What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

Working full time-active- walked 3 miles 3 times per week. Active singer and performer. I slept well and had no other medical conditions.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I received the J&J vaccine April 6,2021 and on 4/21/21 developed BP elevations, chest tightness and severe pain and swelling in my right leg as well as the left. I was sent to the ER and received an Ultra Sound which showed only no evidence of arthritis or blood clots. These initial symptoms seemed to relieve somewhat.

In November of 2021 I was tested and had a mild case of Covid19- I had mild Covid symptoms with the above symptoms increasing. The symptoms became sever February 20, 2022. I was unable to see my GP until March of 2022 and was tested and diagnosed with Epstein Barr virus. The testing showed the viral load of EBV declined some by the time of the testing following extreme symptom onset.

The symptoms continued following the EBV resolution and continue to this day. I have seen my GP, Neurologists and an Infectious Disease "specialist". My GP. after 6 months admitted that I was dealing with a vaccine injury but offered no resolution. The Neurologist claimed there was nothing wrong with me and the Infectious Disease expert laughed at me repeatedly and claimed there was nothing wrong with me. All of my doctors have been part of the same large medical system. I have continued strong stiffness in my legs with pain and tingling as well as weakness and heaviness in my arms. Also, frequent and debilitating exhaustion.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I have been on the FLCCC protocol for vaccine injury and continue to be. I have tried multiple IV treatments of Vitamin C as well as Ozone blood treatments. My symptoms remain and I am unable to work or exert physical activity. Walking is difficult. I have had MRI's, Ultra Sound(s), Nerve Conduction studies, multiple blood panel no avail.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Of the treatments I have tried, it is difficult to say which, if any didn't help but I am still stuck where I am and have had no further improvement for 6-7 months now.

What would you like others to know?

The general medical community seems conditioned to ignore symptoms and offer little to no solutions. An example: In late November 22, I called the Neurologist office for an appointment for follow up testing (referred by my GP). The appointment secretary said, "Okay, we can get you in but it may be after the holidays say, in January" I agreed, no problem,. please set the appointment" She left the phone to bring up my "chart" and came back saying, "well, the earliest any of our 5 neurologists could see you is in June (23')" SEVEN MONTHS. AFTER BEING TOLD JANUARY. I believe my chart was flagged and I was put off. My GP had referred this with notations of the GP suspecting possible Guillan Barre Syndrome for the neurologists. GBS is serious business but still I was pushed out 7 months. I do believe I was flagged and the appointment secretary didn't discover it until after telling my it would be January. The medical community in general, but not all, are not recognizing vaccine related injuries.
