Mariane Walin // Minnesota, USA // Pfizer



Date of vaccine: 04/03/2021

Date of injury: 04/06/2021




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

Raced the 2018 ITU (international triathlon union) world grande finals as an age division racer. Raced multiple USA triathlon national championships. Won my age division and overall female division at multiple local triathlon races. Live on a small hobby farm so I could lift 100 hay bales with no breaks.


Describe your symptoms and the timeline of your reaction 

First 2 months: migraine head ache, ringing in ears, unable to focus (almost crashed car) blurred vision, severe fatigue, weakness. Neuro symptoms started to subside then cardiac symptoms emerged 2 months after the vaxx: SOB, elevated HR, unable to walk to the end of the driveway, continued weakness and fatigue, heart would just start racing.


Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms 

Naltrexone, albuterol inhaler as needed, anti-inflammatory foods.


Which solutions were not helpful?

Neurology did nothing, pulmonologist gave me a steriod inhaler that I ended up being allergic to. Migraine medication didn’t get rid of the migraine for the first 2 months.


What would you like others to know?

When Medicare mandated the vaxx for all homecare agencies I got the medical exemption but had to do weekly COVID testing. I had a severe reaction to nasal swabs. I ended up with fibrous thickening of the apex of my lungs, o2 saturation was dropping below 90%, every time I stood up my heart rate would go to 120bpm, and I was having breathing attacks. I made the decision that my health was now my #1 priority, refused further COVID testing and was terminated from my job. I am trying to start my own company now but to supplement my lack of income I started figure skating again in hopes to do some coaching (20 years.of skating, took a 10 year hiatus from skating). I had a bad fall and hit my head, 3 skull fractures, ruptured artery, emergency craniotomy, 67 staples, and was in the ICU. Now I am dealing with vaxx issues, nasal swab issues, and a brain injury all stemming from the fear of losing my job…which I lost anyways.
