@margaret2022  My worst symptoms were the dizziness and strange feeling in the legs. I also had a feeling of pressure in my head but this didn’t last as long. I did suffer anxiety but don’t know if it was vaccine related or just too much worrying about the other symptoms. I quit caffeine and limited screen time and that certainly helped. I seem to be entirely over everything and so glad it’s finally over. No more MRNA vaccines for me ever again. Hope you are starting to feel better

I am writing this as I am experiencing my 4th episode of vertigo in the past few years. I have seen a few physicians and just completed a 6 week round of PT with a very knowledgeable therapist. But it still persists... I am a RN, WFPB, active person who loves to travel. Traveling on a small ship in Alaska did not leave me spinning until about 2 weeks after the trip. It is continuing after trying so many different "remedies" and seeing a couple of docs. They just don't show empathy. One even said, it will go away on its own". I still work part time and its been a challenge.

I can still ride my bike, walk outdoors (struggle) and chase the grand kids. Its difficult to work on the yard, do yoga, or laundry..ugh! Bending down might be the worst.

 

The PT person told me to go to a neuro doc and it might be my neck causing this. Has anyone else found this to be the issue and have you found a treatment? Thank in advance.

@pattybear I went to the ER a few days ago for extreme dizziness and no feeling in my legs. I panicked thinking the worst, I thought I had MS. Turns out blood work and CT scan came back perfectly fine. I know this has to be from the vaccine. I feel underwater almost, so dizzy, like I have been drugged or sedated. The sensation passes, but it's frightening when it occurs. The feeling in my legs finally came back, but it has happened a few times and I am scared for another episode to occur.

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

New here , but suffered all the vax symptoms that has been mentioned on this forum and many others , vax taken fyzer , what it does is causes a cytokine storm , chronic inflammation, body wide , what worked for me is 1. Good diet , 2. Good sleep . 3 a naturopath who does in house testing of saliva , urine and microscopic blood test , my blood was shown to be coagulating also ( micro blood clots ) . Bioceuticals that cleared inflammation and the clots 1. NKCP 2 gut inlfammx. 3 immune lymphodran. 4 concoction of herbs . Your naturopath will diagnose according to lab results. Never give up hope our bodies were designed to repair and regenerate but sometimes we need to service them as we service our vehicles. 

 

I have an appointment on the 23rd with a functional medicine doctor I can’t wait. I pretty much gave up on the GPs I mean they did order the other tests and bloodwork so now I’m hoping they dig deeper and see what’s happening with me or can help me. I hope it’s nothing bad. And it’s 👍🏼 good

@marykateeddy I haven’t been on this site for a very long time. I had a detached retina in mid November and after a vitrectomy I am finally recovering. So sorry to hear about your dizziness issues. I finally recovered but it took 18 months from my first pfizer vaccine. I was to see my gp early in November and when I told her about all the adverse effects I had she told me she couldn’t talk to me about vaccine side effects or she could lose her license. I bet there aare lots of drs out there that know there are many horrid side effects but can’t talk about it.

hello glad you’re feeling better was your procedure that caused a detached retina related to any of this vax stuff?

Hi I just discovered this site so entering the conversation.

I developed severe spontaneous and ephemeral Vertigo episodes in July. Initially they were a couple days albeit severe, with a few weeks in between. Lately duration and intensity increased.

 I recently saw an upper cervical Chiro and the X-rays show my skull is jammed on my atlas…which I suspected. All that said,I also develope Rheumatoid Arthritis about a month or so after initial vac, which only escalated in intensity after the second Pfizer.

Of course, all the drs are denying any causation from Pfizer vax.

Shortly after the first I had mild dizziness, which has become full blown vertigo. Not positional, have been to 5 specialists, loads of tests - ears, brain, nystagmatus tests, heart, adnauseum. Any one have any suggestions to alleviate all these issues? I feel like I’m at my wit’s end. Hope continued NUCCA upper cervical treatments can help.

I still need to work, and have a high-pressure job when I am working standing moving around and obviously I cannot work during an episode. 

I intuited it is coming from neck/skull, and one specialist at Mayo Clinic said the same. But…any thoughts, ideas help…welcomed. Thanks folks

Welcome to VeDA. It is, unfortunately, a common journey through doctors, physical therapists, tests and specialists for vesitublar patients. What kind of specialist did you see at Mayo Clinic?

 

There is probably no quick fix, but there are many ways to cope and manage symptoms. Be kind to yourself as you search for answers and a diagnosis. I'm sure there will be others on this forum who can offer thoughts and support. Meanwhile please read through some of the articles and information on the site.

@krmizrachgmail-com Thank you Karen.  I went to the ER as I didn't know what was happening! After a battery of Drs a NeuroPT came in and she assessed it was not BVVP, but thought the genesis was at the juncture of skull and atlas and involved other cervicals. I can see from Xrays there is a mess in there after numerous accidents. However, I have been proceeding with all the tests recommended by specialists. Last in line seems to be an otoneurologist, with whom I am waiting to see if they will "take my case" at Barrows in Phoenix. I'm reading the posts here and very appreciative of a support group as this is a whole new world to me. Perhaps my journey can serve to help others in the future. I sure hope so.

You have had quite an experience. I'm so sorry. It is often a process of elimination to find the correct diagnosis, which can be so frustrating. Meanwhile I know you are trying to get on with life. The Otoneurologist should have some insights or maybe just head you in the right direction. Keep us updated.

Hello all,

I ran across this site in the course of personal research.  I also have a vestibular type issue, possibly caused by an inner ear infection when I was a child.

With respect to the mentions of vaccination, I've written a program over the last two months or so to open VAERS to the world.  I decided to take a quick look at all instances in VAERS matching the partial term "vestib" and I think I can let the data speak for itself, with a little explanation.  This is purely the data set with terms that include vestib.  The data set with the terms vertigo and dizziness included causes the total records to increase from just over 1.5K to 172,585 records.  The larger dataset amplifies the signal for the mentioned sensations in the extremities (paraesthesia).  There is a significant number of these records (32.5K out of the 172K) that reported a patient outcome of an ER visit, higher than the number of clinic visits by 7.5K.  This does not happen in the purely vestibular dataset however as dizziness or vertigo is a more general term; in the smaller set simple hospitalisations edged out clinic visits 600 to 500.

There are about 780 thousand records for the COVID19 vaccines in VAERS at current count, so the signal is small (0.2% of all reported adverse events containing a vestibular specific symptom, which is still not insignificant), but its worth noting that not just COVID19 vaccines contain reports like this, although they are by far the most common.

If anyone is interested in looking at the data in detail themselves, I can refer them to this link to be able to review the VAERS data themselves (if you're adventurous).
