Just curious if anyone was suffering from vertigo or other vestibular issues, got a booster shot for example, and felt better?  I'm curious that some people with long COVID report symptom relief when getting a booster.  Just curious if anyone found that experience at all?

I have often wondered about this too. I have read long covid people feeling better after getting the vaccine. So I was curious if I got the second would I feel better? I personally am not risking any more covid shots. I had one and I feel like it ruined my life thus far. I have noticed with every big flare afterwards I feel a bit better day to day? It’s the weirdest thing. 

I had thought about it too.

I've only had one Pfizer jab back in August and still not 100% I'm afraid of catching covid but also afraid of taking another jab. 

From what I've read on here it really seems to be 50/50 pot luck that you will either feel worse after a second jab or have no further symptoms.

I'm personally afraid of creating more damage after taking months to have a little recovery.

I was thinking about the vaccine walk-in centres offering boosters.

I think the boosters are half the dose of the first two jabs?

I was wondering what would happen if some one who only had one Vax went to a walk in centre and took a "half" booster instead of a full normal second dose?

Would a half booster be better for us as we would get a little more protection than one single jab while being a smaller dose and in theory create a milder reaction? 

I don't have a medical background so could be waffling but I would be interested to hear if anyone does skip the second full dose for a booster.

Anyone have a weird tingling that goes across their forehead or on the left side of their scalp. Its been freaking me out the last couple of days and Idk what to make of it. I recently did a new blood test with my GP. Everything was fine except for 4 things my liver enzymes are still elevated but not by a crazy amount, My hemoglobin is at 19 instead of 17, My homocysteine is at 19 as well which can indicate vascular inflammation, and my folic acid is borderline deficient. So I currently have thick blood and vascular inflammation which is kind of scary to think about and my folic acid which is supposed to reduce the vascular inflammation is also on the low side. Im scared tbh I cant take aspirin because I had a pretty bad reaction back at the end of october, Idk what my options are in terms of blood thinning. I also didn't drink any water when I went to the doctor so that could've potentially had an impact on my hemoglobin, Im not sure at this point. This vaccine ruined my life and I just live in fear every single day. I just really hope it gets better man im tired of being this way. 

Hi there.

My husband had his first Pfizer in Dec last year. The day after he spoke of a tingling sensation that travels across the left side of his forehead towards his left ear. 

He said it didn't hurt it was just very strange and unusual and annoying after a while.

He works in a hospital and asked every single doctor and nurse what it could be and everyone just shrugged and said they didn't know or that it was nerve twitching caused by tiredness.

He never had it before the vax and it started the morning after he woke up after the vax. It went away after a couple of months but came back after his second jab. It's now almost a year since his first Pfizer and ten months since the second.

He still gets the sensation on and off to this day. He's had no explanation for it. He says sometimes it feels like water trickling along his forehead and temple, other times like a snake is slithering around. 

My best guess is it's an inflamed nerve misfiring or small face muscle twitching. I did read much earlier on this thread a woman asking about any others experiencing the same sort of thing as her young  daughter complained of it too.

@jacquelynsauriol I’m all for having open discussions, but I personally am getting a bit weary of all the linking to non reputable sources on this site (and even the occasional affiliate link - like really, we are trying to make money off each other here now?).

Joe Rogan is an ex mma fighter who was advocating ivermectin at one point (which has little to no evidence that it does anything, and has also resulted in about 100 overdose deaths). I want answers too, but I think we need science based solutions and not random doctors, media personalities, and naturopaths giving random advice.

@lmkk I work in a medical office that administers booster doses. The Pfizer booster is the same dosage as the first two vaccines (30 micrograms); the Moderna booster, however, is only half the dose (50 micrograms as opposed to 100.) They wouldn't allow someone who hadn't received their second dose to receive the booster. 

I had two doses of the Moderna, and in the beginning, I wondered if I would have better tolerated the Pfizer, which had less of the mRNA (200 micrograms after two doses of the Moderna vs. 60 micrograms after two doses of the Pfizer.) However, after reading all of the reactions on this site, I'm convinced it's the mRNA itself - not the amount in the vaccine - that causes the damage. 

I would personally not risk taking a third dose, but as you wrote, there are some people who did and had no further reactions. The entire thing is very, very odd!

I couldn't agree more! I work in a field where I read scholarly research articles daily which gives me an appreciation for quality, scientific based information. I understand people are just trying to help and spread the word, but definitely make sure your source is reputable and comes to the conclusions you think it does. 

I also agree that what we are going through it not fair and is frustrating, but as someone else mentioned, we (those suffering side effects) are in the minority. Who knows the amount of lives the vaccine has actually saved?? Don't get me wrong, I will not be getting a booster or any other COVID vaccine in the future as my life has been drastically impacted by the ones I have already received. But I am doing my absolute best not to dwell on the past and think about my regret. I got the vaccine so I would not get COVID and (although chances are low) die. Because of that, I get to wake up and see (through my dizziness) my wife and son every day and for that I am grateful. 

Now can we get this forum back to hearing people's stories, asking what helped/didn't help, and for heavens sake hearing recovery stories? (not trying to offend anyone, just my recent thoughts)

Thanks for your response I had a scoot around online but I couldn't find the actual amounts each different dose had. 

50micrograms is still alot I didn't realize Pfizer was just 30 I felt like a train wreck afterwards.

I was kind of half hatching a plan of maybe sneaking in and just getting a half dose booster but if moderna is still higher than Pfizer I will definitely give it a miss! 

I think you are very right about the mRNA. My sister in law is a nurse and has been administering vaccines. While the other non mRNA jabs have been creating some side effects it does appear that Pfizer seems to generate the most complaints.

I do wish they would hurry up and release the Novavax vaccine in the UK. I've been following the clinical trials in London hospitals and the data looks promising. Very little and only fleeting mild side effects in around 18k volunteers. 

They pushed this new mRNA technology out so fast I don't understand what is the hold up with this traditional style Novavax vaccine... probably £££.

@kvgarcia yep! It went away. I believe it was one of the first symptoms to start disappearing for me.

I am also interested in this. I have been debating about going and buying them as they seem to have helped many on here. I hope you get a response from someone.

the science based solution for COVID was the vaccine. science based solutions for everything aren’t always the best idea. the fact that naturopaths are helping people beyond what they medications are doing for people is actually a wonderful thing. 

if our symptoms and issues could possibly be cured by natural medications that would indicate that it’s not as bad as we think it is.

Hey all! Been in this forum since April. Got my second shot April 18th and was down ever since with severe brain fog, ear pain, blurred vision, floaters, etc. After about 3.5 months most of my symptoms subsided, was able to return back to work after not working since I got the second shot. Which was a big win. I would say I’m about 90% recovered, but am still dealing w floaters, occasional blurred vision, and minor brain fog ONLY when I’m outdoors. Wondering if anyone who is mostly recovered has dealt with this as well? I’m not too worried considering 3 months ago I couldn’t even walk into my backyard or go inside a grocery store without being utterly disoriented, but would love to be 100% again!!

With your recent post, I looked back at your story and found this post from quite a while ago. My remaining symptoms are dizziness/disorientation and brain fog. They seem to get worse outside and in large spaces like the grocery store. Was this the last symptom(s) to improve for you? It almost seems as it I am "stuck" at this point in recovery as I have been here for a couple weeks. I am considering nasalcrom for the brain fog like you previously mentioned.

this is why i haven’t really taken any medication. i’m scared shitless about these side effects. our bodies are in a sensitive place. the FLCC protocol and world council for health has a bunch of medications listed. 

medication is what started this issue. i personally don’t trust higher ups anymore, medication or anything! i’ve never heard of FLCC or world council for health and who is to say they didn’t know about this while vaccines were being administered?

i’ve been thinking about visiting a naturopath. i’m tired of medication at this point. i tried meclizine and it made everything worse and gave me a panic attack. amoxicillin gave me high fevers and vomiting. antihistamine made my heart race.

My best guess is it's an inflamed nerve misfiring or small face muscle twitching. I did read much earlier on this thread a woman asking about any others experiencing the same sort of thing as her young  daughter complained of it too.

i have the water trickling sensation and slithering. it’s almost like my nerves went from my feet buzzing (p&n) to my face.

Agreed this was a point I was trying to make earlier. With all of the information out there the only thing I’m going to take as a medical breakthrough would have to come from a peer reviewed medical journal or equal source. This is why all of this is so confusing and hard to sift through. There are so many things out there.
