I was diagnosed with Benign Positional Vertigo about 20 years ago and have migraines along with them sometimes optical.  I have found that these problems get worse with vaccinations ie pneumonia and flu.  I also did find out another big trigger is usually lights especially flourescent and others in restaurants.   I used to get epley maneuver but it pulled out my neck so I won't try that anymore.  I did take meclizine periodically.   Fortunately, since covid and staying in, I have almost been vertigo and migraine free.  So am trying to decide about the Pfizer vaccine.  I want this one as I heard this one has the least amount of side effects.   It is also less of a dose than J&J as only 1/2 does compared to full dose.   I noticed that some people on here are having vertigo from the vaccine and was just wondering if any of it has subsided by now.  The problem I had before with the other vaccines was that it lasted for years.

Hello I had my first Pfizer jab on may 26 2021 two weeks later I got vertigo I am 73 female I was in good shape before the first jab was able to go to my yoga classes exercise etc now can’t do anything I went for treatment vertigo and it finally subsided but left with being like headed walking sideways feeling like I goin to fall  all the time so I trying to advoid 2nd jab

But maynot have a choice if our mayor and Joe Biden have there way we who are having these issues should report these problems to the FDA because it’s not fair.

I’ve glanced thru several pages of post trying to see if anyone has noticed a  heightened or increased sense of smell, since the vaccine shot? This is also my first time ever posting on a forum so I’m not even sure I’m doing this correct.

I too am a new member and looking for support and answers.  I received the Pfizer jab in January and February respectively.  I am an RN and would have never taken the vaccine had it not been a requirement for continued employment. I am 119 lbs and a gym junkie. I stay fit and very active. Ten days post second jab I experienced horrible unilateral aural pressure with loss of hearing, high pitched buzzing in my ear and dizziness with severe n/v. The tinnitus has remained. After these attacks I have a feeling of unsteadiness and malaise that requires bedrest. I have no idea when or where these attacks will occur leaving me apprehensive and frightened to leave my house. I have not seen an ENT, instead trying to manage the symptoms. What I have done is increased my water intake to 100ml/day and more if I exercise, eliminated all caffeine, switched to decaf coffee (hate it) and cut out all processed food, sugar, diet soda, chocolate and alcohol. I have reduced my salt intake to only 1200mg/day and this has been the hardest obstacle. What doesn't have salt??? I consume more veggies, fish and dairy but no cheese. Tracking my maros through My Fitness Pal has also allowed me to see my calorie breakdown to see which are the best calorie dense foods. Clearly, engaging in a cleaner lifestyle with better food choices will help in all aspects of life. But.......

Having just started these new dietary restrictions it's too soon to tell if these will help or go unabated. Has anyone out there implemented any of these or additional dietary limitations with success????  Would be interesting to meet and discuss.

@tagrant Wondering how you are doing now? And to let you know after being hospitalized with POTS triggered by the vaccine, my doctors had me increase my hydration and increase my sodium. When you increase your sodium your body holds onto the water, which increases your blood volume, elevated some of the POTS symptoms.

@sprice it sounds like your are doing everything you can do short of medical intervention. I too have tried all of those things. They do help.  They take time. A really good Vestibular PT made a big difference for me as well. Eventually I went on meds. Not to say this will happen to you as I went undiagnosed for many, many years.

I’m a healthy 53 year old male with no medical issues prior to second Pfizer shot.  Within days of receiving the vaccination, I nearly fell over getting out of bed in the morning.  I had severe vertigo that immobilized me for days.  I received medical attention the following day.  No other symptoms or issues except headache.  But lying down, getting up, turning my head all resulted in immediate vertigo.  Just putting bread back to rinse shampoo in the shower was dangerous.    It lasted for over three months before lessening to being barely noticeable. I did recommended exercises.  I still have severe constant headaches from the back of my neck to the top of my head. It’s been 5 months.   At first when I researched, there was nothing about vertigo as a side affect.  Just good to know I’m not alone.

@tagrant I’ve heard some people here talk about the benefits of a low histamine diet. I’ve had tingling in my legs for six months post-vaccine, and I think I might try this soon. I have a few doctors in my family, but they don’t really know what’s going on. Hopefully we’ll feel better soon! Just out of curiosity, is there anything you’ve tried that has given you some relief? Also, do you know of other RNs or doctors that had long term side effects post-vaccine? Thanks!

 I am glad to see there are so many people that are suffering from vertigo either from the vaccine or having COVID itself. My vertigo started after I got sick with COVID pneumonia in December 2020. I have had 10 bouts of vertigo since Jan. It is extremely scary to me that if not alarming that no health care professionals are talking about this. My attacks of vertigo have lasted 2-3 days at a time. I really hate that everyone else is having these issues but makes me feel better knowing I’m not alone. I hope everyone feels better. Vertigo is awful and being paralyzed by it is the worst feeling.

@timo  A close friend had vertigo but not until 2 months after her JnJ shot. (Day 2 of shot she had a debilitating headache, which her naturopathic Drs think may have dislodged ear crystals.) She identified several holistically orientaed Drs including a chiropractor and an eye Dr, and did eye exercises, look natural meds etc Cost her a fortune but it cleared after a few weeks. She does still have bouts of anxiety - has anyone experienced that?

@az777 it could be helpful for you to check out Dr Dnitri Kats at #niatonin.  Personally I had a reaction to the JnJ immediately after the shot (extreme shaking) but had researched before hand (I know I’m sensitive to meds) and had literally a suitcase of mitigation tools with me to start taking immediately after the shot - including his niacin suggestions - he has also mentioned activated charcoal with it so I took one with about 300mg niacin 4x day for the first 5 days..along with 4 x NAC, 4 gm vit C, a turmeric blend in veg juice..😂 it was a lot but it worked. I reduced things over 1 month..my blood tests are good and Dr (who is against the shots because of his patients’ reactions) said it was an excellent protocol.  One thing no one mentions - drink a LOT of water to flush this evil stuff out. Start the day with 2 lg glasses before eating anything, and a large glass between meals.… 🙏🏻

Hi, has your tingling settled down?? I had it too but it started to go after 5/6 months. I’ve been taking Vit c, vit d as I was low, omega 3, magnesium & zinc & a daily antihistamine.  Once I started antioxidant glutathione I noticed things were getting better & even the better again after starting B12.
