After 2-3 weeks, my first Pfizer COVID-19 shot seems to have set off my IBS-C related cramping 
which had long been dormant.  
 
Includes cramping after eating---at remote locations like legs, feet, and hands.
 
Also tingling in my right outer thigh (may be meralgia paresthetica).
 
Miralax helped with these.
 
Are these known side-effects?
 
My theory is that the shot somehow caused a greater tendency toward spasms in or near the colon, leading to the various effects.
 
I'd say this is worth investigating!

my husband and i both had the pfizer vaccine but we did not experience the cramping that you describe--in the legs, hands, feet etc. or tingling in the thigh.

 

maybe it affects some peeople but not others.  like they say YMMV... 


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

I'm not suggesting these are common effects.

My sister, who also has IBS, reported severe cramps after her second Moderna COVID-19 shot.
