Researchers published a paper in August 2012 about a side effect of vaccinations: Complex regional pain syndrome type 1. The authors are Stephanie Richards and George Chalkiadis of the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne; Raman Lakshman of the Department of Pediatrics, West Suffolk Hospital NHS Trust, Suffolk, UK; Jim P Buttery of the Murdock Children’s Research Institute and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Unit, Monash Children’s Hospital, Monash University in Melbourne; and Nigel W Crawford of Royal Children’s Hospital, Murdock Children’s Research Institute, and Department of Pediatrics, The University of Melbourne in Melbourne.
Complex regional pain syndrome previously was recognized as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy that was characterized by severe pain, swelling and changes to the skin, per Wikipedia. It has been associated with dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. According to Wikipedia, type 1, also known as Sudeck’s atrophy, does not have demonstrable nerve lesions. Interestingly though, Wikipedia states that causes are unknown.
However, the Archives of Disease in Childhood [2012;97:10,913-15] paper “Complex regional pain syndrome following immunisation,” states that complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS-1) can affect one or more extremities characterized by persistent pain with “at least one sign of autonomic dysfunction in the affected limb(s).”
The paper goes on to state several precipitating factors. Perhaps the most candid report of all is that CRPS-1 occurs following “immunisation with rubella and hepatitis B vaccines.”
Nevertheless, the paper goes on to discusses CRPS-1 occurring in one adolescent following diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis vaccination and four cases following vaccinations with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.
That recognition of extreme pain and various autonomic dysfunctions in limbs have been reported by many young teenage females who suffered horribly after receiving the HPV vaccine. The website Truth About Gardasil Injuries chronicles what appears to be CRPS-1 or even CRPS-2 in various young ladies’ telling their sad HPV vaccine reaction stories.
You will note that Ashley Ryburn of Colorado, USA, experienced paralysis, pain, exhaustion in addition to the numerous other side effects, some life threatening, as she had to be given CPR on occasion.
Nora Kenny of Illinois, USA, had a seizure and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Theresa Bohn of Massachusetts, USA, in addition to all her adverse events, experienced “Frequent muscle spasms all over and a weakness/numbness/tingling in arms and pains in legs.” Sure sounds like what the researchers talk about in their paper, I think.
Steffanee Richardson of Missouri, USA, experienced severe joint and muscle pain and spasms, twitching, and jerking of the limbs and entire body in addition to the other side effects she suffered.
Cassie Summers of Missouri, USA, suffered tingling and numbness in the legs along with severe pain in the abdomen.
Holly Kysar of New Mexico, USA, experienced fatigue, joint and muscle pain in addition to the many other problems after receiving her HPV vaccine.
Laurel Brishel Prichard of New Mexico, USA, in addition to having stopped breathing, experienced a severe tremor that has not lessened nor gone away.
The Truth About Gardasil Injury website goes on to tell about similar dysfunctions experienced by Bridget Boyce, Lauren Brooke Mathis, and Crissey D Meeks—all of North Carolina; Brittney Fiste and Brooke McFarland of Ohio; Danielle Nicosia and Victoria Ventimiglia of Pennsylvania; Mikaela Tindell of Tennessee; Kelly E McFarland of Virginia; Kristen Allen of Washington State; Rachel Long of Wisconsin; Melodie Simms of West Virginia—all in the USA; and Samantha Hendrix and Maria Van Vessem presumably from the USA.
Wikipedia’s discussion regarding the history surrounding the CRPS syndrome states that it was noticed as far back as Civil War injuries—then commonly referred to as causalgias. What I find extremely provocative in Wikipedia’s discussion is this:
Furthermore, trauma related cytokine release, exaggerated neurogenic inflammation, sympathetic afferent coupling, adrenoreceptor pathology, glial cell activation, corticol reorganisation, and oxidative damage (e.g. by free radicals) are all concepts that have been implicated in the pathophysiology of CRPS.)
The above-mentioned pathophysiology fits in with what is known about cytokine release and brain inflammation, and about which I have co-authored papers with Harold E Buttram, MD, regarding Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS).
That’s when parents and/or caretakers are accused of shaking a child to death even when there is no physical trauma to the body, and which can be attributed to severe vaccine adverse reaction demonstrated by certain postmortem tests if performed shortly after death.
Furthermore, Wikipedia claims CRPS is three times more frequent in females than males. Someone in the U.S. CDC/FDA ought to be taking the Gardasil girls’ claims very seriously along with the VAERS reports about adverse reactions from all vaccines, which apparently number in the hundreds of thousands.
What I find most disturbing of all in the Wikipedia write up on CRPS is this:
The number of reported CRPS among adolescents and young adults is increasing. (Source)
The reason for the increase is that in the last twenty to thirty years mandated vaccinations for infants, toddlers, and teens in the USA have skyrocketed to an all-time high, more than any nation in the world. Wikipedia does a great job of comparing all the vaccines the USA mandates against other countries at this website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaccination_schedule.
Looking at the schedule, one can readily see that only four countries—the USA, the UK, Germany, and Australia—mandate the HPV vaccine. Have the researchers in Australia connected some long-ignored dots about vaccinations? I think so. The same type of research and investigations need to be undertaken in the USA where Big Pharma holds too much sway over the U.S. FDA and vaccine research.
