Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


I took the second dose back in February, I had some swelling of my lips, severe diarrhea, muscle aches, nausea, fever, and remember not being able to hold a conversation. I had unintentionally taken my second dose early as I was called by the county that the time limit between doses had been changed and I could come get my second shot at that time. I didn’t know I was agreeing to taking it 12 days earlier than I should have with only 16 days between my first and second shot.

I experienced some light sensitivity and double vision in the weeks ahead. I wanted to get my eyes dilated but COVID had made it difficult to find a doctor that was doing dilations at the time. Months went by and my left 2 toes went numb, Then it started going up my leg and moving to the toes on my right foot. I felt my nerves. My spine felt swollen, like a rod in my back. I could only lay on my side, My pinky fingers went numb. I had fine tremors in my hands and could feel the tremors between my lips. I woke up one morning and the face of my watch on my arm was smashed. I don’t know but I suspect a seizure. I had twitching. I am still runnning tests but so far, my diagnosis is idiopathic transverse myelitis. I am 47, a mother of four, ages 7-16. I’m very scared and don’t know why this is happening, bit I suspect the vaccine.
