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

Normal..could taste and smell

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Vaccine 2/2/21---3/12/21---Booster 12/14/21 Had terrific dizziness on 1/2/22...followup with doctor and several other doctors she sent me to..No Covid antibodies present as I had not had Covd. Got over dizziness...then around February/March/22..lost sense of smell and taste. Did not go to doctor about this until June (yearly checkup) and was sent to several doctors for tests. Neurosurgeon told me if taste did not return by March, 2023, it probably would not return. He was right. I still have no smell or taste. For first time, I had Covid in January 2023--mild case lasting only 3 weeks with no energy, however, did take Paxlovid, which, I think, contributed to no energy as husband had same thing and Paxlovid had no adverse affects on him. Just wish my taste would return as I really miss my CHOCOLATE. Also, I have lost taste or desire to eat most meats. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced these symptoms since getting vaccines.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

No solution to my problem of no taste or smell.
