I took the first Pfizer shot just over 5 weeks ago now and have been experiencing insomnia ever since then. Just a few days ago my ears started ringing and it's still continuing now. Does anyone know of anything that can help with this, especially during the night?

Hi to all members !

I”m a dentist living and practicing in Athens Greece! My son 20 years old had Covid 19 last October. The symptoms were only loss of taste and smell. He had the first shot of Pfizer vaccine on the 8 of July … After 2 weeks       
the vertigo started. He had never experienced vertigo before in his life he’s totally healthy and athletic! 
He has visited a bunch of health professionals, undergone blood tests scull X-ray,Brain MRI everything absolutely normal Not even one mentioned the vaccine If it wasn’t this forum and a couple of others I would beDesperate .. 

after a month symptoms are getting weaker but not vanished!! 
I am also vaccinated 6 months ago with no side effects whatsoever!

Just registered to add my experience. I had the Pfizer vaccine a little over a month ago. After 6 days I woke up with vertigo symptoms - when I was lying in bed and tilting my head to one side the room spun around for about 5 seconds. The Epley maneuver consistently triggered it. I didn't do anything about it and just waited it out as it did not affect my daily life too much, and I was careful not to trigger it in dangerous situations. This went on for 9 days, after which it suddenly reduced in intensity by 90%. I had some residual symptoms by 3 weeks, so I delayed my second dose to the maximum accepted in my country (40 days). By that time I only had some slight dizziness occur when turning my head quickly.

I had the second shot in the other arm on the 13th and today (9 days later) woke up to the exact same symptoms. I did the test to see on which side the problem is, and it's on the same side as the arm I got the vaccine in. Not sure if it's coincidence or if it has some connection.

I will edit this post to add details in the future, but just wanted to reiterate that the first symptoms went away suddenly, and not gradually - so don't be alarmed if the vertigo doesn't seem to improve over time, it could be that one day you wake up and it's gone.

What annoys me though is the doctor's attitudes, that if something happens after 2-3 days, then they say it's definitely not from the vaccine, and refuse to do anything...

Hello

I'm from the UK and I'm very glad I found this forum. I've had vestibular issues when I had a shingles infection in 2017 but still went ahead and took the jab. Two weeks after the jab, I felt dizzy and did what I usually do - rest, start multivitamins, breathing exercises but it didnt help. I didnt know it was a long term effect of the vaccine.

I was sent to the neurologist, had the brain MRI which was clear and sent back to the GP. I had to pester the GP for a blood test and they found a Vitamin D deficiency and Vitamin B12 was low. I've been on the supplements but still went ahead like a nutter and had the second jab. Felt worse 2 weeks after the second jab and still struggling with dizziness (imbalance mostly - I keep moving). I am going to start high strength vitamin C and zinc - perhaps that will help? My second jab was on July 5. I guess I will feel better from September. I am better than where I was though I take it each day at a time. I hope everyone on here gets well too.

I initially posted here a few months ago but thought it best for my mental health to stay away. The "good" news is that I've since been diagnosed by my GP (after being shut down by A&E three times with anxiety or nothing at all) with chronic inflammation. He told me that time will do its thing and it will pass. In the meantime, some of my symptoms have improved, some have gotten better only to get worse, and some are brand new.

I've had itchiness; red dots on my skin; tinnitus; shortness of breath; throat inflammation; aches and pains everywhere; insomnia; dizziness; stiffness in several places; my legs buckling for no reason; heart palpitations and more. It's begun to cycle quickly now, with some symptoms that last minutes, others hours, others days/weeks.

At the moment I'm experiencing the worst/strangest anxiety I've ever had along with temporary moments of depression, suicidal ideation, and crying fits, despite being mentally fine just a few days ago. I can feel depressed for 2 hours only for it to pass as quickly as it came, but neither my depression or anxiety feel real. It's hard to describe, but they feel purely physiological; when I pick it apart I'm not actually sad or anxious about anything, certainly not to this extreme anyway. When I am, it feels incredibly heightened - a single anxious thought feels like its supercharged and spirals.

Either way, it's a nightmare to live through and, 2.5 months out, this is by far the lowest point despite other symptoms improving.

I'm doing everything I can to hold on; has anyone else had similar psychiatric symptoms? Could do with any kind of reassurance - I'm at a real low.

@memphismel Mhmm, what you're describing about your hands, is happening to me for the past week; not necessarily dropping objects, but they are shaking whenever I try to move them. As though some symptoms went away and were replaced by new.

Vertigo resolved but the inflammatory issues wax and wain. My hands hurt so bad at times and I can’t open things and I drop things

The same thing is happening to my husband's hands, it's like carpul tunnel syndrome. It's only since he had the Pfizer jab and that was around 3 months ago.

Hi, I haven't posted in a while and I was hoping by now I could say that I am better but I am not. I felt good whilst taking ivermectin, dizziness and headaches went but I am not taking it any more and I am still getting dizziness and brain fog. Headaches have abated but tinnitus and ear fullness still ongoing. Still getting aches and joint stiffness too. I am currently taking magnesium, potassium and calcium to see if that does anything. Still having sleep problems and restlessness which isn't helping. A couple of days ago I had a sweet tooth which is unusual for me and I ate too much rubbish and paid for it the day after.

Lots of new people here I notice, so sorry you are all going through this nightmare. I hope and pray we can come through this, it's difficult to keep a positive mind sometimes. I do believe we have to keep trying to lead a normal a life as possible though even though it may feel we are hitting a brick wall.

Best wishes everyone, hope old friends are doing better too.🙏😊

Hi all, my symptoms seem to be taking the form of vestibular migraine. I get the four stages of a migraine now more than anything else except they are more frequent now than I ever had with my normal migraine. Over the months symptons have changed a lot, they seem to come and go in phases but they are not so severe. My dizziness is not as bad as it was but I am sleepy a lot, perhaps it's the magnesium and paracetamol I'm taking for my headaches and general aches. Brain fog is more noticeable too. Tinnitus is still there but only worse if I take aspirin. Still ploughing through daily routine and taking breaks whenever I need them. Trying to go out as much as I can but still not driving. I've tried ivermectin and it worked whilst I was on it but symptoms returned after I stopped. I don't usually take supplements but out of desperation I took Quercetin and that gave me a four day migraine, makes sense as it has vasodilator effects. I will continue with the potassium, magnesium, calcium supplement although I'm only taking half the approved dose, just in case. I look fine, no one would believe how horrible I feel at times.

Hope everyone is making good progress and we all get through this before Christmas.

Best wishes 🙏🙏😊😊

@tabby does he have other joint, muscle and tendon pain as well? And or headaches and fatigue?

@jeank I think I’m dropping things because my hands hurt and are getting weak. I can’t even open simple bottles most days. I never had problems with my hands. Pinky finger is swollen most days as well.

@hnlinneman  Hi, I love that a Dr has recognized that it may be the vaccination. I have been to multiple dr's and no one will even consider it or talk about it. I think everyone different but in my experience, my symptoms got worse after the second dose.

Hi, yes I would say all of those symptoms. He gets fatigue like I do, it comes on quickly and unexpected and we just need to rest for a while. With me, a short rest for 20 mins sorts it. He never before complained of headaches but he does now. His hands are quite bad too, like you, can't open things, dropping things, swollen too. They loosen up when he's using them. Sometimes he aches from head to toe, so do I. He used to think that my symptoms were not vaccine related but he's feeling them himself now so much so that he too has decided not to get the booster.

Hi Jean, that is exactly how it's been for me too
