@liat

Glad to hear that it almost went away!  
It will be useful for all of us, if other members who previously shared, would give us an update.

@francis  I also am declining the vaccine at this time because of what I'm reading here.  I have Meniere's Disease so have had past issues of severe dizziness and vertigo, although I have not had them in a number of years.  I am terrified that if I have the vaccine I will suffer the terrible side effects.  I'm just not willing to risk that.  Maybe there will be a different vaccine in the future that I will feel OK about getting.  Meanwhile, I will continue to isolate as I've been doing.  I'm very depressed about that because I saw the vaccine as my salvation, finally being able to have my life back, but not to be. 🙁

Here is an update.  Yesterday was my first full day without any vertigo or dizziness. Headache and pressure in the back of my head seems to have subsided as well!  So glad!  Today I was scheduled to have my second shot of Moderna but I chose to reschedule for the 22nd of March. Gives me a couple of weeks to do more research and decide if I’m going to chance another dose of the vaccine. I’m also talking to a doctor to report what’s happened

@rajagopal I am coming up on 2 weeks tomorrow from my ER visit from my vertigo episode and am sooo much better. Dizziness is gone for the most part. I do have lingering tinnitus and it got really bad after going to a place with loud music over the weekend, but has improved over the last 24 hours.

I am so glad that I found this forum. I have not had a COVID-19 vaccine yet, but found this forum through a search because I had a similar experience to those being described on this forum after a flu vaccine about six years ago. I have not had a vaccine since then. It took me about six months for the dizziness/vertigo to go away completely without reoccurring.

Have any of you reported your symptoms either to the vaccine maker, CDC or state health departments? At the time I filed a report with the vaccine maker. If enough people report these reactions then maybe the information would get out to the broader medical community. I see that dizziness was one of the more common adverse reactions reported with COVID-19 so far, but did not see where it specified if that was temporary immediately after receiving a dose or covered these longer term experiences as well.

Needless to say reading your experiences puts me from already moderately hesitant to severely hesitant.

Hello everyone. I developed some vertigo and dizziness about two weeks after my second dose of Moderna. It was persistent and throughout the day. Over the next month, it has subsided and improved. Still not gone 100%, but getting there- I'm functional and able to work, it bothers me very little at this point. I went to an ENT and was diagnosed with vestibular neuronitis. Classically, it's caused by a virus and is benign/self-limiting for the most-part. Some of you sound like you have BPPV or other causes for dizziness. But some of you describe symptoms similar to mine. I was wondering if anyone has been sick recently (besides vaccine side effects). Like if they had a sore throat or anything? I did happen to have a sore throat for 1-2 days prior to the onset of the dizziness, and I thought it was likely I had something viral and that is what triggered the vestibular neuronitis instead of the vaccine. However, after reading a lot of posts about people getting dizzy after the vaccine or a week or so after the vaccine, I'm starting to wonder if the vaccine triggered it.

My wife who is a nurse and a friend who is a physician both didn't believe that my sudden acute vertigo could be due to the first dose of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine we received last Tuesday, as the symptoms started 4 days afterward.  The dizziness, which started Saturday and became pretty severe on Sunday has abatated quite a bit today, Monday.  I'm hoping that trend continues, and that the second shot scheduled for the end of this month doesn't produce the same or worse side-effects.  With the vertigo I also experienced heavy fatigue, particularly on Sunday when the dizziness was the worst.  I'm not sure whether the tiredness was a separate symptom or a byproduct of the disequilibrium, but the whole experience has been scary for all of us.  I'm just glad I found this discussion if only to confirm my suspicions and allay some of the fear that these symptoms were caused by something worse than an adverse reaction to a vaccine.

@kurt300 I measured my blood pressure.  It's usually fairly normal (130/68 or so), but it was a bit higher than my usual at 140/78.  I have a blood pressure cuff at home.  I was stressed by the dizziness, so not sure which came first: the chicken or the egg.

Had 1st vaccine March 4th, no symptoms other than mild fatigue for 2 days. 3rd day woke up w the worst vertigo ever, did Eply maneuver seemed to worsen it. Today is the end of day 4 and I’m miserable. Going to an ENT March 10, I’m not sure any doctor understands this enough to properly treat it. Partner is a neurologist and he things my staying in bed isn’t the answer that I should do vestibular exercises, anyone tried that? My vertigo is so horrible I can hardly type this now. I have slight tinnitus that seems to get worse as my vertigo does. 

I registered w the CDC V-Safe today, mentioned severe vertigo, no one has called or texted me yet. Everyone should register there so we can help. I would have waited on the vaccine had I realized this is very common. I’ve had BPV on rare occasions for 30 years.

New member here.. I really appreciate being able to see everyone's posts..been trying to log on with vsafe to tell of my experience with my first Moderna shot. But have had no luck. After the first couple of hours I had confusion.. then came the dizziness. Nausea. Light headed. I had to work after the shot.. that was interesting.. its been 5 days since my shot and still having  effects...the headaches have started and I stare out into space.. I guess brain fog. What I have found this evening is taking vitamin c 500mg has really made me feel alot better.. so. I have alot of allergies to foods. Grass . Trees. Animals. So I was wary about doing this. But I work in a pharmacy.  So I had to take the risk.. worried about the second shot. This time I'm taking 4 days off.. Thank you for listening..

@lisa-monroe. I wanted to answer you because I had the exact same thing happen to me.  I had a flu shot a few years ago and 2 weeks after the room was spinning.  I had to give up my job at the time.  It took months and months to get to the point where I could say I felt like I could manage it. I had to search to find Doctors who actually believe there was a direct connection between that flu shot and my dizziness . I was told there is chance of that happening again as it is how my body reacts to whatever was in that vaccine.   Long story short, if it happened once it can happen again was what I was told from this same Dr.

@raydon4

I am diagnosed with vestibular migraines. After my first Pfizer dose it took almost 2 weeks for horrible aches to effect every cell in my body. Slight vertigo started which I've learned to live with. I just had my second dose March 6th, starting March 7th I began to have the worst vertigo and migraines I have ever experienced. It is scaring the heck out of me and I feel like my head will explode and that I will pass out from the vertigo. I wish I never had the vaccine.
