@gv186 Where can I find information about the COV vax attacking the dormant virus in my body.  I am 2 months out from a diagnosis of vestibular neuritis/labrynthitis and just now am able to come back to work.  There are parts of my job I still cannot do (assisting in surgery) I've lost income and so much more from this vax.  Not something I wanted in my body in the first place but forced to collect a paycheck.  I received the J and J. 

Someone had shared a link here about it. If you look for posts with the keyword SHINGLES, you should be able to locate the post.

It had a link to an article which spoke about dormant viruses.

@marticoop75 

My symptoms did return twice. Once in July and once in Nov. I am still battling with the Nov symptoms. 

What were your symptoms? How long has it been since you got jabbed?

I see you've mentioned you got in once in July and now in Nov. So for how long have you felt better on and off? Any explanation from any doctor why the symptoms returned?

@jaydev55 - symptoms wise I am still the same. Ringing and eye floaters are still there but less noticeable. As per my neurologist, it should resolve in the next 2-3 months. He also warned me about the flare-ups during viral infection. So, I am mentally prepared for bursts during flu/cold. He also mentioned that it wouldn't be as bad as vaccine side effects. It will take a year or two for our bodies to settle down ultimately. 

 

 

1-2 years to settle down? Did your doctor say what has caused this reaction in us?

Is it just about a certain symptom or all symptoms caused post the jab? Your response could help many of us who're still unsure how to deal with all of this.

At the risk of jinxing myself into a relapse, I have been feeling great this last week and I've never had that many days in a row. I'm about 8.5 months post 2nd Moderna and 7 months since symptoms began. I hope everyone gets beyond this, it's nice to go through the day and not think about it.

@dbranch You are only 9 days in - do not give up hope!

This is an old post, I just copied it and edited it a bit, but want to share it with you. 

To those that are new here, I want to share that I fully “recovered” in about 17 days post shot #2. (No significant symptoms after the first). I have been myself for about two months now. Look up my past posts for more in the moment accounts. I had severe brain fog to the point where I could not function cognitively, extreme fatigue, my face went numb, my fingers tingled, headaches, etc. etc. What I did has not worked for everyone but maybe it will work for you. The short version is: 1. Quercetin and zinc taken together. (I believe this combo got me over the hump). 2. Rest. Do not push yourself. I literally laid in bed for 12 days in and out of sleep. 3. Eat a plant based diet. For real- kale, avocado, and almonds for lunch. Drink lots of water. 4. Work to gain control of your anxiety. It makes things worse. Pay attention to your thoughts, fear, panic, and breath. 5. I also started taking Vit d, c, fish oil, turmeric, glutathione, lions mane and drank a lot different herbal teas. I took a couple Epsom salt baths. Do not give up hope. But also, recognize where your mind and body are right now, take care of it, and believe in your body’s ability to heal.

 

That's the most quick recovery I've seen on the forum!🤍

How are you feeling these days?

Glad I found this.  I'm 49, male.  Got the 2 shots in spring, in the summer I starting experiencing vertigo, from mild to severe.   It is always starts the second week of every other month.  Sometimes it lasts 1 day, sometimes 3 weeks.  I never had this before.  I've wondered if the shots were related.

Figured I'd give you all an update on my progress. Got the Vaccine on April 27th. Have dealt with persistent dizziness and tinnitus ever since. I tried the supplements that dizzyfromvaccine suggested on here for two weeks, unfortunately, it didn't get rid of my dizziness or tinnitus.

I've gone to 6 different doctors (3 Ents, 3 vestibular specialists) all of whom have had different outlooks on what's causing this. First two ENT's refused to acknowledge that this was caused by the vaccine at all, very frustrating. Third Ent prescribed Prednisone which didn't do anything. The first vestibular specialist prescribed a low dose (0.25mg) of Xanax, she claimed it would help alleviate the dizziness and the tinnitus, it didn't do anything.

The past two vestibular specialists I've seen are both claiming that these symptoms are from a "Vestibular Migraine." They said they were 99.9% certain that's what's causing this. They acknowledged that the vaccine triggered this event and that the brain is overcompensating and that I need to take medication to get the brain back down to normal levels. I've maybe had two bad headaches in my life so this seemed far-fetched but at this point, I'm willing to try whatever will make this go away. They want me to use the Vestibular Migraine diet and go on medication. They claim that if I do this, there's an 80% chance I will recover in 6 weeks. They said if I don't want to go that route, I can try using the vestibular migraine diet and take 200 mg twice a day (400mg) of Vitamin B2 and 400 mg twice a day (800mg) of Magnesium oxide. As of now I'm testing the supplements and diet but am planning to start the medication soon and will post updates on how it goes.

For everyone on this forum, Please, if you get better, post it on here so that people can see that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Post what worked for you and what didn't work, we're all in this together.  

Has it worked for you? How are you feeling these days?

@medee My symptoms after the first shot went away after 4 weeks but didn’t feel fully myself after the 5th week.

After the second shot, I only had intense fatigue that lasted exactly 24 hours and that was it.

Does anyone else gets random pain in any part of the body which hadn't had issues so far or is it only me?

 

I have pain in my head like u at different part of the head.

And also pain all over my body.

And 2 weeks ago, my knee cap, and fingers swollen.

New symptoms keep surfacing.

@medee I am feeling great! 100% back to my original self. (And there will be no booster!)  I am fortunate in that my husband was able to take 3 weeks off work to be with the kids, and I was able to fully take care of my  self.  It was because of the advice found here that I  was able to “recover” quickly.

Stay strong, positive, and believe in the body’s ability to heal.

I wanted to give an update on my ongoing battle with unsteadiness after receiving the Moderna shot. I posted back in March/April of 2021. I have had 2 episodes since vaccination that have lasted 3-5 weeks in duration with my most current issues still persisting but improving. I have had testing including MRI's, bloodwork, vestibular workup and all have come back normal. I saw a specialist known for instability issues that does not feel any of this is related to the vaccine even though I documented headaches, instability, dizziness, weakness, and other issues within the same day to 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine. This professional feels my instability is not vaccine related because I have had 2 instability episodes since and is attributing my instability to migraines that do not present with pain but instability. I have a hard time believing this considering I did not have any issues prior to vaccination. I am looking into seeing an autoimmune or immunology specialist to help determine what is going on, so I know whether or not to receive a booster shot and risk new issues that are worse than what I am currently experiencing. I work in healthcare and believe that vaccines are needed to help with the current pandemic, but also want to be able to continue to work without being disabled from unsteadiness regardless of the cause. The first episode where my instability reoccurred was when I was with 15 other vaccinated people at a lake house for a weekend where no one wore masks. I tested for Covid at the time with a PCR test at the proper interval with the results being negative. The second episode was when I went to a concert where the venue required masks upon entry but did not enforce masks in the venue. I stayed for about 45-60 minutes and left because I was one of about 10% of people wearing a mask in a crowded venue where every seat was sold and there was no social distancing. Again, I took a PCR test and was found to not have Covid. After both instances I have decided to do nothing where I will be in an environment without a mask or in an environment where others may not be masked. I had already been not doing anything since Covid started except these 2 instances that resulted in a reoccurrence of my instability. I am not sure if others have noticed a pattern to their symptoms? Stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep seem to increase my symptoms when I have been having these reoccurrences with cognitive factors and headache occurring at times as well.

Has anyone on this forum been able to get any answers as to what is occurring in all of us with these issues?

If so what type of specialist has been helpful in determining cause and treatment?

Has anyone with symptoms obtained a booster and if so, what has happened with your symptoms?

Has anyone that has gotten a booster obtained a different shot than their original vaccine?

Does anyone know of someone to contact within the medical community for them to study what is occurring in us? I reported my symptoms to VAERS and initially got a call from the CDC but when I followed up no one contacted me after. I would like to know of a research group or medical professional that is looking into these symptoms that can help us all learn about what is occurring and how to address it so that we can all go back to our normal selves that we were before. 

Received the e-mail below after contacting NIH/NINDS a couple months ago - you might consider reporting your symptoms to them as well:

Thank you for your email, and for drawing attention to this issue.

It is always helpful to report symptoms that occur post vaccination on CDC monitoring sites.

In addition, the NIH is interested in reports of symptoms post vaccine or post COVID, and patients are encouraged to email us at: [email protected]
