@chelsun did you recover from all of your side effects? We’re you having dizziness, numbness, tingling in limbs too?

@rainyday I agree it is criminal. This whole situation with Covid is crimes against humanity in my opinion. I had a normal head CT too. I asked core steroids in the first couple of days after getting symptoms but still haven’t gotten anyone to give them and I’m 12 weeks out from my one and only shot

I am almost 6 months in family dr still blows it over as stress. Even doesn't have to blame the vaccine, but instead, not leave me broken. I have as many people here the vertigo, eye issue, internal tremors, high blood pressure, I can't support my head. 6 months in post vaccine and I'm heart broken. I'm loosing hope.

@chelsun I’m so glad to hear that you too have recovered. I think it will be great to give a detailed information to all of our brothers and sisters on this forum about what helped and what didn’t so that they will know what to do. They need the assurance that we were looking for when we were in their spot. Sending everyone lots of love and warm hugs. You will all beat this! I know it! If we did, you will too. Patience and positive mine set is the name of the game, including good diet and some medications in case of inflammation or anxiety. We are giving you all the information that we have as survivors. Use it. Learn from our journey. Soon you will be survivors too. And when you reach that point, provide the same helping hand to others, Pay it forward, Until there will be nobody left suffering on this forum! . ❤️ Moran

@jkro I recovered from all my symptoms. I did have numbness in my legs, that seemed to be one of the first symptoms to clear up.

@smileyoer wanted to comment on your question re: Boosters. I saw an immunologist this past week to inquire abiyt getting a booster. After a very informative discussion he has advised me not to a booster, fearing  similar reaction or worse. I will be getting a 2nd opinion on this concern.

@jeank Interesting about Sertraline for you.  Please what were/are your symptoms?

I've experienced vertigo, tinnitus, blurred and double vision, insomnia, malaise, fatigue, hypokalemia, high cortisol level, heart palpitations, weight loss, nausea, anxiety and panic attacks, brain fog, body tremors, paraesthesia. This should cover 90% of what I've suffered through. 

In terms of tests, they've conducted: brain MRI and MRA, abdominal ultrasound, colonoscopy, stool analysis, 24h BP monitoring, ECG, echocardiogram, chest X-ray, thyroid and liver tests, various hemograms.

Treatments I've tried so far: vitamins (B, C, D), fish oil, minerals (zinc, selenium, magnesium), ginkgo biloba, Q10, sertraline, acupuncture, psychotherapy, RTT, bioenergetic sessions.

It's been 136 days since symptoms onset and let's say that I'm around 70-75 % better or back to normal (the percentage would be higher if not for anxiety prompting a myriad of unwanted sensations).

Thank you for your answer. Meanwhile I got the booster but now Pfizer instead of Sputnik V.

My opinion that after the shot my symptoms ease with time, but I think getting the covid will be worse than this. In my opinion who got these terrible effects means that we are more sensitive to the virus itself.

I got it 2 days ago, the reactions after were much much softer than before. 

After Sputnik I got terrible ear pressure a day after the shot. I also feel some ear pressure but it is quite unnoticeable.

Hopefully I won't get worse 😅

@judes how did it go with your doctor appointment? Where they able to help you. My journey has been up and down today is a hard day. I got an awful episode after doing my VRT physical therapy exercises that threw me over my threshold and now I’m dealing with extreme dizziness. I never know what to expect everyday is different with new symptoms. I’m still having all my symptoms pretty consistently. A lot of peripheral sensitivity, ear ringing and sensitivity to light. I also only left one lightbulb in my bathroom and am still avoiding mirrors

@medee I am here to give EVERYONE an update after 6 months of COMPLETE suffering for those who are looking for hope and are suffering, wondering if it will ever end. YES. I didn’t believe it also when I was dealing with all of this. But there is an end to the suffering. I went through so much, I have seen 3 neurologists, 7 ophthalmologists, 1 infectious disease specialist, 2 cardiologists, 2 family doctors, 2 Nuro ophthalmologists, had 6 MRI’s, went twice to the ER… my heart rate was fast, my eyesight was bad, serious brain fog and cognitive issues, pins and niddle feeling in my legs, back pain , and buzzing in my ears. Spent so much money on tests and was on a death bed mentally. There were times that I was suicidal. Thought that my life was over. Couldn’t take care of my kids. Panic attacks brought me to the darkest moments of my life. I didn’t want to be left alone for even a second. All I wanted and prayed for was to be able to leave a normal life. My mom had to fly from Israel to help me and my family. She kept telling me to be positive but it was hard because I just didn’t think that it would ever end. I have to tell you - if you are going through the same thing, know that this is temporary. I promise you. It is. Try to stay positive. 
here are the things that helped me :
steroids ( I took prednisone to treat inflammation in my body as soon as I started having severe symptoms). Total of 600 mg 

Vitamin D 

bitamin c and iron ( if you are lacking energy you need to check your ferritin level. Mine was 2 when it needs to be 50 because vaccine wiped out my iron storage. You can become anemic because of that. 
magnesium 

omega 3 

Ivermectin 

Strict diet- only proteins, greens, no sugars, no gluten , no alcohol, no dairy… lots of fluids. 
lots of ginger, garlic, lemon( I actually made a paste out of it and took a spoon 3 times daily ) 

make sure to have support around you and remind yourself that this is temporary and that you have to stay calm and positive. You will come out on the other side, and when you do, you will be a different person. 
you will not complain about things that are unimportant 

you will appreciate the smallest things 

you will learn who is worth your time and who wouldn’t 

you will know who are your real friends 

you will be stronger than you were before and you will relearn faith! 
 
keep on fighting, and keep a positive mind set , because your subconscious is a powerful tool, use it ! 
I promise you - I was one of you just few weeks ago… just ride it, knowing that this is just a part of your journey, and there is a reason why this happened to you… 

wishing all of you a speedy recovery ! 
if you need support , here is my number , 

I will try and help as much as I can ! 
you can do this!!!! You will win !!

Moran 832-638-5091 

Thank you! I have been down last night and didn't think I would be able to make it or handle this for long.

I am on medication to control my heart rate but anything fearful or any emotions is leqding to a high heart rate. Today is the kast day of the medication couse.

I had a normal heart rate but a medication given to me by a neuro messed it up and I ended having issues. Last night I had a bad nerve pull sort of pain in my chest for a while. I don't know what is it. My nerves pain at times, pins and needles (rare), muscle twitching and tremors and heart issue.

May I know all these tests that you did, did thw reports come back to normal? These supplements and tablets were prescribed by the doctor or is it self medication?

I am really scared for life. I am the only earning member and really worried about how things have turned out after the vax. 

Please help me!

Hi. I’m sorry that you are going through this. I know that it’s difficult. I just recently started to feel better. It’s been going on since the end of may. First. How long ago did you have the vaccine? Which vaccine did you get? 1 or 2 shots?  Also- are you on a specific diet? What medication are you taking ? About me. Neuro did EEG , EMG , I did ANS test with my cardiologist, stress test, ultrasound of the heart EKG, lots of blood work. Ferritin  level is important , you need to check for clots( d dimer)… I can look for the whole blood work list and send it to you later. Everything came back normal. The heart rate was elevated to they gave me medication for it. Eventually the heart rate just got better. No. I didn’t do this completely on my own. I had a doctor who helped me. He put me on steroids ( because I had gritty feeling in my eyes… possibly inflammation ). You have to understand. A lot of doctors just deny that the vaccine causes problems. I had to go to 6 ophthalmologists who told me that everything was normal until I found one who was willing to listen and help. You need to find a doctor who is knowledgeable and believes in those injuries. Steroids are probably not for you because they will increase your heart rate and blood pressure. I suggest a strict diet. GARLIC. very important. My mom had inflammation of the heart muscle. She got rid of it by eating tons of raw garlic. A week later the cardiologist was amazed that the inflammation was gone. Take bread with some sour cream and some vegetable ( you don’t want it to burn your stomach so you need to add stuff). Put ad 4 cloves of garlic insides ( you can chop them or mince them )l. Eat the bread with the raw garlic. Every morning. Make a soup. Put a lot of tumeric and fresh garlic before drinking IT. Lots of greens. Make smoothie. Listen. I know that you are scared. I woke up for the past 6 months screaming and crying every day. First I was full of regret for doing the vaccine. Then I was full of anger wondering why it happened to me. Then I calmed down and tried to stay positive and brainwashed myself that it will pass. Then again I was full of regret , anger etc. the cycle goes on and on and on. The only thing I wanted to talk about was vaccine.  I was going crazy. Couldn’t bear the feeling anymore. Told everyone that I was done with life …. Believe me.  I know it’s hard. BUT…. The truth is …. It was meant to happen. I have a friend who didn’t do the vaccine, and nearly died. He was left with scars in his lungs and he is a very healthy person who had COVID before. So know that doing the vaccine, it may have injured you TEMPORARILY, but it could save your life if you get COVID. So no regret. You couldn’t know. Most people don’t get hurt from the vaccine. I asked EVERYONE around me if they had side effects ( I was so obsessed with those issues that I would ask every stranger I met if they did the vaccine and if they got hurt). I didn’t find even ONE person who got injured . I was the only one in my circle. So don’t regret. For one reason or another it was meant to happen. Maybe if you didn’t get the vaccine you would have died from covid. Believe that it was for the best ( and I don’t say it lightly because I had hard time with faith during that time but learned that along the way). Don’t be angry , just embrace it and be touch. It’s your time to show yourself what you are made of. You are not alone. And this WILL GO AWEY. I promise you. Patience is the key word. Words that helped me were “ this is not who you are permanently. It’s just who you are now. Before you know it, it will be behind you. “. Find things that make you happy. Put music, dance , laugh. You have your family. You have so much to be happy about. Remember that. Please answer my questions and don’t worry. I will try to guide you as much as I can. But remember- the power is inside of you. YOU WILL WIN 

It was my 1st dose of AstraZeneca. It is named Covishield in India. Date: 9th October.

I am almost 1.5 months post my 1st jab. I don't plan to take the 2nd jab. I am trying anti inflammatory foods as much as I can.

Oranges and green tea is what I have added to my diet and have tried to cut down on inflammatory foods. Mine is mostly Veg and chicken sometimes.

- Rice 

- Rotis (Indian flat bread. Its not the same as the regular bread)

- Veggies

- Curries

- Tender coconut water

- Green tea

- Oranges and banana 

- Chicken and chicken broth (sometimes)

 

These are the most things that I have almost regularly. 

I don't eat sweets, packaged food, foods with added preservatives, dairy foods, red meat, and no tea and coffee or beverages, breads etc.

Is this good enough? Anything else that I can include in my diet or exclude from it?

I am not on any medication except for Vitamin D tablets once a week. Wanted to ask if Omega 3 fish oils tablets really work or not? What are the supplements I can take on my own without doctor's prescription?

I was planning to start Omega 3 but is it helpful and does it really reduce inflammation?

 

- I was taking B12 tablets in the past since I was deficient on it. Not taking it anymore 

- Was on some medication for my ears and chest but at the moment not on any

 

SYMPTOMS SO FAR:

Tinnitus and ear pain (on and off), pins and needles (not anymore), muscle tremors, nerves pain, crawling feeling in my skin (currently have it on my head), chest pain (Had initially post the jab and then it went away. Came back after I took a tablet given to me for nerve pain which was an anti depressant too🥲), chest discomfort, some odd feeling in my head, some electric feeling in my head (Happened 2-3 times until now) muscle weakness (esp. in my left leg just above my knee) insomnia and anxiety I can't put it in words, palpitations (started after a side effect of a tablet a neuro prescribed but post that heart rate has been odd) Had an odd nerve pull with pain last night in the left side of my chest. It happened only once but not sure what it was.

 

TESTS DONE:

- Basic blood tests

- Blood tests for Cholesterol, Thyroid, Vitamin B12 and D. Was only deficienct on D per reports

- Ear examination (All good per the ENT)

- BP and Pulse rate (Pulse rate was high post side effect of a tablet)

- Physical nerve and muscle examination (Normal as per Neuro)

- ECG (Normal per Cardio. Had to do this test post the chest pain and palpitations that begun post the intake of the tablet. He said chest pain is due to anxiety which I don't wanna believe at all)

I am scared of doing any more tests. 

Please help me what supplements, food and fluids can help in reducing inflammation and what food can I try.

Or anything else that can help.

P.S: I'm an Indian so our food usually has a turmeric, ginger and garlic in everyday food. 

Can't wait to go back to my self.

Please use QUOTE option when anyone of you reply to my msg. Thanks!

@myadan I have responded to your questions above - How long ago did you have the vaccine? Which vaccine did you get? 1 or 2 shots?  Also- are you on a specific diet? What medication are you taking ? 

Will wait for you response. Thank you and take care.

I've recently read several posts from people saying that NAC helped them to feel better. Which brand of NAC works best? I'm currently taking Vital Nutrients' BCQ supplement and it has helped immensely - so much so that I become anxious when I start running out. I must take 6-8 per day, though, and while it's helped considerably, the inflammation is still there. 

I'm also taking a multivitamin, CoQ10, and Vitamin D - along with a lot of pineapple juice, orange juice (for vitamin C), grape juice (for vitamin C and heart health), water, and a diet low in refined sugar and dairy. 

My last big flare occured during my cycle, and I'm trying to prepare as much as possible for the next flare. I'm hoping NAC might help. Any other suggestions would be appreciated as well!

@nath7 One more thing: Regarding your burning sensations/nerve pain, there are prescription medications that can help with nerve pain and I'd talk to your doctor about that. They likely won't help with the numbness but if you are feeling a lot of pain/discomfort, medications like Gabapentin, can possibly help with that. I would talk to a neurologist about what medications might be right for you, though, because every medication has potential side effects. Considering the various issues you're having, I'd want to make sure that any medications would not worsen some of your symptoms while helping eliminate other symptoms.

@nath7 has anything worked out for your nerves? Do you have any other symptoms apart from nerves pain?
