This might seem a strange question but has anyone had a flu vaccine and if so did it aggravate their Gerd?
I have noticed that lots of medication, such as hay fever medication which is inhaled, cold remedies, which are inhaled and of course pills which are ingested can really set my Gerd off and one of my main symptomns when the Gerd acts up is the feeling that I can't breathe - I can it just feels very much as though I can't.
And this is my concern with the flu jab. So if anyone has had it I would appreciate any feedback as to how it affected your Gerd, and hopefully it didn't affect it at all.
And I thank you in advance and wish you a good day.

Great question.  I have never had any problems with the flu vaccine but your Dr. may have more info re this topic.

I've also been fine with the vaccine. I had flu last winter and that certainly was very bad from the GERD point of view!!

Well thanks all, that's good to hear. It certainly gives me the confidence to go and get the flu jab.
