I have been reading all about the problems with the live shingles vaccine shot. I had the live shot and three months or so later I was diagnosed with PMR. No one told me about that being a side effect. I have had pmr for over 3 years and can't get below 12mg. I am wondering if the vaccine is still active and causing me to have this problem with decreasing the pred? I couldn't find anything on the subject and wondered if anyone has read anything about it. No point in asking the dr. he will just roll his eyes at me.
Now they want me to have the new vaccine. Also, they want my husband to get the vaccine and I am really scared for him. We don't need two people with pmr in the family.
