Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
Entry Date: 5/27/21
I am a 58 year old woman, I have fibromyalgia, migraines, severe allergies and recurring bouts of raised intracranial pressure. I work part time due to my disabilities.
I had the Pfizer vaccine on 3/26/2021. No reaction. On the second dose dated 4/16/2021 I started getting a migraine and nausea. My symptoms became progressively worse and included flu like symptoms, headache, migraine,fever, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light. I spent days at urgent care and the emergency room. Finally a doctor in the ER believed me that this was a reaction to the vaccine and started doing tests. After a spinal tap that showed raised intracranial pressure, they did PCR testing on my spinal fluid and diagnosed me with viral meningitis from the varicella zoster virus (chicken pox/shingles) Many have had an outbreak of shingles with COVID or the COVID vaccine, I had no shingles rash, I've never had shingles, but the virus crossed the blood brain barrier and inflamed the meninges of the brain.
They inserted a PICC line and I had 3 weeks of IV Alcyclovir, an antiviral medication. I am better, but still have horrible fatigue, headaches and brain fog.
