@dizzydame @rockingonaboat I have the exact same sensations going on as well. Doctor was insistent on diagnosing me with BPPV and I kept telling them that wasn't what I was experiencing. I'm glad to finally see others are experiencing what I believe I am experiencing. I've seen a lot so far on individuals with dizzy spells and symptoms similar to BPPV, so finding others who believe they have PPPD like myself is unfortunate but also a relief for me. I did a lot of research on PPPD, and have also done a decent amount on Meinere's Disease as well. Are you also experiencing fatigue, tinnitus and maybe hearing loss in one ear? Curious what other symptoms you have and if more of our align.

During the process of self-diagnosis I have eliminated caffeine, reduced my alcohol intake (let's be real, I need a drink some nights to survive this symptom reality we are living) and significantly reduced my salt intake as well. I have found that, while I'm not 100% by any means, this diet helps to somewhat minimize my symptoms a bit. Of course everyone is different.

Im (M40) I've always been healthy, never had any history of dizziness, migraines or anything like that.

I got 1st shot of Pfizer 14 days ago. The effects started exactly 24 hours later. They started with several such as headache, joint pain, dizziness, abdominal pain, etc...

For the first few days I could barely look at the PC screen and I almost threw up, my vision was spinning, the dizziness was strong, when I lay down to sleep the bed felt like it was spinning.

Another strange thing I witnessed was a feeling of "fire" on my face, arms, and legs, feet and hands every exactly 24 hours on time! And when I go to sleep. These sensations of fire burning the skin are getting smaller and soft every day after day but still present.

What remained after 2 weeks were dizziness and a feeling of imbalance. The dizziness was more intense in the beginning and is now less but still present. I also have episodes of chills when I go to sleep, it lasts about 5 minutes and then it goes away.

I respect whoever has the decision to take the 2nd dose (it's an individual decision), but I'm definitely not crazy about going out there and get this poison again.

Hi all!

I received two messages from users asking how I was doing and if treatment has worked. Unfortunately I cannot send private messages back because I haven't posted enough or something like that. 

 

Anywho-I wanted to give a quick update!

Last time I posted, I was taking Ivermectin, Prednisone, and Fluvoxamine to treat my vaccine issues. Since then, I have definitely improved. I still have issues with brain fog, slight head pressure, confusion at times. I am taking B-12, Iron with Vitamin C, Antihistamines, NAC, Vitamin B, and a focus stimulant I got from Amazon every day. I even started to take Ashwaghanda to lessen the anxiety and or stress.

 

I finished my treatment with the actual medication about 3 weeks ago I believe. I was told to still take Ivermectin once/twice a week. I take 12MG when I do. I am definitely better when I am outside, going to stores is easier. I went on a weekend trip and did great, got brain fog on the drive back, but improved nonetheless as compared to before. My current struggles are not being able to stay in my apartment. My symptoms tend to flare up when I am at my apartment. I get brain fog, confusion, and my eyes get all weird where everything is too overwhelming for me. It's more so an issue of not being able to focus. Hoping that fixes itself soon as time goes on. Hope this helps.

@nawpan I am saying the MRNA vaccines are experimental and have not been tested on humans before.  And they are nothing like the conventional vaccines.  They modify your RNA which means they are messing with your genetic makeup.  As far as the virus that is a different story.  The latest data shows it came from a lab in Wuhan that was a Gain of Function lab that was banned in the US.  If it got out by accident or on purpose is beyond my knowledge.  I am just some guy interested in their own health and of my family.  

Gosh you do talk some rubbish don't you, the reason people - including myself have found this page on google is mostly because we have vestibular disorders in the first place.. Looking to see what side effects on their vertigo these vaccines have potentially had. Not some anti vax nonsense.. "They modify your RNA which means they are messing with your genetic makeup" - This just shows you don't really have a clue how messenger RNA vaccines work!

For what its worth I had small extra symptoms from first pfizer shot, bit hot and extra dizzyness for a while but nothing really that mush worse than a usual vertigo day.

Welp, unfortunately like some others here, I have relapsed after 2.5 months of feeling normal. It was almost like I could feel it coming on. I had a couple of days leading up where I would feel off/dizzy for a few minutes, but then it would go away. 

I’m 7 days into this relapse and so far I think it’s less intense than the first time. But maybe that’s because I know what’s happening. I am taking Benadryl and ibuprofen again and hoping for the best. Pretty disappointing to feel like this again after 2.5 months and was considering getting the second dose up until last week!

Couple of questions for everyone here (feel free to DM)

1. Has anyone that’s only had one dose been infected by the delta variant?

2. Have your relapses lasted less time than the original issues?

3. Has anyone with both doses relapsed after recovering?

Hi there, 

I'm new here - hello from Canada!  Thought I'd chime in on this topic as about 1.5 weeks after receiving my 2nd dose of the "dreaded" Astra Zeneca vaccine, I developed severe balance issues, completely out of the blue (severe enough that I was terrified I was having a stroke or a heart attack and was sent to the hospital in an ambulance). One minute I was fine, the next minute, any movement or attempt at walking felt like I was on the deck of a ship in the most turbulent of stormy waters.  I was literally lurching from one point to the next, grabbing on to anything I could to keep myself from sidestepping/falling over. 

Thankfully, after several investigations (3 ECGs, CT Angiography, MRI of the head, neck x-rays, ALL the blood tests) and a visit to an ENT, anything sinister related to my brain or heart was ruled out.  The ENT suspected vestibular neuritis, but was unable to give me a firm diagnosis, although when I mentioned the proximity of my symptoms to receiving the vaccine, she nodded her head in the affirmative saying, "OH, that makes sense, we're seeing a LOT of people having this reaction lately."

A little over a month after first experiencing these symptoms, while I am much improved from the day they hit me, (I'm finally able to drive again and it doesn't feel like I'm looking at the world through an unstablized camera any more when I'm moving) I am left with daily persistent balance problems - things are still just a little "off". I'm hopeful that with time the symptoms will continue to subside even more (or my brain will just adjust) - but this has been a very debilatiing experience overall - not the least of which has been a high state of anxiety (which of course only seems to exacerbate the problem). 😵 

Anyway, that's my story - who knows if it actually was the vaccine that caused this - but in the absence of any other reasonable explanation, and having ZERO experience with this before in my life, I almost feel some sense of relief having something to blame it on...

Very interesting reading everyone else's experiences, and while I wish none of us were experiencing this, there is also some comfort in knowing I'm not alone here!

@dizzzy2021 So are you not in the US?   Because there are definitely ways to get Ivermectin in the US.  Outside of the US I am not sure but considering it is one of the most widely used drugs around the world it seems there should be some way you can get it.

Not painful but very annoying. This morning shortly after awakening I could swear my left foot and calf jerked straight up by six inches round more. I do have a strange sensation before the theses events. Don’t know if it’s called Restless Leg syndrome or not given the medical profession names all bodily functions something. 🤪

Don't  assume that because YOU didn't have any severe side effects that no one else will.  There are accounts, one after another, on this forum of those who DID suffer long-standing and severe vesibular side effects.  Some did have preexisting vestibular or migraine conditions, some had no preexisting conditions.   So there is no way to know who will or won't suffer these affects, or long long they will last.

Unfortunately, I also know how disappointing relapsing is!

I don't believe I've been infected by Covid-19 of any variety since having Moderna vaccine in early March this year.

I have recovered significantly, 85%+ ...but I believe I have remaining permanent vestibular injury.

I definitely will not ever be going back for any more Covid vaccination.

Yes, my relapses have lasted less time than my first post-Covid episode. There has also been increasing interval time between my relapses, which is encouraging to me.

(I believe that I've read here that some others have gotten 2 doses, then experienced relapse following recovery.)

Well wishes for you, and for us all! 😏🙏

Honestly, I think it varies according to the symptoms and how severe they are...for me I had my second dose of Moderna on 5/2.  It has been 12 weeks for me...My one and only symptom is ringing in both ears...On July 2nd I had my first breakthrough...went from a 10 to maybe a 6 or 7...has been pretty constant...there have been one or two nights where it spiked...however, I was not freaked out about it and the next day it waned down again...I have been following Tom Bunker...contracted Covid-19 twice...started an intermittent diet...eat all your meals within an 8 hour window and stop...for the remaining 16 hours NO FOOD...your body goes into autophagy...Saturday & Sunday water fast...next week repeat the process...I am in my second week of following this and have seen a real breakthrough...I would say I am now at a 4 or 5 level...Sometimes, I can actually feel the inflammation going down in my body...really weird...but it is working...

Autophagy is the body's way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells, according to Priya Khorana, PhD, in nutrition education from Columbia University. “Auto” means self and “phagy” means eat. So the literal meaning of autophagy is “self-eating.”Aug 23, 2018

@s-m-a 

I have noticed swollen lymph nodes in my neck...actually, just noticed them as the inflammation is waning...actually, lost a little of my sense of taste from it...

I also relapsed but received both Moderna vaccines (1 in beginning of April and 2 in beginning of May) My recovery period was roughly 3 weeks before I relapsed. I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself that if we recovered once, we will recover fully at some point. Our bodies are just taking some extra time to heal from the reactions.
