Write-up: Patient in clinic for chief complaint of possible side effect of the covid vaccine which she received yesterday. She states that she woke up at 0200 with chest tightness, achyness and headache. She rates the discomfort 7/10 last night and improved now to 5/10. She denies any worsening with any type of exertion and states that she can do simple things like take a shower, walk across the room, down the street or even stairs without any worsening. She denies any SOB or chest pain--just feels tight. Doesn''t feel like she can''t get a full breath or get the air out of her lungs either. She received her first of two doses of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday (4:23pm) and had no difficulty with the injection itself and then 9.5 hours later woke up from sleep with this chest tightness as well as achyness and headache. �She states that she had the exact same symptoms when she had positive covid test back in August of this year with the addition of fatigue which lasted for 5 days. At that time it was not felt necessary to do any further testing nor treat with steroids according to cardiology. She does have history of LV non-compaction cardiomyopathy and her last visit with cardiology was about 2 years ago and she had a normal EKG and echo only showed "mild LV non compaction at the apex" at that time. He did not need to see her again until she is 18 unless she has problems. She states that she generally does very well and other than this tightness she does not have any other significant symptoms.
