Last June I had gotten my last shot and was as sick as a dog. I had horrible migraines, excruciating lower stomach pains, crazy irregular menstrual cycles, was losing hair, was always tired, had constant arthritis like pains all over my body, and had occasional episodes of rapid heartbeat and trouble breathing. I was convinced I was dying of some type of cancer or something, but after going to the doctors numerous times and getting tested for everything under the sun I was told I was perfectly healthy. Of course, I knew that I was NOT perfectly healthy and continued to feel worse. I became extremely depressed and was just miserable all the time. One night in August my mom and I had been watching the news and saw a story on gardasil and how it possibly caused dangerous side effects. As soon as I saw that I hopped online and sure enough I found website after website filled with complaints of girls like me who have gotten extremely sick from this shot.
Thank god for my neighbor who is a holistic doctor. She was wonderful and I owe my recovery to her. After my mom and I realized that all of my health problems were most likely caused by the gardasil shot, we marched straight to the doctors who pretty much laughed off our theory and sent us packing. With no one else to turn to my mom had gotten talking to our neighbor who is a holistic doctor. She explained that alot of shots are made up of ingredients that taken in high amounts are extremely toxic and damaging to the body and put me on a heavy metal detox cleanse. At this point I was desperate and willing to try anything. The cleanse consisted of:
- cutting out all dairy, sugar, gluten, and soy from my diet
- alot of vitamin c, b complex, zinc, fiber, and magnesium vitamins.
- a good chlorella supplement (google for more info)
- drinking lots of water and getting as much rest as possible
After 3 months of sticking to this regimen, by December I was almost completely recovered. All of my symptoms had either gone away completely or diminished considerably. Now, its been about a month since I've been off the diet and supplements and I finally feel like my old self. I'm a senior in high school this year and am so relieved that I can now actually enjoy myself and look forward to my future. This detox cleanse may seem pretty intense, but for anyone who has developed side effects as bad as mine or worse this is definitely the way to go! I gaurantee that by sticking to this diet for several months you will notice a huge improvement in your overall health and hopefully eventually be back to your normal self like me!
Also, I definitely reccomend finding a holistic doctor that will help you with your diet along the way. This way you can ensure that your going about this process correctly and ridding as much toxins from your body as possible. Unfortunately as most of us on here have learned, normal doctors seem to have no clue what this shot is doing to us teens so for in this case, holistic doctors and detox regimens seem to be the way to go!
I wish everyone luck and pray that this has helped many people out there battling serious health problems due to the gardasil shot. Stay strong guys, and heres to a much happier and healthier new year!

So it is now Christmas morning at 4:40 am and I am up (as I have been for two hours). Not because my little brother came into my room and woke me up at a ridiculous time so he could open presents, which he hasn't yet, but because the stupid shot has made me feel like I'm dying. I wish I would have never gotten it. This stupid shot has me on the internet searching for people that are experiencing this same thing. I have also considered a tapeworm because that is just how bad I feel... If you are wondering if you should get it or not i would definitely say no. It isn't worth it in the long run and my sister says it could cause depression and I am starting to feel that. Stupid, stupid shot. Not worth it.-- By stephaniesevin | Reply | (2) replies | Private Message me

My 16 yr old daughter was also injured by Gardasil. She had 2 of the 3 injections (Jan 9th and March 9th, 2009). Before Gardasil, she was a happy, healthy and vibrant teenager. Since Gardasil she is sick every day of her life. She has dizziness, overall weakness, numbness and tingling in both legs and left arm, back pain, neck pain, pressure headaches, vision problems, breathing problems, chest pains, racing heartbeats, brain fog, stomach problems, nausea, diarrhea, weight loss, hair loss, jerking all over spells...the list goes on and on.
She was an A/B student but failed her 10th grade year because she was too sick to retain what she was trying to learn (brain fog). She no longer has the energy to go off with her friends. Most days she lays in bed, in pain.
This just doesn't happen to a healthy teenager!! And it just doesn't happen to THOUSANDS of other girls with no connection except they all had the Gardasil vaccine.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.
Please educate yourself as much as you can before you allow anyone to push this unproven and unsafe vaccine on your daughter! The guilt is overwhelming from a mothers' standpoint! I thought I was doing something to protect my daughter. Instead, I allowed the doctor to inject poison into my child and take away her life!
These 'side effects' are NOT rare! They are happening every day to literally hundreds of thousands of young girls after receiving Gardasil. The numbers in VAERS is estimated to only be between 1-10% of the true numbers! Try asking some of us moms who have to deal with these horrible side effects every day if we consider it to be RARE!
Everyone should look at the other side of the fence and research this. There are thousands of girls that are coming down with strange illnesses, paralysis, gran mal seizures, etc. after receiving Gardasil.
We are now getting reports of girls as young as age 9 that are breaking out with genital warts and severe cases of cervical cancer AFTER receiving Gardasil. Some of these girls/women did not initially have any side effects from the vaccine.
There are perfectly healthy girls all of a sudden come down with all of these strange sicknesses (some that I cant even pronounce) after getting jabbed with Gardasil. All within hours/days/weeks?
Just like Merck's 'wonderful' Vioxx...what will it take? How many dead/injured before someone takes notice?
The doctor that literally pushed this vaccine on us at a routine doctor visit told us that there were no side effects except for soreness or redness at injection site.
She also told us that it would protect her from a whole LIST of things! I had seen the commercials but had not researched it.
As a matter of fact, I never really THOUGHT about vaccines until my daughter suddenly started having all of these strange health issues.
She was ALWAYS a healthy child, happy and outgoing, active and just a joy to be around.
Now, she is a totally different child. She is always sick..always in pain..and cries a LOT, so scared that she will die in her sleep from the breathing problems. She describes it as breathing through a blanket or that an elephant is sitting on her chest.
She has SO many of the exact same symptoms as all of the other girls that have been injured.
It is NOT a coincidence! All of these Gardasil girls have the same symptoms, some worse than others, but the bottom line is the one thing they all have in common is Gardasil.
These symptoms are NOT in their heads!
My daughter started having dizziness, overall weakness, pain and numbness in both legs and left arm BEFORE we found out about any of these other girls having the same issues.
When I called her doctor that gave her the vaccine (as soon as she started with these symptoms) she said it was NOT the Gardasil vaccine that is causing it. How could she be so sure? This is such a NEW vaccine...a DANGEROUS and UNNECESSARY vaccine!
HPV is not an STD (research this!).
Cervical cancers have gone down 70% since the PAP smear came along.
This is NOT an epidemic! Why are they mandating this vaccine for as young as 9 year old girls for a vaccine that doesnt even do what they claim it will do?
Girls are now coming down with cervical lesions and HPV AFTER receiving Gardasil! I'm talking about healthy young girls that did NOT have these things BEFORE getting Gardasil.
Young girls dropping dead within hours of getting the vaccine and they think we are all stupid enough to believe it was a huge tumor that was in her heart and had spread to her lungs? (I'm speaking of the 14 yr old that just recently died after receiving Cervarix).
If that young and healthy and active young girl really DID have this so called huge tumor, she would have had symptoms. A tumor like that doesnt just up and kill it's host without a 'wasting away and painful period'.
That is a complete cover-up!
Just like the young girl that has been paralyzed and hospitalized for the last year, Ashleigh Cave. Because her mother was trying to speak out and find out what exactly happened to her daughter, they have now placed that child under protective orders! To shut the mother up?
This is all about $$$$$ at the expense of our young daughters (and now sons) health and lives!
It is an outrage!!!
Please see my posts at ******
And this website:
There, you can see other girls' stories and their pictures..there is also a memorial document with pictures and stories of young girls that have died after receiving Gardasil.

My daughter at 14 years of age had this shot. She didn't feel good after, but I thought "normal" vaccination reaction and haven't thought about it since. Feeling a bit faint, a fever, and such.
However, last September (a few months later) she was diagnosed with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. It started with her heart racing, she looked pale (and sometimes even yellowish), tired all the time, her urine turned a dark color, and fainting. Not knowing anything about this I assumed that she was dehydrated, and had her drink lots of water. Until she started fainting, at which time I took her straight to our family doctor. (Another reason that I wasn't to worried is she actually had been to many doctors who didn't seem to think this was abnormal.)
She started on high doses of prednisone to keep her immune system depressed, and has now moved on to mercaptopurine (as the steroids made her suicidal.)
I plan on bringing this "possible" connection up to her hematologist and I will report back (she has an appointment on the 11th.). However, I think it is better to do a little scare here, and possibly help someone rather than take for granted that I am not sure... (So take this information with a grain of salt.)
Also note that this was sudden onset, they can find no cause, and we have no family history nor any of the other typical reasons (sometimes can be "medicine" induced.) 10 months later she is still testing positive on her combs test though.-- By terrasears | Reply | Private Message me
You need to go gluten-free/sugar-free/casein(dairy)-free, drink bottled or distilled water and introduce extra vitamins. (B12, D3, magnesium, folic acid, and a liver boost, which you can find at a vitamin shop). There is lots of information at the yahoo group - so please join so you can get healthy. Gardasil is a GMO (genetically made) which has problems all its own - but you need to get the metals out of your body which are in this vaccine and in many foods you eat - start reading labels! No high fructose corn syrup and lots of rest. Please check out the chat group - and please file a VAERS report - that is URGENTLY needed to get this vaccine off the market.-- By nyminnow | Reply | Private Message me

We have been to a rheumatologist for the joint pains, they did blood work and there is a marker for some sort of auto immune disorder, but nothing specific.
I never connected the dots to the shots. In January of this year she started having severe diarrhea, stomach and intestinal pains. She has no energy, the most basic activities wear her out. We ended up at a gastroenterologist looking for a diagnosis (they thought it was Crohn's or lupus). All the tests have come back negative, they said she had gastritis and blew us off. She is on medicine for the intestinal pain, a prescription for an antacid for gastritis and an anti-inflammatory for the joint and bone pain.
She was a straight "A" student up to January and has had to finish her junior year at home. It has been a very stressful experience for all of us.-- By janet1991 | Reply | (3) replies | Private Message me

I started researching and found out about all these
other girls that are having the same, if not worse,
symptoms! I was in shock and disbelief.
That same day, Friday, March 20th, 2009, she had an attack that was so bad I had to take her to the ER. At the hospital, they ran blood tests and did a CT scan. All tests came back normal. The doctor there told me not to get the third shot because he said my daughter was having an allergic reaction to the vaccine.
Since Friday, March 20th, I have been researching nonstop. My daughter has been having new symptoms almost daily such as back pain, bladder pain, pain behind both kneecaps, severe weakness, tingling in both legs and left arm, left arm is very weak, nausea, weight loss, etc.
Friday night, she had an episode where her entire
body was jerking uncontrollably and she was in pain with
her legs and left arm. Her heart was racing so fast and
she was having trouble breathing. (she constantly says
she feels like she cant get a deep breath and that it
I was able to get her relaxed enough to go back to sleep.
On Monday, March 23rd, I called her doctor and told them what was going on. They told me to bring her right in. They also said that VARS had contacted them asking for my daughters' medical records. ( I had already reported to VARS before calling the doctor).
At the doctors office, I talked to her doctor about all of these cases and deaths that have been reported. She kept saying it was not the Gardasil. I asked her how she could be so sure, since this is such a NEW vaccine, nobody knows what to expect! She eventually started partially agreeing with me and examined my daughter. She called to get the reports from what the hospital had done and said she wanted to do more bloodwork. I had to take her back in to the dr's office the following day, Tuesday, for more blood to be drawn. They took 6 vials and said we wont have the results for about a week.
I am CERTAIN that my daughter is suffering because of
the Gardasil shots!
She was a healthy, happy, vibrant, energetic 16 year old. Now she is tired all the time, weak, sick, and cant do her school work. She is very scared because of what we have found out from other girls.
I'm afraid for what is to come! Every day she seems to have a new symptom.
I found a great support group at ******
They have been a great help to me over these last few days. They have done their homework and are working very hard to get our government to do a thorough investigation into Merck and Gardasil before more of our beautiful daughters are harmed or killed.
I urge everyone to educate yourselves before you
vaccinate with Gardasil!
If you want more information or if you want copies of the documents that we have found, including a Warning Letter that was sent from the FDA to Merck last year that found them in violation of NUMEROUS things, come to our ****** group.

My daughter has been referred to Duke Medical Center now and will go for her first appointment in about 1 month. The FDA and CDC need to pay attention to what is going on and pull this drug off the market. If you have been affected, please ensure that you report your reaction to the VAERS Database. Your doctor is required to report adverse effects, so demand that they do so.
I hope this helps, and if anyone tries the vitamins and it does help or if you would just like to ask me some questions about my daughters experience, email me at ****** and let me know.

1. Reduce exposure to food allergens, especially foods containing gluten. Gluten is known to cause damage to the nervous system (brain and nerves). Email me (******) and I will send you a list of foods that contain gluten. I do not bother to try to figure out food allergies (there are NO good allergy tests). Just restrict the diet to meat (chicken, turkey, lamb and fish), vegetables (no tomatoes, eggplant or potatoes), and homemade chicken broth.
2. Manage blood sugar levels by eating protein every 2 hours. This helps maintain proper levels of glucose in the blood. In women, this helps to reduce high testosterone levels and feeds the cells so they can function properly. Also, proper glucose levels are necessary for correct brain function. The brain only weighs 2-3 pounds but uses 1/3 of the body’s glucose. Without a healthy functioning brain there is nothing to orchestrate healing in the body.
3. Manage any anemic condition. There are many types of anemia. Iron anemia is only one type. NEVER take iron unless you know you have iron anemia. Low iron levels on a blood test do not mean you are iron anemic. Iron toxicity is very damaging; taking iron can cause tremendous inflammation as well as oxidative stress on the body. It is a must if you need it but detrimental if you don’t.
4. Reduce homocysteine levels to below 5. At levels above 5 there is the possibility of barrier breakdown. There is a gray area between 5 and 7. Levels absolutely have to be below 7 but I do not like to gamble so I choose to get them below 5.
5. Take care of ALL gut infections and these can be analyzed with stool tests. There are many different types of stool testing out there. The ones your traditional M.D. will order are not sufficient (we have had many patients show false negatives with these). The test I use in my office is by Metametrix Laboratory. It is DNA type testing and is the most sensitive test around.
6. You must fix the barriers. This can be done in different ways and is too complicated to explain here.
7. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day (Example: 120 pound person would need to drink 60 ounces or about 2 liters of water per day. Water does not include juice, soda, milk, etc.
The above list is not comprehensive, but it’s a good foundation. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to watch a child’s health decline due to a vaccination that a doctor recommends. If your child is suffering, my prayers are with you. Do not underestimate the power of prayer when it comes to healing. Healing cannot take place without the will of God.
May God bless you and your family with His power of healing.

within 3 years
after the first symptom of the vaccine injury; or
within 2 years of the vaccine-related death and 4 years after the start of the first symptom of the vaccine-related injury from which the death occurred; or
2 years from the date the vaccine is covered for injuries or deaths that occurred up to 8 years before the date the vaccine is covered. The HPV vaccine is covered by the VICP as of February 1, 2007 and claims have to be filed by February 2, 2009 for injuries or deaths that occurred on or after February 1, 1999 that do not qualify under the other filing periods. Although two years from the date of February 1, 2007, would be February 1, 2009, under the current Rules of the United States Court of Federal Claims, the deadline under section 2116(b) of the PHS Act would be February 2, 2009, because February 1, 2009, falls on a Sunday.
This answer reflects the current thinking of the United States Department of Health and Human Services on the topics addressed. This answer does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind the Department or the public. The ultimate decision about the scope of the statutes authorizing the VICP is within the authority of the United States Court of Federal Claims, which is responsible for resolving claims for compensation under the VICP.
Neither my friend nor I had never heard anything like this before, and I am wondering if others know or know of girls who have actually gotten cervical cancer after receiving Guardasil.

Reading your stories has brought tears to my eyes. I have received my first shot two months ago, on October 20th. Since October 24, I have had nothing but struggle. I am 25 years old and have been in good health my entire life. The only thing I have ever had a struggle with was UTIs, approximately 2 times a year. However, they were gone with the first dose of antibiotics, within 24 hours. Couple of years ago, my gynecologist had completely cured me from that annoying disease through a course of medication that I took for two months. That was not a very easy process but I was free at last. I did not have a care in the world. However, my nightmare came back after the first Gardasil shoot. Exactly three days later, I woke up with severe pains in my lower abdomen, as well as all the other common symptoms of a UTI. Honestly, being as careful as I always have been with UTIs, I did not put Gardasil and this infection together. I went to my doctor. She tested me for a UTI, said I had a small presence of bacteria in my urine, and released me with a prescription for Macrobid. After a week of taking the meds, things were not looking up. It has been two months, and things have not gotten better. About two weeks ago I started searching for other causes of this pain that is resisting going away. I have been on three courses of antibiotics and going back to my doc tomorrow, after coming across this discussion. I have never experienced pain like this before, having considered myself a veteran of UTIs. I thank you for sharing your stories and advise everyone to think twice about having these shots or taking your children. I am not going back for another dose of this nightmare! I don't even know when I will feel normal again. Everyday starts with a thought: "Will I feel pain when I go to the bathroom today?" I am now completely sure that Gardasil had everything to do with my recent condition.-- By tgasparyan | Reply | Private Message me
After much research by my mom and myself, we have come to the conclusion her spontaneous arthritis was a result of Gardasil. Most likely the combination of Gardasil and the meningitis vaccine was the cause. It should be noted that the FDA allowed Merck to fast-track Gardasil for approval. The Gardasil vaccine was never tested with the meningitis vaccine; however, most physicians give multiple vaccines at one time.-- By alturner007 | Reply | (1) replies | Private Message me
My sister who is 15 in high school has also received the Gardisil shot. However, after passing out upon receiving the shot and due to difficulty breathing, my Mom did not allow her to get the second shot. My sister has been in and out of the doctors office and emergency room several times due to what doctors believe was a pulled muscle or inflamed chest cavity.
However, after reading the similar side effects that other girls have been experiencing, I am sure that both of our side effects are due to the Gardisil shot.-- By lindsaydanielle | Reply | Private Message me

When the girl finally began to be able to sit up again and eat on her own, she experienced mental fuzziness, memory problems, and speech problems. She had perpetual tingling and jolts of pain on the arm that had gotten the shot, in her side and abdomen and down both legs. Three weeks after the shot, she tried to get up out of bed and found she could not walk. She was diagnosed tentatively with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, also with nerve damage. It took her three full months to walk again without help, and even now, a year and a half later when she comes into the office she still has a bit of a limp. She lost over 25 pounds, which is pretty sad as she was not overweight or anything. She now looks very skinny and sickly. She had to quit school and started being home schooled because of the physical and memory problems and depression. I feel so sorry for her and her parents, who thought they were doing the right thing.-- By bastet11 | Reply | Private Message me
I am a healthy 24-year-old woman who started my GARDASIL shots February 08'. The first shot, no problem. Second shot, wow. I felt like I was literally going to break. All of my joints, muscles hurt and felt very, very weak. I went to bed with a 102 fever, huge swollen glands, sore throat and cold sweats. I called my doctor and she said I "probably had the flu before I got the shot and I was just feeling my illness now.." she dubbed my issue an "coincidence". Well, I believed her because I wanted to. I didn't want to think I put myself in harms way, so I went on.
Well it's been 7 months and I can tell you my memory loss, muscle pain and bouts of depression have been a big issue. These are all things I have never dealt with in the past. Could it be GARDASIL, I'm not 100% sold that it is, but I am not throwing that idea out either.
I am really starting to struggle with the idea that we don't know the long term side effects yet.

This is from Merck's website:
Serious Adverse Reactions in the Entire Study
A total of 237 subjects out of 25,274 total subjects (9- through 45-year-old girls and women; and 9-through 15-year-old boys) who received both GARDASIL (N = 13,686) and AAHS control (N = 11,004) or saline placebo (N = 584) reported a serious systemic adverse reaction following any vaccination visit during the clinical trials for GARDASIL.
Out of the entire study population (25,274 subjects), only 0.05% of the reported serious systemic adverse reactions were judged to be vaccine related by the study investigator. The most frequently reported serious systemic adverse reactions for GARDASIL compared to AAHS control or saline placebo and regardless of causality were:
Pelvic inflammatory disease ,
Urinary tract infection ,
Pulmonary embolism .
One case (0.007% GARDASIL: 0.0% AAHS Control or Saline Placebo) of bronchospasm; and
2 cases (0.02% GARDASIL: 0.0% AAHS Control or Saline Placebo) of asthma were reported as serious systemic adverse reactions that occurred following any vaccination visit.
In addition, there was 1 subject in the clinical trials, in the group that received GARDASIL, who reported two injection-site serious adverse reactions (injection-site pain and injection-site joint movement
Systemic Autoimmune Disorders in Girls and Women 9 Through 26 Years of Age
In the clinical studies, 9- through 26-year-old girls and women were evaluated for new medical conditions that occurred over the course of follow-up. New medical conditions potentially indicative of a systemic autoimmune disorder seen in the group that received GARDASIL...includes all subjects who received at least one dose of GARDASIL.
Of the 10,706 who received Gardasil:
120 developed Arthralgia/Arthritis/Arthropathy
4 developed Autoimmune Thyroiditis
10 Coeliac Disease
2 Diabetes Mellitus Insulin-dependent
2 Erythema Nodosum
7 Inflammatory Bowel Disease‡
2 Multiple Sclerosis
2 Optic Neuritis
4 Pigmentation Disorder§
3 Raynaud's Phenomenon
6 Rheumatoid Arthritis††
1 Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
1 Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
6.2 Post-Marketing Experience
The following adverse events have been spontaneously reported during post-approval use of GARDASIL. Because these events were reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not possible to reliably estimate their frequency or to establish a causal relationship to vaccine exposure.
Blood and lymphatic system disorders: Autoimmune
hemolytic anemia, lymphadenopathy.
Gastrointestinal disorders: Nausea, pancreatitis, vomiting.
General disorders and administration site conditions: Asthenia, death, fatigue, malaise.
Immune system disorders: Autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reactions, bronchospasm, and urticaria.
Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders: Arthralgia, myalgia.
Nervous system disorders: Dizziness, Guillain-Barré syndrome, headache, motor neuron disease, paralysis, seizures, syncope sometimes resulting in falling with injury, transverse myelitis.
Vascular Disorders: Deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolus.
Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients below 9 years of age nor in pediatric males of any age.

I did have pneumonia in April, and I'm not sure if that's connected to the vaccine in anyway, but I was usually sick quite frequently with sore throats and a little nausea before I got the shot.
I've had tonsillitis as well and just had my tonsils removed, so I'm really starting to hope even more so than before that I do not get any side effects from this drug.
My heart truly goes out to all of you who have lost someone due to this drug or has someone close to them with brain disorders. You'll definitely be in my prayers.

also, a post the one of my friends sent me from a news story:
10 deaths have been linked to Gardasil since September 2007, and there have been 140 reports so far this year of serious side effects such as miscarriage and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Well. We’ve already lost 18 girls, some as young as 12, in the effort to spare them from the mere possibility of cervical cancer later in life. Others have developed debilitating and potentially life-threatening ailments within weeks of being vaccinated, and others still have had spontaneous abortions or given birth to babies with birth defects.
Also consider this: Cervical cancer usually develops in your late 20s to mid 30s. The protection period of Gardasil is estimated to be 5 years. That means, if you receive your first set of shots when you’re 10 years old, you’d need at least 2 to 4 additional booster shots to make it through your 30s. And THAT means you’ll have to expose yourself to the potential side effects of Gardasil over and over and over again.
But now to the real clincher, and I want you to read the following section as many times as you need to let this truly sink in…
U.S. statistics show there are 30 to 40 cervical cancer cases per year per one million women between the ages of 9 and 26, which is the age bracket that Gardasil targets (and was tested on).
According to Merck, Gardasil was shown to reduce pre-cancers by 12.2% to 16.5% in the general population. So, instead of ending up with 30 to 40 cases of cancer per million, per year, in that age bracket, the HPV vaccine can potentially bring it down to 26 to 35 cases of cervical cancer.
What that means is that you would have to vaccinate one million girls to prevent cervical cancer in 4 to 5 girls.
Further, about 37 percent of women who develop cervical cancer actually die from the disease, so vaccinating ONE MILLION girls would prevent 1 to 2 DEATHS per year, at the bargain-basement price of $360 million per year, plus potentially lifelong suffering for an untold number of women, which has no price tag.
Is this REASONABLE?

In May of 2007 I received my second Gardasil shot and yet again, a few days later I started to feel like I was getting another Urinary Tract Infection. I went to the doctor numerous times between the second and third shot...all for bladder and urinary tract pain. For months I was on different antibiotics and they were not making the pain go away. After visiting a number of urologists, I found out that the urine cultures had all been coming back negative - showing no sign of an infection, so the antibiotics were pointless. All tests that I had run, both blood and urine came back normal. It is not standard procedure for a doctor to call you if your test results come back normal, but there was clearly something wrong, so I searched for a urologist who would believe me that I wasn't making up the pain I was in.
In August 2007, I had a cystoscopy done (they took a scope and went into the bladder to look in the bladder wall) and they concluded that I have an incurable bladder disease called Interstitial Cystitis. This is a condition where there becomes a defect in the bladder wall causing it not to have the protective mucus layer inside of it. The pictures of inside my bladder show red, raw skin, obviously showing the severity of my case of it.
There is no evidence as to what causes Interstitial Cystitis, and there is no proven successful way of treating it. The initial signs are exactly the same as a Urinary Tract Infection (painful bladder spasms, painful urination, body aches and back pain). The main difference is the fact that it is not an infection. There are thousands of people with Interstitial Cystitis who are misdiagnosed as having chronic Urinary Tract Infections.
I received my third Gardasil shot in October of 2007 and that is when EVERYTHING fell apart. The bladder pain became constant and there has not been one minute in a day since that shot I have not been in unbearable pain. This is when everything else in my body began to crash down as well. The other health problems and side effects from the Gardasil that I am having are constant sore throat, vicious migraines, vision changes, back pain, body aches, joint pain, sinus problems, vomiting, constipation, dizziness...I could keep going on forever!
I have tried all of the conventional treatment for Interstitial Cystitis and have gotten NO relief from the pain and other side effects. The doctors didn't know what to do, so they put me on OxyContin and a diet consisting of no acidic foods. That has now posed its own set of problems seeing as now my body is addicted to the narcotic, and I have gone from 5'6'' 125lbs to 100lbs over the course of a year due to the diet. I am extremely malnourished and have to take B12 vitamin shots once a week due to the severe anemia. I am 24 years old, and feel like I am 100. I can not live a normal life, I am going to lose my job from numerous absences, I lost my fiancé and am not able to have an intimate relationship anymore, I am extremely depressed, I have to have my family clean my apartment because I am too sick to do it, I can not do social activities because I am too tired and in pain. This vaccine has DESTROYED my life! I am desperately seeking out someone else who is having bladder problems due to the Gardasil so that I can contact an attorney. This needs to be OFF the market a soon as possible so that it does not run any other lives! Gardasil has caused some deaths, but in my mind, I'd rather die than live with the pain I am having. I did notice there are some posts regarding girls getting urinary tract infections... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have your urine cultured because there is a good chance it may be Interstitial Cystitis!
I am desperately looking for someone who is having some of these symptoms so that I can go to a lawyer and get something going before things like this happen: Numerous states are pushing to make it mandatory that girls receive the vaccine before they enter the 6th grade. We can not let this happen! We all need to stick together and somehow fight this and get out lives back!
Let me know if you are IN - and also what you thought about my post!
You can email me at ******
Bless All of You!

I went to my doctor and she said I was having panic attacks! Why would I still feel sick for days at a time if it was panic attacks. I'm still feeling sick now and its been just over two weeks since I got the 1st shot. Does anyone know how long it stays in the body?-- By dinexdashed | Reply | (1) replies | Private Message me

So, obviously it is very important to go to their website http://www.fda.gov/opacom/backgrounders/problem.html and report these problems. I was concerned after hearing from someone who had been in intensive care for several weeks and treated for toxic shock syndrome and who told me she had met another girl in our area at the hospital who had nearly the same experience after receiving the Gardasil vaccine.-- By concerned_friend | Reply | Private Message me

I related to the doctor my thoughts pertaining to Gardasil and I feel as though he has dismissed my idea.
I have found some many stories similar to yours and my daughter’s but I believe because Gardasil is so new, nothing is coming out yet about it.
If anyone has any other information, please advise!! We are desperate here in Philadelphia.
I sent just a local email out to a few contacts talking about the symptoms, girls in our community Papillion, NE are suffering from similar side effects. How can we stop this from hurting other children?
