Diagnostic Lab Data: EKG and ultrasound, they found fluid around my heart.
CDC Split Type:

Write-up: I started having heart pain about two weeks after getting the vaccine, it escalated very quickly. I was soon having severe heart pain every 20 minutes, and I pushed through this for a few days before I became concerned and couldn''t do my day to day actions with constant stabbing heart pain. I had no prior illnesses or health issues. I went in to my local PMC who gave me an EKG and got me a ultrasound on the area, they then said they say some fluid around my heart, I was diagnosed with pericarditis. They said this was very weird for a healthy 18 year old, and usually I would be seriously ill before this happened. A few months have passed, the treatment has not worked and now I''m going through more medication and testing.

The batch number was not reported and has been requested. Concomitant medications included fish oil for cholesterol. On 07-APR-2021, around at 01:00 AM, the patient started having headaches and flu-like symptoms that he could manage without medication. On 14-APR-2021, in morning, he had severe muscle cramps (calves and feet), end of thumb going numb and left side of the face completely numb (bottom half of the cheek and underneath the throat). Also had severe headaches (scale 8/10), which was very unusual for the patient. The patient called his PCP who referred him to a local clinic, they drew blood and did a chest X-ray based on the symptoms. Chest X-ray revealed mild bronchitis. Doctor suggested him to go home and stay hydrated. On 14-Apr-2021 (during the night) , patient woke up with muscle cramps in legs and feet, could not sleep because of the severity of the cramps (scale 7 to 8/10) and severe headaches (scale 8/10), could not stay laying down. On 15-Apr-2021, patient visited physician''s office. Physician prescribed him steroids (prednisolone) and told him he had an acute inflammatory response to the vaccine and now has low level inflammation in pericardia and meninges (verbatim "inflammation in the bag around the brain and bag around the heart"). Patient''s blood pressure (BP) was at 148/130 (his BP baseline was around 120/75) and heartrate was around 96 bpm (baseline 52-55 bpm). Doctor prescribed propranolol. Heart rate went down with propranolol, but Blood pressure was still high, so Doctor switched to losartan 25 mg. He was diagnosed with tachycardia (heart pounding out of chest).

On 22-APR-2021, patient went to the emergency room, because blood pressure (BP) was 195/138. After receiving treatment, blood pressure was 130/85 and patient went home. Couple of days later, BP was high again, doctor added amlodipine 5 mg to losartan 25 mg and referred the patient to a cardiologist who then increased the dosage to amlodipine 10 mg.

Primary care physician had prescribed magnesium supplement for the cramps. The action taken with covid-19 vaccine ad26.cov2.s was not applicable. The patient recovered from flu-like symptoms, had not recovered from muscle cramps (legs), and the outcome of end of thumb going numb, half side of the face completely numb, mild bronchitis, acute inflammatory response, low level inflammation in pericardia, high blood pressure, could not sleep and low level inflammation in meninges was not reported. This report was serious (Other Medically Important Condition).; Sender''s Comments: V0: 20210608039 -covid-19 vaccine ad26.cov2.s- low level inflammation in pericardia, low level inflammation in meninges, high blood pressure.

Write-up: Please note patient did not receive vaccine at this organization. Submitting to VAERS following ED visit and admission. 23 y.o. male with no previous past medical history presented 6/10 with complaints of dizziness, presyncope and syncopal episodes. Initial fainting episode was in January 2021 upon receiving sutures the laceration on his his right index finger. At the time he reports that although he passed out he did not really lose consciousness as he was aware of his surroundings. Things seem to go fine for a while until the day after he received his J &J vaccine in April 28, 2021. Reports having the usual post vaccine symptoms such as myalgias and malaise but the following day while at the barbershop he reports having another syncopal episode. He reports a prodromal phase that includes shortness of breath, numbness of the lips and a generalized warm feeling. During this episode he denied any loss of consciousness, as he was able to unlock his phone and respond to the people around him. He denies any myoclonic movements or jerks. He denies any postictal symptoms. Patient has been seen in the ED 3 times within the last week. On 6/10/2021 while at the base clinic, he reports feeling like he was about to pass out and was brought to the emergency department for further evaluation. He denies any nausea, vomiting, headaches. He endorses some chest pain when he lays down flat that is relieved by leaning forward. He denies any recent illness. Denies any new medications or changes to his diet or hydration status. The day prior to admission, his ED visit for weakness and presyncope occurred shortly after PT eval at the base. He felt very lightheaded and he attributes that to not eating and drinking prior to the PT eval. Work-up in the ED included EKG which showed ST elevation in leads V3 and V4 in a biphasic pattern. CT chest which showed no PE or consolidation pneumonia or pleural effusion. CMP was remarkable for potassium of 3.4 serum bicarbonate of 21. CBC was normal. CK was slightly elevated at 913. Troponin was negative. Lactic acid was 1.9. UA with no concern for infectious process. UDS was negative. Due to EKG findings reported above, patient was discussed with cardiologist who recommended that patient be admitted for observation. Upon further discussion with patient, it was clear that his chest discomfort improved when leaning forward, and his EKG was consistent with diffuse ST elevation. With a clinical diagnosis of acute idiopathic pericarditis, patient was initiated on colchicine 0.6 mg twice daily and ibuprofen 800 mg 3 times daily. He is to continue his colchicine therapy for 3 months and his ibuprofen therapy for 1 to 2 weeks with a gradual de-escalation of that ibuprofen by 200 mg/week. He has follow-up with cardiology scheduled. Cardiology mentioned in their notes that they would obtain an echocardiogram to rule out structural heart disease and recommended a 2-week event monitor upon discharge with a 3-week follow-up with tilt table testing and exercise stress testing. Cardiology had high suspicion for possible vasovagal. Echocardiogram was unremarkable without pericardial effusion.
