My dizziness is finally gone. There is hope. I battled vertigo and constant dizziness since March 25 (8 days after my first Pfizer shot).  I could turn my head but I couldn’t “tilt” my head. I hope this gives encouragement to some who are suffering.

A vestibular physical therapist solved the 2 bouts of vertigo with the Epley maneuver. Nothing helped the dizziness other than time. I did get the 2nd shot April 7th. Dizziness did not get any worse. However my left shoulder has been inflamed since. Oh well.

Hello Steve,

Glad to know you have recovered from it. Can you tell me more of what that dizziness felt like? I had viral labyrinthitis followed by BPPV attacks and even though the vertigo is mostly gone except for some mild vertigo when i roll in bed sometimes( need more epley) but i still have the most annoying dizziness. My head feels heavy and fainty and head tilting from side to side feels like the world is about to spin but then it doesn’t. Did your symptoms feel like that?

Hi @steveh 

What what your dizziness and vertigo like? Thanks for the hope. I am feeling overwhelmed. I've been feeling the vertigo since one week after my first dose. 1st dose was June 3. Still feeling dizzy and today is June 29. 

 

Did anything help? I haven't really found anything that helps. Trying toget into a doc soon but medicaid needs to come through first.

I had my first Pfizer vaccine March 10 I am still suffering to this day with dizziness. vertigo seems to be getting a little better  except when I’m going in and out of bed I still sleep sitting up .fullness in my ear and hard to focus  has gotten a little better I’ve seen medical doctor and after two months he put me on steroids for a month which did not help.  Also went to an  ENT now I’m  making an appt with a physical therapist to see if I can get some relief. It’s been four months wouldn’t wish this on anyone forget getting a booster
