It sounds like you are getting hit harder than many of us and I am sorry for that. After 10 weeks from 1st Pfizer I am finally feeling a little better but my symptoms were 24/7 dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, right ear pressure (shot in left). After the first 6 weeks, Every 2 weeks I felt a little better than previous 2 weeks. Hopefully you will be able to see some positive change soon. My dizziness is almost gone but still have little ear pressure and tinnitus.

It seems that there are a lot of people with Vestibular side effects after having the vaccines. I see here & on FB private Vestibular groups. I also got terrible BPPV & Vestibular Migraines & it's only getting worse these last couple weeks after having both Pfizer doses.

My last full blown Vestibular attacks were 4 years ago. Last time it took a full year until the systems subsided. And here I go again. So hard to function now.

There's really nothing in the news about these possible side effects.

Thanks for sharing.  Gives me some hope this will eventually get better! I have had runs of a few good days and then it comes back hard. Just wishing it would go away already!

I feel the same way.  I received the Phizer vaccine on March 7th.  8 days later I thought I had a stroke, ended up in the hospital overnight for testing.  I had 2 MRI's and 2 CT scans which all were negative.  Vestibular therapy was negative.  I am now on steroids.   Today my balance feels alot better, but the noises in my ears and headaches have not subsided.  I am due for the 2nd shot on April 7th and an not sure I should get it.  I will have been off work for a month with no pay.  What do you think about getting the second shot?

I hope this post helps others on this forum.

I'm the one who had two night time episodes of vertigo, elevated tinnitus, possible hearing loss, diarrhea, vomiting, facial sensations, and sizzling in hands. Thankfully, it was only the two episodes.

I'm now 3+ weeks past the first Pfizer vaccine and have gotten the dizziness under control by:

1) Lots of water

2) Vitamin C 

3) Lots of walks outside and exercising

4) Meclizine (started with 25mg, went to 12 1/2 mg, and finally off of it) at night before bed

5) Sleeping on back with head elevated; trying not to toss and turn too much

I'm planning to get the 2nd Pfizer vaccine, and will incorporate the above 5 actions if I have repeat episodes.

Oh... and when I tried taking Advil, it made things worse!

New poster here, hope I'm doing this right.  Might of found a fix!!!  At least...works decently so far for my wife.

Found this thread because my wife had the Moderna Vaccine 4/25, and started feeling vertigo on the morning of 4/28 when she woke up.  She had it really bad for two days, not so bad the third day, then back again day four.

I also had the Moderna vaccine two days ago by the way, and still no side affects for me besides a sore arm, but not even that bad as the nurse put it in my dominant arm and told me keep working it out all day so it would keep the blood pumping and be less sore in the long run

Back to my wife's vertigo.  She shared her situation on social media, and her friend in Med School told her about the "Epley Maneuver".  So far I read one other post where someone said it did not work for them, but I do urge you to try it.  It's pretty easy and yields immediate results.  On day 4 we did this and she felt better immediately!  On day 5 she woke up with vertigo again and then we did it again, and she feels better again.  Even if we have to keep doing this every morning when she wakes up until we figure out a permanent fix, it's better than her feeling crumby all day.

I've added some video links below.  One just walks you through the process on a real patient, while the other is more of a CGI animated video that explains the process in more detail and talks more about the eye twitching.  Watch as many videos as makes you feel comfortable until you are ready to try!

Let me know if you've tried this and if it worked or not for you!  I just want you all to feel better like my wife does!

I had no symptoms from my first dose of Moderna. The second dose I had minor flu-like symptoms for about 24 hours the day I received it. Enough to keep me home sleeping all day, all that night and most of the 2nd day. No other symptoms for 2 or 3 weeks and now I feel dizzy like I am floating. The first day this started it was like a switch that turned on and quickly off. I experienced this 10-15 times throughout the day. The next day it was less maybe 6 times. Today I am feeling it almost none stop. Also I just feel disconnected over all. My brain feels fuzzy and my heart feels a little off too. No other symptoms. No headache or body pain.
