What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
20 min after vaccine my left eye began twitching constantly as I was driving home. I thought nothing of it and went to work the following day. That day my face felt numb on the left side and not right. I had not looked in a mirror but when I got home my daughter said there was something wrong with my face. I went to my GP who said it looked like Bell’s palsy and sent me to hospital. I was admitted and the following day my muscles began twitching. The consultant said that that was not normal but there was so much they did not know yet.
The twitching soon turned into spasms on my whole body that were frightening and very bad. The nurses put up the side bars on the bed and tried to calm me down. I tried to tell them That calming down made no difference as I completely had no control over them. They did not listen and the doctor did not come. I was like that for 90 min. I was calling my husband begging him to help me. Eventually a doctor came and gave me a Valium. The nurse said I was tachycardic. I passed out immediately. I was in hospital for 4 days but no medicine was given and the twitching calmed down a little but did not stop. My face was still bad and I begged for steroids as I googled that I should take them. A lovely doctor agreed and also prescribed more Valium to take home.
For the last 6 months I have had an irregular heart beat. The GP picked it up on a ECG and sent me to hospital. The GP said it was atrial fibrillation but the hospital were not sure. I feel this could be related as my heart was perfect when it was checked in 2020 but I doubt that will be confirmed. The heart beat issue is for several hours a day again in the evening .
