*Nurses on telephone help line advised not from Pfizer as three days had passed

*Advised me to see a Dr., I Went to medi center; advised not from Pfizer, encouraged to get second shot, did a battery of blood test, heart test, urine test; advised everything normal and I was advised that these symptoms are caused due to stress and anxiety and will subside in two-weeks. *Went to Emergency Department shortly after situation so bad – waited 8 hours to see a doctor

*Internal Medicine Specialist advises blood pressure not connected to Pfizer, suggests psychologist or psychiatric referral – Specialist heavily encouraged me to get a second shot.

*Appointment with neurologist – advises from neurological standpoint nothing wrong with me as there is NO INFLAMATION in blood or urine – asks me if I am under stress and if there are problems at work or at home perhaps causing these symptoms – neurologist heavily encourages me to get a second shot

*August, back at emergency hospital again as so shaky cannot lift light item out of fridge; no inflammation – Emergency doctor heavily encourages me to self refer to mental health supports due to anxiety and tearfulness

*Trying to hang in there

*The vaccine is mandatory for my employment (or rapid testing at employee's own cost), I am too sick to work even one hour at this point - I will not be taking any more vaccines ever again.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any

diagnoses you have received:

Out of numerous physicians at different levels, no one has reported the symptoms. I was treated like I was suffering from mental illness and the physical symptoms appear to be dismissed. No accurate reporting of how symptoms are connected to Pfizer shot on even one occasion. No treatment offered outside of blood pressure pills and referral to a Psychologist and Psychiatrist - anxiety medication. I do not have a familuial history of anxiety or depression and I have not had any struggles with anxiety or depression prior to the physical symptoms which occurred four days after the Pfizer shot.

Q;Where has your reaction been reported, and what was the


(3x)Nurses a few days after the shot on three separate occasions, (2x) medi center doctor after the shot, numerous times to Primary Care Physician, (3x) Internal Medicine Specialist, 2 separate Emergency Room Physicians, 1 time - Neurologist.

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

The electric bolt nerve sensations through my limbs are not present to the same intensity as they were before.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I am appalled at the lack of information related to dangerous side effects and lack of informed consent procedures. I am appalled and horrified at the medical communities lack of ethics and how medical professionals continue to encourage these shots. My viewpoint of the world we live in has been forever altered.
