@mina I have not put on any weight but I’ve been able to stop the weight loss. Stomach problems are unfortunately still present.

Are you still taking omeprazole? I have side effects with the pills.

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! 

Coconut water for the electrolytes and lots of berries for the reservatol.

  1. Is there anyone out there that had these awful neurological (and/or heart inflammation) side effects and gotten a second dose? The University I work for has now mandated a 2nd dose and my doctor will not issue a medical exemption. I got the 1st shot Pfizer in April and it was traumatizing beyond belief and ended up in the hospital thinking I was dying because of all of these things talked about on here (spasms, internal vibrations, electrical feeling in body, legs and arms fell asleep for weeks) plus heart inflammation. I am wondering the experience of those who have gone on to get the 2nd shot? Considering getting a 2nd dose of Moderna instead. Any insight is appreciated.

Its been almost a month since you posted this. How are you feeling now? Has the electric thing and other symptoms faded away?

Hello everybody! I am in a panic, I am 3 months after 1 dose of vaccine. I experience muscle cramps, pain in the arm and shoulder from injection, dizziness, vomiting, blurred vision in the right eye, electrical discharges in the head and throughout the body. I found autoimmune antibodies after vaccination. Doctors say them a little, and they will go away, but I do not believe. I feel like I am disabled((

How did you find it out? I too have had this electric thing feeling in my head. Was it due to that? What tests have you done do far?

@medee Yes, for the most part symptoms have dissipated but defintely not 100%.  It took 2-3 months for the major issues to go away. After that, lingering issues for 4 more months. Now I have occasional slight vertigo at times and drinking alcohol and reading for too long is out of the question because it causes many of the symptoms to reappear. (The intense electrical feeling is brain in particular lasted about 2 months.) Thankfully I was able to obtain a medical exemption so do not have to get a 2nd shot at this time.

@Lynne That is curious Lynne. I’m about to get some bloods done to check inflammatory markers and hoped to get a better picture. My neurologist believes it was an inflammatory response also. Perhaps the initial reaction subsides but  the body takes a long time to recover from the shock? 

Hi, how you been feeling these days? Are you better? What were your symptoms?

Also did you or anyone here was prescribed with anti inflammatory medicines by any doctor? Did it work out? 

Please help! Has anti inflammatory medicines helped anyone?

@skazzo Yours might just be inflammatory if you only have vertigo.  If you haven't already, take 800mg ibuprofen, once a day, every day for at least 4-5 days.  Make sure you eat before you do that.  Eat bananas, cut caffeine if you drink too much coffee and try to drink at least 2-3 liters of water every day.  Take some Vitamin C and some anti-histamines just in case it's an allergic reaction.  Avoid inflammatory foods. Look for dizzyfromvaccine if your vertigo doesn't give, he tried a combination of supplements that really helped.

@andyl89 yes and no, tbh. I had chronic headaches, head pressure, and dizziness for about 4-5 months. What helped me turn the corner was a Medrol steroid pack. Botox migraine injection protocol also helped. Botox lasts for 3 months. I didn’t get 2nd Botox dose and am 6 weeks out from being Botox free. My headaches flare up around my period, this last flare was annoying, so I might get 2nd Botox dose. Better than the beginning, but flaring. Since you don’t get a period, maybe you won’t have flares. I also get weekly IV injections of 1000mg glutathione - 6 weeks now, so helpful. It’s a strong anti inflammatory. I’m almost 8mo out.

Hi all, first time reader and poster. I had the astra zentica in May, since the first week I have had various forms of dizziness, swaying, spinning, brain fog, extreme fatigue, tinnitus, fuzzy head. Sorry for asking as I am slowly working my way through the 588 pages, but what is the general consensus of things people have tried that have improved the situation? All my drs have said it's coincidental and the encouraged me to have the second dose. No way and I going anywhere near a covid vaccine or booster again, even sceptical of flu jabs now. I have had vestibular issues in the past, and also have a benine acoustic neuroma. Any help or guidance of where to start looking for a resolution will be extremely gratefully received. Many thanks in advance.

 

Hi, yes it's daunting reading through all these pages realising how many people have been affected by these jabs. We all share similar symptoms so that just can't be a coincidence. I think the general consensus is that these jabs have caused an inflammatory response although if you continue to read through, there have been different diagnosis offered by some doctors and various treatments. Personally I am trying to treat the inflammation and trying to stick with an anti-inflammatory diet, plenty of liquids and rest. It's difficult to know what to suggest you try because you have to be careful of interactions if you currently taking other medications. Hope you feel better soon.😊🙏

@aishara I would check out the FLCCC.net which is a group of doctors fighting Covid who formed an alliance. They have a protocol for post vaccine problems. In that protocol they have had success with Ivermectin and you should be able to get that over the counter in India for a very reasonable price. Your problems are caused by an inflammatory response to the vaccine. Ivermectin has anti inflammatory properties. Some other people on the forum have also taken Ivermectin so you may want to read through and see if you can find how it has worked for them. Personally I chose not to get the 2nd shot and am taking Ivermectin as a preventative  which quite possibly will protect me better than the vaccine. Ivermectin binds to the spike protein and will not let Covid enter your cell no matter what the variant. There is a major media smear campaign on Ivermectin right now but it is filled with misinformation.Good Luck

I too am from India. Has anything worked out for my fellow Indian?

Hi everyone,

It's been so great to find this forum, I'm not on social media and finding people with similar symptoms has been a huge relief. I live in Canada and got my first shot of Pfizer on May 28th. I had absolutely no reaction to it in the days that followed, just a sore arm. In just under two weeks though, I started to have episodes of imbalance and disequilibrium, coming out of absolutely nowhere. These started to get longer and a week later I was having the symptoms all day everyday. Of course, I immediately went to the ER where, like others, I was diagnosed with BPPV, given the Epley maneuver and sent home. This didn't help, and neither did the betahistine (Serc) I was prescribed. While the symptoms were their absolute worst for the first few weeks (I couldn't focus on my laptop or phone for more than a few minutes or I'd feel extremely dizzy), they stuck around well into June and July. I was shaky all day every day, unable to walk or move without feeling like I was rocking back and forth, ear fullness, and brain fog making it totally impossible to do my work as usual. The best way to describe the symptoms are floating, feeling like I'm on a boat 24/7, rocking, swaying etc., but thankfully not the classic vertigo spinning of the room. Either way though, extremely debilitating and frightening- my anxiety was so bad at first I could barely sleep through the night (I am usually an extremely deep sleeper). I'm a student in university so I had to definitely take a leave of absence since I could barely put two coherent thoughts together during the day. After many many weeks of waiting, I finally visited an ENT, who said that he could find nothing wrong with my hearing, and since I didn't have classic vertigo. He suggested I get an MRI to rule out anything brain related, which of course, is a terrifying thing to hear. Since everything medical takes SO SO long in Canada, I decided to go back home (I live in India) to get some tests done and see some specialists.

During all of this, my symptoms- which had really begun to subside- flared up exactly a week after my second shot at the end of July. At first, I hadn't made the connection to the vaccine, and was completely shocked at the intensity with which my dizziness had returned. Once I returned to India, I visited my family physician, an ENT and got an MRI (which thankfully came back normal), in a week's time. I have been taking allergy pills on the regular since they showed up extremely high on my blood-work. After many many days of extreme worry and depression (I've been feeling like my life is totally over), the symptoms are very very slowly abating. I've been praying that things go back to normal soon. This whole experience has been really scary, and the lack of knowledge about vaccine side effects among all the doctors I've seen has only added to my worries. It's a lonely experience, and reading all of your posts here has really helped ease my mind.

 

Did corticosteroids help anyone else with their symptoms? I've seen a number of people mention it on this forum- does it work if you have mal de debarquement-esque symptoms rather than full on classic vertigo? Has anyone else's symptoms lasted for almost 3 months?

 

Hi Aisha, how are you feeling these days? Were you able to get the help you need from doctors? I have been havinga tough time with these symptoms too. 

I hope you're feeling better now. I have been to a lot of doctors in India and I know the feeling when they make you sound like you're crazy. 

Have you tried any anti inflammatory medicines? Has it worked for you? 

Are you 100% back to your previous self?

@medee My vertigo has not come back and I still have not taken the 2nd shot for fear of a reaction. I am still taking Ivermectin as a phophylaxis twice a week according to the FLCCC protocol. Today I just found out about the new variant and Ivermectin is supposed to work against all variants. I am having a hard time getting Ivermectin in the US so I ordered some from India. It was shipped EMS Speed Post. It has been 4 weeks now and it still has not arrived. The tracking only shows the first 3 days since it was shipped. I have read that this is common and that tracking in India often never shows more than the first few days even after the package gets delivered. Is this your experience? Have your problems resolved at all?

@mina Yes I am still on omeprazole daily. Without it I will have bad nausea and excess stomach acid. Not sure if it will work for everyone but it seems to help me

@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 !!

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.

Sorry for the delay. My kids are at home this week so We are running around. I promise to respond later this evening. I will not forget you. Feel free to text me as well at 832-638-5091. It will be easier because I can send you more information that way ❤️
