PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A North Hills woman, who said she was diagnosed with tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, after getting her COVID-19 vaccine is offering tips to others who may be experiencing the same thing.
Sally Sinagra said she got the Johnson and Johnson vaccine in March and two days later noticed her ear started feeling plugged.
“It wasn’t going away. The noise started and got worse and worse and worse,” Sinagra said.
She said she went to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor who told her she had tinnitus.
“They did some hearing tests and from all my symptoms, it’s tinnitus. I also got Meniere’s disease which is like a balance thing that comes from that.
This ringing sensation is called tinnitus.
