(CBS4) As more people get the vaccination, doctors are learning about new and unusual side effects. CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Heneda He said they were linked to a response from the body’s immune system during the weekly question-and-answer session Denver CBSN.
He explained, “We all know the usual things, which are arm pains, some aches and pains, and fatigue.” “Fortunately, severe side effects are very uncommon, perhaps one-tenth of one percent of all millions of vaccines that have been administered.”
Dr. Hunaydah said that there is a pattern beginning to emerge of what he called some really strange side effects that could be explained but could not be expected.
“It includes things like the“ Moderna arm ”that should be called the“ COVID arm, ”which was first seen in people who received the Moderna vaccine but is now available in all areas with all vaccines.
“What happens here about five to seven days after you vaccinated, you get this rash and it can fall off your entire arm, the arm that was vaccinated in. It’s an itchy rash and you think, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on here?’ It’s really just a delayed reaction from your immune system. “
Dr. Hounida says that it will disappear on its own within five to seven days.
He also addressed the “nickel mouth” or “metallic mouth”.
“People, literally within two minutes of getting their vaccinations for a day or so, just taste like they have a lot of coins in their mouths, a really metallic taste.”
It also affects the taste of foods and drinks, and is again believed to be a response to the immune system.
Lucid dreams, especially those related to space, have also been reported as a side effect. These include dreams of “back to the future” full of hovercraft and flying cars.
“Flying to the moon, raising the flag on the moon. Even someone comes out and takes Abraham Lincoln to get a Big Mac and the staff wants him to sign the bills. We really think it has something to do with the immune response. It’s temporary.”
Dr. Hunaida said he believes the response to the vaccine may interrupt sleep cycles, especially the REM cycle we are dreaming of.
He also said that anyone who has had filler injections, as is their lips, should be aware of the possibility of swelling after a vaccination.
“I think the bottom line is, if you have anything strange going on, the most important thing you should know is that you are not alone and that they are generally not a major concern. Certainly if you have done something unusual and are concerned about it, talk to your doctor for more information.” .
