Ok. So I am 39 years old, no real history of medical issues (perhaps slightly overactive immune system, since I rarely get sick). I took my first Pfizer vaccine August 18th 2021. I was not worried, scared, or anxious at all about it. 

8 days later I consumed alcohol. Nothing unusual, been having drinks socially for years, no hangover, no excess amount, nothing. 

On day 10 (Aug 28th) I woke up feeling light headed, dizzy. It was a weird feeling, not like anything else I have felt before. That feeling did not go away the entire day, and turned to extreme heart palpitations for the entire day. It was the scariest feeling ever. I became nauseated, unable to take down food most of the day, and felt like I would need to call the ambulance. The heart palpitations and feeling of dread/anxiety were so strong that I could not do anything for 3 days. I saw my doctor 3 days later (Aug 31st) and in the office he measured my BP on each arm, which was high in one arm and low in the other. This was suggestive of a heart issue (Myocarditis?). I was rushed to ER. ER checked me out, but did not find anything wrong with my blood work (all normal) and no sign of heart attack or issues. Was put on a heart monitor for 24 hours, or told to take it home. That was all normal. 

My heart palpitations and feelings of anxiety did not go away for 2-3 weeks. They would come back but slowly started to wax and wane off. But it took almost a month for me to feel better. It is now Oct 18th and I am due for a second shot but I will NEVER take another shot of this again. It was the worst feeling and experience I have ever felt in my entire life. I live in Canada, Vancouver, BC, and the doctors here are striving for the highest vaccination rate in the world and striving to sweep everything else they can under the rug. I am worried that there are many people who experienced something similar but are not being given a venue to share it. 

I'm also in Vancouver, BC and have had many of the same issues. I've had true vertigo (history of Meniere's but not a symptom in over 20 years), severe headaches, imbalance and terrible eye and vision problems that are slowly resolving. I also had the heart palpitations, but that too seems a bit better. I had instant tinnitus and slight unsteadiness after my 1st jab in April and then my vision issues started, but I just assumed I needed new glasses, and I did. But I still couldn't see, or focus. I got another new scrip but same. Now those glasses seem to be working fine.

I had my 2nd jab in late June and again had tinnitus and slight vertigo for a few days. But then I then had two eye bleeds and a number of "vestibular migraines" a first and I've had migraines since age 10. I've been seen at the VGH eye clinic for a severe subconjuncitval hemorrhage (see attached! Imagine seeing that in the mirror!).

I had my 3rd jab (I was invited because I'm on cortisone and it was only 15 weeks after my 2nd, so I do wonder about that) on Oct 7 and have not been the same since. I've had the works and haven't worked in 5 weeks and fear I won't be able to ever again.

However, I'm happy to report that my vision/eye issues have resolved. The burning and blurriness are much better as is the photophobia. I'm still getting headaches and my vertigo is more like I fall over when I try to stand, but I can walk okay although it leaves me seriously exhausted (I used to walk 4 miles along the Arbutus corridor every morning before 7am!). I have to take it very easy or I trigger all my symptoms.

My GP has been great and said he was reporting my case to the vaccine injury people?? The opthamologist said she thought the meniere's was caused by the vaccine (inflammatory)  but couldn't say what caused all the eye probs, though she was suspicious.

But I agree: had I known to "pay attention" to the symptoms, or that people with pre-existing vestibular issues are susceptible, I would never have had the 3rd jab.

I do hope you're feeling better. I have a ways to go but am on my way.

@aarias1988 I don't know if it will help you or not. When my complaints were high, I covered my organs with my hands and insulted them loudly. I said I'll be fine. I command you to feel me like normal again. I said also more things. It helped me a lot when dealing with stress and gave me enough power.

@judes I’m doing much much better.  Most days 100%, sometimes I regress to around 95%.  But I also just had our first child so no sleep doesn’t help me stay 100% lol.

 

It took 6 months to get to this point.  And I’m still hesitant to do cardio/workout.  I’m still taking propranolol and clonazepam to help with the vestibular migraine, which my ENT believes will take a few more months before I can ween off.  I honestly think a few more months and life will be back to normal.

 

Once I’m fully certain that I’m better with no relapses, I do plan on posting an extensive write up detailing my story and what I did to heal myself.

I'm so glad to hear of your ongoing progress! This is incredible news and really inspires me.

I too am gradually getting better. Like you, I'm hesitant to workout because I find any exertion exacerbates my symptoms.

Thanks for letting us know how you're doing and do keep us posted!

I think I have finally built up the courage to call my provider and ask for a CT scan. 

I'm worried that my body's autoimmune response has caused inflammation throughout my body - but especially in my brain. When it flares, I get head pressure along with intense brain fog. I find it hard to think, function, or make decisions when this happens. I feel extremely off and not like myself. When the inflammation goes down, parts of my brain feel "raw" or like "pulp." I also become sensitive to light, sound, and too much activity - almost as if I've gotten a head injury or concussion. It's a very scary sensation. And it keeps happening. 

The main reason I've held off for the last five weeks is that I'm concerned the CT scan will exacerbate symptoms (especially if done with contrast.) Has anyone had a CT scan - and if so, did it show anything or make symptoms worse? Another reason I've held off is because I'm afraid it WON'T show anything, as weird as that sounds, and I'll be left with no answers about what's happening to me.

@medee honestly the first 2 months I was convinced I was going to die, that feeling slowly goes away. Don’t give up x

Did you have any issues in the heart or head? Palpitations, chest pain, weird headaches or uneasiness in the head?

What were your symptoms? And how long did it take for you to feel better? Did any tests or visited any doctors?

I'm scared of visting any as the two I did, put me in more trouble by the medication. I am not sure if I should go for any tests as the majority of people I saw here had clear reports. 

Do use the QUOTE option when you respond. Thank you for giving me hopes! At the moment I am too scared.

Yes the main test for me was a 24hr ecg basically just shows your hearts activity over the time. Only thing that has showed up something for me. Heart stopping for short periods of time etc… it’s uncomfortable to wear but doctors can get a good gauge on what you heart is doing over that time. A normal ecg only shows 15 seconds and most the time will never show something unless it’s happening right at the point. After they checked mine over they recommended beta blockers but very low dose 1.25mg which defiantly in my case controlled the heart palpitations. Other than that I would just wait it out avoid chocolate and caffeine and drink lots of water. Also try not to lean on your sides at night that made the palpitations worse. 

I hope I don't reach that stage.

Take care of yourself. Keeping you in my prayers!🤍

I have been cured of dizziness. When I got COVID-19 vaccines, I had dizziness, heart palpitations, tinnitus, and leg pains. My doctor said vaccines reduced my folic acid and vitamins of B12 in my blood. I used vitamin drugs, did dizziness exercises, and ate healthy things. Then I recovered from that about one week. 

Hi, what did you do for the palpitations? Or did you let it subside without medication?

I did not have heart palpitations since last one month. Went to a Neuro who gave tablets for nerve pain/anti depressant... took 1 on Sunday since then I have bad heart palpitations.

Now its little less bit still not gone completely. I'm wondering how is it that one tablet caused it to go crazy for so long. By now I qas hoping it will go back to normal as I stopped taking that tablet. Not sure if the side effect of the tablet is still there or the tablet has really caused some issue in my heart. I'm concerned.

Please use the Quote option while replying 

@medee Never use that tablet again. It affected your heart. Peppers, smoking, coffee, cocoa, chocolate and stress, all give you palpitations. Eating fatty foods too. It is my experience.

The only reason I took it as it mentioned for nerve pain and anti depressant. Had it only mentioned anti depressant on the website, I wouldn't have taken it at all. 

It's been 3 days since Sunday and I still have the after effects of that one tablet I took. Though things are not as horrible as the 1st day, it really shook me. I don't know how long it takes for the side effects to fade away from that just one dose but, I am keeping faith that it will be back to normal in nwxt 24-48 hours at least. Please keep me in yohr prayers! 

I have been patient with all side effects but this one has scared the shit out of me.

Thank you for your concern. Take care!🤍

@djmatera haha thanks for the clarification! That's funny, I didn't realize sorry. I'm definitely curious how my immune system will affect carrying a baby for 9 months but I'm also glad to know you guys were able to conceive. Thank you! 🙂

@judes our stories do seem similar! I just never had the dizziness. I’m so glad you are feeling better! You are brave for taking 3 shots lol I took 1 and I wont ever be touching that stuff again! I will probably have an exemption because of my pericarditis. 
I live in Canada and the only reasons you could get an exemption is if you’re allergic or have a myocarditis or pericarditis after the first dose. 

I used to workout 4x a week and I miss being active. Now I feel like a couch potato!

Im so grateful that I’m feeling better but the healing process is sooo slooow! 

Have you also experienced eye floaters? This is the worse side effect for me smh!

Hang in there! Things will get better with time 🤗

@luciablum I'm going through the exact same thing. I'm so nauseated all the time, been to E.R. 3 times, family doctor 3 times. Keep prescribing me steroids and antibiotics. When I'm out of antibiotics more then 24 hrs the symptoms come back strong. Last time they gave me steriods and let the antibiotics go for a couple days, symptoms back. So it's definitely the antibiotics helping me they aren't giving me enough for a longer time period. The rash is red, hot to touch, and very painful if you try to scratch it. I am a very healthy person besides diabetes, but that is under control. Did you ever get better? I took the Moderna,  and I agree no more vax for me. Prayers your feeling better.

@medee almost %90. It hits some days, but I can't compare it with the oldies.

Hi all, 

I’ve been a long term reader and thought I’d add my story. Got my 1st moderna on June 23rd and has been absolute hell since. Had every symptom going from head to toe. I can sense myself getting a lot better physically and mentally more importantly, but yet to have a 100% day or a day without at least one symptom flaring up or becoming an annoyance.

I’ve had the insane headaches and head pressures which come and go still, dizziness at the start, eye issues which resolved within the first month, nausea which seems to have revolved, random night chills, tingles and numbness, pins and needles, random sharp pains and many more. But which seems to be my last symptom which is becoming less of a pain but still there is chest pains and heart issues. I can’t tell if they’re linked together or they’re separate and it’s just my chest muscles. My heart rate has calmed down alot but I get constant ectopic beats or skipped beats or beats that go to fast. Saw a cardiologist who said I was having upto 8000 a day. He wasn’t too fussed and said it will calm down over time but it’s just a constant concern as it’s one of your main organs. My main concern is I want to get back into the gym and working out again which I haven’t done for nearly 5 months but don’t know wether it’s safe to do so or not. He said I can start off lightly  

But can see definite improvements in all other areas and hope this is the last symptom working it’s way out. The mental side was the hardest. Wasn’t sure wether I was going to be alive some days and the others I didn’t know if I want to be.  However them days are hopefully in the past for good and a full recovery is close.

How long has it been since you took the vax?

@maianixon I’ve been also seeming to get worse. I’m 5 months now and I’ve had it quite severe. My heart has been bad pots like symptoms inability to stand up. Bad dizziness have fainted a few times 😢 I will say my body has rejected everything put in it. I was put on amitriptyline but after 5 days it caused severe heart palpitations which stayed ever since. So just a word of warning some of the medicines have actually caused more harm to me than good. This is only my case though everyone is different just wanted to share that I’ve had bad experiences off them and caused more symptoms. I hope we get through this 🙏🙏

For heart palps, I am having great results with Hawthorne tincture (results after 2 weeks if taken daily), and eating Fresh walnuts regularly, just a few.  Between the 2, palps are WAY less severe.
