First Dose of Pfizer on 10/14/21

Second Dose of Pfizer on 12/13/21

Ottawa, Canada

45 yrs old

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

I was a healthy 45 yr old woman.

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

Mandated by the Federal Government of Canada. Mr Trudeau. I took the vaccines because the pressure was too much: work, media, friends,etc.

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

When I first got my vaccine I felt a funny feeling on my neck I didn’t think much of it. Got home and I was fine, the next day I experienced a sharp pain on my chest, It wasn’t too bad and lasted 10 days. Then the dizziness started, I was dizzy pretty much all day. I developed pressure headaches, ice pick headaches, and pulsations on my temples. The headaches would often trigger the dizziness and would last for 2-3 hours. Then it would happen again. I also had lots of pain on the veins of my left calf with tingling and numbness. I couldn’t get an exemption for the second shot even though I was still dizzy, etc. and it was mandated for my work. The second shot intensified all my side effects. But this time I had more. I experienced burning sensations inside my head, ears, and legs. Pain and pressure on ears as if on an airplane, then pain on the lymph glands behind ears. Gastro problems, heartburn and nausea. Sometimes the veins on my fingers hurt, it feels as if I had chemotherapy (never had it but it’s the best way I can explain). All these symptoms are intermittent and rotate. It continues today. Some nights I am scared to fall asleep. Some days I feel better but then a big relapse and get discouraged.

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

I get tired if I walk too fast. I can’t do physical activities with my 3 kids like skating, skiing, etc. I stopped doing Zumba It’s really hard to work and I go to the empty office beside mine to lay down for a bit. My life is completely affected by this.

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

My doctor thinks the vaccine caused this but is mostly anxiety. Ct scan, d dimer, and all blood tests came back normal. I have tried knocking doors but most doctors think it’s “causality” and not vaccine related. I don’t think the medical system will be able to help since they don’t accept it or even know what to do.

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

Yes reported it to Public Health, they said they will give a recommendation with regards to the booster.

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

My faith in God, I am so blessed to be a Catholic.

The support of family and my loving husband.

I am following Saint Hildergard’s books for healing. Eating lots of chestnuts for gaba, spelt in all meals, and cow’s feet soup for collagen. All that according to Saint Hildergard of Bingen

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

No covid

Q: What do you wish others knew?

That these vaccines are dangerous, I would never put it on my kids.

Claudia, I just want you to know you are not alone. As a fellow vaccine injured victim, I created a FB support group. If you need anything, please let me know. I hope to help as many people as I can just like us through support, resources, education, and anything else to help them through this journey with so many others that I am bringing together to support those like us. Sending prayers and hugs. Cat
