What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
My shot dates are relative but basically a strong and sudden onset of tinnitus 48 hours after taking the Moderna shot in Stuttgart Germany. Some of the Tinnitus is high pitch ring (both) throb like when you yawn or stretch (both), wet finger on wine glass (left) and clicking (right). This has not gone away over a year later and everything below with the exception of Tinnitus may or may not be related to the vax.
A week later, I had to get out of bed due to some uncomfortable chest condition that I couldn't explain. This happened maybe 4 times. The doctor put me on a treadmill and said I can't possibly have a heart condition because I ran the mile too quickly but I did experience off and on days of no energy but who knows everyone has there bad days (week) so I'm not putting much weight on that.
Perhaps a coincidence but the audiologist said the Tinnitus was most likely caused by the Vaccine. In fact, JJ has it on the label I believe. My first shot was JJ a year prior in Bagram Afghanistan and did cause a slight ringing in my ear a few weeks later but I stopped noticing it until until 48 hours after the Moderna shot. The JJ shot earlier that year made me sick within hours and lasted for 3 days, convulsing and wheezing uncontrollably and a large headache all for the first 8-12 hours.
Maybe unrelated but my vision took a hit from 20/40 to 20/50 I think it was (mostly far sight took a hit suddenly and I mean quickly while I was walking down the street but this was 3 months later so I can't contribute the vaccine to it and my optometrist said it was most likely because I turned 40.
Also possibly unrelated but days after the JJ, I had to see a doctor for allergies for the first time in my life. I never was so red and swollen before. I couldn't explain it other than the shot. But I'm only adding this for data mining in case we find out in the future that it does heighten your allergies.
To be clear, there's no doubt the vaccine caused my Tinnitus due to the timing and that is confirmed by the audiologist. The fact that I have no hearing loss helps this case as hearing loss can cause Tinnitus. A quick google search shows Tinnitus can be caused by blood clotting. On a side note, I had a shimmering in both eyes months later which caused temp blindness for 20 minutes. Never had that happen before and may be completely unrelated but a quick google search also mentioned clotting or blood flow.
