Covid-19 Vaccine


Thu, March 11, 2021 6:18 PM

I has ulcerative colitis and I was diagnosed 10 years ago. Have been in remission for awhile now, currently taking lialda. My primary Dr. Suggested a take fish oil to lower cholesterol and I did now around the same time I took first covid-19 vaccine (moderma) and shortly after my colitis flared up. Wondering if anyone had had issues with fish oil and/or the vaccine. Took 2nd dose and stopped fish oil and still having issues.

The best advice I can give you is consult your colitis doctor so he can do some laboratory test if the covid vaccine have side effect on you. Don't risk your health by just asking here in the forum. Since I am already here, I am glad to introduce the game I played in the spare time, it is Cyberika: Action Adventure Cyberpunk RPG, I really love this game and you are interested you can join me. Additionally, download good pizza on games.lol for free.
