Write-up: Date of last GARDASIL vaccine was noted to be 5/12/2016, however, daughter was given two prior to this on 5/12/2015 and 7/16/2015. Several months after the second vaccine, daughter began having daily headaches with migraines at times. She lived with these by taking Motrin or Tylenol that did not alleviate the headaches. In November of 2016 her headaches were progressing in severity and she started experiencing fatigue and body aches. Her mood and motivation also declined. An MRI was ordered with normal results. APN started amitriptyline 10 mgs, which was increased to 20 then 30 and finally 40 mgs with no relief. All these mentioned symptoms continued and in January of this year she began passing out upon standing up and walking. The first incident resulted in an ER visit which test showed mild dehydration and low platelet levels. We followed up with the pediatrician that following week and physician ordered more tests indicating low platelets. After a couple of more appointments and blood tests, with no symptom relief, pediatrician had daughter admitted to hospital. During this hospital stay, results indicated Flu B and low platelets. An MRI-V was ordered with normal results. Oncologist wanted us to follow up with her to monitor blood counts to see if recovery of flu would result in normal platelet and white blood cell count. After hospital discharged daughter, we followed up with cardiologist, neurologist, gynecologist and oncologist. Neurologist diagnosed daughter with POTS and increased amitriptyline to 50 mgs, after EEG was normal. Still no relief of headaches. Cardiologist ran EKG and had daughter wear halter monitor of heart. Gynecologist's tests indicated low estrogen which no cyst on ovaries and is now ordering an MRI to look at pituitary gland. Daughter had bone marrow biopsy on June 6, 2017 and has now been diagnosed with ITP. She continues to suffer daily with headaches, irritability, hypersensitivity, body aches, fatigue and low platelets.
