What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
When I woke up the day after my booster dose I felt sick, had vertigo and was breathless. The only symptoms I noticed after my first two doses was dizziness after standing, and a peculiar racing heart for no reason. However, the booster dose put me straight into intensive care, where they eventually fitted me with a permanent pacemaker to treat unexplained AV block 3.
A year later, I can tell you that this has been the worst year of my life and I'm amazed to still be alive. I've had intense vertigo for 8 months; head pressure for almost 12 months, where I've felt like I need to drill a hole in my skull; chest pressure/tightness, breathlessness, fatigue, exercise intolerance, dizziness, feeling like I'm going to faint. Probnp blood test was elevated in July, suggesting heart disease-all other tests normal including lumbar puncture and various MRIs.
