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

I am a physical therapist and I was active in the CrossFit community… gym was my life 6 days a week. I also snowboarded and I hike a lot with my 130 Mastiff.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Day of the shot I got the typical flu like symptoms later that night… then a rash broke out down my left arm, numbness and tingling in the hand and pain from neck down the arm… severe swelling in all my lymph nodes in my axilla and neck… I couldn’t get out of bed for a week and life has not been the same since… by happen stance I had blood drawn before and after my vaccine and my kidney function was declined… natural path just wanted to watch it… then I got shingles … kidney function declined further. She put me on a vaccine detox protocol she found … with that and high dose vitamin C iV drips every week I seemed to improve… came of the IV and numbers tanked again for kidney function… so back on it I went and numbers improved… but In this time my performance at the gym has tanked. I thought it was because I was trying to take it easy on my body but it doesn’t seem to be the case because cramping with exercise followed by weakness and shaking and noodle legs are a standard after exercise… even easy ex… my tolerance to daily life just seems to be getting worse… I shake working , I have to hold the rails coming down stairs… a year prior to my vaccine I was deadlift 285, back squatting 235 , overhead squatting 140… I can barely get myself up some days… my mental health seems to have declined as well… depression has set in and not just being upset about this but a dark feeling … so odd… it’s not me… this isn’t me. Now I have a reactivated case of EBV … and have multiple outbreaks of herpes/ or the shingles . To be honest it feels like I’m being eaten from the inside out… I’m just turning to mush… I don’t know what to do at this point.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

High dose vitamin C IVs

Which solutions were not helpful?

At this stage nothing seems to be stopping the slow deterioration I’m experiencing.

What would you like others to know?

Please don’t take the risk of this unhelpful vaccine… your just as at risk for injury with the vaccine as you are with COVID
