Ask The Nurses Podcast Amanda Damian event director of Defeat the Mandates board member of react19, Moderna injured
Amanda Damian is a single mom to her 9 year old son, Max. She willingly stepped up to get her Covid jab in early March 2021.
Immediately after receiving her first shot of Moderna, she got numbness and tingling in her throat. That progressed to severe tachycardia, back pain, shortness of breath and syncopic episodes landing her in the ER. That first ER visit was met with lack of knowledge on how to treat the symptoms along with being sent home with a referral to cardiology. She returned to the ER more 5 times after that event for continuous syncopic episodes, rash and cardiac issues. The symptoms progressed and she woke up weeks later with bilateral limb paralysis and was hospitalized for a week. Many tests were done including MRI's, CT scans, bloodwork and Lumbar Puncture which showed abnormalities. The neurologist that she saw in the hospital refused to connect these symptoms with the vaccine and later wrote in her chart, "bilateral weakness due to lack of effort". She was discharged to have surgery at a different hospital to have a medical device removed so that further MRI testing could be performed. She has sent her blood to researchers across the country to try and help figure out what is happening in her body since no one in the medical doctor community has been able to figure it out. This has been met with much frustration from her and her team of doctors.
Since then, mobility has slowly returned but it is very inconsistent. Some days her legs can support her, other days they cannot. She has been diagnosed with seizures, Guillian Barre Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, and vasculitis.
Amanda was the event director for the Defeat the Mandates DC, as well as Defeat the Mandates LA. She is also on the board for React19. She has currently moved across the country temporarily to undergo treatment with an amazing doctor in Portland, OR. She has been in treatment for 2 months and is making progress. Amanda is on the leading forefront of research for the vaccine injured and is committed to doing whatever it takes to successfully find treatment options. She has an incredible team of committed doctors who treat her daily with a multitude of therapies--weekly testing, IR Sauna, IV nutrition though Picc line, IV Ozone and HBOT treatments. Her team of doctors believe in the success of her treatments and she is looking forward to the day her body is healed from this horrific nightmare.
