Yhden lääkärin kertomus: Hän oli v. 1992 hoitanut borrelioosia sairastavaa naista (abt 1 kk iv + 1 kk suun kautta). Naisen oireet hävisivät hoidon aikana (mm. nivel- ja aivo-oireet). Vuosien aikana naisella oli aika ajoin lieviä oireita. Tässä kuussa nainen sai kolmoisrokotteen (tuhkarokko, sikotauti, vihurirokko) ja sen seurauksena naisen oireet pahenivat jälleen huomattavasti: niskajäykkyys, hikoilu, masennus, fatiikki, nivelkivut jne.
...."I saw a patient yesterday who had been treated by me for Lyme in 1992. She presented with a tick bite, rash, fever followed by arthritis, encephalopathic sx and meningeal manifestations.She went into a complete remission after one month of IV followed by one month of orals but had intermittent low grade symptoms over the years when under stress.
In November 2004 she was required to get the MMR vaccine for a graduate program. After 3 days her arms was hot and swollen and she had a high fever. This was followed by a progressive and worsening syndrome of:
neck stiffness, joint pain and stiffness, sleep disorder, cognitive dysfunction, drenching sweats, fatigue and now severe depression and mood swings.
I have looked up as much as I can find on a direct side effect and it seems that there is virtually nothing in adult literature. There is evidence on MMR and autism in children and there is a CME on vaccine reactions which was so skeptical, sarcastic and negative that it sounded very reminiscent of the sort of venom spewed from our opponents."
