As I have been reading here, some have mentioned their symptoms developed after receiving a vaccine. This got me thinking also because this is flu season and every year I debate whether or not to have the flu vaccine. Many years ago about 25 was the first and only year I had the flu shot and then I came done with Epstein Barr & then Mono then I was diagnosed with Connective Tissue Disease, then tested positive for Lupus, which are all connected to Fibro as an autoimmune disease.

Not to any vaccine that I recall but terrible flare ups after viral infection.
I know there is research on a connection with the herpes virus to fibromyalgia, of which icludes mono, EBV, cyomegalovirus and parvo. I have had all of these in my early 20's plus a MVA with soft tissue damage to my upper body. Trauma plus virus ? After getting West Nile virus in 2012, my fibromyalgia flared for over 1 1/2 years. I wish this was taken more seriously. 90% of sufferers are women as autoimmune is predominantly women. That's why I call it the F word on my Pinterest board. I'm going to try adding Lysine to my supplement regime.
I posted a question about vaccines a few days ago, but mine developed after the HPV vaccine 12 years ago Which I didn't need but didn't know that. I Was assured it was safe and necessary. Ha
This is the first year my PC Doctor has told me not to get a flu shot. I ask every year even tho I know I am not going to get one. I read an article that stated not to get the nasal spray if you have autoimmune problems because the nasal spray is live virus. I have never had the flu ever.
No, like after West Nile Virus, cytomegalovirus, parvo virus, and any common virus like Noro (stomach flu). I just can't bounce back. Now I've had surgery with injury complications and the c diff for 1 1/2 years. I've home and in bed for over 2 years. I am just now feeling like I might come around. So frustrating.
