My Symptoms After Vaccination

MY SINOVAC JAB gave me these side effects after a couple of hours....

Hot flushes was felt, not the kind of fever I used to have.... my body just turned warmer than usual and it went off as soon as it came, nothing to be alarmed... 

The next day, I felt aches on my neck, collar bone and shoulders.... my chest was kind of congested, air flow was a bit difficult.  I was quite alarmed over the breathing which was not as normal as usual, I tried to take deep slow breaths as I thought it was due to anxiety attack again.  

After a week, I went back to my cardiologist, just a follow up visit since my hospital discharge.  He assured me that there is nothing wrong with my heart though my palpitations was a bit higher than normal in his clinic.  Who doesn't feel a bit anxious visiting the doctor?  Anyway.... he prescribed some medication for me.... 

It has been 13 days since my jab, I am still feeling not-so-normal as before yet though I can breathe normally now and my bone aches have subsided.... And to monitor myself at home, I bought a cheap-plug oximeter.... LOL...
My new toy I hold every now and then.... 
The first reading is oxygen level.... 
It should be around 90-100....
The second reading is the pulse rate.... 
Mine is always above 80 during the daytime...
And 70 plus when I really sit down and relax.... 
Before this vaccination, I never heard of this gadget...
Nowadays it is so commonly used....

  4. Yes, the doctors have been recommending to have one of these oximeters. I have been hearing that the worse your side effects are, that means the vaccine is really working. I hope you feel back to normal soon!

  5. Gosh. Stay healthy. Rest well. Only us know our own body well.

    2nd dose is even stronger. I did mine on Monday, so far okay. Get coconut juice and drink it after 2nd jab. It helps me. I dont feel anything other than sore arm and heatiness. Now it is 4th day, I am fine.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
