@mina i went to have an abdominal ct scan and long story short I had a huge problem. Afterwards i was unable to digest anything. I am now taking omeprazole and carafate just to be able to eat bland foods. I have an endoscopy next week. This has been a nightmare. 

Sorry to hear about that @hopetofeelbetter what did the CT scan reveal? I along with others on here have been suffering from abdominal issues since the vax. While mine have not been as bad as some of the others on here I would be interested to know what's causing all this after the vaccines. I wish you luck with your endoscopy next week. 🙏

@medee I wrote about my experience on the page 374. My whole experience lasted approximately 3 months. When I though that I am already fine, I relapsed. The symptoms that lasted longest were heart palpitations during night. I could not sleep well because of that. But everything slowly went away. Now I am about 3 months without relapse and back to my normal. 

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.

I did not take any medication specifically for the heart palpitations. Only magnesium. I let it subside. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and was not able to fall asleep. I had to wait hour or two while it went away and I was able to fall asleep again. I bought blood pressure monitor and when I felt palpitations I measured my BP and pulse. My BP was normal and pulse rate was only slightly increased. It helped me to calm down a little bit. Then my heart palpitations started to be less frequent and finally went away. Thanks god. 🙏 

How long did it take to calm down. Mine began post taking an anti depressant tablet. I have developed chest pain and palpitations too. It has been 4 days still the palpitations haven't subsided. It is almost continuous.

It took around 3 months. Palpitations were not constant. Mostly occuring during night (strong heart beat and pulsation in the head). Now when it is gone I feel the real difference. I do not want to experience it again.

Hello,

just thought I would post on here again. I was on this forum back in March so I got my vaccine pretty early and assumed there would be many many more people on this forum as the months went on. Judging by the fact that there is now 600+ pages seems I was right. Anyways…

I had all the usual symptoms; extreme brain fog, ear pain, headaches, and loads of other things. The brain fog was debilitating had to stop working, had to move across the country so I could live w my parents, couldn’t go outside, could barely go into public. Walking my dog was a struggle in itself. Things got especially bad after my second vaccine. You can see my experiences in my earlier posts, but just here to say as of today (First vaccine: March 21 Second vaccine: April 18th) I am fully recovered. I’ve been back at work for about 2 months(was still middle struggling with it) and as of about a week ago I’m back in college, working, have even gotten back into dating, been to concerts, go out regularly without the anxiety of the brain fog weighing on me. Truth be told I hardly think about it much anymore.

@wynnwolter did you ever have ear ringing caused by the ear pressure/pain? Did it go away? Thanks for posting your updates.

Hello. Does anyone still have insomnia after 4 months? Also is anyone here experiencing neurological and visual issues like visual snow and migraine aura? I am just hoping it will go away with time. 

I haven't had the insomnia but I'm four months out from my first Pfizer vaccine and I'm dealing with visual disturbances including snow/static and constant low grade headache that makes me feel dizzy and nauseous. I'm awaiting to see a neurologist.

Pineapple is anti inflammatory and good for the eyes and joints. I've been eating lots since my Pfizer vaccine nightmare began.

These are all known reactions, reported to VAERS; I find that too hard to navigate, so I use this site to see vaccine reactions by brand; https://www.ehealthme.com/covid-vaccine-list/  

Choose the jab you had, scroll down and see all the reactions reported, breathe deeply, not easy to see.   This aspect of the site if free, but it is a commmercial site that sells other analysis. 

You are so not alone in your reactions, especially when you consider that 1%-10% (depending on who you ask) of problems even get reported, so the numbers are understood to be underreported. 

Personally, my partner had very severe vision issues that caused her to get a full eye exam.  She called it WAVY VISION and it came with a headnband type headache that was unlike what she had ever had before.  Nothing was found, and the wavy vision has subsided, but it was very scary for her. 

RE treatments, the Long Haul Covid treatments at FLCCC alliance are also used for vaccine injuries, here at https://covid19criticalcare.com/covid-19-protocols/i-recover-protocol/     again scroll down to a 3 page pdf for patients.

That site is full of good info and treatements, full of other protocols and info for your doctor treating Covid.    Best

Hey there. How long did your partner suffer from the wavy vision. I've been dealing with wobbling vision. @thenystagmus very helpfully posted that they had been dealing with the condition oscillioscopia and when I read up on it, it's the best match I can find for what I'm experiencing with my eyes which my doctor's couldn't find anything wrong with.

I've experienced this twice since my vaccine. The first time began about 4-5 weeks after the vax and lasted about a fortnight. This current episode started about 10 weeks out and has been going on nearly 4 weeks I think it's also making me feel mildly nauseous. I've too have got the headband headache you describe. Both incidents started when I came down with a cold. It's been such a tiring time.

oscillioscopia...ie wavy vision....thanks, we will read up...there are things that come to mind to reduce any pressures in the head, breathing in sage tea or sage and say euclaliptus tea or real bay leaf added...for any cold really...or sinus....

     i remember there are also the mention of histamine blockers for covid and vaccine injury, again to try to keep things not congested..please read up on good old aspirin, or willow tree extracts, tinctures....as well....I have heard some pro and some con on aspirin, as perhaps it is helpful post vaccine but not necessarily (contraindicated) for covid....will try to research and update that...

@thenystagmus I am so glad to hear that you are almost fully recovered.  I am about 50% better since February.  I attribute it to the electro-acupuncture that I have done, but I think I have reached the maximum benefit from this therapy.  I guess I should give PT a shot again. Thanks for your update.  It gives me hope.

Hi 

Ive been following this forum since June after I got my 1st Pfizer shot. It has been a struggle and I feel for everyone going through this. After my 1st shot, I just got a sore arm for a few days. Then I went for a run a week later and I got dizziness, lightheaded, and nauseas. I didn't think anything of it as I was healthy before. Then about a few days later I started get a sour and burning feeling in my stomach. I also got fatigued more while working my office job. Shortly after I had terrible back of neck stiffness and pressure and the vertigo/dizziness (feeling of being on a boat kicked in). A few days after I started getting panic attacks and anxiety. I also couldn't exercise let alone walk without my symptoms flaring up and getting extremely fatigued. Not to mention the next day my symptoms would get worse. All of these symptoms (particularly the head pressure and dizzneness) has persisted. I had to get my 2nd shot late October due to my employer mandate. 

I had all the listed side effects for the 1st week: i.e. headaches, dizziness, fatigue, tiredness, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea , nausea. My diarrhea and nausea and various other GI symptoms have persisted. I also got light sensitivity, sensitivity to crowded places and movement, ear pressure/clogging, and nose pressure/clogging. My head pressure and dizziness since the 1st vaccine worsened. However, and rather ironically, these side effects I have been able to just manage and live with... The worst thing to deal with is the anxiety, panic attacks, and fatigue. For the fatigue, even stuff like walking, reading a book, and talking make me out of breath and fatigued and cause my symptoms to flare. The anxiety is debilitating and not only prevents me from doing everyday things due to a fear of my symptoms relapsing , but having anxiety in itself make my symptoms worse. It's kind of a self fulfilling prophecy. I also developed insomnia which makes it hard to go to sleep. I have these heart palpitations everytime Im about to nod off. Sometimes this creates a panic situation and I feel like passing out and lightheaded  so I have to get up and calm myself down before trying to fall asleep again, which I eventually do but it's a terrible sleep. 

In terms of medications , I haven't taking any. Perhaps due to my GI issues , which is really sensitive and I get diarrhea and GERD often , I can tolerate medication well. I get bad side effects. So I just take omega 3 and vitamin c and calcium vit d. I took probiotics but for some reason it made my anxiety worse. I had IBS before this vaccine, and I have a really weak gut system.i can't help but assume this is related because a poor gut could mean poor immune system and also it affects mental health...

From my discussions with my GP, my symptoms are very similar to long covid... And I think this has to do something with my nervous system. Maybe it's inflamed, or over stimulated , or something else...who knows. Not even the docs know....

I do want to end with hope. After about 3 months from my 1st vaccine, many of my side effects calmed down such as the anxiety and fatigue. I was even able to exercise, albeit lightly. The only thing that sort of persisted without change was this inner head pressure (like in the center of my head and spinal cord) and if I stay still or even move my head I get dizzy. 

Of course I was kind of coerced into the 2nd dose, and it's been a rough 3 weeks so far. But I know that in a few months or maybe weeks things will get better. 

Im hearing that the more shots you get the more severe the reaction. So if the booster gets mandated, Im not getting it.
