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

Pretty normal; reasonable active

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I started having heart arrhythmias on 1/17; Moderna lot 03L20A/20' 1/21. rapid heart beat 2/7; heart flutter for 5 secs 2/12;

I did not associate this with the shot until almost a year later

2/12 Had second Moderna shot Lot 043L20A had heart arrhythmia 2/15; 2/16 off and on;2/17woke up at 3 am with heart arrhythmia; 2/18 heart arrhythmia;[ 2/22; 2/24 ; 2/25 heart palpitations--I took a recording on these two dates on either my watch or my Emay portable ECG monitor and it said I had atrial fabulation on these days; the other times I checked it said sinus rhythm ]; 3/14 arrhythmias, 2/15; 3/17; 4/18 heart palpitations

4/29 had echo cardiogram

5/3 holter monitor

5/3 arrhythmia; 5/9 arrhythmia in am; 5/11 arrhythmia;

recorded something I labeled AVG--I think that is heart palpitations on 5/20;5/21;5/22; 5/23;5/24;5/26

tests found left ventricular hypertrophy and a possible infarction; but the latter shows up on a test in 2018 and the dr said I don't show any heart damage so may be just the way I test.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I did not associate an of this until much later when I heard Dr. Malone say he had heart arrhythmias after his shot. I had had a couple of episodes of arrhythmias after I finished chemotherapy for breast cancer in 2018; and I have had heart palpitations every now and then for many years and wrote it off to nerves; I was put on an anti-depressant by my dr in 2020 and it is known to cause anxiety [!}; so I stopped taking it and that calmed me down a bit. I was fed up with all of this and looked up heart palpitations on amazon and found a book about them, which advised taking relora; I took relora and it really helped; read a review of relora by someone who also recommended motherwort and Hawthorne extract--I took them both and NO MORE HEART ARRHYTHMIAS!!!! I also take the homeopathic tables by Hyland called Calm Forté. I still get occasional heart palpitations but have not had any more heart arrhythmias since starting with these supplements. I have to be very careful with any stimulants such as caffeine, chocolate, and even my thyroid medication. Updated to add that: I started taking ivermectin in November 2021 and have been taking it. prophylactically ever since--twice a week 20 mg. I am one of the few people I know who has not come down with any variation of covid.

Which solutions were not helpful?

My doctors! I have tried to let my pcp know that my heart arrhythmias were related to the vax, but absolutely no interest whatsoever. This is at UCSD--where I also got my shots.

What would you like others to know?

That I got help from relora, motherwort and Hawthorne extract; stopped my heart arrhythmias. I have heard of several women of different ages dying suddenly from heart arrhythmias and I feel very lucky to be alive. As I said, I had no idea they were connected to the vax, just thought it was me being nervous; but after listening to Dr. Malone, I checked my 2021 calendar and sure enough, they started right after my first shot and were worse after the second shot; luckily I kept track of them because I was trying to see if there was any particular pattern for my own edification. I am 77. I would like to find out from a health care professional if I am ok or should I be under a specialist's care--like a cardiologist who understands the situation and won't dismiss me. I went to a dermatologist who told me she had the same symptoms after her shots. She said she made a VAERS report and the CDC called her and said they would call her again, but no word from them in over a year. She took down the names of the supplements I took.
