MY TESTIMONY ..... LONG BUT PLEASE READ IT. I do not know if my daughter there is a chance of recovery, but I kindly ask all parents to read and inform themselves before making any vaccination. Thanks
Buongiorno, I am Anna Pezzotti, the mother of Julia, 15 years old. Giulia is vaccinated for the human papilloma virus, HPV (GARDASIL) in 2010 (two doses), and in 2011 the third dose. After the second dose Giulia has headache, muscle pain, tingling, dizziness, nausea. Referring to the pediatrician who did not find correlation with the vaccine. These symptoms, however, continue to exist, especially headaches and dizziness. Muscle aches less frequent.
In February 2011 we do the third dose, all the symptoms recur in more heavily and frequently. Even in this circumstance the pediatrician assures me that the cause was not the vaccine but that the problems between Julia and her father caused a number of ailments. Several times I had to go pick her up from school because she felt faint, and always warm. She always felt tired, slept a lot, or vice versa could not fall asleep.
Julia is hospitalized in August 2012 for erysipelas (acute infection/cellulitis) of the left leg. The left leg was swollen, reddened. She had a fever. It was impossible to touch the leg, Julia said she felt a "fire in the belly" that burned her leg! The antibiotic and pain killers are administered. In addition to the pain in my leg was getting headaches, dizziness, fatigue. Discharged back to walking normally and pains (head, muscles) are infrequent.
October 2012 was again hospitalized after fainting at school. In the days before complaining about severe pain in the head, body aches, could hardly walk and bend the left leg, she had vertigo and a strong temperature. Her studies became a problem, lack of concentration, always tired. She does not tolerate her temperatures well. When she 'was taken to the hospital presented rash on the face and body, reddish patches that then disappeared. Here, after several investigations, some blood tests were not going well, very low white blood cells, platelets idem, CT scan negative, despite the presence of all the existing problems at the time of admission, she was discharged and I was told to turn to Brescia at the Department of autoimmune rheumatic diseases.
After I consulted with doctor, I decided to take Julie to Genoa. She was admitted from 11/10/12 to 16/11/12. Always presents the same symptoms but also refers to see moving objects in the room or three times to see the same object. Here are diagnosed with Parvovirus B19 and advise us to bring Julia to a psychiatrist. The doctors they considered that the problems that Julia had with her father they had brought all this discomfort even if it had not been visited by a neuropsychiatrist.
Therefore, back in Lonato, Julia is followed by a neuropsychiatrist and he himself, after several trips a PS and another hospital in Brescia, declares that Julia had natural problems rather than psychological. He himself had contacted the doctors at PS Brescia supporting this thesis in our presence, but despite that Julia was discharged for the umpteenth time with no official diagnosis and the usual explanation of psychological problems.
Julia gets worse, so I decide to change the hospital and go to Verona. The left leg of Julia was divided into three zones, from the hip to the knee hot, warm from the knee to mid-calf and mid-calf to the foot completely cold. (This situation persists to this day). The lower limbs were totally different temperature between them and the nails of the left foot is blackened. She was admitted in Verona 22/04/13 to 24/04/13 and also here begins a series of investigations. ANA were positive 1:320 but there are other important factors for a diagnosis. The saturation of the blood are ok. There are no thrombosis or other. All tests negative. Myositis is found in the left calf, but which now seems to have vanished. For two months, Julia seems to be "semi-paralyzed" in her left limbs. She cannot bend, cannot move, limbs are tight - she said it felt like needles that stung a lot.
The leg and face swelled several times a day and still happens. In July she 2013 starts to walk without the aid of crutches; the pain was always present but more bearable. Towards the middle of the menstrual cycle pain reappeared strongly and she could not do anything. She was in bed in the dark as the light bothered her. She could not tolerate any noise, her music became her only medicine.
From November 2013 pain is again the most frequent and strong, and not just during ovulation. We go several times in a day hospital in Verona but no news. No one explains what is happening. Are gradually discarding certain assumptions - Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Pots, Borreliosis (Lime Disease) etc. There was always some elements missing so we could not get a confirmed diagnosis. The doctors did not know which way to go. Also, according to Dr. returned; does not have an explanation for all this and does not know how to proceed. The problems is simply that 'Julia is not well.'
February 17, 2014, after another syncope, Julie cannot even go to school, again unable to walk, only with crutches. She often has vertigo and dizziness, pain in the wrists, to all the muscles, the left leg, her head feels like it will explode (as she claims), her concentration is limited, cannot sleep at night, she is more and more nervous, she has to stop studying Law because the pain in the head increases. Her mood is very fickle, alternating moments/days of serenity others to irritability and anxiety.
Mid-April 2014 referring to the Dr. who follows her doubts about the vaccine Gardasil, but she denies that such a vaccine may arise from these symptoms. Since then, the doctor has no longer made sense and does not respond to our requests. He had promised that we would contact a Dr. (ASL Verona responsible for damage from vaccinations) but no call came. Julia had to be hospitalized after Easter in Verona for further investigation, but the doctor has not fixed any more hospitalization and wrote to me that closed the DH file on Julia because she is opposed to the homeopathic treatment and has other more urgent cases than Julia.
Throughout this period were given to Julia cortisone, Aulin, Tachidol, various anti-inflammatory drugs but without any results. Occasionally she has small pimples on her belly then they disappear and she also has them in her mouth. Julie is now walking again on her own, even if the pain persists and severe crises become more frequent. Also she has no heat tolerance and the weather is increasing. I hate to think how she will make it through Summer. Giulia was very healthy before this vaccine. Asthmatic, yes, but these issues, no. So if we want to define, this vaccine has prevented her from leading a peaceful life. Sporty, cheerful, lively, serenae.. but now she lives a nightmare. Her life, the life of a young girl, made hell, from a damn vaccine!! Thank you all for listening. And please be CAREFUL!
