My anxiety the past 3 weeks has been so annoying along adrenal surges. Idk if there's something wrong with my endocrine system or if something is wrong with my heart, mind, etc. It's been very difficult to recover, I keep doom scrolling through the internet and eating things that trigger certain symptoms inside of me due to lack of options and knowledge. Today I also had an argument with my mom and my BP went to like 143/95 and I felt more tingling and a warm feeling in my head along with lightheadness and tingling. I got very scared that I was going to have a stroke or something, It ended up stabilizing but my diastolic pressure does not drop past 80 anymore. It's always 85-90 and I know that's not good. Idk what to do its been really difficult trying to go to doctors and figuring out how to treat my situation.

Hello All! If my story helps, so far, Pfizer 1st Shot (Allergic reaction , but regarding vestibular all ok) and Sinovac 2ns Shot, 7 September. One day after I developed HUGE dizziness, and balance problems, I mean huge at the level of one day not being able to move for 5 hours due to the huge dizziness and headache.

 

I had today a Electronystagmography (discuss with your doctor because it can be a good test if having big vestibular problems and it is not expensive). It seems I have vestibular migraines due to the vaccine. As you all know vestibular migraines can give extreme fatigue, dizzinness, strong headache. So I hope this diagnostic can help some people here and maybe speak with your doctor. I hope is transient before everything gets down as pre vaccine. Maybe there is some type of inflammation in the blood vessels around the body which can exacerbate migraines and make to appear vestibular migraines, but this is just an assumption. I still have no treatment so i will be sharing my progress. Best to all.

Hi all, 

been looking over this for a while now and decided to post, been a terrible 2.5 months for me nearly every symptom listed on here I have, my worst is the severe chest pains palpating/feeling bubbling and heart rate spike then follows dizziness and fainting feeling recently found out worse with exertion but with only light walk for about 5 mins! anyone had these symptoms? Talked to countless doctors no one seems to think it’s to do with vaccine but I was able to work and workout before! 

I’m in the same boat, except the palpating and heart rate elevation didn’t start until weeks after my initial symptoms of vertigo and hearing loss.  It was occasional, but after a quiet month/1.5 months of almost no symptoms, the dizziness returned along with a near constant “buzzing” in my head, my eyes pulsate, and now I’m getting tremors in my fingers.  This is getting to be crazy.  I had a few goods days of manageable dizziness, but then new symptoms crop up.

But I’ve been lurking here for a while and it seems like loads of people are getting the “electric” brain or buzzing. It feels like my brain and eyes and hand vibrates to the rhythm of my now elevated heart rate.  I’m getting a full neuro evaluation, like a lot of folks here, but most people report no findings.  Praying this goes away at some point.  It’s terrifying sometimes and I’ve never been a highly anxious person before all of this and had zero anxiety about the vaccine before I got it.

@aishara Hi Aisha. Im from India too and Im having the exact EXACT same thing that yoh are facing. Worst after 2nd dose. Constant rowing back and forth and all that rocking feeling you mentioned. Not spinning. Brain MRI normal, GP gave betahistine and then stugeron, none helped. ENT says nothing wrong with me. All denying vaccine as the cause but since day 1 Im very sure its the vaccine. I have taken Covaxin which is an inactivated virus vaccine. All this started on 25th June. Its been 3 months now. Though its not as chronic as it was right after the 2nd dose, its still debilitating and scary. Doc feels its stress/anxiety/psychosomatic so put me on anti anxiety and antidepressants. Please help me. Did your dizziness go? Any cure for this? Any supplement or so? What to do? Another ENT has given vestibular exercises. Not really helping. D-Dimer is also fine so no blood clots. Did the c reactive protein test today. Awaiting results. Surprisingly Im able to drive and also ride a scooter and I feel completely normal in that time. Any overexertion or even walking increases the symptoms. 

I ignored all this dizziness after the 1st dose for a month and was going on with life and did the mistake of taking the 2nd dose and worsened my condition badly. Having gait issues exactly like yours. Started vit c today. 500mg twice a day. Also Uprise D3 60k once a week Im having since 5 weeks. Whats the way ahead ?

Im so happy to find this forum. I was right this is all related to the vaccine. Doctors and relatives are denying it. Fighting this battle alone with the medical community that we have been relying on since childhood itself has a huge psychological impact. 

Vaccine : Covaxin (Inactivated Virus)

Dose 1 on 23rd June : Had mild after effects for 2 days. After which I used to get occasional dizziness if I sit idle or use the laptop or phone for more than 5 minutes. I ignored. The dizziness went on increasing day by day but I ignored it. I was continuing my life. Once I even felt a massive wave of dizziness for just sah 2 or 3 seconds while having lunch. Felt Id faint but didnt. In this period, my GP gave me a powder for low bp. Didnt work. Next GP gave me Betahistine for 5 days. Didnt work. Then Stugeron and nerve up for 5 days. Nothing helped. But I was going on. Then I made the mistake of taking 2nd shot. 

Dose 2 on 22nd July : Dizziness increased. From 25th July, the dizziness became so bad thar I thought something major has happened to me. Mom took me to the hospital and did an MRI of brain and angio which came out normal. Then did D-Dimer for clots and even thats normal. On 27th July my neighbour drove me to the hospital since I was totally unable to function. The wobbling back and forth and rocking feeling was extremely intense. I just couldnt walk. Doctor put me on an antidepressant and also have clonazepam as SOS. He thought all this is psychosomatic and cause od anxiety of vaccine but I didnt have any fear of vaccine at all. Eventually I started having panic attacks. And that made ir worse. I was trapped in this loop of dizziness and anxiety. Besides this I also had severe neck pain for 1.5 months after 2nd dose. Neck pain which cause sharp shooting pain in left chest if I leaned forward and sharp shooting pain in left shoulder blade if I leaned backwards. That has now gone almost 90%.

Today 21st September, Im still facing the dizziness but its not as chronic. Id say 40% of what it was. But I was sure it wasnt cause of anxiety but rather anxiety happened cause of dizziness. Culprit is the vaccine. The panic is lesser now, endocrine/adrenaline system is under control thanks to clonazepam but still Im anxious as to what has happened to me. And will I ever recover? If yes then when? Whats the cure? Feeling so helpless. 

2 weeks ago I consulted another ENT. Said its not vaccine as usual and that it might br vestibular migraine. She gave me Zincovit and some vestibular exercises. But I dont see any further improvement. She is asking me to start migraine medicines but Im reluctant. On the other hand my psychiatrist wants to start an antipsychotic and see for 15 days else he will give new meds. These people are just not ready to believe its the vaccine. And they are putting such heavy medicines in our system so confidently and charging a bomb and not even getting us out of it. 

The weirdest part, Im able to drive and also ride my motor scooter.

Im from India. Does anyone have any solution? How long it lasts? Does it cure? Anything that helps? Now sometimes Im dizzy while sitting amd sometimes in standing position. Never completely stable. Please help.

This forum is a blessing. Atleast now I know Im not alone and that I was right it was the vaccine. And that people besides are facing this exact thing. Really pissed of with these pharma companies as well as medical community. Thousands of bucks in tests and medicines and nothing helps. Yet they confidently give any rubbish diagnosis and keep looting us and fill out system with poison and never cure us. 

Also does vitamin C and D and Ibuprofen help? If yes whats the dosage? Im taking Uprise D3 60k once a week since 5 weeks. Also did the C Reactive Profile blood test today morning and awaiting its reports.

Thank you all for the awesome much needed community of this weird debilitating unknown problem that we all are facing.

@lau01 He seemed completely fine and didn't speak of any recurrence. Then again, I did not bother him with too many personal questions as that was my first time meeting him.

I know that we all want a definite date when matters shall resolve, stories of 100 % recovery that are exactly as ours, an exact list of supplements that shall cure us, but we all heal differently. I wasn't able to accept that on my own, anxiety took control, because of which I've started taking medications.

Being reassured by someone matters will resolve offers a nice feeling, but don't let it become your only daily salvation.

Hi there mate, you're situation and story is almost exactly the same as mine - and roughly around the same time frame. I was wondering how you are getting on now? 

Hope you're feeling better.

Many thanks

@anneornina Hi,

I hope you are doing well,i saw your post on the thread about the side effects of Covid19 vaccines (vertigo/dizziness) i would like to ask you some questions, if you don’t mind. I had Astrazeneca (July 28th) that night i had fever and chills, 4 days later i woke up in the middle of the night feeling like i was on a boat in an angry ocean, it’s been 7 weeks now and I’m still dizzy and have a very strange sensation in my head. Did your symptoms go away? What did you do? Did you get your second dose?I am really scared to have mine. I have another month to think about it but at this point my dizziness hasn’t really changed, some days it’s tolerable, some days it’s really horrible.I feel hopeless sometimes. I hope we can all find answers or cure .
Keep safe

@mountainmama same here i have never suffered with anxiety before now and 2 week after having my 1st vaccine jab I have been having all these different symptoms, seems like I have like flare ups but goes around in circles all different symptoms. Trying to stay positive I’m 3months after vaccine and I do have good days like 2/3 days a week but can always feel my symptoms lingering on my good days.  
Just want some answers, or Atleast pointed in theright direction, just started to pay private to try get some answers, one thing I will say is I’m on prochlorperazine which helps with my dizzy spells and kind of helps my anxiety aswell to a certain extent. 
I just hope that everyone on here just start to get better I’m thinking by maybe month 5/6 we will see improvements shame there’s no quick fix.

Today marks exactly 12 weeks since I got vaccinated with my first Pfizer shot. Yesterday's headache was gone when I woke up, but it came back when I tried to put new shoelaces in my shoes, basically everything mentally now triggers my headache, having a conversation, driving, gaming, shopping, etc.

It just feels like my brain is fried and it's very depressing, hopefully this will improve in the coming weeks. I'm also having a blood test done tomorrow so I hope something shows up which is causing this.

I first discovered this forum in March, after developing inner ear problems following my first AZ vaccine in the UK (I had Pfizer for the second one with no additional side effects). I occasionally visit this forum, but this is my first post. After over six months, I have seen some gradual improvements even though I am not yet “cured”.

I initially developed a cold sore after the vaccine (I often get cold sores when fighting a virus) and felt lightheaded and dizzy only when walking. I didn’t have room-spinning rotational vertigo or dizziness using stairs, standing, lying down, sitting or even driving. A few weeks later, I started feeling queasy due to the swaying sensation (like walking on the deck of a ship or as if I had a few beers). I also noticed tinnitus in my left ear.

I was certain it was an inflammatory response to the vaccine. I had telephone and face-to-face appointments with a GP and an urgent care practitioner who said it was probably labyrinthitis due to the vaccine. They suggested travel sickness medication for the queasiness, but it made me drowsy. They also prescribed Betahistine, which made me drowsy and didn’t help with the dizziness.

I finally saw an ENT specialist privately due to long NHS waiting lists, and he said that inner ear dysfunction is fairly common after Covid-19 infections and also as a vaccine reaction. He examined me and ran various tests and diagnosed “likely left-sided vestibular hypofunction”. He said he did not recommend any drugs, scans or further testing and referred me for vestibular rehabilitation. He said the body can compensate for inner ear dysfunction, the brain can “retrain” to restore balance function, and that habituation to tinnitus is often effective. He recommended a tinnitus smartphone app, which I haven’t tried since it’s less bothersome than the dizziness.

I have been doing vestibular retraining exercises from a balance therapist and from online videos for about four months. I have seen some improvement with some better days and some worse (often with variations in the same day with symptoms getting often worse by the afternoon and evening). As others have reported on this forum, it seems to be a case of “two steps forward, three steps back”. I’m pleased that the queasiness is pretty much gone after lasting for several months.

The balance therapist said improvements are difficult to notice when you live with something 24/7. I asked if I should make another ENT appointment or see a neurologist since I have not experienced dramatic improvements. He said another ENT appointment may not add much, although a neurologist could provide a “second opinion” since it’s sometimes possible to have a migraine condition (without headaches).

I have not seen a neurologist since my symptoms don’t seem to match what I’ve read online and I have no previous history of any migraine, headache, vestibular or ear-related problems. I’m not sure that scans and further testing would necessarily result in anything useful (in addition to the fact that I would have to pay unless I went onto long NHS waiting lists). I have seen a chiropractor for neck stiffness and an acupuncturist. These sessions didn’t improve the dizziness per se, but I certainly feel more relaxed.

Despite the past six months, I’m cautiously optimistic since things are a little better and I’ve also met people who have had inner ear dysfunction, labyrinthitis and BPPV following a cold or flu virus and they all reported that things gradually improved over time. I agree with others that alcohol makes it worse! I guess I’m “lucky” that my symptoms have not been debilitating, despite being uncomfortable and very annoying!
