When the vax causes relapse

“It took me nearly 4 years to get my life back, only to lose it again in an instant”

I contracted very severe neuroborreliosis after tick bites at Narrabeen in 2018, a week before my 30th birthday. I couldn’t see, stand or swallow and was having seizures every day. After 2 months of IV antibiotics, a trip for hyperthermia in Germany and a further 2 years of oral antibiotics I was well enough that I had returned to full-time work. In September this year I was back running, swimming and working full-time, not 100 percent but near symptom free, healthy and feeling like I had pulled off the greatest escape against the odds.

But then I made the worst and most catastrophic decision of my life…
I had the Pfizer COVID shot.

Six days after my first dose I became extremely unwell and have deteriorated right back to the worst days of my illness with seizures, blurry vision, tremors, extreme weakness and completely scrambled brain again. I can’t believe what has happened. My worst nightmare. I am disabled again.

I’ve had to stop working and move into care again.

I just wish I could turn back the clock and hadn’t got the damn shot. It took me nearly 4 years to get my life back, only to lose it again in an instant.

I know now I will never be the same, never get back to that level, let alone remission. All for a shot I didn’t want anyway. I write to prevent others making the same mistake I did, under the incredible pressure and the ill-advice on the appropriateness of the mRNA shots for Lyme patients. My Lyme literate doctor told me to get Pfizer, not AstraZeneca. That one piece of ill-advice has cost me my entire life. I’m back on IV antibiotics but I wish I didn’t have to face this awful long road again now.

Mine is not an isolated case. I know of a doctor who says they have seen many severe relapses and reactions in Lyme patients to the mRNA vaccines. Even AstraZeneca could be safer and Novavax looks like the best choice. However they are not without risk either.
