What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
I was a successful sports therapist, a mum to two adult sons and I had a very fulfilling life with my partner of 13 years. I enjoyed hiking, going to the gym, walking my dogs, being with my family and travelling the world. I was happy and healthy

Describe your Symptoms and the timeline of your reaction: After my first vaccine in February, I had 3-4 days of flu like symptoms then lingering fatigue and menstrual changes. After investigation, this was thought to be subclinical hypothyroidism. I had my second vaccine and that’s when my ongoing symptoms started. I woke up one day with completely numb hands and feet, I felt nauseous, I had a weird electrical buzz type feeling throughout my body. Over the coming weeks this intensified, I had permanent essential tremor in both arms, paresthesia, I felt unbalanced and became slightly incontinent. The head pressure started which felt like I had a swim cap on constantly, I had pulsatile Tinnitus, I started to slur my speech now and then and I had extreme brain fog. I completely lost my appetite and the weight fell off me quite quickly, I was in bed most days. I had Extreme vertigo, blood pooling and tachycardia start which I now know is part of dysautonomia. Pressure built in my chest and if I stood up too long it would radiate through to my back and my jaw. Other symptoms that I experience are : Muscle twitching Muscle cramping Post exertion malaise Nystagmus Dyspnea Tremors Bruising Nail fold hemorrhage Bulging veins Stomach pain Bone pain Extreme fatigue/CFS Nerve pain Feeling like I can't swallow properly Adrenaline dumps at night
