I just wanted to pass some information on that may be helpful to anyone hesitant of getting the second vaccine or boosters in the future. After getting vestibular neuritis after the second dose of pfizer I was referred to an immunologist. A highly recommended one and a leader in this field. He believes my vestibular neuritis was an overactive immune response and that getting a future vaccine can be perfectly safe for me if planned properly. He told me that before getting a vaccine my immune system would be prepared to handle the vaccine with 2 medications... One of them was prednisone and Im sorry but I cant recall the second. So it would definately be worth it for anyone worried about getting the second shot and becomming fully vaccinated to discuss with their doctors as its possible to do safely and minimize the risks of these types of side effects.

@peyton3418 I haven’t had hearing loss or constant ringing but I’ve had instances where my ear feels full- like I have a cotton ball in there. I could still hear, but it just sounded off kinda. I’ve been having what feels like a shaky brain and some upper back and neck pain, mainly on the right side. Still feel like I’m in a pool or on a boat. 
I do get some ringing here and there, but it’ll last like 3 seconds and go away. 

I def feel exhausted all day long, but taking magnesium seems to help with it. In an earlier post, I posted the two supplements I’ve been taking to help me with all this. 

ive eliminated caffeine for now, as I noticed that was a trigger. My diet had always been pretty clean though, so I think I’m okay in that area. I’ve barely drank during all this. I’ve tried to have wine here and there, but it’s usually a small glass.

@redm I’ve been the same. The last 8 days since I relapsed I’ve been waking up with panic attacks which is just awful. I think that’s down to cortisol levels being higher in the mornings but it’s the absolute worst thing to wake up starting the day with panic and dread 😢

@timeandwater hey I’m in the UK and experiencing the same symptoms as you. My second AstraZeneca jab was on 8th May so I’m almost at the 12 week mark now. I’ve been talking to a very helpful local pharmacist who’s also had similar post vaccine side effects as us, and lasting around 12 weeks so naturally if anyone goes to him with the same issue he is helpful and very frank on the matter. He updated me yesterday on what’s happening now in the UK because he’s following it closely. He advised me to ask my GP to refer me to my local Long Covid Clinic for treatment and if the GP won’t, then to approach the clinics  directly for help. He is a locum so he works in 3 other areas to mine and he said in some areas he is seeing the vaccine injured are now being treated in these Long Covid Clinics but whether or not your GP will acknowledge it’s vaccine injury and refer you is another matter. He also recommended CBD oil to calm nervous system, reduce inflammation and anxiety. I’m on a low dose of propranolol at the moment but ideally want to come off these to go on to CBD but need to pay to speak to a private GP before I do that I think because CBD oil can interact with other medications. NHS referral lists for any kind of specialist are around 6 months at the moment. All of this just adds to the anxiety! Anyway always happy to chat if you want to private message me on here

I had my first Moderna vaccine five months ago 3 days after I started having migraines 3 days a week. Prior to this I had a migraine maybe once a year. Unfortunately I was talked into getting the second dose and things got even worse. I now have migraines almost everyday sometimes three times a day and I have retinal migraines which I never had before. I’m also suffering from vertigo which is new. It’s been five months! I’ve tried steroids which I couldn’t take I’ve tried Nurtec didn’t work I’m about to start an antiviral medication. I’m so scared this is not going to end and that I might have ruined my life by taking this vaccine.I’ve even thought about going out of the country to get IV stem cell therapy. Does anyone have advise or hope?

The good news is, the ear fullness does goes away. So if that is something you are worried about, it sometimes takes a week or two but generally does resolve itself. I have struggled with episodes of ear fullness since a little girl, and have found that wearing ear plugs when out or around loud sounds definitely help prevent irritation. Good to know that magnesium has helped you! Keep me posted on your symptoms as I will with mine. Hopefully the end is near, I'm ready to get off of this cruise ship from heck.

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.

 

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.  

 

I never said you wont have some effects from vaccine but the population of this forum thread is infinitely smaller than the population as a whole that have quite happily had no symptoms, but the main point being the absolute nonsense and scaremongering being peddled by the wannabe doctor. If you have genuine concerns talk to your actual doctor directly rather than the pretend doctors on the internet claiming mRNA genetic modifies you, telling you to take chloroquine or Ivermectin to protect against covid and don't get jabbed you will regret it.. well you will regret it more if you happen to one of those unlucky people that get covid badly and die tbh. Incidentally, you think the scientists that created these vaccines might have also thought about the known risks of ADE with vaccines already (which they did long and hard). Has Trump got a lot of spare time these days to be on here or something? 🙂

Laugh a minute already this forum thread and I only happened upon it by accident as I am due the second jab and wanted to see people experiences with existing vestibular conditions and whether it increased their issues.

@beto something that really helped was a back massager. My muscles were rigid. Real bad. It really did lessen them up and I believe it helped some symptoms in my head. Also, time. It sucks, but that is what seems to help a lot of people. I am following the I-Recovery program on the FLCCC website. It will lost the vitamins and amounts that a lot of people take and help you out with finding a doctor if you need one for some of the prescriptions that may help. Also, antihistamines help. Nothing has cured it, but it seems to lessen in severity with time and many folks recover. Baths seem to help me too, especially if I'm having a migraine, which used to never happen to me before this.

Hello everyone. I wanted to update everyone with my status since I decided to get my second shot. I still feel fine a few days later. Some mild symptoms similar to the first shot but nothing as bad as it was before. I have made the decision to stop posting. Over the past few months this forum has been a ray of light for me during troubled times. However posts have become more extreme and divisive. It’s not a single person but seems to be more of a growing attitude as this forum grows. I would remind everyone that it is your personal decision what you decide to do with the vaccine. Don’t let one person sway you either way. Let’s not bash others if they decide or don’t decide to get the vaccine. We are all in the same boat. If I have a major setback I will let everyone know. Thank you everyone. It’s been nice getting to know a lot of you.

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

How long was?
