First Dose of Pfizer on 01/05/21 Lot #EL042


UPDATE 07/18/22:

Don’t give up! I am almost 17 months out and doing much better. I am not cured by any means, but I am functioning now. I took a step back and started focusing on myself and my healing. It is working. I don’t know how long it will last or if my next flare will be awful, but I have seen a big improvement.

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

I was Extremely active in my community with Non profits. I have been in Health Care for over 20 years until I received my first dose. I loved to hunt, fish, water sports, gardening. I enjoyed spending time with family and friends always laughing, dancing and living life to the fullest.

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

Within two hours I got a severe headache, followed by flu like symptoms over the next three days. On the third night, I lost the use of my left leg. When I woke up the next morning both of my legs were gone. I couldn’t move them or control them. Within 30 minutes, seizure like activity started which turn into full body convulsions. I have lost the use of my legs three times since January. Eleven months later, I am still dealing with tremors, fatigue, muscle weakness, pain, headaches, tingling, numbness, burning sensations all over my body, brain fog, memory loss.

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

I lost my career in Health Care. I didn’t drive for 7 months after my vaccine. I do not go out in public much. I am scared of the convulsions starting. It has happened before in public, and it scares everyone around me. I can’t go up and down stairs without my legs shaking to the point I cannot control them. I try to be hopeful but, I am not sure at this point if my life will ever be the way it use to be. I try to remain positive and supportive of others with these adverse reactions but I must be truthful with myself and accept things as they are.

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

I was hospitalized for 5 days. I have had around 60 office visits and traveled 5200 miles for failed treatments. I've spent my life savings on these treatments and visits. I am still undiagnosed.

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

It has been reported to Pfizer, the CDC, FDA, and the NIH Louisiana State Health Department. No substantial response from anyone.

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

Ivermectin got me walking again in June.

Regeneron injections have given me the best 7 weeks since taking my vaccine.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

If you end up like us vaccine injured, you are totally alone trying to figure out your treatments. There is no proper healthcare for you. Many doctors completely hide your symptoms and cover them up. They will not admit or address any of your adverse reactions.
