What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I received my J&J Covid-19 Vaccine on April 7, 2021. I will NEVER forget that day, because that is the day that changed my life. It was at a local Walmart Pharmacy in Bayonne, NJ.
Six days later on April 13, 2021 I was rushed to the hospital by my boyfriend. I was in agony pain, screaming, crying, and yelling for the pain to stop. The left side of my chest, my left arm, and left leg were enflamed in pain.
When I got to the Emergency Room they did a whole work up of blood work, they did an X-Ray, and checked for a blood clot. The hospital diagnosed me with an enlarged heart, and my partial thromboplastin time result came back with an elevated marker. The hospital said that wasn't enough to keep me and sent me home with pain killers. This day was the beginning of it all.
Since I have been to the hospital eight times, and to doctors, and specialist a countless number of times at this point. I have lost faith in the medical system, because many ER doctors and specialist have turned me away saying I am having high anxiety, and that my symptoms are all in my head, and they've told me having side effects from the vaccine is extremely rare and that there was no way that it effected me in the way I was saying.
Within these two years I have experienced:
Extreme nerve pain in my limbs (arms & legs)
Extreme muscle spasms in my back
Extreme right side neck, head, back, and shoulder pain
severe eye pain behind the right eye
Severe abdominal pain on left side of body
chest pain (tightness, burning, sharp pains 24/7 - that I still have)
Feeling faint when standing for long periods of time
high heart rate
low blood pressure
Getting easily winded when I walk up stairs
feeling nauseous all the time, when my head hurts
pins & needs in my limbs
pain in my finger tips
I'm sure there are more symptoms I am missing.
*Neurologist - Occipital neuralgia, Trigeminal neuralgia, cervical Radiculopathy (Found by Cervical MRI scans)
*Cardiologist - Supraventricular Tachycardia, low blood pressure, high heart rate (Found by Holter Heart Monitor). I suspect I may also have Pericarditis because of the pain level I am feeling and how frequent.
Still need to be tested for POTS, Pericarditis and Myocarditis. I need to find the right doctors to test me for these. My current doctors unfortunately feel they need to look no further.
