Original Post 06/21/2023:

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

More healthy, I was working out 4-5 days per week and running. I had no pain or physical health problems, and I started getting back pain after the first two shots. My work required us to have a booster, despite having bad side effects.

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

My life was normal before the covid shots. I was on my way to losing all 50 pounds I need to lose due to PCOS. Then my life was turned upside down. I started experiencing severe lower back pain. I could not run, walk well, and multiple soft tumors began forming on my body. I also had mobility issues from the sacral joint tumors that had to get removed from surgery this December of 2022. I also got headaches and my joints severely hurt. I started having no social life and began to regain weight, as doctors began to gaslight me. I was diagnosed with over 8 new health conditions that are not in my family history. My life changed, and I became a chronic pain patient. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, facet atrophy, disc problems, spine inflammation, and fluid was found in my x-rays and MRIs in my lower back. My life changed forever and work has been hard. I’m afraid of losing my job due to all the chronic pain, absences and medical issues I am having. I am scared I won’t be able to work anymore, and our country has no help or support for vaccine-injured people. I feel like no one believes me.

UPDATE 04/16/2024:

I feel I was unjustly fired due to my vaccine injury. Read more and help out here:
