CIDP and the Covid Vaccine

Hello! I started with toe numbness over two years ago and the numbness progressed up my left leg. I had three EMGs(also done on hand)but the neurologist said there was no nerve injury(last EMG five months ago). I had the first Pfizer March 14. When I got the jab I felt tingling down my spine and as if a shock went through my body(no anaphylaxis though). I am a US citizen in Canada and the second jab is scheduled July 14(longer between time in Canada). Since the first jab, both legs have become heavy and stiff and the hands feel as if no circulation. I am concerned about the second shot. Whether I have actually CIDP or another neurological problem (so difficult to diagnose CIDP) I am concerned about the second shot because the first one exacerbated my initial symptoms and added new ones.

Hello @francescazama and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for sharing your experience and your concerns going into your second vaccine. Did you have CIPD to begin with or did you first experience symptoms after the first vaccine?
