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

Normal, I was able to work as much as 60 hrs a week without being tired or fatigued/in physical pain

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Wishing 15 minutes of my shot I could feel a tightening in my upper body moving from right to left, I started getting what felt like a sinus headache and some muscle spasms. As time has gone by, the symptoms changed and migrated to other areas of my body.. I don’t think there’s a place that hasn’t been affected.. pins and needles/burning sensations in my hands , feet, lower legs, fatigue and muscle pain burning sensations in my ears, cognitive issues.. it’s been Overwhelming ! The first week I lost so much strength in my right hand, I couldn’t open a water bottle and would drop items I was holding.:( my life has changed so dramatically. I can’t string days together to work . I need substantial recovery time after I do work. I fear I may not be able to sustain supporting myself and eventually just giving in to depression to the point of giving up.. it’s been brutal.. I’ve been gaslit by Drs, they pretend like they didn’t hear me say that it was after my vax shot, they won’t even entertain the idea.. I’ve been told “you’re getting older”!!! I went from working 60 hrs to unable to last 4hrs during a day!! Like a light switch was thrown! It’s so infuriating to be gas lit like that constantly, not to mention being called an alarmist or anti vaxxer and have people wish death on you for speaking out on social media.. just trying to find people who are going through similar things and find answers to try to reclaim my life..

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms
