21,474 adverse events and 93 deaths reported so far after HPV vaccinations. Vaccine injuries do happen. The time has come to find out why. The time has come to give victims of adverse reactions after vaccination a voice.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Mar 08, 2011 – Before Gardasil, Kylie had been a cheerleader for eight years. She participated in tumbling, was in the marching band for three years, and sang in her school choir for five years. She went swimming almost every day in the summer. She played piano. In short, Kylie was involved in a little bit of everything. Now, she can barely hold down a part-time job. At a mere 19 years of age, after three years of suffering, Kylie has been approved for disability payments. She looks forward to the day she no longer needs them. Kylie just wants her life to get back to normal.
The following is Kylie’s story in her own words:
My name is Kylie and I am 19 years old. I had my first Gardasil shot at age 16 on 4/5/07 (LOT# 0171U) and have been very sick ever since. To start, this is the most painful shot I’ve ever experienced. I immediately felt nauseous and nearly blacked out while walking to the bathroom to vomit.
Following the first shot I experienced frequent abdominal/pelvic pain, nausea, and fatigue.
My second Gardasil shot was on 5/25/07, followed by my first emergency room visit for extreme abdominal/pelvic pain on 8/12/07.
On 10/12/07 I was given the final Gardasil shot. I saw a doctor on 11/7/07 for abdominal/pelvic pain and nausea/being unable to eat. The doctor prescribed me with Prevacid which had no effect on the pain that I was experiencing.
The pelvic/abdominal pain and nausea would come and go. It became an everyday pain beginning in 7/08 and has only progressed since then. At this time I weighed 115 lbs. I saw several different doctors at the clinic that I used and none could diagnose my condition.
Many of the doctors suggested that it was “all in my head.” I’ve had numerous trips to the emergency room for this stabbing pain in my pelvis area.
My condition gets worse as the days go by. Since 4/5/07, I have lost a total of 25 pounds. I have constant nausea. I still experience the constant pelvic/abdominal pain DAILY. The pain has traveled to my lower back and also up my spine. I have headaches/migraines multiple times a day. All of my muscles and joints ache, mainly in my hips and shoulders. My back feels like it always needs to pop but hasn’t for the past year or so. I have a strange pain in my neck and behind my left ear from a swollen lymph node that never goes away and affects my hearing. I am extremely tired all of the time and spend most of my days resting.
I have frequent chest pain and difficulty breathing. My vision keeps getting worse and worse, and I am VERY sensitive to light. If I stand up too fast then I automatically see stars and feel faint. Some days my allergies (that I have no history of) act up so badly that I can’t do anything. The lymph nodes throughout my body are all swollen from time to time.
Certain foods that I used to love make me very sick. I can’t tolerate anything with dairy, msg, or soy, and for some reason I can’t even handle lettuce.
Most of the testing done has all came back saying that there is no reason for the strange things that I experience… the pain that I NEVER had until Gardasil. I have had tons of blood work done, a dozen ultrasounds on my pelvic region, abdomen, spleen, gallbladder, appendix, heart, etc. My chest x-rays will show enlarged lymph nodes one day, and nothing the next. Most of my EKG testing is normal on one day, but on one occasion the result was that I had pericarditis (swelling of the sac around the heart), also confirmed by a chest x-ray and listening to the rub. A cardiologist did an ultrasound on my heart following the pericarditis and all of the sudden there was no sign of it being there… but the ultrasound THEN showed that I had a pleural effusion(fluid around my lung), which wasn’t there the previous week.
It’s strange how one day I am diagnosed with something abnormal and then all of the sudden it disappears. On one ultrasound I had multiple cysts on my ovaries. Within a short period of time, they had disappeared yet I was still experiencing the exact same pain as before. One of my back tests showed a concern for degenerating disc disease, while the next test was normal. At one point I went to an emergency after-hours clinic and was diagnosed with appendicitis and rushed to the emergency room. After arriving and having an ultrasound, my appendix appeared normal..?
I’ve done CAT scans, had an MRI, barium swallows, a laparoscopy, colonoscopy, and an endoscopy, all to show that “nothing is wrong.” I’ve traveled out of town to see an infectious disease doctor who took NINE vials of blood, all results coming back normal. My doctors think that I have developed anxiety and that I am stressed. Who wouldn’t be stressed out after this? I spend my days either sleeping, at the doctor’s office, or in the emergency room.
I was last hospitalized on 4/4/09 (Easter) for four days due to untreatable nausea causing constant vomiting (although I hadn’t eaten all day), the WORST migraine ever, a 103 fever, and extreme pelvic/abdominal pain. The doctor basically told me that there was nothing wrong and that I was making it up because my tests were fine. Now just how do you make up a 103 fever and vomiting for four days straight, I don’t know!
Recently I have been seeing new doctors at UAMS in Little Rock (the 3 hour drive stinks!). I’ve now had a capsule endoscopy and an endoscopy with biopsies of my stomach and small bowel. The test results showed that I have erosion in my intestines and that my stomach is swollen. I finally got another diagnosis just a couple weeks ago that I have severe fibromyalgia (widespread pain). I am EXTREMELY chemically sensitive, meaning that I can barely take any new medicines without it basically killing me. I also see a chiropractor daily to do electrical stimulation for nerve pain.
But in summary, I have lost 25 lbs, have severe food/chemical allergies, erosion in my intestines, swollen stomach, constant migraines, constant abdominal/pelvic pain, polycystic ovaries, back/joint pain, swollen lymph nodes, my hair falls out really bad, I’ve had pericarditis (swelling of sac around heart) and a pleural effusion (fluid around lungs), I experience muscle aches/twitches, sensitivity to light/smells, inability to stay focused, memory loss, fevers, metal taste in my mouth, EXTREME fatigue, dizziness, weakness, shortness of breath, painful periods that last for four months straight, nausea, and am unable to tolerate being too hot/cold.. I’m sure there’s more but I just can’t think right now.
Let me remind you that I had never been this sick a day in my life besides maybe the sniffles or a cold every few years, until I had these shots!
Do some research before you decide to get the shots, I sure wish that I had! Thousands of dollars in medical bills later.. I’m still just sitting around sick, unable to go back to college, unable to work full time, unable to go a day without excruciating pain! I spend more time at the doctor and counting pills than I do anything else! Who wants to hang out with you when you’re sick, anyway?
Stories like this are the reason the SaneVax Team is helping get the production of the “One More Girl” documentary off the ground. These girls need to have their stories told. There is not one person who suffered an adverse reaction after HPV vaccination that does not feel compelled to warn others. Without exception, they want no other person to ever have to experience the same things they have.
Please, take a few minutes to watch the preview of “One More Girl.” Make your contribution to the production of this ground-breaking film. Help prevent others from becoming one more injured after HPV vaccination.
