I have had both injections of the Pfizer covid vaccine. The first rocked my world and kept me down for 3 days, extreme joint pain, fatigue, chills, headache everything you don’t want. I nearly decided against the second dose. I took the second dose 2 weeks ago and haven’t had any problems besides fatigue the first 48 hours after.

Yes, I have been on a few other medications too. Methotrexate didn't work for me.

Yes the dr has changed several meds on me just trying to get something to work. Sometimes it just a wait and see game.

That Diclofenac is another name for Voltaran, my husband put it on his shoulders. I tried it by rubbing it on my hands but it didn't do a thing for my hands, gave the tube to my husband.
