Casey Hodgkinson – 23 Years Old With Severe Adverse Reaction to 1st Pfizer Dose

This is Casey’s story.

This is Casey. I posted her story on Twitter on 11/1/21, but I’d like to share it again, given the severe character limitations Twitter has.

Casey now suffers from full body spasms, unbearable pain, has to use a wheelchair, and now can no longer work.

Casey, A 23-year-old warehouse worker did what her employer and government told her to do, in order to keep her job. Now she can no longer work and her prognosis is grim.

Ms. Casey Hodgkinson received her first Pfizer mRNA injection on September 25, according to her Facebook page. The adverse effects were severe and immediate. Her tongue went completely numb within an hour, followed by minor convulsions. The next day, her arms and legs went numb. Despite all that was going on, Ms. Hodgkinson tried to maintain normalcy. She went to work at Mighty Ape, an online retailer in New Zealand, on Monday, September 27. She works in the warehouse as an order picker and packer via a temp agency.

Co-workers noticed something was wrong with her. She somehow finished the day through sheer exhaustion, pain and weakness in her limbs. Ms. Hodgkinson arrived at work on Tuesday, but left early as the convulsion and weakness in her limbs worsened. She checked into the emergency room on September 29, according to Mike Wilson, who appears to have conducted an interview with Ms. Hodgkinson and her mother. Mr. Wilson made clear that he is “not anti-vax.”

Doctors admitted that Ms. Hodgkinson was having severe adverse reactions to the mRNA shots. But they also said it will “settle soon” and was a sign of “a really good immune response.” All the while, Ms. Hodgkinson was in a wheelchair because she could no longer walk on her own. By Friday, October 1, the convulsions were completely debilitating and extremely painful. Ms. Hodgkinson went to her regular doctor that day. He also exhibited completely aloofness, telling Ms. Hodgkinson that she should “try to go for a walk.”

  • Since Casey first had her vaccine and visited her GP (and several hospital visits) – she has stated the following and this is still sadly taking place in her life (and much of her pain has been dismissed):
  • Stabbing pain, mostly in legs (9 out of 10 and 10 out of 10 pain – some days)
  • pain escalates when Casey walks.
  • extreme fatigue (mental and physical)
  • muscle cramps (tightness)
  • numbness in limbs
  • Casey’s limbs can actually lock up (SO cruel).
  • Joint pain (a lot of joint pain)
  • Pressure in her head (causes mind fog and a lot of pain)
  • Casey has never had anything like this in her life!
  • Full body spasms
  • Vocal tics – which make it hard for her to speak/talk (and this is repetitive)
  • Real and severe mind fog (to the point she is unable to speak or comprehend)
  • Blurred vision
  • Numbness in lips
  • Tingling sensations in feet and hands
  • Electric buzzing feeling throughout her body and it starts at the back of her head (she describes this as being in the back of her head/brain)
  • She suffers agitation and restlessness – ONGOING and Casey has said this is can be for constant periods of time, something she has never faced before
  • Shakes in hands and arms (and throughout the rest of her body)

 Here we are, and we exist. (Please don’t scroll passed us) away from what’s happening to us. We are people. Struggling, hurting and feeling ignored as well as dismissed.. We are feeling alienated from others when we should be getting the help we deserve. I share this to make others aware. So no one else has to go through what we are going through. Sending love and awareness. And hope for compassion.


I’m done being silent!

I’ve recently been dealing with horrible side effects of the Covid Vaccine..

I have on going muscle spams and what the Doctors are referring as Tics. I get bad episodes where my body convulses for ages.. I cant control the tics. . I also get vocal tics, and all over body tics.. and I can hardly walk now. . . I cant drive.. nor work.. which is why I got the Vaccine. So I could work!!.. and now a lot of things have been taken away.. a lot of doors maybe closed for good..

The doctors have admitted it is a bad reaction to the vaccine. And that it has more then likely made underlying issues worse. .

I’ve been dealing with it a few weeks now. With no show of it stopping.

I do not judge anyone.. let me repeat.. I do not judge “Anyones Choice”. You can be anti-Vax or stand with the Vax and I’ll still support you..

What has hurt me most of all.. is family members have treated my issue as if it is nothing.. trying to make themselves feel better. Because they believe in the Vaccine..

I dont care if you are against it or not.. all I wanted was support from family.. not issues.. I’ve had family members laugh at my ordeal. . . I’ve had family members tell others to push my mum and sisters into getting the vaccine. And family members are saying wrong information. And I am sick of it..

You have no idea what I’ve been through.. me and my mum have tried to tell you.. but you ignore it.. and I want others to know the truth. You judge me for my decision to be against the Vaccine after a horrible reaction.. I took the vaccine believing it will help.. and I was wrong. Others have reacted badly also.

When I was rushed to the hospital unable to control the tics unable to walk or communicate. (This bad episode lasted all day). I heard doctors saying how someone else had been rushed in unable to breathe because of a bad reaction to the vaccine.

You people who make people like me feel horrible.. just know that I would never do that to you.. take that how ever you will.

I do not want to change your opinion. I only Want people to know my story. And what I’ve been through.. I’ve been through a lot in my life. Dealt with heartbreak and loss. I’ve lost my dad to cancer… I’ve lost alot of people..

And if I have to loose more people. Because you judge me or treat me bad. Then it is what it is.

So this whole thing has shown me who my true family are.. and that are the ones being there for me.. and not turning a blind eye.

I leave all those who aren’t with me in my past, and hope you have healthy prosperous future..

Theres so much more to say. If you wish to know more. Message me. I will be glad to give more information. And dont worry I wont Judge!

Over all. I’ve become stronger as a person, and will continue to be. 

Sincerely

Casey


This is Casey’s story:

Casey got the vaccine on the 25th September, 2021 – 9.45am

To the best of our ability, this is the timeline of events that took place.

VACCINE DATE: Casey got the vaccine on the 25th September, 2021 – 9.45am

  • Casey received Her 1st Pfizer vaccine at Greenhithe Pharmacy Unichem
  • Approximately, 60 minutes later she got a numb tongue and had minor spasms
  • These lasted the entire afternoon and ran into the evening
  • The next day (26th Sept), Casey received numbness in her legs and arms (lasting all day)
  • Her partner researched how long the side effects could last
  • He was concerned at the fact his companion was shaking
  • On the Monday, 27th September Casey went into work at Mighty Ape
  • she was feeling exhausted all day, the same side effects taking place (people have confirmed)
  • The next day on the 28th, she went into work but early on, in her shift her symptoms got worse
  • Casey was losing strength in her arms and legs and it was getting harder and harder for Casey to walk
  • On the 28/29th, Casey could not walk and she could not go to her job at Mighty Ape (it should be noted, that Casey works for a recruitment agency, of which Might Ape contracted).

1. FIRST TIME VISITING NORTH SHORE HOSPITAL (1 of 4 visits).

On the 29th September, Casey went from quite concerning an emergency level situation, and she was taken to the Emergency Department at North Shore Hospital.

Admitted 1937 & discharged 2147:

(7.37pm discharged 9.47pm – Casey feels she was not take her seriously and she needed a wheelchair).

The initial assessment(verbatim):

“Post covid vaccine side effects. No evidence of myo/pericarditis. Critical management/progress explained all symptoms can be attributed to the vaccine and should settle soon. Shows she’s had a really good immune response.” 

“Doesn’t preclude her from having second dose. May or may not get similar symptoms. Feeling better compared to arrival and post stemetil paracetamol and ibuprofen.”

Casey feels like she was not take seriously.

2. FIRST VISIT TO GP:

On Friday, 1st October, Casey went to her medical centre and met with a doctor. Casey was having a lot of trouble at the time and had to use a wheelchair – she had uncontrollable shakes. When she went into the doctors, her doctor told her “she should try to go for a walk” and to “try to move around”.

On the surface this might seem reasonable. Her partner has since found out, that even a small amount of mental or physical exertion sets Casey off in what is basically a shaking attack, like in the video (this does not seem to be stress related, we believe this is motor function related).

3. SECOND VISIT TO NORTH SHORE HOSPITAL (2 of 4 visits)

Casey presented to North Shore Hospital for a second time on the 4th October, 1035

She was discharged after staying 2 nights on the 6th of October at 1652 (4.52pm)

Casey was havIng trouble comprehending what was happening – throughout her stay at the hospital.

During her second hospitalisation – Casey has described herself as being “out of it” for most of the time – and claims they did not help or take her seriously.

Discharge and noes as follows (History of presenting complaint)

  • “Motor and vocal tics for a few years occurring intermittently every few years” (THIS IS COMPLETELY FALSE, these only started after the vaccine)
  • “Had Pfizer jab since then headaches, muscle aches and myalgias” (Muscle pains that aren’t due to underlying disease – for example, an injury)
  • “report bilateral leg weakness, hard to move legs” “normal speech , eating and drinking ok, vision normal” (CASEY HAS SAID, she WAS VERY CONFUSED & SHE WAS STRUGGLING to comprehend what was going on – so these notes surprise her)
  • “Over the week increasing tics, discharge from ED, recently with impression of myalgia post jab”
  • “Today had worsening tics, thus presented to GP”

CLINICAL MANAGEMENT – 06/10/21

Neurological report – stated that “movements and vocalisation is consistent with tics. Exacerbation of chronic problem – “the floride and dramatic increase of tics, however also raises the possibility of super imposed functional tic disorder”

The psychiatrist review – “tics escalated due to general stress” (THIS IS COMPLETELY FALSE AND Casey denies this).

Casey is being misguided, run amuck and being told that she has “stress” and that this is a combination of mental and “underlying issues”. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

Further notes: “Could be conversion disorder”. (Seriously!!?)

4. THIRD VISIT TO NORTH SHORE HOSPITAL (3 of 4 visits)

  • Doctor referred Casey to A neurologist- and said if it gets worse to go back to North Shore Hospital.
  • Casey went to North Shore hospital, and enquired about her neurology appointment at the front desk – the kind lady informed Casey that she had an appointment, but it was not at North Shore Hospital but rather at Auckland Hospital- so she attended the appointment.

5. FIRST VISIT AUCKLAND HOSPITAL (date to be confirmed)

Casey was pretty keen to find out what was going on.

  • She was unable to walk properly and had to help herself walk most of the way (until being helped to the neurology area).
  • While waiting in Auckland Hospital, she started having an attack (which we believe is motor function related).
  • While having this attack a group of Doctors who were walking past, paused, turned around (and what Casey is guessing as the “head doctor”) and pointed to her saying “This is what you look for!” – SPECULATION which was belitting and made Casey feel like a test subject (THIS IS REALLY UNCOOL from this particular group of doctors).
  • Casey ended up being turned away and was told that she did not have an appointment – SHE WAS WAITING THERE BY HERSELF FOR 1-2 hours shaking uncontrollably- having one of her attacks & in EXTREME PAIN.

6. FOURTH VISIT TO NORTH SHORE HOSPITAL (4 of 4)

26/10/21 – Presented for her 3rd time at 2054 (10.54pm) and discharged on the 27th of October at 620AM.

Diagnosis – “History of presenting complaint” –

“Family had mentioned to staff that she possibly had tics as a child?”

(THIS IS COMPLETELY FALSE – no family member was present only Casey’s partner and he nor anyone else state or mention she had childhood tics).

CASEY HAS BEEN ROBBED OF A FAIR & ACCURATE CLINICAL ASSESSMENT!

Casey has never had tics as a child. Casey never had any sign of “TICS” prior to the vaccine.

Other note in history of presenting complaint states:

“Undiagnosed tourettes but Casey is adamant she had no symptoms until after the 29th of September” (Again, these notes are not accurate, Casey had her jab on the 25th and clearly stated she had symptoms 60 mins later).

***CASEY DID NOT HAVE UNDIAGNOSED TOURETTES!!!***

Casey was given a script for the following:

“Lorazepam” and “Risperidone”

CASEY DESERVES TREATMENT – SUPPORT, love and attention. She does not deserve to be told SHE HAS UNDERLYING TICS and other such nonsense.

This entire process has been a joke, and that fact that people on social think this is a joke, saddens and frustrates me.

Casey has been dismissed and overlooked by our health system. A HEALTH SYSTEM IN WHICH OUR MONEY PAYS FOR and she has not had support from our medical professionals.

The Medical Counsel should look into this.

– SHE WAS NOT ALLOWED A SUPPORT PERSON – her partner was TOLD TO GO HOME AT approximately 11pm (the night of her 4th visit to North Shore Hospital) and nurses told Casey’s partner – he would be allowed to be on the phone to support and help Casey understand what the doctor was saying.

Yousif Rassam (Registrar) – denied Casey the right to contact her partner – while he was present. He told Casey she was not allowed to contact her partner on the phone. This is unacceptable. Casey asked twice.

PLEASE CONTINUE READING – you are almost there…ALL EVIDENCE CAN BE PROVIDED.

POST THIS – Casey had a phone call from a GP who informed Casey, she had referred her for psychiatric help.

CASEY SPOKE WITH another GP who did not want to see Casey’s videos or meet her in person due to Covid-19. This GP referred Casey to psychiatric help and took her off the neurologist list (After her 3rd GP visit she is back on the neurologist list).

NO MEDICINE GIVEN.

CASEY URGENTLY NEEDS SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDS THIS SITUATION.

Casey’s symptoms have been worsening – so can someone ACTUALLY please help.

This is SIMPLY unacceptable.

NEW ZEALAND CAN WE PLEASE HELP CASEY HAVE HER VOICE HEARD.

Please note – there are many people like Casey in New Zealand and around the world.

THIS IS NOT ANTI-VAX – this is about someone who has had a severe reaction to the Pfizer vaccine and no one is talking about it or taking this seriously.

7. FINAL INFORMATION:

  • Since Casey first had her vaccine and visited her GP (and several hospital visits) – she has stated the following and this is still sadly taking place in her life (and much of her pain has been dismissed):
  • Stabbing pain, mostly in legs (9 out of 10 and 10 out of 10 pain – some days)
  • pain escalates when Casey walks.
  • extreme fatigue (mental and physical)
  • muscle cramps (tightness)
  • numbness in limbs
  • Casey’s limbs can actually lock up (SO cruel).
  • Joint pain (a lot of joint pain)
  • Pressure in her head (causes mind fog and a lot of pain)
  • Casey has never had anything like this in her life!
  • Full body spasms
  • Vocal tics – which make it hard for her to speak/talk (and this is repetitive)
  • Real and severe mind fog (to the point she is unable to speak or comprehend)
  • Blurred vision
  • Numbness in lips
  • Tingling sensations in feet and hands
  • Electric buzzing feeling throughout her body and it starts at the back of her head (she describes this as being in the back of her head/brain)
  • She suffers agitation and restlessness – ONGOING and Casey has said this is can be for constant periods of time, something she has never faced before
  • Shakes in hands and arms (and throughout the rest of her body)

This is real – just because someone is crying or in pain does not mean they are acting.

Hey everyone another update, with a new friend. Anthony Mo

We want to share our journey, and what we believe may be the right way to go.

If anyone is going through what we are or even anything strange as a result of an adverse reactions. Don’t be afraid to

reach out.

Here is the path we are now trying to go down.

We are looking to follow this for recognition and full diagnosis and cause. Keep these in mind for ways to look into your condition depending on your symptoms.

* GP – get a referral to IMAC

* Referral to a neourlgist

* Cardiologist

* Opthalmologist ( eye specialist)

* Rheumatologist

* Immunologist

The road really starts with a compassionate GP. It’s not going to be an easy journey. But people like Anthony and myself are here to find the right path. 

A recent interview with Casey is below.
