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

Active, tan 3 miles everyday on my lunch break. Did not have constant pain, fatigue, and never felt any numbness in any of my limbs.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Starting in March of 2022 I started experiencing constant pain in my lower back and legs. I was unable to get relief with over the counter pain reliever, so I went to my PCP. He ordered lab work and tested me for an Auto Immune disease. My ANA TITER came back high. I began experiencing numbness in my arms and legs so my PCP ordered additional Auto Immune lab panel. I started experiencing brain fog every now and then. I was referred to a Rheumatologist who didn't seem concerned about my high ANA TITER and ordered one last lab test to rule out any Auto Immune disease. Rheumatology said it is common for people to have an ANA TITER and the patient be healthy.. These lab results came back normal and I was told I didn't need to see Rheumatology any longer but recommended that I go see a Neurologist. I had my first appt with Neirology yesterday and he was not able to determine anything from his physical exam. I have nerve testing scheduled for next month to ensure I do t have anything going on with my nerves. The Neurologist shared that he feels I should explore other Rheumatologts opinion due to how high my ANA TITER is. neurology stated this is not normal even though some people can have a positive ANA TITER mine was too high for that to be the case. I have always been healthy, I exercise regularly, I eat well and have no known disease throughout my family. I am 39 yes old and both of my parents are still living and healthy without any medical conditions.
