Woman Says Flu Shot Triggered Rare Disorder ( ... &catid=158

ASHBURN, Va. (WUSA) -- Many of you have been lining up to get the seasonal flu shot. But there is one Ashburn woman who wants you to hear her story before you do.

Desiree Jennings is trapped in her body. Intellectually she's all there, but her muscles are fighting each other. She's been diagnosed with dystonia, an extremely rare and debilitating neurological disease.

She says after taking the seasonal flu shot she witnessed her body's rapid decline. She doesn't know what else it could be but she has serious questions about the seasonal flu shot. The Centers for Disease Control cannot comment on her case.

Desiree was a healthy 25-year-old up until two months ago, working at AOL and as a Redskins cheerleading ambassador.

But her world has now been turned upside down.

Desiree has trouble talking and speaks in a staccato rhythm.

She says, "It's a battle every day because when I wake up I think it's going to be normal, but then I'm quickly reminded that's not going to be the case."

She says 10 days after getting a seasonal flu shot at a Reston grocery store in August, and on her second wedding anniversary, she got sick. First, she came down with flu like symptoms, then convulsions and blacking out.

She's seen more than 60 doctors. She says all of them were stumped until Johns Hopkins diagnosed her with dystonia. She believes her seasonal flu shot triggered it.

Desiree says, "Nothing else explains such a fast moving neurological damage. The medical hospitals ruled out everything, CAT scans normal, blood normal, MRI normal. The only thing that explains it is the shot caused the neurologic damage."

She says it is a strange disorder where muscles work against each other. She can't walk forward, only backwards. She can run, but she can't stop without help. She can whisper but has difficulty speaking. Noises can cause convulsions. Her resting heart rate is 90. When she runs her blood pressure dips to 58. She gets exhausted walking a few steps but she could run for hours.

Drugs such as valium and klonopin that make other people sleepy give her energy for hours.

Simple exercises become nearly impossible.

Desiree's husband, Brendan, says, "It gets worse everyday. It's heartbreaking to see."

Desiree says the disease is irreversible. Once she loses an ability it doesn't come back. She says there are only three ways you can get dystonia as an adult and they include head trauma, drug use, and poisoning. She says she has not experienced any of that.

There is no cure. One in a million are diagnosed with the disease. She says she just wants healthy people to talk to their doctors and weigh the risk.

While the Centers for Disease Control cannot comment directly on this case, they say they have no knowledge of a link between the seasonal flu shot and dystonia.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A few weeks ago, Desiree Jennings was training for a half marathon. Now, she's struggling to walk, talk and even eat.

According to the Loudoun Times-Mirror , Jennings, who has been working with the Washington Redskins as an ambassador in hopes of becoming a cheerleader since April, developed severe and possibly life-threatening side effects from getting a seasonal flu vaccine seven weeks ago at a Safeway in Reston.

Twenty-five-year-old Jennings says she was healthy and active and was not in a high-risk group at the time of her shot.

She says she received the vaccine to earn points for her work health plan that gives perks for each level of wellness that is attained. It was not until ten days after she received the shot that she began to experience flu-like symptoms.

Her physical therapist at Johns Hopkins Hospital say she is suffering from dystonia, a neurological movement disorder where sustained muscle contractions cause body jerks, and abnormal or repetitive movements.

People who suffer from dystonia often are required to re-learn even the most basic routines.

It is a rare disease and is not completely understood.

You realize your life is never going to come back the way it was, Desiree told the Times-Mirror. My goal in life was to one day be a CEO. Now, I dont know if I can ever return back to work.

Woman Blames Paralyzing Neurological Disease On Flu Shot (Prison Planet)


A Virginia woman is adamant that a flu shot has caused her to contract a debilitating and irreversible neurological disease, while the CDC refuses to comment on her case.

25-year-old Desiree Jennings was a fit and healthy cheerleader up until two months ago when she got a seasonal flu shot.

Ten days after the shot she began experiencing flu like symptoms, followed by severe convulsions and black outs.

Now she can barely talk or walk and her life has all but been destroyed.

After seeing around 60 doctors, Jennings was eventually diagnosed with dystonia, a paralyzing neurological disorder that causes the muscles to relentlessly contract and spasm.

Bizarrely, increased physical activity causes her heart rate to decline, meaning she can run for hours, however, her resting heart rate is 90 and walking a few steps is exhausting and almost impossible.

There is no cure for the disease and it gets worse over time.

The causes of the disease are not yet fully understood, however, it is thought that physical trauma, infection, heavy metals poisoning or adverse reaction to drugs are possible triggers.

Jennings is certain that the flu shot caused the disease and has pledged to do all she can to warn others.

“Nothing else explains such a fast moving neurological damage. The medical hospitals ruled out everything, CAT scans normal, blood normal, MRI normal. The only thing that explains it is the shot caused the neurological damage.” she told WUSA News.

Watch a WUSA news report on the story:

The Centers for Disease Control has said it cannot comment on the case but added that it has no evidence to suggest flu vaccines can be connected to dystonia.

However, neuropathy and paralysis resulting from disorder of the cranial nerves are routinely listed as possible side effects resulting from flu shots.

In rare cases flu shots are known to cause the debilitating nerve disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which killed more people than the actual flu virus the last time a pandemic was declared in 1976.

In addition, studies have shown a direct relationship between the mercury based preservative thimerosal in flu shots and neurological disorders.

Cases of the neural development disorder autism amongst children have doubled since 2003, in line with an increase in the amount of thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines.

Further studies have shown a decline in neurodevelopmental disorders after the removal of thimerosal-containing vaccines.

Of course, there will be few repercussions should more people develop diseases from the new mercury and squalene containing H1N1 shots, given that the government has provided pharmaceutical companies blanket immunity from lawsuits. You know, just in case.

Shady, hope you don't mind my adding this story here, but it shows more dangers from the seasonal flu shot.

Korea: Five die after seasonal flu vaccination
Thanks to the reader who sent the link to this report from Joong Ang Daily: Five die after seasonal flu vaccination. Excerpt:

Five people have died after being vaccinated against seasonal influenza since the nation’s health authority began providing free shots on the first day of this month.

Yesterday, an 80-year-old woman died slightly more than one hour after receiving the seasonal flu shot in Ulsan, according to the public health center in the northern part of the port city. On her way from the center in the morning, she experienced a breathing problem and fell to the ground, her daughter-in-law

She was immediately moved to a nearby emergency room but died 75 minutes later. She was diabetic, according to the health center. The center is currently investigating whether the shot played a role in her death. Having secured 3.93 million doses of seasonal flu vaccine, the centers are providing free vaccines to people 65 years and older and to the needy residing in government-provided welfare facilities.

A fourth death of a flu shot recipient involved a 51-year-old man from Gyeonggi. Since he was not eligible for the free vaccination due to age, he paid for the shot. He died Oct. 9, two days after the vaccination.

The Health Ministry said an autopsy showed he died of hardening of the arteries, not from side effects from the vaccination. However, he had not been treated for heart disease before the shot.

The first three deaths occurred three days in a row beginning Oct. 5 - all involving people over 80 years old. Without elaborating further, the Health Ministry said is looking into the “possible link between the deaths and the vaccine.”

This is not the first time that deaths have followed flu vaccinations. The largest tally came in 2005 at six, followed by three last year. Of the 3.93 million government-offered free vaccines doses, 3.44 million are from the Green Cross, a local pharmaceutical manufacturer. ... daily.html

Government studies show jump in autism rate :flame

One in 91 children in the U.S. have an autism spectrum disorder, according to a study released today in the journal Pediatrics. That smashes the previous estimate of one in 150.

The study was conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and…

involved a telephone survey of more than 78,000 parents. The new findings prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to reveal that preliminary data from its more in-depth study due out later this year, also indicate about 1 percent of children are affected with autism spectrum disorder.

Government officials have urged caution in interpreting the increase, which could be due to increased awareness, broader definitions of the disorder and how it is diagnosed; but they also recognized that the disorder is “of urgent public health concern, and these data affirm that a concerted and substantial national response is warranted.”

Autism advocacy groups responded by calling for more funding towards research, services and support.

What do you think is behind the increase? ... tism-rate/

Anne Schuchat, MD (RADM, USPHS) Director, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases just concluded an interview with 60 minutes (shown this weekend) where she states that the CDC has had not one single report of a person suffering any adverse reaction to the Swine Flu vaccine. I guess they don't count this person since she had the normal flu shot. Oh, technicality! Must push the Swine Flu vaccines though, it was already PAID for before the North American trials even started.
