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

My life was a normal life, I enjoyed time with my family and friends. I worked full time and always worked overtime

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I don't remember the exact date of diagnosis but on I started having symptoms a couple weeks after my vaccine. I went to a cardiologist with increased palpitations and chest pain. I was diagnosed with pericarditis. I was treated for 3 months and had a limited echocardiogram at that time that showed that the pericarditis was not completely gone but had subsided some.
Since that time I still have increased palpitations and episodes of tachycardia, I went to cardiologist again and was just recently diagnosed with non-sustained ventricular tachycardia among abnormal heart rate that fluctuates between the low 40's and up over 100. While resting my heart rate is variable, I was sent to an electrophysiologist who I am not seeing along with cardiologist. I have been on multiple medications at this point that don't seem to help.

What would you like others to know?

Before this vaccine I had a normal life, that I enjoyed. Now I am only working part-time because I am exhausted due to my symptoms making it hard to sleep or do anything in life. It has ruined me physically, mentally , and financially
