My name is Mel and prior to getting the COVID vaccine, I was extremely fit, healthy and strong. I was running every day, doing boxing and pilates and my aerobic capacity was first class.
I had an average heart rate of 45-50 and was in great condition. As I am only 26 years old, I thought that this was pretty much normal.
I was working as a flight attendant while also studying nursing and life was great.

I was very much against getting this vaccination as I was suspicious of the lack of testing and knew that I was at an extremely low risk of getting COVID due to my age and health status.
I was however mandated by my employer as well as by the nursing body. I put it off as long as I could but eventually, in order to keep my job and continue my studies, I was forced to get it.

I had my first vaccination on 31 July 2021. That night, my temperature spiked to 38 degrees. I also developed a massive pressure headache (I never normally get headaches),and I was sweating and shivering whilst feeling weak and fatigued for the whole night. The next day, I felt drained and very fatigued. It was like I had been on a huge bender the previous night.

Three days later, I had to take two days off work due to the acute pressure headache, fatigue and dizziness. After that, I just kept on going with daily life, even though the fatigue was constant and the headaches remained unabated. These symptoms remained the same until I had my second vaccination.

I had the second one on 21 August 2021. This was better than my first experience, but the insane headaches remained as did the constant fatigue.
On the 23rd of August, I again took a sick day as the headache, dizziness and fatigue became overwhelming.
On the 24th of August, I went for a run as I normally would but after the run, my heart rate failed to come down as it usually would. It remained at about 110. I could actually feel the increased palpitations and they did not settle. I did some meditation to try and relax and that seemed to help a little bit but it took over an hour for my heart rate to return to normal.
After this, the same symptoms continued, but they were intermittent. One day would be okay and the next day would be terrible. It was very distressing.

On the 24th of December things took a massive turn for the worse. I woke that morning with a catastrophic pressure headache. It felt like my head was exploding. And my arms and legs were numb. My speech was slurred and I had pins and needles in my hands. I called my parents who immediately arranged an ambulance and I was taken to St Vincents Hospital in Melbourne. They diagnosed a migraine, prescribed pain medication and sent me home. I did not mention my fear that this was a vaccine induced injury as I was nervous about their reaction. They did not raise that possibility either. The next day, I just had a really fuzzy head due to the medications but otherwise was okay.

As time went on, the same symptoms kept happening but I was in a little bit of denial and took no further action to get to the root cause of the problem.

The nursing body where I was studying mandated the booster shot. So on the 25th of January I had the third vaccination. The same symptoms kept on happening and I had quite a few days off work when the headaches and fatigue really got to me.
Nevertheless, I carried on with life as best I could under the circumstances.

I fell pregnant in September 2022, which was fantastic news.
My symptoms remained the same at this stage, but my smart watch started going off regularly with alerts about my high heart rate. It was generally over 100 every day as opposed to my previous average of 45-50, so this was a massive concern.

I went to my GP who tested my heart rate and, on that day, it was 80-90 which he said was within normal limits given my pregnancy. It wasn’t however within my normal range. He disregarded me when I said that.  He did no other testing and so life resumed with the ongoing symptoms and no answers.

I had my baby in July 2023 and all went well. At that time, my resting heart rate was typically 100-120 and my symptoms became significantly worse after childbirth. Again, I soldiered on as I was on my own with a tiny baby and I had no choice.

On the 14th of November 2023, things again took a major turn for the worse. I woke up unable to speak, with a numb tongue and I felt like my brain was on pause.
My head was pounding, I was confused and my legs were too weak to hold me up. My heart rate was again elevated and I felt worse than I had ever felt before.

I kept brushing these issues off as I had no time to deal with them with a small baby. But my dad kept pushing me to investigate and to try some natural therapies such as cayenne pepper. There was however, no change in my symptoms.

One day in December 23, I was with my mum and reversing my car. My smart watch started going nuts as my heart rate was between 120 and 130 at that time. My mum was seriously concerned and so I went to see my GP on the 18th. He gave me a referral for blood tests and for a Holter monitor to check my heart, but sadly, again due to lack of time, I did neither.

On 22 December 2023 I was making the bed and my smart watch told me that my heart rate was now 140. I felt really unwell and was seeing spots so I sat on the couch. I could actually feel the increased palpitations and my heart rate oscillated between 140 and 150 all day. It was a very hot day but I was shivering so I turned off the air conditioning.
I lay down to rest but the heart rate kept going up to 150 and my temperature went to 37, then 38 in a short time. I knew I was not okay, but then my heart rate went up to 200 and I started to panic. I called my mum as well as my GP as I did not know what to do. I was suffering from acute brain fog and was slightly delirious. My heart rate then spiked to 211.
My mum called an ambulance and the paramedics performed a procedure designed to bring my heart rate down but it remained high. They then took me to the hospital again and my mum came with me as she had to look after my daughter who was still breastfeeding.

The hospital did many tests but were very reluctant to provide results or answers. My electrolytes were low and my blood pressure dropped to 70/40. I was sweating and shivering and barely knew what was going on. They did blood tests overnight but I received no results.  They wanted to do a CT scan with contrast which I was loathe to do due to possible cancer risks in the future, but I ended up with no choice. They suspected blood clots but this was not confirmed.

The ICU head nurse then took me to ICU as she suspected a thyroid issue. They prescribed carbimazole and propranolol as well as vitamin D.
My heart rate finally came down and my blood pressure normalized, but I was aware that this improvement was only due to the drugs. I felt that they were just masking the problem rather than solving it. I was discharged form hospital on 24 December on my own volition.

I was told to continue taking the carbimazole and propranolol, but I did not do so on a regular basis as I was distrustful. I tried using an iodine spray that is supposed to help thyroid issues but was concerned that the high salt content might be an issue. I am still researching this and other natural therapies.

I saw a peer reviewed article about how Graves disease can be caused by the COVID vaccine and I asked my GP about it. He was non-committal and suggested that I speak to the endocrinologist that I am seeing in April this year.

My thyroid levels are now trending down but my heart rate still spikes up and down regularly. It is hit and miss – one good day followed by a bad day.
I can no longer do intense exercise such as running, but I do my post-partum exercises daily. Even doing those, my heart rate spikes and I get dizzy. But again, it is intermittent.

I have not yet had an MRI and I plan to ask my GP about that as well as possibly getting a referral to a cardiologist. I will also shortly book in to see a naturopath for another opinion.

As of now, the headaches are ongoing. I get them every second day, and on those days, it feels like my head is going to explode. My heart rate is also all over the place from day to day and my body does not feel like it used to. I know I am very unwell and it is extremely frustrating not to be able to get answers. It makes me angry that there is so much ignorance and avoidance within the medical fraternity.

Being cheeky and sarcastic, I say “Don’t worry, roll up your sleeves, its safe, we aren’t trying to reduce the population”.

I only wish I had not allowed myself to be coerced.
