What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
My lymph node became swollen after my first shot. 9/2/21 I received my second shot. I was in bed sick for three days. My heart began racing and palpitating shortly after my second shot. I frequently had pain in my chest and pain in my left arm. I went to a cardiologist in Oct 21 and I was told the Armour Thyroid was causing my heart issues and was changed to Synthroid and put on Metoprolol. My heart rate has decreased but it's still higher than normal. I went to a different cardiologist in Nov 21 and was given a stress test which the dr said showed a blockage. I had a heart cath in Dec 21 and there was no blockage but I had fluid in my heart. The doctor put me on Lasix and said come back in 3 months. I went back and asked why the stress test showed a blockage but they didn't find one. He said the stress test was wrong. I told him I didn't think the Lasix was helping. He said 'then don't take it' and set an appointment for ONE YEAR LATER. I went to my GP because I lost my voice and was short of breath and he sent me to get D-dimer and MRI of lungs. Tests were normal so he sent me to a pulmonologist who said tests are normal go to ENT. ENT said tests are normal must be vocal chords go to speech therapist. Speech therapist said she didn't think it would help because she could see me gasping for air when I talk. I left there and found my current MD/Naturopath (Feb 22). She said I have myocarditis and I'm lucky the vax didn't kill me. I lose my voice when I have a reaction to something I'm sensitive to. I have brain fog and blurry vision occassionally.
I am getting better...baby steps.
