First Dose of Pfizer on 6/03/21

United Kingdom

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

My life was still not as should be because of all pandemic situation had some health issues in the past like chronic pain endometriosis back pain urticaria fatigue sleeping problems but they were my problems and I could deal with them they were mine I had enough to deal with.

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

Started minutes after vaccine. Felt blurred and dizzy and shaking. My hand was in terrible pain for 2 days. I couldn't use it much 10 days after; with horrible dizziness, lost balance, light fainting, numbness, started depersonalization, pins and needles, insomnia, anxiety attacks, tremors, twitching, formication.

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

Horrible. I was strong for more than 5 months, but started to be unbearable. Only my faith and God keeps me going. I’ve pushed myself all this time through it and worked even if i was really sick. Been twice to emergency; they didn't know what's happening, and told me that they don't know yet. All investigations were fine but I was losing myself slowly. It’s hard every day - you don t know how you will wake up or if you will ever wake up. After 10 days I was fine - myself again. On my period - it all started again. It happens every month since, with symptoms changing too. I believe in God’s healing and one day I will be myself. Until then, I try to stay on the surface, and not drown.

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

Still waiting for my brain mri results. All blood tests were fine. No help, no diagnoses; as they don't know how to help me in uk.

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

Yellow book - no response whatsoever

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

Positive thinking, prayers, vitamins, supplements and a warrior attitude.

But sometimes I am tired of being strong but I have to keep going despite.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish them to know the truth before they take the vaccine that the reaction are not so rare and there are huge risks and their health can be compromised drastically.

Wish them to think twice before they put an experimental v in their system.
