What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
The symptoms came out of nowhere on the night of May 20, 2021. I felt great pain in my chest like if was compressing. my heart was beating fast. I also felt dizzy and light-headed. I noticed that I had a hard time remembering things and it was hard for me to talk as I struggled or couldn't find the right words to use, so it can sometimes appear that I'm stuttering. I've lost my sense of balance, and sometimes (especially in the morning) I notice that I'm leaning to my right side when I stand up or walk. My heart would sometimes beat fast even when I'm not exercising. Every one in a while I feel a pain somewhere in my head that come and goes. I used to also have this weird feeling in the back of my head that felt like I had a weight there. I wasn't able to drive my car for the first month since my symptoms, and I wasn't able to exercise the way I used to without being completely out of breath. My symptoms has affected my sleep as well. I can no longer sleep on my back without experiencing sleep paralysis, and so I've been sleeping on my sides ever since. I'm in constant fatigue, both mentally and physically. Because of my memory problems, I have to right things down such as things I need to do because I might end up forgetting about them. It was also difficult for me to
read since I would forget things easily. Sometimes doing even the most minor of things can feel like a big excursion of energy. The chest pain only lasted for a few days, and now I'm able to drive my car. I've also been able to exercise much more properly than before. I'm also able to read things and retain much of what I've learned However, I still have all the other symptoms to this day.
