Cody’s case is the eighth in the Cause and Effect series.
Cody Flint was interviewed by DH and JWD in October and November 2021, who both concur on the details below. Cody had previously filled out an intake form with the details of his history and clinical course following the vaccine and provided Primary Care Physician (PCP) records dating back over a decade and records from specialists attended post vaccination.
Past Medical History
Cody had no previous medical issues. He had been an agricultural pilot for over a decade and has needed annual recertification in order to fly. His most recent physical was 10 days before vaccination. He was on no treatment prior to the vaccination and had no prior conditions. He was and remains pro-vaccine. He had all childhood vaccinations as have his two children.
Cody and his wife had the Pfizer vaccination on the same day, February 1 2021. He was vaccinated in order to minimize risks at work. His wife had no problems. He had immediate problems and did not take a second shot.
Cody developed a headache about 30 minutes after vaccination, while at lunch. Driving home from lunch, his wife remarked that his driving was erratic.
“It was like everything I was seeing was a second delayed, I’d turn my head and I felt like I was drunk, what I was seeing wasn’t keeping up with my eyes”.
Two days later when he was due to fly again, he noticed his vision was different – there were problems with depth perception, tunnel vision and difficulties in making out the horizon. These became dramatically worse when he turned the plane after several hours of flying. His ears seemed to pop and he lost consciousness or close to and seems to have been lucky to get back to base alive. He was pulled out of his plane by staff on the ground.
He called to see his family doctor who confirmed he had vertigo but diagnosed panic attacks and prescribed meclizine for vertigo and Xanax for panic, without attempting to pick out the cause. Neither of these medicines helped.
Cody took his problems to the Ear and Balance Institute in Covington, where he saw Dr. Soileau and Dr. Gianoli. There he had MRI and CT scans, hearing and balance tests, as well as checks on his spinal cord pressure.
He was told he had paralymphatic fistulas, tinnitus, Eustachian Tube dysfunction, and elevated intracranial pressure. His doctors diagnosed the problem as caused by the Covid vaccine. The only other option was physical trauma of which there had been none.
His doctors advised him not to have the second shot
A further MRI was done a month later to see if it shed light on what had happened and whether there were any difficulties apart from his inner ear problems but there were no further findings.
Cody was advised that he would need an operation on each ear to repair the damage. He had both of these done.
His spinal pressure remained elevated. He had several lumbar punctures to relieve this, which led to painful leaks afterwards. He took Diamox for the pressure, which may have helped reduce the pressure slowly but also caused pins and needles and nausea. He felt much better when he was able to stop it.
His vision and hearing remain a problem. He still has horizon issues and there is a separation between sensing and perceiving. These problems can dramatically worsen from time to time without any trigger but can be made worse by fatigue or stress.
He has marked tinnitus.
He still can get extreme spells of dizziness and when he does he is also disoriented and confused.
He remains otherwise physically strong.
His clinical picture is quite different to that of many others.
Cody’s Family Doctor did not want to engage with the issue of what had caused his initial problems. A panic attack is a most unlikely diagnosis for a fit young man, with no prior history of anxiety.
However, he seems to have had a more enlightened response from the Ear and Balance Institute who have been willing to state the obvious that his problems stemmed from the vaccine.
Cody has demonstrated MRI lesions showing inner ear problems.
He had a lengthy period of continuous elevation in his Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) pressure.
The only reasonable diagnosis in Cody’s case appears to be one of Post Vaccine Neurological Syndrome. His is one of the most clear-cut vaccine induced injuries imaginable. It is difficult to see how anyone could argue against this link – other than arguing for some million to one against freak event.
If he had mentioned his headache at the vaccine center, chances are it would have been passed off as evidence the vaccine was working.
There is no hint that his has been an auto-immune problem. Many people have had central and peripheral nervous system difficulties like his without any elevation of inflammatory markers, or indeed any evidence of the virus getting into the brain.
In Cody’s case, there appears to have been an elevation of intracranial pressure leading to his problems. This elevation has taken months to damp down and his problems in this area continue.
It is not clear what the outcome is likely to be. Operations have stabilized the initial problems, but he has been left with a skills deficit that mean he may never be able to work again at a job that requires more than average levels of co-ordination, dexterity and optimal sensory function
This poses serious problems for him and his family moving forward.
To be with Cody is to feel you are in the presence of a very decent, straightforward, hard-working and dedicated family man. This comes over on listening to his presentation at the November 2 Capitol Hill meeting, which can be seen HERE.
