Regrets

I'm going to try to keep this as short as possible. I first started Aimovig this past Nov. The first shot was ok. I suffered from extreme fatigue for about a week and then gradually started to get bouts of vertigo/dizziness. All of which went away eventually. I took the second shot with the same results except with a worsening with the vertigo. I skipped a month of the shot to voice my concerns to my doctors. I ended up taking the shot again in February when things went south. About a week after the shot I started to develop cardiac issues that sent me to the ER multiple times. I have had multiple EKG and even heart monitors all showing normal results. My vertigo is now 24/7 and has been going on for almost 2 months. I am now having breathing/swallowing difficulties. I will soon be going in for an MRI and a balance test. I can only hope at this point that all of this will go away when the shot clears out. I was wondering if anyone has had experienced similar issues and how long they lasted?
