Amy Donnellan's Story

"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."
