In June 2021 I had a Pfizer vaccination. Within five minutes I felt like someone was choking me and started having hot waves over my body. I told the staff I wasn’t feeling well and they told me not to worry, I was having a panic attack and would be fine. I had to go to work afterwards and the hot flushes continued and then I also started to feel a really strong pulsing sensation and pressure in my head. Shortly afterwards I started to feel very dizzy and then I couldn’t move my arms and hands and legs and started to dribble saliva. My work colleagues came over to check on me and I literally couldn’t move for the next ten-fifteen minutes. After another few minutes I was able to move but feeling really bad so they drove me home. As soon as I got home, my partner called for an ambulance and they said I was having a small allergic reaction. We were in the middle of the pandemic and they said I could come with them into the hospital or stay at home. I decided it was probably safer at home and went to bed. I woke up at 3am with cold sweats, my vision was affected and I could literally feel the blood pumping in my arm. I spoke to the doctor the next day and they said it was a reaction to the vaccination and would pass. For days I had hot waves over my whole body and difficulty breathing. Several weeks passed and I found I couldn’t move my leg or arm properly and I still don’t feel them properly any more. I still have numbness, dry eyes and mouth, jaundice skin ,fatigue, problem sleeping. I have lost loads of weight, I have constipation. I was sent for a psychiatry consult in July 2022 and told I have anxiety. In December 2022 I saw a rheumatologist who said my ANA levels were high and prescribed me medication, but said she will refer me to cardiology. I have returned to work but struggle with symptoms every day. I am tired from all this. I didn’t lost hope, but just I feel like all the NHS want to tell me is that it is anxiety and stress. Lots of normal tasks are difficult because I get tired so easily and have no strength. I was an active person before but my life was changed in an instant. I have spent money on private doctors and tests because of waiting times on the NHS and because the doctors dismiss it as anxiety. Emotionally I can’t cope anymore. It’s so much to deal with along with sleepless nights . What’s happening to me? Why can’t recover? Why does nobody on the NHS care?
My body its deteriorating slowly .
Taking the vaccine was the biggest mistake in my life!!!
