Ricardo Moreno

First Dose of AstraZeneca on 03/26/21


43 yrs old

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

I was healthy, loved swimming, biking, gym, walking, loved going out to eat and to the cinema, too. I loved my life.

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

I work in a hospital, and I thought at the time it was the right thing to do to keep me and others safe and healthy, but it's done the opposite.

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

So I had my vaccine on the 26th of March, and on the 9th of May, I started to get a weird pulsating headache like nothing I had experienced before. I took some tablets, but it did not go away. Then I felt pain in my eyes followed by dizziness, and from that day forward all different symptoms started to happen, including earaches, sensitivity to light to the point I have to wear sunglasses indoors, extreme fatigue, feeling faint on and off, off balance, insomnia, head zapping, pain in my legs and numbness, breathlessness, chest pains, palpitations, high bpm, random tremors, pins and needles in random places, especially head, feet, hands, muscles spasms mainly in my legs and anxiety. All these symptoms would come and go, sometimes better sometimes worst, although it got much better around month 9. Its been just over a year and still struggling with tachycardia mainly after dinner in the evening when I relax .

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

I am 99% better but still a daily struggle sometimes. I still get palpitations on and off, normally in the evening after dinner as soon as I relax. Not sure if I am left with PTSD or still the vaccine causing issues, but I want to be back to how I was fit and healthy and loving life before.

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

I have been to the doctor many times. I had tests done on my blood a few times, MRI, ECG, and all come back normal. My doctor kept telling me it's anxiety, when I know it's not all anxiety. I have been to A+E 3 times, and I was dismissed by doctors telling me it was just a panic attack, but I know I have not been right since the vaccine. My GP sent me over to the long covid clinic, and they have been not much help either, so I am completely disappointed with the medical profession. As soon as you mention the vaccine, they get all defensive and don't want to help or at least try to help .

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

I reported it to yellow card, AstraZeneca and my GP. I got a letter from my GP saying I had long covid and after the vaccine I got worse, but she refused to give me an exemption, so I can travel to see my family in Spain that I have not seen in 3 years .

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

So all I did was light exercises, taking breaks in between all through the day, vitamins C and D, zinc, B12 and magnesium, only drink water, cut down on fats and sugars, no alcohol either, fasting sometimes too.

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

Yes I did. 15th Dec 2021, I was sick for 20 days and left with a cough that lasted 3 months on and off.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Listen to your gut before go ahead with it.

Ricardo, I am so sorry this happened to you too. 😥I had J&J on 04/21 & Pfizer on 11/21. My health is destroyed. I was mandated to get mine for job & travel. I have chronic inflammation, pseudoparkinsonism, narcolepsy, dysautonomia, sleep apnea, tremors, migraines, tinnitus, and the list goes on and most of the adverse reactions and diseases came after the Pfizer jab. The J&J caused chronic insomnia and fatigue in the beginning. I have chronic bleeding & blood clots from it (rectal). Can't figure out what is wrong. I understand completely on the PTSD and anxiety. This has caused so much trauma for all of us. I want you to know you are NOT alone in this. 👫I have creat…

Thank you for sharing your story my brother. I am sorry that you believed the "safe and effective" experimental vaccine lie from the pit of hell. I am sorry that you thought taking the vaccine would help protect the vulnerable or keep others safe from Covid-19. That was a lie from the pit of hell.

Seek Jesus. Jesus is the solution to all your vaccine injuries. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am a living testimony of the mercy and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus healed me off all my vaccine injuries. He is the ONLY way. Please avoid any more experimental vaccine that the world elites will push on us. Do not liste…


Ricardo add Folic Acid also.

Too make healthy cells in the body you need these 5 things Iron, B12, Folic Acid, protein and intrinisc factor. The last 2 are not normally a big deal and neither is iron.

If you feed your body what it needs it will utilize them to heal yourself.

It's unbelievable that most Dr.s are saying the same thing to all patients, that's its ANXIETY !! How is that possible! Are they getting paid to say this and shut up?? Unfortunately you took an experimental v@x, And I hope you can get some help... Take Mullein and Black Seed oil , NAC from health good store...great for your lungs. Please don't take any more shots!!

Replying to

I had that 20 years ago by a neurologist who could not determine what was going on. In the end he rubber stamped me MS and just put it down to episodes so they can get rid of you.
