Vaccine Injury of Debra Mitchell

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

I was a happy healthy wife, mother and grandma. I was working my dream job making $70,000 a year working from home doing what I loved. My husband and I were planning for retirement and traveling the Country in our RV.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

In January 2021 even though I worked from home, I was forced to get the Covid 19 vaccine in order to keep my job. I received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on 1/12/2021. Approximately on 1/17/2021 I started noticing a vibration in my right hip area when I looked down. It felt like a cell phone in my right pocket vibrating. My right jaw also locked and I was unable to open my mouth very wide. I thought I had a pinched nerve in my back, so I started seeing a chiropractor. I returned for follow up appointments for a few weeks with no help and then it came time for the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Approximately a week after I received the second dose of the vaccine, I started having numbness and tingling in both feet along with still having the vibration in my right hip area when I looked down. Over the next few weeks, the numbness and tingling in my feet moved all the way up my body and is now over my entire body including my face and head and has never gone away. Along with the numbness and tingling in my body, I also have a constant headache, eye issues (on my 3rd eyeglass perscription since I received the vaccine), balance issues, bladder/kidney issues, stomach/bowel issues, nauseated most days, weight loss, hair loss, strong electrical zaps randomly all over my body, memory issues, extreme fatigue and pain over entire body (muscles, joints, bones).
My life has changed completely. Not only did I lose the job that I loved, but I am also no longer able to be intimate with my husband because I cannot stand to be touched and it has greatly affected my marriage. I am currently 57 years old with two small grandbabies who I cannot watch by myself because I cannot stand and carry them. I have a 6-year-old grandson who does not understand why I can no longer jump on the trampoline with him. I've lost relationships I had with friends because I can no longer go and do the things I used to with them.
I can't find a doctor to help with anything and have been made to feel that I'm making up what I feel. I want to be healed so I can have my life back that I enjoyed before the vaccine.

What would you like others to know?

After reading some of the stories on this site and seeing and that other people are having the same type of issues as me and that I'm not crazy has been reassuring. I am thankful for this website and I'm hopeful that maybe someday I will be able to be cured and get my old life back.
