Hi all. I've been reading this forum for the last month and it has been a big help in appreciating that I seem to not be alone in what I'm experiencing.

I'm a 31 year old male in Australia. Until the Pfizer vax, was fortunate to have always had very good health.

I had my second dose of Pfizer on the 22nd Sept, and since about 5 days after that I have been dealing with one symptom or another every day. Today and yesterday seem worse than usual which is concerning to say the least.

My first symptoms in hindsight seemed to be a bit of shortness of breath or lightheadedness (hard to say) starting around 5 days post vax. It wasn't severe and I didn't think too much of it at the time. 

From about a week later, started to feel dizzy on and off throughout the day but especially in the afternoons and when I'm out for a walk. Dizziness hasn't seemed to be an issue when first waking up or late at night for some reason. The dizziness has been a consistent symptom, feeling that on and off throughout the day for every day since Day 5.

I also have had weird head throbs / slight pains for about a month. I never used to get headaches before that. Fortunately these seem to have lessened off in the last week or two and only rarely feel a head throb / headache pain.

The latest symptom has been the most concerning however. Starting a week ago, I've been feeling weak in the arms. It is usually the right arm but on one other occasion it was the left and other times it is both. I've also felt occasional weakness in my lower leg but not as noticeable as the arms. The weakness seems to make me a bit clumsier and slower, but hasn't stopped me doing anything as of yet.

I've seen a few different docs and after ruling out the usual things, inner ear infection, eye problems, I've finally badgered one into recommending me for a head MRI tomorrow. Will have to wait until next week for the results however. 

If anyone has anything to share on what I'm experiencing, whether you have had a similar experiences and what you did to help deal with it, I'd be grateful to hear it. 

Cheers, and best wishes to all.

@twistedgift thanks for your kind thoughts. I agree. It is all very frustrating.

@thamollusk mine don't seem to have any trigger whatsoever, I can be feeling relatively fine and then almost instantly the dizziness and tingles will come and that is when I know I'm in for a bad time. I just lay on the lounge and try to relax as to not work myself up over it. I got myself fish oil, vitamin c and some antihistamine yesterday and some green tea which helped some. I will just keep trying whatever I come across in the hopes that one day these side effects will disappear or at the very least be so minimal that I can live the life I was prior to this dreaded "vaccine".

Same. Sometimes I feel relatively okay for about a week. Sometimes an hour of good then symptoms again. I posted a ways back I thought I was 80-90% better and then this last week has set me back. I have felt terrible. 

When was your last vaccine shot?

I know we are all dealing with these problems but when we kick ourselves for taking the vaccine we can look at the other side.

A friend just spent a week in the hospital with Covid (unvaccinated) said it was the worst thing he's ever experienced had to take oxygen home and who knows if he experiences long covid.

You only hear that people with our symptoms are getting better but never that someone is completely cured. Do you know people?
I am very scared that the side effects will stay forever:(

Just a quick update, 

It’s been almost 4 months since my 1st Moderna vaccine when all my symptoms started. I can honestly say my symptoms are getting better little by little each day. I am still experiencing slight dizziness, visual disturbances, brain fog, mild anxiety, ear pressure/headaches and chest pain here and there. I really think our bodies will just need as much time as possible to heal and I’ve promised myself by 1 year I’ll be 100% back to normal. That sounds so long away but in a years time I know I’ll look back and I’ll see how much progress has been made. No more vaccines!! I think the Moderna was way too strong for a young woman like me, its done enough damage to my body. I do notice new or different symptoms pop up every so often but nothing that worries me as I know my body is trying it’s best to fight off this foreign substance. Ive been sleeping A LOT which I believe really helps the process. Our bodies are capable of so much! I have faith as long as I keep giving my body the ingredients it needs to heal. I’ve been keeping up on vitamins and natural supplements to help. I am grateful for every one of you that post on here for helping me feel like I am not alone in this and giving me the strength to keep pushing through. We’re in this together and I can’t wait to hear about everyone else’s progress as time goes on🙏🏼💪🏼 Stay strong!

@deedee I definitely get bloating and fullness after I eat. It’s very annoying, it usually subsides with a Tums.

Hi to all

Has been a while, hope everyone is hanging in there. Quick update from my side. 2nd pfizer shot in the beginning of July, symptoms started in the beginning of August out of nowhere. So up until now, have had dizziness and vision issues for a bit more than 4 months.. They come in waves.. I would have a good week or so, almost without any dizziness, high energy, very good mood and then out of nowhere, I would relapse. This week, I have had very severe symptoms, as if being drunk. Walking outside helps a bit, screens seem to make the symptoms worse. So today, feel like crap to be honest. But still hoping things will get better at some point and stay better. Have tried to pinpoint the triggers, nothing makes sense. Symptoms just come really randomly, out of thin air. I have an MRI scheduled for January, all tests have come back fine so far. Been taking tumeric, fish oil, you name it.. Pointless really..

So next steps for me are to start taking again antihistamines, pseudoephedrine,  some drugs my doctor prescribed me against dizziness, also have steroids sitting here on the shelf. So lets see, if anything helps. My GP thinks its an inner ear issue, neurologist is kind of unsure. I have started to suspect cyber sickness, but then again, I have been working with screens non stop for the past 15 years.. So in general, it all just doesnt make any sense. 

stay well,

@bowie I am completely better.  I had the brain fog and dizziness after vaccine 2 that only lasted about 2 weeks in April.   I had no problem with vaccine 3 booster other than sore arm and fatigue for few days.  Hoping all get better soon.

Forgive me if it’s already been mentioned or setup, but, do you guys think it worthwhile we create a post that has things people have taken/tried that ease the side effects a bit? 

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with discord but I would be happy to make one for us to all gather and chat in. It would be a lot easier to keep track of as well. Just an idea, I know I’m only new here so feel free to ignore haha

the past two days have been ALOT better for me. the tingling in my feet and hands are subsiding and overall the only thing i’ve really been dealing with is the dissociation with i ignore. 

yesterday something scary happened that never has happened before and i need to know if anyone else has experienced this or might know what happened? 

i was moving around alot, playing with my niece in the moment and also had just finished eating about 30 mins ago. i had beans, rice, peppers, chicken, pico de gallo and that’s it. i had stood up from my chair and on the left side of my body (not the side i got the shot) i felt a weird pressure in my throat/chest/neck. then i got a loud ringing and pressure in my ear and i got really dizzy and had to sit down. i breathed my way through it but it was so scary. i’ve never had anything like that happen before? 

my dizziness and vertigo was only really bad when i first got my shot and that was for about a week or two. then they both subsided, lately i have been alot more dissociated, off balance and getting the rocky boat feeling when laying down.
