CDC 'Split Type':
Write-up: Adverse Reaction: The next day after receiving the vaccine, I woke up with terrible body aches and fatigue like a had the flu. Over the next week, on my right side, my scalp became hypersensitive, and numbness crept down my neck, shoulder and right arm. In the second and third weeks, my arm became weak and uncoordinated to the point where I could not hold things or do much with my right, dominant arm. I additionally felt weak, fatigued and had terrible restless legs. During the fourth week after the vaccine, I began to lose balance and could not stand without holding onto something. I also lost strength and coordination in my right leg. My gait was not normal, and I could only take small steps. I was so fatigued that I could hardly do anything for myself. My body was completely weak, and my right side was partially paralyzed. Treatment: After initially seeing a doctor, I was immediately sent to a neurologist, and I remain under care of a neurologist to this day. An MRI was performed on July 6, 2011 which revealed transverse myelitis. I was given a five-day 1000 mg treatment of IV steroids (methylprednisone). I elected to do this out-patient due to cost and family at home. I then did physical therapy over the next six months. Outcome: The steroid treatment did not improve symptoms but did stop further progression. With time and therapy, I have regained sensation that was lost. Strength has improved on my right side but remains weak, and my gait is not always normal. In 2016, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
