Gardasil, Linked to Autoimmune Disorder?

With the new school year quickly approaching, the decision to vaccinate your child is an important one.

However, it is also important to know what you are putting into your child’s body and what the adverse reactions are to these vaccinations.

According to the CDC, it is recommended that boys and girls 11 or 12 years of age receive the HPV vaccine. The CDC also says the vaccination may be administered as early as age 9.

HPV Vaccine Adverse Reactions

This widely administered vaccine is not without side effects.  Some reactions to the HPV vaccination include the following:

Severe Reactions:

  • Severe stomach pain
  • Swollen glandsclose-up-gardasil-label
  • Easy bruising, bleeding, confusion
  • Fever, chills, body aches
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath

Mild Reactions:

  • Pain, swelling, redness, bruising, or itching at the site of injection
  • Mild fever, headache, dizziness
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Runny or stuffy nose, sore throat
  • Tooth  pain, joing or muscle pain

The adverse reactions listed above, although categorized as “severe” and “mild” do not come close to what some young girls are facing after receiving the HPV vaccination.

A study published in the European Journal Of Neurology has linked the HPV vaccine to about five cases of a rare autonomic nervous system disorder called Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).  Symptoms include extreme dizziness, intense fatigue, tachycardia (a heart rate exceeding the normal range), heart palpitations, chest pain, severe headaches, and insomnia.

HPV Vaccination Connected To POTS?

The study describes about 7 cases young women were diagnosed with POTS after receiving the HPV vaccination, Gardasil.

All previously healthy young women developed POTS within 6 days to 2 months after immunization with the Gardasil vaccine.

The time frame for the onset of POTS symptoms are consistent with other well-known post vaccination syndromes such as Guillaine—Barre Syndrome.

According to the data of the study, none of these women had any genetic relation to POTS.  Further studies are needed in order to directly link the HPV vaccine to POTS.
