My profession requires having a health card for which I am mandated to get the Hepatitis vaccinations. When I first received this Hepatitis A
vaccination March 17th of ’03 everything went normal. However, when I received the second & final booster shot on Tuesday, January 15th, 2008 I went
home and took a nap in the afternoon. When I woke up at 6pm, I had the feeling of a popcorn kernel in the back of my throat on the left side. I
disregarded it as having a dry throat from sleeping with my mouth open under the heater vent.
For the next several days, I continued to have this feeling no matter what I did to clear and coat my throat. I couldn’t take it anymore on the
morning of Sunday, January 20th, so l grabbed my flashlight and looked at the back of my throat. What I saw literally horrified me! There was this
piece of flesh on the left side of my throat that was swollen to the size of a golf ball! It had so many large white dots the size peas inside each of
the pores it actually looked like a disco ball for Smurfs (stop laughing).
I immediately panicked trying to think of what kind of desert insect could have crawled inside of my mouth while I had been sleeping and laid eggs in
the back of my throat. I tried calling several clinics but it was MLK Day weekend and no one was available until Monday or Tuesday. So I while I was
in my hairdresser’s chair Sunday, I told him about my dilemma and he asked to look at it (men!). He bust out laughing so hard he cried. “Nothing
has laid eggs in your throat. You have tonsillitis. You probably had an allergic reaction to the Hep vacc. Go see your doctor.”
Okay. I’m not a drama queen, but I’ve never had tonsillitis in my 38 years of life. I’ve had strept throat, ear infections, sinusitis,
bronchitis and pneumonia, but never tonsillitis. Therefore, I would not know how to identify it. So I took some Amoxicillin I had left over from a
root canal a few months earlier. It helped a bit but didn’t cure the issue.
I saw THREE different medical doctors (two were specialists) and told them the timeline of what happened. Not one of them attributed my ‘sore
throat’ to the vaccination and none of them could see what my ailment was. “Tonsillitis is when both of your tonsils swell up and kiss.” For the
first time in my life, I was actually refused a prescription by THREE different doctors who told me to “just drink water and take it easy”. One
physician actually went as far as to tell me it was my imagination. (I’m a Psychologist, I know the difference.)
I have tried numerous remedies to help but haven’t found a cure for the reaction. My throat is constantly irritated, a darker shade of pink than it
should be, has bumps (not white in color) and I seem to get allergy symptoms every other month. I know that all of this is from the Hep Vacc.
Does anyone have any suggestions that may remedy this situation for me or anyone else with a similar issue?
Because I am a healthcare professional, I am concerned about my health if I am mandated to receive the Swine Flu vacc. Is there anything people
can do proactively to counteract the negative effects of a vaccination?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
