I was wondering if anyone has experienced a flare up following the Covid Vaccine. I had the Pfizer. The first jab just gave me a sore arm for 24hrs, however following the second jab within three days I became very lethargic and developed a massive bursitis on my elbow (same arm as the jab) By the end of the first week I couldn’t move my wrists, hands, fingers, my shoulders became inflamed and now I appear to have general muscle pain in both arms. Im a RA sufferer on Methotrexate, which has been managed very well for the past 10 years, I have always had minor flare ups however this sudden flare up is the worse I have experienced since my initial diagnosis and has bought on Fybromyalgia at a level I have never ever experienced. I have been resting but fear the symptoms are not abating, I am at times in excruciating pain.
Could it just be a coincidence or has the Covid jab caused my immune system to become over reactive. Would be interested to hear of anyone else having the same experience. Thank you for reading
