  • You dont believe a doctor at Johns Hopkins? Just use the handy dandy Google toolbar (flu vaccine reaction dystonia) and many many more reports of it come up including a dystonia foundation.

    It's an admitted side effect (rare makers say) so why is that hard to believe?

  • Poor girl! She has her whole life ahead of her! It is a real condition and it is rare to get it from a vaccine. Most people who have it are born with it and have the symptoms from birth on.

  • "wonder what else she had in her system that brought on the condition. Meth... Cocaine.... "

    Really? ... If it is a reported side effect, then obviously she needn't have had ANY extras.
    Things like this are why vaccinations continue to be an intense topic for discussion ...

  • Maybe you need to read my recent post of a doctor's report on the H1N1 and the ramifications of that vaccine... You don't know what they put in these things and I can believe just about anything right now after some of the stuff I've read (and am learning as I go through pharmacology school). Scary stuff, people!

  • My hubby's aunt has that. It is awful. She tries to walk forwards and walks backwards or falls down. She also has essential tremors. It is a difficult thing to deal with for her.

  • OP HERE: i agree w/ the posters saying something else was in her system. Hell i know people who've had the shot for years and they're fine ... wonder what she did different?

    lol @ time to turn in the pom poms! Guess she figured she could get more w/ SSI or suing someone than cheerleading for a horrible team!!
