Shelley King

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

Normal. I had no health issues. I exercise regularly and honestly never depended on traditional medicine unless emergency use was needed.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I recieved one dose of the Moderna vaccine and initially had the expected symptoms. I had a sore arm and headache for the first day. About three days later, I noticed that my heart rate was up. It wasn’t racing but my resting heart rate jumped like 10 beats per minute. The next day, I started having numbness in my left side and difficultly breathing. It felt like I had to yawn to get a good breath. I had surges of hotness in my left foot. Over the course of the next week, we ruled out myocarditis, pericarditis, and blood clots. I received several x rays and ultra sounds but no one could explain what was happening and I was told to wait. It’s been 10 months and my heart rate has finally started to go down(it’s about 67-historically it was 60). I still have trouble catching a big breath sometimes. I’ve taken several breathing tests all which come back with me having some obstruction in the airway breathing out. My other numbers are phenomenal but my exhale numbers were below average. They did go up a little this past trip.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I’ve been running, taking out toxic products from my home, sauna, done some elimination diets, and started taking herbs that are designed to help with respiratory issues. I’ve been taking those since January.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Anxiety meds. I went on them because I was losing my mind hardly believing this was happening to me, and they were helpful in that way-to get me to a place where I could focus on living and healing….but not helpful for my actual symptoms.

What would you like others to know?

That this is happening. It’s real, and that all the reactions don’t look like people dying or life altering debilitation, but even small injuries that you might not even notice I’ve taken a toll on the quality of my life given that there’s such an unknown of what’s happening in my body.
