What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

I was a normal, slim, healthy and active 50 year old with no medical problems and on no medications.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Shortly after my second Pfizer vaccination I experienced headache, blocked ears and discomfort in my ears and throat. Within a week I developed tinnitus in both ears although it is worse in the left ear, that was the most blocked. I had no previous hearing problems.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I have not found one.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I sought medical attention but was turned away.

What would you like others to know?

I was vaccinated in New Zealand with the Pfizer vaccine. My tinnitus is ongoing. I have not had any medical assistance and my doctors are not interested. My husband who had the vaccines at the same time and place as as me also developed tinnitus within a week. My sister in law also developed tinnitus after her second Pfizer vaccine, she lives in Australia.. My friend who lives in England also developed tinnitus after her second Pfizer vaccine. I don't think this reaction is as rare as claimed.
