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

The first time I got covid was January 2021. I ended up with long haul covid that lasted 4 months. I got the moderna vaccine when it came out April 2021. That healed my long haul symptoms. Then I got covid again April 2022, two weeks after masks came off at school and my daughter brought Covid home from school. I was sick for months again and asked for another vaccine to see if it would alleviate my symptoms like it did the first time. I got the Pfizer vaccine the second time, and my symptoms got much worse.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Extreme fatigue
muscle aches
muscle twitches
tachycardia
chest pain
dizziness
tingly hands and feet, especially before a pre-syncope event
fainting
diarrhea
shortness of breath
post exertional malaise
sleeping 12+ hours a day
extreme anxiety and depression
suicidal ideation
I was diagnosed with POTS I believe December 2022
I currently can't work because of brain fog

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Beta blocker for the tachycardia
antidressent for depression/anxiety
Low dose naltrexone gave me more energy when I initially took it, but I don't think it's really helping any more
upper cervical chiropractor
very slow progression of exercise using a recombinant bike and rowing machine
antihistamines also helped, but only for a short period of time
deep breathing
watching Miguel Bautista's Youtube Channel called CFS recovery

Which solutions were not helpful?

The what seems like thousands of suppliments I've tried (curcumin, vit. C, Vit D, Omega 3's, magnesium, calcium, querticin, Iron, CoQ10, liquid B12) - I'm sure I'm forgetting some
Fludrocortizone
Ibaverdine
salt tablets
compression stockings

What would you like others to know?

Shame on anyone who didn't want to take measures to mitigate this virus by simple mask wearing. As for the vaccine, I was a huge proponent of it - but truly we were guinea pigs and it was not tested long enough to prove long term effacacy, and/or safety. No one can explain to me why the vaccine helped me one time, but made me worse the second time and that's a HUGE problem. We need more anti-virals like Paxlovid and the vaccines need to be taken off the market until more testing is done.
