    It doesn't seem a stretch to me that people are reporting vertigo following the Shingrix vaccine. It is, after all, to prevent Shingles which is a manifestation of the Herpes virus. Many of us on here (including JOH) have been saying that the latent Herpes virus is at least a good part to blame for our MD troubles.

    So if you are injecting yourself with something that contains viral fragments or pieces or whatever that is supposed to trigger your immune system to react to the Herpes virus... seems logical that our bodies will go into MD mode with this Herpes stimulation...

    In other words - so far people seem to be tolerating the COVID vaccine just fine but for MD sufferers... Shingrix specifically may trigger vertigo...

    How would you describe your dizziness, Lax12mom? Are we talking drink ginger tea, and you may not be able to walk/sit-up straight, or was your experience 24/7 phenergan, sleeping on the bathroom floor? Regardless, I'm still getting the vaccine, just curious on your assessment.

    I had one bad night. The room was spinning. The rest of the time it was just that off balance feeling. Just not quite steady on my feet. It was like my head was congested starting with my Meniere’s ear. I’m better now but still have tension in my head and neck.

    Thank you for sharing the information. It's helpful to know how varied the response to the vaccine has been for everyone.

    Has anyone received the J&J vaccine that was NOT in the trial? My spouse, veteran, received his with ten minutes notice. Glad we live close enough to VA! A little curious though, as he doesn't qualify yet by any state guidelines. Clearly, the VA is handling things in-house. Just grateful he got one. State officials already announced vaccine appointments are booked through April. Fingers crossed for May, I guess?:(

    I had my J&J single dose covid vaccine yesterday. It's been about 30 hrs since the shot and so far it has not affected my ear in any negative way, no dizziness, no vertigo, no increase in tinnitus. I'm on month 2 of no vertigo attacks (after 6 months of vertigo hell) so I'm also in a good phase with my ear right now too which I'm sure helps. I am having the common vaccine side effects though witch started in the middle of the night last night, headache, chills and muscle aches. I'm hoping tomorrow I'll start feeling better.

    Neither dose affected the MM. Good.

    I had the first Pfizer jab approximately 60 hours ago. Sore shoulder the day after, kind of lethargic, and mild headache the day after—all good now. The jab has had NO effect on my Meniere’s symptoms so win/win in my book!

    Update on spouse who received the one dose J & J:
    He’s experienced no ear symptoms at all, however, wouldn’t expect him to as he has no prior history of ear disease. He experienced slight fever and headache the day after the shot. Then the next day he felt aches/pains and like he had the flu, headache still present. He just wanted to sleep for two days. He’s feeling much better now, but still having some aches/pains.
