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

Constant pain and depression. I spend most of my days in a chair at home. I can’t work, and I have multiple doctors visits monthly. My days are filled with treatments and testing, anger, no desire to do anything, and constantly feeling drained and defeated.

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

I’ve had MRIs of the head neck and spine. CT of head, a TCD, a lumbar puncture, EMG, EEG, Ultrasound of my carotid artery, ultrasound of my thyroid, EKG, every blood test under the sun. Diffuse brain dysfunction, new auto immune disease, elevated D dimer, elevated Epstein bar panel, inflammation. I’ve done Plasmapheresis, IVIG, Solu-Medrol IVs. I am on Lovenox blood thinner injections and Celebrex. I’m waiting the results for some other exams for other medications and treatments to come.

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

VAERS- Reported by my work. I’ve had no response.

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

My headaches have improved - they are not as consistent every day like they were before. However, neurologically I have had no improvement.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

You have no idea what it is like to go to the doctor and not know how to fix you or if they believe you. Please just do the proper research so you can make an educated decision.
