What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
After I got my second shot of Moderna, within 48 hours I began feeling stinging and burning sensations in my feet. This progressively got worst. Fatigue and achiness in my shoulders and fingers began to develop. The shoulder pain is subsiding but is now moved to my elbows. I also notice that my short term immediate memory is out of focus and it is difficult for me to stay focused on something I was just thinking about. After consulting a Neurologist though referrals, he diagnosed me with Small Cell Neuropathy. None if these doctors will confirm any correlation between my diagnosis and the vaccine. His treatment plan is diet and exercise to slow the progression and that I am stuck with it for the rest of my life. Regarding pain management, I am currently taking 900mg per day of Gabapentin. This at least allows me to go about my day in not as much pain and discomfort. Not sure what the future will bring.
