Janel Guy

First Dose of Pfizer in October of 2021

Ontario, Canada

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

I was a full-time, professional athlete and trainer.

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

I got the vaccine because it was required to access my gym.

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

I had immediate pain all over. My toes went numb. After a month, the numbness spread up to my knees.

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

I have partial movement in my lower legs, but they're extremely tingly. Walking is difficult. I've been getting around on crutches. I'm on disability leave.

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

Waiting on appointments with specialists. Doctor says it could be peripheral artery disease.

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

Reported it to Public Health, waiting on response.

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

Nothing has helped. Only seems to be getting worse.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish I didn't get the vaccine, but I couldn't handle the discrimination and segregation.

Janel, 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


Sorry to hear of your plight. I wish it were simple to remedy. I have a suggestion you can try. Get a Ki Bal from and place it on your bedside table for 3 months.

But it was truly the easiest and best decision of my life, the easiest because there was only one right decision in my mind. I'm not going to be pushed around or intimidated into doing something that could potentially harm my health, even if it is the most important thing to me. I felt tested as a man, to put my money where my mouth is, and I'm proud and feel…
