One of the very severe conditions occurring in young teenagers following their human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination is POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
On any given day they may experience the following symptoms:
- Orthostatic Intolerance (lightheadedness, dizziness)
- Chest pain
- Gastrointestinal cramps
- Inability to focus and concentrate for long periods
- Inability to read due to blurred vision
- Difficulty with recall
- Extreme fatigue
- Exercise Intolerance
- Appetite Disturbance
Because of the effect on blood pressure, people who suffer from POTS may not be able to stay seated for long intervals or stand for a long period of time, as this will affect their circulation. They will not be able to maintain that posture without feeling dizzy, lightheaded, and may even faint.
POTS is a form of dysautonomia
Dysautonomia refers to a disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)–the main bodily system that controls organ function and involuntary actions of the body.
During her 12 year-old health check Nina was given her first shot of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. Two months later Nina’s hair began to fall out and shortly after began to complain of flu-like symptoms. Her episodes of fatigue and nausea became more regular and as her very concerned mother recalled:
She was becoming ill at all times of the day. She would sleep on the bathroom floor hoping not to vomit one more time. I made repeated visits to the pediatrician’s office and pleaded with them to help our child. Thoughts were running through my head as to why she became ill so suddenly. Then I remembered my mother’s intuition moment and realized our world began to change after the Gardasil vaccine. The pediatrician was in agreement that we would not proceed with the second dose of the vaccine due to Nina’s illness.
Nina was eventually diagnosed with dysautonomia by Dr. Hassan Abdallah at The Children’s Heart Institute in Reston, Virginia.
Nina’s experience post Gardasil vaccination is not unusual
Lucija Tomljenovic et al studied a 14-year-old previously healthy girl who presented with flu-like symptoms, sore throat, low-grade fever, fatigue, swollen glands, and intense headaches in February 2009, approximately 2 months after her second quadrivalent HPV vaccine injection. They report that the 14-year-old suffered such debilitating symptoms such as
persistent headaches, dizziness, recurrent syncope, poor motor coordination, weakness, fatigue, myalgias, numbness, tachycardia, dyspnea, visual disturbances, phonophobia, cognitive impairment, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
The researchers state that this case clearly fulfilled the criteria for POTS/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) secondary to the quadrivalent HPV vaccine booster injection and that this is the seventh case of POTS associated with the qHPV vaccine Gardasil reported in the literature.
They also report that the highest number of both POTS- and CFS-related symptom reports was associated with HPV vaccines when compared with 2 other vaccines (Menactra and Varivax).
Dr Bill Anderson treats people with dysautonomia. He states that it is common to find this condition in those patients who became injured after HPV vaccines. He explains that any significant brain injury can affect our vital autonomic nervous system.
Many of the girls and boys who have become ill after Gardasil have clearly suffered brain injuries. This was described in a 2012 research article Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental by Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw.
The researchers examined brain tissue from two women who tragically died after vaccination with Gardasil. Their tests revealed an autoimmune vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) brought on by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of blood vessels. The researchers claim that their finding of HPV-16L1 particles in cerebral blood vessels and adhering to the walls of these vessels clearly shows that “vaccine derived immune complexes are capable of penetrating the blood brain barrier”.
Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, digestion, salivation, perspiration, pupil dilation/constriction, and other functions. The ANS consists of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
This condition is serious and its connection with Gardasil is acknowledged by Bill Anderson. He states that Gardasil injured girls often end up with POTS and its associated symptoms caused by the increase in sympathetic drive which results in increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure and collapse, and inability to digest food.
This research into POTS and dysautonomia is important and adds to our understanding of the pathophysiology at play in the increasing numbers of sick girls and boys after Gardasil. Many of the these very ill teenagers are told they are mentally ill – ‘that it is all in their head’. They are frequently told to ‘just get on with it’. But without proper diagnosis they cannot ‘get on with it’ and even then treatment is difficult, costly and long-term.
The HPV vaccines, Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix are dangerous vaccines and must be taken off the market. There is no proof that HPV causes cervical cancer.
Gardasil was fast-tracked though the U.S FDA, the food and drug administration, a process usually reserved for a drug or treatment for which there was no treatment available. Gardasil did not meet this criteria. There was no epidemic of cervical cancer and the Pap smear programs were in place and able to pick up abnormal smears.
In the interests of this generation of teenagers about to be vaccinated with these fast-tracked HPV vaccines we need to bring back some commonsense. For that I commend the work of Professor Peter Duesberg and the findings presented in a paper published in Molecular Cytogenetics (2013) of which Peter Duesberg is one of six authors which found that the changes seen in cervical cells are caused by exposure to carcinogens such as cigarette smoke. According to the authors, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.
