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!

Yes i did for all three shots but i still believe in vaccinations. It just sucks that it wakes up the RA monster.

I had a week of pain after the second jab of Pfizer. Then I got shingles for the first time. I thought it was a rash from bug bites and didn't get treatment in time. I'm still suffering with nerve pain from shingles.
