I had second Covid immunization 2 weeks ago. As days have passed, I feel my old "flare markers" developing. First lower back pain and hip SI joint irritated. Then, both shoulders began to be painful...eg dressing, turning over in bed, carrying packages from marketing trips. Feeling pretty desperate, I took 4 extra mg. Pred over the weekend, and feel some relief at the new level of 10 mg.
Question...has anyone else experienced flare symptoms following the injection? I received Phizer drug with little discomfort at the time of injection, but at this 2 week post-injection time, it sure looks like a flare to me. There are no other obvious aggravating conditions.
I see my doc next week, but she pretty much lets me manage my PMR/Pred. So I thought I'd check with you, the real experts, on this topic.
Thanks for your thoughts, in advance, and Be Well.
