Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


I received my first Moderna shot April 9th. 24 hours afterward, I started to have serious muscle cramping and pain from my left hip down to my left foot. It was so bad at times, I was literally crying from the pain. It felt like a mixture of sciatica and severe neuropathic pain. It appeared to be centered around my nerves. After about three weeks, it began to eat a little bit and I went and got the 2nd shot May 14th. 24 hours later the pain came back and it was 10 times worse. It took almost 2 and a half months to ease up this time. It also took three epidural shots in my lower back, frequent chiro visits and physical therapy to get it to a point where I can function. It has now eased up but I can still feel the pain there, like it's waiting to spring at a moments notice.

I work for the federal government and we are all mandated to get the vaccine. If they try tomake me take a booster shot, i will lose my job because I'm not going through that pain again.
