What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Perfectly healthy, other than I was overweight at the time
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I went to get my 3rd covid booster (Pfizer) and my influenza vaccine at the same time, which they said was perfectly safe. I did have a fever at the time I got it (my fault for not listening to warnings). What followed was six days in bed with a high fever (missed Thanksgiving), everything hurt- body aches, felt like the flu. I could not get out of bed. I tested twice for covid that week but results were negative. Felt like a very bad flu. After month after, I had another viral storm with multiple fever blisters, high fever, rummy nose and at the end, a mirroring viral rash on parts of my body. Since then, I have had fevers every day, off and on, low grade, between 99.1-99.5, and night sweats. In May, yet another viral storm with high fevers, body aches, runny nose and blisters but no rash. Primary said the fevers were likely caused by GERD and I went on Nexium for six weeks. Fevers persisted. I lost 30 lbs without trying- no appetite. Fevers persisted, so not GERD. Doc started digging and all markers for autoimmune (ANA, ANCA positive and abnormal, low white blood count) but not sure what. High kappa free light chain test. High parathyroid levels (not sure if related). Now I have a rheumatologist who is convinced it is autoimmune and we are doing more digging. I just want the fevers to stop because I am quite fatigued.
Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms
Nothing...yet. Until we know which autoimmune issue we are dealing with, can't begin to treat. I am going on the Wahl's protocol autoimmune diet to lower inflammation and bring back immune health. I am currently taking Zinc picolinate, Omega 3 fish oil and other supplements that may help.
Which solutions were not helpful?
What would you like others to know?
That if you have a fever, do NOT vaccinate. If you suspect you have an autoimmune disorder, or your family member does, reconsider vaccinating and NEVER take more than one at a time.
