My name is Nicole and I am 38 years old.
I have struggled throughout my life with back pain after having a serious car accident in 1999 and was almost paralysed. I therefore made it my life mission to get as healthy as I could to accommodate my injury. I challenged myself physically over the years which led to a few minor injuries along the way, but they were all physical injuries.
Before I had the vaccine I was at my peak fitness and was healthy and felt stronger than I had felt in years. I challenged myself, despite my back fusion, to do F45 and I was on hooked getting up at 5 a.m. three to six days a week. I worked as an optical assistant and had my own small home business, as well as running a house for my beautiful family and three fur babies. Life was great!

When the COVID vaccine was announced my employer mandated it, so I resigned at the end of Oct 2021. In September 2021, my husband started his own carpentry business and, as I was
helping him with the business, I couldn’t risk the $100,000 fine. I also didn’t know when I was going to see my family again as they live all over the world. So sadly, I had to comply.

In February 2022, I had my first vaccination. Initially, I had a sore arm and a bad headache but a few days later, I developed heart palpitations, terrible chest pains and suffered great difficulty breathing. The pain was so bad that my jaw was shaking.
I went to see my GP who immediately did an ECG and said that my heart seemed to be okay. I told her that I suspected that the vaccine had caused this and whilst she never confirmed that, she stated that I probably had some inflammation around the heart. She prescribed anti-inflammatory tablets.

These symptoms lasted a few weeks then appeared to settle so I lined up for my second vaccination on 11 March 2022. After this one I felt okay with just a little nausea and a tight chest. But overall I had fairly minimal symptoms. I pretty much got on with life, working on-site with my husband, going to F45 classes and carrying out all my normal day-to-day activities.

In December 2022, I contracted COVID and suffered all the standard symptoms such as brain fog and fatigue. All I could do was sleep for that period until I recovered.

Life suddenly changed for me in January 2023. I developed terrible pain in my sternum and my heart rate rose to insane levels.
I again saw my GP and she did another ECG. She also sent me to WA Cardiology for a stress test, an echocardiogram and a 24-hour Holter monitor. She also gave me a referral to a cardiologist, but the wait time for that was five months.

Myocarditis was suggested, so they did blood tests. But the relevant marker for that was negative, so they suggested that it was simply stress and anxiety. This made me angry as I knew in my soul that it had nothing to do with stress and everything to do with the vaccine.

I started to do my own research to see how I could get the spike protein out of me and followed various vaccine protocols like taking Aspirin. This did seem to reduce the pain somewhat and when I ran out of Aspirin for a few days, the intense pain came back.

I went back to the GP as the pain was still debilitating despite the Aspirin and other natural products that I was taking. I suggested to her that I possibly had clots in my lungs, so she agreed to run a CT angiogram on my lungs. However, the tests showed no clots. She later suggested that perhaps I had costochondritis which is an inflammation of connective tissue and she prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs.

I then started seeing an Ayurveda natural practitioner. She prescribed arjuna and amalaki herbs for my heart and immune system. These herbs did offer some small relief. Despite these efforts however, the pain kept on happening and my heart rate was still crazily high. I felt like I just wasn’t being heard by anyone. It was a frustrating time, knowing that my body was not well, suffering debilitating pain and yet not getting any answers to my concerns.
There were many days then, and still now, where I was teetering on the edge of calling an ambulance due to massive chest pain and a high heart rate. But I just kept on battling as I was not confident that the hospital could help me.

In May 2023, I went to a different GP as my original one had seemingly run out of ideas. She listened to my story and then physically pressed my chest which created massive and instant severe pain. She suggested that perhaps I had an intercostal muscle strain and referred me to a physiotherapist.

When I saw the physio, she said that my breathing seemed very shallow and suggested that perhaps I had a broken sternum from lifting something heavy. I had an X-ray but no broken bones were revealed.

By this stage, after so many months of the same symptoms, I started seeing patterns in my pain cycle and elevated heart rate. It seemed that any time I physically exerted myself, I suffered intense pain the next day. I started doing even more research and spoke to a naturopath who suggested ivermectin. I tried it but it did not seem to make a great deal of difference. The naturopath also tried doing kinesiology and gave me myocardium drops to try. Again, it didn’t seem to make much difference.

In August 2023, I started seeing a Chinese medicine doctor. He could tell my body was fighting off something and told me that he had seen 48 patients the same as me and he was going to fix me. He also gave me creams and oils for my chest. This protocol definitely helped so I went back four more times.

I then saw a third GP and explained that I wanted to get a cardiac MRI as I had read that this was only test that could pick up myocarditis. She said she could give me a referral, but I would have to pay. If I waited to see the cardiologist however, (which by now was only two weeks away), they would most likely bulk bill. Sadly when the time came, I still had to pay $550.

When I finally saw the cardiologist on 19 September 2023, he diagnosed a vaccine injury straight up based on my notes and history. He thought that an MRI may not be necessary, as often they don’t show anything, but he organised one anyway. This was scheduled for the 6th of October 2023.

After the MRI on 6 October, I was unable to see the cardiologist for the results until February 2024, which was an inordinately long period to be kept waiting for such important answers.
I was not happy with this, so I asked the cardiologist if I could get a copy of my test results sent to my GP. When the GP saw the results however, she was uncertain how to interpret them and all she told me was that there was evidence of ‘old’ myocarditis. I thus remained in the dark for another few months while waiting to see the cardiologist.

In the meantime I continued to do research and use recommended protocols. I wanted to try as many things as I could to improve my health and decrease pain and inflammation. I tried things like celery juice, fasting, cayenne pepper shots, raw honey…… basically anything I could do to help myself as wasn’t getting much support. I was, however, still in massive pain on a daily basis and due to my high heart rate, I was constantly scared of having a cardiac arrest.

In November 2023, I also developed a swollen right ankle which persists to this day. No one has been able to tell me what has caused this and there has been no trauma of any kind, so I am at a loss.

In December 2023, I experienced massive stabbing pains and my heart rate jumped up to 130 all of a sudden, for no reason. This frightened me greatly as again, I was scared of having a heart attack.

I then spoke to a fellow vaccine-injured person with the same diagnosis as I have, on an online forum. He recommended his GP who he said was very clued up on vaccine injuries.
I saw him on 8 January 2024 and he referred me to a new cardiologist who I was able to see very quickly. He organised an echocardiogram, ECG and a CT coronary angiogram for 5 February. He also prescribed cannabis oil.

The timeline thus became:
5 Feb 2024 – New tests for new cardiologist.
6 Feb 2024 – See the original cardiologist for the original MRI results.
12 Feb 2024 – See the new cardiologist for results on the most recent tests.

When I finally saw the original cardiologist on 6 Feb 2024, I was by that time a wreck, both physically and emotionally. He then told me that I had a scar on my heart caused by vaccine-induced myocarditis. He said to keep taking the drugs which he had prescribed in September (but which I had not taken….) and gave me a course of antivirals as well as referring me to the Long COVID Clinic for assessment. We discussed my heart rate and determined that my average BPM was 115, which is way too high.
I was so angry at this cardiologist as he had kept me waiting for four months for these results, which I felt was disgraceful.
When I got the diagnosis, I was distraught and in endless tears for many days as I tried to absorb the enormity of my health issues.

Finally, I saw the new cardiologist on 12 Feb 2024.
He told me that due to the scar on my heart, it cannot beat properly and that I am basically like someone who has had a heart attack. He diagnosed both myocarditis and pericarditis as well as POTS. He agreed with the original cardiologist about taking the antivirals and upped my dose of ivabradine.
He explained that there is no cure and that all they can do is treat the symptoms. He also diagnosed nodules on my lungs which he believes are from inflammation.
I asked him what the highest BPM rate is before I should consider going to emergency and he said 150. I have exceeded this number many times in the past but have not been to hospital.

My life has pretty much, been turned upside down. I am continuing to pursue whatever natural remedies I can find in an effort to beat this. The cannabis oil seems to help the pain and I am still taking NAC along with many other natural supplements.

Throughout this two-year nightmare I have done my best to continue with life as much as the pain and fatigue allows me. I still help my husband with his work on an administrative basis, but there are days when I cannot even lift my arms let alone do anything else. I really miss my exercise but unfortunately, I can’t allow my heart rate to be elevated and I have no energy. Also, the pain is so chronic that I often can’t even hold myself up. I joined a yoga studio in September 2023 thinking I could maybe do classes but I sadly found that it was too much for me and had to cancel my membership.

Life as a whole has changed dramatically. I’m used to being such an active person and now I have gone from having a manual job working with my husband and creating a business together, to going back to an optical assistant job three days a fortnight as I cannot manage even three days a week. This is so very hard to admit to myself. But I have to honour myself and do everything I can to beat this. I seriously miss being ‘ME’, but as all my friends and loved ones say, if anyone can get through this, it’s me.

Let’s stand together and share our stories. What they did to us wasn’t right, so let’s take our power back where we can.

  1. Hi Nicole,

    Firstly sorry to hear about your story – however unfortunately it is eerily similar to mine and I am still trying to find answer. Do you mind telling me who your good cardiolist was? I am based in Perth and need some answers!
