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

No issues

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I received my fourth Covid shot on December 15, 2022. I did not have any reaction to my previous 3 shots. The day of my fourth shot I experienced a flush in my face that turned into inflammation. I also experienced extreme itching over my body. I went to the ER on December 26, 2022 and was prescribed an antihistamine for the itching which was helpful but increased the facial inflammation. After three more doctors, two rounds of steroids and facial creams, no one had a definitive answer. Five months later my symptoms have diminished but have not gone away. The doctors are still requesting more tests.
