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

Male 72 years old, 5'8" 140 lbs., with excellent metabolic health eating low carb. At no time have I suspected a COVID infection. I've had three COVID antibody tests. Every serology test reported an absence of antibodies for nucleocapsid. My most recent antibody test was 10 months after the booster that injured me. It reported the spike antibody level at a very high 11,727 U/mL. I would have expected those antibodies to have declined but they don't seem to be going away.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

After that Oct Moderna booster I had 101.5 degree fever for a couple of days. When the fever broke temp went down to 96.5. When well I'm at 98.6. I had the same symptoms after my 2nd Moderna jab in Feb 2021. Five months after the 2nd jab temperature returned to my normal 98.6.

My poor thermoregulation remains today. In Feb of 2022 I began having GI issues with constipation. On March 1, 2022 I developed bad tinnitus which remains with rare periods of relief. I've always had normal BP but with the onset of tinnitus BP went to 165 over 100 and continued for 6 weeks. I had ER visits on 3-20-2022 and on 4-20-2022 complaining of dysautonomia and high BP. ER docs focused on BP and ignored dysautonomia.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

In late April 2022 I fasted for 3 days and for 3 days after the fast I had no tinnitus. The fast helped return my BP to normal but the tinnitus returned. After a 3 day fast in mid August 2022 I experienced 8 days of tinnitus relief. My supplements are 100mg nicotinic acid 3 daily, nattokinase, NAC, magnesium glycinate and vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C, D, and K2. I'm not certain that supplements have been all that helpful.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I went on another 3 day fast starting this month 9-20-2022 but it left me fatigued and feeling awful. After the fast I took blood measurements for the first time ever. I registered 3.0 for ketones and a very low 58 for blood glucose. I may need to be tested for adrenal insufficiency. I read that Long Covid victims, and the perhaps vaccine injured, test low on cortisol. Almost a year after my booster I continue to suffer dysautonomia with a bit of new fatigue, GI issues, tinnitus and poor thermoregulation. I tried to do everything right. I think that my injury is relatively mild compared to that suffered by most other vaccine victims.

What would you like others to know?

I think it helps to ditch sugar, starches, seed oils and all grains. Eat very low carb with lots of eggs real butter and meat. Pay attention to the effect each food item has on the way that you feel. Get your blood tested at least every 6 months. Keep up with new information using Twitter and YouTube. Evaluate everything and experiment with safe options that you think might be helpful. For those who are uninsured any anyone else. You can pay for Labcorp blood tests at reduced prices at
