Write-up: After receiving the vaccine on 3/31, experienced typical side effects noted such as sore arm, body aches, etc. - however two days after felt numbness and tingling in feet and hands which went away a few days later. On 4/14, the tingling in feet returned. Went to ER on 4/16 as tingling/numbness getting worse and progressing upward to legs; evaluated and sent home. Returned to ER on 4/22 as numbness/tingling continued to progress upward, evaluated and sent home. On 4/25, in addition to constant numbness/tingling, started experiencing tachycardia. Resting heart rate as well as heart rate doing simple tasks was high. Also began experiencing difficulty getting a full breath. Woke up 4/27 to worsening breathing and tachycardia, as well as new feelings of adrenaline rushes and Internal tremors throughout the body. PCP ordered Troponin and D Dimer and D Dimer elevated. Back to ER that day - negative Covid test - CT of chest showed no blood clots; sent home. That evening, resting heart rate was high and elevated even while lying down (90-110 bpm). The next day, 4/28, all symptoms continued and worsened as day progressed. Returned to ER and in the way experienced a pre syncope episode - upon arrival to ER blood pressure was 70/30; stabilized and sent home. Continued tachycardia and another pre-syncope episode that evening. Was referred to neurology and had appointment 4/29; all symptoms remained and were increasingly debilitating. Neurologist determined more testing needed, and was admitted to the hospital for observation/testing. Diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome after head/neck/spine MRI and lumbar puncture, which showed elevated protein. Hospitalized for 5 day course of IVIG and discharged 5/4. Started feeling better for a few weeks, although numbness/tingling in legs/feet never went away. The week of 5/17 started feeling burning in throat/nose/chest and returning tachycardia; returned to ER 5/23, was admitted for observation as D Dimer high again - checked for DVT, all clear; testing and suspicion of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS); discharged 5/25. On evening of 5/30, experienced new concerning neurological tremors and sudden involuntary movements, as well as stiff neck/head. Returned to ER 5/31; evaluated and released. Have continued to experience autonomic nervous system dysfunction, POTS symptoms, tachycardia and bradycardia, constant numbness and tingling in extremities and occasional tingling/numbness in other areas in the body, pressure in head, internal tremors, adrenaline rushes, feelings of burning in throat/chest, suspected reflux; upcoming appointments with an Electrophysiologist and Neuromuscular Doctor for further evaluation.
