Man who was ‘paralyzed by Covid jab’ comes home from hospital after 420 days

A man who claims he was paralyzed has returned home from the hospital after 420 days. Anthony Schingler, a former security worker and father of two children, said he suffered a rare side effect after receiving the first AstraZeneca vaccine last year.

When Anthony came down with severe pain and pins and needles in March 2021, he was taken to the hospital. This came just a few days after I got the first injection.

He was left on a ventilator for months at the Royal Stoke University Hospital before being transferred to Haywood Hospital in Stoke, near his home, in November. It has been a long and painful recovery for the 58-year-old father, who is finally back home with his wife Nicola and their two daughters.

Grandfather Anthony, who said he had no health problems before being vaccinated, said he would “never be the same”. Now he has a wheelchair and a frame to walk so he can move around, Report StokeonTrentLive,

He said, “I was told to call my loved ones as I was taken to critical care because they didn’t know if I would be able to do it or not. I talked to my wife and two daughters and said ‘Goodbye’ Said. That was scary.

“I was then on a ventilator for months to recover. Even though I lay in a paralyzed hospital bed, I suffered more than my family did.”

Anthony was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), a serious condition that affects the nerves. The condition causes the body’s immune system to damage nerve cells, leading to muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis, following infection and, in rare cases, vaccination.

Anthony was taken off the ventilator in October and managed to breathe on his own, but says he still can’t move his body.

He said: “I could only shake my head. The buzzer was ringing to call the nurses and I had to cut off my head because I couldn’t use my hands. It messes with your head because your mind is telling you to get out of bed but your body can’t. This is really disappointing.

“When I was taken to Haywood I started the physio. There was a phase where I lost it and broke down in tears. They kept me in a separate room all night.”

Anthony said: “Before this happened, I used to classify myself as a mentally strong person. Nothing could phase me out, but it was something else – it has had an effect on my mental health.

“I can’t go to work, drive, or dress myself. My hands are so sore I can’t hold anything. I use a wheelchair and I have a frame to walk on.” But I have to bend. I can’t stand on my own. I can walk only 20 meters with a frame.

“I don’t wish it on my worst enemy, it’s really bad. I didn’t like any of it, but I’m lucky I’m alive.”

Anthony now regrets government advice to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

He said: “It’s life changing, but I didn’t do anything that caused it. We did what the government told us to do. I regret getting the vaccine. If I knew there was a possibility of getting it.” So I don’t go anywhere near it.

“My nerves are stripped and damaged. This is the beginning and it will be a long haul. I will never be the same Anthony again. ,

While he was in the hospital, Nicola, who is now his caregiver, visited him twice a day. He previously spoke with StokeonTrentLive when Anthony was fighting for his life.

But when Nicola, 49, returned home on May 17, she was overjoyed. She said: “We’re unlucky because he got infected, but lucky because he’s alive. It’s great to have him back home.

“Now we have to face our daily lives to see how it affects Tony. I’m his caregiver and we’ve got the added stress of having to sort out benefits because we didn’t claim them before. It’s so stressful. Income is lost and even gains are not enough.

“Tony will push as much as he can and keep going. The doctor told us we’ll have to wait and see what nature gives him back. I agree it was the vaccine, he was fine as long as he had There was no. They couldn’t find any other triggers.”

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is monitoring all possible side-effects including Guillain-Barré syndrome.

In an online post about GBS in 2020, www.nhs.uk said: “In the past, vaccination (particularly the flu vaccines used in the US during the 1976 swine flu outbreak) has been shown to be associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome. But research has found that the chances of developing the condition after vaccination are very low.

“For example, a study into the vaccines used during the 2009 swine flu outbreak found that for every million people who were vaccinated, there were less than 2 additional cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome. Further evidence suggests that You are far more likely to get Guillain-Barré syndrome from a flu-like infection, than a vaccine designed to prevent infection like the flu jab.”
