Our lives have been turned upside down after Gardasil.

My daughter had a 3.8 GPA without even trying.

She failed all her classes since Gardasil.

My daughters health has been in serious decline since she received her Gardasil injections. Within hours she was vomiting, feverish with a terrible headache. She could not get out of bed for almost 3 weeks. I called the doctor regarding her illness she said she must have received a bad flu shot. She was vaccinated with Gardasil at the same time as the flu vaccine.

She now passes out with any exertion, a simple walk will put her out. She suffers from weakness in her both legs. Soon after the second shot she was crying because her feet were hurting she was diagnosed later with peripheral neuropathy. She could barely walk and was put in 2 com casts to keep her feet from hurting.

She is still experiencing more then 4 migraines a month. She did have continual migraines for almost 3 weeks before they started to taper off.

At the age of 12 she was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovary syndrome. The doctor prescribed birth control pills so she would not constantly have her period. The pill was to regulate her because the bleeding was terrible. Will we no longer have that problem because she has not had a period since her first vaccination in November of 2007.

I am sending a list of the symptoms that my daughter has had or is currently suffering from. The good news is that she has only been to the ER twice In the last 2 months.

I attribute these bizarre symptoms and her illness to the Gardasil vaccine. This is a human experiment on our daughters and they have been injured.  I don’t want any other mother to go through what the Gardasil mothers are going through.

Tremors: hand
Migraines at first were almost constant.
Stomach Pain
Chest Pains
Leg Weakness
Brain Fog
Depression
Bronchitis
Numbness in her feet
Pins / Needles feelings through extremities and stomach
Possible heart issues has been referred to a cardiologist
Light Sensitivity
Diarrhoea
Fatigue: this is so bad she can barely move
Weakness
Rash
Fever
Blisters: never had them before but now she gets them sometimes.
Warts: not genital
Sore Throat: she had her tonsils and adenoids removed November of 2008
Vision Loss
Paralysis: in arm, temporary, after 3rd Gardasil injection
Fainting: once or twice weekly since third vaccination in June of 08, with slurred speech and loss of feeling of legs. However in the last 2 months she has only had two episodes. Maybe there is hope.
Severe flu symptoms: after 1st shot. High Fever chills. Could not get out of bed for 2 to 3 weeks
Wheezing
Aching Muscles: constantly in pain
Menstrual Cycle Changes
Peripheral Neuropathy both feet.
Bloody stool
High blood sugar: before it was always low
Sleep apnea
Degenerative disc disease: this was recently diagnosed

My daughter, Kristyn, received her first Gardasil shot on January 9th, 2009. Her doctor practically forced it on us and scared my daughter into getting it. My daughter was 15.

Shortly after receiving her first shot, she almost passed out while we were in Wal-Mart.

I thought it was from not eating, so I bought her a candy bar. She had a couple other times where she felt like she was going to pass out after that.

Her second shot was on March 9th, 2009, just one day after her 16th birthday. It was after the second shot that she started complaining of odd things.

Before getting the Gardasil shots, she was a healthy, happy, energetic 16 year old teenager.   After receiving the second shot, she was up all night one night with terrible leg pains in both legs. I figured it was just ‘growing pains’. Then after a few days, she was very dizzy and couldn’t walk straight. I did not realize what was going on until March 20th, 2009.

It was that Friday morning when I received an email concerning Gardasil and what it was doing to other girls. I got an email with a link to a young girl’s video on Youtube. The young girl’s name is Holly. (Her and her mother are both in a yahoo group called Let’s Talk About Gardasil that I’m a member of.) After watching that heart breaking video, I started researching and made the connection with Gardasil and my daughters’ problems.

It just so happened to be that same Friday that we ended up in the Emergency Room with my daughter. She was having leg pains in both legs, tingling in both legs, numbness in both legs and also her left arm. She had terrible weakness all over and just felt like she had no energy. She was in tears with the pain so I took her to the ER.

They did a CT scan and some blood work. They could not find anything ‘wrong’ with her but she kept saying that something was not right. The doctor advised that we not get the third Gardasil shot because she was obviously having a reaction to the vaccine.

I called her doctor’s office on Monday, March 23rd to tell them what was going on and what I had found. They said to bring her right in, so I did.

At first the doctor did not even want to discuss the link that I had found with Gardasil and the 10,000 plus reports that had been reported on VAERS. She dismissed it all and said that it couldn’t be Gardasil. I told her that there was no way that she could positively say that since this vaccine is SO new and had only been clinically tested for 5 years and not on girls from ages 9 thru 15 (that clinical study was stopped before it was concluded).

She did more blood work the next day (Tuesday, March 24th) and said it would be a week before we got the results back. I told her that all of the other girls that are sick or have died (47 deaths the last I checked), all of their tests seem to come back ‘normal’.

During this week, Kristyn got worse. She began to have back pain that went from her neck to her feet, terrible pressure in her head, involuntary muscle jerking, nausea, diarrhea, weight loss, severely tired, chest pains, rib pain, heart racing, I can’t even remember all of her symptoms.

She’s been back to the ER since then (by ambulance because of problems breathing) and has been unable to do her class work since this started. (most of the girls have had to drop out of school because they are SO sick!).

Now she is having problems with her vision and the light hurts her eyes.

I received a call from her doctor’s office telling me that she was diagnosed with Rheumatic Fever. They called in Penicillin for her to take. They basically have started acting like they aren’t interested in her.

Kristyn took her full round of penicillin. During the course of the medication, she seemed to feel better. But now that the penicillin is finished, her symptoms have started coming back.

Since this diagnosis, she’s been to other doctors.  Several of them have told me that diagnosing her with Rheumatic Fever would be very hard to do just based on her blood panel results.  So I don’t know if she has/had Rheumatic Fever or not.

Oh I forgot to mention, on January 9th when she got her first Gardasil shot, they also gave her Menactra (which I did not know they were giving her). Since I started researching this I found that Merck only tested Gardasil with Hep B vaccine. The reports of these side effects are off the chart when mixed with Menactra!

Some of these girls are having grand mal seizures, paralysis, pancreatitis, all sorts of STRANGE and unusual diagnosis and symptoms. We’re talking very healthy, active (some even very athletic) girls before Gardasil…now these same girls are very sick and nobody can find out what is going on.

I have an idea of what is going on but I’m no doctor. The Gardasil shots have 225 micrograms of reactive aluminium in each shot. 1 microgram is considered to be toxic!

My daughter has been allergic to nickel since she was born.  Maybe this is why my daughter is suffering, because of the aluminium that’s in the vaccine? A lot of the other girls that are having these types of symptoms are also allergic to costume jewellery, metals, etc.  Maybe THIS is another link?

Why have the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries chosen to experiment with the first ever, large scale application of a new, unproven, genetically modified, inter-species gene mixing vaccine technology on the female youth of an entire generation?

Under the ruse of attempting to eradicate cervical cancer, Merck is actually engaged in the first large scale, real world deployment and testing of genetically modified DNA, genetically engineered proteins and genetics produced by the combining of genetic material from more than one origin or species in a vaccine.

We just want some answers. They need to pull this vaccine off the market and do some further research! Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA and is now a mandatory vaccine in several states, with other states following suit.
It is an outrage what is happening to our daughters!

We have had several girls that have been interviewed by the media in several states, and some have been interviewed by their local newspapers. We are trying to get the word out as fast as we can because these doctors are dispensing this GardaHELL like candy every day…and every day that passes is that many more girls that will become very ill.

I did not know of any of this when I allowed that doctor to inject this poison into my daughter’s body. They said it was safe and that she even gave it to her own daughter.

I’ve since found out that most of the girls’ doctors that are sick said the same things to them!

One more thing…the last time we checked VAERS, there was almost 16,000 reports…that’s up from 10,000 since March 24th and they are backlogged, so that number isn’t even correct. And it’s estimated that only 1 to 10% adverse effects are even reported.

My daughter was taking a low dose birth control pill because she was having a ‘heavier than normal’ discharge.  Her doctor put her on the birth control to try and regulate this.

After she started having all of these side effects/reactions, she decided to throw the birth control in the trash.  She didn’t want anything going in her body.
Two weeks after throwing them in the trash, she got pregnant.  Now she is having to go through high risk doctors.  Her health is not good and now she is carrying a baby that could possibly be affected by the Gardasil.

Merck states that Gardasil is not recommended for pregnant women.  They have set up a registry on their site to follow women that get pregnant or are already pregnant and didn’t know it while having the Gardasil vaccine injections.  There are reports of spontaneous abortions and fetal abnormalities in women that were injected with Gardasil.

So not only are we dealing with all of the symptoms that Kristyn has… we are also worried about the baby.

I’m just sick of trying to talk to doctors about the links to Gardasil and hearing ‘it’s not the Gardasil’.  How can they be so certain?  This vaccine is NEW and was only tested for 5 years.  It would just be nice to finally find a doctor that would really look into this!  The doctors just seem to not want to deal with any of us if we even mention Gardasil to them!

I just want my healthy, happy and energetic teenage daughter back!!
Please educate before you vaccinate with the HPV vaccine Gardasil!
Gardasil is hurting and killing our beautiful daughters all over the globe!
My 16 year old daughter is one that has been hurt by getting vaccinated.  And I did not know the dangers beforehand.
Please get informed first!  I wish I had!

My 12yo daughter, my only child who has received the Gardasil vaccinations is now suffering from a neuromuscular disorder as a result of the vaccine.

She received the Garasil vaccine after our paediatrician recommended it, stating that it was time to start her on the vaccine and it was safe. I only knew that it protected you from several forms of cervical cancer and was also told it was mandatory in some states for girls ages 9-26 and was part of the recommended vaccinations that young girls her age should get.

My child’s reactions started around the 3rd dose. She began losing her balance while performing kick-jumps in karate class in which she had been in for 4 years. I just thought she wasn’t doing the kicks correctly and told her to try harder next time. The loss of her balance continued. She complained of severe cramping in both legs, tingling, pinpricking and nerves jumping in her hands and legs. She started experiencing headaches on and off. Tylenol sometimes minimally relieved the pain.

She had had a growth spurt over the last 3-4 months and I associated the headaches with the onset of puberty. She fainted in that 3-4 month window when her symptoms first began and continues to have weakness and near fainting episodes. She has had pain in her upper back and chest.

Within a couple weeks she started walking oddly. This walk became more prominent and more severe with her swaying from side to side, needing to spread her feet out for a wider base of support in order to carry her body.

I requested the paediatrician to refer my child to orthopaedics, thinking possibly she had a fractured ankle or foot. The paediatrician looked at her feet and ankles only, did not test reflexes or much of anything. The paediatrician flatly refused saying, “Oh no, its nothing more than a podiatry issue; something simple.” I disagreed telling the paediatrician it had nothing to do with podiatry – her feet looked OK, the problem was inside the ankle/foot where there was possibly a broken bone or fine hairline crack. I also mentioned that no x-rays had ever been taken to look for anything.

The paediatrician referred us to a podiatrist. We saw a podiatrist for the next couple of months who moulded her feet for shoe inserts in which insurance did not cover and told her to do foot exercises. He also took x-rays which showed no fracture. My child wore the shoe inserts and did foot exercises but did not get any better. Her ability to walk became worse and the kids at school began making fun of her calling her ‘penguin’.

I would tell my daughter to please try and walk straight as possible putting one foot before the other thinking that somehow she had developed a peculiar walking habit. I bought her better shoes with good soles and support, but nothing seemed to help. Then one day I happened to look at both legs, side by side, not just looking at her feet and ankles. It was quite obvious that one leg was wasting away – the muscles were shrinking and much smaller than the other leg. I knew then that this was serious.

I took her back to the paediatrician and showed her this. At this point, the doctor agreed she needed an orthopaedic referral. Was I ever furious! When we finally did get into to see the Chief of Orthopaedics at the Children’s Hospital he took one look, examined her, watched her walk and told me she has a neuromuscular illness and needed a specialist.

On Christmas Eve we were getting a spine MRI to see if possibly a lesion or something operable was causing the problem. The MRI was normal. From this time, 2 weeks before Christmas, we waited another month just to get the first appointment with a specialist. The appointment actually happened a couple days sooner than the actual set date once I emailed the specialist and asked, “Could my child’s illness be caused from HPV vaccines?” It was almost like a light had been turned on! He immediately phoned me, directed me to bring her to the clinic and plan for admission into the hospital. This is how we got the ball rolling and started figuring out the relationship to Gardasil.

She has had numerous tests to include a spinal tap. My child has now been hospitalized twice since Jan 09 and will be readmitted within the next few days again for another 2-3 days infusion therapy of immunoglobulin. It is thought the HPV vaccines caused her immune system to go into overdrive attacking the peripheral nervous system. The damage so far is in both legs – not just the covering of the nerves called the mylin sheath; but the nerves themselves, called axons.

The diagnosis initially was Chronic Inflammatory Demylinating Polyneuropathy in Jan 09 which is a chronic form of Guillian Barre syndrome. In Feb 09 the discharge diagnosis was similar to the month before being Mixed Axonal Inflammatory Demylinating Polyneuropathy.

This illness resulted from a so-called harmless recommended vaccination that has caused great devastation for my child and family. She doesn’t run or jump, nor does she move very fast at all anymore. She misses school because of the numerous medical appointments or is unable physically to attend.

The medication has side effects as well. I’m blessed that she still has an appetite, but on the other hand she’s gained weight because she’s more sedentary and that puts more strain on her legs.

Every morning I put thick long socks and braces on both of her legs and she holds out her hands so I can pull her up to a standing position so she can walk. In the evening when the braces come off I inspect her feet and legs for pressure points or blisters starting. Some days its too hard for her to carry her backpack to school, so I carry it in for her. The backpack has to be a certain kind with a long strap to place over her head in order to distribute weight evenly or else she’ll fall. She can’t come into the living room which is sunken down one step without falling. We’re working on accommodating for that. I have to constantly remind her to put her stronger leg first when stepping because she falls. She drags her feet and moves slowly. The braces cause fatigue and blisters. She’s recently been remoulded for a second set and hopefully they will work better.

The hospital stays are not the most enjoyable either even though the staff and doctors are great. It is not fun at all for a child to be stuck with needles at all hours, constantly forced to take medication and being woken up from her sleep, not to mention the side effects of the medications. Her life and mine have been devastated.

I blame myself for allowing the paediatrician to give her the HPV vaccines. I didn’t sign a consent form or anything, but I should have stopped them. I just plainly didn’t know the dangers. I thought it was like any other immunization. Had I known, read about it or been told that girls or young women have experienced side effects I surely would never have allowed my child to get this vaccine! Why wasn’t I informed? I’m mad, I’m really mad about that!

I saw the many, many commercials with the young girls, telling us to get the great vaccine that would prevent us from having cervical cancer. I thought, well that’s one disease that I won’t have to worry about my daughter getting. Little did I know that the same vaccine would practically rob her of her legs; and we still don’t know if the disease has stabilized or what else it will bring.

The CDC and FDA need to continue to pay close attention to the numerous serious side effects this drug has caused. They need to investigate it further, and stop the use of Gardasil until further research has been performed and this drug deemed absolutely safe to administer. The research appears to be very limited in the age group 9-14 year olds. Merck should make the research of any drug readily available to all parents and have a completed questionnaire by the parents prior to administration of the HPV vaccine. There should be black box warnings for anyone with a strong history of allergies, environmental allergies, asthma, ezcema, multiple allergies, etc., even if the parent feels their child has outgrown the allergy and meds are not being used anymore.

Parents should be thoroughly informed of risks/benefits and also provide consent in writing prior to administration of the HPV vaccine. We live in the United States. The greatest country in the world. You don’t expect this from the U.S., you might expect it from a 3rd world nation but not the U.S.!

My daughter unfortunately still suffers from this illness and the doctors cannot tell me if she’s going to get better or worse. All we can do is hope and pray, and get the word out. My daughter is beautiful, green eyed pre-teen with long blonde hair who loves all people and living things. She’s fascinated with all animals and insects; lady bugs, cats, horses, and even ants. She can hear a bird chirping when no one else can. She loves art and can sketch perfectly anything she sees. She’s compassionate and always wants to give money or food to the homeless.

She’s asked many times, “Why did this happen to me?” Please make sure you don’t have to answer your child when she asks this difficult and heartbreaking question.

My child is currently being followed by a team of specialists. Hopefully if she’s up to it, she will be attending a summer camp for special needs kids this year. Thank you for your concern and you may contact me for further posts or questions. We’ve got to make people aware of what is going on.

UPDATE:

My child just got out of hospital after 5 days getting IV immunoglobulin(IVIg) and high dose IV steroids.  They are trying her on a diabetic drug that has had promising results in patients with motor neuropathies, along with continuation of the steriods for several months and every 30 days she’ll go back into infusion center for IVIg.

Unfortunately she is worsening: the illness is moving upwards, affecting her thighs and hip region now.  The doctors have told me that they don’t know what she has and can only try and treat the symptoms.  They speculate it’s a fast progressive form of ALS; again they’re not sure. ALS (Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is an extremely debilitating disease which causes overall body paralysis then death.

The girls that had the HPV shots and are affected with ALS have a fast progressive form of it. Merck should be ashamed. How can they sleep at night knowing they are harming and killing little girls and women?

Hi, my name is Nicole and I am 22 yrs old.  I was graduating from college in 2007 and would no longer be covered under my dad’s insurance at the end of the year.  My dad told me about the Gardasil vaccine and thought it would be a good idea for me to get it before I lost my insurance.

I had my first shot on August 13th of 2007.  I felt fine after receiving it and had no side effects…yet. The one thing I did notice is that it left a little mark on my arm, almost like an ink dot.

On September 8th, 3 weeks and 5 days later, I was driving to work and had just driven onto the expressway.  The last thing I remember is looking for traffic and getting over into the left hand lane.  I started coming to when I felt the paramedics grabbing me, but I couldn’t see anything.  I asked what had happened and they told me that I had been in an accident and not to move.  I was terrified and immediately started to cry in disbelief.

I was rushed to the ER.  When my family arrived, they told me that luckily I had not been in an actual car accident.  When my dad went to get my car, he said that it was half-way parked on the median, like I had intentionally parked it there knowing that something was wrong, but I do not remember anything.  I went to the doctors and they were just calling it a syncope since no one was with me to verify what had happened.

After that everything was fine, and for the most part back to normal, but I still couldn’t help but wonder what had happened to me that day.  I was scheduled for my next vaccine on October 15th, when the nurse came in I asked her about the dot on my arm and wondered if anyone else had ended up with one after receiving their shot. She told me no and that she had never seen that before, just chuckled and said “well hopefully it doesn’t happen this time”. But after I received the second one I noticed that I had another ink dot.  I didn’t understand why that would happen, but I just brushed it off.

On November 9th, 3 wks and 4 days later, I was in my room talking to my sister on the phone, the next thing I know I am hearing my Uncle Bill say my name, but again I couldn’t see anything. I finally got my vision back and saw my Uncle Bill and paramedics standing in my room staring at me. I had no clue what was going on, I asked what had happened and they told me that I had a seizure. I didn’t want to believe it! But I guess my niece heard some weird noises coming from my room so she walked into my room to see what it was, and saw me on my bed convulsing and making a weird noise, so she called 911.

I was taken to the ER again and cried even more. I just didn’t get what was going on, I had never had serious health problems, so why now?  I started thinking back to the incident in my car, and calculated the days. It just seemed a little strange that 3 weeks and some odd days after receiving these vaccines I had these 2 episodes.

After the second seizure, I had tons of tests done and everything came back normal, so I was really confused. Now I am on medication and have to see a neurologist, and I am uninsured, so my dad has been paying out of pocket to pay for my visits, but luckily I was able to get assistance for my medication and no longer have to pay for that, and believe me it is not cheap.

After all of this I had nothing else happen, so I was thinking that I was in the clear, but then on Easter of this year I had another seizure, but it only lasted a minute or so, which is very short compared to my other two.

This whole experience has been very hard on me and my whole family, and I still cry about this a lot. It just makes me feel like I will never be the same person that I was before all of this, the healthy woman with so much ahead of her. But it is sad to say that I am one of the luckier ones compared to some other stories I have read, especially those of younger girls.

Dear Gertrude Green and Renate Klein,

I was one of the many Australian girls who received the Gardasil vaccine through my high school (White’s Hill State College, Brisbane). I was 17 at the time and had not been informed properly about all the side effects that could have happened to me. I also did not know that in having the Gardisil shot that I was still not 100% protected from still getting cervical cancer and that I would still need to get Pap smear checks.

I had just got my shot and we had to sit for 10mins after we got our shot. I went and sat down and this girl in the year below me came and sat down beside me. After a little while a friend of the girl who was sitting by me ran up to one of the ladies who were giving us the injections and yelled, “there’s something wrong with my friend”. I looked over at the girl and she was so pale. Her eyes had rolled back into her head and the head was just rolling around on the chair. The lady who was giving injections immediately got up and pushed all the chairs aside and started first aid on the girl. After that we all got sent outside. I was terrified at what I saw and also that what ever just made that girl have a fit was in me.

When I went for my second injection the girl was there again lining up for it. This time we all had to sit outside to wait for the 10 minutes to pass. After I got it done I went outside, waiting for the time to pass. Some of my friends came out and said that they had let the girl get her injections again and that she had a fit again and had vomited.

Thanks for the information on this blog. I will let my friends know about it and try to spread the word.

Precious
