What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
After my first shot I started to get restless legs, my sight went a bit blurry and my period became irregular. My GP was on holiday, so I went to a different doctor but she said I was probably in menopause, since I was 43 years old. And so I got my second shot in July. Things went very wrong very fast after that.
I got spasms, fasciculations, stuttering, muscle pain, joint pain, lost control over my blatter, terrible headaches, brainfog, blurry sights, diarrhea, concentration problems, tired all day, lost all my toe nails, dizzy, sleepless (due to pain and spasms), weight loss, felt like ants were crawling over my skin or someone was stucking needles in me, I felt nothing during sex (turned into a Sahara down under), lost coordination, tingling, lost taste and smell, got nightmares, irregalur periods, overstimulated, night sweats, forgetfull (Alzheimer light?) and loss of strength. I ended up with a half paralyzed left side and trembling like a vibrator on the ER 4 weeks later but was sent home since it was not 'life threatening'. My partner drove me to another ER but I was sent home again. I ended up with my GP early the next morning. He gave me a tranquilizer and concluded this was caused by the vaccine, since he had seen 4 other just like me after the jab and many videos from all over the world warning for exactly these problems (videos I hadn't found). Unfortunately, he did not know how to cure me. I was sent to the neurologist, who said I had a 'hypersensitive nerve system caused by the vaccine'. Apparently, this was not uncommon, happened after a lot of vaccines and should decline over time. So time passed and my symptoms did not decline. The neurologist suggested it might be FND or MS and did some extra testing. According the MRI I had brain and nerve damage. It might improve in 2 years but I should be aware some symptoms should never dissappear. Cause "unknown". Might have been myelitis transverna or GBS or neurosarcoidoses but it wasn't MS. I was sent home with this diagnosis. No help, support, medication, advice, help or anything. I started experimenting with supplements and workouts. Some symptoms disappeared and some got less intense. I had to give up my travel organization after all. I'm only able to work 50% on my IT work. I hardly have energy for a social life anymore. Some friends left because they think I'm crazy. I'm socially excluded because I do not have all 'voluntary' vaccines. For instance, I cannot travel to Canada to visit relatives because I didn't get a booster. My partner is struggling with 'the new me'. The thought of suicide has crossed my mind more than once.
I started a support group and soon 1500 people who were injured just like me asked for help. I guess I was still pretty naive at that time, I thought the world didn't know this could happen if you get vaxed. I wrote every member of government, health care organizations, research centers, authorities regarding vaccines and side effects, ombudsman, ema, pfizer, press, human rights organizations, etc. But they knew. They just didn't want anyone else to know. Still, we are silenced and don't get any help or support. In the famous words of Orwell: "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than other." And in this brave new world, you are less equal if you're a vaccine injured. You're just a minor inconvenience for the rich society who want to make more money over your dead or damaged body.
