Sparky thank you for your input. I understand everyone is different. I never had any reactions to anything except I thought once while on levuquin my hands started to hurt. I was t sure if it was in my head fom reading the black box warning or coeincedental. But didn't want to risk it. So got something else to replace it and I report it as an allergy now. Being a military brat I had lots of vaccines traveling overseas as a child. I have my suspicions about why this happened.
Mercury poising- I have a lot of old silver fillings and I think tetnus has mercury not sure about hep-b but I think not.
Lyme- never saw a tick in me until a few weeks after symptoms began but I worked in my patio and yard going in the woods (deep) to dump brush and leaves. Before and after SX. Never checked for ticks until I was already sick.
Brought on by vaccine, Ive read Hep-B has been suspected of bringing on MS SX.
Weak immune system, I had frequent UTI's a 3 month cough last spring and shingles two years ago. I also know I haven't been good about eating my veggies and hardly ate any fruits. I like them but get an itch in my throat from a bunch of them.
I also wonder if this is not my first attack. It's definatley the worse thing I've ever had. But I recall once after being out in the sun at a double header redsox game on the way home my arms went numb. Maybe 20 mins. I thought dehydration. Another time while giving birth to my son they and my face went numb. Doc said it was pressure on my nerves. It went away as soon as he was born. It was only a few minutes. The one I think of most is about 6 years ago my arms were aching so bad I didn't want to use the PC. There was no numbness I can recall but it's exactly how my arms felt after the numbness came this time they ached the same way. That lasted a week or two. I know it was in the summer. One last thing would be occasional sharp nerve pain/attack in my rear. It would come randomly and in spurts, but only a few times for short periods over many many years. So maybe I had something going on for a while. I don't know.
Jimmylegs - I've gotten them on and off but last year in December I got one, then in february yet another and then April. Number three. It seemed to me in december it hadn't gone away completley. I lowded up on cranberry supplements which seemed to help. Same thing in February. That was the most frequency I ever had with getting them. I'm anxious to get my blood results back, I'm curious what they say.
I don't think you are too far off with just eating right and supplementing. Our bodied function optimally when things are in balance. We didn't come from eating straight sugar and carbs every day. Our bodies need what nature provides. Unfortunately it's too easy to eat bad and many if us give in to our cravings which is our bodies mechanism for getting as much food as possible, especially I'f it taste good, so In my case anyway I'd say I'm a sugar holic. I'm not over weight, lucky my body metabolizes what I eat. But I don't always make good choices.
I was exercising, P90x or insanity workouts, for the last few years. Not religiously but I've done the whole 90 days maybe missing two days. Then I took a break. Got sick, with shingles, that that was about 2 1/2 years ago. Thought I was too young for that at 39. Anyway sice then I would start up again on and off, had to stop here and there. Most recently in the end of Jan. I had hurt my lower back at work so went to chiro for 13 weeks on WC. Was just getting back to working out and now haven't done anything in nearly 3 months. Depressing.
I think I have more energy in my legs but just moving my arms repeadiatly at work makes me really feel shakey. I'm also worried about my lower abdomen muscle. It's felt like its been pulled. From nothing it's been like this for 4-5 weeks. Not sure if that's where my lower shake is coming from.
Oh well. I'll take it one day at a time.
Thanks so much for posting your experiences with vaccines. Please keep them coming!
