I received my one and only Covid vaccine on 19 March 2021. I work in the dental field in Ontario and was very hesitant to get it but an employer in one of the offices where I work was pressuring me to get it. He told me we were at a heightened risk working in people’s mouths, and that as an employee of his, he strongly recommended it. Not only is my employer a dentist but he is also an MD.
Within days of receiving the vaccine, the lymph nodes on the left side of my body where I was jabbed all swelled up: on my neck, in my clavicle area, on my chest, and even my breast. This went on for a week or so and caused me concern so I went to my doctor to discuss it. They said it was normal, and a good sign that the vaccine is working.
I was very worried though. Two months had passed and there was no improvement. I went back to my doctor and demanded further investigation.
They sent me for an ultrasound which I was told showed nothing. It took about two and a half months for the lymph nodes to go back to normal on my left side. As soon as this settled down I started getting migraines worse than I have ever experienced in my life. They were so bad I was hospitalized twice for pain medication to stop me constantly vomiting. Up until then, I had never vomited from migraine. These migraines are still with me today.
I’m taking prescription medication for them. I sought treatment with a neurologist, who told me that since the vaccine was introduced she has been seeing more migraine patients than ever before.
Yesterday I lost another day of work due to a random vomiting migraine. The dentist I work for didn’t even respond to my message about being ill and still has not. I have lost maybe three or four days of work since I got the vaccine due to the migraines.
Anyone who could experience my migraines would say three or four days of lost work in a year and a half is amazing considering the level of pain. My boss ignores me though as if I am an inconvenience although I am suffering these symptoms from the jab he pushed me to get.
I also want to note that when my lymph nodes first returned to normal this same employer pressured me to get a second vaccine and said that he would drive me personally after work one day to ensure I did it. I refused to get it and will never give in to this poison again!
