Does anyone else have an annoying ringing or buzzing in the head or tinnitus?

was that the most recent version?
I am curious because I am one of those that is classified as "at risk" with COPD..
the first 4 were pretty mild symptom wise.. just made me a bit tired for a day or so. otherwise not bad

I had mixed reactions to mine previously, some mild, some bad, bad enough to take a couple of weeks to get over
but as I understand it, this latest Booster is a combination of the original Covid strain & Omicron from 2 different suppliers,
& that's what's making me extra cautious.
Plus, as I said, I'd like to know the difference between 'Long Covid' ongoing symptoms & vaccination-triggered ongoing symptoms.

And rightly so.. always a chance that things could go south with a new vaccine..
Knock on wood, I have not had Covid proper.. and hoping not to ever get it... but with people being the way they are.. there is always a chance.

My understanding of "Long Covid" - thus far - is it is a continuation of various symptoms that last long beyond the original infection.. completely different than any vaccine induced symptoms. But, I am no expert by any means. If you have questions, i would suggest asking your healthcare providers for any information they can offer.. or someone from the health services information offices? Somebody has to know something..

I admire your optimism cookiebaker & if you lived here in England you would understand the irony of the term 'Healthcare Providers'
because It's almost impossible to get an appointment to see a G.P. here, as you have to get past the Receptionists first, known as 'The Gatekeepers'.
They, in their wisdom (I,too, am now being ironic lol) will decide if your symptoms warrant a telephone appointment from a doctor you've not seen before & may have to wait days/weeks to hear back from, who will then, in turn, decide if you're urgent enough to be seen or not, in person in the near or not-so-near future but more likely it would be an internet discussion & woe betide you if you are not computer literate, or worse still have the misfortune to get referred to a Specialist &/or hospital, as the former have Waiting Lists of months, even years, as do the latter & who have all declared they cannot cope due to Covid backlogs & staff shortages of 160,000+ & still counting.
You would have to live here to understand the chaos in all our Public Services, especially the NHS, which is crumbling,
as are Social Services, Care Providers, etc etc.etc.
Those who can afford it go Private, the rest of us just 'Google it' & soldier on as best we can &/or die whilst on an-ever lengthening Waiting List.
That's why Forums like these are literally a Godsend for us & so appreciated.
Meanwhile, I just try & be thankful for the other blessings I do have such as a roof over my head, clean water in the taps, food in the kitchen
& living in peace - all priceless!

Thanks for your thoughts, it's made me read up some, so I don't go into my 3rd jab in 2 weeks blind-folded.
am still undecided about this latest double Covid vaccination, as there is even less information about ongoing vaccination side-effects, meaning I/we are not party to the full information we need to be able to make our own informed decisions.
I just found a Moderna study on pubmed which said it's been behaving OK, similar for Pfizer. We rightly waited a bit first time round till many healthier people'd tested the water for us. I doubt they're that much different, still built on the same principle.
I'm guilty of not having reported mine either yet - my docs are wary of doing so, even tho it's indisputably the jabs in my case. But I will be reporting soon. I keep wanting to wait till I'm better, so I can say how long it's been, but doesn't seem a good idea... 😜
latest Booster is a combination of the original Covid strain & Omicron from 2 different suppliers, & that's what's making me extra cautious.
From what I've read Pfizer and Moderna are each doing their own combination, so it's not a combination of suppliers, if that's what you mean. Or do you know different?
Plus, as I said, I'd like to know the difference between 'Long Covid' ongoing symptoms & vaccination-triggered ongoing symptoms.
Oh, I can tell you loads about that.... But looking at cookiebaker's take on it first...:
My understanding of "Long Covid" - thus far - is it is a continuation of various symptoms that last long beyond the original infection.. completely different than any vaccine induced symptoms. But, I am no expert by any means. If you have questions, i would suggest asking your healthcare providers for any information they can offer.. or someone from the health services information offices?

There are 3 kinds of long-term jab symptoms I know of: MCAS and post vac syndrome are the main ones. Allergy-type reactions may also be longer term, but usually shorter. Of these post vac syndrome is the most similar to Long Covid. But all 3 of them have fatigue as a core symptom. In that sense my MCAS has a little to do with PVS and with Long Covid, but I'm thinking they have more lung symptoms, I don't have any (altho MCAS can well have a lung aspect). In my experience neither healthcare providers nor health services information offices know anything about these distinctions. MCAS-experts say Long Covid may be a form of MCAS, but MCAS isn't officially recognized as a condition yet (altho it's on wikipedia, which is saying something...)
My partner had long covid and we both had the vaccination.
Good to know: the chance is much lower that you can still get it after jabs, but of course it can still happen....

Some of quite a few who make this connection between Long Covid and MCAS:
Help for long Covid - foods to avoid - supplements to take - with Dr Tina Peers, specialist in MCAS. (dp2sMQi4PUo)
or What is the evidence for MCAS in long Covid? - Dr Bethan Myers (KjVE0Fsfm8c), a short more scientific overview.


Them not referring to the jabs, not that I can find, to me again confirms that (Long) Covid would be worse than the jabs even for me, so like my allergist is recommending me, I'm carry on with my 1st booster, bivalent next Monday.

They're also not generally referring to fibromyalgia, to me mirroring that fibro may be a part of MCAS only in some.
In my case the symptom sets of MCAS and FM are fairly separate, with only partial overlap (increased fatigue).
