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

In good health I do have Hypermobile EDS

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I received my 2nd Pfizer shot at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville

The nurse administering my shot asked me if I had any reaction to first shot

I told I had tachycardia and low grade fever

She commented saying “we’ll let’s hope you don’t have a reaction to this shot”

I was told that I could leave immediately after getting the shot so I went to my car and started driving home after getting on the highway, roughly 20 minutes after my shot I felt a whooshing feeling with tingling in my face, trouble breathing and the most god awful head ache

I new I was plummeting fast

I pulled over and luckily there was a construction worker where I parked my car

I called him over and threw my phone to him

He called 911 and paramedics were with me in 10 minutes

In the ambulance I went into tachycardia and the AFibs and was exhibiting stroke like affects

They called the Mayo Er saying they were bringing back a patient who had just received the covid vaccine

In the ER I was treated with anaphylactic protocols and was told by the Dr that I had a reaction to the Pfizer vaccine and that I should not get another

covid shot but there is no mention of it in my medical chart or patient discharge paper

I suffered from the most intense headache in one area of my brain for 3 and a half months after

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Was treated for anaphylaxis with 40 minutes of reaction I am scared to think of what might have happened had I not received such quick treatment I’m certain that it would have been devastating as I was plummeting so quickly

What would you like others to know?

My husband suffered cardiac issues a few weeks after his 2nd Pfizer shot So did 3 other gentlemen in our neighborhood 2of them hospitalized Big coincidence I would like to see more transparency from the govt and pharmaceutical companies My son is an officer in the US space force and my other son is an Air Traffic Controller working for the FAA They are in good physical shape and should not be forced to take this experimental, harmful vaccine and it certainly should not be given to children
