I took the lead and had the first shot of Shingrix. Shingrix is the new shingles virus vaccine that is safe for people with immune compromised systems and is 99% effective. I will need to have a second booster shot 2-6 months from now. I was told my arm at the injection site would be sore for a couple of day.... well that was true and then some! My arm was sore and I believe I have what is called a “flare” with my PMR. Every muscle in my body aches. It has been hard to sleep because just trying to turn over or pull up blankets is painful. I am trying to remain at jt 4mg Prednisone so after taking that in the morning I feel better and can function but still have aches and pains in my neck and shoulders. I now know what to expect with the booster shot. I am hoping that I start to feel better tomorrow so I can make it to work.
