Hi,

Just a quick one, did anyone get sick with sarcoidosis after any type of vaccine?

And what are your feelings on vaccines in general?

    I think vaccines are absolutely safe and necessary. Nothing to do with sarcoid.

      Ok thank-you. I just wondered I have been reading up on several different ones and with my history I only got sick after I had a vaccine in 2009 I often wonder if it is linked.

      In many ways, first of all in 2010 I had it on my lungs and slightly on my spleen. Then in 2015 was told that it had come back onto my spleen so much so that it had doubled in size also on my liver, my lings and also my legs.

      Most recently I have been told.i will have to go.for an mri to check my brain because of reoccurring headaches that I have had now for many weeks.

      I'm sorry, Amanda. Sarcoidosis is the pits. They really don't know what causes it. I know a lot of first responders on 9/11 got it which points to breathing environmental junk, but I know I never was exposed to anything. Talk to your doctor but I feel quite certain that it is coincidental that you got sick after the flu shot. It's actually important to get your shot so that you don't get the flu. I have some in my brain also but it doesn't cause any severe symptoms. Best of luck to you.

      Hi,

      It wasn't the regular flu jab, the vaccine I had has been proven to be linked with narcolepsy which is an auto immune disease so has just had me thinking. Last year I did get flu and pneumonia jab and by Feb I had both sickness so I'm thinking twice about it this year.

      I am going to chat to my doc about it all.

      I'm sorry to hear it's on your brain I hope you get well soon

      Thank you

    I got my Sarcoid immediately after getting EPV (Epstein Barr Virus) which is the virus that causes Mono.
