Laboratory Data


On 01/07/2021 I woke up at 0300am with chills, headache, body aches, joint pain, fever of 101.
2 and swollen left axillary lymph nodes.
I took Tylenol and Benadryl and it relieved the fever/headache/body aches/joint pain, however the lymph nodes in my left axillary remained swollen.
I continue to take Tylenol for the fever/body aches/pains without relief for the swollen and painful axillary lymph nodes.
Warm compresses do help to relieve the pain temporarily but they remain painfully swollen.
On 01/08/21 I called my doctors office to ask if it was normal to experience such painfully swollen axillary lymph nodes to which they stated ?we don?t know, it is too soon for us to tell what?s normal and what isn?t normal right now.
? They did not offer any suggestions to relieve the pain or swelling.
The morning of 01/09/2021 , I called Employee Health at my hospital (my place of work and also where I received the vaccine) and they also stated they didn?t know if this was a normal reaction due to the newness of the vaccine.
A couple hours later, employee health emailed me a link to the VAERS reporting website and asked me to file a report.
