Steroid Responsive Still’s Disease after COVID-19 Vaccination
Febrile Syndrome Includes Sore Throat, Joint Pain, and Myopericarditis
Approximately a third of COVID-19 vaccine recipients develop transient fever. It is important to recognize that a constellation of symptoms in addition to fever should prompt recognition of Still’s Disease. Adult onset Still disease, also known as systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by inflammatory polyarthritis, daily fever, and a transient salmon-pink maculopapular rash. A serum ferritin level of more than 1000 ng/ml is common in this condition.
Sharabi and colleagues described two cases of adult onset still disease after the Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Both cases were serious, involved myopericarditis, and required hospitalization and and treatment with pulsed corticosteroids. (See link for article)
I must mention that I had the maculopapular rash when I had COVID. It appears that this rash is associated with COVID infection and in some cases burns or in my case itches to high heaven. I write about the successful treatment I used here in the comment section.
I am a huge proponent for ivermectin as it has worked miraculously 3 different times for us but has been tyrannically censored. Within a day, symptoms abated. The first time I used it I waited too long (day 14?) but it still worked. It’s been shown to work for every stage of COVID, but the addition of IV C and IV ozone are sure to assist. We already take vitamin D and melatonin – also shown to help.
A lot of the above should sound familiar to most Lyme/MSIDS patients. At one point I had nearly every symptom mentioned. The catch, of course, is for those who got the injections on top of being ill with a misunderstood, complex illness, and not being able to parse out what is causing what. This is hard on a good day, but nearly impossible when it includes an experimental, fast-tracked gene therapy injections that nobody knows what’s truly in them, has been foisted upon an unsuspecting public that has caused more reports of adverse events and death than any other vaccine in the history of VAERS.
