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

I was person who ran 30 miles a week Played ice hockey two to four times a week I was motivated and sharp as a tack I never had the flu in my life nor had a flu shot My life was great till Covid messed it up

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I received my first shot in October of 2020 Two days after I could feel pain and stiffness in my joints. I even called the study back and said did I get the vaccine as I know I did as my body in not right. They said i was just guessing as it was a blind study. The study was unblinded in January of 2021 Guess what I had the vaccine. I needed to go to NY for work in 2022. I had to get a second vaccince. After getting the second shot in order to travel my body started to come apart. Anxiety depression lack of drive to go with total body pain and memory loss I could not run anymore as I needed days to recover. I play hockey once a week if lucky and spend the next day in bed recovering I gained over 25 pounds and can not get it off I am now sleeping 8 to 10 hours a night

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I stopped living Not running or skating gave me the energy to get thru a work day On bad days I will take Predisone to take the edge of the pain I am tired and started drinking energy drink when needed to concentrate

Which solutions were not helpful?

Ibuproheb Alleve None of th OTC help

What would you like others to know?

That evryones body react differntly to the vaccine The studies and govt where in a rush to not over fill the hospitals but now they do not care about the percentage of folks who have had adverse reactions and do not offer the same resources to us as they spent trying to get evryone vaccinated
