I recently had the 2010 flu combination shot, and three days later i started having symptoms of vertigo. The symptoms proceeded to get worse, the nausea, cold sweats, and the feeling of everything around me spinning. I had to go to the ER and get meds. and be tested, cat scan, EKG, in case it was a life threatening problem. I have never had vertigo before. I didn't hit my head or have fall down to have caused the vertigo, and I didn't have a cold or flu symptoms. It lasted 3-4 days. Can the flu shots give you vertigo ?
