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

Happy healthy wife and mother 🙂 Absolutely zero medical problems. Not even an earache before in my life. Also I always fell asleep right when my head hits the pillow. Never had a problem sleeping.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Extreme insomnia starting first night of 2nd dose of Pfizer. Pins and needles feeling in my hands and feet. Extreme anxiety and panic attacks. A week later tinnitus started.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Really I think just time. My anxiety is under control and tinnitus I feel I have adapted to. I still have to take sleeping medication to get sleep. I feel actually lucky that my reaction wasn’t as severe as others.
