First Dose of Johnson & Johnson on 09/21/21 Lot #203AZIA
Sante Fe, New Mexico
Some of my side effects 9 months later have improved a lot but others haven’t, and a newer one is worse hair loss. The heart palpitations, involuntary muscle movements, and memory damage are better. The worse pain continues, along with severe insomnia. I have pain and burning in my bladder now. I feel like I have a bladder infection, but I don’t.
ORIGINAL INTERVIEW ON 1/29/22:
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
I had a complex 26 year-long, nonstop, headache. It was due to 3 neck/head injuries (cervicogenic headache). However, I had gotten the pain down to a survivable level after the latest accident in 2018. I was active, happy and did a lot. Life was good.
I work for the Feds and had to choose between my job or getting a vaccine before October 15th. I stupidly chose income over my health…and now may end up on disability anyway.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
About 5.5 hours after the shot, my “normal” headache got EXTREMELY bad. My vision got blurry, I had heart palpitations, and all the muscles in my body got stiff and sore. That evening I had internal vibrations which I had never felt before. Two mornings later, at almost 55, I spotted!!
Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?
Most of the other side effects cleared up in a few days, but as the almost 15 weeks now have passed, the headache with burning scalp and neck is getting worse and worse. I have NO quality of life. Nothing is helping. I cannot live like this! I’m so scared about my future. I’m seeing that a lot of people with chronic pain are MUCH worse after getting vaccinated.
