    Re: shingrix shigles vaccination

    Hi Patched. I have not had the vacine; however, I have MS, very similar to Fibro in many respects. My doctor had me scheduled for the vaccine for next week and I decided to call my neuro and talk to him about it.

    He told me absolutely under NO CIRCUMSTANCES to get that vaccine. He said that every patient he has who has gotten it has had a complete miserable relapse. One even came down with Shingles a month after the vaccine...
    So, you are not alone. I decided to not get the vaccine next week and cancelled my appointment. Im sure my PCP will not be happy...but my neuro pretty much runs my life as far as what I do and do not do.

    Go see your doctor who handles your fibro..maybe they can give you some steroids or something to help you over this hurdle. Feel better!
