Controlling Tinnitus: What works for you?

I received Pfizer. I’m 66 and just received second dose on August 15. I waited,stayed safe because I just new a booster would happen. After both my ears have been worst. Today is my best day but it did intensify my ringing both times. Wish CDC would list all side effects. I know many folks who have suffered all sorts of different issues long term but are happy to be vaccinated. My hope is after time it will level out. I’m not taking any drugs. I’ve been through that years ago and side effects were not worth it. Best of luck. I think it will settle down..Joanne

Sorry to hear you had tinnitus after your vaccine. I saw your wish that CDC list all side effects. I suspect that this may happen in the future, but with the new vaccine, data is still being collected and evaluated.

In VAERS there were 9000 reports of tinnitus after vaccine – around 2% of all VAERS reports, and about 4000 consulted a doctor. But out of over 200,000,000 people who have received vaccine, that amounts to about 5/100,000.

I suspect that worsening of many previous conditions after vaccine is the result of our immune systems ramping up, and sending whatever caused the condition in the first place to get worse temporarily. Thinking back to vaccination, my tinnitus got worse, but I didn't even connect the two because just about anything from a cold to loud noise can change it too. As I sit here today, I can hear the crickets, but yesterday the ringing was so loud I didn't.

Here is some food for thought:
If EVERY potential side effect from sore arm and fever, to tinnitus, to neuropathy, no matter how rare, were listed at the door of the vaccine clinic, how many people would turn away?
How many people would end up with a Covid infection and far worse consequences instead?

I hope as your system settles down and the tinnitus recedes to its previous leve.
