Why do I have dizziness after COVID – 19 vaccine?

As COVID-19 vaccines continue to rise, we are seeing patients arrive to our practice with side effects of dizziness after COVID-19 vaccine, which can be common.

A common side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine is dizziness.  But there is good news, if the cause is BPPV, then this can be treated by a vestibular specialist!

In many individuals, dizziness can go away within a few days but in others, it can last longer.If the dizziness feels more like vertigo, or “room spinning sensation”, then you may actually have benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common peripheral vestibular diseases. Unlike some cases of dizziness that just go away on its own, the main treatment of this disease is rehabilitation therapy using canalith repositioning procedure. This can be managed by a vestibular specialist through a bedside examination and treatment.

BPPV symptoms are recurrent, brief attacks of vertigo. It is usually described as the room spinning for a short period of time.

Most recently, a medical study by van Damm et al examined which questions in the patient history most likely lead to diagnosing BPPV.

The authors found the most reliable symptoms for BPPV in patient history are a short duration of the dizziness spell and provocation of dizziness by rolling over in bed.

Of note, the length of symptoms are less than 1 minute.

Other common symptoms of BPPV are looking up, bending over, or lying down.

To summarize, dizziness after COVID-19 can be a common side effect. However, if it doesn’t go away in a few days, then you could actually have BPPV.This may go away on its own over time, but if not, we recommend seeking professional help.

    Thanks for acknowledging this side effect. No other site have seen does, nor did my doctor when I specifically asked him about it.

      Hi,

      I have MS, and I did both AstraZeneca vaccines. After the second vaccine, my ears started ringing and I felt very dizzy, the nurses and doctor at the vaccine station kept me there for 2 hours, they let me leave only with a taxi. After a few days I went to my neurologist, she ordered and MRI. I found a herniated disk C5-C6. I don’t think it is chance that 10 minutes after the second shot I got extremely dizzy. After about 2 months, my neurologist perceived sibelium 5mg(one pill each night), this has really helped me. Speak to your doctor for advice.

      • Emily says:

        I had the exact same reaction after both shots about a few minutes later. Nausea, ringing ears and blurry vision. I was about to faint so I had to lie down. I’m not, at least consciously, scared of needles and I felt calm before and after the shots, so the dizziness came out of the blue. The same happened when I got home 40 minutes later: sudden nausea and dizziness. Maybe a stress response I wasn’t aware of?

        • Mark says:

          My. Sister came down with vertigo third week in March, 3 days after Astra Zeneca vaccine. Nine months later she has gone through all therapies mantioned here and she still has it! With waning immunity any protection afforded by vaccines is long gone.

          • Bev says:

            My mum too still has diziness 3 months after her second AZ vaccine. When I told the dr it looked to be too much of a coincidence that it happened within 24 hours of having the vaccines, she told me “rubbish”. Initially she went to a phsyio but the exercises for Labyrnthitis took about 2 weeks to start to have any effect (normally they work within 24 – 48 hours). She also shakes severely (has since the first vaccine) and gets exhausted after 20 minutes of being up. Today she is vomiting as she feels so unwell. I wish I hadn’t pushed her to have the vaccines (she’s in her 70s).

          • Laura says:

            This kind of songs like me. Mine didn’t start till a bout a month later. Never had vertigo before. I asked a pharmacist AMA he told me he had not heard of this. It’s better at times or even gone for days then comes back. I will not get the booster. It’s been 8 months now.

          • ZK says:

            Hi Mark, how is your sister now? i had the same condition. I got vertigo and worst ringing in my ears after my first dose of Pfizer’s. I end up in ER . No one believes that this is a vaccine’s side effects
            I am still dizzy after second dose in July 2021. Headache, ringing ears,weakness etc . I had NO health issues before

          • Ira says:

            Hi Bev, how is your mom now, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. Can you please let me know what treatment is taking to feel better.

          • Jean-Guy says:

            Mark – that’s me. Dizziness that hasn’t go away. It’s been a full year now and it looks like it not going anywhere.

      • Bel says:

        Hey I got dizziness after astra Zeneca too. It’s been a month. I feel like I’m on a boat. Sometimes pressure in the front of my head. Like a flu. If I stress it gets worse sometimes between my eyebrows throbs. I have felt weird since 15 mins after the job and it’s been about 33 days.

        • Clara Kanwischer says:

          It’s now been 4 months I’ve been feeling a rocking sensation like I’m in a boat or a hammock. This started 2 and a half weeks after receiving my first dose of Moderna. I’ve had a CT and MRI done with nothing noted. I’ve seen an ENT specialist and neurologist. Ear tests show nothing of note. The neurologist suspects that I have PPPD and has prescribed paroxetine which is making me feel worse for now (started prescription a few days ago). Unlike most people, my rocking gets worse while sitting or laying down and is a little better when I’m up and active, but it never goes away.

          • Claudette says:

            I have been experiencing the exact same symptoms since my j&j vaccine on October 8th. I hate it. I feel light and floaty and rocky. I do have a history of vertigo which is everything spinning around me until I puke, it’s the worst. This is different but really is making me feel afraid.

          • Jerrad says:

            Mine started a month after second moderna shot feel like im constantly movie when I walk the ground moves or like when I’m setting or standing feel like im going to fall forward and keep having fevers and face tighten on left side heart racing alot and been going on for weeks doc put me on antibiotics but no good still feel dizzy and like everything moving when I’m not im scared im going to die I can’t take it much longer dint know what to do plus keep having feeling like I’m going to have a stroke and a heart attack don’t kniw what to do can’t take it im scared please some one help me please

          • Leanne says:

            I have the exact same thing. It started after the 2nd dose of astrazeneca, and 2 weeks after, I had mine in June and im still suffer with the bobbing/floating sensation. It’s horrendous, I just need my life back

          • Carol Strickley says:

            I was prescribed paroxetine for a different reason, and let me give you a heads-up – I started having horrendous nightmares. My dr weaned me off it and no more nightmares! Just prepare yourself and know if you start having incredibly real nightmares it’s not you, it’s the paroxetine!

          • Michelle says:

            I had to double check cuz I thought that I wrote this comment.. exactly my experience after Pfizer! Thanks Pfizer for ruining my life and covering up!

          • Joy says:

            I had an episode of dizziness and a numbness in the mouth about 30 days after my second shot of Pfizer I have had blood tests and am booked fir an MRI next week I have had a tension headache ever since the first shot May 29/21

          • Dominique says:

            Clara,

            You sound exactly like me!!!!! To a t! I’ve had dizziness just like yours and went through all the same docs and tests and diagnosed with Pppd. But I think it was brought on by the vaccine. Would love to talk to you one off if you can?

          • Peter says:

            Just some of my thoughts:

            I had my booster shot yesterday (Moderna). I felt vertigo later in the day. The vertigo happens if I move my eyes to one side or when I move around.

            I went for a swim this morning and I was physically fine as far as swimming goes. I still have the feeling of vertigo when I move my eyes around.

            The vertigo seems to be just a side-effect and whereas it makes me feel like I’m not up to doing much, I can do things if I set my mind to it.

            I felt OK to drive short distances. I still managed to evade a speeding motorist coming in the opposite direction around a bend of a narrow road. I’d think twice about driving on faster roads until the vertigo settles down. It may impair my judgement.

            I’m avoiding alcohol right now. I suspect that alcohol can reduce the ability of the bodies immune system to respond to the vaccine. Not what I want right now.

            I’m 64 years old, physically fit, and open to offers :).

          • Rhonkybb says:

            I had symptoms for 3 weeks after the second Moderna shot in April. Dizziness, sleepiness, brain fog. Twice I wanted to go urgent care for anything to make me feel better. It affected my job, but I never took off work. I’m still trying to find answers. Needless to say, I’ve not gotten the booster and if I go anywhere, I wear a mask. Flu vaccine is a no-allergic to the protein.

          • Laura says:

            I have had the exact same issues. The only thing I have done that has had actual success is acupuncture and herbs. I went the western doctors first and no one could give me any answers- the one wrote me a script for vertigo where the first side effect was death. I had 0 health issues before this. Please try acupuncture and the herbs- the herbs mostly. But it was also nice to speak with someone who would listen and not just dismiss me with a prescription for something I do not need

          • Leonard Lee says:

            I got the booster at 3 and at 12 a.m. I woke up to use the BR and got dizzy. Still dizzy 7 days out. Dr. appt tomorrow. it gets worse if you stop and sit. better when moving

          • Mahi says:

            Oh my god that’s exactly me. Im 8months into it and along with it Inhave extrunad balance issue too. Started after 4 days pf vaccine after severe dizziness attacks.

          • ZK says:

            Same here, since July 2021. I feel like i am in the boat when lay down. Please let me know if any one here feel better 🙁

          • Alyssa says:

            Hi! I’ve been imbalanced and dizzy for 6 months now. I got the Pfizer shot and not doing good at all I recommend not taking the vaccine for anyone 🙁

          • Sabah says:

            Hi Clara, I have the exact same symptoms as you after getting my Moderna 2nd shot September 2021 and have been diagnosed with PPPD. How are you feeling now? I’m still on the boat, and just started vestibular rehab

          • Ira says:

            Hi Sabah,
            how are you feeling now , my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. Can you please let me know what treatment is taking to feel better.

        • Elizabeth clipson says:

          I had severe vertigo after my 2nd jab. Much improved but do get that feeling turning over in bed and sudden movements. My ears feel as they need popping all the time. Should I have my booster

          • Maureen Gartland says:

            I had exact same. I ended up in emergency. I, too, am wondering if I should get the booster. Don’t want to end up like that again.

          • Leonard Lee says:

            I was fine before the Pfizer booster. rocking, headaches, can’t look up or down. It been 7 days. going to the doctor.

          • Robin says:

            That’s exactly how I feel.. been to ER twice cause I thought I was going to have a heart attack… to s of tests , everything was fine… I am going to have a stress test next… my ears are so bad.. have to pop them several times a day…

          • carole says:

            I wouldnt have had the booster if i had read all these comments first. Had the booster yesterday and had a bad vertigo attack in the night ,still feeling dizzy and flue like. Didnt have this with the other vaccines

          • Audreyob says:

            I have had the 2
            PZ VAX and 2 boosters.. last booster about 5 weeks ago. NEVER had ANY reaction to shots at the time, but now, for past 3 weeks, have had days of dizziness about 6-8 times! Completely unusual… did have mild vertigo, starting 10 years ago, at age 75. But only once or twice a year. Could this recent bout of frequent vertigo-like symptoms be a result of the vaccines? I have had a brain scan AND a CT scan, with no indication of problems. Hoping it will go away!!!

          • Physiofit says:

            Audrey,
            Sorry to hear about your dizziness! We are finding, in some cases, dizziness is a side effect. The good news, in ~50% of cases, this has been shown to instigate an underlying peripheral condition, known as BPPV. This can be treated by a vestibular physical therapist.

            Unfortunately, in another 50% of cases, this isn’t the case, which means prognosis is harder to hypothesize.

            Good luck!

          • Susan says:

            I had my Moderna booster two days ago and still feeling dizzy and exhausted.
            I also feel my ears need to pop. Today is a bit better, I could bend over to get the clothes out of the dryer without falling down but stairs are hard. I’m hoping this passes, I don’t want to fall.
            I hope everyone else feels relief soon. This does effect quality of life and doctors need to acknowledge it, to start.

        • Dannii Cutmore says:

          I had Astra Zeneca 8th May. 4 days later an acute spell of spinning vertigo but ignored it, then a week later I had another one and ignored it, a week after that another one that induced a panic attack and ever since then I’ve had rocking on a boat sensation and severe anxiety. I was diagnosed with migraine induced PPPD back in September and the audiologist I spoke to at Harley Street said he is seeing this ‘commonly’ presented in his clinic following vaccines. He told me to get vestibular rehabilitation therapy and advised I take vitamin b2 and magnesium supplements but to be honest they’ve not done anything. I’m scared to take SSRI medication because anxiety symptoms could increase when you first start taking it and to be honest my anxiety couldn’t get much worse! I can’t work, I can’t even sit upright to eat because I’m more dizzy when I’m sat or stood still. So I have to sit on an exercise ball to eat meals. I’m better when I’m sat on something that’s moving. This is no life

          • sherri says:

            You sound like me. I already have chronic pain and then I needed foot surgery. I got the booster for covid and flu shot to be safe since I’m a special ed teacher and I ended up with this vertigo thing. It’s been terrible. My friend had it, too, a couple of years ago and her doctor suggested motion sickness meds. It has helped me some. I’m going to start PT for BPPV this week. Now I sit here with all of this anxiety and depression as I add another chronic problem to my list. Ugh.

          • Joyce Medwin says:

            Dannie, After my second Astra Zeneca vaccine I started having nose bleeds, after the first one I had four in 36 hours.
            The Vertigo was to follow. I have had eleven Vertigos starting the 16th August to the 21st December. Since December I have felt very light headed twice as though the vertigo was coming on, but luckily it didn’t develope.
            The Vertigos I have suffered have been dreadful, everything spinning , losing my balance and being very bilious, lasting several hours on times.
            Before the vaccine I have been very healthy, not on any medication at all.
            It was good to see a Harley Street specialist recognising the connection with the vaccine.

        • Marilyn says:

          I received two shots of Pfizer. I got vertigo at the second shot and then got the booster. It’s been three months now and the vertigo is just as bad as ever

          • Vicky says:

            I did Pfizer for my 1st and 2nd shots no problem then I did the Moderna for my booster shot and 3 weeks later I am experiencing all the symptoms mentioned on these posts. Mine comes and go, sometimes bad and sometimes lite but always present. I’m looking for a more natural way (herbal) if possible to deal with my side effects as I refuse to have western medical treatment. Reading from everyone’s post medical assistants makes things worse. It is good to know I’m not going crazy or making it up, so I’m learning to manage this symptom along with the covid my way. Good luck to everyone on this site suffering in silence May you all find a cure🙏🏻

      • Rudina says:

        I did my first Pfizer vaccine and 3 weeks after That , when I was supposed to get my 2nd one I started feeling dizzy, couldn’t roll my eyes, And even with my eyes closed when laying down, I had this feeling of the room spinning. I am waiting for these symptoms to go away and I have postponed the vaccine until I discuss the matter furtherly with a specialist.

        • Tracey says:

          I had the same thing about 10 days out. Could not even stand up. The worst of it lasted about 16 hours but continued on to a lesser degree when I would try to roll over in bed or move suddenly. Good luck to you.

      • Ajith Joy says:

        Hi can I have you contact number. I got similar symptoms, also Imbalance and Drowsiness after the vaccination. Its been 2 months since 2nd dose, but my symptoms are still bad.

It’s also when I bend over or get up. It’s awful at work. I almost fell over and fell against my Promethean Board in front of the kids. 🙁

        • Ira says:

          Hi Ajith,
          how are you feeling, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. Can you please let me know what treatment is taking to feel better.

      • Meagan Haar Dodes says:

        I have MS too and after my booster shot (about 15 min) I got a very brief but strong dizzy spell. I went back inside the pharmacy and told them. They gave me water and a mini snickers bar. They said it wasn’t an allergic reaction because I was fine after dose 2. I was sick for three days after dose two, but those were side effects.

      • Ira says:

        Hi Gus,
        how are you now, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness.

    • Dominique says:

      I got the J&J vaccine in March 2021, starting beginning of June I noticed rocking on a bow and swing feeling when I would lay down it started out light but has since gotten worse it’s now December 2021 I still have it. I’ve gone to an ENT thought that I had loose crystals in my ear did five sessions of physical therapy it did not help got referred to a neurologist he said I have PPPD I’ve try to an anxiety medication some days I feel like it’s going away and then boom it hits me out of nowhere, my anxiety and panic attacks have increased more than ever now and a single mom of three kids with no help I work full-time and this is debilitating for me. I’m definitely scared to get the booster shot now. I just wonder if this will ever go away honestly felt like I was going crazy got to see I’m not the only one.

      • Sasha says:

        Hello,
        I am exactly on your shoes. I am having the dizziness and buzzy head with pressure in the head. ETN said I have eustational tube dysfunction. I am also arranging to see physiologist. Let’s see what he will say. Any improvement on your case since then?

    • Martin says:

      I’m 10 days into the jab and have chronic vertiigo/dizzyness….started with ringing in ears an hour after the jab. Doctors can’t explain why, but claim nothing to do with jab!!! Can’t believe what’s going on. Hoping that your symptoms got better over time???

      • Amanda Hanner says:

        I experienced vertigo after my first shot. Second shot and the vertigo was so much worse. I am eligible for a booster now but I don’t want to get it.

    • JMann says:

      These Covid vaccine experiences are not “scientific.” Mainly subjective and personal; a data base of one. So docs pretty much have to limit their response. That does not mean the symptoms/experiences are not valid! My take on all this as a personal “white crow” with various immune system glitches, is that the Covid19 vaccines trigger a massive body-wide immune system response. This is an alien invader. Symptoms of all sorts can occur which may seem unrelated to any normal disease . . . or it may initiate disorder/disease normally quiescent. Allergies, IBS, anxiety related, Meiniere’s, name your favorite. I had significant (to me) reaction to the first shot and delayed the second for several months to restabilize. My allergy doc scared me into taking the second shot. Was dizzy for about an hour following but made it home. A few weeks later had a big-time vertigo attack in bed when flopping over left to right. Whew! Nausea, out of comission. Found the Home Epley Maneuver on line. It worked for the vertigo but is not a total recovery. Takes time, patience. Strange experience. To conclude: science cannot measure this stuff. We “white crows” have to bear the brunt largely on our own and it doesn’t always make a lot of sense. Patience, don’t panic, don’t give up. J. Mike

        • jmann says:

          One additional element I do not see here is chronic sinusitis adding to the confusion. My allergy doc (above) diagnosed and treated me for allergy triggered chronic sinusitis. Helped significantly; plugged eustachian tubes can cause these dizziness symptoms but not the vertigo (spinning) symptoms. Sinusitis can be infection triggered as well.

      • jude says:

        i got the vac 6 months ago…i’m so off balance…i went to a specialist who treats BPPV, i had my chiro do the vertigo head moves, as well as a massage therapist, and ALL to NO avail..
        my MD gave me a script for antidepressant and ativan, again, to no avail. – a bandage..$2,000 later, and it hasn’t improved at all…this week i’m going to a NP doc, and can only hope for some relief….the problem is, is that it’s VERY costly to see the specialist…a few times i puffed pot, and got some relief … my life is ruined after two vac and the booster…jude gf

      • Sophie Nutt says:

        I agree with what you are saying!
        I experienced similar symptoms, after having my 1st Covid Vaccine on 16th April 2022. The night of the vaccine had a very sore arm and felt sick. Then The day after, I had an attack of severe dizziness and it hasn’t gone since its horrible.. talked to my doctor and she is going to do some blood tests but don’t feel like I have been taken seriously!
        We have to deal with this horrible side affect with no real answers 😪

    • John says:

      I FOUND A SOLUTION. First of all, the problem is called BPPV. Search for it on youtube and you’ll find videos called “Epley maneuver to treat BPPV” and you’ll find several videos. You might have to do a different maneuver depending on which side triggers your dizziness.
      Second, I had dizziness a week after the first pfizer shot, and yes, its like healthcare workers are under some kind of ultimatum, that they cant say anything that would scare people away from taking the wax. They cant admit any kind of negative side effect.
      I went to the specialist, and even they said “they see no connection between the wax and bppv”. Yeah sure, what a coincidence that for 3 decades I never had this problem, just right after the wax.
      They gave me instructions for a maneuver which was completely useless, and prescription for some medicine, but now that I knew its BPPV I searched on youtube and I solved my problem in 5 MINUTES!! They were ready to put me on medicine for who knows how long. The only reason Im better is because I was smart enough to find a solution on youtube.

      Anybody reading this, please spread the word to all the people commenting here, I cant post a comment to every single one of you. This BPPV nonsense can end your life and no doctor is willing to help, its an insane world we’re living in today.
      Just search for BPPV treatments on youtube and you’ll find several maneuvers, you can solve this horrible problem in like 5 minutes!!

      • Physiofit says:

        Thanks for the response John. Yes, we do hope anyone who gets these symptoms have a specialist check them for BPPV. It could be a quick solution like yourself or may involve other canals. We just helped someone in the office this week with it!

        • Val says:

          I had dizziness after my Moderna booster shot . 1 day after vaccine. Tried to get up in middle of the night and was so dizzy that I almost feel down. Room spinning. Went on for three days . I called the Dr and she said I was dehydrated and to drink more water. I found out about BENIGN PAROXYSMAL
          POSITIONAL VERTIGO (BPPV) On this site. I did some investigating and found a site that gives you the directions to do some simple exercises in your home on your own bed. My husband walked me through the steps. I found out my right ear was the cause and did the exercise for that side. After just one time of doing the exercise I am now free of the dizziness and feeling of nausea and falling down. It is amazing not saying it is cure all for everyone , but worth a try to see if it helps.

          • Physiofit says:

            Val,
            Thanks for sharing your story. THIS is the exact reason why we wrote this blog 🙂
            You just made us very happy and I hope this can help others!

            **Others, if you try techniques online and do not have success, don’t give up. I would recommend seeing a local vestibular therapist near you. There are reasons why the techniques and maneuvers do not work sometimes or you have an issue in another canal!**

          • Mary says:

            Yes. I have gone to a physical therapist to have the Epley movement that you referenced. VERY helpful. I had vertigo 3/9. Awful. Not sure if it’s vaccine related. But got booster two days ago and experienced more of a spinning dizziness than flipping around ( vertigo). It seemed to get better after being up for a while, but went to therapy anyway. Feel better now. Someone said it feels like being on a boat. Good description. Try Epley. Pills did not help me at all

      • Jane Donovan says:

        Vaccine dizziness is not the same as BPPV. Inner ear crystals are not out of alignment and it will not help in this situation.

          Hi Jane,
          A pathophysiological process could occur to cause sensitivity along the otoconia and present with symptoms associated with BPPV, which could lead to solutions for non-vaccinated BPPV (which there are many causes of this condition including degenerative and trauma). Read the updated end of our blog showing new research as this information emerges. BPPV treatment doesn’t help everyone but could help many.

      • Janice says:

        Same symptoms after a supposed blow to the head in sports . I believe the minor concussion may have triggered the response. I have read that the heart and brain swells some from the shoe. That doesn’t usually affect anyone who does normal activities, but athletes get their heart rates and brainwaves up to elevated levels so the vax may be worse for them . Of course everyone just blames the concussion. No one really knows, but I believe this horrible nausea and dizziness is triggered feom the mild concussion and now won’t subside. Anyone else?

    • Sherri Bode says:

      Mine either! I had my Covid-19 booster shot and influenza vaccine on 11/12/21 and randomly a couple days before a foot surgery on (12/8/21), I woke up with vertigo and have been having frequent issues ever since. I have never ever had this in my life and I am 48 years old. The only think I can think of is my Covid vaccines or maybe my TMJ problems since I have significant issues and have had 3 jaw surgeries.

    • Massimo says:

      So we all magically now have BVVP after taking the vaccine. What about the blood clots, brain tumours, tremors and seizures. Are we just deemed those illnesses too after taking the vaccine, that may or may not go away?

    • Charlotte Perry-Hultgen says:

      Yes. I after Moderna Booster had adverse reactions. Chills, tired, low energy, headache and fever of 102 for 3 days. On 4th day spinning sensation and dizziness and off balance, unable to feel safe driving let alone walking. At 1st as I’m 74, thought I was experiencing a Stroke. After a week of dizziness, saw my regular doctor who diagnosed me with vertigo….prescribed motion sickness over counter tabs (Meclizine) and an antibiotic as my left ear looked red.

      Glad to see this article & research reach others. I’m in 3rd week post booster & my dizziness is still with me although not as often.

    • Visitor says:

      I’m currently experiencing this side affect. It’s been 6months and still have it. I’ve been to 15 different doctors including specialists and none of them will admit this side effect. All they say it’s depression and anxiety. I call BS …more people should speak up.

    • Aniema A Udofa says:

      This is is prevalence. Other issues are sudden rise in blood pressure, tiredness. Difficulty sleeping and staying asleep. I hope that IS government will officially acknowledge these side effects though the vaccine manufacturer are helded harmless.

    • Ira says:

      Hi Everyone, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. She is extremely sick. Can you please share your suggestions and let me know what treatment works.

    • Dr D O’Brien says:

      I have had four Covid19 vaccines 3 Pfizer and one Moderna. After each I have had pronounced lightheadedness and ongoing lightheadedness since the first one. It is not constant but would be noticeable daily, pronounced when rising from sitting or lying That is in all for over a year.

    • Physiofit says:

      In most states, you can see a vestibular physical therapist without a physician referral as these trained therapist can perform a full evaluation and if BPPV, the first line treatment is canalith repositioning procedures. Other doctors are ENTs and even some chiropractors do it.
      Hope that helps!

      • Judy says:

        I am already unwell so now that i had the Pfizer vaccine and am experiencing vertigo my life has become unbearable i cant even look after myself im all alone too scared to shower in case i fall i cant carry groceried up my stairs im hungry dizzy and tired. But most of all angry and helpless. My doctor cant help as the medication isnt covered i cant afford it. He doesnt know about ne getting tge 2nd vaccine he said its a risk i have to decide on taking. So next time you wamt to tell people to grow up (previous post from an idiot) have some compassion and realize you are NOT a doctor and the vaccine has no previous studies done no one made you judge and jury. If you dont like what people are saying then bugger off.

        • Judy says:

          I suffered very extreme vertigo that’s the words the emergency doctor used after my first Pfizer vaccine was 6 days using wheel chair then not steady on my feet staggering for months after .also memory issues and tired almost 6 months and still issues now I am told I have to take the second vaccine if I want to be able to have a passport .this is crazy I was a healthy person no issues and now have to risk my health because government says I have to volunteer to take it .
          Even though my doctor advised me not to risk taking it because I could have more longer lasting issues after second dose .

          • Lucy Marhefka says:

            l had Phyzer booster over a month ago. Since then I have been Vertig like symptoms of Vertigo, spinning, way off balance, etc. Please guid me to a type of medical doctor or therapist who can help me return to normal.

          • Physiofit says:

            Lucy,
            I would recommend looking up a vestibular physical therapist near you. Ask if they have seen these type of symptoms post-booster or vaccine.
            Good luck.

          • Ajith Joy says:

            Hi can I have you contact number. I got similar symptoms, also Imbalance and Drowsiness after the vaccination. Its been 2 months since 2nd dose, but my symptoms are still bad.

          • Barbara Fischer says:

            I too have dizziness after shot. Caught myself against wall a couple times but fell once…..fortunately did not break anything. Will not get second shot.

      • Daisy says:

        Hi, I’ve been experiencing dizziness, a feeling that I’m about to faint or lose balance with later on headaches behind my ears and temples abs stuff neck ever since I got my first Pfizer vaccine in July. I only had 2 weeks feeling more normal, while rest has been a horrible debilitating dizziness which keeps me in bed all day. Brand Daroff exercises didn’t help, nor Stemetil nor Serc medications… it’s been now almost 3 months like that…

        • Michelle says:

          I was also dizzy after both pfizer vaccines and have had vertigo since July. I and went to see a vestibular therapist for the vertigo as it was really bad and since I live alone I was scared I would fall in the shower etc. It helped as far as not spinning but now instead of the spinning I’m still dizzy constantly. I haven’t gotten the booster shot as I can’t imagine how much worse it will make me. It takes me a bot to get out of bed in the morning and if I get up too fast I feel like I may fall. The vestibular therapy helps to get rid of the spinning sensation but just replaced it with a dizzy sensation that comes and goes. I find it really worse in the mornings and at night.

          • Don says:

            Hi! I have been experiencing the same symptoms. I took the Moderna vaccine in April 2021,and woke up October with dizziness and not being able to walk a straight line . It’s been 2 months ongoing now.

  2. Ann says:

    I have never had bppv and had 3 boughts of it after my first Pfizer shot beginning a week after and now after my second have had it every day! I wish I had seen posts about this connection before getting shots. I never would have. This is hell.

    • Physiofit says:

      Hi Ann,
      Don’t be too discouraged!
      The good thing with BPPV is that there are great diagnostic and treatment approaches! Simple, bedside manuevers can be highly effective. I would recommend seeking out a vestibular physical therapist near you.

    • AC says:

      I have had the exact same thing with my first shot and I am ferried if getting my second one. My Dr says it’s not connected …. I think it is. And when you say it’s hell – you are not kidding.

      • Ira says:

        Hi Jay, how are you, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. She is extremely sick. Can you please share your suggestions and let me know what treatment works.

    • Jay says:

      I am suffering from the same thing. I took the first shot of pfizer and a week later out of nowhere felt like passing out and had nausea and dizziness. After 4 days it went away but then came back 15-20 days later and now I’ve been suffering from it everyday for over a month. I dont know what to do. nothing seems to help. It is hell in deed. I wish I would have never taken the shot. I had never suffered from anything like this before. Were you able to find a cure?

      • Michelle says:

        Any relief yet? I got my second pfizer vaccine at the end of April and am STILL feeling dizzy from it. I went to an ENT who ruled out an ear issue. Last week I saw a neurologist who thought I could have brain inflammation from the vaccine and prescribed steroid pills. They have not helped one bit.

        • Jay says:

          Not much relief yet. It’s been almost 3 months now and I have gone from having dizziness and nausea to having migraines almost every day. Went to physical therapy for BPPV but it seems the symptoms I have currently are red flags for not getting enough blood flow to my brain since I have been having Migraines, blurred vision sometimes, some nausea and dizziness and sleeplessness. I can’t seem to feel sleepy. I am waiting to get approved for a Doppler Ultrasound as recommended by the physical therapist to check around my neck arteries and nerves. I’m also scheduled to see a neurologist later this week. Hopefully someone can shed some light as to what is going on. I’m only 37 years old FFS. I have never in my life had any issues like this before the vaccine. I am 98% sure it was the cause and now I have to find a way to cure the damage it caused me. I pray to god It magically all goes away or someone gives me a cure already. It takes so long to see a doctor or get appointments. Hope everyone else is doing better.

          • Vicki says:

            Hi Jay, just went through the very same thing. First Pfizer shot, a week later I ended up in the ED with dizziness and rapid heartbeat. They did all the tests and everything came out normal however I felt worse than I’ve ever felt in my life. He said I had vertigo. The spinning and off balance feeling really took a toll. I had to file a work accommodation to work from home because the vertigo was so bad I couldn’t drive. After a normal brain, IAC’s & cervical MRI, multiple trips to the ENT dr and more tests, no one can tell me exactly why I had such severe vertigo. I saw my PCP, a Neurologist and an ENT. My ENT did say that the vaccine could’ve caused an inflammatory response in my system but no one else will say it. THE PFIZER VACCINE CAUSED ME TO HAVE A SEVERE CASE OF VERTIGO. I’m so relieved to see others are talking about it although I’m sorry that you all are going through this. The severe vertigo lasted 4 weeks straight, now it’s been 7 weeks since it started and I’m back driving to work and can at least function at a normal level. I’m still dizzy and off balanced most days but thankfully not as bad as it was. Start with an Ear, Nose and Throat dr, then you may progress to a Neurologist depending on how you feel. I’m about to start vestibular physical therapy and I’m praying that will help. None of the prescriptions helped, they gave me 2 prednisone tapers (steroid), meclizine (for inner ear), 2 different antibiotics, 2 different nose sprays and several different anti-depressants. NONE OF IT WORKED. The only thing that has helped is time and rest. Good luck

          • Rick says:

            Dear Jay,
            So sorry that you have had all these adverse problems since your covid ,vaccine.
            Jay from your symptoms,just maybe you may have type 2 diabetes,which can be managed by duet and exercise.
            I would talk to your doctor about this, at least it would give you some answers .
            All the best.
            Rick.

          • Mary says:

            Wow, I am reading these posts and related to all of them. I had the J & J vaccine in early July. 2 weeks later I got swelling in my legs and a tingling sensation in my 4 limbs. That lasted for about a month. Then, in late September, I got horrible vertigo (I’ve never had it before). Brain and neck MRI/MRA came out okay. I went to a PT for the vertigo and that helped. But, I still have a strange fuzziness in my head and my vision is not the same. Neurologist prescribed the steroid, which helped a little, but not completely. Next stop is the ophthomologist. THis h as to be vaccine related.

            Had my 2nd Pfizer shot in April. 2 months later in June, I got up one morning and washed my face, turned around and the room we tee into a major spin that k o led me off my feet and into my closet door, cut up my elbow and started throwing up. Went to ER, a dafter being evaluated, the Dr. said I had a classic case of vertigo. Gave me meds but they only made me sleepy. Lasted 1 week. Now here I am again going on day 10 with vertigo. Not as bad as the last time, but I still have it. Going to Dr. in a few days. Never had this ever before, and I’m 63 and healthy. I blame the vaccine. Will never get the booster!

            I have been suffering for months with vertigo never in life have ever felt this way until i have vaccinated never had balance issue never felt my body rock and as a teacher it has made me depressed. Went to the ER they said the vaccine could hav triggered In my heart gut and instinct it is the vaccine. Going on month 5 like this everyday seeing a neurologist and getting a VNG test this month my GP said Im healthy also had issues with my heart rate neverrr this is depressing and they should of warned It horrible

          • Brianna-Marie says:

            I’m facing similar issues as well, and have been for over 2.5 months now. My first major dizzy spell happened around 10:30pm on the same day I got my 2nd dose. Since then, I have been suffering from the nearly-constant feeling that I’m going to have another dizzy spell. And in recent weeks, I’ve also been having pressure-like headaches, usually in the back of my head. Really hoping it magically goes away also. I’ve already had bloodwork done, an EKG, ultrasounds on my heart and carotid arteries… No major fluid in my ears… Everything was normal. 🙁 I really don’t want to take drugs for this… I don’t take any medications and I really don’t want to start… I’m only 29! I didn’t even want to get this vaccine because I already got Covid in November of 2020 and only suffered mild symptoms (and still had IgG antibodies a couple days before I got my first dose). But of course, with everyone implementing these mandates, I felt like I didn’t have a choice but to get it. And now I’m absolutely miserable and so angry. :-((

            Hi Vicki,
            How are you feeling now, did the dizziness go, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. She is extremely sick. Can you please share your suggestions and let me know what treatment works. I can’t imagine how horrible these vaccines are. I wish i did not force my mom for covid vaccination.

          • Laura says:

            I have the same, I suffered dizziness and vertigo now I get light headed and a buzzing in my head and my ears. I was so against the vaccine but had it to be able to go abroad and live. I couldn’t go anywhere now even if I wanted to, it has ruined my life

      • Kachervian Pittman says:

        I understand exactly what you are saying. For me it seems like every two weeks… I hate this…I’m 47 y/o and I know for a fact I have NEVER been through anything like this. EVERE

          • Diana says:

            I also got the vaccine and my right leg swelled from thighs to ankle and now I have terrible dizziness I feel like I’m on a rocking boat. Was healthy before this, what do I do this is ruining my life

        • Anne says:

          After reading everyone’s comments I’m just scared. I have chronic arthritis and I’m 21. I have had vertigo in the past but it’s been years since my last episode. 1 week after my first prized vaccine I got severe vertigo and nausea this wouldn’t go away with my normal medication and that never happens. I suffered for 4-5 days when it finally calmed down. My doctor said it was fluid behind my ears but no infection. Fast forward I’ve been fine and got my second does 3 days ago and haven’t had any symptoms until tonight I feel what feels like the start of vertigo again and my heart is racing. What I guess my question is, does anyone who knows more about this hVe any answers. I’m scared it’s caused something more serious than just vertigo and need some reassurance if there is any.

          • Rudina says:

            I am 37. I did my first Pfizer vaccine and 3 weeks after That , when I was supposed to get my 2nd one I started feeling dizzy, couldn’t roll my eyes, And even with my eyes closed when laying down, I had this feeling of the room spinning. I am waiting for these symptoms to go away and I have postponed the vaccine until I discuss the matter furtherly with a specialist.Although deep inside me I wish I had never gotten the vaccine .i have never had dizziness problem, not even after Covid . I only hope this is temporary and goes away soon.

      • Liz VanWhy says:

        After my 2nd Pfizer shot, I was rushed to the ER has a possible stroke. I got admitted to the hospital for a few days and off of work for weeks. Coincidentally, I now have migraines with vertigo and carpal tunnel. The only thing that helps with the vertigo is a medicine called Effexor. I take 75 MG twice a day. If I miss 2+ doses in a row, the vertigo is crippling. I call horse shit and I know the shot did this to me. I regret ever getting it but I work in Healthcare and didn’t have much of a choice. Try the Effexor and see if it makes a difference with the vertigo.

        • Linnie says:

          I am at my wits end trying to decide which booster to get. I got a J & J shot back in April. I am overdue for a booster. But I already have chronic dizziness and disequilibrium. Have had it for 25 years. Nothing works to cure it. I am so scared an mRNA booster, which is what my doctor wants me to get, will make my condition worse. Should I just get another J & J or not get one at all. I am 74 with diabetes, hypertension and overweight. I am so scared. I don’t want Covid either.

      • Kerry says:

        I have the same thing.. I had the Moderna vaccine after 1st one 3 days after it hit me hard that was on the 14th of August this year it’s now ending October and I still have it every day

    • Brenda says:

      Our son in law’s mother has also had 3 BPPV type bouts after her vaccine. No problems at all before the vax. On the last bout she went down on one knee and then to her stomach. She was very dizzy but was able to eventually get off the floor and call for help. She was vomiting when my daughter arrived to help her. This is devastating for her husband to see. They are in their mid 70’s. This has ruined her freedom. She doesn’t feel safe driving any longer. They haven’t reported it to the CDC because like many, they don’t want to believe the vaccine would do this, but they said they will never get a booster.

      • Kim says:

        I started experiencing vertigo about 45 mins after my second shot. Felt like I was in a small boat in the ocean. About 20 hours after the shit I experienced serious joint pain all over my body, except my spine. The joint pain went away three days post vaccine, but it remained in my right hand. It becomes progressively more painful for a month. I Could no longer hold a cup or , brush my teeth etc.. I have since seen a mobility specialist and have had 2 Rounds of cortisone injections in my hand. That has helped tremendously. I have been advised that if it does not improve I will need surgery. I was informed that it is ‘ trigger finger’. The vertigo went away about a month after my shot, but it was replaced by lightheaded ness and heart palipitations that come and go throughout the day. Feels a lot like low blood sugar or panic attacks, and yet, not really/quite. I am self employed , my job is demanding. I am finding this quite stressful. I hope it goes away. Btw, my shits were both AZ. As much as I am relieved that I am not alone, it is also scary to read how real it is.

    • Godknows says:

      I am experiencing the same , exactly after 23 days after my pfizer jab I started experiencing dizziness….its really scary, I’m regretting taking this vaccine……

    • Cassidydeborah@hotmail.com says:

      I got my second moderna vaccine 4/15/21. Went to work the next day and out of nowhere got severly dizzy, heart racing and very nauseous. Had some one call 911 because I couldn’t walk or stop vomiting. Landed me in the hospital for 3 days. Stayed with a friend for 3 days after to rest and heal. It’s October now and I’m still suffering from vertigo and being unsteady. I have good days and bad days. I’ve had MRI’s, PT etc. Diagnosed with BPPV. Tried Eply maneuver and several others to no avail. Hoping this wears off soon. I own my own business, active gardener and 59. I’ve always been healthy with no issues. This vaccine needs more research and more open discussion to side affects. Mandating it is a major over reach on such a new drug. Not to mention what it cost me and my insurance to get me to feel better. Never again will I have a booster or anything close to it. I will rely on my own immune system thank you very much. Hope everyone on this site stays in touch and starts feeling normal again. God Bless!

    • Jess says:

      I always had a bad “feeling” when it came to the vaccines. I struggled so bad thinking can this potentially hurt my family if I don’t get it. What would it do to me if I got it. Living through hell most of my life being curious and experimental as I am I choose to what I thought would be protecting my family and keeping my job. So on April I received Pfizer vaccination. After each does I was down right sick. I mean sick sick. My lungs filled up with mucus , I felt like I was hit by a truck. I received a COVID test through my job and it was negative. I took medication and felt better. The first few weeks after that I felt better than I ever had in life. I’d say about 4-5 months in I started feeling just down right tired and dizziness followed shortly after. I fought through it but slowly I found my self being drained. I shut down and I just simply didn’t feel sociable. Forcing my self through work one day the dizziness just hit me like it hadn’t ever before. I was sent to the hospital my blood pressure was 155/102 I’m 26 with no health issues prior to this. They told me to turn off the news and that I had anxiety. I followed up with a doctor who was recommended to me by a close friend who experiencing things similar to me . There really wasn’t a treatment plan for anything that went wrong with the vaccine. My mind really went crazy after that. How was this looked over by as many doctors as it was said. How are kids getting this and most importantly what am I going to do ? Well I started drinking more water. I take aspirin and exedrine for my symptoms and it tends to help. My blood work is low on vitamin D so I’m currently looking for the best natural supplement for that and I’m exercising at my own pace. Some days are better than others and hot baths help me the most on worst days. I hope this helps anyone else experiencing these symptoms. It’s bitter sweet reading to know that I’m not alone but to know others are experiencing this and it’s not told to anyone before getting the vaccination is truly down right heartbreaking. God bless everyone ! Tell your neighbors. Tell your friends of your experiences and know that Americans stick together ! We will get through this & there will be better days.

      Seems like it is related. Sadly the best info available is through forums like this. I do not see anything on cdc websites about this. But I believe the cdc should address this issue.

    Your all lying no one has gotten virtigo or dizzy after the covid vacation!! You might have had a stressful week or panic attacks that triggers your dizzy spells. So stop telling porky pies and stop giving people worry like me. I asked the nurse and doctor who was there and they both said that the covid vaccine does not affect your balance at all. Also after 7 weeks your already immune after two weeks not 7 weeks of dizzy and virtigo so stop scaring others and grow up

      • KW says:

        Thanks for this. I read it and it’s not saying this was the vaccine is following an active Covid19 diagnosis. Please fact check before adding to the confusion

      • Physiofit says:

        Yes, sorry, wrong article; that was BPPV following the actual virus.
        This was meant to be sent:
        https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34267103/

        It is only a retrospective chart review — not much science with this out there — someone has to actually write it; which is why we wrote this blog as we see it in the clinic.

        The point is not to get into a spat on side effects of the vaccine — which are low but do happen — but the point is that if someone has these symptoms and they match up with the symptoms of BPPV (such as worse when bending down, rolling over in bed, etc), then this is EASILY assessed and treated with the appropriate canalith repositioning procedure.

        The success rate is very high in 1-3 sessions. We want to be able to help lead people to the right individual in their area to address BPPV.

          • Physiofit says:

            No studies to date as far as I know. I linked 2 case reports in a previous post on this site that have linked BPPV to the actual COVID exposure and that is the only piece of literature of date that I know with linkage. Possibly more to come.

            We have seen a few cases in our small practice and really helped others, hence, the reason for this post so others can seek out some answers in his/her locality.

    • Gabby says:

      Bless your heart you think people are lying after getting their “Covid vacation” just because you said so… My boyfriend and I both got the first vaccine yesterday, Pfizer, and I just told him I am so dizzy, and I don’t feel like myself. That is how I found this page googling what we are experiencing. I was fine this morning and it just come out of nowhere. I feel like things are moving when I am not, and he said he was feeling the same way. These are people experiencing horrible side effects and you tell them to grow up, aren’t you just precious? If someone has an experience to share why don’t you just shut it with the unnecessary chatter and let them share as it helps everyone who is looking for answers.

      • Linnie says:

        I am at my wits end trying to decide which booster to get. I got a J & J shot back in April. I am overdue for a booster. But I already have chronic dizziness and disequilibrium. Have had it for 25 years. Nothing works to cure it. I am so scared an mRNA booster, which is what my doctor wants me to get, will make my condition worse. Should I just get another J & J or not get one at all. I am 74 with diabetes, hypertension and overweight. I am so scared. I don’t want Covid either.

    • Angela says:

      We should all grow up and tell the truth, not hide any side effects after the covid vaccine. We all want it to be the miracle cure but the fact is there are a lot of people having awful side effects after the vaccine. I am still in bed a week after my Pfizer, I am so dizzy I have trouble walking to the bathroom. I have had covid twice and to be honest was a breeze compared to how I feel now. I know everyone is different, but people need to be aware of the awful side effects from these vaccines, I wish I had known.

      • Michelle says:

        We all wish we knew but since they’re hiding and denying the side effects how would we know? All you see is how wonderful it is there’s no adverse effects.. even tho the manufacturers and FDA insisted on having immunity so they aren’t sued millions of dollars!

    • Kachervian Pittman says:

      Sweetheart let me be VERY clear. I am 46 years old and I am pretty sure me as well as everyone else on this page would know and definitely remember ever experiencing anything like this WHY in the world would we take time to lie about something we aren’t experiencing? You are a work of art.
      My LIFE has not been the same since my second shot. Every two weeks I’m having a episode. I was completely against getting the vaccination, but I did because I wanted to and still want to trust the government. But like everyone on here… WHY after getting the shot are we experiencing vertigo (like) symptoms?

      • Sally says:

        Agree with you totally. I did not want the vaccine, did it for work and because I was tired of being made to feel it would be my fault if someone got covid around me, even though vaccinated can spread it too. Anyway, had 2nd Moderna vaccine 5 days ago, was really sick for two days with typical symptoms (body aches, flu symptoms, headache, etc). This morning I STARTED FEELING DIZZY! Ugh, I’m so mad at myself for getting it. Glad to read your post!

      • lynda Alderson says:

        I have to agree with you here. i am starting my 9th month of Vertigo and still use a walker as my balance is compromised. I am supposed to get a booster today, but am scared to death. I would give anything to be in Heleno’s shoes with no side effects!

      • Brianna-Marie says:

        I’m facing similar issues as well, and have been for over 2.5 months now. My first major dizzy spell happened around 10:30pm (while I was driving, might I add) on the same day I got my 2nd dose. I got my shot around 8:45am that morning, and by lunchtime, was already suffering from what I was calling “brain pains”. Since that day, I have been suffering from the nearly-constant feeling that I’m going to have another dizzy spell (as well as occasional minor dizzy spell). And in recent weeks, I’ve also been having pressure-like headaches, usually in the back of my head. Really hoping it magically goes away. I’ve already had bloodwork done, an EKG, ultrasounds on my heart and carotid arteries… No major fluid in my ears… Everything was normal. 🙁
        I really don’t want to take drugs for this… I don’t take any medications and I really don’t want to start… I’m only 29! I didn’t even want to get this vaccine because I already got Covid in November of 2020 and only suffered mild symptoms (and still had IgG antibodies a couple days before I got my first dose). But of course, with everyone implementing these mandates, I felt like I didn’t have a choice but to get it. And now I’m absolutely miserable and so angry. :-((

    • Tatyana says:

      You are so lucky it didn’t happened to you!! Today took my husband to the hospital he is going to stay there over night for observation. He was so dizzy and nausea he couldn’t stand up or walk I had to help him.. I was lucky I was dizzy and nausea for the fist day and 7 and 8 date after second dose of Pfizer. But let me tell you foe 8 days was a hell of pain.

    • Bill B says:

      To Helena: only a person who was lucky enough not to have experienced this dizziness and vertigo would post what you did. Why are the lucky ones frequently the most insensitive and judgmental. Sad.

    • Jen says:

      The virus and MNRA vaccines cause vestibular disturbances. No one is lying. This is not anxiety. Anxiety does not causes spinning.

    • Luna says:

      After a day or so, from my vaccine I got extreme vertigo as well. I mentioned it to my doctor and he did confirm it is a vaccine side effect for some. I just rested it off and after another day or so it went away. I couldnt stand the whole time I had it so that was not fun, but I do not regret getting the shot. Regardless it is a real side effect not anxiety or stress related.

    • Ryan says:

      What a strange and rude thing to say. I’m 43 and have never had dizziness and feelings of fainting like the in my life. I’m 5 weeks after the 2nd Pfizer shot and it’s happening more each day. I wish I never had the shot.

    • J says:

      Seriously !!! You’re calling them liars. I have this also. Just got the second shot one day later dizzy. It’s been two days and I hope this goes away !

    • Obstantia says:

      Actually, they are telling the truth. It’s horrible and it lasted (for me) several weeks. Because I’d already had Covid, the reaction to the first vaccination was stronger and lasted longer than the second vaccination’s effects. Having said all that, it’s still better than having the virus. That was truly awful, several times I was on the verge of calling an ambulance – something I’d ordinarily be loathe to do. Only when I found an online article that suggested that my fever would suddenly lift within the next 24 hrs (day 14, which it did) and that breathing would improve on day 16,which it also did) did I hold on. It’s the most scary virus I’ve ever had – it’s like being a spectator to your body’s battle with itself – and you have no control over it. No paracetamol, no water, no amount of rest makes a difference. You are totally reliant on how strong your body is and how powerful your immune system is. Fever lifts and you think you’re getting better, then bam! It’s back within less than an hour and you feel even worse. This is repeated for two weeks, with a gap after the first week when for a day or so you think you’ve really recovered, then it comes back far worse, for the second week. Definitely not like ‘flu!! So, the side effects of the vaccine, unpleasant though they may be for some, are still preferable to the virus.

      • TazmaniaQ8 says:

        Couldn’t have said it any better! This was me back in June battling the delta. I’m truly gratitful to be alive. However, I have been left with debilitating vertigo that gets worse after eating. Is there anything that helped you get over vertigo?

      • Fabbian Dos Santos says:

        I have the same symptoms, last doses of Moderna I took in August 20 but I feel dizziness almost everyday, I got the Covid19 last year in November , the vaccine side effects are worst than the Covid itself

    • Toby says:

      I found this forum because I have never suffered vertigo in my life. Two weeks after the jab I feel like a drunken sailor, I suspect the other people leaving comments have been unlucky enough to suffer this. It’s no surprise big pharma don’t publish info like this.

    • Judy A Link says:

      If you look on all the websites 10 percent of people suffer from dizziness. I am a healthy individual and had dizziness after my first vaccine. No need to be nasty

    • Kalina says:

      How dare you say we are liars! Just because it hasn’t happened to you and some doctors tell you otherwise. I will tell you THIS IS TRUE! I myself am experiencing vertigo , nausea and spells where I feel like I’m going to Black out. First time was day 3 after 1st Moderna dose . Happened a few times and wasn’t going to get second dose but decided on doing it . I’m day 6 after 2nd shot and Here we are again, felt like I was going to fall while grocery shopping and gets dizzy spells and heart palpitations! I sure hope it doesn’t persist. So please, with all due respect stop calling us liars!

      • Chantal says:

        I’m posting an update here after 3 months. I’m still dizzy though on better days i feel safe to drive carefully. In my case worse in mornings and worse if I don’t sleep well. I took my second vaccine on Jan 1st 2022 btw. First month horrendous but improving really slowly. Ayurvedic meds have helped tremendously because they support the whole body and fatigue does make dizziness worse.
        But it’s sucks. I still can’t work. I still have days where everything is swimming. I try to focus on my feet when it gets bad so that I feel where is ‘down’ and don’t rely on my head.
        I found this forum a couple of months back and I promise when I recover to post so that anyone can else looking for hope can find it! 🙂 however I found 2 people (not online) who had this too and they are ok now, tho it took 3-4mths. They also took ayruvedic meds. I’m lucky as I’m in India and could find a bonafide practitioner for this. Big hug to all of you going through this!

        • Ira says:

          Hi Chantal, How are you feeling now, did the dizziness go, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. She is extremely sick. My mom is in India too. Can you please share the ayruvedic meds names and let me know what treatment works. I can’t imagine how horrible these vaccines are. I wish i did not force my mom for covid vaccination.

    • Char says:

      I think you have to experience it to believe it. I got it 13 dats after my second shot. My mom got it 10 days after her third shot. My 7 year old is in a Pfizer study. I’m hoping she doesn’t get it. But the way I see it, with the way the vaccine works, if I’d actually gotten covid, I’d have these side effects to fight against the spikes as a minimum. It’s unhelpful to tell people they aren’t experiencing side effects when they know they are. It’s helpful to acknowledge it, study it, try to find a cause as to why some are more susceptible, and a treatment.

    • Loretta says:

      Well everyone is different. I developed chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath and palpitations. The worst lasted 2 weeks, it is still persists but lesser than it was 1 month out. I would try not to be too hypercritical of other peoples experiences. But yes the majority of patients will be fine but there is still 1% that have side effects. Have a good day 🙂

      • Janet says:

        I too had terrible gripping chest pains . But now 8 weeks later.I have a whooshing feeling in my ears and pain.feeli by like my equilibrium is off

    • Jason Stevens says:

      So you are saying that all of us are liying and the only one that’s saying the truth is your doctor? Grow up and dont talk out of your butt without knowing the facts. It has been proven by the CDC that vertigo is a side effect of covid vaccine. Learn your fact before you talk.

    • Mike M says:

      Don’t be so “know it all”! I had my booster shot one week ago and am in Hawaii I. Vacation and woke up and turned over in bed and been battling vertigo for two days now. Not made up and it may be coincidence, but never had this much dizziness in my life.

    • Tammy says:

      Ignorance is bliss. Keep your mouth shut and go find someone else to harass. We are people who are scared and experiencing a terrible side effect and looking for answers. We don’t need some little weasel putting his uninformed two cents in. Please, just gtf off here so we can address these issues without dealing with some punk

    • Michaela Rose says:

      I’m no now 100% everyone on this blog is being honest and Sense that you all regret the path you took. Because there is no going back and you all know that this is the cause.. There’s nothing you can do other than become an anti- vaccine and tell the world why? Which is your story and that you now no longer have faith on n I he vaccine, no longer trust it and you know it does more harm than good. The vaccine is un- natural so it works against your human vibe bringing out all different conditions.

      Anti-vaccine is the way forward and building on your health/immunity via, healthy eating, herbs, detox, excercise, etc will prevent Covid and or even minimise the symptoms. Do things the natural way please learn from this.. Now everyone on this blog has to deal with taking more pharmaceutical drugs which is lowering the immune system further. Vaccine is a catch 22. Don’t get the vaccine done in the first place. Fight for your right and stay healthy and pure..

      • Lindz B says:

        The majority of people are not having this reaction. It’s 10-15% apparently. for those of us who are, it sucks. But it’s better than getting Covid and dying and hundreds of thousands of people have. Hopefully I’ll start to feel better and get back to my very healthy normal, but even with these debilitating side effects, at 71 I consider the vaccine a god send. No way and I anti-vax; I have had both shots plus booster (which is the one that did it). Like I said, I’d rather have a spinning head than be dead like so many.

      • Lin B says:

        I’m having these side effects after my booster shot. It sucks. Hoping it will continue to improve, now over 3 weeks. But – I am glad I took the shots because as miserable as I may be right now, I know I’m not going to die or end in hospital. Bad luck of the draw, I had side effects. None of my friends have had any problems. Still pro-vax for those who haven’t had them and those who haven’t had side effects. Those who have, like myself, will have to consider re future boosters. The new pill form might be a better option for those like me now.

    • Maxine Fuentes says:

      I had both shots of Moderna vaccine. I had the usual reaction for about three days after both shots,
      A few days after the second shot I got vertigo. I didn’t know what to do, it did subside, however I still had a wooziness for several weeks.
      I was questioning myself, but then I spoke to my Brother who had the very same reaction.
      He just got his booster. He was fine right after the shot, but he called me today to tell me the vertigo is back. I don’t know how this could happen, however it did.
      I was excited to get my vaccinations as I’m going to be 80 soon, now, I’m very concerned about getting a booster.

    • Catherine says:

      Too many people I know personally have had this problem with dizziness including me and my two sisters. I never had anything like this in my entire life! I had the Jansen booster and about 10 days later, I had an extremely stiff neck, persistent headache and dizziness. I’m 73 years old, have no health issues and take NO meds. So, explain to me why this is happening??

    • Brianna-Marie says:

      This is a joke right?… You’re not actually this ignorant. Have we learned NOTHING from Covid?! EVERYONE’S BODIES ARE DIFFERENT!!! Just like with Covid, you have no idea how your body will react to a vaccine until you get it. People are having a bunch of different symptoms with Covid… Some (most) are totally fine and only suffer a mild cold, while others struggle to breathe, to the point where they die. Some get blood clots, others lose their senses. Etc., etc. Same thing with this vaccine! Most people are/will be fine, but not everyone is/will be, and you blatantly accusing us of being liars because we’re “scaring you”, just goes to show how brainwashed you’ve been by the media and how ignorant you are towards the concept that these vaccines (which have only just recently started being used on humans!!) could cause/trigger real issues for SOME people.

      Of COURSE the nurse and doctors are going to tell you that the vaccine doesn’t affect balance!! First of all, it won’t affect EVERYONE’S balance. Second of all, there have been essentially NO studies on the effects these vaccines have on the nervous system. Therefore, doctors can’t just come out and say that they DO affect the nervous system! Third of all, there is already so much vaccine hesitancy out there… Doctors don’t want to have their licenses retracted, or be responsible for increased hesitancy, or potentially labelled as the dreaded “anti-vax” for speaking the truth about potential side effects and/or the lack of necessity for getting this vaccine in the first place.. Especially when there is so much societal pressure and mandates for people to get vaccinated.

      It seriously sounds like YOU need to grow up, stop being so narrow-minded, and consider the fact that some of what you have been led to believe about this vaccine (that has literally been authorized for use by the public for LESS. THAN. A. YEAR) could be incorrect! We ALL deserve informed consent. But unfortunately, with the media censoring everything, deleting accounts, etc., we are not getting that informed consent and it is causing some REAL issues for people who were otherwise totally healthy before getting their shots.

    • Roger Francis says:

      I have to be honest and say that just 2 weeks after my first AstraZenica vaccine, I developed a very mild form of virtigo, more like lightheaded. Despite many tests, blood pressure, inner ear examination etc, no one has come up with an answer. I guess that I am going to live with it and despite this, for safety reasons I have had the rest of my jabs and the booster.

    • Alan Ken Hastings says:

      your wrong I’m only 17 years old and I got the phizer in August. Obviously as I’m 17 I’d never experienced this feeling. It was like I was on a boat rocking and I had a lot of nasua. It wasn’t your typical dizziness I would just be detached from reality and wouldn’t feel real. That was easing up and I felt a lot better and then I got a cold in September. I then got really naseaus from that and didn’t feel real for a month. It flairs up from time to time but I just want it gone. These past few months have been help and I just want it gone. Anyone who can relate please get back to me

    • Massimo says:

      You’re being misinformed. You’re also suffering from something different than a lot of us, it’s called wishful thinking and denial that your government and Medicare system is looking out for your best interest.

      Conversely, we ask you to stop talking against hundreds of thousands of people who are magically experiencing very similar systems after having taken the vaccine for what your spineless cowardly doctor told you so they don’t lose their job possibly.

      This is very real and still is happening for many people.

    • Kendall says:

      Wow, blind to how this effects people. Just because you do not suffer the same. I personally got this freaking vaccine because others MADE ME FEEL I HAD TO. I am a single mom and honest to God scared of getting covid. I had covid, it wasn’t bad for me. I also have heart issues/valvular heart disease—which is common and i had my thyroid removed but never in my life have ever felt the way i do now. I am 6 months post vaccine i had the moderna and i have good days and bad days. two weeks after my vaccination i couldn’t drive i felt unsafe driving me and my daughter. I had my ex move in with us for three months because i could not function! Went to the er went to primary went to ent, went to neurologist and my heart dr. …….all said anxiety. I have lived with anxiety for 14 years never in my life have i felt as if i couldn’t walk down the street without falling out……..i am lightheaded and my vision is off., This vaccine is bull shit. i tell everyone i come in contact with not to make the same mistake as me…..again a single mom and feeling as if you could fall out and not care for your child is the worst feeling.

  6. Todd says:

    I had the Pfizer 1st shot exactly a week ago. I’ve been working on installing vinyl siding on a shed in my backyard. Today I started feeling dizzy and vertigo. At first I thought I was just bending down too low. However Laying down or standing upright I still felt dizzy — albeit less. I’m 49 years old and have never felt this unexpected dizziness before.

    8 hours later I still feel this way. I don’t know if it’s the vaccine or not but others posting here is making me question it. It’s a god awful feeling and I won’t get the 2nd dose if it doesn’t improve soon.

  7. Patt says:

    Helena, As a retired nurse in neurology I can assure you that these vaccine recipients are indeed experiencing vertigo as a side effect . I had never had it untill the morning after my first shot . Now I am getting it every day . Just because you did not get it does not mean that others won’t either. Very sad that we live in such a world where empathy and compassion are dwindling. How would you feel if you had some kind of health symptom and nobody believed you and accused you of lying ? Hope that never happenes to you .

    • Jen says:

      How are you feeling? Can you explain your symptoms? Are you spending around? How often does it happen? Your input with a background in nursing would be very helpful to others on the forum.

  8. C says:

    I had the Moderna shot two days ago. It was my first. I experienced such terrible vertigo like symptoms today that I literally fell out of the truck when I opened the door and tried to step down. If I’m not sitting up completely straight, everything starts spinning. It’s not some thing that just happens for a minute, I’ve been in the shape for three hours and I’m now googling side effects. I assure you unfortunately it is real. I am a mother of four and have no time to fake or do such useless posts unless it’s some thing I’m actually dealing with. Shame on anyone who thinks anyone is faking if such things.

    • Physiofit says:

      Hi C,
      I would definitely consult with your physician and he/she could determine if it is BPPV (as there could be many other reasons…). If so, I would seek out a vestibular therapist or specialist such as ENT locally.

  9. Lexie says:

    5 days after I got my second Pfizer shot, I started experiencing bad spinning episodes when waking up in the morning and sitting up in bed. It only happened when I sat up from laying down or stood up too fast, but then got worse. 2 days later I became dizzy 24/7. I could barely walk straight or do any normal tasks. Went to 2 different doctors, both said it’s BPPV, a type of vertigo. The one doctor gave me meclizine to help with the nausea and vertigo. I’m going to physical therapy in a few days so they can try and help me get better quicker. Neither doctor could confirm that it was the vaccine that was the root of the cause. After reading all of the other comments here, I’m about 95% sure the vaccine had something to do with it. They just aren’t allowed tell us that yet. I’ve never had any vertigo or issues like this in my life. This is by far the worst thing I’ve ever had to experience. Still not feeling any better. Praying that physical therapy works. I hope you guys all find relief soon.

    • Physiofit says:

      Hi Lexie,
      Yes, we are unsure what may cause the BPPV as just speculation at this point. In some cases, BPPV just arises out of nowhere (idiopathic) and not necessarily after a specific event, such as trauma, weather change, etc.
      Nevertheless, your physio should be able to take you through a gravity dependent test of the vestibular system such as a Dix-Hallpike test and if positive, should be able to provide the appropriate canalith repositioning manuever.

      If you need any assistance on finding the right person or any personal consultation, feel free to use the picture link for telehealth consultation to get in touch with us.

      • Bill B says:

        it Is my understanding free floating otoliths cause bppv. The question being not answered is why they are free, and if the bax causes them to become free.

        • Physiofit says:

          Bill,
          Yes, we do not know that answer. Generally speaking, ~80% of the time the cause of BPPV is idiopathic — so even without the vaccine in the equation this could simply happen and not necessarily from a trauma, virus or incident.

          Possibly the vestibular nerve gets excited from the autoimmune response. This heightened sensitivity along this pathway could elicit symptoms in a system that may have underlying free floating otoliths that just simply are not a threat enough to the system to throw a neural signal to the vestibular nuclei and elicit a symptom of vertigo/dizziness.

        • Linda says:

          Same vertigo symptoms after 2nd Pfizer jab Valium has helped the vertigo most Dr’s don’t want to prescribe it but it really helps bc it calms everything down

  10. MLoukisa says:

    I’m a dentist I live and work in Athens Greece. I”be been already vaccinated in March 2021 as I”m 55 years old and I had no adverse effects whatsoever So I strongly recommend my children to get vaccinated… My son has been diagnosed with Covid last October having only loss of smell and taste as a symptom nothing else.
    Nevertheless he had the 1st shot of Pfizer on the 8th of July After 2 weeks the vertigo started .. He has been seeing an ENT specialist He visited hospital ENT doctors and neurologists .. He had a brain MRI done and expecting results in a couple of days ..the pills against vertigo helped a little! I”m very worried as none of the doctors mentioned the vaccine!!! Most of them are unaware of this !! I”m deeply disappointed …

    • Physiofit says:

      It appears there are some side effects that do involve vertigo / dizziness but due to the nature of what is going on, healthcare providers cannot firmly contribute it to the vaccine at all.
      Nevertheless, I hope your son gets relief! If the pills aren’t working too much and MRI is unremarkable, I would definitely recommend looking into BPPV, which is a peripheral disorder. A physio or ENT over there should be able to confirm the suspicion with a detailed history and bedside examination.

      • Cath says:

        Hi Mel, I had my Pfizer on 3 July and have had the same journey as you. My GP put me on antidepressants as tried to tell me it’s anxiety related. I am not convinced at all and am asking him to keep investigating. I’ve had blood tests and MRI but nothing to pin point as the issue. I think I will start a Facebook group so that we can share our experiences and whether anything works, such as physio . It’s so important that we share these experiences so that we are not alone dealing with it.

        • K says:

          Hi Cath – I would join this Facebook group if I could find it. What is the name of it, please? I have been dealing with BPPV and now 5 months of ongoing PPPD (Persistent postural-perceptual dizziness). My severe BPPV vertigo began 9 days receiving my CV vaccination in the beginning of March 2021. Most medical professionals, including my ENT and neurologist discredit the connection to the vaccination. However, my Naturopathic Doctor is very clear that this is true. My life has been changed and I have learned how to accommodate as best I can. I miss my active life and remain hopeful that this dizziness and PPPD shall pass at some point.

          • Don says:

            Hello,
            I received my Pfzier vaccines on 11/4 and now I have constant debilitating vertigo. I cannot function: shower, dine out, sleep very little. It’s so horrible! I have been to an ENT who wants to do a MRI/MRA with constant (highly toxic). I do not know what to do. It sucks!!! Anybody have any input or where I can get help. I do want to get any dizzier through vestibular testing which causes people to get dizzy to find out a diagnosis. Ugh!

      Hello , So sorry to hear about your son . My 40 year old son is now in hospital two weeks after his second pifzer vaccine . Extreme vertigo he was falling down like a sack of potatoes . He has undergone Ct and Mri scans , ultra sounds etc . He really cant take anymore . He is on an IV and injections in his bottom that had him screaming and wanting to sign himself out of hospital . He can walk only two steps , he is ok lying down . Doctors are afraid tosay it was caused by the vaccine . He was a fit healthy young man before that vaccine .
      Goodness knows who can help him now .

  11. Mel says:

    I had Astrazeneca jab on July 3, and after suffering dreadful headaches , aches pain and total fatigue and a weird feeling in my eyes from the light during daytime, for a week, then the dizziness and nausea started.. The aches and pain dissipated after 2 weeks but the dizziness and nausea and heavy feeling in my eyes and head remained for another 3 weeks. At week 6 my eyes felt ok and the dizziness and nausea are decreased but still lingering on. I was healthy and fit prior to having the jab and really concerned that this feeling of dizziness is going to persist . Not looking forward to the second jab, but know its essential that I have it. I am 70. My son had the Astrazeneca jab one week ago and is now experiencing bad dizziness, sore eyes and headache. He has just gone for blood tests but results are not in as yet.

      I have had the same side effects 5 days after the AstraZeneca jab the room started to spin I’m now on day 20 I’m trying motion sickness pills no longer getting vertigo but still feel dizzy I’m 67 years old my wife is 72 she is fine I’m spent hours on the web not found any recommendation for the treatment of these symptoms its almost like the powers that be are hiding something

      • Physiofit says:

        Hi Johnson,
        Does rolling over in bed provocate your vertigo (i.e. room spinning)? Does it last about a minute?
        If so, could be BPPV. I would definitely recommend seeking out a vestibular physio near you to examine you.

    Today took my husband to the hospital he is going to stay there over night for observation. He was so dizzy and nausea I had to help him to walk.

  14. Janet Cervantes says:

    So glad I found this website. I was looking up side effects from covid vaccine & found nothing about dizziness til now. Please don’t judge me for being naive but I actually got a 3rd shot that kicked my butt!!
    My 1st Pfizer Inj was in March that caused me to get really tired that evening. 2nd inject was May 3rd, no big deal, my arm was just real sore for a few days. For some reason I can’t find my card. I figured Kaiser would have a record & I’ll print that, only to find out they didn’t have a record of my 2nd shot on my record. I ended up having to go to the clinic to speak with a manager who said they have me as a no show & only way I could get a card is to get another injection to update my records. I asked her if it would be ok since my last shot was in May. She said yes & I agreed to do it since I had no previous issues. That was Tuesday Aug 10th, Thurs the 12th was 1st time being dizzy, I woke up fine but then I felt shift, like a jolt, right after I sat up & everything moved. It lasted about 10 minutes then I had a hot flash & then I was ok about 1/2 hr later. Then the next morning omg, it was horrible, everything was moving. I had a hard time keeping my balance, I was holding on to the walls to walk. I finally got it together enough to take my dog out & then I collapsed right in the driveway. I just dropped straight down. It took me a while but I mustered enough poise & strength to get myself up & back in the house & lay upwards on the couch. I’m somewhat better now with the help of alot of prayer, Pepto Bismo, and cold & flu medicine but can’t lay flat without getting dizzy. I’m still a little light headed & off balance when I move to fast. I also get hotness on the top of my head that causes it to get clammy but no fever.
    Dr says not sure this is caused by the injection but I know it was. I’m a healthy 65 yr old woman who knows her body & I never experienced anything like this before. I hate to say this but I’m glad to know others are too. I pray we all are healed & get back to ourselves soon.

    • Jen says:

      I find it deplorable that they gave you a third shot because of poor record keeping. This isn’t a stick of gum. Clearly, besides a host of other bad side effects, the inflammation that is causing is creating vestibular issues for people without even having previous vestibular issues.

    • Ira says:

      Hi Janet,
      how are you, my mom is having exact same symptoms like you, hope you are recovered now, what medication did you took, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. Can you please let me know what treatment is taking to feel better.

  15. Janet Cervantes says:

    I’m experiencing the same thing after the Covid shot. You could consider me naive but it happened after the 3rd injection. I received the 1st shot in March & experienced tiredness that evening. The 2nd on May 3rd, no big deal, my arm was just sore for a few days. Then I somehow lost my card. Figured I could print out injection info from my Kaiser records, only to find out they didn’t have my 2nd shot on record. Ended up having to go to the clinic to speak with a manager who told me they had me as a no show. And I would need to get another shot to get a card. I asked her if that was ok since my last one WAS in May & she said yes. So I decided to do it since I had no previous issues.
    That was Aug. 10th, on the morning of the 12th I woke up ok, sat up & felt this jolt then everything started moving this lasted for about 10 mins as I tried to stretch through it. Then I had a hot flash. Then I was ok about a half hr later. The next morning OMG, I woke up & everything was scrolling upwards. I had to hold on to furniture & walls to make it to the bathroom. Finally, I thought I was ok enough to take the dog out. As we were coming in I just collapsed in the driveway. I just dropped straight down. It took me a few mins to get my composure & strength to get up & in the house & on the couch laying in a upward position, I felt horrible all that day & couldn’t do anything. As of day I’m better, thanks to alot of Prayer, Pepto Bismo and Cold & Flu medicine but I can’t lay flat without getting dizzy. I’m still a little light headed & off balance, at times I get hotness on my head & it makes it clammy but I don’t have a fever. I’m just not right. Dr says can’t be sure it’s from the vaccine. I’m a healthy 65 yr old woman who now knows better. I know my body & I never experienced anything like this before! I hate to say this but I’m glad to know you are experiencing this also. I pray we are all healed & restored back to ourselves real soon! This stuff is no joke!

  16. Christine Beby says:

    I had my first shot of AstraZeneca July 8. Am now having horrible vertigo as well. I stumbled across this site searching for answers, seems as though I have found it. A friend at work has exactly the same thing as me as well. I also have heart problems so they thought the vertigo could’ve been related to that. After reading this site it’s now changed my way of thinking. And I’m in Australia, hoping my second dose goes better.

    • Physiofit says:

      Christine,
      Yes, make sure it isn’t cardiac related but there are great vestibular physios in Australia who could evaluate you!

  17. Jen says:

    What medication is he taking for the dizziness? Has he been advised to do exercises for the vertigo? How is he feeling now?

  18. Stacey says:

    Had jab 21st August the following day felt dizzy and room spinning vertigo and feel sick… Still like it 2 days on. ..my sister had jab in June and she’s still struggling with vertigo 2 months on 🙁

  19. Patrick says:

    So many people I know are getting vertigo from the jab. My office worker, neighbor and step mom. Didn’t really draw a connection at first until I noticed it was all new after the jab. Just did a search and this site came up, everywhere else says the vaccine only causes slight dizziness due to anxiety from taking it. Have any of you noticed how many people that are neighborhood walkers are now walking with sticks? Do your own survey and kindly ask these stick walkers why and when they started needing those and report back here the results.

    • James Hart says:

      Great to find this site.
      I had my first Astrazeneca jab on 11th May. A day later terrible vertigo and couldn’t get out of bed for 4 days.
      On 3rd August I had the booster and all was fine until 25 th then hit with this vertigo again.
      This is seriously debilitating. Maybe it’s not the vaccine; and there’s probably nothing that can be done if it is. But I think vertigo should be listed as a side effect if enough people report their symptoms and experiences.
      Vaccines aren’t perfect but we’d be in trouble without them. I just hope this side effect ??? goes away soon.
      I’m 71 and live in Australia.

  20. Angie P says:

    Thank you all. This has brought me some comfort. I am immunocompromised and had my 3rd dose of Pfizer yesterday. My 1st and 2nd shot I had no reaction at all. This one is definitely different. I expected the common stuff like headache, body aches, chills etc… but dizziness I was absolutely not prepared for. I woke up feeling great this morning, then gradually started not feeling well. Now I’m in bed dizzy like crazy and was afraid something had gone terribly wrong. I searched and even called Pfizer (their med I fo department is closed till monday) trying to get answers. So happy I found this… now I don’t think I’m dying. Although this dizzy rollercoaster can stop now. I seriously can move I just get more dizzy. I hope this passes soon.

  21. Thalia says:

    I have chronic dizziness and vertigo after getting the Moderna vaccine. It has continued after 6 months and seems like it might be permanent. I also have a feeling like my left ear is completely plugged. It began within hours of getting the vaccine and never went away. I have good days and bad days. I’ve been to an ENT, a vestibular therapist, had an MRI and CT Scan, and I’ve seen a neurologist. All have acknowledged that these problems were triggered by the vaccine, but they don’t know what to do. I was extremely healthy until I got the vaccine. I am now trying acupuncture and natural medicines, because Western medicine doesn’t know how to manage this. I lost one of my jobs because of dizziness. I have reported this to the CDC. I can tell you from my experience, nobody cares, and nobody wants to help you with medical bills or finances, or life management. We are not all in this together.

  22. Donna Quirey says:

    I developed vertigo a couple of weeks after my first vaccine and have now had it continuously for almost 2 months, some days it’s so bad that I am bed bound and can’t drive. I have tried the exercises that the doctor recommended but it does not make it any better.

  23. Gayle says:

    I had Pfizer 2nd shot May 13th and horrible vertigo when first lying down, in the morning when raising up, sometimes when rolling over in bed and if I tilt my head to left to do something like look under a table. Sometimes it happens when I tilt my head back and look up for a period of time. It has not been fun for sure. Is ENT or vestibular physio best route! I am in Nashville TN.
    So happy to have found this site!!!

  24. Marcela says:

    I had my first shot August 19th here in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro. I had episodes related to dizzness and larinthitis-related earache. I went to my otolaryngologist and she said my symptoms are related to pfizer vaccine. She prescribed a medicine to treat labyrinthitis for 10 days, and I hope I’ll get better after this.

  25. TazmaniaQ8 says:

    Like many of you, I have been suffering from vertigo and lightheadedness for over 3 months now. However, mine came after getting covid and the vaccine. I have consulted with umpteen doctors and they are clueless. I think it has to do with immune system and inflammation whether from vaccine or covid itself. My life has been unbearable especially that I have to drive everyday. I also can’t exercise. That said, it seems to be very, very slowly improving but it I suspect it will take a long time. I’m afraid to get the vaccine and possibly make it worse.

    • Physiofit says:

      Hi! We don’t have any data on actual BPPV following vaccine except for small amount of cases in our office, but here is a new scientific article on BPPV after actual COVID-19.
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8395413/

      It describes many of the mechanisms of pathophysiology. In short, if you do have signs and symptoms of BPPV, I would highly recommend getting examined by a vestibular physio / PT as treatments for this are very successful! It doesn’t matter if BPPV originated from COVID-19, a concussion or idiopathic (~35% of cases just arrive as we age), the pathology is the same and treatment can help!

      Feel free to contact us for guidance as well.

  26. Natalie says:

    I had my first Moderna Vaccine on July 23rd, 2021, and immediately experienced dizziness that has seemed to last off and on (sometimes to the point of mild disorientation, when it gets bad). When I first got the vaccine I had a muffled feeling with my hearing that lasted for around an hour after the shot, as if my blood pressure was a bit too high. Since then (it’s now Sept. 4th, 2021) I’m 38 years old and still experience dizziness off and on every day ( now it lasts for around an hour or two), I also get very warm like a fever here, and there. The past 2-3 days were so bad that I had to sleep through most of the dizziness, but at least now I seem to be improving. One thing I’ve found is to keep a close eye on your blood sugar! Mine has felt as if it’s constantly sliding off of a slow cliff towards fast occurring hypoglycemia, to the point of almost passing out. My blood sugar will register in the ’90s but feel like I’m going to pass out. After slowly eating more healthy carbs and more frequent meals (with both carbs and protein together in each meal) I’m beginning to feel a bit better. I was only lightly pre-diabetic before the shot, and never really had this problem before like I seem to now. I don’t know if it’s messing with our blood glucose in some way. But I figured if this helps some of you recover, then why not share it here. I really hope we all improve soon. 🙂

    • Audrey says:

      I wished I had found this forum after my second Astra Zeneca vaccine, which was 21st May. Minutes after getting jab I felt odd and spacey. I waited the 15 minutes and decided I was ok to drive. Oh my I really wasn’t. My brain couldn’t handle all the information/stimulus coming at me like busy intersection, traffic lights, walkers, , etc it was like my brain couldn’t process everything. How I made it home safely I’m not sure.
      But for six weeks after my symptoms were what I call ‘fish bowl head’, horrible dizziness, inability to walk more than 20 minutes without feeling I’d pass out, inability to focus and use executive functioning of my brain, snd sometimes chest pain, nausea and breathlessness. I had to give up work and driving for this time. Went to docs they took bloods and gave me ekg and all normal. But I was so far from normal.
      Also had to prop my head very high to sleep.
      As doctors were not able to do anything for me I went to a homeotoxicologist They use homeopathic remedies to clear toxins from body. Between that and trying Epley technique I finally got better.
      Like so many others are saying I am terrified to get booster.

  27. Laura says:

    I am in NO way an anti-VAXer. Full Stop. I could not get my vaccine quick enough. My second Pfizer shot was at the end of April. I had the usual symptoms, sore arm and felt like crap the next day but nothing remarkable. Life went on as usual until I had standard nasal surgery July 7, 2021 and my life has never been the same. Coming out of anesthesia was awful! It felt like I had the absolutely WORST hangover in my life. Serious brain fog, severe dizziness, nausea, vertigo & tinnitus….. 8 long weeks later, 12 medical professionals, 1 Primary Physician, 2 ENT nasal surgeons, 1 Ear ENT, 4 Neurologists, 1 Physicians Assistant, 1 Audiologist and 2 Physical Therapists, a trip to the ER, an EKG, MRI, Inner Ear MRI, CT Scan & CT Angiography and still no one has any idea why I have constant motion sickness, bilateral pressure in back of my head with what feels like pressure in my ears, headaches, brain fog and serious tinnitus. I have NEVER had any of these symptoms until my surgery. I started PT this week to try to mitigate the motion sickness and Meclizine has been a life line. What shocked me was a dear friend who had dental surgery 3 weeks ago is experiencing the same symptoms after her surgery. We were both fine until we had our surgeries and now, our lives have changed for the worse. Thank you to the person who posted the website to report adverse reactions! I am reporting mine, please do the same. The medical community can’t help us unless they know what to look for. We’re all in this together and the medical community is doing their best to figure this out. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System https://vaers.hhs.gov/index.html I truly hope all who are adversely effected a speedy recovery!

    • Bel says:

      Omg Laura. I hope you’re feeling better now. I’ve had dizziness or vertigo for over a month since about 20 mins after AstraZeneca shot. Also head pressure, fatigue, sore head, heat coming from head. It’s like living underwater or like a bad head-cold with the snot. I feel terrible.
      Going for mri tomorrow.
      Please tell me you’re better.

  28. Mitch says:

    I felt fine up until the early morning hours after my first shot. I awoke to the room spinning like never before. Even when I closed my eyes I felt my body spinning. I know this is related to the vaccine but nobody will say so. I had Covid 19 back in November and may of had some type of infection going thru my body when I got my shot. I feel like my immune system just freaked out with so much going on.Although weeks later the rooms have stopped spinning but I am still a bit off balance as if I just stepped off a cruise ship after a week….At least now I do not feel alone with this situation…..

    • Physiofit says:

      Hi Mitch,
      If you find that your symptoms increase with rolling over in bed and even initial lying in bed, or even turning your head in the bed; it would be worthy to find out if you have BPPV — which could have been a consequence (we do not know for sure) from the pathophysiology of the vaccine — and if so, it would be an easy assessment and treatment! Seek out a vestibular physical therapist near you.

  29. Vicki W. says:

    I had concerns about the vaccine exacerbating the more than usual vertigo I have had lately. I spoke with the pharmacist and he assured me that vertigo would not be a problem, so I got both shots. (I did not have any vertigo after either shot) I had put off being vaccinated for a very long time, not sure about side effects and IF I had read this before I actually did get the vaccine (Pfizer), I would not have. This would have made my concerns real! Vertigo is horrible. I was in my late 30s when I had the first “episode” and it wasn’t until almost 40 yrs later that I was “diagnosed” by an ENT that I indeed had BPPV. p.s. I just heard that woman I know has had bad vertigo ever since she was vaccinated.

  30. Dizzdout says:

    Wish you all well and perserverence.. I had my 2nd pfizer jab in the beginning of July, about weeks later during my vacation, from nowhere, my head started spinning, dizziness, hard to focus on objects when I move my eyes quickly, and brain fog.. Until this day, and I guess I am in for it for many more months. Have been reading about this for weeks now, because I cannot function properly or at least as I used to, tons of people reporting this after having their vaccine and as there is not official remedy to this, people try different things, from crazy diets (celery juice) to taking all possible vitamins. As far as I have understood, usually people heal but it really takes time, probably around 3 – 7 months.. So for me, it has been a month, will do my best, including VOR exercises but I dont think any of it helps much, our body just needs to process this crap now..

  31. Shannon says:

    Last shot June 3rd. 3 weeks to the day later had a three day event of severe motion sickness. Took Dramamine and it became tolerable. Have had BPPV almost 3 months now. NO other explanation other than the vaccine. Looking to see who else had similar responses and looks like I found what I was looking for.

  32. Paula says:

    Oh wow, glad I found this site.
    I had my 2nd Pfizer jab 3 weeks ago. I had the “normal” feeling unwell for a few days. Then I started getting a “duff duff” noise in one ear and feeling lightheaded when I moved my head, which got worse. I went to my doctor, who has put me on Antibiotics for a sinus/ear infection, but it’s not helping. Today I back tracked to when the symptoms started and it was from my second jab. I really hope this all goes away soon so I can get back to my life as it was.

  33. Marcela says:

    Hello, you guys, I have completely recovered my balance after 1 month of 1st shot. I did medicine to labyrinthitis. Now, I am relly concern about the second shot it will be soon on November.

    • Linda says:

      What was the medicine they gave you for labyrinth ? I would love to recover my balance of course. Any help you can give is appreciated by all of us.
      So glad to hear you have recovered your balance. Best of luck with 2nd jab.

  34. Tony says:

    I have been suffering from a COVID vaccine injury for 7 months. I have missed a significant amount of time from work and my quality of life is currently poor. I have been diagnosed with a Vestibular Migraine. The symptoms are 24/7 vertigo and daily headaches. The majority of the specialists I have seen believe the protein spike from the vaccine caused the inflamed nerve in my vestibular region. Some are not hopeful and feel the damage is permanent. No migraine nor nerve medication provides lasting relief. I recently started acupuncture as a last resort. The Acupuncturist feels he can relieve my headaches after 6 sessions and my vertigo after 12. I have completed 4 sessions thus far and have seen a small improvement so far. I will report back after the 12 sessions have been completed.

  35. MeLissa says:

    I was sad, but happy to find this site. September 2, 2021 my husband and I received our first Pfizer vaccine. That night I felt like a Mac truck had hit me and flu like symptoms. The next day, Friday, my husband and I both were sick all day. By Saturday we both were feeling better. Then Sunday the vertigo began, but very mild. It is now 18 days later and the vertigo is awful. I’m struggling to function and missing work. I DO NOT MISS WORK!!!!! Friday at work I felt like I was going to pass out. Thank goodness my husband and I work together. My head felt so strange. My blood pressure was 159/89 which is very high for me. Went to the Emergency Room. They ran every test you can imagine, but everything was fine except for the eye test. My eyes were jogging. Sent me home after 6 hours saying I had vertigo. I asked if it would be safe to get my second vaccine shot. The ER doctor said it out weighs any reaction you might think you’re having to the vaccine. Before the first shot I was a very active lady. Riding bikes, walking, yoga, work a physical job at a ship yard, and beyond happy with my life. Now I can hardly function, emotional, and frustrated. Saw my primary doctor today 9-20-21. He wants me to put off the second vaccine shot until week 5 or 6. I’m on Meclizine every 8 hours and migraine medicine as needed. I’m also scheduled to start Vestibular Therapy next week. I just wanted to share my journey after the first jab. I’m terrified of catching Covid and terrified of the second jab as well.

    • Physiofit says:

      Melissa,
      So sorry to hear your reaction. Please let us know how the vestibular therapy does for you as the eye test you mentioned in post could mean many things. It would be good for others to see if you did in fact obtain BPPV as a side effect.
      – Harrison

    • Tony says:

      Please consider going to an acupuncturist. I wasted 6 months with an ENT, Neurologist, Osteopath, and a PT with no lasting relief. I am finally getting results with acupuncture for my vestibular migraine caused by the vaccine

    • Alexa says:

      Try not to take the meclizine as this will delay your progress. According to my ent the brain needs to retrain and this will slow down the process

  36. Raine says:

    Hi I’m 37 and suffer with vertigo already,some days are horrible! I’m considering going for the vaccine , but so scared that my vertigo will get worse. What is the best solution.

  37. James says:

    Its been 3 months now after my first Pfizer jab. Two days after the jab, I started various symptoms like Vertigo, brain pressure, cluster headaches, stiff neck, fatigue and body weakness. I felt like I went into some kind of a shock that just would not settle down! The worst of all symptoms is Vertigo which stays 24/7 and this is the most debilitating! I feel the vaccine companies and the whole healthcare system have not been honest with the general public. I was a perfectly healthy normal 40 year old who had no underlying conditions before the jab and now my whole life has been turned upside down! I cannot do any physical activity or even a mentally concentration requiring tasks beyond a couple of hours. I also have fatigue and exercise intolerance and get tired after wakling for 15-20 minutes! I have been at ER, been hospitalized, had been at neurologists, ENT specialists, Eye specialist, Dermatologists and countless times to my GP. I have switched to low-histamine diet upon suspicion of Mass Cell Activation (no diagnosis) and taking lots of anti-inflammatory diet and herbs, which helped reduce some symptoms of inflammation caused by the Pfizer vaccine, but the Vertigo and occasional stiff neck with intermittent headaches do not seem to go away. I feel shattered and regret having taken this vaccine. I would never take the second dose or any other CV19 vaccine ever again come what may! I think its better to take supplements to strengthen immune system instead. Thanks to this forum, I have gotten an appointment with a physical therapist and will ask him to examine and offer me BPPV related exercises. I tried some at home but they increase the Vertigo initially and then it goes back to normal level, which gives an indication that I might have the BPPV triggered from the Pfizer vaccine. It is terrifying and must be specified on the list of expected side-effects with an additional note that this may taken infinitely long time period to go away if at all!

      • Brianna-Marie says:

        Tony, has the acupuncture also helped your dizziness, as well as the migraine? While I do have pressure aches in my head at times, I am mostly suffering from the nearly-constant feeling that I am going to have a dizzy spell (which is usually worse when I’m standing/moving around).

    • Alexa says:

      Thanks for your comments. I am in the same boat. 2 months now. I am a teacher and can’t quit my job otherwise I would because I can’t stand for long due to vertigo and tolerate noise. This last one makes me one to puke.I hope I get better because I can’t live like this much longer.

    • Agnes says:

      I am a 52yr old female living Hong Kong. I have been experiencing very similar symptoms started 3 days since my first Pfizer jab. Firstly headache and later dizziness, head pressure, feeling very tired almost passed out when shopping in a mall. When it lasted until 3rd wk, I went to see GP and thought could it be menopause symptoms but it feel very different though. My GP said it might be the side effect from vaccine and told me to bear it. When it comes to 5th wk when I was supposed to do the second jab, the symptoms still didn’t disappear so I went to see the second GP. Right away this GP said it’s the vaccine side effect and he had seen quite some cases and told me to go for the second jab. And I took the second jab. Now it’s been 3 months since the symptoms started by still there on and off but I almost have it every single day without seeing it’s getting better but also have other symptoms like fast heartbeat,etc.I went through various GP but doesn’t help and now I am going to seek neurologist’s help to further investigate. It’s different from any other symptoms I have ever experienced before. Hope you get well and if any treatment helps, please share. Thank you very much.

  38. Jon says:

    Not me, but my buddy has exterme vertigo 3 months after first shot. Young healthy guy. His doctor said he too is experiencing it and has had CT scans, hospitalization, etc. Worst of all, the doctor said he can not come foward with it to his peers for fear of reprisal or worse from hospital. Too much money to speak out against vaccine that is not only dangerous but appears to be pretty useless after a few months and worse yet is letting people with covid continue to spread it instead of staying home with symptoms, as well as allowing covid to survive in the body and mutant. Stop filling yourself with unknown poison and start treating covid with methods that not only make you better within 24-48 hours, it kills virus and you are no longer a host spreading it around.

    The problem is the treatments are virtually free and no one is making any money.

    If you also think the fda will come out and say the vaccine is essentially useless and is causing these issues yall experiencing, not going to happen.

    I have had an uncle have heart attack week after vaccine, a cousin massive stroke 4 house after vaccine (6 months later still can’t walk or talk), neighbor (er dr) paralysis half her face for week after vaccine, 40 year buddy extreme vertigo, his doctor same thing and on and on.

    My personal experience is I know many more people with much worse affects from vaccine than covid. At no point will they come out and say oops, sorry 60 percent of population, the billions we made off you turned out to not be the best option (treatment options)…..our bad.

    This vaccine was oversold as many fealt like do your part, stop the spread, when it is actually doing the opposite and allowing mutations and virus to survive in your body and spread more easily.

    Also, how many thought they were going to have to have one or two shots and that would be it for atleast many years? Say on December or January, would you be like hell yeah, I’ll take experimental not a vaccine, gene mutating mrna shot and yeah, give it me another one every 8 months for the rest of my life. Who cares, it’s “free”……big pharma is not making any money off this…..it’s not costing tax payers billions..

    Worst off, I fear what mrna will do years from now and know why they stopped developing decades ago after what happened to every single lab rat. Good news is, they definitely can’t catch civid anymore.

  39. Dinah Younger says:

    I did not want to get a COVID shot at all because I don’t trust big Pharma or government. But after mutation of the virus and people who did not have shots were dying and those who did get two shots were getting sick I reconsidered. Suddenly friends and family were saying get the shot or die! So I did. I have lots of allergies so the pharmacist made me sit for 30 minutes. I noticed my eyes hurt and the store lights bothered me. I also had some slight dizziness and chest discomfort but the pharmacist said it was from anxiety. I thought that was very possible as I’m a nervous Nellie type. Two hours later I had bad headache, stomachache and fatigue. Gone in a few days. Three weeks later I had my second shot and felt similar but not as bad and felt reasonably ok until bed time. Here I’m in bed the day after the second shot and I hurt all night so bad I could not sleep. The double the dose I usually take of Advil barely touched it. I finally got up at 7 am. Took my before breakfast pills and went to eat. I was so weak, painful and dizzy I had to move very carefully and slow. I’m determined to stick with my 14 daily pill regimen and eating schedule as I have diabetes and other health issues. I had heard of those who feel bad for a day or two so thought just hold on and it will go away. I could not find weakness, dizziness, eye burning in the list of side effects so wonder if I should be alarmed. It’s the weekend so I guess I keep keeping on as best I can. When I found this website and started reading I realized that sometimes you have to pick the best of two evils. To those who struggle with this I say don’t give up. To the one who commented not to lie and grow up? You don’t even count. It’s obvious you have no compassion, empathy. Do us a favor and at the least get off the site. Or do something constructive and do some research before voicing so negatively. So, how long should this go on before I get alarmed? I am remembering the comment my bloodwork dr said. He said well in about five years we will see if we glow in the dark or can have children. I thought he was teasing. Not so sure now. Note: I’ve had positional vertigo off and on for years. Believe me this is different. Hold on everyone I think it’s going to be a bumpy rest of our lives. Between the virus and shots that don’t work or cause many issues and the financial ruin. Sorry to be negative. Don’t be like that one without empathy. Everyone help and be there for everyone to the best of their ability.

      I have suffered constant vertigo for close to 2 months now. I had the Pfizer vaccine and noticed changes in my vision . I had double vision for a while and then suddenly on a Sunday woke up with extreme vertigo and ended up in the er. Now under the care of vestibular therapist and ent doctors. I am dizzy all the time. Thanks Pfizer

  40. Laura says:

    I had no side effects from the first Moderna vaccination. Twelve hours after having the second shot, I was totally nauseated, had a splitting headache, my throat was raw, and I hurt everywhere. These side effects lasted about 18 hours. Exactly one week later, I rolled over in bed in the middle of the night and felt like the room was spinning. This was mid-June and, three months later, I still experience it every day and night. I can’t roll over in bed, tip my head back in the shower to wash my hair, or bend down to look in a lower cupboard. I don’t have a history of vertigo; I have no doubt it was caused by the vaccine. I’m also having periodic double vision in my left eye. I hope these resolve eventually, but I’m not counting on it. Definitely no booster shot for me.

    • Moj says:

      Same here in Spain happened to me, It is 3 days of my second shot of moderna and the exact thing has happened to me. How are you feeling now?
      My children should take their second shot tomorrow and I don’t know really is it the best thing to do.

  41. Suzan says:

    1 week after my second COVID vaccination (Pfizer) I, too, started having dizziness,vertigo and the sense of fainting. Never have had an issue with this before. This lasted several weeks. Started to feel better in the morning but then it would return. Vestibular.org has an entire page devoted to these reports for those interested. It went away completely after three weeks. Just got my booster shot Friday and really hope this doesn’t come back. The encouraging piece here, for me, is that it does resolve on its own! I did take ibuprofen to help with what I supposed was swelling in the middle ear. Don’t get up too quickly.

  42. Caroline says:

    About 5 days after getting my second dose of Pfizer (Aug 12) I starter getting dizziness when changing positions from lying down to sitting up, or rolling over in bed. Also brain fog and mild headaches/lightheadedness. After 6 weeks of this I was able to see a physio who has specific training in vestibular techniques. She did the technique for BPPV and I felt almost complete resolution after this 30 min. treatment. That was one week ago. Overall I have felt much better since then, though I did have a half day of nausea/lightheartedness two day after the treatment for which I took some ginger gravol. Thankfully that stopped within a few hours. I do have a follow up treatment tomorrow. I am intrigued that at least 2 people on this post mention vertigo stating for them after having COVID, not just the vaccine. I encourage folks to find a physio/chiro or someone who has training to deal with vertigo – it has helped to much!

    • Physiofit says:

      Caroline,
      Thanks for sharing your story! Your description of symptoms with rolling in bed, lying down, etc is exactly what we want others on this site to notice. You had symptoms consistent with BPPV, which is very treatable by a physio, just like your results!

      Your half day of residual symptoms is completely normal, some have them and some do not.

      Thanks again for your story!

  43. Christina says:

    Hi All, I am in Australia and I am so glad I found this site! Exactly same symptoms after my 2nd Pfizer jab! First awful for few days then better as I expected and everyone else was feeling but bam next day I could hardly stand up. Had a week off work, osteopathic treatments, medication, MRI as I thought I was dying. Then I saw my dentist and he said definitely it was the jab, see your doctor which I thought she would laugh at me but she simply nodded and said yes, I agree with you!!! A lot of people are experiencing inner ear problems triggering vertigo but it will go away eventually but it is better than getting covid and sent me on my way. No one is willing to talk about it and you sound like a crack pot here in Australia if you speak out about it. I was fit and healthy 47 year woman and now I feel like crap every day, scared, confused, worried what else will happen to me and I was NEVER like this before. Never. I work in finance and can barely function there and then crawl home to bed ignoring my family as I am just exhausted. I will see an acupuncturist as suggested here. Vestibular specialists are really hard to get into here as there are very few of them and surprise, surprise they are really booked out and busy since vaccinations rolled out here in Oz. Thanks for listening

    • Chelle says:

      Hi Christina!! Im in Melbourne and had my 2nd jab on 21st Oct. I was okay for the day but then the following evening I had a sudden wave of dizziness, I thought it was the weed my partner had and i was feeling the effects of it. But no, if it was it wouldn’t have lasted this long. I’m speaking to my dr tomorrow, but wondering if I should just see a Physiotherapist anyway. I wonder how long this will last without treatment.

  44. Heather says:

    Hi Christina,
    You are not alone in Australia it’s just nobody’s talking about these awful side effects of Pfizer. I had my first jab on 1st September and I was effected very soon after I finished the 15 minute wait time. I felt very weird all over my face particularly my nose and top lip. I had massive headaches and I started to sway back and forth while making my next appointment at the desk and I thought it was just feeling giddy from the mask etc… but it continued the next day. I went to ER and they just said obbs are fine gave me Stemitol for nausea and packed me off. I left it and went to my chiro he said there was nothing wrong with my neck etc to cause any dizziness etc, but he had seen other cases of this after Covid-19 vaccination. I then went to Dr who gave me cortisteriods for dizziness made me worse. Now he thinks I have high blood pressure it’s a coincidence grrr. Which I probably do now have because my heart hasn’t stopped pounding and I’m having stuff like internal vibrations and slightly shaking since the day of vaccination.
    I was a healthy 49 year old the day before the vaccination and now like you I feel crap every day!
    They have made it mandatory to have 2 jabs to work in education so I guess I have to have my second jab next week.
    I am VERY scared what happens with next one.. as I am still swaying backwards and forwards when I stand still and haven’t got a lot of balance.
    Like you I am so glad I found this page and I am not alone.

    • Gillella says:

      Hello Heather,
      I am also from Australia and had similar symptoms after my first dose of Pfizer. My second dose is due next week. Did you get your second dose and how are you feeling. I am now scared to get my second dose.

      • Heather says:

        Hi Gillella,
        Got my second dose and again it effected me. My balance got worse again and I am still swaying and stumbling. Dr says it might be low blood pressure but I never felt like this before the shots. He sent me for CT as I saw him the day after the 2nd shot and my balance was really off. He had to stop me falling forwards and then backwards when he got me to close my eyes.
        During the CT scan I had my eyes closed I thought I could feel my eyes moving uncontrollably side to side! And when I slowly sat up and eventually stood up the nurse said “Oh my god your eyes are going crazy!” So I don’t know why that happened. I have an appointment with the Dr this week. So guess I’ll see what he says. I had no choice but to get the second jab or lose my job.

  45. Tarrah says:

    I started experiencing extreme vertigo that sent me to the ER. I started reading and thinking about everything, and realized my dizzy spells happened the same week I recieved the flu shot. A COVID-19 shot would probably kill me. The side effects are horrendous.

  46. Maree says:

    Hi Christina, I am here in Australia as well. I have been forced to have my first jab with the No jab No job policy. I just got it in before the deadline and was absolutely terrified to get the jab, I don’t like being a lab rat, well my husband and I got them on the Monday morning, slept the rest of the day away, had to be up early next morning to be out and about at about 10 am it started, feeling unwell, so had something to eat, felt a little better, got home and then the dizziness started with the nausea, this went on for 3 days then thankfully now is just a slight dizzy every now and again But yesterday my phone went off I got a message, I looked at my phone it was a bit blurry but the floor started coming up to me, so I closed my eyes, re-opened them only to experience the same thing, blurry phone and the floor coming towards me, it was like being in one of those 3D movies, freaked me out. I sat for a moment and it passed. I then ventured outside to look at my garage door which looked bent in the middle, I thought, this can’t be right and had to walk all the way up to it to check. I certainly hope this is not going to be an ongoing thing. I am terrified to get the 2nd jab but again No jab No job. If I didn’t have a mortgage, I would not get the 2nd jab. I was hoping to wait for the Vaccine which is suppose to be coming at Christmas which is made the good old fashioned way. But No jab No job.

  47. Edward says:

    I’m in Ireland, had the 1st shot in late July and the dizziness has never left. Not getting the 2nd shot. I’m strong, 40 year old, male and suddenly after that shot, when i’m standing still or sitting reading a book, out of nowhere i loose balance and almost fall over. Even lying down i get it. I’m very angry, i have things to do and these media/pharmaceutical/government are injecting people with experimental vaccines and not being transparent at all about the side effects. Try getting on the local radio to tell people about it ……………….. not a chance in hell, it’s all controlled. See the research paper “First Month of COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Monitoring — United States, December 14, 2020–January 13, 2021”. It said “13,794,904 vaccine doses were administered, and VAERS received and processed† 6,994 reports of adverse events after vaccination”, that is 0.05% adverse events (or 1 in 2,000). But i spoke to and heard of lots of people locally who had mild to serious adverse events, so it’s much more than 0.05%.

  48. Erik says:

    I took my 2nd Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine shot back in March…2 weeks to the day later I started feeling dizzy. Over the next week it progressively got so bad that I went to the urgent care. They could find no reason, but referred me to the ER because they wanted to get my heart checked out just in case. I went directly to the ER and they could find cause. They diagnosed me with vertigo and booked me with an appointment to see an ENT. By the time I saw the ENT a few weeks later, the vertigo had improved significantly. Only minor spinning at times and sensitivity to noise. The ENT did a hearing test at the ENT and said that I had vestibular vertigo as well. Now….there is the booster and I’m scared to get it. it took a few months to completely recover from the vertigo after the second shot. I don’t know what to do.

  49. Karen says:

    Immediately after getting the first shot, I started having stabbing pains on the left side of my brain and slight lightheadedness. Then a few weeks later I had what felt like a heart attack and was hypertensive at my doctors office. They sent me to the hospital because my chest pains were getting bad and my bp continued to rise, after some time and some nitrogen, aspirin and an IV it went away and I went home. Had lots of tests run but nothing was found. During this entire time I kept feeling like I was on the verge of having a dizzy spell but luckily it never went full blown dizzy spell so I didn’t think much of it. A few weeks later the almost dizzy spell turned into a severe dizzy spell, nausea, vomiting and the stabbing headache on the left side of my skull. I ended up in ER had ct scans and they can find nothing. I just finished a course of methylprednisone which helped with the double vision but nothing else. I can barely walk and am too afraid to drive anywhere. Have scheduled a visit with ENT but am not hopeful they will be able to help me. Praying they can but I think I need a neurologist. It’s been 2 weeks now of this horrendous dizziness and pain on left side of head. I wish I had never gotten the second vaccine shot. I waited almost 3 months to get the second shot and only got it because of Delta. I am on disability since the heart episode in August. I am 63 and have never had anything like this happen, I have RA but never was housebound and unable to take care of myself until this vaccine. I cant even get outdoors into my yard to walk around as I feel even more unsteady outside without anything to hold onto except my cane. This is hell…I am pretty sure this is a result of inflammation caused by the vaccine.

  50. Linda says:

    I got the moderna vaccine and have been having issues since getting the booster in early September, My nose bleeds everyday some days 2 or 3 times a day and I am so off balance….I stagger around like a drunk and today I fell. I am really scared about all of this….I have a huge lump on my thigh and I already had back problems and now my back is all skinned up. Can someone please tell me how long these symptoms will last.

  51. Greg (56 ) says:

    Wow! Came across this site after hours of research. I had no idea so many people were having these symptoms. I too have been suffering with dizziness and headaches for six months. First shot was Jan. 21, second Feb. 21 .I took the Moderna poison. My symptoms started in April with dizziness and a pulsating feeling in my upper body and head that I never had before that forced me to have to lay down. I thought it was high blood pressure, which i never had previously. I have gone through just about everything mentioned here as far as symptoms and medical treatment. My next step will be to try accupuncture and a vestibular therapist. I am desperate for relief!
    As i am not one to participate in blogs or social media, I felt truly compelled to respond here. This ongoing experience has truly been horrible. And i wish all of you a complete and successful recovery.
    I learned much in the past few hours and am totally convinced the vaccine is the cause of my misery. I have no doubts that the virus was released intentionally and hope those responsible for it’s release rot in hell!
    It’s a strange relief that I now know what I am actually dealing with ( although i did suspect it).
    My main objective now, aside from coping with this inflicted disease, will be to spread the awareness of it.
    Please post your progress and bless you all!

    • Clair Rose says:

      I am exactly the same as you Greg. I had 1st dose in Feb 21. A few weeks later I began to experience daily vertigo, feel like I’m rocking/swaying whilst sitting, or like I’m walking on a canoe on water or on a mattress. Woozy head and off balance. In May I was diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder called Antiphospholipid Syndrome (everyone suffering vertigo and headaches/ead pressure get tested!) I had no symptoms previous to the vaccine and since having it I have suffered every single day. It’s been 9 months now and still no improvement. I was started on daily Asprin to thin my blood but still off balance every day. I am sure I did not have this blood clotting disorder before the AstraZeneca jab. Really regret having it, 35 years old and my life feels ruined by this. Praying things improve. Anyone else had the vertigo as long as me?

  52. Kathleen says:

    I was fine after my two Pfizer jabs ,it was only when I got my booster that I had vertigo.
    I’ve suffered with it before,so I’ve been doing the excercices lying on the bed on my left side them my right.
    Heart racing,it’s good to know it’s not just yourself that’s got it,not to wish it on someone,but to know that what’s caused it.
    Hope everyone gets well.x

  53. Kristie says:

    I have had Mal du de’barquement since February 26, 2021. It was triggered the day that I received my second dose of the covid vac. It is 24/7. I have tried everything to counteract the symptoms. Nothing seems to work. Question! Has anyone gotten the booster since they have this ailment? If so, were the symptoms exacerbated?

    I am 38 yr old female, very healthy, fit. Just recieved my first ( and last) dose of Pfizer vaccine. I am pretty dizzy, its been a few days. Like when I stand up or if I walk down stairs. Felt like how I used to get
    when I was younger, and had very low blood pressure.
    Thank you all for your comments, I am so glad I found this forum, these are the side effects the government or pharma dont want us to know about. I am so sorry to hear that for some this continues for months, I hope it gets better.
    I hope this does not last long. I am so pissed off at these liars in govt who have no science to base this on. (Coming from a pharmaceutical scientist myself.) Everything is just so wrong with the Left. The have f****ed up the whole world now.

    Has anyone had long lasting vertigo after Az vaccine. I had 1st dose in Feb 21.

      Yes! I am 7 mo post Pfizer! I’ve been dizzy 24/7, head pressure, feeling woozy.. spent so much money on healthcare but no care! I want my life back, Pfizer thanks for poisoning me’ I’d be better off just having Covid!

  57. Linda says:

    So I am so glad I found your site everywhere else has told me nothing. I had the PFizer vaccine at the beginning of October and I will say about a week in I started getting this dizziness now at first I was thinking ok weather changing maybe an inner ear infection but no it’s definitely not that. At first it was happening only when I went to lay in bed and get up but would only last a few seconds then go away to now I’m getting it when I’m in the shower when I’m driving I’ll start to feel it come on. It’s been hell and I wish it would just go away. I thought I was losing my mind thinking it wasn’t this vaccine but I am seeing now I’m not alone. I have asked others and they are like I don’t think the vaccine can cause these issues well I bed to differ. It can do a lot more then we think. Neurological symptoms can occur as well have a friend in a wheelchair because of it. I am refusing to get the second dose for I don’t need this to get any worse then it already is. Super sad about this whole virus let alone the fears of this stupid vaccine. God speed take care everyone.

  58. Matt says:

    I have the exact same thing. Vertigo, severe eye strain, tired all the time, inability to think, shallow heavy breathing, and severe sharp piercing headaches. I had covid December 2020 and was tested for antibodies 10 months after and was packed full. I am being mandated to take the vax by my job because of the current administration and they said natural immunity doesn’t count even that I have high antibody count. So I ended up getting the Pfizer first shot. 3 days later all of a sudden I’m unable to read sentences and the worst pain in my head ever. I was shaking and throwing up. Ended up in the hospital diagnosis “headache”. I barely have been able to work the past two weeks for my inability to perform my desk job. I can no longer cognitively do my design work. The pain was so bad I would rather not live that go through that again. I’m so scared that what’s going on will be permanent. Please somebody help I’m begging you!

  59. Wendy says:

    I struggled for a long time with my decision to get the vaccine and did not feel good about it. I finally caved and got both my phizer vaccines, 2nd one September 10th. On October 20th I went to the er with extreme vertigo, vomiting etc. I am 66, have never had vertigo in my life. I hike high altitudes, snorkel, boat, bike ride etc. I spent the night in the hospital then was sent home with exercises for BPPV, which I do faithfully. Although it is better, the last couple of days I am noticing many times when I stand up or turn my head etc I get extremely dizzy. Working out at the gym I am careful when I get up and hang on to things to catch my balance. I am only saying this because I am very active and have NEVER had anything like this. I see many of you are much worse then I am and I am so very sorry for those that are. I am very angry at myself for caving and getting this vaccine.

  61. Donna Mitt says:

    I got my Pfizer booster 3 weeks ago and I’m still dealing with extreme dizziness. But it’s really strange ..my symptoms are worse in the morning and afternoon by night time I feel a lot better and I feel my best right before I go to bed. Then the whole cycle starts all over again when I wake up the next morning

    • Amanda says:

      I had a severe allergic reaction to the Moderna vaccine back in March. I was treated with prednisone and allergy medicine. After that I had vertigo for about a month. My primary had me take citrizine twice daily with benedryl. I have MS, am on immunosuppressive medication, and live in NY, so my doctor and family were really concerned about me getting the virus. I recently found an allergist that does microdosing of the vaccine for people that had a severe reaction. They are only offering Pfizer at this time so she gave me the first dose of Pfizer. I received 4 injections on 10/27 in micro doses into the same arm. All with 15 minutes in between each other. It went fairly smoothly, until that night. I woke in the middle of the night with the vertigo back again. I have been on and off dizzy. It’ll be 3 weeks on Wednesday. So now I’m afraid to get the second dose of the Pfizer. I’m not technically fully vaccinated because I have had one dose of Pfizer and one of Moderna…but if just one dose is doing this, is the second dose just going to make matters worse? I just wish the CDC would let you mix and match vaccines because now I have been vaccinated twice but still can’t go anywhere that requires a vaccine card.

  62. Ginny says:

    I had my Pfizer booster on October 13th. I was down for 2 days with headache and body aches. Also, the day after the vaccine, I was so dizzy I thought I was going to pass out. Now, I’m having this dizziness daily, even while sitting down. Had I known about this, I wouldn’t have taken the booster.

  63. Carolyn duncan says:

    I I had the Moderna shots in April and may. I was so deathly I’ll my husband thought I was going to die. Went to e.r and they told me I had a virus and they could do nothing for me because I did not have a fever so I went home and was bed ridden and throwing up and ended up so weak I could not walk so my husband called an ambulance. They did not do one thing for me came home sicker than ever ending up in an ambulance again! Still sick with vertigo and feel like I will never be normal again. I was very healthy before this shot! Sorry I ever took them big mistake! I need help!

    • Marsha says:

      I got dizziness after my second pfizer shot and it would not go away. After researching this it looked like vertigo. I did the home remedy for vertigo and after 1 day it was gone. Same happened after booster so i did it again and it went away. So if your feeling like the room spins when you turn your head or something like that try doing the home remedy procedures for vertigo. They are just simple movements and will make you feel so much better.

  64. Kev says:

    Hi. I suffered a massive jump in my tinnitus about 2 weeks after. From conversations it’s quite common and related to the abundance of ace 2 receptors within various parts of the ear dealing with hearing and balance.that the spike protein attaches to and then targeted by the immune system. I believed they called it an off target immune responce.

  65. amanda says:

    I had my first vaccine in January 2021 and second in March 2021. In June 2021 I had vertigo and then Nystamus at work, after I violently vomited .This continued for a week, during this week I was taken to Hospital by Ambulance. Now more than 5 months later I am still suffering Balance issues. I have seen an ENT Consultant who says my ears are fine and I am a mystery. This has wrecked my life I cant drive to work or any where else. I am a prisoner in my own home. It has made me very depressed. I wonder if when the vaccine is gone from me will I return to normal? Does anyone know how long the Vaccine takes to leave the body? I am having to sell my house and move nearer shops and transport as I cannot drive and I live in a remote village. I will not be having the booster. Thank you everyone for all your experiences shared on here.

  66. Corné says:

    Mine started three weeks after the AZ vaccine. Initially felt like I had a lead ball in the middle of my brain. That lasted for 2 days and then faded, but 2 days later it was back. Any sudden movements makes my head very dizzy and causes nausea like motion sickness. Then it disappears for a day, just to come back again. When I bend over forward it seems to kick off as well.
    I am so relieved to read that others are also experiencing this as I initially thought I had a brain tumor. It’s awful. I eagerly await to hear more solutions? I am in week 2 and don’t like the prospect of months more feeling like this.

  67. Drew says:

    Hi from Australia!

    I am a 35yo Male with no history of any medical issues, no past head traumas and no family history of any of the below symptoms. I am a Dad and have a Dad body – I am not fit, but certainly not unfit and usually have a fair amount of energy.

    Last Thursday (5 Days ago) I got my first Pfizer jab. Felt fine afterwards for the first few hours, then I got the chills followed by a crazy fever. I slept terribly that night due to the barrage of fever then chills and woke up drenched in sweat and feeling insanely tired, like I could sleep for a month straight kind of tired. After showering and sitting down I noticed how dizzy I was, the tiredness and dizziness have not gone away since, every morning I wake up tired, whether I have 14 hours sleep or 8 hours sleep, and the dizziness is absolutely unbearable. I have never suffered from any adverse health conditions in my life, my family does not have any history of anything like this, thankfully healthcare is free here so I can just keep going to the DR to get this sorted out.

    To sum up my symptoms for the last 5 days:
    Chills
    Fever
    Extreme tiredness
    Constant dizziness
    Exhaustion from any physical activity (even walking up the stairs stops me to take a breather now…) – This has come in the last couple of days
    Extreme Irritability
    Back and whole body aches (Similar to the ones you get when you get the flu, except they are worse)

    Cheers for the read,
    Drew

  68. Susan Clarke says:

    I’ve had my Pfizer vaccine in April 2021 but lately ive been having these bad dizzy spells. I had my thyroid removed in June and honestly thought it was from it but now reading all this I can see where it derives from. I hope it eventually goes away because it’s like I don’t feel normal.

    • Marline says:

      After my second Pfizer vaccine, the dizzy spell was very bad. I spent two days in the hospital because doctors wanted to make sure that I wasn’t having a stroke.

    • Laura says:

      I got vaccinated in July and have felt like I am on a boat in the middle of a storm since. I am 33, extremely active athlete, great diet and sleep.

    Hi there,

    I have had this same symptom since June after I had my second shot, I have no health issues, I have had CT, MRI, blood work, I have been to chiropractor, physio, acupuncture. I have tired serc and no relief. It has been months of me constantly dizzy all day long just some days worse and some days not. Is there anything that anyone has found to stop this? I am really having a hard time with no relief.

  70. Geri says:

    I am in Canada and am 66. I had the two Pfizer shots, the last one first week of November. Now I have experiencing vertigo, described exactly like others (worse when turning over in bed). It is a little shocking to see how many people are experiencing these symptoms. I will look up a BPPV physiotherapist and see if that helps. I’m not reading about anything else that has helped. Did I miss something?

  71. Lanae Gillette says:

    My Boyfriend has the same recurring issue and its concerning us both, affecting his day to day and frankly I can’t believe this is happening. We are both fully vaccinated (Pfizer) I’ve only had blackout experience but other factors like not eating that day played a part. What is he suppose to do?

  72. James says:

    Having the same symptoms,
    Had my 2nd dose of AZ on 23rd August and the constant dizziness happens after a month. Been two months and still no improvement.
    Wonder anyone recovered? Or it will last forever 😐

  73. Kurt says:

    I’m doing this since the Johnson Johnson. I did some research and feel like some nerve damage happened when my immune system responded to the spike protein in the vaccine.

  74. Kinthia says:

    It’s already 6 months i got pfizer vaccine and i still feel dizzy at times. Neurologist has not detected anything. I also feel stiff joints on hands and feet and they are swelling in the morning. And until now i feel tired. Long way to take back our lives .

  75. Melissa says:

    I got my first vaccin of Moderna back in June and about a week after started to feel very dizzy and my ear was hurting. I was working from home and wasn’t able to concentrate anymore for more than 10 minutes. Than I started to feel very anxious and my hands were shacking every morning for more than a month, after that it felt like it went in my legs and I wasn’t able to walk or stand up for more than 10 minutes. I didn’t know all of that was happening because of the vaccin so I did the biggest mistake to take my second shot in august and everything just got worse, I was sleeping all day until novembre, my heart was beating so fast for no reason, I had a hard time breathing, my neck and my face were really hurting and I got some major headaches that scared the hell out of me. I never had any health issue before that and I didn’t know what was happening to me so I went to see so many doctors thinking the good doctor would find out what was wrong with me. After many different blood test, mri and scan of my head, ORL consultation and auditive test they all said I was healthy and nothing was wrong with me…when I never felt so bad in my life, so tired, so anxious and definitely not normal! So I decided to try finding some tricks that could help me feel better since nobody seems to understand what I was talking about, I would like to share it with you guys and hopefully it will make you feel a little bit better, I still feel a bit the headaches everyday but nothing like before, I don’t feel dizzy anymore and I got a lot less anxious. To get there I decided to changed my diet, I completely stopped eating sugar and salt, prepared meal, fast food anything that can trigger headaches and I know I’m still not back to my normal life but it makes me feel so much better. What works for me is to eat a peanut butter toast in the morning with some blueberries on the side and drink a big glass of water. Than 2 hours after have a snack, like an yellow apple and a piece a bread, than for lunch I would have some chicken or shrimps and aspergus or brocoli and make sure there’s no salt and no sauce, 2 hours later another snack like a baked potatoe and for supper a steak and a salad with no salt again and I would eat a sesame bagel at night. I’m almost eating the same thing everyday since a few weeks, usually I would get sick of it but it made me feel so much better and it’s really helping me going through that hell. And I soon as I start feeling the headache coming back I drink a big glass of water. It took me many weeks to find what to eat and what not to eat and when I would eat something bad it would make me go bad to the depressive headache so that’s why I’m sharing my menu with you guys. When I’m not sure if I should eat something or not before having it I go on google to check if that kind of food trigger headaches. I really hope you guys will feel better. I feel so bad knowing so many people are going through the same thing than me!

  76. Msorrell says:

    I’m so glad I’m not in this alone. I’ve been up since 3am unable to sleep. I got my second jab of maderna 8 days ago. The following night I woke up to use the bathroom and the room was spinning and my heart was racing. Scared the crap out of me. I wake back up a few hours later and roll over and felt like I was on a boat, more spinning. I stood up and felt off balance. Then I noticed my ear was ringing, bad headache, fatigue, short of breath, and nauseated. While the spinning episodes are shorter they have not stopped. Just 10 days ago I was at universal studios having a blast with my teens and working out 5 days a week. Now I’m fighting with vertigo and just want things back to normal

  77. David says:

    I have recovered from this. I had my vaccine at the end of July followed by intense vertigo followed by 18 weeks of dizziness and extreme fatigue that went from perminant and high intensity to patchy in mid october and I’m now over two weeks clear as of the second week in december. I still get chronic fatigue after cardio excercise if I don’t push too hard. I don’t know what to do about the booster and my GP like countless others just hasn’t taken it seriously.

    Here is a group that I found back in July – many people on there have recovered within the time frame of a few weeks to months.

    It’s very frightening I know. My advice is stick a chart on your wall Am Afternoon and Evening and just note your dizziness from 1 – 5. It’s the only way I was able to see that I was getting better. It can also be data to pass on your doctor.

    Here is the reddit group:

  78. Daeris says:

    I was Pfizer for my first two doses, and then just a week ago I had a Moderna booster. I felt crummy for a few days, then started feeling like I was getting better. But then, suddenly I was hit with dizziness that doesn’t seem to want to go away. I went in and was told it seems like vertigo, and was given a Meclizine prescription. The Meclizine doesn’t seem to help, and only seems to make the dizziness worse in fact. I am still a strong advocate for the vaccine, but I can’t seem to attribute this sudden onset of dizziness to anything else. I truly think it has come from the booster shot. Especially after all these comments. Has anything helped anyone?

    • Joni Walker says:

      My Moderna booster was on 12/3, I had extreme dizziness, spinning walls, chills and sweating by 2 am on 12/5 ~ I couldn’t even stand up.The dizziness has lessened but is still there ~ have an appt with the ENT on 1/3/22. I know it was from the booster ~ I’m confident. Now my systems are more closely matched to BPPV. I’m glad I’m not the only one!

    I got the vaccine on August 18 and after 5 days I had a horrible vertigo picture, I couldn’t get up. They took me to the emergency room and there they told me that I was fine and that’s where my struggle began, I’ve been like this for almost 4 months, I don’t know what to do, the tests they do all go well and I received my second dose on November 18, this made it worse, Wednesday I had a crisis and this week has been hell, I’m desperate I don’t know what else to do, apparently there is no cure for this, only time

    when i rolled over in bed i said to myself that was weird went back to sleep when
    i got up to walk i was out of balance lasted a couple of day but still had fatigue for weeks , then i noticed it was after i ate grapes in the morning , i stop all fruit and doing way better. this was about 3 weeks after 2nd shot of Moderna

  82. Fiona Roberts says:

    I have not been well since the Pfizer booster I had the usual dead sore arm to begin with but on day six started with the headache I had really bad pain and neck stiffness for two weeks then two weeks after getting booster got a horrific migraine with pain in right eye next day I couldn’t eat day after that I got the blurred vision and since then I feel sick and dizzy cant walk fast really off balance sure this is the booster

  83. Robert says:

    I am dizzy can’t stand in the shower rincing.
    my hair after pyse.r .booster or I will fall. No balance
    Thanks, falling in the shower feels great. Now I been handles and rzils, who pays for that

  84. Naiden says:

    I had moderna vaccine, few days after the 2nd shot I got dizzines, bad one, thought will fade out on the street….went back home, after 2 days it went away. But when I am ouside walking on the street still feel dizinnes for a couple of minutes, not so strong as in the begining, but still have it 6 months after the last vaccince. Now wondering how can I evade booster, as my work is connected with travels, and in EU they are voting for manadory vaccine every 9 months now. By the way, before the vaccine, my wife got infected, we live together, I didn’t get the virus, we went for antibodies test 2 months after that – I didn’t have any. So not so infected as they clame on the tv.

  86. Olivia says:

    First shot was J&J. Tired and achy for three weeks. Whatever. Booster was Moderna. Soul crushing dizziness and nausea starting two days later. I have a history of vestibular migraines. Thought it was that until more scary Neuro symptoms started. Numbness and tingling in my arms, face, and throat. Shaking and clumsiness. And I started slurring words, stuttering, and forgetting words. MRI found nothing. ENT found nothing. Assumption is it is just my vestibular migraines. My personal theory is that the inflammation/immune response set off my existing condition. 8 weeks later I have missed almost the whole time from work and am only starting to feel better (not good. Not normal. Better). Mine was not BPPV. I honestly do not understand how the mechanism of an immune response would displace something I. Your ear to cause BPPV. But what do I know. If you have not found answers, ask about vestibular migraines.

    • Physiofit says:

      Thanks for sharing your story Olivia. Yes, these cases aren’t always BPPV (a more easier solution!). I think the pathophysiology behind BPPV (if the immune response initiates it) shows that it is more than just a mechanical (i.e. crystal) issue, but possibly other underlying mechanisms.
      Either way, glad you’re better. Stay positive 🙂

  87. Leonard Lee says:

    I got the pfizer booster Tuesday at 3 and at 12 a.m. I got up to use the bathroom and had vertigo.
    Its now 7 days. I can’t move my head up or down. Make sudden movements. Have Headaches. I am healthy, use no meds and run 5 mi a day. This is a nightmare. Seeing the doctor today.
    As for people who say “Get Boosted its safe and effective” Obviously that is not true for some of us. Something is going on with these shots if all of us are complaining of the same side effects.

  88. Pamela says:

    After the 1st and 2 Phaser vaccines I had no reactions whatsoever. Yesterday I went ahead and got the booster, I have CKD Yesterday I felt nauseous on and off all day, Today my equilibrium is completely off. Can anyone tell me how long this last!

  89. Claud says:

    I had my first Pfizer shot in early december. No symptoms at all. Then just after Xmas when i was scheduled to get the 2nd shot I felt vertigo when laying in bed, eyes closed. It was scarry. I checked blood pressure. It was normal. Then it went away. I got the 2nd shot last week and just after the following day i felt this really weird dizzines, not classic type when the world is spinning around you, only the feeling of you are about to loose your balance and your mind is not clear, bit foggy. I am unable to concentrate also bit stressed. It has been for a week and I still have this weird dizziness which i was not able describe even to the doctor because i had never felt something like that, sometimes I feel my head pulsing, not headache only some kind of pulsation. Really scarry and unpleasant side effect. Someone wrote earlier dizziness gets better when you are moving, this is true. It gets worse when sitting or lying. I never had dizziness in my life before that. For those who think we are hillarious and liars i just want to say you are very lucky not having these side effects.

    • William says:

      I have been also having very strong pulsating, stabbing headaches since about 4-5 days since the Covid booster vaccine (Moderna). I had Pfizer for shots 1 & 2. It has been over 40 days since the headaches started.
      Ever since the booster, I have been suffering from daily stabbing headaches that feel like electrical pulses.
      I’ve been to ER, seen 3 General Practitioners (Doctors), 1 Specialist (Neurologist), lots of blood tests (including coagulation profile) and even attended a Research Center for Eye Health for all sorts of scans. All tests came back normal, and all doctors said there is nothing wrong. However I have never experienced this type of pain before in my life, not even with migraines. I also tried recently 5 sessions of hyperbaric oxygen treatment, but I don’t believe it helped. I also have a very healthy diet, and I am fairly active (play tennis, run, long walks). I’m 37, male. Nothing has helped. Although recently the headaches appear to be losing intensity and frequency, I have a constant sensation of heaviness on my head as if something is not fully settled.
      The specialist said to him it is idiopathic stabbing headaches, and that I can either monitor it or trial different medicine options. So far, I opted for monitoring without taking medicines so that I can feel when/if they stopped naturally. I’m still waiting for the headaches to stop.

    Dear friends,

    I’m from Maharashtra India.After taking second jab of Covishield I’m experiencing hell of dizziness and also experienced 4-5 times heavy Vertigo spinning issues which has last till 2-10 minutes as well.. I’m fully fed-up with this and just wanted to check with others what were the symptoms after taking both the vaccinations ..In my case, it was sweating & sort of bearable pain at the area of vaccination… nothing else.My second jab of Covishield vaccination was done on 04.09.2021.

  94. Mona says:

    Hi, I had Covid 19 around 18 months ago and it started just by BPPV symptoms and something like a stroke. I still have the BPPV maybe 25 days on month and I used betahistine and cinnarizine and none helped me but in the last one make it worse! I used Epley maneuver it helped but I am not cured completely and 3 days after having the third shot of my vaccine I had a bad attack. I am going crazy. blurred eyes! a very odd menstruation and can not focus. is there other way than these for me?

    • Physiofit says:

      Mona,
      I would recommend seeking out a physician and/or vestibular therapist as even though Epley manuever is most common treatment (~80% of time), you may not extend your head enough to make adequate changes and/or there are other canals involved.

    • Ira says:

      Hi Mona, how are you now, my mom is 68 in Jan 2022 she got the AZ booster and after 3 weeks she started having dizziness none of the medicines seems to be working. Its been almost 4 months she is still suffering from severe dizziness. Can you please let me know what treatment you are taking

    • Ira says:

      Hi Mona, my mom is also taking the same medicine and she also said it made it worse, did you changed your medicines, please share, my mom is very sick at the moment, any info will be helpful, Thanks

  95. Dtor84 says:

    Same here..after my first dose with in 5 min I felt dizzy ,my ears started ringing blurry vision then I started sweating profusely then I threw up right there on the Walgreens floor..the second dose wasn’t as bad, all the same symptoms except I didn’t puke..

  96. Lizzie says:

    I had an immediate severe reaction to the 1st Pfizer dose. Yup, one of those 1 in 5 million! Along with severe heart arrhythmias, dangerously low blood pressure, and a host of other anaphylactic symptoms, like many others here the dizziness started within 15 minutes of receiving the vaccine. The tinnitus started about 4 hours after. 1 week later I started to get these pulsing sensations in my ear and the other ear felt full. 2 weeks after the vaccine I ended up in the ER again after getting up in the middle of the night. I couldn’t stop falling around the room and vomiting. The doctors thought I had a stroke. After intense tests, CT, MRI, neurological etc., I was diagnosed with BPPV. That was March 2021. I was treated twice by an ENT specialist with the Epley Manoeuvre. The first try didn’t work. The second time improved my symptoms enough to be able to walk. The ENT told me it could of been caused by earlier probable Covid late Jan 2020/early Feb 2020 or was induced by a hyper-immune response to the vaccine, especially since he believes I had Covid prior. Anyway, due to my immediate severe reaction, I can’t have another vaccine dose. A year later I still have balance issues, tinnitus, dizziness, and nausea, especially when looking up or down. I can’t drive a car, or deal with too much noise, visual or spatial challenges. I wish I had never gotten the vaccine. My life has never been the same and it is horribly disabling.

  97. John2022 says:

    I had 1st and 2nd doses of Astrazeneca in 2021, and no problems. Got Moderna as my third in January 2022 and 4 days later severe vertigo and vomiting. Tried Epley etc no success just got worse and required trip to ED and 4 days in hospital before I could walk again.

    Neurologist though it was Vestibular neuritis. Most likely cause is a viral infection of the inner ear, swelling around the vestibulocochlear nerve (caused by a virus), or a viral infection that has occurred somewhere else in the body. Some examples of viral infections in other areas of the body include herpes virus (causes cold sores, shingles, chickenpox), measles, flu, mumps, hepatitis and polio.

    So, very possibly caused by vaccine reaction, as it cannot be excluded as a cause. See https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmed.2021.790931/full

    After 6 weeks of being housebound, gaze stabilization exercises have helped retrain brain to adapt to damage nerve, but still not 100% .At least I can drive car and get out and about now.

  98. Charles says:

    So my wife has been having an on and off feeling for 2 months. Mainly attributed to what seems like dizzy/vertigo spells. Fatigue is also part of her feeling around this time. Never had these types of issues before. Oddly, it will come and go with her monthly cycle but even days afterwards, she feels off. She’s done blood work. Vitamin D is low but otherwise, nothing else to be found. Still having these issues and her doctor is thinking that fluid is moving around in her ears causing an imbalance. Again, never had these issues until now. Her and I both got out Pfizer shots last Spring. I feel fine but have encountered at least 2 older men who now have pacemakers shortly after their boosters were given. Coincidence perhaps but still disturbing that so many comments and feedback I’ve heard about side effects that is more than likely linked to a vaccine. Possibly.

  99. Anna says:

    I have been experiencing vertigo and tinnitus since my second vaccine. The vertigo feels like I’m constantly on a boat. It has been 4 months since the vaccine and the symptoms haven’t improved at all

      No treatment or medicine will work for her …bcsz this is all bcsz of spike proteins which cause neurological problem…she needs to detox her spike protein which are present in the body now. In my words vaccine= toxin

    I am not vaccinated, however was suddenly struck down with extreme vertigo last May, so I have been constantly dizzy for a whole year, feeling like I am on a boat on a stormy sea. Decided to go on a clean diet about 5 weeks ago i.e. no processed foods and lots of fruit and veg, I discovered that gluten is the trigger for my extreme dizziness, since I have avoided gluten dizziness has reduced from 100% to about 5%, I still feel slightly dizzy after eating, don’t know why, maybe gluten still is inside the body. I will have food allergy tests done next week, maybe will find out more. Hope this info is helpful.
