What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I received the first Moderna Covid vaccine on 1/15/21 and registered for the V-Safe study. I did not have any reaction to the vaccine, other than a sore arm. Received the second Moderna vaccine on 2/10/21 and again had no reaction to the vaccine, other than a sore arm. On April 1st I woke up with severe pain in my lower back and both hips. I had lost my range of motion and could no longer bend over. There was no incident or injury to cause these symptoms. My hip joints felt like bone rubbing on bone and my lower back was stiff as if I had arthritis (which I never had before) and I was in excruciating pain. I felt like I had aged over night and had arthritis in my joints. When my symptoms didn't improve after several months, I followed up with my primary care physician and she ordered x-rays of my spine and hips. The x-rays did not reveal anything. After one year of pain and no improvement, I went back to my primary care physician in May, 2022 and had an MRI which revealed a diagnosis of spinal stenosis. She referred me to an orthopedic surgeon in June, 2022, who referred me to a chiropractor.
