Write-up: This information has been received from a physician who received the information from a consumer that provided him a link to a forum concerning a female patient with fibromyalgia who was vaccinated with GARDASIL first dose in June of 2007 and her second dose in August of 2007. The adverse reactions began slowly, a fainting spell within 24 hours for no reason, then a few days later - the patient''s suddenly couldn''t move or speak though her eyes remained open and she could hear. A floating sensation (also reported as "nausea") came over her, and then slowly she began to lose consciousness. This lasted about five to eight minutes. The person she was with thought she had died. After she came to, she thought the whole episode was somehow related to her fibromyalgia in a new way. Nothing like it had ever happened before to her. One week later, the patient suddenly experienced, hammering pain ran up and down her thighs and calves. This lasted about 15 minutes, and it ended as abruptly as it came on. The leg pain would come and go the rest of the summer, but in a much less intense manner (also reported as "constant pain"). In approximately the SEP- 2008 the patient experienced light hurts her eyes. At the time of reporting, the patient had not recovered from constant pain, seizures, nausea, weakness and dizziness and needed wheelchair or crutches and a walker to get around. The patient had recovered from fainting, could not move or speak, loss of consciousness, and strong pain down and up in thighs and shins. The outcome of light hurts eyes was unknown. The reporter felt that all adverse events were related to the therapy with GARDASIL. Constant pain, seizures, nausea, weakness and dizziness was considered to be disabling. Upon internal review "couldn''t move or speak" was considered to be other important medical events. This is one of two reports from the same source. No further information is available.
