    Thankyou for youre reply.
    I have seen my Dr about the flareup. But didnt think it was AstraZeneka until someone else has had the same thing regarding M.E and astraZeneka ( excuse my grammar . My brains not functioning properly).

    OK I don't know much about it but there is a reporting statement called yellow card to report reactions to the vaccine I presume its through NHS website

    Hello @sharon63 and welcome to our community,

    A flare up of M.E. isn't a recognised side effect of any of the COVID-19 vaccines. For more information on known side effects, please see these respective patient information leaflets:

    Whilst, please use this Yellow Card reporting website to report any suspected side effects to vaccines/medication that may concern you.  

    Unfortunately flare-ups of health conditions can happen at anytime and it may well be purely coincidental timing around having your vaccine.  Has your GP given you a treatment plan to help settle your flare-up?

    I hope you feel better soon, take care :)

    I have to say this more things have come to light with different illnesses and side affects that happen it has all been reported not all side effects are put on any medication because it would would be like writing a book  no one realy knows what its going to cause how people are going to react 

    Everyone is different not long ago they were saying you had to have the same vacination the second time thst you had first now that has changed 

    There are going to be different side affects for different people  things are changing every day and things are going to keep on changing 

    There  could be certain parts of the vacination that people react to or reacts with medication people take 

    We don't know do we

     Hi @sharon63. I have had ME for 8 years and had the AstraZeneca vaccine. I didn't have any reactions to it at all not even a sore arm.
