Vaccine Injury of Assetou Cisse-Smith

What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

Perfect. Very active at work, home, and in the community.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I received the 1st vaccine on January 22, 2021, and the debilitating pain and other symptoms started 4 days later January 26, 2021. I went to my doctor’s office the next day. They prescribed a pain medication and dismissed everything I told them about the vaccine. The medication didn’t help I called the office and told them that they sent another prescription to the pharmacy which I didn’t not help either so I went to ED. Ever since I have been calling my doctor’s office at least once a month for symptoms that are happening up until now. I had so many hospital visits during the last three years than my entire life. I am seeing rheumatologist, cardiologist, neurologist, ophthalmologist-neurologist, and many other specialists over these past three years. None of my doctors know what’s going on including my PCP.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

People need to recognize that the post vaccination syndromes are real and acknowledge, so that research can be done about the conditions.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Dismissing the facts

What would you like others to know?

From January 26, 2021 up until now I keep on developing new symptoms every day. I don’t know when it will end?
