Covid-19 Vaccine side effects
@allisonk Hey has your tingling subsided now in october? How many months has it been?
@nawpan Hi, how are you feeling now in October? has the tingling gone away? I have the same symptoms, my covid vaccine was August 20
@summer hey I have exactly the same symptoms to yours. I’m wondering how yours are going and if it has gone away?
As an update, 3 weeks after start of symptoms (they began almost 72 hours post-vaccine) I saw a neurologist on the advice of my doctor, who thought my symptoms may be vaccine related since she had ruled out BPPV. The neurologist however said that it was BPPV and told me to do the Epley maneuver every night before bed until symptoms resolved. I was able to do it successfully the first night, slept elevated and haven’t had any vertigo since. I still have some minor tinnitus but am hoping that resolves on its own soon. Of course there’s no way to know if it was coincidental or somehow triggered by my immune response to the vaccine, but in any case I’m relieved to be past it. Wishing everyone quick healing!
Hi. Checking in. I just hit 16 weeks post Pfizer and I’m happy to report I’m 98% better. I thought I was 100% but I got some bad news a few days ago and I’m stressed out a bit and my joints started aching a bit yesterday.
My bad news is my father has had multiple myeloma for a few years and it’s fairly stable. Last week his blood showed sudden sharp decrease in platelets and elevated white cells and high C-reactive protein. He’s also suddenly had a lot of pain all over. They are pretty sure it’s leukemia. He recently got a booster shot. I can’t help but think it’s related. I’m heartbroken.
@memphismel that is fantastic news that you feel 98% better!! So happy for you and it gives us all hope. Although I’m sorry to hear about your dad. Hopefully he will come around and start to see some improvement and his health will turn around. Do you have any tips or suggestions on what you did to help you recover??? Again…. It is great to read good news on this forum!
@deedee I did all the supplements and stuff that’s been mentioned here… even got an immune shot a few weeks ago but I think the common denominator is time. It was a slow and steady improvement with many set backs. The annoying thing is it was probably done for nothing. I’m still likely to get Covid and I cannot work in healthcare until I get the second shot. I still hold onto all that resentment that just gets worse with time.
I have nothing new to report. I’m officially 5 months out from my second jab and still in this journey. I have had marked improvement but new symptoms cropped up two months ago (internal vibrations, brain “zaps”, wobbling vision), but those appear to be waning again.
How many of us are still working age? I have to be fully vaccinated to work at my employer (or any employer in my industry) and I’m dreading the day “fully vaccinated” gets changed to having both shots and a booster. Does anyone have any experience seeking a medical exemption? I feel like it’s madness if they require people like us, who have KNOWN and documented adverse reactions to be forced to get a booster even when some top FDA officials said there’s no evidence showing the benefit, if any, outweighs the risk.
@mountainmama I see my primary again in a few months and I’m going to plead with her. She doesn’t know the full extent as I saw her early on and she shrugged, looked at my labs, gave me an Rx for anti inflammatory meds, and told me I really should get number two. I work in healthcare so idk what I’m going to do otherwise. Clean toilets I guess. 🤷♀️
@memphismel Geez. Good luck! I hope your GP will be rational. If not, could you get a second (or third or fourth opinion)? Can healthcare workers even get health exemptions at this point?
@bowie Here is a bit of information from Oregon-a protocol (attached) for after vax I found, though I cant attribute it,
it makes sense...some here are finding homeopathics helpful....also see protocols from the
FLCCC Alliance Treatment Protocols at https://covid19criticalcare.com/ let me know how you are there in Germany ok
@mountainmama I honestly doubt it. I might have to go a religious route… it would be nice if they just dropped the whole mandate since the vaccines have proven to be both ineffective and dangerous. But it’s not really about the virus anymore.
It's 4AM here and I can't sleep. After a couple days where I was almost symptoms free, the buzzing and face paresthesia came back stronger tonight. Yesterday I did some blood tests and more and I told my husband, I was sure they wouldn't find anything wrong after reading all your guys' posts here. Well, nothing wrong with my tests...I am around week 5 after first Pfizer and my life is upside-down, I can't think about the future anymore. It has been so hard. Sending love to you all ❤
I've been looking at this forum for awhile trying to understand what happened to me.
I really wanted to get the vaccine, go back to normal. I had very little experience with vaccines and no idea how they might react with my body, but I figured it out to be more good than bad...I thought the side effects would be exactly the ones we were told to expect.
So I do the shot. I didn't feel anything until the evening of the first Pfizer shot. Then sudden dizziness spells where everything would spin and i would not be able to stand properly, and also ears ringing. I continued to get those until I got the second shot, which oddly helped with it for a few days. I thought my symptoms were gone. They weren't. Now it was the WORTS part..... eye floaters. I have a collagen defect that creates eye floaters and I had mostly learned to live with them. But after the covid vaccine, and the vestibular problems, my eyes dont know how to compensate anymore. The eye floaters are maddening. I had surgery for them and am using drops to make them look less intrusive. I'm still struggling to see, had to find all kinds of creative ways to change computer settings so I can read. Also a sense of fatigue and confusion that comes and goes. I felt at least reasonably fine before my first shot.... I also had a high thyroid ANA, which i haven't tried to figure out yet. The eye stuff is more concerning. I think a lot o my vertigo had to do with eyes not working well together because of the floaters and dilations issues. My biggest problems all had to do with vision......only about the most important thing i need and use everyday :/
I feel ripped off and angry that I got all messed up like this for 7 months now because I was trying to do the right thing. I feel disappointed and hurt. I wanted to trust. I wanted this to be the way to a solution to COVID.
I have a few different health issues in general that i have kind of a poor understanding or, and a poor understanding of why the vaccine would screw me up.... just not really sure where to go for medical care to help fix this, or to report it
I think I'm like 7 months out from the first shot, and I got the second one too. I don't know what i will do if asked to get a booster.... something bad definitely happened to me with this shot, but its complicated to explain and nobody seems to care. I feel sad and disappointed because it seemed like there was finally a solution but it was no good for me...
Hi all, first time reader and poster. I had the astra zentica in May, since the first week I have had various forms of dizziness, swaying, spinning, brain fog, extreme fatigue, tinnitus, fuzzy head. Sorry for asking as I am slowly working my way through the 588 pages, but what is the general consensus of things people have tried that have improved the situation? All my drs have said it's coincidental and the encouraged me to have the second dose. No way and I going anywhere near a covid vaccine or booster again, even sceptical of flu jabs now. I have had vestibular issues in the past, and also have a benine acoustic neuroma. Any help or guidance of where to start looking for a resolution will be extremely gratefully received. Many thanks in advance.
