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

I was healthy and active. Although I have hypothyroidism and migraines, I had those symptoms under control. After the Pfizer vaccine, I thought I was fine. About 2 weeks later, I started experiencing electric shocks in the arm that I received the vaccine in. I didn’t think it was related to the vaccine and I got the 2nd dose and my symptoms increase with nerve pain in my arms and legs. My neurologist didn’t know what was happening. It’s been almost 2 years and I’m still exonerate pain and tinnitus. The symptoms have been a bit better but they do get worse from time to time.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Nerve pain in the arms and legs. Sometimes the face.


Brain fog


Heart palpitations

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Ibuprofen Gabapentin Ice packs

Which solutions were not helpful?

I haven’t tried too many options. Doctors aren’t sore what to do.

What would you like others to know?

These symptoms are real and have impacted my life in a negative way. This needs to be researched and solutions need to be developed for people that are suffering.
