Eric Johnson

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

Pretty good shape for someone pushing 50. Lifted weights 4x weekly. No known health issues except elevated cholesterol.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

First reaction was paresthesia in my lower legs and feet for a few days in early August of ‘21… about 3 months after the vaccine. I didn’t think much of it as it resolved on its own. In early October it happened again, except this time it did not go away. It progressed over the next few weeks over much of my upper body as well. I had heavy legs and fatigue this time as well. Muscle spasms began in Nov ‘21 also. New symptoms started throughout winter and into spring. I had internal vibrations in my head and neck, insomnia, dysautonomia, numbness and tingling in my face. Elevated blood pressure and tachycardia mixed in also. For the month of April ‘22 I was mostly bed/couch ridden as I had the worst fatigue I’ve ever experienced and my body was stuck in fight/flight mode with panic attacks. Finally in June some of the more severe symptoms let up. I still mostly struggle with fatigue periodically and paresthesia in my lower legs and feet, also comes and goes in severity. This has been a rough year, with EMG test, MRI’s, blood draws, lumbar puncture all showing nothing. It wasn’t until about 3-4 months into the journey that I was sure it was the vaccine that caused my symptoms. So much for transparency from the vaccines manufacturers. It’s only been through React19 and groups of fellow sufferers that I’ve found any information.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I’ve been taking Cymbalta, zyrtec, plavix, pravastatin since early May. Also done 10 sessions of hard shell HBOT and intermittent fasting for several months.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Multiple supplements that did not seem to have any effect.

What would you like others to know?

The severe adverse reactions to this vaccine are neither being publicized or even acknowledged at this point. We need to reevaluate if the risks these products pose are worth any benefit. Really think long and hard before taking any boosters or giving this to your child. Read and watch some of the stories of those who have been injured. You may decide to move forward, but at least you’ll have the benefit of knowing the risks… what all of the early injured did not get.
