Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

"I had COVID in January and only had sinus pressure and a loss of taste and smell for a few days. No other symptoms. Recovered and had no other issues. I received the J&J vaccine at the end of June. Beginning at the end of July I started having sinus pressure, feeling like my ears need to pop like on an airplane. I just started seasonal allergy meds because I usually have those issues toward the end of summer. A few weeks of treating with allergy meds resulted in no change, but I started to have tinitus and hyper acoustics. I took an audio test and was diagnosed with hearing loss and sent to an ENT. The ENT sent me for an MRI and is in the process of giving me a series of steroid injections in my eardrum to hopefully restore the hearing loss. So far no change. In the midst of this, I started to have GI issues. I went through a series of tests (bloodwork, Ultrasound, stool) that were all normal. At this point I am avoiding cheese because that seems to make me sick, but other dairy does not. I don't want my story posted, but I want you to have it for your data collection efforts. I am a 48 year old female. Thank you for doing this!
