My life has changed very much. For many months I was suffering dizziness and fainting and I sometimes suffered loss of consciousness, for that reason I could not go to school or live a normal life as I used to do. I was also admitted to hospital and was there for almost a month. Ever since I received the vaccine I have lost strength and physical vitality and cannot do any exercise. At the moment I am no longer suffering from dizziness but I suffer from painful cramps in my legs which prevent me from sleeping and getting a good rest. Consequently I sometimes feel tired and for this reason I cannot go to school. I also have very irregular periods (and don’t have them very often). Others: I cannot taste salty flavours and I have alternative sensitivity to the cold/heat.
