Tammy Gravis

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

I was the picture of health at 57. I walked four miles a day and wrote 5k words a day as a writer. I felt fantastic and loved my life. I had no pain and only took two medications. I went to the doctor once a year and got routine screenings. I drove anywhere I wanted to and always went to medical appts. to keep my body well. I traveled to many places across the country and enjoy life to the fullest. I went out to eat a couple times a month and shopping. I made $50k a year writing online and my mind was extremely sharp. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA with a B.S. Degree. I love my life.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Increased heart rate and diagnosed with tachycardia. I take medication for this and never did before the vaccine.

I can't taste but 25% of the food and have a metallic taste in my mouth.

Extreme fatigue all day regardless of how much I sleep. I try to sleep 11 hours a night to function for two hours in the morning.

Excruciating headaches that feel like my head will bust. I thought I had a stroke or brain tumor.

My mind is not right. I'm not as sharp and kind of in a daze a lot of time. I don't socialize with anyone.

Loss of motivation due to the sickness and extreme depression.

Stomach issues include belching all day, roaring in my stomach, pain and fullness.

Constant pain throughout my body in my joints down my neck and top of my back. It hurts when I take a hot shower.

Head feels heavy and like it weighs 100 lbs.

I have a hard time talking like I did and communication is difficult.

Lots of noise in my head, cracking and tinnitus.

Vision is much worse than before and I can't see that well.

Dry mouth all the time and a bad taste.

I have severe depression and anxiety. I have suicidal thoughts.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Sleep is the only thing that helps me.

Which solutions were not helpful?
