family member reactions

My twenty two year old son received his first Pfizer dose on 14/10/21. His reaction was a sore arm from the injection site and down to the lower arm. His second dose was 4/11/21. The reaction to this was more severe. Diarrhea, swollen lymph nodes ( left hand side armpit) which varied from uncomfortable to sore, sore neck and headaches. Unfortunately my son only admitted to these after me noticing he wasn’t well and querying whether these symptoms came after the vaccine.These lasted until yesterday 8/11/21. He is the only person in our household that has had the vaccine and knows our views are contrary to his. It was very upsetting for me and his father that he felt he had to hide this information from us and suffer alone. I am sure the reactions he had were more severe than what he told us.

My younger brother, 31 yrs received his first vaccine with no reactions. 2nd dose resulted in irregular heart beat, loss of breathe and feeling faint. Visited Hora Te Pai, Kapiti Coast.  Dr was concerned but said they couldn’t warrant a heart test because of the cost. He was rung after hours by a senior Dr that asked him to come in the next day for tests which they were now willing to perform but stated it would be done (under the table), implying he keep the test to himself. Thankfully his reactions to the vaccine are gone now.

I feel so many people are getting severe adverse reactions but are embarrassed to tell anyone because they felt forced into receiving it in the first place to maintain freedom of movement, non judgement and retaining their jobs. I hope you can use this data. If I can get my son and brother to consent to the information I have given you, I will.

Severe vaccine reaction after both covid vaccines

Male. 42 years old.

After my 1st vaccine I could not fall asleep for two weeks. Severe insomnia and a fast pounding heart. I only slept once my body was exhausted. I returned to normal after approximately 2 weeks.

Six weeks later I had my 2nd vaccine. I have been unwell for 4 weeks now. Within minutes of the injection my heart took off racing and pounding, and I began to feel tired. I had insomnia for a few days and terrible nausea for a week. I was too sick to work for the following week. My GP did blood tests and an ECG. Bloods came back normal and the ECG was after my heart had calmed down. I was sweating for a week, Ive had a sore stomach and loss of appetite for 4 weeks, my stomach makes sounds it never made previously,  constant headaches, loss of balance, sensitivity to light and noise, I’m having trouble concentrating, trouble driving my car and trouble riding my bike because I lose all feeling of my bike below me. All of my joints still hurt. I’m constantly tired and fatigued. I sleep well but wake up tired and irritable with a headache. My nose began running uncharacteristically, then stopped.

reactions ongoing 6 weeks later

On day 2 post Covid vaccine no. 2 I experienced a racing heart, blurred vision and heart pain. I went straight to the Doctor, my husband drove and was seen by a nurse who was very concerned and asked the Doctor to come in and see me. The Doctor said that it was NOT Covid vaccine related and it was not on the list of reactions.  Since then I have had daily headaches a cough, sore throats, lack of appetite, a lumpy left arm, dizziness and lack of concentration.

I was vaxxed on the 15th of Sept. It is now the 8th of Nov with no end in sight to my reaction.

Pericarditis: Adverse reaction to Pfizer Heart Palpitation, blood clogging

It’s been since August I’m fighting to get some help to see a Cardiologist.
In August after few days I had my first dose I was checking my email and suddenly I felt strange and my head start to spin.
My blood pressure was
110 Pulse at rest
NOTE: I don’t use drugs and occasionally not always 1 beer a week! Now nothing due to medications Arvostatin and Propronol.
I was fit and lifting weights at list 4 days a week and never ever had fatigue, blood pressure spikes or any other health issue.
So Ambulance crew came and they did an EGC and a line was abnormal but they said was ok. They stayed 40 minutes or so waiting for my blood pressure. I though was just an episode, even if strange cause never ever had such thing in my life ever. That night I started to have tremors when I was lying down, and couldn’t sleep much also due to the heart palpitations.Since then always headhaces and dizziness especially when I was waking up in the morning, feeling really down with no power at all not even to open a bottle of water to drink. My heart was beating very fast even after opening a kitchen cabinet, absolutely crazy to me. Never ever felt like this in my life !
I asked to see my Doctor and they checked my blood pressure and was fine.
After a week (15 August) same thing, blood pressure spiked, my nails were purple and my heart was beating very fast, I called health line and they told me to immediately go to Emergency Room or call an ambulance.
I went to the Botany Medical Centre Eastcare. They checked my pressure which was high done an ECG, again a line was abnormal but they said was in general ok.
Doctor asked me if any from  my family suffered high blood pressure, and my Mum does actually. He said you probably need to start medication. I said ok. Anyway he said need to do the Troponin test full blood test too.
Values were ok strangely no high cholesterol.
I contacted my Doctor again and he prescribed me anti depressive pills which I refused to take, I was very scared while reading side effects. I explained I’m not anxious and not shaking at all during the day, I go to sleep and as soon as I lay down I have tremors and my heart start to beat fast. I begged my Doctor to see a Cardiologist cause something strange on my heart and I can feel the beating all the time, even in my head when I lay down on my bed.
So I carry on but I can’t sleep and cannot get better as days goes by. I see the Doctor again on the 1 of September and I asked him to please hear my Heart with the stethoscope. He heard something really strange, so I told him I know cause I can hear my heartbeat all the time which is not normal. So I asked him if I can have a MRI or CT on my heart. He prescribed me an Xray. I called Middlemore and they were fully booked and couldn’t see me until next week. So I went to a private lab in Botany and paid for it, I was feeling really fatigue and couldn’t even walk up 5 steps I have in front of my house. So I got image result after few hours and seem my heart was not big but looked normal.
So I said ok great, but still puzzled about my heart palpitations and my tremors when going to lay down and sleep.
I was anyway happy that day about the XRay results, watched a couple of movies and just relaxing and monitoring my blood pressure.
I go to bed, after not even a minute my heart start to beat fast. I didn’t care much and turn one side and trying to find a relaxed position and trying to sleep. After less than 10 minutes my tremors get worst, so much that I neeed to seat on the edge of my bed and trying to staying still. Never like this before. Getting worst and worst now I was shaking visibly and soo much I though I had an epilepsy attack, which I never had in my life and nobody from my family or back to 3 4 generations had this issue. My blood pressure was high and I can’t even stop my hands from shaking hard to even open the water bottle. I try to stay calm and waited 10 minutes…………………getting worst so I called the Ambulance.
After more than 1 hours an half they finally came, I explained to them all the history and I told them about Myocarditits/Pericarditis symptoms. They are of course on denial, however they assessed and asked me to go to the hospital cause they were worried anyway cause I was not getting better. Shaking at that time faded down thank god. Still shaking when I wake up every morning.
At the Hospital they did again troponin and full blood test and ECG. Doctor heard something strange on my heart and she tried to see my heart with the ultrasound, she however said she’s not an expert on that and couldn’t see any leaks of fluid apparently. I asked about the strange rumors from my heart, she said my GP need to follow up and asked for a Cardiologist specialist. She strongly recommend immediately to have a holter heart monitor for the next 48 hours. So I asked how do I get it, and she said your GP knows how to request it.
I begged the Emergency room Doctor if I can see a Cardiologist so they can hear my heart and understand what’s wrong, she stated not her job but my GP need to follow up.  I went home and send an eamil to my Doctor to let him know what happened and to request urgently an Holter heart monitor. I tried to call him later on the day. He said due to Covid now the Cardiologist cannot see me and it’s not up to him unfortunately. He said the heart monitor is given by the cardiologist not him. So I said but I cannot see the cardiologist and the Emergency Doctor strongly recommend for me to have one now.
I talked about the symptoms again and that strangely I never had any issues in all my life and my symptoms match perfectly the side effects from the Pfizer vaccine. I also asked him if a normal ECG rule out the Pericarditis/Myocarditis, he said definitely not. So I asked him to have a proper test to rule out that ! Still no further exams as we speak.
Now my heart beat it’s ok thanks to the Propranolol and Arvostatin, which I reduced at just 1 third of pill each day and 2 Propranolol each day before bed. However often during the week at list 3 times a week I need to top up my Propranolol again with 2 more pills in the middle of the night cause palpitations start. Also my tremors didn’t go away and still when I lay down trying to sleep and when I awake in the morning.
Health Minister and Covid Team replied when I submitted adverse reaction to the Vaccine, I asked for exemption due to the adverse reaction to the vaccine and they replied about mask exemption ! Still txt me and email me every second day to ask me to get the second dose of Vaccine! I can’t risk my life, I trusted and believed in the vaccine. I also posted a Video right after I got the jab at the Vodafone Event Centre in Auckland. I was happy and cheerful ! I’m not a no-vax.
Now I can’t run or do any activities cause I feel very fatigue ! Last time I tried to run few meters I had my heart beat at 90 for more than 24 hours and continously ! This is not normal at all.
I did report it on Covid 19 website and also sending an email to the Covid 19 Vaccination Team, they disregard totally ignoring and asking me to go ASAP to get the second dose.
Waiting to see Cardiologist, according to a letter I received no later than middle of November !
I emailed my GP again asking for the exemption, first time was back in September. Ignoring me and instead I had a phone call from his medical centre, harassing me telling me over the phone I have to do the second dose. I explained my GP knows my health condition, they can talk to him. They insist !! Again saying I have to do the second dose, I remained calm and told them again to talk to my Doctor, they didn’t want to let me go keeping me on the phone with aggressive attitude and ignoring not listening just repeating:”You had to do the second dose, for which day would you like to book it”? Unbelievable. I’m lost and unsure I can trust my GP anymore, I understood also now GP are under pressure too. It seems to me they abbandon me and just waiting to something really bad happening to my heart, no other logical expalnations ! So they can carry on and not worry about me ! P.S. Nurses at the Hospital were kind, however the Emergency Department Doctor she said not her job to let me see a Cardiologist.

My dads adverse reaction

Posting on behalf of my dad

My dad got his 2nd shot 5 days ago.

After getting the shot he was okay initially just minor pain at the site. On the second day he was feeling out of sorts with a sore throat sincce then he deteriorated quickly to fever, vomiting, unable to eat, he had extreme pain in both his back and legs to the point where he can no longer stand to walk or go to the toilet. We are now on day 5  he’s been taken to hospital he had to be wheeled in in a chair they rang to say that the back pain is a back infection which is strange as he has never had problems with his back.

My dad is 74 years old right up until he had the 2nd he was walking a km a day on the beach, teaching judo and living an active lifestyle for a retired man

side effects

I am a very health 44yr old female; active, healthy and very health conscious; always passed my WOF yearly bloods with my doctor who stated i am in the top 3% healthy rate for PI community. I had my 2nd vaccination 18/9/21. 2 weeks later i started to experience extreme tightening on my left side of my chest, under my left arm and down my arm. I’ve had heart palpitations and extreme tiredness. 4/11/21 now and i still get the tightening on my left side like something is about to burst & to make it worse it came on when i was driving; i made sure to call my husband as i was freaking out and in case no one had heard from me at least he would know what was happening to me. I am deeply distressed and fight the anxiety of WHAT THE HECK have they put in my body. I 100% regret this vaccine and I don’t ascribe to having even the flu jab; so why did i even give into this? I’m shaken and deeply distressed.

Anaphylactic Reaction after 1st injection

I received my first dose on 24th October 2021 at 3.30pm at a drive through vaccination on Victoria Road, Dunedin. Felt fine then woke up Monday morning with swollen eyelids, and majority of left side of face swollen and hot. During the day, the burning sensation travelled down the left side of my body (injection arm was left arm) and that night it was felt down my left thigh and bum cheek. The swelling went down about 24 hours later but eyes were left very irritated. The week following, my lymph node under my left armpit felt very achey like a bruised feeling when I moved it. My cycle was also thrown out completely and had heavy cramps which is very unlike myself. I am a fit and healthy 30 year old mum and no underlying health conditions. I went to the doctor on Tuesday morning and he issued me a medical exemption stating it would be unwise for me to receive any further covid vaccinations, as the risks to catching it do not out weigh the risk to having a more serious anaphylactic reaction.

Severe reaction

I had my first Pfizer Covid vaccine on September 3rd…it started off with mild flu symptoms and an unusual headache that lasted for a week, and then a week after the vax I started having severe stomach pain, that felt like there was a knife in my stomach, and lost control of my bowels for a day. I also had a high fever for 2 days that ranged between 38.2 and 40 degrees.
It was so bad I was going to call an ambulance, but my GP told me not to go to hospital. She gave me an urgent script of antispasmodic medicine, which helped with the stomach pain. The stomach pain and fever lasted two days. Since a few days after the vaccine I have also been experiencing debilitating pain around my body – shoulders, neck, ribs, back, especially in my hips, legs and my knees have been very painful.
I have been so tired as well, and struggling to get out of bed.
I have had trouble walking because of the pain.
I have managed to work part time from home on the couch, but I am finding it too exhausting and painful to carry out my job full time, or many daily activities.

Just before this latest lockdown I had lunch and spent the afternoon with 2 double jabbed friends. The next day I started to feel like I was coming down with the flu even though no one around me was ill and I’d felt absolutely fine until then. I started to ache and my joints hurt. By the morning of the following day  I literally could not get out of bed my fatigue and aching was so bad. I ended up staying in bed for 4 days, then it took me another 2 weeks before I felt like I was truly recovered. I am certain that this was a result of shedding as my husband who was looking after me didn’t get sick at all.
