      Unknown/possible Pfizer vaccine
      Hi, I'm 57 and my tinnitus started on 12/29/2022. I can think of no cause except that I had my 3rd Pfizer shot on the 7th of December 2021. It's a low "static" sound that is constant. At this time, I believe I can live with it, but what has me more concerned is a slight pressure feeling around my temples that starts mid day, at worse it's a slight headache. It's a "foggy" feeling in my head that doesn't go away. My balance seems fine.

      I saw an ENT 1 week ago and was told I didn't have any ear wax and also had an audiogram and my hearing was normal. He told me a had tinnitus and that was about it.

      I would like to know if the pressure in my head is common with tinnitus? I also should mention I have hypertension and currently take an ACE inhibiter and a calcium channel blocker, have been for the past 7 years. My blood pressure has not spiked up recently so I don't think there is a connection.

      Any thoughts or opinions on the pressure in my head and connection with tinnitus would be appreciated.

      @geeps20, I've heard of many with them same kind of symptoms after both COVID-19 and vaccine.

      Usually these symptoms pass with time, but it might take some time.

      Many have had these symptoms subside after anything from a couple of weeks after the vaccine kick in, to 4-6 months +.

      We are all different.

      Give it some time, that's your healer.

      And try not to let it stress you out too much...
