Keith Miller

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

I worked as much as I could 50 to 60 hours a week I've always been that way a bit of a workaholic.I joked all the time and laughed and had fun.I worked out regularly I went for hikes went fishing motorcycle riding I'd go camping go out with friends regularly. Spend as much time with my beautiful wife as I can just care free and happy doing great.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

After receiving the vaccination the following day I felt the normal expected symptoms flu like achy fever not too bad really. Later on that night I had debilitating back pain it made me incapable of walking without assistance or a walker for about a week. Shortly after that I started to feel like I was doing moderately well but within a week or 2 I ended up passing out and had heart palpitations. The ER said I had anxiety gave me some medicine and sent me on my way. I thought I wasOK for a little while after having those issues then I contracted covid and started having much much worse symptoms. I Now have numbness in multiple consistant and inconsistent places in my body I have high blood pressure I have hard heart palpitations I have internal tremors. My kidneys at one point were at 50%. Have tinnitus that comes and goes. All of which I never had before the vaccine and covid.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Nothing's really gotten better other than my kidneys got up to around 70 to 80% last time they were looked at but I stopped taking any kind of supplements or caffeine or anything that would interfere with them. A better diet seems to help somewhat and they now have me on blood pressure medication metoprolol. They also have me on gabapentin. Those things have made days mostly bearable but it's still very difficult.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Really only been getting any kind of real help with a primary care physician that I've just started seeing recently but most of the doctors I see say that I'm OK according to my tests so I really don't have a lot of solutions that were or weren't helpful.

What would you like others to know?

You are not crazy don't let them tell you that it's just anxiety or that it's in your head just because it's something new that they don't understand.. Get help reach out to people these seem to be the only things that have helped at all. Don't be afraid to reach out to mental health therapists. You may not be crazy but this is very taxing on your mind as well as your body. Also meditation can be helpful it's not going to fix your physical symptoms but at least it helps you to keep your mind in a very good place.
