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

Healthy fitness trainer! I was a gym owner for 13 years and a personal trainer for 25 years. Before then, I was a professional dancer. I know my body. I was happy and very active. I had just gotten married the previous year and we were looking forward to traveling etc.. I had a very joyful life. I also am s meditation teacher and to lose my silence completely changed my life. I was unable to function

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

April 9th I had debilitating tinnitus. I literally felt an alarm was going off in my brain. Not only did I have a loud almost dealing alarm sound, I had a sizzling sound, various tones all at the same time. I also had hyper acoustic where even the sound of a shower or a fork on a plate was painful. The pressure in my ears felt like I was coming down from an airplane . Ear fullness like fluid too. Besides all these debilitating and life altering ear issues, I had diahrhea, vomiting, my legs felt like they couldn’t walk. My body was shaking uncontrollably. My mind could not work properly. I lost 12 pounds in 15 days. I thought I was dying. And with the excruciating tinnitus I could not live with that. I also became claustrophobic. My ears felt pressure like coming down from an airplane ETD, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, anxiety, vision and dry eye , could not sweat, low blood pressure , my legs felt like I was walking in mud I could barely move them and I lost 12 pounds in 15 days. My body went completely debilitated. It was horrible.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

After attempting several drugs and vitamin and Accupunture, homeopathic the only thing that began to turn my symptoms around was Lamictal which is used as a nerve stabilizer. A neurologist thought my brain had inflammation which had effected my vestibular nerves. Once on this medicine my symptoms began to subside. I’m still left with tinnitus and ear pressure. Updated to add: The only thing that helped was Lamictal given to me by a neurologist 6 months after all that suffering. That calmed my body and even lowered the sound of my tinnitus. I am on a dosage that my neurologist gives to people that is for severe brain issues.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Everything else I tried which included natural and pharmaceutical. Mainly any anti anxiety medicine. It worked completely the opposite.

What would you like others to know?

Don’t just jump in and take something without truly knowing the possible side effects. We are people not experiments. Also that the medical community must address us. Not to gaslight us, but to be very concerned and act immediately to help.
