Ongoing symptoms since covid vaccine, what should I do?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi all, hoping for some advice or at least a point in the right direction as to where to seek help for my 33 year old husband who previously has had no medical issues, aside from the odd sports injury.

After receiving the 2nd Pfizer vaccine in August 2021, he woke the following morning with stroke like symptoms (numbness and paralysis on his left side, unable to walk or lift his arm, and no feeling from the chest down) he also later developed swelling on the left side of his abdomen, as well as severe discomfort in this area. After multiple A&E visits, he was told it was nothing to do with the vaccine, was accused of making it up as none of his symptoms correlated or made sense, and was referred for CT and MRI scans, all came back clear.

We submitted an application to the NHS vaccine claims which concluded that due to probability, these issues were not caused by the vaccine.

He couldn't walk without the aid of crutches, was extremely fatigued and generally very weak compared to his former self. He has taught himself to walk again without medical support, although still has issues with mobility when tired or has to walk for longer than a few minutes. The abdominal issues are still present with symptoms progressing and new symptoms appearing as time goes on.

Following blood tests organised by GP'S he was found to have abnormal liver readings and was referred to a liver specialist, who following further blood tests and scans, then ruled this out as being the cause of any of his symptoms, but instead confirmed that he had the same level of fatty liver as 72% of the human population and my husband was signed off from this line of investigation with advice to lose weight, but no further steps mentioned and no follow up from GP'S.

My husband can no longer exercise, let alone play sports, which he loved. His role at work has had to be adapted, as he had a physical job and his everyday life is affected by these symptoms he has to try and manage,without understanding what and why this is happening or what long term effects there may be.

The question is now, where or how do we get help or at least find somewhere or someone to help diagnose what has happened?
