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

I cannot take vaccines due to my autoimmune disease My immunologist was against me taking it. I was forced to get it.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Immediately I experienced a drop in my immunity measured by labs orrdered by my immunologist I had vertigo and had to see a specialist; tinnitus which hasn’t resolved; paralysis of my left hip through left foot. My left foot was entirely numb & the pain from the left buttock/hip was constant. I couldn’t sit on the toilet or sit to play piano. I tried to help myself with easier hikes. I was treated by a neurologist who wasn’t sure if the issues would be permanent. He ran nerve tests & ordered Gabapentin. One doctor told me that doctors were threatened that they would lose their licenses if they disagreed with anything pronounced CDC. I did report my adverse reactions in the Federal AVERS (sp?) database.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I had multiple Epley manuveurs to address the vertigo but it resurfaces I had Gabapentin & my personal belief in moving through pain but I am not 100% better Tinnitus - no solution Sleep issues - no real solutions

Which solutions were not helpful?

Hard to say since I have had mixed results
