I got my first dose of Pfizer vaccine on Monday July 19 and since then I have not felt myself. I'm a 25 year old healthy male. I lift weights, cardio, eat really healthy. I had no business getting this vaccine except that this job required I have at least one dose before I showed up. I went and got it last minute which in hindsight was a huge mistake. I knew the risks of getting this shot but ignored them because I wanted this job, which turns out I didn't even like. So much so that I quit within 2 days. It's ok though my main job is intact. I'm taking time off from there.

Within five minutes of getting the shot I had a panic attack. Cold sweats, anxiety, claminess, dizziness. The pharmacist who gave me this terrible vaccine gave me fruit juice to drink which helped some. For days now I have been experiencing some slight chest discomfort on my left side just below the pec muscle, wasn't there before. I've been going about my business as per usual. Lifting, cardio has gone unimpeded. My performance is still as high as it was before vaccine. In the last few days though, so days 3-5, I've started to experience dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling unsteady on my feet if standing still.

I am filled with so much regret from taking this vaccine and I wish I stuck to my guns to never take it. Instead, I took it for a job I ended up not even liking. I am still processing my mistake and I feel better than I did a couple days ago but the symptoms still persist.

I wish this wasn't such a politicized vaccine and I wish they would stop pushing it so hard on people. It's really too bad that so many people are taking it under the pretense they'll be able to travel or go back to normal life.

I am steadfast now in my refusal of the second dose. If ever a job requires me to have it I will not work for them. If it's needed to travel I simply won't travel. If it's ever needed to go to the grocery store I'll go to a local farmer's market instead. If my main full-time job requires I have both doses I will quit and find someplace that doesn't require it. It's insane that jobs have the nerve to require it for employment. Utterly insane that young people like myself have to put their perfect bill of health in jeopardy like this. I'd rather catch covid then get the second dose of the vaccine. I'm so mad at myself for getting it.

I just hope that my symptoms (dizziness, minor chest discomfort) resolve over time and that there are no long term health consequences or permanent damages from this shot.

@lynner Hi Lynne, I was prescribed 40mg propranolol which is for anxiety but also to prevent migraines. I was told I could just take them as needed for anxiety so if I feel an attack coming I will take one but they make me very spaced out. What dosage are you on and are they working for you??

I am experiencing similar side effects from past two months. Have you recovered? How long did it take you?

You have posted a very odd link that reeks of conspiracy theories. I got out as soon as I could. We don’t need it on this forum.

Quoting you: "Please just use some critical thinking skills and you will realize"

...that other's just using some "critical thinking skills" won't always result in the same realizations as yours...

Yeah, thanks anyway, but people somehow never seem to appreciate their steering wheels being grabbed and turned in a different direction as they're trying to drive down the road, y'know.

The main road being traveled here is a quest for restored health. And it can be ok that we're taking a variety of routes trying to end up there.

The thing you're into may be better suited for a more politically motivated arena. Best wishes 😏

I have seen several posts on this forum about floater issues from vax. Unfortunately, I am one of those people that got a lot of floaters in both eyes after the vaccine. First and only Moderna vaccine on 3/19. Floaters showed up 2 months later and got worse at around 3 months. I am really struggling to cope with them. Eye doctor said that there is nothing he can do. They may fade away or my brain will start noticing them. And that may take months.  No retina detachment so nothing to do. From reading online about people's experiences with floaters (not from vaccines), they are usually permanent and treatments such as laser/surgery are fraught with risks and only for very severe cases. I am 42 and can't imagine living the rest of my life with this kind of vision. My vision was crystal clear prior to this.

Are there any success stories here from those who got floaters from the vaccine? How bad were they for you? Did they go away or reduce? How long did it take? Looking for hope.  Desperately looking for hope.

@vincent I am in the same boat! Lots of floaters and finding hard to cope/manage and of course worried that this will be my vision forever. I am 42. There may really be not treatment unless you opt for surgery or laser which I read are very risky. How long have you had them?  How bad are they? Have noticed any reduction/fading?

@nursie my daughter was 29 and received the covid vaccine. She’s never had any health problems and all of a sudden after getting the vaccine she got a detached retina and had to have eye surgery. She also had appendicitis before that having yo have surgery. I’m concerned the spike protein from the vaccine is causing chaos in her body. They need to stop promoting this vaccine as safe!

@rbhubbard hi there, I came across your comment. I received my moderna vaccine on July 18th and a few days ago I have started to feel nausea and vertigo every day since. Did your symptoms get better and if so, did you do anything that helped? I am starting to feel worried myself this won’t go away. Thank you for your reply.

@mm824 @paige1123 I know i'm very late to this particular party but want to add my cents in case it helps anyone else.

On June 1st I sustained a concussion that left me feeling dizzy with a headache for two weeks before I started seeing any improvement. On the 7th June I finally managed to get an appointment with a locum to get checked out - she just flipped  through my hair and said 'well you don't have a lump you're fine why are you here?' (1) no sh*t i don't have a lump after a week 2) don't mind me i'm just holding onto the walls because I like the paint). I had my first jab booked for the following day and she said there was no reason not to get it. My inner alarm bell called BS, so I cancelled it and rebooked for the 23rd.

By the 20th I was feeling basically back to normal just still feeling tired and a bit weird if i looked at screens too long. Got my jab on the 23rd. Moderna. Instant pain shot down my arm but otherwise i felt more or less ok. My heart was racing a bit while I was in the waiting room but since covid i've developed a lot of anxiety about being around people so I was sat there mentally balancing 'reaction?' with 'anxiety?' and went with anxiety.

Felt a bit tired after and couldn't use my arm for 2 days and started feeling a little run down - tired and waking up with a stuffy nose. Had a funeral to go to on the 26th and felt absolutely fine. Took a rapid test beforehand to protect others and it was negative. Started feeling a bit weird - like i'd been looking at screens - towards the end of the day and had a helluva migraine in the car home. I put it down to intensive peopleing cos I've been REALLY isolated since the pandemic started.

The next day I couldn't get out of bed I felt so bad - pounding headache nausea and dizziness - but when I say dizziness I don't mean like when you spin round and then you stop but the world keeps going - i felt like I was on a boat in a rough sea - looking around made me feel like I was about to fall. Felt like being concussed all over again. After a week I called the doctor (got my actual doctor for once not a locum) and he said he was pretty sure it was a bad reaction to the jab but because of my head injury and prior history of vitamin deficiencies he's sending me for a complete blood test and an MRI. I'm still waiting for those results. He also prescribed me Cinnarazine which i have to say has been a lifesaver. I still felt pretty awful but by the 12th I was able to be up and about a bit. It's the 25th now and i'm still on the pills. I can get by with out them now but still feel swimmy-in-the-head enough to find it easier with them. Not totally back to normal but about 80-85% The only downside of the pills is that they make me a bit drowsy but at least i'm able to do basic daily things like work in the garden and cook and clean and light exercise which I was absolutely unable to do before.

My personal theory is that I wasn't fully healed from my concussion and the inflammatory response to the jab caused a second one, as the path to feeling better has almost exactly mirrored my concussion but has lasted longer. Just waiting to see if science backs up my instincts. I'm not the sort of person who sits around waiting for things to resolve themselves as 9/10 i've found that doesn't work so I was educating myself on concussion rehabilitation exercises and there's a great concussion rehab therapist on youtube I found this week who firstly said don't be scared of the dizzies if you feel it when you do something it's a sign you need to do that thing more so your brain learns how to adjust - the longer you stay in bed and avoid movement the longer your recovery will be and also to work on relaxing your neck because part of the problem can be tangled up in there.

As soon as i forced myself out of bed and started doing the exercises I noticed the most improvement.

Not saying this will work for everyone as you all have different backgrounds but it's helped me so much in recent days. But also like a lot of you i'm really scared about getting my second jab and am going to see how long I can put it off for because I've already been written off for 2 months this year with the concussion then the jab I really can't afford or bear to spend another month like this in the immediate future. Will update if anything useful is found on the tests.

In summary: I'm a month in, still not right, cinnarizine and exercise helps a lot.

I know several people who have had old injuries flare up as a result of these jabs: ankles broken 20 years ago swelling up, knees dislocated in the past too painful to walk on for several weeks. Perhaps looking into your own past injuries or conditions may help you find answers or at least think of ways to help yourselves get up and about. I'd be really interested if any of you are/have had concussions in the past too!

Sorry for the super long post but i felt background info was useful for context.

@ladyd Hello Lady D, I haven't been prescribed what you were given for migraine, a headache nurse wants me to try a epilepsy medication called topiramate on a low dose. But I am having eye problems so am abit reluctant to give this a go.
