Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I have tried everything multiple doctors multiple treatments biopsies vitamins aqua chai machines pain medication. A cream helped calm them down from itching but then they calm down and then they get red again and raw and bleed I’ve tried UV treatments five dermatologist the stroke actually helped my liver believe it or not my liver enzymes went back to normal after the stroke but now dealing with all those side effects from the rear stroke

Which solutions were not helpful?

Everything that I explained that I tried nothing worked and on top of it I ended up having a massive stroke rare stroke called RCVS because of this I just want my life back I feel and I look like a monster I used to love to swim and I can’t do that anymore I love to tan I can’t do that anymore. I want to be able to take care of my family like I did before I can’t even take any RA meds anymore so now I have to suffer with what’s happening to my joints.

What would you like others to know?

That this vaccine is not safe for everybody and it can really Harm you and no one knows how to help you and treat you I have phenomenal doctors at top-notch hospitals and they don’t even know what to do to help me all they could do is put in my record that I’m allergic to Moderna They did tell me something important if you have side effects from this vaccine like I did you cannot take MiraLAX . There is no denying all my side effects happen from the vaccine even the hospital can’t deny that the only good that came out of it I was given exemptions for my boys not to get it. It’s been two years and I’m still dealing with all these sores all over my legs I love to swim and I can’t swim anymore they open up now I’m dealing with all the side effects from this stroke that I had I just want my life back!!!! If anyone has any suggestions on what would help take care of these sores .
