Las Vegas, Nevada
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
I was in amazing shape, I was healthy, living my best life. I was never depressed, I had just gotten a new job/career and was excited for my next chapter of my life. The woman who I loved and the woman of my dreams came back to me.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
I had noticed I had developed a sleep disorder shortly after getting the first shot of the vaccine. I also noticed at work I started having tremors in my hands. Over time I started experiencing muscle twitching, nerve pains, random paresthesia all over my body. At times I had fog. Excessive sweating. All autonomic responses. My body would constantly jolt awake when trying to fall asleep or a limb would move. The back head muscle also had locked up and my upper back muscles had a lot of stress on them. I also had noticed that I came in from work one day and I was just drenched absolutely in sweat and my armpits were completely drenched.
Q: What was your life like after getting the vaccine?
It has been an uphill climb, some symptoms have resolved, while others have gotten worse. This made me realized I wasn't as prepared for something like this as I thought I was. It's taken me a few months to get my mental state back to normal and to not be emotional and depressed. I had to take a look in the mirror, regardless of what is to happen we have to make this right within ourselves, to make ourselves happy again because lesson be told anything can kill us.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
I started by going to a primary care, we did lab work, results were clean. I did a brain MRI, results were clean. I went to a neurologist who did all basic tests on me and had me do a VGCC antibody test and nothing came back. The Neurologist wanted to do nerve and muscle conduction tests, but I said no thanks. What's the point in finding out I have a muscle and nerve issue when I already know I do? I've been told you have anxiety, and these are your scenarios. I knew something wasn't right. Since, I decided to go to a couple of different holistic Dr's. I did a regiment of detoxing and healthy vitamins along with eating healthy for the time needed. Some of things got better, but not completely. I also started going to the Chiropractor and getting therapy. After seeing all the crazy stories of people being laughed at and being called a fraud by their Dr's, I turned away. Something got me sick and I needed to find out what that was.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
It hasn't been reported anywhere, I've decided not to do so aside from posting my story out there to other people.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
I am now after a few months starting to sleep ten times better, it started with I couldn't sleep at all, then to a little bit of sleep, then to more sleep, then to hey I can get a full nights rest without waking up, then to, hey I can take a nap again. Also, my muscle twitching has gone down. My neuro pains have increased, but with all my chiropractor therapy being done, my body is slowly but surely starting to loosen up. My back head muscle had been locked up for some time and I couldn't even turn it.
Q: What do you wish others knew?
I wish I knew that there was a risk to getting the vaccine, as there is to Covid. The media and these Dr's are telling everyone it's completely safe, and they are using the small percentage who are having issues as an excuse to not educate the public about the risk of getting it. Not only are people affected physically, they have been affected mentally and some become suicidal. My goal before I die is to be that rock, now that I've gone through the worst of the worst regardless the outcome I'm now stronger than ever. I will speak about my story, let them silence but I won't go without a fight.
