Vaccine Injury of Cynthia Jones

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

I was fit and active, swimming 3 times a week, kayaking, travelling and socializing with friends.
I lead a very fulfilling life.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

23 September 2021 - Pfizer - Adverse reaction: drooping left side of face until morning, and extreme stabbing pain in left side of head, back. Unable to get out of bed for 3 days.

14 October 2021: Pfizer - extreme stabbing pain in left side of head, back.

28 October 2021: Collapsed at work with chest pain, yellow jaundice, headaches, dizziness, and chronic fatigue. Lots of tests done, but nothing found other than low iron.

October 2021: Had to stop driving on the freeway due to my eye muscles not keeping up with high moving speeds around me.

8 November 2021: Iron Infusion – reaction chest pain, CT scans done, nothing found.

11 November 21: EBV positive, chest pain turned out to be enlarged spleen. My liver and kidneys were also affected. Had two weeks of work, and returned to work as I was told I had EBV a few months ago, and I should be getting better as long as I had 3000 mg of Vitamin C and 3 litres of water every day. That has been my only medication for the past 2 1/2 years.

Nov 2022: The glad on the back of my head enlarged and was sore so I had a CT scan of my head, but nothing was found.

24 January 2022: 22: Moderna Spikevax

22 April 2022: 2022: Stabbing pain in the back of my head continued, and reported it to my doctor almost every fortnight. Dr Kingsford finally agreed to send me to an Ear, eye and throat specialist. He looked at me and said it as TMJ. Sent me for a hearing test and to see a physio.

30 May 2022: 22: Influenza Afuria Quad

17 Nov 2022: Moderna Spikevax Biv Ba1

June 22 – March 23: Head, neck and jaw physio specialist. Continued treatment with Dr for 10 months with some relief, but it kept triggering and coming back. Head Neck and Jaw Clinic specialist.

December 2022 – March 23: alternate weeks with Head, neck and jaw physio specialist was remedial massage therapist.

15 April 23: 23: Attended Emergency Department at hospital. My neck locked, extreme headache, and feeling of extreme pressure in my head. Lasted 15 hours, and was given painkillers and a slow-release anti-inflammatory needle. I was advised to get an MRI, but my doctor organised a CT scan because I couldn’t afford to pay for the MRI. Nothing was found in CT scan again.

May 2023: Tested positive for COVID. Spent 7 days in bed with severe symptoms.

4 Aug 2023: Menstrual cycle started again and I started to feel better. Chronic fatigue seemed to be dissipating. Other than the constant shooting pain in the back of my head (various pain thresholds throughout the day and night) I felt I had turned a corner

21 Aug 23: Chronic fatigue symptoms started again, progressively getting worse throughout the week.

28 Aug 2023: Chronic fatigue symptoms and brain fog increased and lasted all week again.

3 Sep 2023: Chronic fatigue symptoms increased and lasted all week again for the third consecutive week. Brain fog and concentration issues started again. Struggled to attend work and be productive.

4 Sep 2023: Menstrual cycle for second consecutive month, then it stopped again and hasn't returned in 2024.

15 September 2023: Woke up in the morning with blurry vision and extreme headache with feeling of pressure in my head. The type of pain and headache had changed to a feeling of extreme pressure and fullness over the entire left side of my head. Overall pain was now in the back, and left side of my head. I was unable to get up out of bed other than to go to the toilet or to eat. Slept most of the day and night as I couldn’t sit up. This lasted three days and the pain started to ease on 18/09/23.

8 September 2023: 23: Headache, feeling of pressure and fullness, and dizzy spells continued for the next nine days. I was in bed for a total of 12 days until 26/09/23 before the pain started to ease. It hurt more to lie down than sit up at this stage. So, I was in pain the entire time with a feeling of being very fragile. Two new symptoms appeared during that time, it hurt my forehead head when I tried to recall events or had to genuinely think about the answer to a question. A dull ringing in my left ear started and comes and goes now.

19 September 2023: Changed doctors for a second opinion.

21 Sep 2023: 23: MRI head

22 September 2023: Ultrasound glands on left side neck

September 2023: Thyroid hypothyroidism– Levoxine 50 daily to treat new symptom.

24 September 2023: Attended Emergency Department Redcliffe hospital with severe head pressure and headache. Was given pain killers via drip and spent the night in the short-stay unit. MRI results were discussed, and no sign of a tumor or stroke, but was advised to see my doctor for further results.

13 November 23: Appointment with Neurosurgeon. Injected both greater occipital nerves with Depo-Medrol 40mg and Lignocaine 1% without vasoconstrictor. Take 20 mg Endep daily until next review.

15 Nov 2023: 23 – Diagnosed with Lichen sclerosis. Eleuphrat ointment 0.05% 15mg twice per week.

January 24 – Had to stop taking Amitriptyline Viatris as it was making me sick, with extreme chronic fatigue, foggy brain, red glassy eyes and nauseous.

8 February 2023: 23 Bleeding inside my left eye ball. Filled up with blood slowly over 3 days.

16 February 2024 - Follow up appointment with
Neurosurgeon. Injected both greater occipital nerves with Depo-Medrol 40mg and Lignocaine 1% without vasoconstrictor. Pizotifen 0.5mg tablet to take daily until next review. (I haven’t started it yet)

8 March 2024: Positive for Influenza A

19 March 2024: Sore swollen knees with large lump on the back. Like a bakers cyst. Hard to stand up and walk. Was given Mobic for a few days to reduce the swelling. Rash on the top of my right thigh.

My Neurosurgeon is referring me to a colleague (neuropsychologist) for further treatment regarding the internal vibrations and other symptoms. (I’m still waiting for that referral, maybe I need to see my doctor, I’m not sure)

I have an appointment with a Biotoxin doctor in mid April 24

I trusted my doctor for 2 years, and no matter how many times I said the vaccine was making me worse, she would respond with "well you are so sick now, you can't catch COVID or you will end up in hospital as you are autoimmune compromised, and who knows what will happen to you" So she scared me into having 4 doses.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Keep getting second opinions and keep changing doctors until they listen.

Neurosurgeon. Injected both greater occipital nerves with Depo-Medrol 40mg and Lignocaine 1% without vasoconstrictor. This is the only reason I can get out of bed every day. Without this the stabbing pain in the back of my head takes over my life and I'm unable to function.

Which solutions were not helpful?

The doctors waiting to see what happens for another 3 or 6 months because they are unsure of my symptoms and what to do.
I'm still undiagnosed and no medicine or pain killers work, they only make me sicker.

What would you like others to know?

Don't give up, there are people all over the world suffering due to a COVID Vax injury. Some countries are more advanced in recognizing the issue, surely Australia and the rest of the world won't be able to deny it once it hits mainstream media.
