Although I was never offered one I thought I had better have a flu jab as the cold I succumbed to just before Christmas was so bad I didn't want to risk having flu with an immune system compromised by pred. So, I asked my G.P. for one he said it would be a good idea. However, I am now suffering from a PMR flare this evening. My shoulders and upper back ache so bad.
I have looked at other posts on the subject and it seems there have been mixed reactions. Some people have been fine whereas others have also had a flare. I suppose as the killed vaccine stimulates the immune system it can happen that a flare of inflammation can occur. I was really hoping it wouldn't happen to me! I am reluctant to increase my pred dose so will see if the pain settles in a couple of days.
