Had my Jab on the 10th Feb for other underlying issues, Zero side effects. I had the Pfizer version. Didn't affect my headaches either.

Hi All

 

Just found OUCH & thought I'd sign up to share my experience. Around 20 years ago (after many years of suffering) I was diagnosed with cluster headaches. They'd reoccur every year for around a month (usually in August). A couple of years after the diagnosis they suddenly stopped and haven't been back since...until nearly 3 weeks ago on the night of my AstraZeneca jab. Since then, I've had one every evening (and sometimes another in the morning).

 

After speaking to 111, I went to A&E on Sunday. I've been prescribed sumatriptan (50mg) and co-dydramol to "ride it out" (neither seem to be helping much TBH). FWIW, I don't think I'm the only one either eg:

Heopfully it's a one off cluser that won't last *too* much longer Sad

 

Cheers

I have had both my Covid vaccines (Astra Zenica) and had no ill effects in headaches.
