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

I was a strong, fit ex competitive bodybuilder and mma fighter. I easily worked 12 hour days in the hot sun and did 50 pull ups every other day as well as riding bike, jogging and swimming.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I had 3 vaccines. After the first one 3-13-2021 I did not notice anything significant. Next dose was4-10-2021. About 2 weeks, maybe less I passed out in my front yard after squaring down doing yard work, then standing up and walking towards my house. I'm not sure how long I was out but I remember subconsciously knowing if I couldn't force my self to breath and wake up I was going to die. So I did. Still did not realize this was vaccine related and got 3rd dose 8-31-2021. Then it all got real bad. Swollen feet, ankles and legs past my knees. I could no longer stand up after sitting for more than a couple minutes without struggling to stay conscious. I could no longer do any kind of work or chores, or play with my dogs. I can't go grocery shopping with out having to really force myself to go really slow and more times than not I must stop and just leave my cart and get to my car and go home with nothing because I get dizzy and disoriented and can't breath. My red blood cell count is very high and my blood is very thick. If I try to tie my shoes I nearly pass out.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Nothing has helped completely and my blood oxygen level stays between 79 and 85 all the time. I do manage to go to the store for groceries and I can tie my shoes but everything is still hard and I can't even think about running or lifting weights or working.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Going to the Dr. Has been a nightmare. I've been to 3 cardiologists that insist on doing a catheterization and placing a stint in my heart. They won't even consider the possibility that I'm suffering from myocarditis an adverse reaction from covid vaccine instead of a blockage.

What would you like others to know?

The reactions are real and life threatening. I still believe that the vaccine is a good thing and everyone should be vaccinated but the creators of the vaccine know that some people for whatever reason are going to have adverse effects. Instead of lying to everyone so everybody gets the shots they should tell the truth and take care of those suffering and struggling to survive.
