I was a fit healthy thirty year old male. Never had any health issues. Loved life before this happened.
On the 10th of August 2021, I got my first Pfizer vaccine. My job made it mandatory. Within an hour I had sharp chest pain, so I took myself to the emergency department of the hospital I work at. Had my bloods and an ECG taken. Both came back fine, my blood pressure was 168/100. They gave me Panadol and Nurofen and sent me home.
Three days later I still had sharp chest pain and high blood pressure so I went to my GP. When he saw my blood pressure, he told me to go straight back to emergency department. I had more bloods, ECG and chest X-ray. This time all came back fine again was sent home again still In insane pain.
I was absolutely miserable and couldn’t do anything for the next three months. I saw public and private cardiac specialists, both of whom wouldn’t warrant a cardiac MRI. I had kidney checks, liver checks and another ten bloods tests and all come back fine. The doctor started me on blood pressure tablets which I’m now off, and colchicine which I’ve been taking for two and half months now.
I’ve given up on seeing so-called health professionals. I had to get my second vaccination on the 30th October 2021 while still having sharp chest pains. The cardiac specialist said it would be fine, and if I didn’t get it I would lose my job. So I got it. I only had normal symptoms from it and it didn’t make my chest pain worse.
I kept taking the colchicine. We are now at the two-and-a-half month mark of that and the five-and-a-half month mark from when it all started. I still have chest pain. It is a lot more manageable, but it gets worse at work. I’m an electrician. I can’t exercise, something which I used to love to do. I have really bad days mentally now and it has changed my life so drastically. So now I’m just stuck with this lingering chest pain that I can’t get help for.
I’m really stressed about my work-place making it mandatory to have a booster now.
Hopefully in another 6 months after a full year of this, I might have no pain at all……
Can only hope.
These health professionals really need to educate themselves on the situation.
