A 28-year-old businesswoman from Reading, England was diagnosed with a Functional Neurological Disorder, a condition directly at the intersection of neurology and psychiatry, after receiving the Pfizer COVID vaccine.
Katrina Hermez shared on her social media that her life turned upside down after getting the vaccine last June 27th. Katrina took the vaccine because she assumed it was the right thing to do as told by the government.
“I have to speak out… I had my first jab because I was made to believe it was the correct thing to do by our government. But a week after now, it changed my life and turned it on its head. I am now having – full-body paralysis, seizures, speech issues, nearly diagnosed amnesia, migraines every day, blood in my ear, vertigo, nausea, and more. I want my story to be heard to save others from this happening to them,” Katrina wrote on her Instagram account two weeks ago.
“They said it would protect me, they said it would protect others, they said it could save us, they said we need at least one, then two, now three. How many more until we’re all grieving?” she continued.
On Wednesday, Katrina posted another update on her condition. She stated in her caption that she will not give up sharing the truth.
Read her latest update:
You know when you get that feeling… deep in the pit of your stomach… when something feels so wrong that you don’t know where to turn…
Now I’ve come to a point in this suffering where i don’t care what medical science you have read on google, which book you’re going by, which doctors surgery has set this agenda or which news channel you’ve watched…
I am being neglected by medical professionals scared to lose their jobs
I am vaccinated and injured.
I was a normal 28 year old girl, who ran her own spa business from home, did art, kept physically fit and felt well within myself everyday.
In June 27th 2021 I made the decision like millions of other people to have the Pfizer vaccine because I believed, (as don’t forget…we were told) this would protect us and the people around us. Now a proven lie.
And 5 days later my injury symptoms began and have now amounted to:
the use of a wheelchair, 10 episodes of temporary paralysis that lasts hours to days on end, transient Amnesia, 3 types of non epileptic seizures, Migraines, Cluster headaches, Joint pain, neuralgia, Pins and Needles, Burning pain all over body, Chest pains every other day, Noise sensitivity, Light sensitivity, Skin sensitivity, Severe confusion, Severe dizziness, Ringing in ears, Speech /stutter, slurred, repeating words, Palpitations, Dissociation, Blood in my ear, Black sores on mouth walls, Intermittent hearing loss, Blurry vision, Muscle Stiffness, Rashes, Extreme exhaustion.
This is not COVID. This is not long COVID. This is a direct injury from the Pfizer vaccine.
I will not be silenced, I will not be told I dont have proof, I will not be laughed at, I will not be condescended and I will not be undermined by people who feel offended by this misreckoning.
I dont care whether you’re vaccinated or unvaccinated at this point. I care about my health and the health of other people and children who are or potentially are going to be harmed by this experiment.
If you think this is “viral symptoms” or “all in my head”…. history will not be on your side.
I will not stay quiet. I am vaccine injured. And I will not give up sharing my truth.
This is Katrina Hermez. This is her life now. She was “promised protection” but now lives with this reality. Katrina wants YOU to share her story because she wants everyone to SEE the risks for themselves. I’m making sure her story is heard and not hidden. Thread 👇🏻 pic.twitter.com/6gcGJn6vqm

According to her fundraising campaign, it all began last July, days after she took the vaccine. Her symptoms began with brain fog, vertigo, skin rashes, and she started to feel sick. As time passed, it became more severe, her mental health crashed, and she experienced her first seizure.
In November, she was found on the floor at her workplace completely paralyzed and unable to speak. Paramedics were called and she was rushed to the hospital and stayed there for a week. The doctors initially thought she had a stroke. The doctors conducted CAT and MRI scans on her and she was diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorder without any further assessments.
From her fundraising campaign:
My life has completely been turned upside down and now I cannot leave the house without someone’s help and my walking stick. I seem to be getting a multitude of new symptoms as the days go by. Blood in my ear, my ears aching every day and the ringing and dizziness doesn’t go away. I struggle to write emails or read because most of the time I’m completely dissociated from life and I get frequent migraines after reading. I’ve had four episodes of severe temporary full-body paralysis and slurred speech that takes a while to recover from. I’ve also had four less severe episodes that involve having my friends find me on the floor or unable to move and respond normally and having to pick me up. That would be a total of eight episodes since November. I went from being a really healthy 28-year-old girl who didn’t get sick for three years (not even a cold) that runs nearly every day to needing a walking stick/ sometimes a wheelchair and being assigned carers as well as not being able to work at all because of my illness.
