Write-up: A month or so after receiving the final shot in the GARDASIL series, I noticed a problem with my fingers. They would become cold and swell, then turn white or blue, upon exposure to any temperature below 30 degrees, once they reached normal body temperature, they would swell further to the point of extreme discomfort and begin to feel as though they were being burned. I noticed these symptoms for two years, with no relief and many puzzled doctors. In August I began noticing knee swelling, severe joint pain, difficulty walking, and severe fatigue. Fluid was removed from my joints to temporarily relieve the pain, I was prescribed with Prednisone to reduce any inflammation, and it helped for two to three weeks, then the symptoms returned. After an Emergency Room Visit, they discovered white blood cells in the fluid in my joints. After a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon, and then a Rheumatologist, I was then diagnosed in November 2011 with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, after a complete blood panel and a positive ANA test.
