João Vitor Costa Lima, 13 year old. Took the 1st dose of Pfizer on 11/30/2021.
3 days later he reported to his mother that he was feeling unwell. He felt heart palpitations, shortness of breath and had lot of pain.
Few days went by, until João mother finally linked the facts to the vaccine, and sought medical help. A decision that saved her son’s life!
Tests were performed, such as a electrocardiogram, Holter and a portable electrocardiogram for 24 hours. The purpose of this test is to identify heart rhythm disturbances.
His diagnosis was Pericarditis. Pericarditis is inflammation of the membrane that covers the heart. The tests indicated that he had also suffered a small heart attack, but that it had not caused any damage to the myocardium.
João had to take medication for 6 months, and not do any physical activities.
He will always need medical follow-ups because of pericarditis now for the rest of his life.
