Medical student says she was treated ‘like animal’ after ‘nightmare’ jab effects

A medical student claims she has been treated like a "zoo animal" by hospital staff while enduring the "scariest experience" of her life after having the Covid vaccine.

Arooj Imtiaz Lughmani, 28, says her "nightmare" began just 10 minutes after she was given the Pfizer jab at Waterford University Hospital in Ireland.

She says she suffered a locked jaw, nausea, seizures and lost the ability to walk and speak in what she believes was an extreme reaction to the coronavirus vaccine on September 10.

A few hours after the dose, she says she even stopped breathing and that her dad and sister, both of whom are doctors, had to perform life-saving CPR.

Arooj, who is from Ireland but studying in Bulgaria, has been unimpressed with the treatment she has received in hospital.

She claims she was sent home too hastily more than once and that she has been made to feel like she is imagining the complications.

Now, while she is not an anti-vaxxer, she is speaking out to warn others of the possible extreme side effects.

She said: "I got an appointment to have my vaccine in Ireland where I’m originally from and I decided to go get it as soon as I could, to do my part for the community.

"I woke up very happy and I put on my makeup, which is a rare occurrence since the pandemic.

"I was greeted by amazing staff who asked me a few questions about whether I had travelled, If I suffered from heart problems, if I was pregnant or if I’m allergic to any medicine. I wasn’t and I was given the green light."

She says she started to feel a "little light headed" while she was sitting in the post-jab waiting room.

"To be on the safe side I asked for help immediately," she said. "What happened in the next few hours was the scariest experience of my life.

"My arm that was inoculated began to spasm – it got stiff and I couldn’t feel it. Then I kept going in and out of consciousness."

Arooj, who has several doctors in her family, says she got an ambulance to the hospital where staff allegedly sent her home after giving her a CT scan.

She claims she was sent away twice from the hospital before she was admitted and claims that some of employees believe she is mentally unstable.

Speaking about the times she has been allowed to go home, she added: "I came in after my first dose from the vax centre in an ambulance after they discharged me. A severe episode happened where I stopped breathing that night.

"My father gave me CPR – he’s a doctor – and my sister, also a doctor, rushed to get an ambulance that took over half an hour – we live 10 minutes away from the hospital.

"They discharged me again in the morning and the next evening the same symptoms started and ever since then I have been here in Waterford University Hospital."

Arooj has since shared her painful ordeal with her growing number of Instagram followers to make others aware of the rare side effects.

"Please bear in mind that I’m not against the vaccine even after all that is happening to me," she wrote on her first post.

In the same post she referenced how she was left "in pain panting like a fish" after her neurologist allegedly conducted her consultation while she was having a seizure and diagnosed her to have a disability.

She has told how that she was diagnosed before he could rule out any other findings and that he had stopped all symptomatic relief medication.

"A form of torture is what that was," she commented.

She also claims that in the early stages of her hospital stay, she was "left in the hands of interns" who reportedly ridiculed her until she told them that she was a medical student.

"I have been living alone since I was 15, an incredibly independent person who’s now dependent to even go to the bathroom."

Waterford University Hospital were contacted for comment but declined and said they do not comment on individual patient cases.
