Madeline Johnson, age 21, works closely with covid patients in a hospital and decided to get the Pfizer vaccine as a precautionary measure but, after the second round in March, “all hell started breaking loose.”
She immediately spiked a high fever which went on for a number of days.
Over the weeks that followed, the right side of her body began breaking down; pain and numbness spread through her wrist, fingers, and palm and then down to her right leg. She lost mobility in her joints, lost her small motor skills, and experienced debilitating fatigue.
The same set of symptoms suddenly spread to the left side of her body overnight. Weeks later, she’s no better off, still dealing with the above along with fevers, nausea, headaches, swollen knees, and full body tremors.
After extensive testing (several MRI’s, CT, spinal tap, and 46 lab tests) her medical team has ruled out some conditions such as stroke and multiple sclerosis, but she has tested positive for eleven autoimmune diseases.
These tests can return false positives, so the next step is for Madeline to meet with specialists to pinpoint the exact issues she is dealing with.
Her family is hoping to get in touch with others who have had a similar reaction to the vaccine, and might have helpful information to share with them.
“My daughter was a spunky, happy healthy 21 year old pre-med college student, and now her world has been turned upside down.”
— Marah Johnson, Madeline’s mother
I’ve shared a lot of similar stories at this point and I can’t keep up. Everyday, I come across more.
