Strange buzzing in head, electricity, migraine

Edited , 4 users are following.

My wife tested positive 10 days ago. I have been consistently negative. Both of us have the same vaccine (Johnson).

She experienced some rather common symptoms: Mild fever, cough and so on. But on day 5 she lost her sense of smell/taste and around that time she also got this strange sensation in the head.

She is having a hard time describing how it feels, but it is very unpleasant and persistent. It's not a headache as such. She describes it as the feeling of electricity going through her brain. She says she feels almost a bit drunk, and I guess it can be best described as a strange kind of migraine.

Painkillers and NSAIDs seem to make no difference. Caffeine/coffee makes no difference (maybe a bit for the worse). Warm baths make no difference. Walks and fresh air makes no difference (maybe momentarily for the worse). We have also tried e.g. ginger, zinc and Q10 but the symptoms remain the same (but maybe such supplements needs a longer period).

She sleeps well and is able to chat, laugh and perform daily tasks without showing any lack of coordination or competence. But she complains that the feeling in the head is constant, intensely uncomfortable and seemingly unchanging. She says that it's much worse than having a headache and she is willing to do anything to make it stop.

Have anyone experienced something similar? Any recommendations for remedies to try?

    I would tell you that if it doesn’t stop to let her doctor be aware of this. Just to be on the safe side. She might be perfectly fine but it’s best to get checked out if symptoms persist. That’s true about the vaccine or coronavirus or any other health issue.

    when did she get the vaccine?
