Rebecca Miller

First Dose of Pfizer on 09/24/21

Victoria, Australia

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

Worked full time including climbing ladders. On the road as an account Manager in Construction Industry. I do have a history of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome & Fibromyalgia but was able to still work a 40+ hr week.

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

Within 6 hours I progressively lost lower limb function completely, complete absent LL reflexes within a week, and reduced UL & weakness. My resting heart rates into 120's, blood pressure down in high 80's, bladder & bowel issues, extreme fatigue. I was hospitalized until 11/19/21 when I then went into the rehab in the home program.

As of 01/09/22 I'm in extreme pain in lower limbs, and all other issues still present. I can walk up to 15 paces a day with a walking frame, remainder is bed or wheelchair bound.

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

I have no life. My state government won't even grant medical exemption for it's not a listed Pfizer contraindications & full vaccination is mandatory here. No financial help by the government at all. Once I'm well enough, I still can't go anywhere or return to work.

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

I was misdiagnosed at the first hospital during acute stage with Functional Neurological Disorder - with only a NON contrast MRI conducted.

It wasn't until the 6th week mark when it was too late for diagnostic lumber punctures & NCS, that the 2nd transferring hospital picked up on error due to absent reflexes. They said it would have actually been Guillain-Barre Syndrome, but too late to change without tests.

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

2nd hospital reported to Australian Immunization Registry & VicSIS. No record of 1st hospital reporting anything. I reported to TGA.

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

I'm trying arthritis sprays but I have serious allergies to most pain killers.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Vaccination should be a choice, and not forced on anyone. An INFORMED decision. I shouldn't be treated like a conspiracy theory because the media is only telling the big pharma's & government's paid story.
