Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms 

Nothing helps me. I have gone to numerous doctors and specialists. They keep telling me everything is normal and ignore me when I say I have been like this sick the vaccine. They tell me no one will believe me anyways.

What would you like others to know?

Don’t take the chance. Don’t take the vaccine because you feel pressured. The injuries people have are serious and very real.
