Covid-19 Vaccine side effects
@judes I'm so sorry to hear about all the bad side effects. The email from VEDA is indeed timely being that I've just been thinking about this site and wondering how everyone is doing. I've been contemplating getting the covid booster, but I remember well what I went through after the 2nd moderna. It took months to get back on a reasonably even keel. My ENT put me on fluticasone propionate nasal spray after I made an appointment and reported the bizarre symptoms, and that has really done wonders in terms of preventing most recurring vertigo or even slight dizziness episodes. However, that said, I'm so leery of getting this booster. I just had the flu shot and so don't plan to get a booster for a few weeks. I'm wondering if I should at all. I surely don't want a repeat of what I went through back in April, but neither do I want a breakthrough covid infection. I have alot of catch-up reading to do here since I haven't visited this site since probably the beginning of summer or even before.
My best to everyone here.
@nath7 same here. Weight loss is quite common since we eat healthier and lesser plus less active now
@fila85 I have appetite, it’s just that I do not know why I would feel bloated or have laboured breathing after eating as if the blood circulation is not as good since a lot of blood flows to stomach and intestines. That’s just my guess.
@anotherone92 yes and seems to be more at night. Wondering what’s the reason
@sajlent probably over reaction to spike protein? Or probably some common ingredients in the vaccines
@nath7 i think many of the symptoms we are seeing are linked to autonomic dysfunction. I think this is the general term for most of the autonomic related symptoms we are seeing.
@bowie I am 5 months out, one of the long-haulers. Constant 24/7 "drunk sailor on a story sea" vertigo, brain fog, terrible fatigue, nausea/vomiting, trouble sleeping. I will write more about my story later.
But I wanted to respond to your questions because YES I WAS FOUND TO HAVE LOW immunoglobulin A and M. I am being checked out by a specialist for this and can report back later on what they say.
@maddie628 Hello to your son and to all of the other "long-haulers" on this forum. I am starting month 6. I have the same symptoms as your son. Wanted to share what has helped me. FYI I have tried probably EVERYTHING that anyone on this forum has suggested, and similarly seen countless doctors. I want to skip all of that and share ..
Only 2 things have helped me and provided true symptom relief:
1) Daily ice bath. Every day I pour 50 pounds of ice into the tub, add some water, and get in for 5-10 minutes. I have a dramatic change after this and for several hours my brain fog, vertigo, nausea, anger/irritability subsides. I have been doing this daily ice bath for several months now. A friend brings ice to my house several times a week and I now have a deep freeze dedicated for this. The background on why I started this: I see an epigenetics Chiropractor named Dr Bryan Call who runs Regen Cell Clinic in Hood River Oregon. He recommended it, and I was very dubious at first and didn't do it. I mean, who wants to do basically a polar plunge every day? But in the end I did give it a go and was amazed that it actually provides me with true symptom relief for about several hours and sort of "resets" my day.
2) The Relief Band. I ordered this device and man! it really works. When I need it, I put it on. Some days I just put it on for a little while, other days I wear it all day. It instantly cuts my nausea and migraine. The dramatic relief is unbelievable. I wish I had found this months ago. The way it works: you put gel on your wrist, then you put on the ReliefBand bracelet. It sends an electric pulse to stimulate a nerve under the skin called the median nerve. Instant relief. Amazing. Worth every penny.
@delainekylynn I am one of the "long haulers" on month 5. I thought I would chime in because I was having an almost impossible time sleeping. The one thing that has helped me is drinking 4 oz of wine (I do mead, actually)at bedtime daily. I discovered this by accident about a month ago. Prior to that I was not doing any alcohol for fear of interaction with the many supplements/meds I was taking. Anyway, bottom line is that that night I slept soundly the whole night for the first time in 4 months. I have been testing it for a month now and it works every night.
@tabby Hi Tabby, Around month 5 for me I discovered the ReliefBand device. It has been a true heaven send for my nausea. I was vomiting multiple times a day due to severe nausea. Horrible. Anyway, I ran across the ReliefBand and it is amazing - you should definitely try it. Worth every penny.
When I put it on, it instantly cuts my nausea (and incidentally my migraine) to a minimal and tolerable level.
By the way I now get their customer emails/texts and they frequently give discount codes.
@creativecat See my reply to Tabby and others about the Relief Band. Looks like you have the same symptoms too and I bet it would help you out a ton as well.
@sailor008 What we are going through is truly horrible. The constant, pain and suffering.. I feel you bro. It sounds like you and I have different neurological symptoms but maybe the ice baths would help you too ? - see my earlier post on this (I don't want to be too repetitive on this forum since I am not allowed to reply directly)
@hopetofeelbetter I wondered about micro clots too. My MRI and PET scans were normal, D-dimer levels normal. My traditional PCP dismissed the idea of trying a blood thinner. However, my private practice physician who thinks outside the box said "I have been reading some inspiring work by David Burr who runs a lab in Phoenix, he is researching if COVID and the Vaccine make the blood thick. He would suggest that if fibrinogen >310 then the blood has become too thick." He prescribed me Heparin shots but I haven't received the medication yet to start.
@jaydev55 Yes. Around month 5 I discovered (on accident) that drinking 4 oz of wine (I switched to mead) has been the cure for my sleep
