Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

"7/9/21

On May 9th, 2021 my life changed forever. My life as a mother, an educator, a wife, a friend would never be the same. ​

On May 9th 2021, I received my first dose of Pfizer as a mother's Day gift to myself. Immediate I felt faint and this proceeded to three days of flu like symptoms.

On the fourth day a huge 4 centimeter lump appeared in my back and this was the beginning of my life changing reaction. Doctors assumed it could be shingles, but had no real answers. The following day all my worst symptoms presented. I started having heart issues, vertigo, dizziness, blurry vision, chest pain, weakness, fatigue, arthritic pain and more.

I continue to have these symptoms 61 days later. My heart will go into these episodes where it beats uncontrollably, irregularly and intensely, at which time I am faint, can't catch my breath, and cannot function. I deal with this everyday and has taken away my ability to live my life, teach, mother how I once was.

I have been in an out of the hospital, doctor's visits and specialist appointments and no one seems to be able to help me or they just deny my experience all together.

All I want is to feel normal again and to receive the medical care that I deserve.
