Write-up: For the past two weeks, PT has had a problem that does not resolve. Received third Moderna dose (100 micrograms) on 8/26/21 in left arm. The only noticeable side effect was stronger arm pain than after the previous doses, and this went away after about 12 hours. About two weeks later, on 9/12/21, she awoke with extreme dizziness/vertigo, vomiting, and incapacitating muscle ache in left shoulder and left side of neck. This pain shifted after several days to all of neck. Around 9/15/21, she tried the Epley maneuver for the dizziness, but this made the dizziness worse. PT spoke to her doctor on the phone on 9/17/21. GP prescribed a prednisone regimen that will end on 9/27/21. She also went in to the doctor''s office on 9/20/21. Prednisone has resolved the pain problem. But the dizzy spells remain. Every night when getting up during the night and every morning when arising is dizzy and unstable enough to need help walking anywhere. The dizziness disappears by noon or early afternoon. After that, she feels just about normal and steady on legs, able to take a 30-minute walk. Yesterday, 9/23/21, she even ran a bit, optimistic that problems were over. On the contrary, the dizziness this morning, 9/24/21, was even worse than before. Prior to 9/12/21, Pt was a very active person who played tennis, swam, walked, and/or ran for several hours a day. The persistent dizziness over the past 2 weeks has forced her to change her lifestyle significantly. Questions include: 1) Could this be a delayed reaction to the Moderna 100-microgram 3rd dose?; 2) If so, what might be the best treatment for continued severe dizziness that has been most pronounced in the morning?; and 3) How long might such a reaction last? Thank you very much.
