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

My life was normal. I was extremely healthy for 68. I took no Pharmaceutical drugs for any problems pertaining to my mind or body. I was happy. Ate anything w/o reaction. Nothing hurt me. I was not Allergic to anything that I would put on my body. I got worse w/ each VAX.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

UV therapy maybe 37 treatments I take 7 Anti-histamines a day H1&H2 12 vitamins & supplements like NAC For 14 months now. I filled out papers for Pfizer 4 times. Maybe massage , acupuncture & sitting in cool water. Sleep if I can w/o itching. Acknowledgment from doctors that this is a reaction from the vaccine.

Which solutions were not helpful?

The stress of the cost of treatments Prednisone. Triaminicin cream All the other creams at the dermatologist gave me that have PEG in them. Low histamine diet It’s hard to say if anything helps that I’ve tried.

What would you like others to know?

This is a VAX reaction. I was pro-VAX & would rather be in Solitary consignment then have another VAX to make me worse. I grew up in the restaurant business food is my life I love trying new things I travel the world doing this. Now I can do nothing. It makes me extremely sad. My body is getting stiff because exercise also makes me react.
