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

Normal, had a conversion to RNY on March 2, 2021. I was losing weight again. I was working out an hour a day. I was no longer throwing up due to Gerd.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

After my second shot in May of 2021, I could no longer keep eaten protein down. Then my body starting hurting all over. The fibromyalgia was out of remission. Then the weight lose stopped completely, even though I was barely eating, I have had constant headaches for over a year. The Hashimoto Thyroiditis has also come out of remission. Even though my dr has me on meds , there has been no change. I have gained 15 pounds. I am tired all the time. Just cooking wears me out. Tinnitus is really loud. I also have double vision that is only getting worse. Started with just signal lights while driving at night. Now all lights are doubled, the lines and divots in the road are double, all white lettering is doubled, stop signs are doubled, I can barely read what I am typing,

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Sleep, rest, has helped with the fibromyalgia. Heating pad has helped some.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Levothyroxine Sodium 50mg, 75mg, nor 100mg. Amitriptyline 50mg, nor 100mg. The 50mg before the vax was working for the tinnitus.
