Have the symptoms and dizziness abated?

Would you believe, my daughter phoned today to say she just got her first vaccine but couldn't stop to talk because she had a 30 mile drive to a meeting. Oh to be young again! 😊

Yes, those were the days! I have 4 children and when they were small people thought it funny that I carried a calendar to keep track of what to do next. I look back on those calendars now and wonder how I managed to do so much. I'm grateful that I'm now retired and only need to take care of myself these days with the limited abilities I have dealing these crazy side effects. My prayers for those that are caring for children and/or working while being affected! 

It's good to hear you got to enjoy getting out and about! It's a battle to climb out of bed and even off the couch when you're feeling so bad, but I've found I'm recovering better when I feel good enough to try being more active.

Best wishes for your daughter and all here!

@thenystagmus So pleased for you Sassafras, that must be a load off your mind and a step closer to finding the answers you need.😊

Well, my insurance agent is optimistic I won't get saddled with the cost of my ENT consult yesterday -- so I hope he's right! Didn't hear back yet ...there's a lot of waiting and uncertainty involved in so many aspects of this. Do you suppose that's why they call us The Patient?? 😅

@thenystagmus Possibly lol. Aristotle once said "patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet" or something like that.

Curious to hear what people’s headaches feel like and where they are occurring? Mine are so slight that they are barely noticeable but I can definitely tell they are there. Like a dull ache in the back of my head. Also have some neck and jaw stiffness. Like feeling like I need to crack them constantly. The dull headache sometimes has a minor sharp pain to it but really only like a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. This accompanies the ear and sinus pressure. Are other people experiencing headaches like this?

@isismadec Thank you. It was a nice change from being home and feeling too ill to go out. I don't understand how two days can be so different. The day before I wouldn't have dared venture out with the way I felt. I too try to carry on the best I can when I feel unwell, I try to accept it for what it is now and just hope it will pass soon.

@tabby Yes, I can see that!

Ok, I adapted that last one from a joke my son made up when he was small and in the midst of his many surgeries and medical appointments. We were pulling into yet another medical building parking lot when he said, "Look over there, the sign says, More Patient Parking!" Then he slyly explained, "That lot is for The More Patient." 😏         Yeah, we blame my dad for the BFB* syndrome that runs in our family            (* Broken Funny Bone). It's served to cushion the impact of my son's experiences. Sometimes it's just better to laugh when you feel like crying...

@lukenick Hi, my headaches usually occur on the top right side of my head, typical of a migraine. This is the headache I usually get with my migraines 3 to 4 times a year but they have been more frequent since the jab. Sometimes I get them on the top of my head like a pressure feeling. I also get them at the back of my head and neck. My ears sometimes feel full and whooshy, achy, sometimes they pop like when you get off an aeroplane. My hearing is sensitive and I cannot stand loud noises. In other words I'm a wreck but I have been feeling good today.

@tabby

yes that is similar to what I have noticed! More pressure than pain it seems for me. Like the feeling of pounding in the head

@thenystagmus On bless, children's innocence is ineffable, that's so funny. It brought to mind something my daughter said when she was a little girl. We were out for the day in the car and they were building a prison in the area we usually visited, she didn't have a clue what it was and she said " oh that building is coming along nice now isn't it" It was so funny at the time and to this day whenever we pass by it comes to mind.

@lukenick Yes, weird headaches seem to be common with some people following the jab.

Just out of interest, my hubby was speaking to a mate of his today whose wife was ill following her first jab with lots of side effects but after her second jab she was fine, no problems.

@lukenick

Hi, My "headaches" are in the low back of my head and my temples, and my eyes and my forehead and cheekbone sinuses ache dully. My sinuses feel swollen, but without any congestion. Sometimes I can feel pressure in areas of them squeezing past blocked areas with a small squeak or a slight pop. My right ear has kind of an empty feel or a slight pressure feeling. Hard to describe, really... The dull pain makes me hold my jaw tight, wanting to clench my teeth together, but I purposely try to keep relaxing it instead. I've though my neck might be stiff from moving my head less to reduce the tilt-o-whirling vertigo/dizziness business.

On another topic... I've been aware of having slowly, slightly diminishing hearing for years now and had an audiology test yesterday. I was told I have a less usual, interesting result. They call it Cookie Bite, because I have mid-range loss that makes a dip in the middle of the graphing, like someone took a bite out of it. They said it usually indicates congenital loss, which I've not thought I've had. The internet says congenital, hereditary or a type of vestibular tumor. My dad ended up with hearing aids, so if I get to choose my Dx, I'll definitely take hereditary!
