What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
Post Covid-19 shot, I experienced the normal 12-18 hour period of general flu like symptoms. I experienced a severe head ache and the biggest inflammatory response...which gave me a feeling of heaviness that I could not shake for weeks. About 1 to 1.5 weeks went by and I felt that my right was swollen and had its own heart beat...strange sensations in the back of my right leg, leading to more swelling and a build up of pressure. A few days later I could not even walk on my right leg and was dragging my now very painful, pressured, and swollen right leg behind me, trying to walk. Upon visiting my doctor, I was DX with an achilles tendon and or planter fasciitis. This DX was perplexing to me, as I have had several sports injuries in my life and understood what that pain should feel like, beside the fact that I had not had any physical injury during this time period. I asked if it is possible that I had a blood clot? My doctor reacted by asking why I would think that I could have a blood clot. I stated that the only new thing in my life was the fact that I just got the shot...he did a D-dimer and it came back elevated...Ultrasound found a 5 inch blood clot in my right calf. My doctor admitted that "something" happened
to me and later stated that it could not have been anything but the COVID-19 vaccine that caused the DVT. Not
long after this DX, I began noticing leg and arm/hand and head tremors which parlayed into internal body tremors. My doctor thinks that it is Conversion Disorder. I asked for an MRI of my brain and was told that I have to go on Anxiety medication before I can be referred for MRI and Neurology appointment. I said no to med, but then ended up having to take it in order to see a Neurologist. Side effects from med made me sweat profusely, uncontrollable diarrhea and frequent urination. MRI came out "clear" and Neurologist says I have Movement Disorder and it may or may not get better or go away entirely. No follow up appointment needed!
