Hya. I had my flu jab on Tuesday, and now I have a "Lovely Flare". Do you think that's what's brought it on? Or was I going to get it anyway? I got the jag in my right arm, and it's my right ankle, knee, thigh and hip? that are playing up. (Agony). Anyone else had this after there jab?
Flu jab and flare ups: Hya. I had my flu jab on Tuesday... - NRAS
I'm Lucky with my Dr now. She is great. Wasn't with the other one at my practice, but he has left now. I had been going for over a year about different symptoms and wasn't getting anywhere. Then I managed to get a newly qualified young Dr. Straight away she said what she thought it was. Got the blood tests done. That was it diagnosed RA.
Was starting to feel that I could get back to work soon. The only thing that worried me was my wrists being weak. (I work in a pub) but now this has happened. Put me right back.
Hya Tinwoman2. I don't usually have problems with injections. But then again I've never had any injections since I have been diagnosed with RA. Buts its not just my arm just now it's all my right side. But everyone reacts differently to the flu jag. But it might not be that and I am just having a flare. Just my luck. X
Well I was going to write 'flu jab and flareup... No! But in reflection my knees have been a bit tender and slightly swollen over the past 10 days or so - I had my flu jab on the 19th September (had the flu jab for past 4 years and not had any noticible 'reactions' before or maybe just not joined the dots up before?)
Hi. My symptoms started after taking a flu jab 3 years ago. I also read on this forum about someone who had a similar problem. This is my personal opinion but I think that injecting so many viruses into your body may overburden the immune system and cause it be on hyperactive, thus a flare up. Again this is my theory. Good luck
The only thing the flu vaccine prevents (especially when given to people on immune suppressant meds, ) is it prevents your doctor from being hounded from the NHS , CDC,or insurance companies or healthcare group for not giving you a flu vaccine. You cannot have a strong enough immune response to make enough antibodies for any of the supposedly current flu mutations. Last year flu vaccine was worthless anddid not match the current flu. Read up what foreign materials are being injected into you. A bad reaction doesn't have to show itself immediately it can take months or years for adverse immune responses to present itself and nobody will be able to match it to one of the the flu jabs they gave you. There are thousands of people or their doctors reporting adverse reactions every year including death. Many doctors do not report adverse events. If you have antibodies to any autoimmune disease but don't present with disease it may be beneficial to have retesting of autoimmunity and disease markers within a year. I haven't had any flu vacs in the past 10 years and no flu sickness either and live in a big city and take mass transit. The last flu vac in 2009 I felt sick aand achy afterwards. Also a family member who willingly got a flu vac came down with lupus and sjorgrens days after a flu vac. If you want to check immune response ask your doctor to do a flu immunity titer to see if you have made enough AB.
