My name is Kaimi Crombie. I am 36 years old and a single mother of two children. I worked fulltime before I got the jab. I was healthy, enjoyed bike riding daily and walked everywhere, as I don’t drive.
I held out as long as I could, trying to avoid getting the jab, but on 14th October 2021, I got my first Moderna. The next day I was going to lose my job if I didn’t meet the required mandates.
I had no initial reaction, except for pain in my wrist and hand of the same arm. After the procedure I went home. Around seven hours later I was so tired and couldn’t keep my eyes open. It felt like my hand was in a bucket of liquid nitrogen. My pain levels were 11/10, which were worse than childbirth.
For the following seven days, I was nauseous and couldn’t keep any food down, so I went to the GP. They told me that it was all normal and that I would, ‘get over it’. The GP prescribed some nausea tablets and sent me on my way.
Two weeks later on 31st of October 2021, I had my first emergency department visit. I still hadn’t eaten since the jab and was sleeping, sometimes for up to 30 hours. I was put on fluids and under observation for the night. I was given no answers and, in the morning, I was released to the care of my GP.
It was written on paper as an adverse reaction to the jab, but I continued working and pushing through every moment. When I wasn’t at work, I was sleeping.
Towards mid November I started losing many hours in a day. I was fainting randomly which was scary. I was lucky that my eyes would tremble. It was a sign for me to lay down before I fainted. On the 29th of November I fainted during the last hour of my shift. I also started having a severe facial tic and an extreme heart rate, which would then suddenly change and drop really low.
On the 30th November, towards the end of my shift, I developed a bad headache and called my mum to pick me up. She took me to the emergency department. After four hours, I was told the head tic didn’t match up to an adverse reaction and they sent me away, with no real help. That was the last day that I worked. From there the fainting, heart problems, tremors and tics got worse.
I was seeing the GP twice a week and referred onto a cardiologist and neurologist. They gave me many blood tests and an MRI. My legs were becoming weak and I had a weird limp when I walked. I began suffering from temporary paralysis in my legs, arms and neck, plus random rashes. At times I would randomly start convulsing or have tics and tremors.
I couldn’t function and ended up having to move in with my parents for most of December 2021. I couldn’t look after my two kids safely, due to the fainting.
Around the 20th of December I was at the table and all of a sudden I lost my speech and couldn’t lift my head or arms. My parents called an ambulance and while we waited my dad held my head up, trying to keep me conscious. The ambulance came and I had two moments of apnea in the ambulance. My saturation levels were at 85%.
Upon arrival, I was put in a wheelchair and placed in the ER waiting room for two hours. I couldn’t breathe and a girl next to me alerted a nurse, as they didn’t even have me under observation. After four hours in this extreme state, they kicked me out onto the streets at 4.30am. I hadn’t even been seen and was told I was suffering from anxiety. It was so traumatising to be treated like that. This is where my fear of hospital started.
The next couple of weeks were awful and I was still having heart issues, tics, fainting etc. Then on 9th January 2022, I lost my speech again and had paralysis in both of my legs. My 11-year-old daughter had to call an ambulance for me. A mobile intensive care ambulance (MICA) turned up and said that I had to go to the hospital. I told them that the hospital wouldn’t help me the last time, but they were insistent, as my heart rate was way too high. So again I was taken to emergency and again they didn’t really listen to me. I was placed in a room with observations and that was it really. They discharged me the following morning.
After countless neurologist, cardiologist and GP visits, still no one could tell me what was wrong. The cardiologist gave up and referred me onto the Monash cardiology unit in January 2022. They also gave up and referred me onto the Monash neurologist unit and now are trying to get me into the Monash adverse vaccine reactions unit.
I also have an intolerance to standing or sitting. I can only really lay down or my heart rate jumps too high and then randomly drops to low. My lymph nodes are still swollen and I cannot take any medications, as it makes my symptoms worse. I can only take vitamins. My blood pressure is up and down and I still have temporary paralysis in my neck. My oxygen levels drop off randomly. I’m scared that I won’t wake up.
They have all mostly given up on me. They don’t have answers, other than saying that I have dysautonomia. Dysautonomia is dysfunction of the nerves, that regulate non-voluntary functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and sweating. This makes sense with all of my symptoms. Dysautonomia is due to the viral load of the jab.
My other severe symptoms have eased a bit, but they are nowhere near close to gone. I have seen some relief from a chiropractor and my digestion and brain fog have improved. However, I can no longer afford the chiropractor, as I have more tests coming up and other specialist clinics. I’ve used all my savings on tests, medical costs and daily living. I cannot work and have no income. Sadly, I am now on Centrelink.
This page and the batch numbers have helped me find others who had the same batch as me and others who have also have been injured.
It’s all taken such a toll on me and my kids. My daughter had to call the ambulance and is now afraid that something will happen to me. This has made her not want to go to school. I want to live for my kids and I have so many things to look forward to in the future, so I have to get better.
My symptoms change daily, so its hard when people ask me how I am. One day I’ll seem okay, but the next I’ll be unable to breathe or I’ll have tics and tremors.
I shared my story, because I literally want to try to stop this, before the jab reaches more kids. I have a lot of guilt because my son got it the same day as me. I just want the mandates and everything to stop. I want people to have a choice over their bodies.
