Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

"I was unable to even pick up a glass of water. I was disabled".

Giovanna T

Lucca LU, Italia

Describe your Symptoms and the timeline of your reaction.: After one week I started having symmetric pain in my wrists, fingers and neck. And in a few weeks the pain involved also shoulders, jaw, elbow and knees. In July I was diagnosed with arthritis and in august I was unable to even pick up a glass of water. I was disabled.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

 Medrol (Methylprednisolone) helped to relieve the symptoms but brought other problems such as higher glycemia and hypertension from time to time. Therefore I have to find alternative solutions.

Which solutions were not helpful?

 Anti-inflammatory treatment and ibuprofen were not helpful

What would you like others to know?

 I would like others to know that in Italy it is very difficult to find a doctor who freely admit that there is a relation between the vaccination and the adverse reactions. It's a sort of barrier that is very difficult to overcome.
