What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Healthy, no meds, active, and busy life with 2 sons and running my own company
Describe your symptoms and the timeline of your reaction
A few weeks after J&J vaccine I started having fatigue, severe head pain, jaw pain, blurry vision, headaches all on the right side of my head and oy bad vision in my eight eye. I also had very foggy head and vertigo, dizziness, and was having a hard time working and doing anything that required me to think. In May of 2021 I had multiple nose bleeds where large blood clots came out and my regular doctor advised me to go straight to the ER. MRI and CT scans and check of heart showed everything was fine and doc said it was possibly complications from the vaccine. I had about 6 months of issues and then it slowly subsided. I still have issues with my eye sight in the right eye and periodic head pressure issues and have been suffering from depression and anxiety ever since. I have very bad stomach issues and had a colonoscopy with results of inflamed upper intestine. I don’t feel like I will ever feel like I did before the vaccine.
Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms
Doctors gave me antibiotics as they thought maybe I had an infection. I took a ton of vitamins, fasted, and took ivermectin in latter part of 2021 but it did not agree with my tummy. Currently in therapy for mental issues and EMDR therapy as well that is helping.
