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

My life was great, I just had my second second a few months prior. I was getting back into shape and enrolled into school to continue my education.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

The day of, I felt awful. Pain all over my body, a metallic taste in my mouth. I had brain zaps, chest pain and muscle twitching, and horrible headaces.

I went to the ER a couple weeks after for the chest pain was continued and my left side where I got the vaccine was numb. I had parathesisa that would not go away as well.

It was brushed of as anxiety and no one helped me.

Two months later. These feelings linger. With added ear pain and pressure, headaces, my vision was really blurry, and felt dissociated. I also got adrenaline dumps that made me fear of death every day. I went to the hospital once again and they basically called me crazy.

Month 4, these symptoms continue but now with added electric shock feeling in my shoulder, jaw, and chest. I go see a neurologist who ordered me a MRI of my brain. The results found Demyelination so I had a spinal tap done a Month later to rule out MS. My spinal fluid was clear, but my ANA test revealed it was postive for autoimmune disease.

Months 5- 6 I have lingering leg pressure and pain along with the other symptoms I already stated plus on going tinnitus.

I am on month 10 now and the lingering symptoms I have now are ear pressure/pain, my heart races I'f I eat certain foods, I have constant brain fog, chest pain that comes and goes, GI issues, tinnitus, and my vison has gotten worse. I'm still to scared to work out so my quality of life is diminished as well.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

My neurologist gave me prescription for gabapentin. That helped with the nerve issues and electric shock feeling. She also upped my b12 to 1000 mg a day. I take a vitamin d3, daily vitamin, cranberry with vitamin c, a probiotic, and I take CBD / THC tincure everyday 3x daily.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Hospital visits. They only lead to disappointment and ridicule.
