Patricia Mitchum

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

Very healthy and active. I go to the gym 4-5 days/ week and usually walk 3-5 miles per day.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Days after 2nd Pfizer


1 - day of injection - Covid rash from shoulder to elbow, pain and swelling

2 - First optical migraine of my life. Heart rate soared from my normal resting rate of 60 to 120 while at rest.

4- Muscle twitching and toes moving autonomously.

6 months after injection - Bloody vaginal discharge for 5 days. (I have been postmenopausal for over 15 years.

7 months after injection - hives and eczema

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

My GP suggested I see a neurologist. I made two appointments in June '21 and still waiting to see them. He also suggested an allergist. The allergist diagnosed me with eczema and prescribed Triamcinolone cream which has helped. I take Alpha Lipoic Acid for the muscle twitching which seems to have helped.
