Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.



I was pro vaccine and signed up willingly for the shot. However, after my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, I developed neurological symptoms - tremors, widespread muscle twitches, muscle spasms, muscle fatigue and muscle weakness, upper back and lower back pain, electric shock pain from hips down to knees, hyper reflexes, heart palpitations and tachycardia, tinnitus, abnormal gait, severe anxiety. The symptoms have been debilitating and have impacted my daily life and my family relationships. I had two nerve studies, four MRIs, small fiber skin biopsies, numerous blood studies, EKG and Holter monitor test. All test came back negative/normal which I am thankful for but I am convinced my symptoms are from the vaccine. It has been six months now and I am scared and filled with anxiety that this will never end. It has been six months and some of the symptoms have slightly improved but other new ones have appeared. I was completely healthy and normal before this. I feel like the CDC is not even listening to these reports and I am angry that we are not being heard.
