My rheumatologist has told me I have vasculitis, suspects Wegeners as my lungs and sinuses are affected. I also have sjorgren's and under active thyroid.
I take thyroxin and plaquenil and naprosyn. I had alot of pain in my joints but this has improved since taking meds. I was on prednisolone until January.
I work just 10hours a week in an office and today one of my colleagues said she was itchy since she's had the shingles vaccine, her arm had been bruised and swollen at the site of the injection.
My boss knows my diagnosis but I work in the office on my own most of the time so the rest of the team probably are unaware of my illness. Indeed I'm still learning
I'm thinking I need to speak to boss and perhaps let staff know my health status, but what do you think I should do? I don't have any concerns with people knowing, it just hadn"t been necessary, until now, those that needed to know such as family and friends etc do.
Also should I be at all worried by having been around my colleague today?
