What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
As I received my first and only dose, I had intense pain in my ear on the same side of the injection arm. Two hours later, my eye I'd had a bleed in a few months before, suddenly flared up. It was very red both inside the eye and outside also very itchy and sore. I had to have treatment with eye drops.
On the second day, I woke up with terrible upper abdominal pain, which lasted over 2 days, plus started having palpitations while lying down.
I was sent for an echo cardiogram and ECG, luckily that was ok, but I still have palpitations now. I had a endoscopy, which showed severe inflammation through my digestive system.
I was treated with PPI meds, but had to stop because of side effects, was put on a special diet by a dietician, the symptoms have eased, as long as I'm pretty rigid with my diet and don't regress too much. I'm also under the care of a gastroenterologist.
I also have enlarged lymph nodes in the axilla of the arm of the injection site, which are still enlarged, so I have to have an ultrasound every couple of months to check how they are and 3 weeks ago, I'm starting to have problems with my fingers swelling on the same arm.
