Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
Hi my name is Marilyn. I received the Moderno vaccine the first week of January 2021. I worked as a pharmacy technician in the local town pharmacy. I wanted to show others my support for the vaccine and that I was willing to do my part to protect those around me. I had a horrible adverse reaction to the vaccination. The day after the vaccination I took my husband to get Lasix eye surgery. When we got home later that evening I came down with severe flu symptoms to the point I couldn’t finish making supper. I couldn’t even move. I went to bed at night woke up the next Morning and decided I had better not try to go to work. By 1 o’clock that afternoon my throat was closing off. I was in an absolute panic I called the doctor. I tried to call the health department and I called the ER. I was afraid they were going to put me back into quarantine so I did not want to go up to the ER. I ended up taking Benadryl every two hours along with Tylenol and ibuprofen every two hours as well as alcohol every two hours. I went to bed that night and told my husband I love him and if I died I knew I was going to heaven but prayed I would wake up to see my kids the next morning. I woke up the next morning not as swollen but still puffy face puffy neck and red. Since then I have struggled with being sick and with with my body swelling up. If I am lucky I can go about a week to two weeks without getting sick. When I get sick my cough becomes terrible my throat itches like terrible my throat swells up and my face and my neck will turn red. In December I weighed 175 pounds. Since getting the Covid vaccination I am about 195 pounds to 200 pounds and no matter what I do I cannot keep my weight under control. I am tired 100% of the time. I have no energy to get up and do things and hang out with my kids and my family. I have been in and out of the doctors offices. I have had chest scans and x-rays. I have a had a heart CT. They put me on some blood pressure medication to keep my heart from racing. I have had multiple blood test all showing nothing is wrong. Most days my head is in a constant fog. Just doing daily task and trying to remember what I’m doing can be a real struggle. I also have black Floaties in my left eye that I’ve never had before. I wish I would have never gotten the COVID-19 vaccination. This has been the worst decision of my whole entire life.
