If you read the many posts on this forum you will see that most have experienced vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus and other inner ear issues.

I believe there is truth in what you are both saying. 

Case in point:  The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 added three new qualifying reasons for Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) originally enacted a year ago. See Reason #8 below.  I don't think the government would have added this reason unless they anticipated that people were going to have more than just "MILD" side effects from the Covid-19 Vaccine. The EPSL provides for 10 days of Paid Sick Leave.  

  1. Is recovering from any injury, disability, illness, or condition related to such COVID-19 immunization;

See details on the Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL):  American Rescue Plan Act of 2021

In addition, the World Health Organization established a No Fault Fund to compensate people from serious side effects from the Covid-19 Vaccine in 92 Countries. See: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/who-agrees-compensation-fund-for-serious-covax-vaccine-side-effects/ar-BB1dVGvF

It is important to keep notifying our Doctors, CDC and Vaccine manufacturers about these significant side effects. Praying everyone feels better soon and their symptoms all resolve completely!

i read, actually i immediately understood that it is vaccine side effect. Today my ear is so loud. I will see ENT only in a week and i really do not have much hope that the doctor will take me seriously or  will help me. My HP said that i do not have what i am talking about and left the room. I was at the ER and they scheduled appointment to E NT on the May. Checked my head and said that it is all right. I follow advises of the people of this forum.

I received my 2nd Pfizer shot on Monday, March 29th. On day 2, I experienced chills and body aches.  I took cold medicine and went to bed. Today, I am experiencing dizziness and it is NOT a good feeling!  I plan to Google dizziness remedies.

I though the dizziness had stopped, I was ok the last couple of days but it has come back.

It's been five and a half weeks since getting my first jab. I can't drive nor have I got the confidence to go out even. This is so debilitating. I have reported my symptoms via the yellow card scheme.

Hi, I think from what I've read here, that people have been feeling the same way as you do. My dizziness is still with me five and a half weeks after my first AZ jab. I cannot drive and I've no confidence in going out alone. I thought it had abated but it came back. I hope this is temporary, some people here have returned to normal, I guess it's different for everyone. I'm no longer working but if I were there is no way I could drive to work. Hang in there!

@tabby did you report adverse effects from your vaccine? You can report by going to fda.gov site or google report adverse event and the vaccine “Pfizer covid vaccine”

I’ve just googled Covid side effects and found this forum.  I had my first Covid vaccination (AstraZeneca) a couple of weeks ago.  Fine no side effects until about four days ago when I have started to feel mildly dizzy.  I was wondering if as the vaccine begins to get into my immune system if the vaccine has caused this. I am asthmatic and have arthritis but haven’t changed my medications, am retired too and not stressed and shielding at home still and seldom go out.

I am 10 WEEKS IN NOW!! and trying very hard not to sink into it but I am exhausted, depressed and ready to cry but feel like if I do I will not be able to stop crying. Feel like I want to lie to concerned family members to minimize how I feel and present the 'I'm ok, oh, well, I can deal, hopeful attitude' as I am tired of telling them how I really feel and getting the how sorry they feel for me, etc. I don't want to be that person. In truth, I have not choice but to deal - just trying to remain more positive than defeated - but it is getting harder by the day.
I have posted a bunch of my story here on the forum and am so thankful to have found you all! I have also found a great ENT (She is a Physicians Assistant) who is compassionate, understanding, and caring. She said basically all this is so new and that the exact how and why's the vaccine may have caused this is and what it is doing is basically unknown. I'm going for more testing - she called mini torture sessions - mostly for balance to try to determine if this is ear or brain related - or maybe both. Not sure it really matters at this point but going to go through the motions anyway.
Not sure if this is coincidental - would like to hear others experiences if you have tried physical therapy - but I think it made mine worse. I just moved at about 7 weeks into this, so my new ENT suggested trying the Cawthorne-Cooksey exercises which I did for two days then wound up in the hospital again with extreme dizziness and non stop vomiting. Dr at hospital put me on Meclizine (25mg 4 times a day for 5 days - but now I am down to 3 a day, then going to 2 and then to nothing to see if maybe my body's own defenses might kick in) - but they also suggested going for PT. Went to PT where they did all kinds of eye test, balance, and shaking of head stuff - that night I had a lot of dizziness which up until then had been coming in waves of varying degrees - and somewhat manageable - where I could still work at home remotely, lying down and taking breaks when needed. I could walk my dog and just do what I called riding the wave if I got one. But now the dizziness is non-stop and constant. Tinnitus is and has been constant from the start. I mostly cannot hear out of my left ear but then it comes in about half but sounds like people are talking out of a tin can.
It is almost impossible to function at this point. I am basically bed ridden trying to work full time on my laptop with files strewn about the bed - but nice to have my dog curled at my feet...but I need my desk! I need to be able to fully engage all day for work and I am finding it extremely difficult.
I have been dosing on vitamins C, D, B-12, Lipo Flavonoids, eating lots of foods that are supposed to be anti inflammatory. Ibuprofen seems to almost make me feel worse - but not sure if it could be the times I take it coincide with bad days.
I am feeling much like a casualty of war - the war on Covid - as I am sure many of you are, too. We understand the importance of getting widespread vaccines - as our civilization and life as normal basically depends on it - but, I think the side effects are being minimized in order not to scare people off, but if a little more attention, instead of denial, to the side effects we are having, maybe more research can be done to help and understand what it is doing to us, more doctors would be aware and not discount this as being caused by the vaccine.  I am hoping to feel better enough this weekend to report my experience on VAERs and was thinking of writing to a bunch of media people just to try to get our story out there. Not sure I can muster up all the energy for that.
This is the first morning in a week that I am able to sit in a chair at my computer to write but have found all your posts so comforting. Sorry for such a long post.. I just felt I could talk here and get some of this out...but holding back the tears the whole time. Thanks for listening!

Hi - I had both Pfizer shots, 2/25 and 3/19. I had strong dizziness for a few days, but then continued up until now, along with an ill feeling in my head. A few weeks ago I noticed slight ringing in my ears, that got louder a few days ago. That latest development really alarmed me.  (I had contacted my doctor before getting the second shot, but because I had had some extensive dental work, he thought it was not shot related.) A friend suggested acupuncture to me. I saw a top acupuncturist yesterday, and he told me that my vestibular nerve is inflamed. He told me he has seen and treated several people for this who had the Pfizer vaccine. I am on a five treatment plan. He told me to expect to feel better after 2 to 3 treatments & I am optimistic this will help. I think the ringing is better already, but since the level goes up and down, it may be too soon to say. I thought it was inflammation, but did not know how to address it.  (In the J&J study, 6/7 people with these issues recovered in an average of 35 days. I think one had hearing loss. When I contacted the acupuncture office, they told me it was important to get early treatment so as not to have permanent damage. Who knows if this would resolve on its own or not! I feel much better addressing it.)

I had Astra-Zeneca 1st jab on 20 February, had usual side effects for a couple of days, then got so dizzy and nauseous that I could barely get to the bathroom.  I'm a 69 year old female.

This lasted for four weeks - doctor prescribed cyclizine hydrochloride, thank goodness, couldn't manage without this. Spent most of the time in bed, only now gradually getting better, but dizziness comes back if I try to do too much.

I have a history of vestibular problems and have had rehabilitation therapy in the past. I reported symptoms via the UK yellow card system.

I'm very worried it will come back when I have the second dose on 9 May - has anyone had any experience of this?

Oh Holly, I am sorry you took a chance to do your part to end the virus & the vaccine has left you feeling awful. I had Pfizer & it took a full month after 2nd shot for the vertigo & other symptoms to go away. But I am still tired & sometimes feel nauseous out of the blue- it’s still the lingering effects of the vaccine- I know my body & how to “read” what I am feeling. I found aplpha lipoic acid & resveratrol has made a huge difference .  I was ready to call my naturopathic doctor who is also an acupuncturist , but I feel I am SLOWLY getting better.  The winter  weather is starting to break here so being outside helps tremendously . Try walking everyday & some gentle exercise. EFT tapping helped me tremendously - it has many times when I have had illness or injury- I like the guided (check out youtube- Julie Schiffman ) I find if I take any type of prescription drug for more than a few days, it destroys me- my body can not handle it- I will just vomit. I believe you will get better, like me but perhaps just slower. I don’t think I could work ( I just retired this year)  as I get so tired during the day, yet my sleep @ night is horrible-waking up constantly. But I am going to beat this-as you can too-stay strong!

30 years living with BPPV which comes n goes ( mainly gets activated if I sleep on my back or get in a plane). First dose of Pfizer had me really dizzy for one day followed by 8 days of only slight dizziness so could still Work.  Second dose caused one day of dizziness n chills, no fever. Luckily everything back to normal. It seems the bodies immune response goes into overdrive ( that is probably why it is 95 effective). Would I get the vaccine in the future, you bet I would especially after hearing my neighbor same age as me (62) was in hospital for 14 days ( no underlying health conditions)
