I have a high see reactive proteins. I have chronic information that we do not know the cause of yet. Should I get the Covid vaccine?
Mayo Clinic recommends that all eligible people to get the COVID vaccine.
Stay up-to-date with the latest information and medical evidence by visiting (and revisiting) Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Guide website:
– Vaccine Guide https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccine
Specifically, you may wish to read the recommendations for people with underlying conditions here:
– Can I get a COVID-19 vaccine if I have an existing health condition? https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccine-if-preexisting-health-conditions
Your doctor is your best source of information on whether the vaccine is right for you.
I have a feeling that auto-correct created some interesting spelling in your message. Did you mean "chronic inflammation" rather than "chronic information"? What do you mean by "High Crossfit"?
I have chronic inflammation, which I am having tests run on. Last year my hair fell out, I lost 40 pounds for absolutely no reason. I had a cyst on my hand and a trigger finger that is now gone away when I went to a plant-based diet. My heart was racing so they put me on some medicine for that.I have a high C reactive protein level. Checking in to GI issues including a tortuous colon.
I am gluten-free, dairy free, only eating a plant-based diet with liquids or soft foods. I am nauseous if I eat anything else and it does not seem to go through the digestive tract well, so I do intermittent fasting. I had dry heaves in the morning for over a year, but changing what I eat helped that, I just can’t eat much at all.My neurologist said that I should not get the vaccine because inflammation could go to my heart or brain. The left side of my face swells up huge if I eat something wrong.
I have been pretty isolated during Covid. I quit my job as a principal and I am teaching remotely from my home. My primary care physician tried to send me to Mayo, but insurance will not work there. I am having a endoscopy October 8. through Kansas City G.I.
I read that a high C reactive Protane could lead to a very bad case of Covid and has a higher mortality rate. I am afraid of the side effects from the vaccine, I don’t know which is worse.
Hopefully after the endoscopy they will be able to tell what’s going on.
Do you have any advice?

@brendabock, thank you for explaining and providing more background. This is a question that fellow patients and Connect members cannot answer. It is best to listen to the advice of your doctors. I hope you get more answers after the endoscopy. Do share with them the effect isolation is having on you as well. Mental health is as important as physical health.
Do your research and listen to your gut….
