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

Normal; Symptoms started right after second dose, if I recall correctly. First dose was 01/12/21 EL0142 Second dose was 02/02/21 EL3248 I reported it in the automated questionnaire multiple times. Received zero response.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Significant tinnitus for approx 6 months. Now mostly just at night in a very quiet room. Reported it on vaccine monitoring system more than once. Reviewed reports of this as possible side effect in other countries but in US CDC said it was not side effect.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

To sleep used loud fans and Motrin seemed to help the first 3 months. Now use soft fans at night and ignore it. There is low ringing now most of the time which I don’t “hear” unless I think about it. But for the first several months really effected my sleep and made me frustrated and mad.

Which solutions were not helpful?

Trying to ignore it and sleep in quiet room.

What would you like others to know?

I don’t think my risk of severe illness for age and health factors made the vaccine worth the risk of this. Just went on way too long and I suspect will always be there. Don’t share my last name please. I am a nurse and could lose my job.
