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

I was an RN. I worked full time. I was very active with hiking and canoeing. I led yoga classes weekly.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

On 8/28/2021 i began having calf pain and cramping in both legs. Within a few days i had numbness and pins and needles feeling that went from my feet up my legs and also in my hands and arms. My pain management dr referred me to neurologist and i was diagnosed with cerebellar ataxia. This all occurred after the second shot on 9/23/2021. I had problems with balance and vertigo. I now have to use a cane or walker to get around. I also developed double vision which has been corrected by prisms in my glasses lenses. These symptoms of paresthesias, balance issues, burning feeling in my head and feeling of been in a fog has continued to today. i have had numerous dr visits neurologist, hematologist, opthalmologist.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

PT and OT helped to give me tools to help with balance and double vision. I had to stop this therapy as my payment would be 1,500$ because of my insurance. I am several supplements which are helping. cardio Miracle, NATC, Nattopine, Inflammatone, Algae Omega, Probiotics, Toxex, B12 injections monthy, and B12 oral medication. I was also was put on gluten-free diet which helps my gut issues.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Savella prescribed by pain management dr. Most drs have no idea what to try to help me.

What would you like others to know?

I am not antivaccine, but it is not safe for everyone. I have autoimmune disorder of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and i was concerned about reaction to the vaccine. I was told all my doctors, and friends who were ARNPs and DRs and was told it was safe and effective. I tried to be the " patriot" and now it seems my government is ignoring me and the many like me who are suffering from this.
