Write-up: An attorney alleges that a female received Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Absorbed, Purogenated and influenza virus vaccines on 13 DEC 2000. Immediately following immunization, the patient experienced excruciating ("beyond description") pain, severe burning and a throbbing/pulsating sensation, that was so "bad", she was unable to sleep the entire night. The pain in her arm radiated into her neck and shoulder. She notified her physician who indicated that "it" was normal and would subside. The patient continued experiencing right arm and hand pain with 2 fingers on her right hand "drawing". As time moved forward, she experienced weakness and twitching in both her arms. Between May and June 2002, the patient''s condition began to deteriorate; she was unable to use either arm for anything. She also experienced difficulty breathing. In August 2001, she was hospitalized for respiratory failure and placed into intensive care unit. She was released in September 2001 and had lost the use of both her arms. Her neck muscles had deteriorated to the point that she need assistance to maintain head elevation. Her weakness and deterioration affected her lungs and throat. The patient could barely breathe and had difficulty swallowing. According to the attorney, her problems were so severe, she was intubated and a feeding tube was inserted. As of the date of this report, the patient required 24 hour care due to her "injuries". As of the date of this report, no further information was available.
