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

Normal, healthy for the most part. I did not know at the time i had covid. I had covid virus end of 2019. Lost taste. My saliva gland on left side of face went haywire with swelling everytime I ate something. Lasted for a couple weeks approximately. Also pain around trunck of body with first round of covid. Thought I had shingles or something. I worked with people with covid and seemed to have immunity after first round for 2 yrs till I got vax. Got covid twice within 6 month of vax.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I did not realize the saliva gland thing was due to the covid until i got vaxed and got same symptoms as the actual virus. Had the enlarged saliva gland issue with first vax. Had the pain around trunk of body same as virus. Lasted a couple weeks and was afraid to get second round. Got second round. Now I have ongoing rash on chest and ear. Bumps popping up on hairline on the back of my head. All very itchy. All seems to be getting worse. Tried some different home remedies such as cortisone cream. Oregano oil. Ready to consult a dermatologist. General tiredness. Was cleaning a large home and cut back my hrs because I'm just not as strong as I was. Told my client I can't do it anymore. Memory is not good at all. I feel like my immunity is waining.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Nothing seems to help.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Cortisone cream and oregano oil did not help. Have not seen a doctor as of yet. I am afraid of the Healthcare system.
