What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I don't remember the exact dates of my vaccine. I lost my card. But I do know my first shot was around Feb and then they had me come back fory second shot around may. Anyways I thought I got away without any issues. Then I started noticing about couple weeks after my second shot that everytime I would lay down to sleep or just relax that my nasal passages would become inflamed and swell shut. I also noticed inflammation in my skin in certain places. I don't know if anything else is wrong with me. These are just the things I have noticed. My Dr. Keeps trying to tell me it's allergies because of the summer months. I have never been allergic to anything and here it is December and I still can't breath through my nose. I don't sleep well. The not being able to breathe through my nose has triggered anxiety because I get panicked at night trying to sleep like this. I feel like I get adrenaline fight or flight type responses to my emotional state due to the stress and panic of feeling like I am suffocating while trying to sleep. I sleep a solid 3 to 4 hours a night now also. Not sure if it's because my mouth gets dry and I have to wake up and drink water but I wake up not tired and ready to go at all times with little sleep. I don't get thirsty anymore either. Like body lost the ability to tell itself it needs fluid. Other than when my mouth gets dry from having to breath out of it all night. But throughout the day I will forget to drink all day long. I don't have that ability. I have trouble getting my bladder to release. Not sure if there is inflammation iny bladder causing this. My Dr. had an excuse for everything and thinks I am crazy when I bring up the fact that these things have all started after the vaccine. I feel hopeless thinking I will never be normal again. Nobody will listen to me. That makes this anxiety and panic attacks worse. I want this out of my body.
