People who experienced rare long-term adverse events after COVID-19 vaccination often had neurologic symptoms, survey data showed.

Among 241 people who self-reported a post-vaccination syndrome (PVS), the five most common symptoms were exercise intolerance (71%), excessive fatigue (69%), numbness (63%), brain fog (63%), and neuropathy (63%), reported Harlan Krumholz, MD, of Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, and co-authors in a paper posted on the preprint server medRxiv. The paper has not been peer-reviewed.

"The study is the largest investigation of the experience of people reporting a chronic, debilitating condition that began soon after a COVID-19 vaccination," Krumholz told MedPage Today.

"It raises awareness about what these individuals are experiencing and points attention to the need for more studies to understand what is underlying this condition and how to relieve suffering," he continued. "These people are not anti-vaxxers—they were all vaccinated—but because of politics, many have had the experience of being dismissed and ignored." Head over to MedPage Today to read more about it.
