@sickofthis there are a number of viruses that can infect the vestibular nerve.  They did not confirm mine but after consulting with docs that was the conclusion we came too.  You can’t really test the vestibular nerve for anything so that is why this is so difficult to figure out.  But I think the fact that the c19 vaccine takes your immune system down hard during the 2 week period that it makes sense something lying dormant could attack the nerve.  Inner ear issues can cause so many weird symptoms. Honestly I felt like I had recovered from a stroke. But I would say I’m 95% better.  I have reactions to any type of stimulant like coffee and alcohol and even the benzos. I have been prescribed.  A full nights sleep is extremely important as well. I hope I am making sense.

@jaydev55 I still have days where I have a slight dizziness like I’m on the edge of falling, but haven’t had vertigo since my initial. My left ear occasionally feels full. Pain and pressure in my head. I get tired easy.  I occasionally have tinnitus.  And occasionally derealization.  I was so sick the first 6 months.  I didn’t get a diagnosis until I was 5 months into this. It’s been 3 years this month that this started.

Does anyone feel like their joints are weaker? All my joints make way more popping sounds than they ever did before, even twisting my wrist makes it go crack and pop. Almost every joint has been doing this for the past 2-3 months. I also get sharp pains over my entire body at times. Makes me go crazy because all these symptoms seem to come and go every week. For two-three days I am completely fine and then they return

Hi everyone,

 

I came to give an update. My some of symptoms came back yesterday. I woke up in the morning and the room was moving again. I felt nauseous in and out all day. I quickly went to have a rapid test and a PCR test. My rapid test was negative but I’m waiting on the PCR. 

i also asked for an antibody test to see if I even still have any from my first and only dose back in February, of the Pfizer vaccine. I went to a neurologist who is now sending me for labs, a special ophthalmologist visit, and a MRI. She suspects it’s benign myasthenia graves. She said it looked like my eyes were dropping. Did some type of neurological test and found that I was slightly week in terms of movement. I told her the last time I ever had this was following the vaccine. I haven’t been sleep properly. Waking up at all hours…like right now at 1:48am.

She kept telling me I’ve probably always had it. But my father took the vaccine the same day I did and became entirely weak on one side of his body. He got better though, but also decided to stick with one dose. He’s 75 and I’m 33. We have both never had such things. Im trying to stay calm. 

So again, I’m not sure if anyone is seeing this.

But this is my latest update- 10 months post the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. 

For anyone in a similar situation, please look out for this this.

@soraya It is scary to have these symptoms come back after 10 months. I am so sorry. I hope this is just a short-lived relapse for you and any others that it happens to. Well, I am nearing 9 months since one and only Moderna and other than the insomnia issue that has almost resolved, I am still battline the tinnitus and floaters. It is a struggle trying to ignore both. I keep hoping that it will get better with time though. Who knows when.

@saba Hi Saba. I am so frightened. I am about to undergo more neurological tests tomorrow. I am just completely shocked it’s come back out of nowhere.

You only had one dose of Moderna? And still seeing side effects after 9 months? What have specialists told you?

Thank you for the information. I couldn't even begin to imagine what kind of virus it could be if that were the case. Did your doctor say it will pass with time? Everything I have read about vestibular neuritis said it typically resolves in 3ish weeks (or up to a couple months). Its great that you are feeling 95% better!! Oh how I miss drinking coffee, I also cant even have a sip now.

@soraya Yes only one dose of Moderna. PCP helped with the insomnia issues with meds. Understands that it could be vaccine and gave me an exepmtion for any additional doses, thanfully. One ENT blew me off, another one said he had seen tinnitus in others from vax, but nothing to offer. 2 Opthalmologists visits, both said floaters are just from ageing and just told me to ingore it. Saw a retina specialist said retina is fine so nothing to worry! Neuorologist that I saw found all of this interesting, he was a migraine/vestibular issues specialits and he didn't see any issues with my vestibular system or anything related to migraines. He wanted to prescribe me anti-depressants which I declined.  Bottom line is no one, absolutely no one, has any answers or recommendations. If our issues are similar to those are covidlonghaulers, it may take a long time. I am seeing people report recoveries 18 months after.

@sara90 Your doctor, by contrast, needs to spend more time online and research what is actually happening to people. It IS absurd for a cardiologist to suggest you take the second dose after pericarditis. I mean, seriously? I'm aghast these people have doctorates. 

There was a woman who came to my workplace - shortly after the vaccines began being administered - who developed pericarditis after the first injection. She was wearing a heart monitor and had been "cleared" by her cardiologist to receive the second dose. She said, "I hope it doesn't happen again!" I was floored that anyone would attempt a second dose after that experience - but even more floored that a reputable cardiologist would sign off on it! 

I agree, this whole experience has been a joke. I will never trust the government or a vaccine ever again. 
I had to force this cardiologist to give me an exemption and mind you, I’m eligible because of the pericarditis. He is so pro-vaccine that he doesn’t want to hear about the adverse reactions. 
The fact that some people who had adverse reactions to the dose and are going back for the second and third is beyond me.

@sara90 Well, it goes to show you how much faith people put in their providers and specialists. If the provider says "jump", many will - because this person is supposed to be looking out for their best interest.

Physicians hold such an important role and have so much power over the patients they treat. Recommending that a vaccine-injured patient with heart damage receive a second dose is a gross misuse of that power and grounds for losing a medical license, in my opinion.

It doesn’t seem like we can get Nasalcrom in Aus. Can anyone familiar tell me whether this is similar?

No, they are different.

The product you link to is Mometasone furoate (a steroid).

Nasalcrome is a mast cell stabiliser (I think the active is cromoglicic acid, also known as cromoglycate).

I've tried Fexofenadine hydrochloride (which is an H1 antihistamine) with no effect evident.

@sickofthis actually it can take years for symptoms to get better. I have done so much research. I had to as most docs couldn’t help.  I saw 3 different doctors, the 3rd was a charm. 2 ENTs had ct scans, mri and went to physical therapy because the VN caused me to have bppv.  It gets better when your vestibular system finally adjusts to having the loss of function in 1. I was told it’s like when a plane loses an engine on one side and the pilot has to make adjustments for the plane to level out.  There is some good information on this website about different kinds of disorders.  Best wishes

Hey everyone,

I got the booster more than 1 week ago. Still feeling okay. 

Actually I still have some lingering symptoms from April. I got mild headaches, and insomnia sometimes. I also have some dizziness when I don't sleep enough.

During my journey my partner have left me (6 months ago) because my health issue, so it's quite difficult to decide if my symptoms still remained from the vaccine or it is depression 😅

Those who start fluvoxamine, do you take it for a few weeks or more time?

I hope the remaining symptoms will also subside with time, I saw the progress in my 8 months nightmare, but still not perfect.

Are there anyone here who has still some mild symptoms remained from almost 8-9 months left?

 

Yes I also still have symptoms, I’m 7 months post 1st dose. My remaining issues are ear pressure and kind of blurry vision on one side, heart palpitations and bladder issues. And i am still à little tired. it’s all way better than in the beginning but i’m still not back to myself.
I have been taking an antidepressant for a month now (not fluvoxamine but another one prescribed by my doctor) and it’ s been helping. I will keep taking it for another month or 2 (very low dosage).

Hi

i just wanted to say I got vestibular Nueritis after having a flu shot in 2018. Basically if you have a virus dormant in your body and the vaccine takes your immune system down there is a chance it can become active and that is what happened to me. My Epstein Barr virus attacked my vestibular nerve. Most of the symptoms I see here sound like VN. I had vertigo for 4 days straight.  Took 2 weeks before I could walk a line. Imbalance, ears felt full, got the feeling I was swaying and falling constantly.  My head felt like it was stuck in a church bell and every step I took my head felt like it was being rung.  Tinnitus.  I lost 15 pounds. Overwhelmed by surroundings. Derealization.  It took a year and a half for me to get over.  Well I’m not completely well and things will never be the same.  I say the best thing is don’t sit around. Get moving. I went to work a month after my illness started and my physical job and physical therapy got me better.  Look into the Vestibular Nueritis section of this site.  I know I had more symptoms than I listed. Btw the anxiety comes from your vagus nerve.  It’s happening when your body is panicking due to dizziness and imbalance.  The only thing that helped that for a while was a benzo.  I wish all of you well.  I will not take this vaccine or any other ever again.  Because of this. 

Did you have an eye issue as well ?

When you say it never got back to What it was, what are you still feeling ?

@coco I didn’t have an eye issue.  Other than being overwhelmed in many places by my surroundings.  My head feels off still sometimes and I get dizzy. Headaches on occasion. Tinnitus and full ears.  I’m way better now. But k got hit with this 3 years ago after the flu shot. I will not be taking the covid shot.
