@mina 

unfortunately no 😓

Hopefully you will soon.  Did the weight loss derive from GI issues?

Good morning,

 

Just came across your site and forum. I would like to report the following:

 

Caucasian male, 72 years old

 

21 October 2021 2nd Pfizer dose

 

2 November 2021 walking up a fairly steep hill I suddenly got dizzy/vertigo and almost fell down due to imbalance. Now 2 months later these symptoms persist. The first hospital I visited on 4 November gave me an MRI and ruled out central vertigo (oof) and diagnosed me with BPPV. They prescribed Serc 24 mg 3 per day. Two months later there were no improvements and I visited a second hospital where they did far more extensive testing. First a vascular specialist gave me a ABI which was normal. Then an ENT specialist examined my ears which were normal, followed by a hearing test, also normal for my age. Lastly a neurologist examined me and gave me an MRI of the brain, MRI of the arteries leading to the brain and an MRI of the whole vertebral column. All normal. Lastly he gave me an echo doppler of the carotid arteries. Normal.

 

So could anyone please point me in the right direction because after all these "normal" results, after 2 months I am certainly NOT normal.

 

Any help or advice would be highly appreciated. 

 

 

 

P.S. Whenever I asked a specialist if it could be a side effect from the 2nd Pfizer vaccination they all scoffed at this suggestion

Hello @tonys,

It might be worth sending the following article posted by @gingerjones to your doctor(s), and maybe contacting some of the researchers mentioned in the article who are looking into longer-term vaccine side effects.

YES! Though I had my first 2 Pfizer vaccines with minimal, negligible, side effects.. I just received my 3rd Booster and the day after started get flashes in the left corner of my left eye! The next day it started in the right corner of my right eye. Today's the 3rd day and now seeing a couple floaters while also seeing the flashes in both eyes, along with pressure and tenderness! Today I've been looking all over the net for info on whether to go to th ER like a vision and eye center website said for someone who normally has a sudden onset of flashers. It says that it can be a serious sign of a tear or bleeding inside eye & to for urgent assistance.. doesn't mention anything about the vaccine. There was another "official" website stating that some people are afraid to get the vaccine because of claims that it causes eye problems  & there's no proof of ocular side effects from the vaccine.. I call BS because look at us! I think I'm going to the ER either way! What happened with you?

@marisanna21 I hope that they start doing some research on the affects of the vax because at this point I am even afraid to get a flu vax which I have gotten many times before. I'm literally afraid of putting anything in my body.

Attached is an article someone just sent me regarding research being done on adverse effects of the covid vaccine...

Maybe finally, we will get the help we DESERVE!!

Sorry to put forth this comment but its scary than feeling relieved. Though this will get us some sort of acknowledgement for our injuries, there is no treatment for Covid Long Haulers as well.

These people mostly become suicidal as the symptoms haven't left them for a year or more. Many have ended their lives. I don't want to disappoint anyone nor push them into doing anything but, at the speed things are going on, we may have to wait for too long for answers or should I say, for treatment.

There is no medical explanation to long covid nor has it been for us. Even if they conclude that vaccines are affecting a few of us which is leading to us living a life of a covid patient, there is nothing good about this at all.

What we need is treatment. We need immediate help. Our lives are at stake and all we're doing is just being a bit relieved that our injuries are somewhat getting acknowledged? What times are we living in!

An injured with no medical support waiting for their injuries being acknowledged by the ones who gave us these injuries in the 1st place!

If they have suffered since 2019 and still scientists have no clue on it, what are the chances we will have answers for us so soon?

This is only to show that vaccines are acting as covid so the same symptoms in a few of us. But we both don't have any solution to this. We'd be suffering like long haulers for months or years. And for how long, nobody knows.

Some will get better, some won't for long. Some might give up.... 

I am on the verge of losing my job. There are many here like me and @rainday who are the only earning member. We're struggling coz of this poison! 

I live in a stupid country which doesn't even offer medical help nor insurance from the government. No disability clause, no, nothing! Everything I do for my health will be from my pocket. I don't earn much to spend every month on stupid tests which will come back normal and then run to do few more tests coz symptoms keep on changing. What is this nonsense!

I will be honest, I have constant bouts of ending it all. I cannot bear these symptoms. I cannot sleep at night. My heart pounds and I feel I may stop breathing anytime. My family has been crying from past 3 months. What did I do to deserve this? What did anyone of us do to have such a life!

What are we celebrating? Our injuries getting acknowledged after a year or more? Do we even know how many must have ended their lives post getting this shit? No, we don't. 

I just know one Solider here in India who killed himself from his own service gun due to this stupid vaxx and left a note requesting his father not to inject this shit. We don't know how many have. We all agree at some point we all thought we won't make it alive, we thought of ending it for once but we're all still here hoping that it'll end soon that too without any medical help.

At this speed, they will kill more people. This is slow poison. What we need is help! Help to recover. But alas! We don't have it! We are still on our own. This is attempt to murder! They're all fuckin murderers. Trust me when I say this, no matter what they won't stop injecting this in people. These pages will keep increasing. We're reaching 1K soon! This is such a shame!

More people will join us, some will recover, some recovered will come back and tell us they had a relapse, some will end their lives or stop commenting.. and some may get some new diseases.... this cycle will go on.

This is madness! Everyone will join us sooner or later! This is the biggest blunder which will wash off more than half of the planet. We're just the intial batch which made to this! Many will join later.... 

I hate saying this but this is the fact! We're on our own for longgg. By the time they do anything, they will destroy many families, many lives. One among those is mine!

I also spoke with Moran who said she's 100% recovered in 6 months who said she's had a relapse and would say is 90% better as she has ups and down. There are a few others who too have mentioned about relapse post recovery.

If post Covid, people are having symptoms for months, why do we think we won't have symptoms post vaccine's die out from our system? That explains why some of us haven't gotten better even after a year. This is so disheartening!

This is madness! Everyone will join us sooner or later! This is the biggest blunder which will wash off more than half of the planet. We're just the intial batch which made to this! Many will join later....

I also feel somewhat similar as this person. I had a sudden onset of flashing in the left eye the day after my booster. I had already had the other 2 Pfizer vaccines in April & didn't have any side effects that I can remember. But the next day it started in my right eye to a lesser extent. My left eye continued just the same. BUT the day after that it started to get worse and I also looked up what it could mean & saw the tear you spoke of. And it freaked me out so I'm going to urgent care tomorrow.

I like so many others on here have had tons of eye issues on here. Just use the search button and put in vision or eyes and all the posts mentioning eyes will come up. 

I have experienced the flashes of light too. Was worried about glaucoma or detached retina. Had two eye exams and two OCT scans and eyes are all good. This leads me to believe my problems are caused my nerves in my brain misfiring due to inflammation.

I have recently seen some improvement but since my vaccine eye issues I have experienced include;

Black flashes of light.

Visual snow.

Eyes tender to touch eye when washing face/removing make up.

Sharp stabbing pain in back of eye.

Flashes of white/purple/blue dots.

Blurry blind spots in vision (occular migraine?).

Haloes of rainbows around stuff especially lights.

After images.

Mild double vision.

Thick grey floaters.

Blurred vision.

Sections of my sight shakin/wobbling (nystagmus?)

Peripheral vision seemed to dance and distort at times. 

Vision sometimes had a red or turquoise tint to it.

Dry eyes.

Conjunctivitis.

Feeling like an eyelash or grit under my eye lids.

Lots of headaches during this time too.

Hi Tony,

Yip you got it guy. I’m ten months in after second Pfizer. You are a repeat of what I have experienced. Second week after jab, visited my daughter and family and fell backwards while climbing up stairs but fortunately caught myself. Weird. ENT said it was my age and common for people my age along with the dizziness that has plagued me for ten months. He did however lead me to this forum, but other than that will not address if it could be related to side effects of Pfizer. I am now seeing neurologist as my migraines have gone from one or two every few months to daily. She will also not touch if it might be related to the vaccine and also has no idea as to why as MRI and all vitals are “normal” but I am not normal. I think I have Long COVID given all my strange symptoms such as loss of smell. Really??? When I jotted them all down they totaled 19 different weird things that relate to COVID which I haven’t had and the tests I’ve had come back negative most recently a month ago.

So what is going on? I believe my body had a reaction to the vaccine that must have caused me to react to the vaccine like it was an injection of the virus. It’s the only thing that makes sense since I don’t think I have had COVID but I will get tested to see if I have any COVID antibodies just to be sure. If not, I will surmise it is just a bad reaction to the vaccine. And shame on all of the docs for sweeping it and us under the carpet to protect Big Pharma and the Gov who I’m guessing know better and but just want to make money and prevent more vaccine hesitancy. What about all of us on this forum and many silent others who are suffering??? Guess we don’t count.

Hang in there Tony and all of us, including me. It’s a struggle, but no alternate other than fighting our way out of it.

OMG KitKat, I’m having the same vision problems and have been blaming my Migraines that have increased to daily since have the second Pfizer last March. But now I get the “light show” without the severe headache. My neurologist has recommended that I see an ophthalmologist as she thinks it’s caused by ocular migraines which I’ve never had. Classic migraines with auras yes but never just auras without the severe headache following.
What you described is exacting what I’m experiencing.  Thank you. This is crazy stuff going on and I’m so sick of it as  sure we all are. I’m just happy that most who got the vaccine are not suffering just wish those of us on this forum doing the so called right thing we’re not suffering with no end in sight.

Hi all, I wanted to acknowledge another reason I'm so grateful for all of you in this forum.

We all have been going through so many physically distressing things already. Then there's all the denial from medical professionals. That's bad enough. Today I lost a second 'good friend' when I finally opened up to her about my experiences over the past several months. Many friends I'm sure have been wondering why I'm in contact less than I used to be. Part of it is some days I'm just not capable. The second is it's just too exhausting to have to keep relaying my (very long) story. On top of that, I don't want to have to lie when people innocently ask me how I am.

Anyway, I'm at a loss about why some people have to challenge us when we speak honestly about OUR OWN experiences. Or worse, call us "anti" names. The whole reason I'm in this mess is because I said 'yes', right? I'm always very careful to say I don't want to alarm anyone or change their personal mind about boosters, etc. But, I feel like some have people honestly lost all compassion for their own family and friends. Can they not grasp that something that may have some benefit to some people, can be toxic to others? What has happened to basic critical thinking, regardless of what the media spews?

Anyway, I figured I am not the only one dealing with this extra layer of sadness and disappointment. For anyone else who has experienced something similar, I get it. And I also wanted to tell you that I have also had a few friends and family who have stepped up enormously and not judged. Regardless of their personal opinions or fears.

I hope you all have someone in your lives that has stepped up for you, in whatever way they are able. And even if that's not the case, you always have the support of the great people here. As much as I sometimes hate on social media in general, I honestly don't know how I would have gotten this far without this forum.

Wishing you all a good weekend!

I had a two month stretch where I had a non stop headache. During this time my eye issues were particularly bad. The headache wasn't bad enough to require pain relief but I was certainly very aware of it. I have been a life long sufferer of big standard migraines but the most they have ever lasted was 4 days. My doctor said that a lot of my symptoms sound like occular migraine. 

I also sometimes see my pulse in my vision. I've probably missed a few other eye issues but I had so much going on at one point I didn't think it was possible to have such issues all at once with my eyes.

The black flashes have been the most worrying for me as nobody including my doctor has ever heard of it. The only other reference to it I have come across was on this forum by @danwood012 who also had several eye issues we have.
