First Dose of Moderna on 04/13/21 Lot #046B21A
64 yrs old
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
Prior to April 13, 2021 I lived a normal life. I could and did walk 21Ks and even climbed up machu puchu in 2018. My left arm worked well enough that I could PAINLESSLY cook, wash dishes, hang up laundry, wash my hair, scratch my back, dress myself, turn a steering wheel, and walk without using a cane.
Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?
To stay alive, healthy, strong and covid free.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
I received the 2nd covid vaccine at CVS in SOLEDAD, CA on APRIL 13, 2021. Two days later I had horrible painful adverse reactions. This included extreme nausea, swollen lymph nodes, severe vomiting, chills, fatigue, tinnitus, dizziness, loss of left arm use, inability to walk more than 10 steps, and internal burning pain running from the neck down the arm to the wrist that not even morphine in the ER could stop. My cartilage has painfully detached away from my left ribs.
Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?
A living nightmare.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
The cost for my (7) seven visits to ER following 4/13/21 included brain and heart cat scans, MRIs, x-rays, ultrasounds, echo tests, stress tests, neurologists, cardiologists, physical therapy, and prescribed drugs, is easily over $200K.
My doctor ordered I never get another covid vaccine.
One doctors response was, "I and my entire family got the vaccine and nothing happened to me". Whoopdeedo for him and his family. That did not change any of the physical damage I have experienced.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
It was reported directly by me to Moderna located in Texas and to hospital staff at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital on (7) seven different occasions.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
Not really. Magnesium topical spray helped a little on my legs. Morphine in the hospital did nothing to alleviate the burning pain running internally from my neck down my arm to my wrist. It felt like my arm was on fire internally. JUST HORRIBLE. IT HAS BEEN 10 MONTHS NOW AND I CAN WALK A LITTLE BETTER, about 1 one block with the cane. No more 21ks for me at this time. I have been drinking artichoke and dandylion tea to help my liver safely expel the toxic poisons of propylene glycol.
Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?
I never had covid. I was directly exposed 3 times. In 2020 , 2021, and 2022. I nursed my husband back to health.
Q: What do you wish others knew?
Please be discerning in your decisions for you and your family's best health. Stay healthy stay safe. Be blessed. Thank you for reading my personal experience with Moderna's covid vaccine.
Feel free to share any part of my experience with your family, friends, doctors or government officials. My name is Irma Estrada from California.
