Trigeminal Neuralgia & Covid-19 shots

Posted by dandl48 Dave @dandl48, Mar 5 9:51am

My wife suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia and is concerned that having it would stop her from getting the Covid shot since she has read that with the Pizer shot people with Neurological disorders are advised not to get the injection. Thoughts?

Hi, Dave. I have TN (dormant at this point), and had the C-19 vax last month without any related issues. I was given the Moderna vaccine, but haven't heard anything linking the Pfizer (or J&J) shot with TN.

Suggest you do the research, and if you find any connection to TN with a particular vax, avoid registering your wife for it, and simply choose one of the others. Fortunately, she has options which are becoming more and more available.

Good luck!
