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

Healthy 55-year-old pilot. Outdoor active year-round. Very capable of doing almost anything.

***It should be noted that the above vaccination date is estimated as I did not have the actual information available at the time of this submission. I received the second dose a month later.***

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Started with wrist pain in left wrist. Then right wrist. Then mild pain in joints. Starting sleeping in wrist braces, and over the summer the pain level steadily increased. I started having weird symptoms and debilitating migrating pain all over my body. Affected left hip, right knee, shoulders arms and legs.

By the fall, I was severely restricted in what I could do. My local doctors could only find slight levels of increased inflammation and could not understand what may have been the cause. Even though two blood tests came back negative, I was treated for lymes disease. By Thanksgiving I had been praying to die for 3 weeks strait every waking moment and was in severe pain in every muscle and joint in my body. I was basically wheelchair bound when my wife drove me to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I was diagnosed with ANCA Vasculitis with renal involvement. My doctors were reluctant to attribute the vaccine to the vasculitis, but said the disease usually presents itself after a major infection, of which I did not experience. Also, the body response to attacking the B proteins that my body suddenly recognized is too much of a coincidence to ignore.

This disease is incurable and had caused a 60 percent damage to my kidneys and has left me generally weak with constant low-grade pain everywhere in my body. I now require lifelong infusions of Rituximab about every 4 months to continue to knock down my immune system to prevent it from killing me. My life expectancy is certainly in question.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Initial treatments of anti-biotics and a short course of prednisone.

What would you like others to know?

Just the truth of how much harm this has caused so many people worldwide. It took my ability to fly for a living and will likely take 20-30 years off my life. I'm a believer and can't wait to meet my Savior. I am not looking to sue anyone, but would sure like to see the doctors start to be honest about this crime against humanity that was the entire COVID pandemic and vaccination response.
