← Return to AIHA Hemolytic Autoimmune Anemia and Covid-19 Vaccine reactions

Hi! I got diagnosed with AIHA when I was 13 and i’m currently 18. I haven’t been on any medication for about 2 years after I got a treatment that worked really well. I recently got my 2nd vaccine shot about a week or 2 ago. I haven’t really thought much into how I was feeling from the shot because I just figured I would feel fine but for the first time in years i’m experiencing my symptoms again. I’m hoping it’s just a mini flare up i’ve been feeling like this for a little under a week but just now started thinking it was related to my AIHA since I haven’t thought about it in so long. I’m going to call and make an appointment to check tomorrow.

@brynnolivia I think that they should have warned about autoimmune conditions. In my case, dose 2 of vax brought on a bad case of (autoimmune) colitis, not gone away after 6 weeks. I regret having it. I was fine, even walking around NYC without a mask.

Hello @bvgims and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Good idea to get an appointment and get things checked.

Depending on your outcome, you may wish to report your symptoms to VAERS. https://vaers.hhs.gov/

Will you come back and share what you learn?

Hi. I hope you are feeling better now. My daughter was diagnosed with AIHA when she was 10. She is now 18, and is still on medication to treat the AIHA. If you are comfortable, can you share with me the treatment that worked well for you and allowed you to stop medication. My daughter had the Pfizer vaccine, and it did not seem to adversely affect her AIHA.

Thank you for sharing my doctor has me waiting for this exact reason I hope you feel better soon
