    Getting a booster jab this week, worried about lymph nodes. Your experiences?

    I have lymph node anxiety and I'm getting the Pfizer booster jab this week and I have some anxiety about the symptoms I could get, mostly lymph node related. Having had swollen lymph nodes for years has affected me and I'm always a bit on edge about finding new swellings. I had the AstraZeneca one previously and had NO side effects, not one, so I'm asking of others here have had Pfizer after Astra and had no symptoms. Or if anyone that had no symptoms after their first two and no symptoms after the booster as well.

    I've had 3 Pfizer jabs. Only symptom has been local to injection site - arm ache. In my experience, people who've had AZ have had worse side effects.

    That's how it was with my AZ jabs but I saw mentioned that a Pfizer booster on top of AZ can trigger a bigger response. I'm mostly worried about my lymph nodes cause I always get a panic whenever I feel my nodes.
    Anyone here that has had that mix and didn't feel anything?

    We had the Pfizer jabs. I was fine other than some yuck feeling after all three jabs. My wife has some node pain under her arm for a day or so after the booster but it resolved. No biggie

    I had my booster, Pfizer. I did not experience any node swelling with first two doses, but did have it after the booster, under my armpit in the arm I received the injection in. It was a little tender and swollen for about two-three days and then went away. Wasn’t any big deal, as I knew the cause - so it didn’t stress me out at all. It’s a pretty common short term side effect.

    My concern is that IF a node swells up that it'll be a new node and it wont go down. I have had swellings for a decade and a half now in my armpit and groin but getting new ones would really freak me out!

    oh I have no idea. It was sore so I didn’t poke at it lol. I just let it be and the swelling and tenderness was gone within a couple days.
