First Dose of Pfizer on 08-13-21
Christchurch, New Zealand
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
Life was awesome and I was fit and strong. I was a security protection officer. I loved going to the gym, boxing and martial arts.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
My back started getting sore. Each day it was a bit worse until I couldn't stand at work, and I'm security protection officer. The pain got worse each day until it got excruciating. It has stayed like that. My spine is so sore to touch, and even my shirt moving over it is painful. 4 months later, I'm still the same.
Q; What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?
Painful. Debilitating. Crippling.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
No diagnosis. I have been to musculoskeletal doctors and had xrays, an MRI, and bloodwork.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
The Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (CARM), and my doctor. I am still not believed.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
Heat... pain relief....stretching
Q: What do you wish others knew?
We need to know about side affects so we can be diagnosed and treated.
