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

Pretty normal. I had knee osteoarthritis for which I took sunbisc injections

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I developed irregular heartbeat about a month or so after the third vaccination but tried to ignore it. One night I felt like I was having a heart attack and immediately saw a cardiologist. All rests were normal although Holster monitor revealed some irregularities a few times.

About 3/4 months after the vaccine, I started to have increased pain in my knees, neck, back, hips, shoulders, There was a general body pain that refused to go. It got so bad after my regular walking exercises that I quit.

Then I had muscle weakness all over, I could feel my muscles hanging on my body.

It became very hard for me to get up from sitting position.Alarmed, I saw a neurologist.MRI ruled out Polymyositis but confirmed bilateral hip osteoarthritis. I still have severe pains in my left hip

The rheumatologist ordered a full panned of antibiotics which were negative

She put me on low dose prednisone which seems to be helping

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

NSAID Prednisone

Which solutions were not helpful?
