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

Normal. I was Healthy and happy.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

The symptoms following this first shot were: mental confusion ( difficulty to return to work alone) and a swelling from the zone under the wrist and little finger (left side). However I felt calm about taking the second dose. The second dose (left arm), given 11-22-21. After 10 – 15 minutes I began to have symptoms of muscle hardness on the upper left part of my back. At the time I didn’t give it much importance, as my breathing felt fine. After 30 minutes the pain was very strong and accompanied by a urticaria on my chest and back. Therefore I was helped with intravenous medication (right arm)at the hospital. In the hospital I developed: myalgia between the shoulder and the shoulder blade (left side), edema and parestesia, urticaria, mental confusion and cloudy vision. I was under observation at the hospital for 6 hours. At home, including the day of vaccination, an avalanche of new symptoms began as well as intensification on some previously mentioned symptoms. -Edema spreading on the back – paresthesia – sensation of stinging and boiling lava running down the back (around 10 days). A horrible pain/ burning sensation on the back from the shoulders until the lower back, in a triangular fashion. Although it was invisible, I felt burnt, and the skin was extremely hot and sensitive to the slightest touch. (for more than 2 weeks in the highest level). – sensation of pulling of the back skin, as if there was something under it. – asthenia, tachycardia (POTS), chest pain, bronchial spasms: All these symptoms were interconnected, which resulted in sick leave and lying down as much as possible, not being able to live normally. -joint pain that wake me up night – hives and rash on the back – fever, sweats, shake hands, muscle pain in the knees (1 day), dizziness and permanent sensation of very cold, including my burning back – general malaise – menstrual irregularity, menstrual pain (constant for more than 8 months and many times very strong), menstrual Clotting (3 times), – kidney – 3 parapyelic cysts – sub clinical Thyroiditis – 1 thyroid nodule – lymphadenopathy (left armpit) – tinnitus – constant presence of various high frequencies in the head simultaneous with a low thunder sound. This is one of the most difficult symptoms to tolerate because I am very sensitive to any sound and when I am exposed to it, it worsens quickly becoming stronger in the head.
