I am a 19-year-old male. And I have been experiencing muscle twitching in my hands and legs for more than three months. And I also have occasional chest pains. My feet are too cold even when I am in a hot shower. I had my Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine 16 days ago.
I read about a rare autoimmune syndrome (GBS), and I am really worried.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thank you for the query.
Kindly answer me the following to help you better;
1) Do you have any weight loss?
2) Do you have weakness in the hands and feet?
3) Do you have difficulty in breathing?
I suggest you do ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), CRP (C-reactive protein), nerve conduction study, and electromyography. Meanwhile, you can take tablet Pregabalin 75 mg once daily and vitamin B complex once daily for ten days.
Thanks for the reply.
I have had fasciculations for three to four months. And yes, I lost about 5 to 6 kg. But I was on a diet and going to the gym almost every day, so it was on purpose.
About the weakness, I have periodic muscle pain in my leg and arm. I can lift heavy things without any issues. And no breathing issues.
Shall I delay the tests that you have mentioned?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Yes, it is acceptable to delay the test if the present condition is post-vaccination neuropathy. But for the fasciculations, you need to undergo nerve conduction study and electromyography as soon as possible.
