  • Hello,

I just discovered this forum and I was really glad to see I am not alone.

I took the first and only jab on the 14 June and it has been horrible.

The day after I started having really strong pressure headaches on the front and sides of the head as well as intense dizziness and lightheaded. I also felt strong pressure on the back of the eyes.

After 2 weeks with no improvements, I have already visited 2 neurologists and 1 ophtalmologist, whom prescribed alprazolam, arlevert and magnesium supplement during 8 days.

As this point, the headaches finally disappeared almost completely, however I still feel heavy dizziness and lightheaded.

I am getting desperate, worrying that it will get permament.

Prior to the jab I was healthy with no known diseases.

@ksimon - hi buddy, I was feeling the same. Two weeks post vaccine, my  head pressure was constant. Now, their intensity have reduced. Today, I am 3 months post vaccination and had a very bad attack yesterday with ear/head pressure.  I assure you that head pressure will improve with time. I still get dizzy sometimes but its not as bad as before. Others have mentioned recovering in 3-7 months.

For the next few weeks, I had TERRIBLE head pains every day, fatigue,

I am having the same issue.  I guess I have to count myself lucky that the headache, fatigue is the only issue I'm dealing with in regards to the V. The fatigue has been crazy. Seems no matter how much I sleep, I still feel 'drained'...as i write this, my head is hurting...though only slightly.....

I wanted to report back. I got a dose of Moderna at noon this past Sunday. My first dose was Pfizer back on April 16. After the first dose, I had three months of dizziness, left arm and leg going numb, trouble doing everyday things and serious fatigue. Today is day 5 since the second dose and I haven’t had the same symptoms yet. I hope they don’t return. Last time the dizziness started to show up around 3 days after and then progressively got worst for several weeks.

The pharmacist at CVS did not want to give me the Moderna shot at first and said I need to stick with whatever I got first round. I explained my situation and pressed on and he agreed to give it to me. He too thought I had a mild case of Gullain Barre syndrome from the first dose. He also said I do not need to go back in a month for another shot, so I am good for a while.

If things start to go south, I will keep you updated. Good luck to everyone. 

 

Jon...definitely keep us updated. I got my Moderna at CVS (1st dose) a little over a week ago. Lightheaded and fatigue with headache I can't seem to shake. I am considering whether or not to get second dose at this point....

@memphismel  I am talking to her about reporting it to VAERS, I understand the importance for sure.  Also, she has had another visual episode since.  She also clarified the phrase she would use to describe it more closely would be 'WAVY' vision.  To repeat,  full eye exam found nothing, and its about 8 weeks since her last of the 2 shots.

Hi everyone,

I had the moderna shot 2 months ago and seem to be suffering from brain fog/inability to concentrate with light dizziness. Has anyone found anything that helps? Many thanks 🙂

@tomg where did you get these stats from? This is directly from the CDC website -

"Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. More than 369 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through August 30, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 7,218 reports of death (0.0020%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine."

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html

I can understand your upset, hopefully everyone on here will get better. Please don't spread misinformation, there is enough of that going on. Vaccines save lives, the virus is much much much worse. 7000<645,000

My intention was not to spread misinformation. My intention was to support the many people on this forum who are frustrated with doctors and other medical professionals telling them that their devastating side effects are not from the vaccine. The report that I posted essentially states the same thing as yours do, that there are serious side effects from the vaccines. The difference in the numbers does not change the underlying message.

@tabby has your dizziness and lightheadedness gotten better? I certainly hope so, and if so what have you found to help alleviate the symptoms? 

I will continue with my vestibular therapy as I've heard it can take several weeks to help.

I had my concussion Nov 2019 and my symptoms of dizziness affecting my visual perception seem to have come back with a vengeance following my 1st Pfizer vaccine, it seemed to last several months All my therapists told me it is normal to have some regression but not to this point it took me a while to make the connection. I am feeling better now and am afraid to get the second vaccine and don't know what to do. I was glad to see this forum as I have not found a doctor that has any knowledge of this connection.

Yesterday was month 4 since my second Moderna vaccine. I can't tell if I am better or worse or about the same. I am still experiencing daily dizziness and tinnitus which is especially worse at night, so I guess it really depends on the time of day you ask me. 

These are thankfully my only remaining symptoms. I stopped taking Valium this week as well. I'm sort of torn on that decision. The valium really knocked the dizziness down, however, I don't want to become addicted. I took 2 to 4 mg (which is an extremely small dose) a day for roughly 2.5 months - still, I could sense myself becoming psychologically dependent on them. I may reserve them for when I'm feeling extremely dizzy. 

I'm also trying to stay active by just walking, lots of walking ~ 10,000 steps a day. My neurologist mentioned that it was very important when I'm feeling dizzy to keep moving, to don't lay down. Some days it is easy. Some days the entire walk is like I'm floating, but I've managed now for 2 weeks. 

As a reminder, I have covid back in November of 2020 and had Long Covid beginning in December of 2020. My symptoms included mostly fatigue and crushing headaches with pressure behind the eyes. I had dizziness as well lasting 3 weeks in January of 2021. Ironically this is the same exact dizziness I am experiencing now after the vaccine. Over time my symptoms subsided to 1 to 2 headaches a week - the dizziness and fatigue went away. I also had a mild earache in only my left ear prior to getting either dose of the vaccine.

After the first dose of Moderna, I had 3 episodes of tinnitus and 4 episodes of dizziness. The headaches also increased to approximately 5 headaches a week. At the time I didn't equate it to the vaccine. Five days after my second dose, I woke up dizzy with mild tinnitus and have had that ever since (since May 2). Ironically though the headaches completely disappeared. Haven't had one since. 

Some days are good. Some days are bad. I've tried various supplements, but none seem to really help that much. Time, a good night's sleep, a healthy diet, and a positive attitude is my strategy now. I'll admit that some days, it is extremely difficult to remain positive. I've been going through 9 months of this nonsense, but I am glad to have found this forum. I get encouraged by reading other's success stories and realizing I'm not the only one going through this hell.  

I wish everyone the best and I truly believe with time, a whole lot of precious time, we will all heal.

@jeank Yes, it took three months for me to get back to 100%. I put off getting the second shot for a while and just got it, but Moderna this time.  So far so good.

@peejay I put off the second dose for four months. Didn’t go back for Pfizer and so far, no side effects from the Moderna. I will keep you updated if anything changes. Try taking some ibuprofen. It may help. I have been taking some just as a precaution.

My finger is still the same. It hurts when I bend it. I tried different ointments and pain relievers, but none of them helped & it's been already a month. I googled my problem and so far it sounds like a  "Osteoarthritis", but I can't say it for sure as I'm not a doctor and can't self-diagnose myself. I'll go to the doctor later, but I'm worried that this problem might stay forever, however I still don't regret COVID 19 vaccination, because it outweighs the risk I could have from COVID (my both lungs are operated and had a serious problem in the past and if I would get COVID without vaccine, there's a big possibility that it could be lethal for me).

My fingers are still swollen and painful after 8weeks. Today was the first day that I was able to put my ring on. Improving but it’s very slow.

Those who got sore eyes from the vaccine, did that go away eventually?  I've been dealing with it for over a month now.
