What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
1st shot: extremely sore arm, red, swollen, painful for at least a week. 2nd shot: knocked me off my feet. In bed for 24 hours. Felt like I had covid all over again. (Had had covid 4-5 months prior) also had a new symptom ...extremely dizzy. Following that began having one symptom after another which led me to one specialist after another. Each only knew 2 treat symptoms not injury. Ended up at Emory's covid long haulers clinic and basically told I would get better that it was going to take some time. Rather than get better I progressly got worse. 2 years later still suffering. I am working under the care of Dr. Pierre Kory. His team has been fabulous. Just praying they can un-do some of the damage that has been done.
