My name is Bernadette
I am 52 years old. I had my 3rd Pfizer vacine when I was 51 years old.
My vaccine was voluntary. In saying that people of NZ were made to feel fearful and we would do anything to be safe.
I received this text on the 12th Feb 2022

I received my 3rd Pfizer vaccine on the 16-2-22 I remember the date as it was my daughter’s 15th Birthday.
A guy named Charlie gave me my vaccine as I held my right arm out of the car window for the vaccine. It was a drive through vaccine. I was in my car at the Pavillion carpark in Hanmer Springs.
The day after the vaccine my arm felt tight at the vaccine site and I felt a little tired.
The next day I felt completely exhausted.
I can best describe it as my batteries were completely flat.
Since this I have had multiple GP visits, with fatigue, feeling of reduced exercise capacity, breathlessness, sore mouth, chest tightness, burning sensation in my feet and other symptoms. I have been referred to specialists.
Firstly to a Rheumatologist as it was thought I had Lupus. I do not have Lupus but when the Rheumatologist examined me I had a heart rate of 42bpm. He gave me forms for a blood test and a chest Xray that he wanted done that day.
ECG 5 June (Hanmer Springs Health Centre)
Sinus rhythm. No significant morphological abnormalities. Frequent unifocal ventricular premature beats.
I was then referred to a Heart Specialists. I had an echocardiogram on the 15th June 2022. My heart showed no evidence of cardiomyopathy,myocardial or pericarditis.
Left and Right Ventricular normal.
Atria upper limit normal size.
No significant valvular disease.
Holter Monitor 15 June 2022
Mean heart rate 80bpm. Minimum heart rate 49bpm. Maximum heart rate 156bpm. Frequent ventricular premature beats and infrequent supraventricular prematurebeats. Runs of ventricular bigeminy and premature ventricular premature beats associated with chest tightness and breathlessness. No sustained supraventricular tachycardia with heart rate 156bpm, query atrial fibrillation.
10th August 2022
I have had another two Holter Montitors with similar results.
I was taking Metoprolol CR 23.75mg at the time of my third Pfizer vaccine to stop migraines and for high blood pressure.
Other medications I tired to control my symptoms from the vaccine have been Metoprol 47.5mg Diltiazem 120mg and Verapamil 120mg
None of the above medication worked effectively.
I have stopped taking medication and now my GP wonders if I have Long Covid which is not possible as I had the above symptoms before I had Covid.

My symptoms are unchanged but I have found ways to get through my day and achieve tasks.
