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

I was a very active person, was the director of a non profit, working with street children, I had different jobs, worked as a marketing coordinator in a family business, in my free time I was a music and an english teacher. I used to swim and exercise, I used to sing and play the piano. I used to hang out with friends.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

The day I got vaccinated I got fever and the normal body pain, as many other people did, on the third day of the vaccine I started with symptoms like a flu, that lasted for 3 days, then I started with weakness, walking very slow, until one day I could barely move my legs. The first month after the vaccine, my symptoms where weakness, there were times where I could barely hold a spoon, one day I could get up from my bed, I hardly walked. As time went by, other symptoms arrived such as: migraines, burning legs, tingling in mi hands and feet, brain fog, the right side of my body has less sensitivity and is weaker than the left side, also I am always very tired. Body pain and walking slow continued. Most of the times my hands hurt. I am very sensitive to light and sounds. Most symptoms come and go, and stress or some emotions triggers them.
