Hello @curtaincall, thank you for opening this discussion! Let me tag some other members who can possibly share their experiences.
Hi everyone, how are you today?
Have you gotten the COVID-19 vaccine? Which vaccine did you get? Did you have any side effects? Have or will you get the booster vaccine?

@curtaincall , I got the booster shot today for covid, and feel okay tonight, but I also had a lot of muscle pain after the second one, but after a month it went away. My doctor suggested injections, in my arms, but I held off and he said to try voltarin four times a day first. Either that worked, or it was just time. Hope you decide to take the shot, be safe from covid.
Tylenol helping me today after booster yesterday. A little achy in muscles, but doing well.
@Dandylu Thank you for sharing, I feel better knowing I'm not the only one who had a reaction to it! Maybe I can ask my doc about something for the muscle pain beforehand. Last time I took Tylenol before and after and it just wasn't enough. I'll have to give voltaren a try

Hi I've had fibro for a while now and I had some severe side effects from the COVID vaccine. It's made me seriously wonder about my fibro and question getting the booster since it was really rough with the first two...
Has anyone else had side effects from the vaccine or gotten the booster dose yet?
