@sally Yes. I can say that after 4 weeks the dizziness has subsided about 50%. Still get an occasional headache but over all better.

@sally it took 8 days before I started feeling better. I took vit-c. Vit -d . And drank diet Coke to alleviate the headache and nausea... still a little neck pain. But the vit - c was a game changer 500mg twice a day. Kicked things in gear ...feeling pretty normal now.. until my next shot on 4-1.. which I'm not looking forward to.. but I'm a pharmacy tech. I have to get vaccinated..

@maxe1990 basically that I had vertigo and gave me meclizine which honestly made me feel even worse. They did an EKG, checked blood pressure and blood sugar, all normal.  They pushed back on the idea it could be the vaccine at all

Updated- 

I fainted Sunday morning 3/14 and Saturday 3/13 night again. 
I feel fine through the day now. The cardiologist ordered to get a heart monitor put on to record. I still don’t know what wrong and haven’t had any answers. I haven’t been to work since the first episode of 3/4. 
I’m currently taking protandium, iron and vitamin-c. 

Anyone else experiencing this? What have drs told y’all? What did y’all do or take?

At least my ENT and Cardiologist seemed to think the dizziness/ rocking feeling and the visual disturbance (was not true vertigo but the wall and shades seemed to be moving) could very likely be as a result of the vaccine.  They agreed vaccine so new that no one really knows for sure.  My internal med Dr didn’t think so; but he was likely just going by published expected side effects.

Update: 19 days since 1st Pfizer. No improvement in brain fog or dizziness. Finally saw my dr this morning. Running lots of basic tests to rule things out. She advised against getting the second dose, or at the very least delaying it. She is very open to the possibility that what I'm experiencing is a reaction to the vaccine. Anyway, I'll continue to update. I hope everyone else does as well.

Thank you for writing! I am hoping your symptoms are temporary and will go away...The question is when?

Interesting article on how COVID-19 is affecting "long-haulers," who sometimes experience vestibular-like symptoms.

Just an update on me. I am almost 9 weeks from my first dose, 6 weeks from the second, and 5 weeks out from the sudden-onset vertigo.

Just in the past week, I’ve improved a lot. I still get a headache if I try to read anything, especially on a screen. I’m not sure when that will resolve. But I’ve had a few days where I have felt normal (as long as I avoid screens), which was great. And at the very least I am fully functional, and running every day and performing my daily tasks.

Something interesting I have noticed is that if I am feeling dizzy and I take ibuprofen, it resolves the dizziness in about 30 minutes. This makes me think it’s related to something inflammatory. I did two prednisone tapers, and still had dizziness during those, but that was weeks ago. So maybe the inflammation has reduced enough that it can be controlled by ibuprofen? I have no idea…

@gisellegolden I have not. I am waiting to see if my vertigo goes away first and to see how others who choose to get their 2nd shot do. I feel the degree of protection I have from the 1st shot( read the new Israeli studies) is enough to buy me some time to gather more info before I may an uninformed decision.

@atp223 very interesting info-thanks for sharing! That has always been my hypothesis that inflammation is the cause of the vertigo.

 

Vestibular neuritis is a condition that causes vertigo and dizziness. It results from inflammationof your vestibular nerve, a nerve in the ear that sends information to your brain about balance. When it's inflamed, this information isn't properly communicated, making you feel disoriented.
