Family: H1N1 Flu Shot Caused Severe Reaction
kpho.com ^ | 31 Dec 09 | Staff

A nurse herself for many years, the 47-year-old Milliken has spent the last 38 days in medical care. Her boyfriend and family said she may have been struck down by what's called Guillain-Barre Syndrome -- which starts with pain and ends with paralysis.

Milliken's family said they believe the H1N1 flu shot she received in the first week of November may be to blame for her suffering.

"Right now, she's in a lot of pain, mostly in her extremities. A lot of nerve sensations such as burning in her legs is what she's feeling," said Milliken's daughter Michelle Mellett.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tracks adverse reactions to vaccines. It reported that as of last week, more than 92 million H1N1 flu vaccines had been shipped with 6,945 adverse reactions reported, said Filmer.

However, the CDC reported that just 410 of those are considered "serious" and of those just 32 are reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

H1N1, right up there with AGW, and Y2K as the biggest scientific/technological scams of the past 10 years.

Talk about a man made disaster - whomever started the H1N1 scare tactic should be imprisoned. Neither I, nor my daughter will ever have that vaccine.

Of the 92 million shipped, how many have been used, I wonder. How many are still sitting on shelves with the potential to harm? Not enough statistical data in the article.

I had a sister-in-law who had G-B many years ago. A very scary disease. She made a full recovery, but it took many months.

For grins and giggles you should read The Great Infuenza before you make stupid comments.
Sorry for being blunt.

For grins and giggles you should learn about the influence of war conditions to spread disease under virtually primitive medical conditions, as well as the illigitimacy of drawing incongruent etiological comparisons across generalized infectious strains, and... oh yeah, how about just checking the news reports every few months, too? Sorry for being blunt.

This is a risk with any vaccination, not just flu and not just H1N1. Stomach flu also a known trigger.

Treatment is known (there are two treatments) and if detected early enough 100% recovery is possible.

A relative had it as a result of surgery. But she swore she'd dance at her daughter's wedding, 6 months later, and she did.

We have a family member who has been fighting H1N1 since October. It is a tough fight. She was placed into an induced coma for a month. Since then she has declined little by little. The prognosis is not good.

Well that’s a lot higher percentage than for swine flu on the whole US population.

The H1N1 comes with its own risks. I had it for 4 days and nearly died. Ended up with pneumonia, which I still have. I am not saying the vaccine is good, by ANY means, but H1N1 is NO HYPE.

H1N1 can mess you up badly.

How is your family member doing? We have a friend in Poland just now recovering after being on life support and in the hospital before Christmas and just now going home as a result of the A/H1N1. He’s a young man in his 30’s otherwise healthy before this.

I have been out of town and unable to respond. She is doing a bit better. There is a blog of her status

She is still in the hospital and has a long road to recovery
