Chantale Bailey

First Dose of Pfizer on 10/06/21 Lot #FD7206


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

Very active lifestyle. I was a healthy 40 year old woman. No underlying health issues

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

Day one- October 6th of getting the vaccine I experienced heaviness in my legs, myalgia in my back, paraesthesia and hypoesthesia in my legs and pain in my abs A few days later I experienced paresthesia in my face, right arm and back. I also experience brain fog and arthralgie in my knees. Now two months after - December the following are still persisting and new symptoms are showing up such as muscle spasms. Paresthesia - arm, sometimes in my head, and left calf and foot Brain fog is on and off Hypoaesthesia- in both legs however more apparent in my right calf. Arthralgia in my joints this is on and off also. Muscle spasms in my face, my legs, my stomach.

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

My body isn’t the same as before. I was a very active person now I have to think twice before doing any activity. I get tired easily or my joints hurt. I have to take time to stretch to ensure my body doesn’t feel like I’m 90.

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

My doctor has provided me a temporary exemption however she doesn’t think I will qualify for an exemption. I went for blood test however all came back clear. Im scheduled for an MRI to rule out MS. In the meantime no other care was provided to me but the hopes that my symptoms will just disappear. I currently go for acupuncture and I think it’s working however my symptoms haven’t disappeared yet..not even for a day.

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

Public health called me and told me they recommended that I take the second dose as in Ontario there is only really two reasons that you can get an exemption.

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

I’ve currently taking supplements -NAC, quercetin, vitamin C, D and B12. Zinc. Curcumin and Magnesium. I’m also stretching twice a day and exercising. And finally acupuncture

Q: What do you wish others knew?

That you can get adverse reaction from the vaccines and that you should, like me, personally email your MP and PM, Pfizer.
