I woke up this morning with unexplained vertigo approx. 24 hours after receiving the flu vaccine. No nausea, no headache, no fever, no rash. No signs of congestion, postnasal drip. I am not dehydrated either, and while i can't measure urine specific gravity at home, both quantity and color are appropriate for adequate hydration. Perhaps the vaccine manifests itself differently in individuals. I do believe the vaccine is connected in some manner with this symptom as there was no other significant changes in my daily routine over the past 2 weeks. As for what to do about the vertigo: consult with you provider, consume adequate amounts of clear non-caffeinated liquids, rise slowly from sitting to standing, avoid fast movements.View Thread
