[Sticky] How to use this forum
VeDA's online forum is a place for you to share, ask questions of your peers (i.e. other people who struggle with vestibular impairment), and gain support from a community that understands what you are going through.
This forum is moderated by volunteers, most of whom are not healthcare professionals.
If you have questions about your healthcare, please contact your healthcare provider.
If you are looking for educational resources about vestibular disorders and/or a referral to a vestibular healthcare provider, please contact VeDA's Community Support Coordinator at [email protected] or (800) 837-8428.

Rules of engagement:
Rule 1: There is no spamming allowed.
Rule 2: Personal attacks or harassment against any member of the forum is not allowed.
Rule 3: No solicitations please.
Rule 4: No degrading or putting down other websites.
Rule 5: Avoid using profanity or offensive language. Keep it clean!
Rule 6: Typing an entry in all caps can be considered rude, and is the equivalent to YELLING. Constant “shouting” will turn off other chatters. Keep the “noise” to a minimum.
How do I make posts on my forum?
You do exactly as you did here, find your thread and make a post or reply to one.
How do the stars work, meaning some people have a few while others have a lot. What is the criteria for earning stars?
This is very confusing, I had scds surgery that caused a brain bleed and am having a difficult time coping, I’m looking for similar people in hopes that there is some way to deal with this.
I apologize if this was the wrong place
@BobLaBlah I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Please contact VeDA at [email protected] for additional support resources. Thank you!
I just wanted to comment that I’ve been a member here for many months since I got my first dose of Moderna in March and experienced severe dizziness for a long time. Doctor advised not to get second dose. After hearing about new strains etc and many more deaths in my state (Florida), I decided to take my chances. I had the second dose two days ago with absolutely no side effects!!!!!
I seem to be having issues with my vision. While reading at certain times I get double vision and also when driving, while glancing left and right with my eyes and not moving my head I get blurry and double images.
Has anyone seen these issues and if so, what have you done? Thanks
Hi, I have made a couple of posts one of which was over a day ago and it's sitting on awaiting moderation. Is there something I need to do first before I can contribute to discussions? Cheers.

@lindaann hi Linda, thanks for your comments, out of interest how are you now?
How long did your wheezing take to subside?
I am having some sleeping issues as I have had these symptoms for 2 months
@andree-scollard thanks Andree, I wasn't sure whether you needed a specific post count or not. I notice a lot getting approved in the thread I am interested in but mine still sits on awaiting moderation. Is moderation turned off after a specific milestone?
@twistedgift Hi Twisted Gift, No, all posts are reviewed before being posted. Thanks!
