Is there a link between Fibromyalgia and Vaccines? – New Life Outlook

“A recent study focused on the connection between fibromyalgia and the hepatitis B vaccine. Researchers found that some patients who received the vaccine later showed ASIA syndrome symptoms and suffered from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. There is a link that needs to be studied with a larger group of patients.” (Source)

Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia following immunization for hepatitis B vaccine: another angle of the ‘autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvents (ASIA)
“This study suggests that in some cases CFS and FM can be temporally related to immunization, as part of ASIA syndrome. The appearance of adverse event during immunization, the presence of autoimmune susceptibility and higher titers of autoantibodies all can be suggested as risk factors. ASIA criteria were fulfilled in all patients eluding the plausible link between ASIA and CFS/FM.”

Fibromyalgia, infection and vaccination
“Associations have been described between various vaccinations and symptom complexes including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The case of Gulf War syndrome, a functional multisystem entity sharing many clinical characteristics with fibromyalgia is discussed, with emphasis on the possibility of association with administration of multiple vaccinations during deployment in the Persian Gulf and the interaction with stress and trauma. Based on this example a model is proposed, wherein vaccinations function as co-triggers for the development of functional disorders including fibromyalgia, in conjunction with additional contributing factors.”
