Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
I was a healthy 68 year old, active grandmother, who golfed twice a week until I received the first dose of Moderna on January 27th, 2021. After 5 minutes I had a severe allergic reaction. Flushing throughout my body, tightness and swelling in my throat, spike in blood pressure, and tingling in my face and chest. I immediately took benedryl and went to the ER for prednisone. I continued to have the allergic reactions for the next 3 weeks. After 7 days I tested positive for Covid 19, when I lost my sense of taste. ( I’m thinking I got it in the ER) I did not have a fever or cough, just some GI issues and loss of appetite. But the allergic reactions continued daily and I went to the ER several more times because of it. I was told I had anxiety, and was given Ativan. Anyone would feel anxious with sky high blood pressure and a swollen throat. I now have MCAS and when the reactions come back, i have to go back on Prednisone for a couple of weeks.
It’s been 5 1/2 months, and I’ve been told I have long Covid. So was it the Vaccine or the mild case of Covid? I don’t know.
I still have the numbness and tingling throughout my body, an occasional tremor in my right hand, extreme fatigue, rapid heartbeat, fluctuating blood pressure and other strange symptoms.
