What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I took the first Moderna injection in March 2021. I took the injection because I believed it was needed to protect myself, my family (especially my elderly in laws), and others in my community. I believed it was safe, effective, and the right thing to do. After my first injection, I had an anaphylactic reaction: rash, tachycardia, dizziness, shortness of breath, intense gastro pains that lasted months.
My doctors ignored my reactions from the first injection and unbelievably recommended a second shot! They said it was needed to be safe. I took the second Moderna injection in June 2021; I got dizzy right away. Two days after the second injection, I could not get out of bed for couple days as my right leg and arm were weak; I developed facial paralysis and migraines. My eyesight became fuzzy. I was dizzy and confused. I had no choice but to stay down.
It has been about 21 months post reaction to the injections; I still deal with daily fatigue, dizziness, memory problems, nerve and joint pains, burning of skin, numbness, ringing of the ears, headaches, and tingling sensations in my body. My face droops. My right hand tremors. These injections have badly harmed my daily life, my family, my work, and my health. They have taken me away from everything that made my life happy and fulfilling. So far, no effective treatments have been found to help me. I have seen numerous specialists; tried special diets and supplements. There is no path of improvement. No one knows if I will ever get better. This makes me feel really helpless and hopeless sometimes.
Since the injections I have been diagnosed with dysautonomia, small fiber neuropathy, mast cell activation. I am unable to do the most basic tasks, including driving. The effects of these shots are so extreme and never-ending.
