If you read my posts, yes, what you said and more! I'm not being lazy, I am literally unable to type or read for any length of time. I've had severe vertigo, headaches, two eye bleeds, vision and eye problems....I felt it within an hour of my 1st jab in April but was gone the next morning. A bit more severe with 2nd jab in June and then very severe and still ongoing after my 3rd jab on Oct 7. I felt the tinnitus and vertigo/imbalance IMMEDIATELY, as I stood after the jab.

Hang in there. I am feeling slightly better after a very tough month but any exertion sets me back.

@icgaff This sounds SO much like what I've been experiencing.

I am finally feeling a bit better, but am still not working, nor really functioning...?  I am sitting up, nursing headaches and severe unsteadiness and almost any exertion exacerbates the symptoms, so I am literally and figuratively laying low...so tired of this! But a week ago, two weeks ago..I was screaming in pain, drenched in sweat from vertigo, couldn't open my eyes even in natural light because of severe head pain from any light...it was truly terrifying.

Better day today...!

Hope you are feeling better.

@nath7  hello, i want to share what helped me with my heart palpitations: i'm taking BENFOTHIAMINE, it is a form of vitamine B1.

I watched Dr Berg's video titled "Hidden deficiency in POTS ( Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)". Dr Berg made it clear that vaccination depletes vitamin B1. You can watch the video on YouTube. So, i bought Benfothiamine and started taking it. I start  to get better and to go for walks outside, i have more energy.

I send you my prayers and wish you a full recovery 🙏🏼

@maianixon This sounds so much like what I've been going through.

I am exhausted after a disastrous outing to While Foods. My symptoms hit full on from the lights and movement and I almost landed on my ass in the aisle. My friend was just freaked and I had to assure her I am about 75% better than this time last week, but yeah, I'm still in rough shape, and haven't worked either since this hit on Oct 8, the day after my 3rd jab. But I've had symptoms since the month after my first jab in April (I've written about in other posts here) and throughout the summer. I just didn't put it together until it got SO bad after #3.

But I am getting a little better...after 3 weeks on the bed, I am sitting up, eating, walking a bit, headaches and vision/eye probs (blurriness, burning, eye bleeds) are also slightly better.

I will follow your progress because it sounds like we are both going through much the same thing.

Wishing you a steadier day....Judes

I had first vaccine shot in March, the expected symptoms, headache, body aches fever, chills, all went away after third day. Fast forward to 3rd week after first jab of Moderna, I go to bed, lay head on pillow and a shooting pain in my head and my eyes couldn't focus the the room was spinning.  After about 45 seconds my eyes finally focused, the spinning stop but I had a raging headache.  Had several more episodes. Went for Jab #2 week 4, higher fever and felt like I had the flu, plus the vertigo, headache and unable to focus my eyes, like they were ping pinging in my eye sockets, an experience I've never felt before. U was so excited about getting the vaccine to protect my countrymen, family and myself, but this totally had me freaked out! My primary physician said it most likely a side effect of the vaccine, gave me a prescription for dizziness which I didn't take as the dizziness/vertigo experienced while laying down. Fast forward a month later after shot#2, started having dizzy spells while upright, walking around or setting down and headaches several times a week. Finally 5 months after #1 shot all dizziness/vertigo and headaches stopped. That only last for 3 weeks and here we go again...I plan on getting the booster, but I'm very concern. My spouse had no symptoms other than the expected ones 24-48 hrs after jab #1 & 2 and he has under laying medical issues so I do need to be safe for him.

@mountainmama hi I basically have the same symptoms as you posted and I'm at almost 8 months. I mentioned fluvoxamine to my Dr and she basically said send me some literature about it. How are you doing after a 2 week course? Hope you are doing well.

Hi, I'm taking turmeric and Tart Cherry.  I'm also taking Fish Oil and Vitamin C and D.  I'm taking it easy an resting at home.  I walk in my neighborhood.  Increasing water intake and taking Meclizine. I'm trying to get up and move around every hour and eat anti-inflammatory foods.  I was already eating the AIP diet.  I started adding fresh ginger to foods today.  Next, I'll add turmeric to water and bone broth.  Feel better~

I see you had posted this in May. How are you feeling these days? 

Are you completely cured of all symptoms? What were your symptoms and has the natural remedy - turmeric etc. helped to get cured? 

Please do respond. 

Pls use the QUOTE option while responding as it helps in knowing which comment is being responded too.

Take care!

Hi,

I started a doctoral program and began a new job teaching college.  I am better overall, but some days are harder than others.  I still have vertigo when I lie down.  I also experience a very low grade constant feeling of dizziness.  After 14 weeks of not driving, I do drive now.  Some days I am dizzier, so I am careful not to move my head in the car or while driving.  Things that cause an anxious feeling are sitting at a very busy intersection, I have to try and calm myself.  It's almost like anything causing dizziness will bring on anxiety.  I am not naturally an anxious person.  What I have found that helps most of all is swimming or walking.  During the summer, I was doing 30 minutes of swimming plus walking per day.  I've noticed the next day, I feel better.  Another big factor for me is sleep, less than 7 hours and I feel dizzier.  The three things that help me most are:  moderate exercise daily, adequate sleep and water.  

 

Best,

twa

3 months in and I’m slowing loosing it 😢 my partner is ready to leave me I can’t even look after my children I’m struggling to keep on top of my house my life is just a mess. I feel so low I can’t cope anymore 

Hang in there.  I have felt those feelings too.  I'm sure others have also in the forum.  Take things one day at a time.  Just do what you can do to get through each day.  Take care of yourself as much as you can.  If you can get outside help from friends or family then do that for now.  Keep telling yourself, this is for a season, you will get better.  It takes a really long time.  I would rest and watch tv for the first 14 weeks.  I did not drive for the 14 weeks because I was still experiencing vertigo and dizziness.  I found mild exercise everyday really helped.  Best to you ~

@nicp605 Sorry to hear you’re still in the struggle.  I feel GREAT after my two week course of Fluvoxamine.  I noticed a big difference in the neurological symptoms on day 2/3 of my 2 week course.  The dizziness also improved, but it wasn’t this huge noticeable shift.  I did start to see improvement on the dizziness front though and it got better and better.  I was so afraid that going off of the medication would cause a relapse.  I did notice a bit more dizziness and vibration/muscle twitching a day or two after my last dose, but then from there, it has been just steady improvement.  I’ve been discharged from vestibular rehab as I now haven’t had any major dizziness in weeks.  Neurological symptoms are 99% gone — I just get some random muscle twitches still under my eye and in my right hand.  So my doctor and I don’t *know* with any scientific certainty if it was the Fluvoxamine that helped or if it was just time, but personally, the difference I noticed was significant and really started me on this upswing.  I’ve been virtually symptom-free since I finished my course.  It’s only been a few weeks, so who knows if I’ll have a relapse, but I’m at least optimistic that even if there is a relapse, I know I can get better.  I hope this helps.  I encourage you to seek a second opinion if your doc won’t give you this SSRI, which is fairly innocuous for 2 weeks anyway. I had no noticeable side effects.  The only thing you have to be careful of is caffeine.  I was fine with the trace amounts in decaf coffee but one day, I decided to drink a soda and I couldn’t sleep at all that night.  It prolongs the half-life of caffeine and amplifies it.  But otherwise, no side effects.  I was so glad my doc doesn’t need 20 double-blind studies to try something. For me, it was a huge turning point in my recovery for whatever reason.

@medee Hi. My chest pain was intense in first two weeks but on and off then dwindle down on 3rd week and its like palpitations after that. I went through ECG, Echocardiogram and blood works. ALL test came normal. My cardio gave me a med for palpitations but I didnt take it and even the pain-relievers or my antihistamine for my rhinitis (I cut it down, i only take it if I can't get through the dAY BUT IN the last two weeks, It was good). I do a lot of the naturopath : proper rest (8-9hrs/day) with naps at work breaks, supplements (c,d,e,zinc,quercetin, barley juice, b12 and others then I cut down to 3). I am only taking c,d and barley everyday then sometimes e or zinc., I increased my water intake to 3L per day, cut down my processed foods/fried and coffee, only re-introduce them last week in small amounts, eat more healthy food, stay away from social media, acupuncture weekly, 3-4x light or moderate workouts/week and i Pray a lot too. I still have the symptoms of blurriness, dizziness, tinnutus, muscle pain but in little episodes to nothing. they're gone when im busy.  I am also trying to re-introduce my body to cold weather so I walk a lot everyday and wear light clothing. The only thing I'm trying to manage it is my intense rhinitis which i had i prior to vaccine, but I can manage it by resting and more water or drinking my ginger tea/garlic everyday or every other day. I am grateful the major side effects didnt linger and the minor ones are fading too and all of my lab works and tests are normal.

I went through a lot of roller coaster of emotions like the rest, but I kept my routine,work and trying to be "BRAVE" everyday cos all of my tests/check ups/labs are NORMAL. The only thing i dont do that much since the onset is meeting friends or attending gatherings to avoid some infections. Which is a wise decision to be honest these days. Time heals, I agree to this. I pray that you will get better soon. Just soldier on and we all going to beat this.

cheers.

@mountainmama I am so glad you are feeling better. I need to try something and not get just blown off. This started 2 weeks after my first jab with brain zaps. Then the internal tremors after the second for 2 weeks when I would lay down. I feel like I'm "jerking" in my head. Swaying on a boat like and sometimes the floor is falling under me, my left upper back/neck/head on my left side down my left arm is buzzing. Constant neck pain on the left side and now I apparently have some arthritis in my neck on that side. im at 35 with no issues really before that but some anxiety. And I had bad PVC"s thankfully they aren't all the time anymore. And the brain zaps are a few times a week. You contacted a Dr from the flcc?
