I’ve been seen dermatology, rheumatology, immunology. and I have had a punch skin biopsy confirming my disease. I have had CT x 2, MRI x 3, and colonoscopy.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
A yellow card has been completed by Rheumatology to report that the vaccine has caused GPA vasculitis, a very rare illness.
Q: Are there any treatments we should know about that helped or hurt your health?
I find taking a vegan diet helped me, I take vitamin D, NAC, mung bean, vit C, turmeric, quercetin helps.
Q: Have you had Covid before?
I had Covid last summer, and the vaccine injury was comparable to it. My skin rash exasperated and symptoms caused by the vaccine worsened.
Q: What do you wish others knew?
Push hard with medical professionals for a diagnosis. Biopsy your skin. I’m really keen to try plasma exchange in the future.
