Life Threatening? Yes
Write-up: I received my second shot of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine on Saturday, March 20th at noon. Saturday at midnight, I woke up in full body sweats and aches. I took two ibuprofen and tried to go back to sleep, but I would toss and turn in full body sweats and aches for the next 8 hours. I took another 2 ibuprofen around 400am. Sunday morning I woke up feeling OK, not great, but OK. Sunday night ? it was very strange ? the full body chills and aches came back. Not as bad as Saturday night, but they returned nevertheless. I had another restless night of sleep, and I took another two rounds of ibuprofen to try and help me sleep. Monday I woke up feeling OK again. Monday evening, around 8:00pm, I could feel the full body chills and aches coming back again, creeping up slightly. This time, I also felt a mild burning in my upper chest and throat. I went to bed around 8:00pm, then woke up at 9:00pm, this time in a lot of pain. It felt like burning and a stabbing sensation in my throat and upper chest. I took some ibuprofen, and tried to fall asleep. I tossed and turned in agony for the next few hours, apparently falling asleep at some point around 1:00am. At 2:00am I woke up in severe pain again. It was very bad, like an 8 out of a 10. It felt like a burning and stabbing sensation in my lower throat and upper chest. I had my wife call 911, and I was brought to hospital in an ambulance. I would stay in the hospital for the next 3 days, getting discharged Thursday at around 5:00pm. I had peak troponin levels of 5, so I basically had a moderate heart attack. I had a cardiac catherization procedure done, as well as a cardiac MRI. The cardiac catherization procedure showed I had no blockages at all in my arteries. The cardiologists diagnosed me with myocarditis. The cardiologists told me they believe the vaccine triggered a heavy response from my auto immune system. The response from my auto immune system in turn caused my heart to become inflamed, giving me myocarditis. It was a horrible experience, and my doctors are convinced that it was brought on by the second coronavirus vaccine shot that I received.
