Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

I was the happiest and in the best health of my life.

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

I am completely happy to 'be an experiment' if it will help others and myself. I would have done it all again IF our reactions would have been acknowledged and addressed. But not anymore. Now I can't trust the vax and can't get it again. I am now even more vulnerable to illness.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

It began with restless leg syndrome the night after my 2nd vax. That week I had intense body temperature changes and couldn't easily regulate it. Symptoms quickly increased and progressed to include joint and muscle pain and weakness in both my arms and legs, brain fog, dizziness (24/7 feeling of being drunk/hungover), fatigue, numbness and tingling in hands and feet, random feelings in my arms and legs such as a shock, a feeling if wet or cold, or warm feeling, depression, irritability, sensitive to touch, new food allergies/sensitivities, lingering sensations after touching something (hot, cold, vibrations), RLS, random muscle spasms, intense pms and irregular periods,etc. I also have blood pressure and blood circulation issues (heart rate increases dramatically from sitting to standing, and any light pressure on my body causes pain and the feeling of loss of circulation).

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

Every day is a challenge and I never know which symptoms and to what severity I will have to deal with on any given day. It's a difficult, embarrassing, emotional life. The stigma surrounding a vax injury has changed my perspective on doctors, the medical system, governments, and vaccine industries. It is depressing and maddening. It's hard to hold on to hope and faith, but I do.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

I have been everywhere from Centracare to the Mayo Clinic. I have had a crazy amount of blood tests, urine tests, nerve conduction tests, MRIs with and without contrast -head, upper and lower back, etc. All doctors and specialists say the same things: everything looks normal and "the vaccine is so new that we don't know anything right now" My response to this is...we are right here. Study us!. Think outside the lines of your textbook and problem solve and figure it out!!!

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

I reported it to VAERS, Pfizer, and filed a report with CICP (countermeasures injury compensation program). I received a general response from VAERS 2 months later that they received the report. No other responses from anywhere else...!

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

LDN (low dose naltrexone), supplements, acupuncture, anti-histamine diet, counseling, FB website/new friends, exercise, lots of sleep, water, NervAlive

I have most symptoms under control, and I've come a long way, but I still have a very long way to go.

Q: Have you had Covid before?


Q: What do you wish others knew?

You are not alone! Keep fighting! We will win and we will get help! Don't give up and don't go through this by yourself. Reach out!
