First Dose of Pfizer on 09/10/21 Lot #FC3183

Second Dose of Pfizer on 10/02/21 Lot #FC3182


50 yrs old

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

I was a healthy and active 50 year old. Not on any medications. No health issues.

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

Four hours after my first dose of Pfizer vaccine, I became extremely dizzy and disoriented. I had to lie down and close my eyes to keep from getting nauseous. Lasted through the night. I remained dizzy off and on for a week.

Nine hours after my second Pfizer vaccine, I got bad headache, my left lymph node under my arm hurt, severe brain fog (couldn’t speak only mumbled , couldn’t write-looked like hieroglyphics, couldn’t remember words), my left side from my face all way down to foot went numb/tingling, lips tingled, dizzy. These symptoms are ongoing on and off since Oct 2. Dec 20 my carotid artery on left side started hurting and twitching, left eye corner numb and eye sight in left eye off, sharp pain in right groin, sharp pain at top of right calf behind knee, right lymph node hurt under arm, fatigue after small physical exertion. All previous symptoms still ongoing. These were added and are ongoing.

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

Some days I’m not able to drive or get out of the house. It has been frustrating trying to communicate while having the mental fog, I’m off balance and am at risk of falling and running into things. I drop things because of the weakness in left side, the headaches are daily, I can only sleep on my back or my carotids start hurting and twitching, right thumb twitches, and I have a left eye twitch. I am concerned I may have a stroke or blood clot because of my symptoms. Seems worse at night and I pray the Lord gets me through the night. Praise God He answers prayers!

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

I have seen primary Dr, Neurologist Dr immunologist/allergist Dr, Cardiologist Dr. Have had blood test, Brain MRI, EEGs, Ultrasound and CT scan carotids. All test normal.

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

Reported to primary Dr and Pfizer. Did not hear from Pfizer. My primary Dr made note in my file I had allergic reaction to vaccine. I tried to report to Walgreens where I got the vaccine administered but they would not listen. All Drs seem to not want to admit this was vaccine related. It was hard to find Dr that would even accept an appointment because I stated right away I believed it was a reaction to the vaccine.

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

Since none of the Dr could find anything wrong, they don’t know what to tell me as far as trying any medications. I’m still having the symptoms. Some days are better than others but always there. Wish I knew what this is doing to me because I’m not imagining these symptoms. I’m concerned of what damage is being done while I’m trying to find someone to tell me if there is anything I can do to stop it.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish there was more info on the adverse reactions that obviously are occurring with a lot of people not rare occasions. It is hard to find any info online and doctors don’t know or won’t say. There needs to be help from the government for people who experience these reactions (diagnosis, treatment and financial). There definitely needs to be help financially through disability for those injured from the vaccine.
