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

FROM YR1 TO 35, I WAS A FREIGHT TRAIN. I WAS A PITCHER,Q.B., & WENT PRO IN BOWLING. IN 1097, I HAD CANCER. IT TOOK ME 20YRS TO GET BACK INTO COMPETING TO WIN AGAIN. I TRAINED HARD, I GOT STRONG BY BUILDING HOUSES. I CAME BACK IN LATE 2019. I BOWLED 3 TOURNAMENTS LOCALLY(WON 1,5TH IN THE OTHER & 2ND. I WAS ABOUT READY. I WAS FEELING BACK & I WAS HAPPY AGAIN.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

3/12/21 J&J VACCINE SHOT. THAT NIGHT, THE SEVERE REACTIONS STARTED. THAT NIGHT, MY LEGS FROZE UP, HEADACHE, FEELING SICK, SLEPT FOR 14HRS. I WOKE UP & COULDN'T WALK MUCH. GLAD THE BATHROOM WAS ONLY 9 STEPS AWAY. I WAS PRETTY MUCH BED RIDDEN FOR A WEEK, THEN MY LEGS STARTED SLOWLY BENDING. THROUGH THE MONTHS OF THE 1ST YR, IT MOVED AROUND OUR OF MY LEGS INTO MY LT ARM. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS EATING IT'S WAY AROUND. IT LEFT DAMAGE. NOW, IT'S IN MY RT ARM(THATS WHY ALL CAPS). LEGS ABOUT 40%,LT ARM 75%, RT ARM 25-50%. I HAVE BAD DAYS & REALLY BAD DAYS! IT USED TO BE 4 DAYS IN A WEEK I COULD DO SIMPLE THINGS, NOW IT'S LESS THAN 1 IN 7! MY HEADACHES ARE FEWER, MY BODY IS STIFFENING, MY EYES ARE N OW BEING EFFECTED, I HAVE TREMORS, PINS & NEEDLES & SOMETIMES A SPIKE. I CAN'T DRIVE TO THE CITY(55 MILES AWAY)ANYMORE. GOING TO THE LOCAL STORE, I HAVE TO GET READY FOR 2 DAYS TO GO, THEN I PASS OUT. BNO MORE SPORTS! I CAN'T EVEN THROW A FRIGGIN BALL! I AM NOW DISABLED & GETTING WORSE EACH DAY. I'M LOSING GROUND. I HAVE BEEN TO 18 DOCTORS WHO “REFUSE” TO LINK MY REACTIONS THAT STARTED THAT NIGHT TO THE J&J. I HAD TO DEMAND GABAPENTIN, CODEINE & NAPROXEN JUST TO DO SOME CHORES AROUND THE HOUSE. THE DOCTORS SAY, IT'S IN MY HEAD & PRESCRIBE ANTIDEPRESSANTS(I DON'T TAKE). THE NEUROLOGIST RIGHT OFF THE BAT SAID HE WAS BLAMING MY DIABETES BUT SAID WE WOULD DO THE TESTS ANYWAYS! I ENDED THAT QUICKLY! I'M LOSING GROUND EVERY DAY. NEXT MONTH, I'M 61YO & FEEL 89. I HAVEN'T DRIVEN AFTER DARK NOW SINCE THE DAY OF J&J SHOT.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I HAD TO DEMAND GABAPENTIN, NAPROXEN & SOMETIMES CODEINE WHEN I WAS IN HEAVY/SEVERE PAIN. I TAKE NATURAL BLOOD THINNERS, WORMWOOD FOR MY BAD STOMACH PAIN, EXCEDRIN FOR BHEADACHES, AZELASTINE THATB HELPS MY HEAD CLEAR OUT, CROMOLYN FOR MY EYES, AND A FEW OTHER THINGS. I HAVE TO TRY HIT/MISS ON THINGS THAT MAY HELP & MOST DO NOTHING. IT SEEMS THEY EFFECT PEOPLE IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. SO WHAT WORKS FOR SOME, DON'T WORK 4 OTHERS. IN MY CASE, MOST EVERYTHING I HEAR ABOUT, DOESN'T HELP ME. THERE WAS A PRO CYCLIST IN BELGIUM THAT WAS VERY CLOSE & I LEARNED A LOT OFF OF HER.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I TRIED TO GO WALKING TO FREE UP MY LEGS. THEY JUST GOT WORSE EVEN AFTER 3 WEEKS OF PAINING THROUGH IT THINKING THEY WOULD COME AROUND. I NOW WALK AROUND 10-15 MINUTES AT A TIME. I DO INTERNET TRIVIA & TIMING GAMES TO SEE HOW BAD I'M GETTING. MY HEAD IS FADING, SHORT TERM MEMORY SOMETIMES IS BAD. I TRIED MOST EVERYTHING OTHERS HAVE TRIED & SAID THEY HELPED. BUT FEELING AROUND, I SAW THAT THINGS ONLY WORKED FOR ABOUT 3-7% OF THE INJURED. I HAVE 3 BIG BOXES OF STUFF THAT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING THAT OTHERS SUGGESTED. THE THINGS I TAKE NOW ONLY JUST TAKE THE EDGE OFF WHERE I CAN GET MY ASS UP & WASH THE DISHES. ANY SORT OF HEAT IS NOW A KILLER. I SWEAT LIKE A PIG IN SECONDS & FEEL LIGHT HEADED. I KEEP MY ROOM AT 65 DEGREES & IT HELPS. NO CAFFEINE & I JUST SLEPT MUCH MORE.

What would you like others to know?

I THINK THE VACCINES ATTACK FLAWS IN YOUR GENES. SIDE EFFECTS SEEMS TO BE DIFFERENT IN EVERYBODY. I WAS ON REALNOTRARE.COM & REPORTED TO VAERS ABOUT 3 MONTHS AFTER THE SHOT. READ THE SIDE EFFECTS/REACTIONS & WHAT HELPED THEM(IT'S A STARTING POINT). THEY DON'T TAKE WHAT YOUR DOCTOR SAYS 100% ESPECIALLY IF THEY DON'T BELIEVE YOU! IF THEY PRESCRIBE ANTIDEPRESSANTS, TRY ANOTHER DOCTOR(I'M ON MY 18TH). THERE ARE LISTS OF DOCTORS THAT ARE LISTENING, BUT FEW & FAR BETWEEN & EXPENSIVE SINCE I'M DISABLED NOW. DON'T GIVE UP, BUT ALSO DON'T OVER DUE IT OR YOU'LL HAVE A RE-LAPSE FOR DAYS. TRY A LITTLE AT A TIME INCREASING TIME BY 5 MINUTES. PS: ON YOUR BAD DAYS, DON'T HOLD ANYTHING MADE OF GLASS! I NOW DO PAPER PLATES & PLASTIC CUPS.
