. Very efficient and quick process in my local leisure centre. Some will have been following the brew off threa, so will be aware that I would be drinking four pints of DIPA. I am not sure whether it was the drink but towards the end of the session I started getting s terrible headache and chills. I put it down to being in front of a screen day and night, plus the broken sound and flashing images of a zoom call.
I decided to call it a night and tidied the empty bottles and made my way upstairs. By the time I got upstairs I was frozen. I had never experienced cold like it. I cranked the heating up, put numerous layers on and several blankets on the bed. I was shivering so much I struggled to breath and my body was ache all over. I was drifting in and out of sleep but kept bring woken by the cold and vivid dreams. I regularly had the same dream as a child and I was having them again. About 3am I woke covered in sweet, I was boiling hot. I went into the bathroom thinking I was going to be sick. My wife went to get my a glass of water and as she came back in I collapsed, I was overheating. I convinced her not to call a ambulance and that I will be ok. We managed to bring my temperature down and back to bed. Not that I had much sleep, more dreams and constant aches, hot one minute,.cold the next. Since about lunch time I have been a lot better, if not a little tired.
In hindsight I shouldn't have drank. Never experienced anything like it. Like watching the cold chicken scene from transpotting
I hope all those idiots get a huge fine.Just had my first jab - Oxford/AstraZeneca. Really smooth operation at a local RBS office building near me that had been volunteered or commandeered for the purpose. Settling in with expectations of side effects now, but I’ll take that any day.
In other news the one bedroom AirBnB flat in out stairwell decided that the rules didn’t apply to them and had a party last night. Counted 10 people out when the police came to break it up . I’ll be glad when more people are vaccinated and we can do that kind of thing again, in the meantime f**k-em.
