Second Dose of Pfizer on 11/26/21

New Zealand

36 yrs old

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

Not an athlete but I was always active and in decent shape with no health issues, at least 4 days a week in the gym and tried to walk everywhere as much as possible, occasionally bike or skateboard. My work is not physical though its mostly sitting at a computer!

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

In New Zealand its been mandated and pretty much required for most things at this point. Even my gym announced in 2021 that everyone will need a vaccine pass (double dose).

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

First dose I initially passed out 5min after injection, I remember sitting in the waiting room then waking up on the floor with people around me. Nurses just gave me some water and sweets to raise blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Told me not to worry about it and that this happens sometimes. After about 15min I felt better and went back home. Mostly felt ok with no typical side effects that they describe, not even arm pain. I just felt tired and had an extra long sleep.

Over the next 3 weeks I mostly felt ok, just a little weird overall feeling but was really hard to describe. So I didn't really mention it to anyone. Just felt odd, like something is different about me. But I was still able to do everything including going to gym, and didn't notice any obvious issues.

Then suddenly on 21st of November while driving, my heart starts going all over the place. I had extreme palpitations, shortness of breath, feeling like I might pass out, and tingling in arms and legs. I legit thought I was dying. I was scared to pull over where I was because it was an empty road and I thought if I pull over I'll just die in the car and no one will find me for ages. I was about 15min away from home so I forced myself to keep driving while struggling through these symptoms. I was just trying to take deep breaths and make myself cough which kind of kept me going. I got home and was about to call an ambulance but started to feel slightly better, I drank some water and went to bed. Next day I felt ok but had some chest pains, I looked up the symptoms and spoke to some people, everything pointed towards an anxiety or panic attack. I was a bit surprised because I wasn't stressed about anything at the time and was feeling great before it happened, but anyway I didn't make the connection to the vaccine so I kept my appointment for 2nd dose on 26th.

26th November I went in for my 2nd dose (big mistake) this time I didn't pass out after the jab, but noticed almost instantly an increase in heart rate which wouldn't go down and felt very strange overall. over the next few days I kept getting that feeling that you get when you're going down the roller coaster, like a sinking feeling in the chest and stomach. But that was just the start of it, over the next couple months (and it's been insane) I developed random heart palpitations, chest pains, left arm pains, low energy, chest tightness, upset stomach, resting heart rate all over the place as high as 135 sometimes. One time I had it at 135 since lunch time till evening while just sitting at computer. That was first time I went to hospital. They did Xray, blood test, ECG/EKG, Ultrasound and everything came back normal so they sent me home. They gave me no advice on what to do or what it might be. On the report they wrote Sinus tachycardia with unknown cause.

Few days after first trip to hospital I ended up in another hospital (this time went to a different one). I had similar symptoms to include chest tightness/chest pains, increased heart rate for no reason etc... They did all the same tests and let me go as well, didn't find anything and gave me no advice.

I finally managed to get an appointment with a GP, who was the first one to tell me that yes all the symptoms match as a bad reaction to vaccine, and he said he has seen many cases. But he also didn't give me any advice on what to do, but just said hang in there and hopefully it improves over time. Well its been over 2 months now. I am feeling slightly better but all the symptoms are still there.

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

Over 2 months now I haven't been able to go to gym or do any form of exercise, my heart rate spikes and I start to feel like am having a heart attack. I can only walk around a bit. So I mostly been staying home only occasionally going out to shops, but I feel like an old man when I go anywhere now. I work from home but I haven't been able to do any work either for over 2 months now, for some reason mental focus has been destroyed as well, and any mental strain seems to trigger the symptoms as well. When I over do it I have to lay down to recover. So all I been doing is putting on Netflix in the background but not even focusing on that either its just background noise.

There are some days when I feel like am getting much better, but those moments are short lived and symptoms randomly come back again. Specially if I decide to start doing normal things again.

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

So far no one has been able to tell me anything of value, initial hospital visits they just wrote Sinus Tachycardia, with slight elevation in inflammatory markers, possibly due to viral illness. That was it!

My GP was the first one to admit its vaccine related, but also gave me no advice on what to do, and didn't put me through to more testing. Just prescribed Naproxen to take in case of chest pains for pain relief, and just said hang in there hopefully it gets better over time.

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

GP supposed to report it for me. I personally haven't reported it anywhere else yet, and at the hospital they refused to say it could be vaccine related.

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

Overall I am slightly improved - but as soon as I think I'm better it comes back again. I still can't function normally. I'm mostly just sitting at home!

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

Nope - never had covid to my knowledge.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Be cautious of risks. It's definitely not as rare as they claim. There needs to be more support groups and information out there on what to do for those effected by this. The Covid vaccine should not be forced on anyone. It should be a personal decision after the benefits and risks are explained. This has not been done, and a lot of information is being suppressed very heavily all over the world. There are constant lies being told on how safe it is. I just really hope there is no permanent damage to those effected.
