@isismadec Yes, there are many in the medical fields that have concerns and suspect more short and long term side effects to be revealed as experience accumulates, and a number of medical providers that are not choosing Covid vaccination, as you can see if you read responses at the link I shared recently. A bit surprising, since many of them have also seen the effects of Covid infection. My brother had Covid recently, and in the process of being diagnosed, went to the ER twice with related heart issues, heart rate 190 and feeling like he could not breathe. He's seeing heart specialists and has not been released to work for a month. He's hoping to join a study of people with similarly continuing related problems. I've seen reports that up to 30% of those infected are having lingering symptoms, falling into the category of being "long-haulers". Anything having to do with coronavirus (infection, vaccination...) is fraught with much concern and uncertainty. May we each have wisdom to navigate these times!

@yoki, did the ENT thinks the dizziness is caused by inflammation of the inner or middle ear?

@gloriam hi Gloria - I'm so sorry both you and your husband are going through this! If you've read a number of the posts here you know you now have the company of a number of fellow-sufferers. It seems that some report to be getting better and others have been learning to cope. For myself it's a bit hard to figure out how much is improving and how much is coping, but although I have better and worse times I do believe I'm improving. Like you, I had one episode of unexplained vertigo prior to this - but I was ok the next day. I've been dealing with this for a month now and been seen at my clinic and the ER but haven't been offered meaningful assistance toward recovery, only encouraged that hopes are it's temporary. I'm ready to ask for some physical therapy next week to see if that will help. I did find out I have a very low Vitamin D level which can contribute to dizziness and was offered an 8 week prescription for that. If you read through the past posts you'll find other ideas of things people believe have been helpful for them. I hope both of you feel better soon.

I just want to thank the person or persons that are reviewing and releasing our posting to this forum! It's a life ring toss for me to grab into sanity and hope as I go through this. I know this website is normally probably used by those dealing with new acute or chronic issues of this nature, but I'd guess you've had an unusually large influx of activity related to the question of dizziness related to Covid-19 vaccination.

I believe this is an invaluable service to be providing as a source of confirmation and confidence to advocate for ourselves ...and a valuable resource for the present and future informing of others about this association of symptoms that have occurred in such close proximity to Covid-19 vaccination. Again, thank you!

Well this is kind of concerning now. I was part of a FB group where people also were discussing side effects they experienced from the vaccine. I dismissed it as anti-vaxxer craziness at first and convinced myself to get the vaccine next week. I was doing a bit more research and came across this board. From the way you guys have described your symptoms, and considering this is an actual health forum with nothing to peddle, I now have genuine concerns that this is actually happening to people. 

I tried to go back into the FB group to read more, but it's no longer up- probably deleted as misinformation or fake news. Now I can't help but wonder how many of those claims are actually valid, and how many others I am not hearing about because they are being deleted as misinformation. 

I am by no means a conspiracy theorist or anti vaxxer. In fact, I want the vaccine and think misinformation is a problem. But as someone who was also considered "healthy" and "crazy" by the medical community, while I suffered for years before figuring out what was wrong with me, I also know how easy it is to be dismissed. I know there's a lot of crazy talk regarding the vaccine, but how much of it might actually not be crazy at all?

Anyone have suggestions on quieting inflammatory tinnitus from the vaccine? I’m on 10 weeks now of constant ringing and will take any advice.

@sarap I am trying acupuncture.  Studies have shown its effective for tinnitus and my acupuncturist says others have come to him with post vac dizziness and tinnitus.

I got my first Pfizer vaccine on 12/26 and had no side effects. I got my 2nd on 1/14 and have had dizziness and almost a shock/wave feeling in my head intermittently ever since. I've never had problems with dizziness or vertigo before but it's annoying and anxiety provoking. I'm a healthy 45 year old and I work as a physical therapist. I've tried PT maneuvers but nothing works. It's worse when I lay down but I never feel quite right. Anyone else have this happen? It's been almost 3 months!

@dunkz I also struggle with anxiety and having this dizziness on top of it doesnt help, I know. I thought it was tight traps and I have been stretching and drinking lots of water. Vitamin C is supposed to help so I'm jumping on that bandwagon. I had a "bad" gut feeling about getting the second vaccine and I wish I would have listened to it. 🙁

@mt53072 He didn't mention any inflammation of the inner or middle ear. I did go on a round of augmentin after I went to Urgent Care and the physician diagnosed me with otitis media. It didn't help with my dizzy spells though. I've been reading up on vestibular neuritis and the symptoms sound an awful like what I've been going through.

@sarap

i am in the tinnitus and constant ringing on my 7th week. I found the place where they treat it as a complex condition. It is Mayo Clinic but we do not have it in MA. Finally i got an appointment to the ENT, have no much hope.

@alcha123 I'm pretty certain that the vaccine is what caused my current problems. It's slowly getting better but it's been over 2 months and I'm not planning on getting my 2nd shot. I'm by no means an anti-vaxxer and I hope these posts don't dissuade you from getting vaccinated.
