UPDATE 6/26/22:

Some of my side effects 9 months later have improved a lot but others haven’t, and a newer one is worse hair loss. The heart palpitations, involuntary muscle movements, and memory damage are better. The worse pain continues, along with severe insomnia. I have pain and burning in my bladder now. I feel like I have a bladder infection, but I don't.


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

I had a complex 26 year-long, nonstop, headache. It was due to 3 neck/head injuries (cervicogenic headache). However, I had gotten the pain down to a survivable level after the latest accident in 2018. I was active, happy and did a lot. Life was good.

I work for the Feds and had to choose between my job or getting a vaccine before October 15th. I stupidly chose income over my health...and now may end up on disability anyway.

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

About 5.5 hours after the shot, my "normal" headache got EXTREMELY bad. My vision got blurry, I had heart palpitations, and all the muscles in my body got stiff and sore. That evening I had internal vibrations which I had never felt before. Two mornings later, at almost 55, I spotted!!

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

Most of the other side effects cleared up in a few days, but as the almost 15 weeks now have passed, the headache with burning scalp and neck is getting worse and worse. I have NO quality of life. Nothing is helping. I cannot live like this! I'm so scared about my future. I'm seeing that a lot of people with chronic pain are MUCH worse after getting vaccinated.

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

I just started seeing my 110th doctor/healer and my spine is messed up, which I knew, but he's had other patients who've started barfing blood after getting a COVID vaccine. From what I have found online in studies done, the J&J can attack spinal nerves...which seems to be what's happening. I'm also worried about brain blood clots as I have most of the symptoms.

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

VAERS and some other site I'm blanking on. Janssen now has a file on me and is monitoring my I'm a lab rat.

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

Kratom has helped SLIGHTLY but nowhere near enough. Hemp CBD hasn't helped. Regular pain killers do nothing.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

That these vaccines are NOT safe and should not be mandated for people to keep their jobs! I never get sick. I take care of myself. What's going on is EVIL regarding censorship.
