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

No arm pain.

I got it since they were telling us it would protect us from covid or lessen the effects if you did get covid. They said it may even save your life!

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

Sore arm that lasted to second shot. Then after the second shot, pain, numbness, and tingling through the whole arm constantly, and real intense pain where the shot was given!! All pain is still current!

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

Same, except now I have arm pain!!

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


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

Just told nurse before second shot that my arm pain never went away!

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

My arm is still in constant pain!!

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

Yes - loss of taste and smell, excruciating back pain, extreme tiredness and weakness

Q: What do you wish others knew?

There are real side effects to consider! But still need to know all the people we have lost! It is a choice or should be!!

Janine, 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

Ty for sharing!

I wonder what type of shame many sheeple will have to live with once they actually decide to do some real research for once in their life and realizing what's really going on. I wonder how many will be able to live with the shame moving forward in their life. We vote with our money & most importantly the decisions we make.

Replying to

Most likely they never will. The shame and knowledge that their behaviour contributed to this now by enabling such a situation is simply too much to fully bear. Therefore hardcore denial becomes the much easier and preferred route for continual functioning.

Even when the Nazi concentration camps were finally opened, and the German people forced to march through to see what they had been complacently enabling all those years, still many refused to believe what they saw, even though they could see it right in front of their own eyes!! And they maintained they had been "shown lies" right up until their dying day.

It is more than understandable that some people now choose to show no sympathy for those…

I experienced the same arm pain after my first dose of Moderna in October 2021. I just finished up 6 weeks of physical therapy to help get some motion back in my arm since I was in so much pain I was getting a frozen shoulder condition. I still have swelling under my arm & on my shoulder from since I was given my first dose. I hope you can find a physician that will get you on the path to alleviate the pain. The lymph nodes under my arm are still swollen, 7 months now. I experienced other adverse effects as well, but the arm pain was excruciating. Best wishes for your recovery
