What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
My most overwhelming symptom is severe myoclonic jerks. They happen every single night, without exception. I didn’t immediately correlate the jerks with the vaccine.
After I got the first Pfizer vaccine, I had 2 nights of jerks and then they went away. So, I thought nothing of them. Then, a week after getting the 2 vaccine, it was like a switch turned on and hasn’t shut off since. I’m now going on 13 straight months of myoclonic jerks. They’re so intense sometimes that they completely prevent me from sleeping, so I stay up for 48 hours straight.
I also noticed that I started breaking out in random rashes but, just on my hands and wrist areas. They last 15-20 minutes, then subside.
It seems now I also get rashes on the undersides of both my arms. This seems to occur as a reaction to be hot and sweating. I’ve never in my life experienced this.
The last most notable symptom is an overall lack of energy; this overwhelming sense of fatigue. Running and working out is so difficult now, and almost impossible at times. I forced myself to run a 5k in May and it was a big mistake. It took me an entire week for my body to recover.
