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

I was in good health prior to the vaccines and booster I received.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

After receiving the vaccines I started having a myriad of symptoms and told my primary doctor that I felt as if my body was going haywire. I experienced excruciating and dibilitating bilateral leg cramps and bilateral excruciating painful hand and wrist pain with numbness and tingling in my hands at night. The pain and tingling was excruciating and would wake me throughout the night. I have pain in my left arm since the first vaccine that has not gone away. As my symptoms were not getting better my primary doctor sent me to a rheumatologist. That doctor ordered blood tests that showed that I have drug-induced Lupus. I did not and do not take any medication that is on the extensive list of medications that cause this disease. Despite the fact that I took the vaccine (2 Pfizer) and a booster (Moderna) I contracted Covid19 from a family member. Since my diagnosis I have been losing hair at an alarming rate. I continue to have Positive ANA blood work.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I changed my diet to a whole food plant based diet and I feel better overall. I started taking Fulvic Minerals and various vitamin supplements. I rarely have the hand pain, numbness and tingling. I still get leg and toe cramping.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I'm unsure.
