Hi guys, I’ve had vision issues after the first dose of Pfizer for 3 months now. I just wanted to share some information that could help other people if you’ve got similar vision issues to mine. It was an onset and my vision felt misaligned and just not right at all (still does) It wasn’t until I recently saw an optometrist this week that specialises beyond normal optometry that I found out I have ‘Convergence Excess’. So I’ve still got 20/20 vision but have problems converging my eyes properly (I’m over converging them) which creates a misalignment and results in blurred vision. It’s near and far for me, but close work is worse especially using a computer. The treatment options are syntonics, prism glasses and vision therapy. I am currently doing syntonics and feel like it has improved my distance vision a bit. Next steps is trying prisms and then start vision therapy next year and I can keep you all updated with how it goes. Here is more about convergence excess - hope everyone is hanging in there! https://focusvisiontherapycenter.com/vision-therapy-glossary-a-z/convergence-excess/

@jess7, I have also just seen a Behavioural Optometrist, who has found out that I have Convergence Insufficiency, with my ability to focus being only on 25%. He has suggested doing the Pencil Push-up exercises, but I have read online that Vision Therapy is more efficient in eliminating the symptoms. Have you started your vision therapy yet? If so, how is it going so far?

Hey hey, I’m glad they’re found out that you’ve got CI so that you can now start to treat it! I think that’s the the most common one. So I’ve actually got convergence excess and divergence insufficiency - I’m also intermittently suppressing each eye at different times and my brain is stopping me from seeing full double vision. So I did 6 weeks of syntonics last year at the optometrist which was good, I finished just around Christmas and it did help reduce the intensity of my symptoms and definitely helped with my anxiety. My vision still isn’t fully corrected though so I’m now doing it from home and I’ve got the colour filtered glasses from my optometrist and am just using a light bulb to look at. I highly recommend you doing that if your behavioural optometrist recommends it too because it is helping me. I start actual vision therapy on Feb 2 and I’ll be doing it every fortnight for 10 sessions. I’ll keep you updated on my progress! Apparently vision therapy and syntonics go hand in hand and they’re both good to do together apparently. I was also using this paper/dot exercise that should help with CI - maybe you can ask your behaviour optometrist if they have one for you? I reckon if you can do vision therapy too you should. I know it’s expensive but I think it could be worth it! I can keep you updated with mine first if you like.

So I had my last shot in July of 2021, and it was the one that caused my vestibular issues.  I wouldn't say I'm back to 100%, but I have more good days than bad days now, and I'd say I'm mostly about 90%.

While many people will probably disagree with my decision, I've decided to get my booster here in Spain tomorrow.  I don't particularly want to, but they've announced that the vaccine passports will expire unless you have a shot within the last 9 months, so at some point soon I won't even be able to visit restaurants, let alone travel home to Canada to see my family.  If I'm going to have side effects, I'd rather have them in the next few months, when the weather isn't so good, then be forced to get a booster in April or May and risk wrecking my whole summer (which I will hopefully spend hiking).

So rather than agree or disagree with the decision (it's a personal choice), what I'd like to do is keep you up to date on how it goes and if I have any regression of symptoms.  I suspect other people will soon be in a similar position as me where you'll have to make a complicated, difficult decision.  I have a pack of glucocorticosteroids here as well from previous treatments, so if my immune system ramps up high at least I have something to dull it down again in the short term. 

So, stay tuned, and I'll give you some updates over the next few weeks.  They've already told me they will give me Moderna moderna - that's the last one I had before too, but I had the full dose in July and this one should be a half dose (something I'll confirm tomorrow).  I suspect I will have some side effects, but hopefully they are just short term ones.  I hope it doesn't make me regress back to the beginning, but I suspect it won't. 

Wish me luck!

@jess7, I am glad to hear that the syntonics have helped your symptoms to some capacity, and I would love to know how your vision improves with the vision therapy! I think I will ask my optometrist about how much vision therapy might cost, and will continue to do some exercises he has suggested doing in the meantime. I'll also look into the paper/dot exercise you've mentioned.

I also want to thank you for posting in here about going to a behaviour optometrist because If I hadn't seen your post I wouldn't have known about it! It felt quite good to actually get a test result back that finally shows that something is off. And that my symptoms and tendencies finally make some sense (i.e. the fact that wearing blue light glasses outdoors helps my vision tremendously!).

I've also done a VEPs test and that has came back normal as I expected. I will also keep you posted with any updated on my side 😊

@rainyday I have a host of other symptoms as well - such as "warm" spots on my legs, food sensitivities, blood sugar issues, irregular menstrual cycles, dehydration, etc. - but the head pressure is the symptom I focus the most on. 

What happens when you eat foods that you are sensitive to?  I am trying to figure out if I am now allergic to certain foods...

It causes my inflammation to flare and I experience head pressure. I can feel it come on, slowly, after eating something I'm sensitive to - like dairy. It took me a while to make the connection!

I had a thought this morning: We should all post what has helped us feel better, if only marginally, to help those who are new to this - and to give each other ideas. 

Here is what has helped me: 

Quercetin/Bromelain - I use this every day and have since the beginning. By far, it has provided the greatest relief from head pressure. I've used Vital Nutrients and Now brands, but I prefer the Now brand, as it's cheaper and works the same (if not better.) I take at least four capsules daily. I've found that taking two at a time on an empty stomach is the most effective. It takes approximately 30 minutes to take effect. 

Flonase - In desperation, I used this when I felt an episode of extreme head pressure and brain fog coming on. To my surprise, it worked! Since then, I use two sprays in each nostril as needed (only once in a 24-hour period) and it provides relief every time. It takes approximately 15 minutes to take effect. 

Xyzal - This also provides effective relief from head pressure. However, it makes me tired and groggy the next day, so I only use this when I need additional help with head pressure - and I only take half a dose. I use the children's liquid for that purpose. It takes approximately 15 minutes to take effect. 

I also take a women's multivitamin; CoQ10; Resveratrol; a Glutathione, Cysteine, and Vitamin C supplement; and Vitamin D3.

As for my diet:

I start my day with SpiruTein, which has many vitamins, amino acids, and spirulina. I mix in a frozen banana and two tablespoons of flax seed with this. Throughout the day, I snack on protein bars (my favorite is the "Perfect Bar", found at grocery stores in refrigerated sections, because it has a super-food powder mixed in.) I LOVE pineapple juice for it's anti-inflammatory properties and taste, so I'll often drink one or two of these daily. For dinner, I try to eat things such as rice with beans, buddha bowls, or healthy soups (I made a "super green" soup the other evening that was delicious!) I've cut almost all dairy out of my diet and have noticed improvements. For whatever reason, I have become sensitive to some foods, so I've been trying to nail down which ones are causing me to flare. This has been challenging. 

This is what has helped me so far, and I hope it might help you, too. However, I am still trying to recover, and I'm always looking for suggestions as to what could help. I'm looking forward to hearing what has helped others!

This is a great idea; however, it'd be great if we could also add the symptoms we currently have and what we've for now recovered from.

This'll give some idea of who's taking what supplements corresponding to their symptoms and also give hope on what symptoms one can hope to get rid of someday!

The worst symptom for me is head pressure and the resulting brain fog. I will experience a wave of sudden and (at times severe) pressure at the back of my head. I assume this results from inflammation and/or swelling within the brain. My understanding is that antihistamines (like Flonase and Xyzal) provide relief due to their ability to suppress an overactive immune system and reduce the subsequent inflammation. 

I also struggle with weakness and fatigue that keeps me from being able to partake in any physical activity - even walking - for more than ten or fifteen minutes at a time. I haven't found anything that has helped with this.

I have a host of other symptoms as well - such as "warm" spots on my legs, food sensitivities, blood sugar issues, irregular menstrual cycles, dehydration, etc. - but the head pressure is the symptom I focus the most on. 

Hope that helps! 

👍

It'd be great if everyone shares their bit, might help someone.

I cannot share as I am not taking any supplements or herbs at the moment. Too scared to try anything after the Neurologist messed with my heart by giving me an anti depressant. I've been more sick after that.

Maybe I'd gain some confidence to try some supplements if it has helped anyone to feel better with their symptoms.

yes I too have black spots in my vision. Am trying to see a neuro opthamologist but have to be approved and he’s booked up until end of April unless it’s an emergency and his nurse  said I’m not an emergency when I told her my symptoms. Really??? I’m so sick of docs not taking us seriously. I can’t drive because of my problems and that’s an emergency for me. Geez.

OMG!!! Just read what myself included are going though just because Pfizer rushed through the vaccine and got “emergency” use allowed. I’m not an antivaxer, but I am a ten month long side effects suffer and am totally disgusted and appalled. I took the vaccine in good faith and have lost my health as a result. Can’t drive due to vision problems and have a stack of medical bills while the billionaires get richer and richer. What’s wrong with this picture? We all know but other than us who cares. I’ve had it!!! If I’m kicked off of this forum that only adds insult to injury and maybe the antivaxers are right after all. Believe me I don’t want to go there but…

I agree with you. I think that as we were guinea pigs in an experiment, doctors and scientists still don't have an answer for any treatment and are far from reaching that because they don't even admit that the diseases are in fact because of vaccines.

I also lost my job. They were making me take the second jab and I with all the side effects I've had am not quite CRAZY to try again just to keep my (piece of sh*t) job. And now I don't know what to do, I just know that I won't even get handcuffed go get second shot.

Also quick poll.. Anyone worse today than usual?

 

I'm in the UK and I have felt more drained today. (And I bet I can guess what you are thinking which prompted your question!) 😉

I just thought you might be interested to know that rather strangely the last few days I have become very static. My hair makes a very loud crackling noise, keeps standing up on end and I keep getting little shocks when I touch stuff. I will point out I have changed absolutely nothing in my diet or changed my daily routine so I find this a very peculiar phenomenon. I'm a stay at home mum currently battling Pfizer jab side effects and lately I haven't left the house apart from to do the school run. Utterly bizarre.

This is interesting and very curious you mention this because it is precisely something I have been studying and is a theory I have regarding post-jab impacts...

We notice this with my wife. Some days she becomes so static that she shocks everything. One of my theories I am working on is that the vaccine may be related to turning the body into more of a positive ion generator. We've been doing some experiments around here because I am already somewhat of an expert on positive/negative ions and hydroxyls. The body in a more pH balanced state seems to also have a more negative ionic slant. Man-made things are almost always positive ion generators, while nature is almost always negative ions. A waterfall, river, forest, beach, are all RICH in negative ions and this is very very healthy for humans.

Many diseases/toxins, etc, have a positive ion charge. Zeolite Clinoptilolite carries a negative ion charge, which is why it binds and cleans out positive ion pathogens in the human body. So that is another substance we're experimenting with. However I would caution - you may want to order from a company that ships it in an EMF-Proof bag. Almost everything appears to be contaminated with EMF in transit now that has an unknown but potentially attenuating effect on the performance/benefits of virtually everything.

We're also experimenting with negative ion generators. Wein makes a particularly effective unit that covers an entire room. So we're testing keeping a room saturated with healthy negative ions. This also has the added benefit of increasing oxygen uptake in the body. Keeping humidity up in a location also helps increase negative ions. Some people like boiling water for a 30 minutes a day each morning to keep the negative ions higher in the home.

One day my wife had some really odd post-jab side effects and she touched the negative ion generator and the area where the strange symptoms were she felt an electrical shock, and the symptoms completely abated. I don't have anything conclusive to add to any of this as it is an ongoing experiment we're conducting here. But I feel we're starting to get more answers than questions...

Hey I’m open to anything. Keep on a trucking. My positive ions are at an all time high. I’m just hoping   that I don’t electrocute myself. So I think you are on to something. Thanks.

@nickpaul Huh! Interesting! Are the tests extensive? The issue is that I can't call what I have true dizziness. It is kind of a feeling like I am on a boat and its moving. Like when I walk, or turn around and then turn back quickly, it feels like things are kind of moving around in a way which they haven't like before. My mom got true Vertigo 2 months post vaxx and she said everything was spinning. Mine is like when you go on an escalator for a while and then get on the normal ground and you feel off in the first few steps. But your ENT's explanation definitely makes sense. That's one doctor which I haven't been to yet. I feel like as soon as I say anything about the vaccine they stop listening and start telling me to get my second vaccine and that I have anxiety, which I now definitely do and rightfully so.

My opinion is that, in your case, supplements or medications are absolutely necessary because your manifestations are so severe. I think that the anti-inflammatory diet alone, at this moment, is not enough.

Rhythm disorders are among the few things that can be found, concrete, by doctors, they are objective elements, no one could deny them.

There is a good chance that they will be recorded on the ECG, if you have the opportunity, through health insurance, to perform an EKG while you feel palpitations. It would be even better to perform a real-time store ECG data for 24 hours (monitoring).

Also, laboratory testing of troponin during these pains and rhythm disorders can be positive (although it is not a heart attack, obviously, but another heart condition).

The big difference in pulse from the horizontal to the vertical position, it is also an objective element for doctors.

Beta-blockers certainly reduce tachycardia, would make the situation more bearable. It is not a treatment of the cause, it is only a treatment of the effects, of the symptoms, but, personally, I think it is better to take them, when the personal suffering is like that.

Also, treating pain with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, novaminsulphone or paracetamol does not solve the cause, but can alleviate the pain.

Of course, only you know what you can get in your country.

Personally, I think you could consider treatment with ivermectin (FLCCC protocol), which is known to be found in India.

A naturopathic treatment that is also very effective anti-inflammatory and painkiller is the treatment with bee venom. A beekeeper can offer you bees at minimum prices. You would need 2-3 bees every 2-3 days. Of course, the biggest concern is not to be allergic, the ideal is the administration with antihistamines and a pen with adrenaline for subcutaneous administration, in case of allergy. Ideally, this should also be a supervised therapy.

There are many movies on the internet about how to apply, it’s very easy.

Personally, I have been following this therapy for more than 5 months, to treat Lyme. It helped me a lot. It only hurts a little at the time of the sting. I took antihistamines because bee stings cause itching.

Please consider that I just want to help. I can't be sure that these remedies can help. All I can say is that something is worth trying.

I wish you could somehow find an improvement!

Thank you for your post!

Well, I did all my tests back in November and it all came back fine. 

I too agree I need to try some supplements but not sure what to as I'm having a hard time finding a treatment here.

I completed 3 months in this already and I'm hoping at least the heart issues resolve for now.

I'm very scared of everything but, I know worrying won't help. But I also hope I don't develop any disease and the rest of us too.

My dizziness sounds quite a lot like yours. The ENT is the first doctor I’ve seen where I feel he is talking the same language as the symptoms I’m experiencing. So it could also be a good route for you to try. So far, he doesn’t seem open to the idea of the vaccine being the cause. But if he can correctly diagnose what’s going on, that will be a huge help regardless. The tests have weird and wonderful names. He lay me down, stood me up, moved things in front of my eyes, etc. At the clinic today they fitted me with video goggles and recorded eye movements, blew air into my ears, and so on. I’m lucky my insurance covered these tests, they took about 2.5 hours. Clinic said tests show my vestibular system is not working correctly, especially on left side (my dizziness started day after 2nd jab). I need to go back to ENT with results to hopefully get diagnosis. Having been living with this for 3.5 months, seems a long time, but hopefully I can then start treatment with vestibular therapy. Good luck with your doctors. Btw, I accepted doctor’s offer of SSRI medications for anxiety / panic a while back. I’m pleased I did. With that aspect being ‘taken care of’ I feel like they then started believing there was a physical cause and looking for it.

I did the antibody test, on 23rd December 2021. I had 145 U/ml of  spike protein antibodies from vaccine. Virus test was negative, i.e. I have not had Covid. My second AZ jab was 8th Oct 21, first AZ was Aug  21. Based on the theory, I’d be ‘clear’ (<50 units) some time in March 2022.

@medee sorry to read you are struggling 🙁 it’s a tough road but hold on to the hope you will heal soon. Stay positive & strong.  When did you have vaccine?? Supplements good for your heart are coQ10 & garlic. Supplements that have helped me are omega 3, B12, C & D & antioxidant Glutathione. A daily antihistamine helps bring down inflammation from the vaccine too.
