← Return to AIHA Hemolytic Autoimmune Anemia and Covid-19 Vaccine reactions

Comment receiving replies

I received my vaccine in March of this year and within several months, I became to feel extremely exhausted all the time. I was recently diagnosed with anemia and we have not been able to determine why I am anemic and what is the underlying cause. It took me a few to figure out what the one major change was in the last couple of months, which was the vaccine. I have had 2 iron transfusions and neither has worked. I am chronically exhausted, my hair is falling out, my eyes are constantly glazed over and red. I have brain fog and when I can fall asleep, I sleep hours and hours on end.

I was researching what could be a cause of this and came across the article on AIHA Hemolytic Autoimmune Anemia and Covid-19 Vaccine reactions. I have struggled with my doctors to find a reason and I honestly think this could be the cause. What do I need to do to determine this? I have never felt this way before and this is every day now that I feel like the walking dead. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Hello @catparker5, Welcome to Connect. So sorry to hear you had the bad reaction to the vaccine. It does seem a little strange that the reaction didn't occur until several months after the vaccine. Here's some information I found that discusses the topic:

A Case of Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia Following COVID-19 Messenger Ribonucleic Acid Vaccination: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8200779/

Did you report the side effects to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS): https://vaers.hhs.gov/?

I made the decision not to receive the COVID vaccine after reading that anymore with autoimmune or lung issues should not get the vaccine. FREE mRNA can signal danger to your immune system and drive inflammatory diseases. The mRNA is new technology, and they do not know what the short term or long term effects will be. Everyone has to decide for themselves what they think is best for them, and I have decided that the risks far outweighs the benefits of the vaccine for me. Kathryn
