For those whose tinnitus went away how long did it take?

I experienced (and continue to) dizziness 3 days after my first Moderna Vaccine. It has now been 4 weeks and its not subsiding. My docs say its Vestibular Neuritis. One is firm that its from the vaccine while they other two are saying it could be a coincidence. How long is everyone's dizziness lasting so far?  Anyone get a steroid shot in their actual ear?

I am so glad I found this site, because about a week after my 2nd dose of the Pfizer vaccine, I began experiencing extreme, momentary bouts of vertigo when I moved my head too quickly or when I laid down at night and turned over in bed. The room would spin around me and I would feel as I was going to fall, even if I was lying down. At first, I didn't think it was the vaccine.  I tend not to drink enough water during the day and am working 16 hours a day and getting less sleep these days during the pandemic. Then, it didn't go away when I hydrated, rested more etc., and I started realizing that it all started after the vaccine. A telemedicine nurse told me I should report these symptoms on a national website, but the form asked for all sorts of medical information, including the lot number of the vaccine and other things I have no clue about how to answer, and I gave up.  Then, my doctor told me that she didn't think it was related to the vaccine, because people were not reporting it often as a side effect.  Hmmm.  If it's so hard to report to someone officially in charge of this, then yes, it would be overlooked and under-reported, just as a given!  In any case, I am convinced now that it was the vaccine.  I remember when I received my shot, I immediately felt a stiffening of my neck and the back of my head on the side that received the shot.  That sensation went away mostly, but still that sense of stiffness in my neck and around my head is there subtly and I just feel it caused something in my inner ear that might be related.  Hopefully, it will go away because my doctor has not offered any remedies other than the Eppley manuever.

Adding another data point - I do not suffer from any condition that causes dizziness. I've had mild tinitus for 25 years or so. I received my 1st Moderna shot on 3/31. On 4/1 I started noticing some dizziness. 4/2 conditions are a little worse. If I don't focus I could easily find myself off balance and could easily stumble into a wall in the hallway. Sitting keeps the dizziness at bay, but there is a "fog" that persists. It's noticeable but not debilitating. I'm an analyst/number cruncher and can do my job and can drive.  I hope you all have a speedy recovery.

Hi everyone, 

i was looking for some help and came across this page. I got my first astra jab a week ago. After experiencing flu like symptoms including chills and fever, I felt immediately better just after one day. On the fourth day after my shot I got dizziness. The fifth day it was fine again and I thought the side effects are over now. But today so exactly seven days after the shot I feel extremely dizzy again. I had a walk and I felt better, but as soon as I sit or try to relax it comes again. My blood pressure is fine and my appetite is also not affected. Does anyone the same symptoms and can anyone tell how long it lasts? I have also difficulties to focus and feel tired. 
best wishes

Had my second Moderna vaccine on Feb 26th. Ever since have residual vertigo especially upon lying flat in bed and getting up. Also Tinnitus is louder with swooshing nose. My Dr said she had never heard of these side effects. Been doing Epley maneuver at home with little success. Awaiting referral to physical therapy.

The dizziness/vertigo is seemingly happening because of inflammation of the vestibular nerve. The Epley maneuver will not help that.

I don’t think I will be getting the 2nd shot. I can “manage” my symptoms for now which have not gone away. And I agree, was just saying yesterday what if we have to do this yearly?!

I for one will not get the shot this year or any other year as long as the vaccine has the potential for these horrible side effects.

while these side effects suck I guarantee covid would be a hell of a lot worse. I have a 29 year old co-worker who died from covid a month ago. Male, 29, mild asthma, no other health conditions. The vaccine also seems to be hitting people harder who’ve already gotten covid, maybe some of us were positive and didn’t know it. Annnnnd, for some reason the vaccine seems to be relieving 30-40% of covid long haulers symptoms, so it’s definitely “working” to fight the virus, even though it’s f**king us up in the mean time.

 

on a very odd side note, since getting the vaccine, my moderate tinnitus is almost non-existent now. I know many people are complaining about getting tinnitus but mine has almost completely disappeared and I’ve had it since I was 10.

@lh2021 I agree.  The vaccine is very good. While some of you are suffering more than I am, I don’t want people to not get the vaccine either.  We need this pandemic to end. I am sure the vaccine will go through some tweaking as time and side effects go by.  However, I really feel this is going to be a yearly vaccine just like the flu shot. Unless the scientists can come up with a Pan vaccine. (Which is being worked on now) to control all corona viruses.  After seeing my brother suffer with Covid for a month I would get the vaccine again. I still feel dizzy and rocky after my second shot on Feb 16th. I have an appointment with a therapist on Tuesday for an eply maneuver. My VNG test I had on March 25th showed all was normal with my vestibular system but I do have a displaced crystal in my right ear. Coincidence?  Two years ago when I suffered with dizziness and went to my balance therapist,  I told her I felt like I was going to start vertigo after looking up and then looking down. She did maneuver and nothing happened.  She thought the crystal could just be waiting to fall out. So she tapped under the bone behind my ear while I was in the head down position. Sure enough it fell out and started to spin. She finished the eply and Vertigo gone. I think this will be the case on Tuesday.  Crossing fingers. I am still able to do everything but I am cautious when moving my head. I walk, I ride my trainer and I do my weights.  None of these things I could do if I had covid. So I am counting my blessings.  Praying my rocking feeling will disappear soon.  Good luck to all

I had my first Pfizer dose March 8 and didn't experience much, if anything, other than minimal soreness in my arm. My second dose was mid day on Monday, March 29 and I felt somewhat lightheaded immediately after getting the jab. This continued until that evening when I began to feel sick. I experienced a 100 to 101+ fever, extreme fatigue, some dizziness, chills, and had trouble sleeping that night. Next day I still had the same symptoms except that I slept most of the day. On Wednesday I woke up with no fever but felt light headed and periodically during the day; this has continued the last two days. It's almost like a brain fog with very minimal dizziness. I can't remember have anything like this prior to the vaccine. I am 67, active, and in good health notwithstanding having Type1 diabetes more than 30 years. And I never experienced this even when my sugar level got low. After my second dose I signed up with the v-safe after vaccine heath checker (vsafe.cdc.gov) to provide my information and experiences to the CDC daily.

People are always going to make different choices and choose their own risks.  And not everyone is going to agree with those choices.  Browbeating them about their choice isn't going to change anyone's mind and only makes them angry.

The best thing to do is to remember that no means no, agree to disagree, and move on.  Make whatever choice you want for yourself and let others do the same, no matter how much you disagree.  Others' choices are none of your business.

Has anyone that has received any of the new Covid Vaccines, did you experience any increased dizziness or other symptoms?

I took the first shot on March 1 and Vertigo started March 28.  I am due for my second shot next week and really scared to take it.  I have not had Vertigo in at least 15 years.

I had my second Pfizer Covid vaccine on March 23. Sore arm, swollen lymph glands under arm but no other symptoms. March 31, I got up from bed and felt extreme dizziness, nausea, and it took a few hours before it subsided. Two days later, I feel very groggy and tired. Of course it hasn't been diagnosed but I have never felt this before. Worried that it might return. Have started taking Vitamin C as someone suggested.
