A Father Paralyzed By The COVID Vaccine Leaves The Hospital After 420 Days

A dad who said he was left paralysed from the COVID vaccine has been discharged from the hospital after nearly four months.

Anthony Shingler, 58, suffered extreme pains alongside pins and needles days after receiving his first dose of the AstraZeneca jab in March last year.

StokeonTrentLive said that he was taken to Royal Stokes University Hospital in Staffordshire, where he was put onto a ventilator before being transferred to Hayward Hospital last November.

The ex-security worker was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), an extremely rare and serious condition in which a person’s own immune system attacks the nerves.

Most people would have usually recovered from the condition within six months to a year, but according to the NHS, about one in five people are left with long-term problems such as being unable to walk without help.

Anthony now needs a wheelchair and walking frame while at home with his wife and two daughters and has said that he will never be the same after his nerves were left stripped and damaged.

Remembering his early days in the hospital, the grandad said he was told to make a phone call to his loved ones as he was being taken down to the critical care unit as they didn’t know whether he was going to make it or not.

He said that he spoke to his wife and two daughters and said goodbye and that it was extremely terrifying.

He said that he was on a ventilator for months recovering, but even though he was the one lying in a hospital bed paralysed, his family went through more than he did.

Anthony was able to breathe on his own and was taken off the ventilator last October, but could only move his head.

He said there was a buzzer to call the nurses and he had to headbutt it because he couldn’t use his hands and that messes with your head because your brain is telling you to get out of bed but that your body can’t do that and it was all extremely frustrating.

He said that when he was moved to Hayward to start his physio, there was one stage where he just lost it and broke down in tears, so they kept him in a different room all night.

His current carer, Nicola, visited Anthony twice a day while he was in hospital before he returned home on May 17.

This man might have already had a pre-existing condition that was waiting to trigger but if the vaccines had been tested more thoroughly these kinds of things might not be happening.

There have been numerous conditions transpiring since people have had the jab, some saying that they’ve never felt right since or that they’ve now got conditions that they never ever had before, and it’s not right now that should be concerning but what the vaccine might have done to us in the long term, that we won’t know for some time yet. So, if in a few years’ time you start losing the hair on your skin and only like coming out at night, you’ll know why!

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
