I live with it now.

I feel that I became 20 years older physically in 4,5 months. No energy to do things, waking up with headache every morning , night palpitations became permanent and I take Metoprolol for it.

Seen several doctors, all labs were normal but when they took my blood I noticed it was almost black color. They admitted it was side effect from the vaccine and suggested to take painkillers.

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

Yes, I reported to VAERS, no one responded.

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


Q: What do you wish others knew?

Doctors don’t know how to help us, they need to read more on this subject.
