I’m 32 years old. Prior to the vaccine I was working full time hours and living a healthy active lifestyle. Every single day I would be out walking my dog, I also participated in yoga and pilates classes four times a week. For many years I did not have any health issues but I have a genetic MTHFR disorder, which is a methylation issue. It caused me problems about eight or nine years ago, which lead me into natural health and I was able to get myself back to 99% through certain methods.
I saw the red flags and I was questioning myself whether this vaccine was safe or not. I was also getting messages from a natural health perspective, outlining the dangers of what it could mean for people with a methylation issue.
I got the Pfizer vaccine because I had people in my close circle who were peer pressuring me. They were asking me why I wouldn’t want to protect the people around me, they genuinely believed the mainstream narrative that this was safe and effective, and would ask me over again if I had booked my appointment yet.
With the added pressure of my friends and the mandates not allowing me to continue my work in hospitality, something really didn’t feel right. So I had a formal written letter by AFL Solicitors that I used to send to my employer, basically stating that there was a lot of things going through the courts at the time regarding the mandates and people were fighting against the mandates.
My boss wrote back quite angrily and told me to choose my poison. I was backed into a corner and I didn’t feel like I had any other options, so I went and got the vaccine on 3rd November 2021 in my right arm. I was feeling pretty upset, the nurse even noted that she could see I didn’t want it. Between five and 10 minutes after the procedure I started to feel a sharp pain in my jaw and neck, my ear was ringing and I had a throbbing arm. The nurses told me I was fine, even though I told them what I was feeling, and they sent me home.
I was living on the couch for the next couple of days and my symptoms started to increase and spread around my body. I was experiencing severe tinnitus and it felt like I had an earache, my jaw and neck pain had increased to the point I was crying in pain, I started getting chest pains around the heart but also most of my pains were on the right side of my body which is where the procedure was done. My lymph nodes started to become inflamed in my groin and my right breast was super tender and sore.
After dealing with my increasing symptoms for a couple days and thinking that this would just pass, I called my boss to tell him that I took the procedure. He responded by telling me that there would be no more shifts for me and he let me go. I asked him why and he wouldn’t give me an explanation. After all of that I didn’t even have a job to go back to.
Six days into my increasing symptoms I started to get concerned about things not getting better so, in discussion with my partner, we decided it was probably a good idea I go to the hospital just to be sure.
I went to the hospital and on arrival I told them I’d had the vaccine and that I thought I was having an adverse reaction. I explained all my symptoms and the extreme pain I was in and they responded saying, ‘Well I guess we have to find out if you are having a heart attack or not’. They ran tests:
- Bloods (which left me many bruises)
They also checked my ears and told me that I had a lot of wax build up, but my GP four days later told me my ears were perfectly clean. The results from the other tests came back clear. They did talk about an MRI, but last minute decided not to and sent me home. I was there from 9pm – 7am, which was classed as overnight, and they sent my doctor the discharge notes. My doctor called me four days later.
I went and saw my doctor and told her that I thought I was having a serious adverse reaction because I was still experiencing the severe pain I was in, and it felt like it wasn’t getting any better. But she basically turned around and assured me that I was just having an immune response like so many other people and told me that I needed to get the second vaccine because it will be better than getting COVID.
I remember sitting there in shock that she said this after I had just explained to her what I was experiencing, but she wasn’t listening to me. She was in a hurry to get me my second vaccine, even trying to book me in without me asking for the procedure. I told her I would do it on my own if that’s what I was going to do and I left.
I was starting to feel pretty defeated and questioning my sanity. I was feeling isolated and not sure what to do. Looking back I can see it was gas lighting, which is something I had experienced many years ago with my methylation issue.
Moving forward, I was just trying to get on with life and manage my pain with natural health remedies. I was better on them than without them but I was still in a great deal of pain every day. I started developing dizziness and nausea whenever I was exerting myself, with a bout of strong headaches in the back of my skull where it meets my spine. My body was struggling with inflammation.
This went on for a couple of weeks and my symptoms had plateaued. I didn’t feel like I was able to get any help from the medical professionals and I had no other choice but to get back into work so I needed the second vaccine to do that, although I didn’t want it. I regretfully did what I thought I had to.
I got the second Pfizer vaccine on 26th November 2021 in my right arm. I didn’t feel anything initially so I was feeling pretty positive and relieved when I left the clinic. Over the next couple days life was continuing, as it were, until I woke up one night with heart palpitations and cold sweats. I managed to get back to sleep but woke up the next morning feeling heavy, nauseous and light headed. I started getting ready for work and suddenly felt extremely unwell to the point I was dripping in sweat. I felt like I was going to pass out. I started crawling on the floor to move myself and I called out to my partner for help. He came down and witnessed what he thought was me having a seizure and called the ambulance.
When the ambulance arrived they said that I didn’t have a seizure but ever since then I have had tremors in my right hand, which even happens while I sleep. They did an ECG on the spot and said my heartbeat was irregular. They made me walk to the ambulance, which was 50m away, and I couldn’t believe that this was happening. I was pleading them for help, I couldn’t even see properly because my vision was so blurry. I can’t even begin to describe how defeated I felt. I couldn’t believe they were making me walk in my state.
I arrived at the hospital and even though my partner had the second vaccine, he wasn’t even allowed into the waiting room. They ran ECG, bloods and monitored me for five hours. They acknowledged that my heartbeat was irregular and too fast, but I was released as an outpatient once my heart rate had settled down. On release they told me that many people are experiencing anxiety right now, to which I responded, ‘This isn’t anxiety at all!’ I was forthright and frustrated at this point and they just gave me a blank look.
My doctor called me a couple days later but I wasn’t able to see her as they had closed their clinic due to an outbreak of COVID cases. They said that I would be able to have an appointment after Christmas. In the meantime I need to call the heart health clinic and get a heart bug. I organised an appointment, but wasn’t able to get a heart bug until a month later in late January because of the high demand for them. I asked them why there was a high demand and they just said that a lot of people are experiencing heart issues.
Christmas came and I contracted COVID soon after. I tested myself with a RAT and I was asymptomatic. You can imagine at this point how furious I was feeling, that after all of my compliance with the government and my friends, to end up with COVID and not feel a thing. I was supplementing NAC, Vitamin D, C, Zinc and taking Ivermectin as recommended by many amazing doctors who have been censored. While I am the only one who is compromised out of my friends, they were hit harder by COVID than I was. During this time I wasn’t experiencing any chest pain, which I still can’t explain.
After COVID my chest pains came back and I received the heart bug. This showed that I had an irregular heartbeat and a resting heart of over 100bpm, which isn’t normal. I have since seen a cardiologist who has asked me why I never received an MRI and told me that is the golden rule. But because the wait list is so long I am still waiting till November to get the test done.
In my most recent visit to my GP I asked if my doctor reported me to the TGA as I have paper work stating I have, ‘on-going issues, likely from the vaccine’. She said, ‘No’. I then told her that I’d gone ahead and done that for her and listed her as my doctor who hadn’t reported my adverse event.
All I received from this was an automated mail saying they cannot help me any further and to report to my doctor.
Currently I still have a lot of tension pain in my head, my hand is still tremoring, I have the odd episode where I can’t breathe and my heart rate rapidly speeds up and I have sharp heart attack like moments. I feel like I’m improving very slowly with my consistent natural remedies, but I still feel like I’m sitting at about 50% of my old self.
I’m sharing my story because I have felt alone, and initially I didn’t want to share my story out of the fear that I was alone, but through this page I can see that I am not and I am hopeful in healing and spreading awareness.
