What was your life like before you received the Covid-19 Vaccine?: It was a normal and active life. I was healthy

Describe your Symptoms and the timeline of your reaction.: After one week I started having symmetric pain in my wrists, fingers and neck. And in a few weeks the pain involved also shoulders, jaw, elbow and knees. In July I was diagnosed with arthritis and in august I was unable to even pick up a glass of water. I was disabled.

Describe the Solutions that helped your Symptoms?: Medrol (Methylprednisolone) helped to relieve the symptoms but brought other problems such as higher glycemia and hypertension from time to time. Therefore I have to find alternative solutions.

Which Solutions weren’t helpful?: Anti-inflammatory treatment and ibuprofen were not helpful

When you were at your worst, what percentage would you say your reaction was?: 100

What would you like others to know?: I would like others to know that in Italy it is very difficult to find a doctor who freely admit that there is a relation between the vaccination and the adverse reactions. It’s a sort of barrier that is very difficult to overcome.
