@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. 

How are you feeling now?

Since my palpitations began after the side effects of the medicine, I had to visit a Cardio as I also developed some chest pain. 

My palpitations were throughout not jist at night. On the 5th day, I visited the Cardio. He checked my BP and heart rate. My heart rate was a bit high and prescribed a tablet for it. Asked me to take for 5 days. 

Though my palpitations went back to normal in the day, it continued in the night time with nighmateres that other here have been talking about. I didn’t face this nightmare issue before it. 

Now the 5 days medication course is over. I still can't sleep at night due to my palpitations and nightmares. I don't feel like visiting anymore doctors as they put it on anxiety.

He had also given me a tablet for acidity, which I took on the 1sr day and started getting head pulsation also at night. So i stopped it. And a tablet was prescribed for anxiety which I did not take at all.

How have you been doing since your last post? Were there are relapses? I hope mine goes back to normal just as yours. Please help me!

@mina Hi Mina, I had really bad palpitations that started several hours after the 1st dose and heart pain. At some point after getting tired I got irregular heart rhythm too. I started taking NAC+Zinc and it gradually became better. It's either a coincidence or maybe palpitations were caused by inflammation so these anti-inflammatory supplements helped. 

NAC + Zinc are anti inflammatory tablets? Do we require doctors prescription for this? I too have palpitations on and off.

Didn't have it initially but began after a dide effect of a tablet the neuro prescribed. 

Pls help. Would Omega 3 fish oil or Omega 3 Cod liver oil tablets help? Which one is better?

My palpitations started after the vaccine so could be because of inflammation of some sort.

Did you take beta blockers? Several years ago I had an irregular heart rhythm as a side effect after just one pill so I avoid them. It got better with time. I just took natural sedatives (like mint, valerian root etc) to calm down the nervous system.

NAC and Zinc are supplements so no prescription. They are antioxidants and improve immunity. You can read about them (in relation with covid too).

Yes, I was on beta blockers for 5 days as prescribed by the Cardio. However, now the palpitations continue at night. Days were better.

I went to the Neuro for checking my nerves as I had some muscle tremors, tingling and nerve pain. He stated my nerves seem fine after physical examination and then prescribed me a tablet which on looking it up online was a tablet prescribed for nerve pai and was an anti depressant too.

If it wasn't used for nerve pain, I wouldn't have taken it but since it said used for nerve pain too, I took 1 and the same night I thought I will not make it alive. I had very high palpitations which did not subside at all though the rate was a bit less. So I had to see a Cardio as I had some chest pain as well.

Today was the 1st day without the beta blockers as yesterday was the 5th day. 

I am scared of sleeping at night as it wakes me up. And also started getting nightmares since the palpitations began. I guess my body could not take the medication post the jab especially since it caused more damage.

I am thinking of starting Omega 3 fish oil supplements for now. Hope it helps. Though I don't know if it will help in normalizing the heart rate.

Very worrying seeing all these fit healthy sports athletes having heart and chest pains now whilst playing. Happening most weekends now especially in the football here in the uk/europe with players and a lot of supporters falling ill with cardiac issues.
All these people that will counter any talk of it being the vaccine are very strange. “It’s always happened”. Not at this rate it hasn’t. It doesn’t make anyone anti vax by just stating the obvious and connecting the dots. They’re clearly people that haven’t suffered luckily. 
Just hopefully the more this is happening on the TV it raises alot more concern and investigation

@medee Omega 3 is always good. What helped me to sleep during palpitations was valerian root (it's quite powerful), mint and also oolong tea. They were quite effective for me.

I am at a loss.

I'm 6 months post vaccine.

Right now, I have my entire nervous system buzzing.  I cannot sleep.  

For some reason, certain foods now trigger this such as pizza with heavy crust and bread.  I just got a celiac test done.  We'll see what happens.

But, I tried stopping gluten for a week and it only made things worse (although even if you have celiac if you stop gluten you can go through big withdrawals).

But beans have also affected me as well now.

The nerve across my stomach is where this vaccine injury all began for me.  I used to be able to control it more with Ivermectin and Pepcid (for bloating after this vaccine), etc. but these things don't seem to do much now.

I do not think I am getting worse but this is sure getting old.

Thank you.

Has anyone tried pine needle tea?  Where should I buy it?

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.

 

How are you feeling these days?

Do use the QUOTE option wheb you respond. Take care.

Hi thanks for asking. Not great actually. I'm about 4 weeks out from my 2nd shot. My main things are the anxiety, GI issues, fatigue, head pressure, dizziness, and particularly the insomnia. I started melotonin last night which hopefully will help. Also deep breathing before I sleep seems to help too..  still not taking any medication because my body is so sensitive. 

What's interesting is my kid and spouse went away for a few months last week so I got a emotional when they left and also had to deal with living alone which actually exasperated all my symptoms. So I moved in with my parents for now... 

The main thing is to try and stay busy and positive. Keep believing we will be alright In a few months. And to eat well even though you got no appetite and get nauseaus. I'm on the fence about exercise. Because on one hand it seems to make my symptoms worse, but on the other I think it might help with the insomnia... Not sure tho. I just take very brief walks.. 

How are you??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What GI issues do you have?  My nerve across my stomach hurts.  Further, I was very bloated after the shot.  What foods make you worse?  For me, beans make me worse and big crust pizza.

@garfybrown Thank you; that means a lot. I wish this was a medically-recognized injury - not only because we would receive treatment, but also because we would be eligible for disability payments. I work in a fast-paced medical clinic as a receptionist and it's difficult to act "normal" when I feel like the left side of my body is vibrating or when I'm experiencing extreme brain fog or when I am flat-out exhausted. I'm having to take some days an hour at a time, white-knuckling my way through each minute, waiting anxiously to go home. 

Ironically, I help hundreds of patients sign up for their first/second/booster doses each week. I always wonder if any of these people experienced the same symptoms we've been experiencing - and if they're keeping quiet, too, because they know they won't be believed or heard. The most difficult is checking young children in for their first doses. I feel sick doing so; I would hate for a five-year old to go through all of this. 

Anyways, thank you for your reply. I'm always here to listen, too, as we all try to survive this thing..

@tabby so the explanation is that the vaccine sometimes causes an autoimmune response. The body is responding to something in your system and when attacking , it also affects other areas. Also, it causes inflammation in others. When I went to see all the specialists they refused to believe that it was caused by the vaccine , but they looked at the symptoms and tried to treat them. Cardiologist said that I had an ANS syndrome, and gave me medication for my fast heart rate. My heart rate eventually slowed down so I didn’t need the medication( like I said, everything is temporary.. you treat the problem temporarily until it’s gone ). Neurologists couldn’t find anything. No nerve damage. The pins and needle feeling subsided. Brain fog was the most annoying thing. I started taking all the vitamins and ate clean. I also started taking  lexapro to reduce the anxiety and the brain fog. Loved it. You guys should take it. 10 mg every day. Eyes. I took steroids by mouth and eye drops. The explanation- inflammation. Bottom line- side effects from the vaccine. Most doctors will deny it but I found a doctor that understand the vaccine and he was open about it. 

What will help nerve problems?

@dan1878 I cannot understand people who blindly defend this vaccine against ALL evidence presented to them. No, healthy teenagers and young adults do not just fall down and experience cardiac arrest out of nowhere. No, nervous and vestibular system damage do not occur out of nowhere. The level of denial about this vaccine has gotten ridiculous. I'm sure the FDA and CDC love people like this. As long as there are people defending the vaccine against all odds, the truth won't have a chance to come out.

@rainyday it’s crazy isn’t it. People are acting so oblivious to the obvious. It can’t be defended at the rate people young healthy people are getting seriously ill at

Perhaps a glimmer of hope on the horizon for those who had bad side effects after the first vaccine and are still thinking to get a second vax.

Novavax looks set to be authorised for use in the UK. Trials done in the Royal Free hospital London suggest that this traditional vaccine is safer for children and has much less side effects while giving protection at 96% here's the link from today's news:
