  1. Apologies. I genuinely didn't see it. Sorry @AThirdWay and thank you @MonsieurCopperCrutch No, I can't see anything else that would trigger it. Wish I could as that would help find a solution. From the ZOE app I can see today others with similar symptoms to my own.They added a section I'd not noticed before with questions for the team. People with side effects posting questions there. In particular these intense new head pains. I joined an online migraine group to find others new there with the intense week after week head pains after the vaccine.
  2. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now so will not say much more. t's been a bad 10 years or so with serious stuff. That is probably why this feels as if it could be more serious than a possible migraine. Then again it could be really simple if I could get someone to look at it. Thank you for your kindness and remembering.
  3. Hindsight is fabulous and I agree with your evaluation. There is something else that is becoming more relevant as time goes on, Being able to buy a home, that is comfortable to live in and near jobs that will pay for it. Even if we decide that houses are overpriced but we need to buy. We have moved twice now once we made the decision to leave London. The first ended in redundancy and no other work available that we could find. The second try ended in being strung along and then an attempt by the seller to force us into paying more - a lot more (it did eventually sell but not at the
  4. Thank you for the Science Direct link. I never imagined that this existed. Will read it again. Very interesting.
  5. Thank you. A few things are looking like an allergy. Fortunately for me that part only lasted for the first few weeks (the bad problems swallowing). My throat is back to normal again. My glands are still swollen. On my second visit to A&E no one touched me again or looked in my throat. I've tried to talk to my GP and find out who locally in my area deals with this. No one. I had my phone call with him now and he doesn't think I should have the 2nd before this "all calms down". If I want to see an Immunologist or a Neurologist he says that the waiting list will be long. It's n
  6. Thank you Will for asking. I didn't want to bore anyone with the details This was the list I wrote to report the first Yellow card (minus a few really embarrassing things) New severe headache, stiff neck, light and noise intolerance (sets off vomiting and headache increases). Headache thumping, piercing. Painful scalp, ears and teeth. Non stop and not controlled by OTC drugs. Codeine can knock me out but pain wakes me up Dead, numb legs (unable to stand on the day after the vaccine) followed by weak limbs, no stamina. When could stand and tried to walk like dragging weights. Fa
  7. Just an update to say what has happened since then. I'm still suffering the strange, unexpected reaction(s) to the AZ vaccine. Since then I have tried different angles to try and tackle this problem. My GP clinic still remains as a centre for the Vaccine rollout. Appointments are very rare. There are no home visits for bed bound or the elderly who cannot leave their home. No district nurse visits. All appointments are by phone but often after a triage by a nurse and then another long wait to talk to a doctor (i.e. 5 -10 days ). I've tried requesting appointments to see or talk to m
  8. I can see why a trainee would be useful to the EA's around here (Bucks and Beds). There seem to be more properties advertised with sitting tenants. These are not going "under offer". Very little is filtering through to LR and no sign of removal vans or anything happening around me. The EA's need someone to field all the phone calls, handle all the no-hopers (like the LLs trying to sell up) and everything else that will not end in a commission. Might be different elsewhere of course.
  9. Or does Sale Volumes mean sales that translate into Land registry maybe? I'm not seeing a decrease into properties coming onto the market in my search of specific areas of Bucks and Beds. They are going under off (which takes the figure of properties "for sale" down) but are they going to translate into appearing as a completed sale anywhere. The last time this happened they didn't.
  10. This sounds similar to the reaction I had to the AZ vaccine. Now in It's 5th week for me but getting better in some ways thankfully. The burning pain in the bones which was a week at It's worse and made it impossible to sleep until codeine from A&E knocked me out, the the dead leg which was numb and I could not stand on. Totally unexpected and so many other things. The severe throbbing headache (with light and sound intolerance meaning I have been living in a darkened room) is responding to migraine meds. Also that strange stabbing pain in the lower abdomen. I've never had a m
  11. I have had rapid responses published on the online BMJ previously (as a patient) with no need to pay to join or buy a subscription. Not sure how much checking they do. There is a Neurologist (now in private practise) I know of making all sorts if claims online previously but has gone quiet. Not the same name. This has more if the sound and feel of a USA/Canada anti-vaccine anti lock down group. As some of you may know (from another thread) I had a severe reaction to the Astra Zeneca vaccine. I have other health issues and patients in the different groups I belong to have been
  12. Thank you. I asked to speak to the Practice Manager last Tuesday (the 30th) and was told that they were not taking calls and were refusing to deal with complaints at all. Asked to leave a message for them to call me anyway and that's gone unanswered. I also tried PALS at the hospital I was seen at (A&E) and raised a complaint with them on Wednesday. They were supposed to be finding out which medical team I should be seeing and calling me back that day. Didn't happen and a call to them again today has gone unreturned. PALS told be to ring 111. Which I did. They told me the
  13. No this is unusual and started when the mass vaccine program began there. Losing the facility to book an appointment online was the first hint. They added a terrible front end to the website that is like long and complicated form which is supposed to be responded to by the clinic instead. The waits of up to a hour to get through on the phone which was everyday. I was typically 16 on the Q. It is as if the clinic has been taken over to do the vaccine and all the normal NHS care been farmed out to a call centre who are not trained one nurse to deal with Covid queries and one duty G
  14. Sorry not to have replied. I didn't know what to say. I was too weak, sick and in pain to think at times After 2 visits to A&E. One to a locum after hours GP and then spending a day in a hospital ward I am making progress. Accused of being an Anti-vaxer and imaging my symptoms. Discovered A&E did not know about the rare blood clotting problem being reported i.e. advising people with certain problems such as headaches for more than 4 days to seek medical help. It wasn't the problem I had but it was useful in getting treatment on the end as the GP insisted they look at my symp
  15. Care to show some examples of these homes fit for a family and in an area for work ? We have moved twice now and in search of a home with a job. The first move resulted in redundancy and no jobs in that area. The second resulted in prices moving more quickly than we could save,. It's the whole of the South East of England (+) we need to know this area with enough homes for thousands and the jobs there to support them.
