First Dose of Pfizer on 4/15/21 Lot #ER8729

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

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

I was a very healthy and happy 26 year old. I was able to do hour long cycling classes and I volunteered a lot in my neighborhood.

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

A week after my first and only shot I developed pleurisy in my left lung; the side I got the shot. I also developed chills, nerve pain and muscle weakness, constant tinnitus, blurry vision and dry eyes, vertigo, brain fog and more.

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

My life after the vaccine has been very lonely and hard due to being the only person in my family and friend group who is injured. I have cried more this year than I have in my entire lifetime. It has caused me so much mental, emotional, and of course physical pain.

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

The first doctor I went to in the ER told me that my reaction was vaccine induced which I was shocked about. I assumed all doctors would be like him. I was very wrong. My GP gaslit me so bad and said that vaccines cannot cause these reactions and told me to take the second one. Most of the other doctors and specialists I’ve been to have been pro vaccine as well. I am only interested in seeing functional doctors for the rest of my life unless it’s an emergency.

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

I reported my reaction to VAERS and they emailed me back but it just seems like a waste of time to me. They haven’t been very responsive to anyone else and they have not even admitted these reactions on the news.

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

Tumeric has been my saving grace. It has made the sound of my tinnitus bearable to live with. It is also a blood clot preventer and a great antioxidant. Also fruit and vegetable juices and a clean diet seem to really alleviate many of the symptoms. Glutathione IV’s are also really good at helping alleviate some symptoms.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish others knew that sharing real life experiences about a very new vaccine is not ‘misinformation’. Just because it didn’t happen to you, doesn’t mean it’s not happening! We deserve to be heard and to be helped. We tried to do what we felt was right and we were abandoned to fiend for ourselves from most of the medical field and even family and friends.
