D.J. – B.C.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.



Healthy, fit, 39 year old female; no medical issues. ​

1st moderna shot;

following day: Sore arm, tired.. nothing unusual

5 weeks 1 day later; lower left eyelid twitch began.. ongoing, not intermittent.

2nd moderna shot (8 weeks after first)

following day: Sore arm, tired.. similar to first round.

48 hours later: woke up unable to walk or stand due to extreme lower back pain. Taken to hospital to find out I had adverse reaction to Moderna. Extreme inflammatory response in heart and lower spinal cord. I was able to slowly, very slowly walk. within 12 days I could drive and sit again. 20 days I was back to full mobility - but body still overreacting to inflammation in body; period, allergies, etc.

5 weeks 2 days after 2nd shot: my other eye began twitching, along with other random muscle spasms.

eye twitches (haven't stopped since 1st shot, ongoing all day every day), and random muscle spasms still continue 6 weeks after my 2nd shot... here's hoping they resolve. I'm starting to get worried!
