54 yrs old

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

Very active, worked full time job, managed a cattle farm.

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

Employer mandated

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

5 days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, I was diagnosed with Guillan Barre syndrome. I was having numbness and tingling in my toes and hands. 5 days later I was paralyzed from the shoulders down and classified as a quadriplegic. I was told that I had a severe case of GBS and the doctors said they didn’t know if I would completely recover. I spent 3 months in the hospital and rehab. Currently, I have regained the use and feeling everywhere except for my ankles, feet and toes. I can walk with a walker. Activities like cooking and showering are exhausting. I can’t drive and are unable to work due to being a fall risk and the fatigue.

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

They did a spinal tap and diagnosed me with Guillan Barre syndrome

Q: Are there any treatments we should know about that helped?


Q: Have you had Covid before?

Yes, mild case

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Vaccines need more testing!
