Write-up: Right sided jaw pain started 12/22/20 in the am progressed through the evening. When I woke up I had numbness and weakness in the right of my tongue which I quickly realized included the right portion of my face. Included tongue was numb and I couldn''t move it. An Er trip and CT scan confirmed it was Bells Palsy. Today, My symptoms continue. Top of my head all the way to the way to bottom of neck is experiencing paralysis. Can move tongue now and it''s partly numb but it''s cooperating a bit more now. Nerve pain has worsened all over all the right side of face. Feels like someone has kicked face and I have a deep bruise. It''s a deep ache. Nothing will take away the ache away. My eye doesn''t lubricate like it should. So I have to either manually close it and wet it manually or tape it closed.

Write-up: The morning after I received the shot in my right arm, I woke up and jumped out of bed to turn off my alarm. My right leg buckled and completely gave out. It felt like there was not a muscle or bone in the leg. I melted down on top of my leg, twisting my ankle and my knee. I ended up with my knee twisted behind me as I hit the floor and my nightstand. I don''t know if you would call it muscle fatigue or weakness, it felt like muscle paralysis, but it only lasted less than a minute before it was gone, however, the damage was already done. I hurt my knee very badly because I had no control over my leg muscles. I''ve never had anything like that happen before.

Medical history included had Covid back on the 4th of December. There were no concomitant medications. Physician stated he was wondering he just took your Pfizer Covid vaccination, the first one. He took it couple of days ago. He took it on the 30th of this month, two days ago. Physician further stated he developed the fever for all about 30 hours after the vaccination. Just because he developed the fever with the first one, it was like a 101.7 that was about 36 hours. So the question was just because he developed the fever with the first one, he was pretty sick, he meant he felt palsy, you know headache and all that it was like probably developed the same with the second one? Patient weight was maybe 125 pounds. When probed if vaccine was prescribed by any Physician, Physician stated he went himself. Causality by physician stated as "he think so". Lab work reported as He did not have the results yet. He just look a Covid screening test because he had Covid back on the 04Dec. So, he just took a Covid screening test. Treatment received included aspirin. The outcome of all events was unknown.; Sender''s Comments: The causal relationship between BNT162B2 and the event palsy cannot be excluded as the information available in this report is limited and does not allow a medically meaningful assessment.
