I was diagnosed with Covid June 24th. After 2-3 weeks I was starting to feel better, but then this constant dizziness, not vertigo, came on me and hasn’t left. It’s been 2 1/2 weeks, but seems like an eternity.  I have been to my primary care dr, and he says it is inner ear issues and it will leave with time. It’s so hard to take care of my kids with this issue. I’m assuming it is possible inflammation from Covid? The room doesn’t spin, and this feeling gets better when I’m sitting. When I get up moving around, my head just feels full and swimmy. Sometimes I feel like I’m swaying when I’m not. I did have a small bout of nystagmus, but that is better. I just feel off! I need relief. The doc said give it a couple more weeks, and then he will send me to an ENT. He didn’t do any scans, but was positive it was an inner ear issue. Like if I’m doing laundry and getting clothes out of the dryer and turning back and forth, I just can’t stand it. My head feels woozy, and I have to sit down and let things “settle.” 
Any ideas what this could be, or anyone else gone through this? It’s making my anxiety really bad.

I took the Moderna vaccine and day 1 sore arm. Day 2 sore arm extremely tired. Day 3 still had sore arm and a few dizzy spells. Fast froward to day 13 woke up extremely dizzy. I’d get up to walk I would feel very faint. Black spot would start at my peripheral vision and move inward. Then I couldn’t catch my breath chest felt tight and my vision  seem to go out of focus. Oh and I had this wom wom wom feeling in my head and sounds of crickets. I went to urgent care and heart and lungs okay. They gave me anti dizzy meds. This lasted four days on the fifth day only 3 dizzy spells but still taking meds. Still tired and weak and breathing heavy even though my O2 is at 99%. Can’t wait to get back to myself. I will not be getting the second shot to scared

update day 7 still dizzy can’t concentrate and my hard breathing won’t stop. Very frustrating

Hi ,I think I had COVID but back in  February 2020. Loss  all smell and all taste for exactly a week then it just came back . Fast forward one year on February 2021 I get my 1st jab AstraZeneca 5 weeks after getting my 1st jab I started to feel exactly how you’ve  described can’t look after my kids can’t do basic housework like laundry/cleaning even standing in the shower is a tough thing . I’ve been for. MRI a Ct scan chest XRay ECG . I’m someone who never went to the doctor and I’ve visited them a hell of a lot over the last  few months I then was sent to ENT they have said it’s Vestibule Migraine but I can’t see how as as soon as I sit I’m fine but just walking to my kitchen or backyard I’m all fuzzy headed (no room spinning) (no sickness) it’s so hard ..

This is exactly how I’ve been feeling. I got my first dose of Moderna 2 days before starting Covid symptoms. So I had covid and the 1st dose at the same time. Was referred to an ENT after 2 months of this feeling. I was diagnosed with vestibular neuritis which causes “dizziness “ or vertigo like symptoms. It goes away on its own but can take several months. I’m hesitant to get my second dose, but have heard that it has helped some. Others it made it worse. 100% see an ENT.

@bexx81 Has your dizziness went away yet?  Was there nothing that could be done?  My quarantine period was over last Monday and I've been the exact way you're describing since then.  I thought it'd surely go away by now.  My next stop is an ENT but just wondered if yours is gone by now.

This is extremely helpful. I have similar bouts of dizziness. Had one this morning when I though I could faint and might have to call the ambulance. It's somehow comforting to know that it's not just me but others are experiencing similar symptoms .. and that it'll pass with time. Wish you al a fast recovery ❤️

I had my second Pfizer vaccine and was sick the day after with chills, body aches and fatigue. Days after I still felt fatigued. Then the dizziness set in, tingling in my face, hands and arms. I was so sick, I ended up in E.R. 
After a brain scan, chest X-ray, blood work and Covid test, they determined I had vertigo. My blood pressure was was 83/38. (I had been for my yearly checkup right before the vaccine and my blood pressure was normal.) I was given a bag of fluids and they were about to release me and the bottom dropped to 31. I was then given another bag of fluids, and my blood pressure at that point was 82/41 and I was sent home.

Its been over a week and my blood pressure is still low (bottom is in low 40’s) I have been feeling so fatigued and tired. I wish I had not taken the vaccine. They tell you to wear a mask even after the vaccine that it helps protect you and I do if I do go out. Why not just wear the mask instead of injecting something in your body we know nothing about and has no guarantee of protecting you fully. Doctors can guess and diagnose you with vertigo, but they can’t tell you 100% it’s not caused by the vaccine because they don’t know enough about it. They don’t have the answers. They don’t know any more than you and I know…nobody knows! We don’t know what kind of side effects we will have months or years from now. Look how many are going without masks now and look at the rise in new cases and deaths!

Wow. I'm sorry you went through that. I agree with you 100%. Why take something not knowing what the side effects will be short or long term. For me taking the pfzier shots, now about 1 month later,  I'm dealing with vestibular issues. I too wish I didn't take the vaccine.

Hi. I have had exactly what you have described. Caught covid April 2020. Started to improve after 2 weeks then a few weeks later I developed dizziness. I’ve been seen by ENT and a neurologist that couldn’t find anything wrong. It took a year for things to get better, and luckily they have. Still not fully recovered but getting there slowly. I was also struggling to look after my kids during this time too so I totally understand. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

I'm having the exact same issue. 

The only think I can find that helps even a little is pseuodophedrine from wall mart. You'll have to ask for it.Today is day 19 for me after testing positive for covid and starting symptoms.  But the 3rd day of dizziness since testing negative. I am tempted to run to the Dr but I think it's inner ear related as well Because of the way I'm hearing the world. Muddled kinda. I'm having a Mild headache this morning though along with the dizziness. Still laying around.  Bout to take the medicine and try to get up. Good luck with your dizziness.  I hope you find something that works.

@bexx81 does the swimmy feeling get worse with drinking water?
