FDA Recalls: America’s (Legal) Drug Medication Problem

(For any person that received the Gardasil vaccinations and did not have any side effects or symptoms, please have a pap test done immediately. We are getting reports of these girls that had no side effects to the vaccine that are now getting cervical lesions and cervical cancer. So if you know of anyone that received Gardasil with no side effects, please tell them to get a pap test done immediately.)

When my 16 year old daughter suddenly started having symptoms such as numbness and tingling in both legs and left arm, overall weakness, stomach aches, pressure headaches, neck and back pain, brain fog, dizziness, increased heart rate, breathing problems, vision problems, I did not immediately associate it with Gardasil.

But after receiving an email on Gardasil and the side effects that so many of our young girls are suddenly coming down with, I put two and two together.

Of course, the doctor that literally forced this vaccine on us completely denied any association with Gardasil and her side effects. Test after test was done with all results coming back normal.

She continued to have these symptoms. After taking her to several doctors and having her rushed to the hospital by ambulance because of breathing problems, I started researching into this even further.

I have found SO many other mothers going through this same thing! Their daughters also have alot of the same symptoms that my daughter is having. There are alot of these girls that are having seizures, paralysis, fainting and even death.

I am a member of a yahoo group that has other mothers searching for answers. We are trying to get the word out to everyone we can about the dangers of Gardasil and the side effects that the doctors do not disclose to their patients about this dangerous vaccine.

If you know of anyone that has started having any of these symptoms, and they recently received any of the 3 shots for Gardasil, please email me or post to this blog. We will help you find the answers.

    My 13 year old daughter was injured by Gardasil and completely disabled for the past year. Merck got it right when they used the slogan "One Less" for Gardasil. Because of Gardasil, my daughter was "One Less". She was "One Less Student", "One Less Active Child", "One Less in every aspect of her life". Take it from a mother who has spent the past year sitting by my child's bedside wondering if she would die in her sleep. INVESTIGATE BEFORE YOU VACCINATE. DO NOT trust your doctor to make this decision. If you want to understand Merck's role in the medical community, investigate some of their former wonderdrugs such as VIOXX and then marvel at how many people died from it before it was pulled off the market. The CDC AND FDA need to do their job and get this off the market before more children are harmed. The public is not aware of VAERS and the #'s are grossly understated. I have had to tell my child's doctors about VAERS and make them file reports or she would not be one of the current statistics in VAERS. Even then, her information has not been entered correctly so I know that VAERS is not what it should be. Please do not let this happen to your child. There is NO WAY that I will get my son this vaccine.

    My daughter, age 14 at the time, was given the Gardasil vaccine on June 9, 2009. I specifically asked the doctor if it had any side effects because my daughter is prone to adverse reactions...she ASSURED me that the ONLY possible reaction was rash or redness at the injection site. "This vaccine is VERY safe."

    were her exact words. Within 30 minutes of the shot, Ashlee began feeling ill. She began running fever by that night with severe muscle aches, headache, vomiting, diahrrea, numbness in her shoulder and dizziness. I phoned the doctor the next day and asked again if the vaccine could be what was making her sick, again she said that it was not possible and that she probably picked up a bug in the office. Since that dreadful day, my daughter has had a lot of the symptoms subside. But she was later diagnosed with PID, (pelvic inflammatory disease) which is normally caused from a sexually transmitted disease, and she was tested negative for those 3 times. She also suffers from brain fog, gastrointestional disorders and she vomits after almost every meal! When she goes an entire day of not vomiting, we celabrate!! She has had several ER visits, been hosptialized, undergone every test, blood work and procedure known to the medical field, and like all the other Gardasil victim's, all show that everything is 'normal'! Vomiting after every meal is not normal folks. I praise God every day that there was information on the WEB about Gardasil because I stopped the other two injections.(making her doctor very mad!) I just wish that I would have not believed the doctor and told her that I would check into it before I agreed to the first shot of hidden poisons. Her vibrant life of cheer leading, soccer, running or just hanging with friends has changed. As a mother, that is suppose to protect my daughter, it literally tears my heart out of my chest when she asks me when she will get better...and I don't have the answer! I have met other victims with the same symptoms...they are in their second year. I won't even tell her that. We now live day to day with hands that pray. PLEASE, investigate before you vaccinate!!! It's not worth the risk, it's not worth the risk, listen, IT IS NOT WORTH THE RISK!!!!!!!!

    My daughter received the gardasil shot in 2007. She was going in for her boosters and I counted one more needle than I had papers explaining the vaccine. I asked what the extra needle was and the nurse told me it was gardasil. I explained that I didn't have that paper. She said "I iwll get it for you and then injected my daughter as I said "I DONT WANT HER TO HAVE THAT!"

    Not long after (a few weeks) I noticed her neck twitching sharply to one side randomly. She also complained of numbness in her fingers and toes and complained of joint and muscle pains. I researched it online a bit and read a website that said teens may develop a tic in this time in their life but it shouldn't last long. I dont even remember that website. I took her to the doctors a few weeks later and all kinds of tests were eventually ran. Everything came back normal.

    I then took it upon myself to do my own medical research. I found that her twitches started a few weeks after she was injected with the gardasil vaccine. Researching the effects of gardasil and more into this drug I am undoubtedly convinced that this was the culprit. She received the "U lot" (the lot number with letter ender). That lot specifically has problems as stated in a credible website I read.

    I thank God that she only received one shot and that her symptoms are not as harsh as the ones I've read. I just hope that the symptoms she does have do not worsen. It's time to get this drug off the market and stop letting these pharmaceutical companies using our children as guinea pigs for their research. They need to take a little more time to develop them and make sure they are safe. Or they should use them on their own daughters first if they are so convinced they are safe.

    My daughter was 14 when she was vaccinated. She developed peripheral neuropathy in both feet almost immediately, she has had bloody stools, bloody noses, migraine headaches almost daily with fainting and loss of the use of her legs. She has low body temperture and low blood pressure. She has also lost peripherl vision in her left eye. She has had no period since her first vaccine in November of 2007. Not one doctor will admit that Gardasil did this. She was given the gardasil vaccine at the same time as the flu shot. Our lives are total hell now. She now sleeps on a CPAP for sleep apnea. She had a sleep study one month before gardahell that was perfect. Shortly after the vaccine she had another sleep study which showed she had to have a CPAP. She stops breathing at night. nice huh. I could go on for days and days the symptoms are horrible and non-relenting. She has had every symptom stated in Teresa post..Except for pancreatis...but was her pancreas ever I don't think so. Whatever you do if you stumble upon this website do not do this to your children. I forgot to mention the only way I linked her illness to the gardasil was when her arm became paralysed for 7 hours after her third shot. If it hadn't been for that I would have never known. Our lives have been totally disrupted by this Weapon of Mass destruction unleashed upon the most innocent. Our sweet young innocent girls. We have nowhere to turn none of the doctors can help....but do they know what they have done....

    Gardasil and Cervarix are two very dangerous vaccines, causing deaths and severe health problems for those who are vaccinated. All young women who are part of these programmes are being used as guinea pigs as neither pharmaceutical company can give guarantees of life long protection, the best is six years with the wording "we hope to be able to extend,but cannot say that at the moment". Parents were never informed that their daughters would be part of ongoing trials, were never informed that there could be serious side effects. Dr Diane Harper warned us here in Scotland last November 2008 that we should wait another four years before starting out on this programme of vaccination - because she couldnt guarantee that Cervarix was safe, still work to be done on the side effects which she was aware of and especially those being experienced by young girls and women in America. How many deaths will it take or how many young women have to be handicapped before someone will listen?

    The next generation of our young women across the world have never been in such danger as they are now. The pharmaceutical companies know so little about these vaccines that they cannot tell what long term effects will be experienced in years to come. Evidence is starting to appear in America of young women who have been vaccinated are discovering that they are infected with the HPV virus, this is being identified after screening some two years after having been vaccinated.

    This is the legacy which the pharmaceutical companies are leaving to the next generation.

    “ONE LESS” has been mentioned by one of the writers. Our family is also “ONE LESS”. Jessie had all three shots of Gardasil. After the second shot she and her mother notices the headaches, Muscle aches, and fatigue. Jessie was taken to the doctor that gave her the Gardasil. The doctor said it was just stress. Jessie was a cheerleader; a member of the National Honor Society, Played many sports and was practicing for softball, which was about to start.

    Jessie went with her mother on February 20, 2008 for the third shot of Gardasil. The next night she told her mother that the headache was back and went to bed. Her mother went to work early the next day and upon returning home from work found Jessie dead. She had been dead for several hours. The medical examiner said, “She was dead before she hit the floor”. Still he could find no cause for her death.

    Gardasil was typed into the computer and the nightmares that came up were shocking. We have been in contact with several families that have also lost their daughters to the vaccine that was to protect them. If we had only known that there were other side effects other than the few that were listed by Merck. Jessie would NEVER have received this wonder vaccine that is killing and maiming our girls.

    Since Jessie’s death we have been researching and cannot believe that the FDA and the CDC have not pulled this product off the market. There are so many unanswered questions. They are calling all of the deaths (48 plus) just in the U.S. that we know of, sheer coincidences. There have been 15,000 adverse reactions also reported just in the U.S. Statistics show that only 1%-10% is ever reported to VAERS, which is a very small percentage. Many families do not know to report the reactions or how to report them. It is not mandatory for doctors to report the adverse reactions so many doctors do not report them.

    Gardasil trials by Merck brought many new medical conditions to many of the girls and women that were being used for the studies.

    HPV is a virus that the body can fight off over a period of time. The virus COULD cause cervical cancer, NOT WOULD cause cancer. In the U.S. cervical cancer is on the decline with the Pap test and other forms of detection. We do not have an epidemic of cervical cancer so why is Merck pushing to have every girl vaccinated. YOU GUESSED IT!!!! The answer is MONEY. Merck lost a lot of money with the drug VIOX. This drug was also killing people and had to be removed from the market. This is why my family and many others are fighting so hard to remove gardasil from the market. We do not want other families to suffer the loss of a child or have a daughter that is unable to function a normal life because of something that was suppose to keep her safe.

    Please do not have your daughter vaccinated without researching Gardasil

    A grandmother who knows.

    Thank you for sharing your stories.

    It just makes me SICK to hear all these stories of sick girls and yet, these vaccines are still on the market.

    It's all about the $$$ and Big Pharms.

    Why is it that an over-the-counter medication can have just a small handful of side effects reported and it's quickly removed from the market, yet we have THOUSANDS of young girls that are having the same/similar symptoms after receiving these HPV vaccines and NOTHING is being done???

    My daughter had Gardasil. She developed pneumonia, migraines, hair loss, menopausal symptoms and was sent to the hospital twice for dehydration. This vaccine has polysorbate in it - a known carcinogen and an ingredient known to cause sterility in animals. It is also used in contraceptives. Thank goodness I found a yahoo group with supportive families. My daughter is now doing better - thanks to multiple vitamins. She's on a B complex, C, D3 and niacin (ONLY TO BE TAKEN AFTER BEING IN A VERY SPECIFIC DIET FOR SEVERAL MONTHS). She has what I believe is pk deficiency (pyruvate kinase deficiency). It is more common than earlier thought and I believe most Americans have this genetic "trait." Do your research. Any hereditary ailment in your family is most likely pk deficiency. It is not discussed because 1) many doctors have never been trained to look for it and 2) it is the bread and butter of the pharmaceutical and medical community. Please DO NOT vaccinate. If you do decide to get vaccines, do your homework first - look into EACH ingredient to make certain it is safe. I wish I had.

    My 17 year old has been suffering from the side effects of Gardasil since Feb 09. She complained of muscle&joint pain after the 1st shot, and even more after the 2nd one.We did NOT know it was a side effect. The 3rd shot pushed her little body over the edge. She started having non epileptic seizures, severe muscle spasms in her back, she is totally fatigued all the time STILL. Her DR says she has a neurological disorder. Sometimes it goes into her eyes, causing them to quiver and roll back into her head. This week, she lost her vision, could only see images. It is a very scary thing for everyone involved. Will it ever end? It seems like once one thing slows down, something new comes up. She is a SR and cheerleader at school, she is fighting very hard to continue to be an honor student, but it is taking a toll on her. She sleeps a LOT. Her social life is pretty much nothing. Gardasil has done a lot of damage to these girls, and it is not fair. We made a choice to protect them from HPV, not damage them and stop their lives. It sucks to watch your daughter struggle every single day. It's difficult to put a smile on and look her in the eyes and tell her, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS. When I lay in bed, I wonder if we will. My daughter was a healthy active teenager prior to the Gardasil shots. I hope SOON that someone steps up and listens to the damage that has been done.

    I don`t understand why didn`t they stop using that drug if it has so many side effects. Go to a TV station with as many people you can get and let people know the truth.
