First Dose of Sinopharm on 08/29/21

Second Dose of Sinopharm on 09/19/21


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

I was healthy without pre-existing diseases.

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

The same day of the application, on the 29th, a red lump appeared on my cheek. The next day, when I woke up on the 30th, I felt itchy on my back. When I checked myself I found several red spots on my back, torso and thighs. These points became larger and redder.

I went to dermatology and they did a biopsy, which indicated suggestive of mycosis fungoides. They performed 2 more biopsies with inconclusive results.

On September 9th, a red rash appeared on my abdomen. It spread to the thighs, legs and arms. These symptoms have decreased in intensity but still persist 4 months later.

In October, joint pains began, including severe pain in the alkyl tendon that made it impossible for me to walk normally. These pains persist more than 2 months after their appearance. In mid-November I began to observe something similar to water, at the ends of my visual field. This vision has spread to almost the entire end of my visual field, and after a few days, I began to see small lights. They were like flashes when I observe some light surface or when I go out on the street. This persists for almost 2 months.

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

Insomnia, worry, spending all my money on tests to determine what I have, and no identifiable cause identified.

I have probable mycosis fungoides, and probable lupus.

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

I had 2 ER visits, urgent care, and PCP. I have seen a neurologist and I am waiting for my echocardiogram on 01/28/22.

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

I have attended several health centers, but it is not possible to determine what is happening. All deny that it could be the vaccine.

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

Hasta ahora nada.

Q: What do you wish others knew?
