RA Flare Following Covid Vaccine... Anyone Else?

Last updated: May 2022

I was diagnosed about 30 years ago.

Consistent rheumatoid arthritis pain

The only time I’m not in pain is when I’m on prednisone for my asthma.

I always forget what it feels like for other people who do not live with constant, chronic pain.

I always forget what “normal” feels like which makes me really sad.

RA flare after covid vaccine?

I got my vaccine and my pain and exhaustion are 1000 times worse. I’m barely functioning.

I’m teaching remotely and I can’t manage to do that either, let alone take care of myself or the household.

My husband doesn’t understand. As a side note, I’ve never taken any RA meds because the side effects scare me.

Anyone else out there completely unable to function following their covid vaccine???
