First Dose of Pfizer on 03/26/21 Lot #ER2613


47 yrs old

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

My life was good. I’m a health Coach so lived what I preached. Exercised 4-5 days a week, hiked, worked, very active around the house. Not preexisting conditions or health issues.

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

Thought it would protect me from getting very sick and unwell. Believed it was safe.

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

After a minute or so of the shot, I felt I was going to pass out. 24 hrs later I started having palpitations and a nose bleed. The days went by and I felt more tired than usual, especially after working out. On May 3rd, I couldn’t wake up from bed because of the exhaustion I felt. Tinnitus, brain fog, EBV reactivation and a lot of other symptoms appeared.

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

After a year I’m better but still can’t exercise or push myself with activities, because I collapse at night and all symptoms flare up again.

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

At the beginning was MCAS, POTS, but now my diagnosis is post vaccine injury syndrome

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

I reported my injury last year to VAERS and Pfizer but never heard back from them. This year I asked my doctor to report and she did. A week later they called me from VAERS to ask a couple questions regarding my ER visits and said they were investigating my case. Never heard back.

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

Rest, rest, rest and manage stress levels. I did 2 apheresis back in December I think they helped a lot. Will repeat 2 more treatments soon to see if I can improve.

Q: Have you had Covid before?

Never had covid.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I would like to share that we should keep sharing our story with the people around us, doctors, everyone, so we can spread the word of what is going on, and we can get the help and attention we deserve. Ask your doctor to report your case, as that is the only way they will acknowledge it.
