"Hi my name is Emily. I’m 32 years old from upstate NY.

I received the J & J vaccine on the morning of April 5th, 2021. That evening I had the “ normal” body aches, chills, fever of 102, and also numbness of my face, feeling like needles in my legs, my stomach became extremely bloated. This lasted for about 10 hours.

The next morning I was tired but most of the other symptoms had gone away.

A couple of days later I began experiencing extreme fatigue, numbness on the whole left side of my body ( leg, arm, face) pressure and pain in my left ear.

I went to my doctor and they almost completely dismissed my concerns and said I was fine and no infection of the ear and that was it. I immediately switched my doctor and wasn’t seen until the next week. The morning of my appointment, the J & J was recalled for blot clots. The doctor listened to my concerns and said he thought that I may have either a blood clot on the brain or possibly MS. I got a whole blood work up and was sent for a CT scan of my head. All came back normal except for my vitamin D being low. They prescribed me high dose vitamin d to take.

I was able to get in with another doctor in the practice who did more of a blood workup and neurological tests.

In this time frame I had nights where I woke up with paralysis of my left side of my face, I couldn’t open my eye. My left leg looked visibly swollen. I went to the ER.

The ER did more blood work and sent me for an MRI. The MRI came back “ normal”. I was again sent home.

I felt like my body was shutting down. I was getting no answers. My doctor said he thought with time that these symptoms would go away and that this was my body’s immune response to the vaccine causing inflammation in the body. He also mentioned that most peoples side effects go away within 6-8 weeks. He said that other people are having pain where they had previous injuries or surgeries after getting the vaccine.

I was referred to a neurologist and an ENT doctor. Which it was going to take 8 weeks to see neurology and 3 months to see ENT.

In this time frame my symptoms started to change. I started getting not just numbness on and off now but weakness and pain in my left leg and arm.

I noticed that sugar and chocolate seemed to be effecting me more so. I had okay days and bad days. I started journaling what I was eating. I had brain fog. I started experiencing neck pain as well.

I finally was able to see the neurologist and he said that he thought I had vestibular migraines and maybe fibromyalgia. He did more blood work. All coming back normal.

He sent me for another MRI of the spine. He said that other than possible whiplash in the past that also looked normal.

I was seen by ENT in June and he said that he thought I had TMJ/TMD. I did some research and tried getting in for a consult for Invisalign to fix my bite. If this was truly part of the issue.

At this point my symptoms were not just these but also I felt like I couldn’t think. I felt like I had to think about moving my legs, and my legs felt like jello. My brain and thoughts were not connecting with my speech. So many times I would just blank when talking to someone or talking on the phone. I physically could not speak. Like my brain was just shutting down. I would be in my kitchen about to do something and it felt like every 5 seconds I would pause and have no idea what I was doing. It was truly so scary. I did another visit to the ER and waited 5 hours without being seen. I left.

I felt like symptoms were getting worse during certain times in my menstrual cycle. Worse right before my period it felt like.

Several times I went back to my primary doctor. Finally I asked him to please take my blood sugar as I felt that something was wrong with it. I had taken it at home a couple of times and once it was 45 upon waking up and another 70 upon waking up. I didn’t know if my reader was faulty or what.

My doctor tested in office and it was 80. After I had already had breakfast. He also took my A1C and he diagnosed me with reactive hypoglycemia. He said that my body is creating too much insulin. He told me to start eating protein/ fiber and whole grain/ wheat for every meal and to keep track of it.

I asked if there was anything else I could do and he said no, insurance will not cover anything unless you have high blood sugar/ diabetes.

I started truly looking at what I was eating and cutting out refined sugar almost completely. I feel this has helped a lot. I am doing so much better than I was. I still have numbness on and off and I can’t exercise without my sugar getting so low that I’m shaking/ can’t think. My left leg gets pain often now too if I do too much and my left arm is still very weak. I have started physical therapy in august for what they call myofascial pain syndrome. It has helped but I am still having a lot of neck pain that keeps me up at night.

In all of this I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, reactive hypoglycemia, Migraines, TMJ.

Doctors keep saying they hope with time that it gets better. It’s now over 5 months out from the vaccine. This journey has been the scariest thing that has ever happened to me in my life. I have never had any of these issues before and I was so healthy. I will only tell who I can when I trust someone but I truly am afraid to tell this story on social media. I wish I had the courage to share this with more people. I pray that I can get more answers as time goes on. I am better than I was so that is what matters. I am trusting the lord will heal and time. I am looking into regenerative medicine / iv therapy now after hearing Madeline Johnson’s story. "

"Cynthia hart age 39, female , Boston ma Pfizer first shot April, and second shot may 15. Social media handle @thatcaliblonde and @cynhart After my first vaccine a week later I was working at my hair salon and started to her pins and needles in my arms, legs, hands and feet. This lasted for 10 days and I eventually ended up at a clinic in south Boston where they said they specialized in covid care; they had no clue about any side effects of the vaccine and said they think it shall just pass. It did.

Second shot, I’m working away at my salon and the arch of my foot went numb with pins and needles…. Since that day it has progressed thru my body, pins and needles, extreme nerve pain, horrific joint pain in my hands and knees. Extreme deficiency of everything in my body and extreme fatigue. Now migraines, trouble walking at times…. Anyone that knows me knows what I am not anti/vax nor was I ever until the last 100 days of my life. My world has been turned upside down since I received the “jab”. I am posting this to hopefully help others and help there to be some awareness for all of the other silent people suffering or going thru 100 doctor visits, endless blood work, mri’s , worrying you have MS, or Lyme, or cancer or some auto immune, or being told it’s anxiety or your just run down. This is real and more people need to know what this “jab” did to me and to millions of other people.

I spend everyday with heating pads on my knees and joints in the morning and at night after attempting to work. My life has become fully consumed with pain management and constant research to figure out how to get better. My time away from work is spent at acupuncture, at IV drip facilities being pumped with vitamins and trying to detox my body, in and out of doctors and functional med facilities or sitting in epsomSalt baths.

Endless money and time spent to try abd feel better from a vaccine that was told to protect us and no severe side effects!!!!! I cry almost every night in horrible pain and fear that I’ll never get better and this ruined my life or body. I feel like I’ve been poisoned. This has gone on since may 15th and has only gotten worse.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3 The pins and needles in my body led to extreme nerve pain where I have had to ice my lips, hands, feet daily. i also now have chronic horrible joint pain making it hard to walk at times or drive using my hands because every joint in my hands throb and don’t work right , extreme muscle fatigue in my upper arms making it hard to lift over my head or do my own hair; let alone clients as I am a hairstylist. 3 months now !!!! I was doing my part protecting my family, myself, my clients and coworkers and helping to stop the spread of this virus and trusted it was safe; now I pay the price out of my own pocket to help get back any sort of normalcy in my life. I was a healthy 39 year old who’s body now feels like I’m 100. We need answers, support and help that have had adverse reactions to this horrific “jab”. Im lost at this point and just trying to help my body everyday but it’s a battle of pain management every single day. I need to get better to be able to take care of my 7 year old daughter ivy and run my business, I’m too young and too healthy to feel like my life is slowly coming to an end. Please share and get help for us all. "

"This is raw. I wouldn’t normally post something like this but it’s so important to share to make others aware.

19th July I went to have my Pfizer jab. I was sceptical about having it as my gut feeling was there wasn’t enough research into the vaccine but I decided to proceed so it would enable me my partner and baby to go on holiday next year. I’m not anti Covid or Anti Vax as my Dad was extremely unwell with Covid.

I felt lethargic and dizzy afterward the injection so I took myself to bed. The next two days I had a dead arm and began with this tingling sensation in my back. It then spread all across my body a cross between tingling sensation and pins and needles in my face hands, feet, legs arms and back.

I began to have excruciating chest pain and don’t suffer with anxiety and I wasn’t hyperventilating but I felt I couldn’t get my breath. It was getting worse and it felt like my chest was being crushed and I was being stabbed on the left side of my chest.

I went to A and E and I was left for 8hours unseen in agony before being seen by a doctor they ran ecg and bloods and they thought it was side effects of the Pfizer jab.

They discharged me and told me to go back to outpatient clinic the following Friday.

That week the symptoms got worseI couldn’t get my breath I couldn’t carry my daughter I couldn’t walk the dogs. I felt achy and the chest pain was getting worse everyday. I went back to clinic they said I had pericarditis and told me to go home and rest. I spent the weekend staying at my mums I ate a meal and collapsed I couldn’t speak I couldn’t feel anything my chest was excruciating and I thought I was having a heart attack. I was admitted to A and E and spent the next 10 days in hospital having MRI of my Brain,MRI on my spine, Ct Scan, X-rays Bloods and Echo on my heart. The consultant said it was pericarditis from the Covid Jab and they were discharging me with And to go home with painkillers and rest. I couldn’t shower by myself or walk I got so out of breathe my BP was so low I would faint, I couldn’t cuddle my daughter or pick her up as I am so weak."
