Has Anyone Had A RA Flare-up After Covid Vaccine?

Has Anyone Had A RA Flare-up After Covid Vaccine?

About three weeks after I had my first covid-19 vaccine I had one of the worse RA flare-ups that I’ve ever had. Also changed the inflammation medication I was taking during the third week after shot. Know idea if the vaccine could have caused the attack, afraid to take second shot. Anyone else had RA problems after vaccine!

What is your usual dose of steroids for a flare up? Just curious how other doctors do a taper.

They are rough on your body...have to weigh out the side affect and pain level. Like I said do the 7 day Pac only when necessary

Pain Cream

Pain Cream

Has anyone tried Arthritis Wonder cream? I'm trying to find new things to try. It's got wogonin in it. I'm not real sure what that is. My knees are so bad. Anyone else have any suggestions for inflammation/pain relief? I've tried a lot of different things. I'm ready to branch out again!

Rituximab

Rituximab

I am starting this new medication in November.
I have been told that the first dose will take up to 6 hrs to be delivered into my system.
I have not been told whether I will need another 15 days later.
But have been told that I will get another dose every 6 months is this right?

Has anyone ever had a vaccine trigger a flare? I am going to talk to my rheumatologist about it but wanted to see if anyone on… read more
