Write-up: Information has been received from a physician who obtained the information from a consumer who provided link to forum which was posted by a consumer. The consumer reported that her 14 year old daughter with type 2 diabetes mellitus, allergies to pollen, tree, smoke, grass, tobacco, fragrance and dust and dust mites, Blount''s disease and at the age of 12 was diagnosed as having Poly Cystic Ovary syndrome and was put on birth control pills to stop the excessive bleeding who in November 2007, was vaccinated with the first dose of GARDASIL. Concomitant vaccination included flu vaccine. On unspecified dates the patient vaccinated with the second and third dose of GARDASIL. Since having vaccination the patient failed all her classes and experienced no menstrual cycle (recovered on an unspecified date), her health has been in serious decline. Within hours of vaccination the patient was vomiting, feverish with a terrible headache. She could not get out of bed for almost 3 weeks. The patient recovered from vomiting, feverish with a terrible headache and could not get out bed in November 2007. The patient''s doctor referred to her illness and said she must have received a bad flu shot. At the time of this consumer''s report the patient 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 and she was diagnosed later with peripheral neuropathy in right foot on 09-APR-2008 and left foot on 22-MAY-2008. She could barely walk and was put in 2 com casts to keep her feet from hurting. At the time of this consumers report the patient is experiencing more than 4 migraines a month. She did have continual migraines for almost 3 weeks before they started to taper off. She faints and loses the ability to use her legs. This has happened many times then it''s followed by a 3 day migraine. The patient has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and has been put on a CPAP, diabetes 2, degenerative disc disease and loss of peripheral vision in her left eye and peripheral neuropathy in both feet. She is still not any better 2 years later. The patient''s symptoms after having the vaccinations also included temporary paralysis in arm, fainting once or twice weekly since third vaccination, with slurred speech and loss of feeling in her legs. Menstrual cycle changes, blurred vision, loss of peripheral vision in one eye and fatigue that is so bad she can hardly move. The patient had aching muscles and is in a lot of pain daily and has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in both feet. In addition, she has brain fog and from once being a bright person she has great difficulty in remembering things, in concentrating for any length of time and is not the young academic she once was before GARDASIL. On 25-AUG-2009 the patient had last ER visit. She had lower leg paralysis for more then 3 hours. This has been an unrelenting symptom since her last vaccine. The patient visited the ER many times. The patient''s mother stated that now her conditions have increased and she was left with very little quality of life. She was sick before now she was seriously sick following the vaccinations. The patient now was an "invalid", in great pain and lives in fear that she will become paralysed. Vomiting, feverish with a terrible headache, could not get out of bed for almost 3 weeks, peripheral neuropathy in right foot and left foot, faints, degenerative disc disease, loss of peripheral vision in her left eye, slurred speech, blurred vision, fatigue, great difficulty in remembering things, in concentrating for any length of time and very little quality of life were considered to be disabling. Upon internal review lower leg paralysis and temporary paralysis in arm were considered to be other important medical event. The reporter felt that the patient''s symptoms were related to GARDASIL. No further information is available.
