Guillain-Barré Syndrome Triggered by Vaccine Reaction

Guillain Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a disorder where a patient’s immune system goes haywire and attacks the peripheral nervous system. The symptoms of Guillain Barre Syndrome can begin anywhere from one day to several weeks after a vaccination, but usually peak around one to two weeks after the shot is given.  The chronic version of GBS is known as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy or CIDP.

What are the Symptoms of Guillain Barré Syndrome (GBS)?

CI-GBS-Graphic

The first symptom of Guillain Barré Syndrome is often weakness or tingling in the legs. Those sensations can spread to the arms and upper body until the victim becomes paralyzed.  GBS can cause such severe muscle weakness that patients must be put on a ventilator to breathe. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Pins and needles feeling in your extremities
  • Weakness in your legs that spreads upwards
  • Trouble walking or keeping your balance
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Problems breathing

Vaccines That Can Trigger Guillain Barré Syndrome

Influenza Vaccine or Flu Shot

Hepatitis A or Hepatitis B Vaccines

Gardasil or HPV Vaccine

Tetanus Shot, Tdap, or DtaP

Menactra (MCV4) Vaccine

Other Common Vaccinations

The Influenza Vaccine (Flu Shot)

Your chances of getting Guillain Barré Syndrome after a flu shot are extremely low, but it does happen. Researchers who studied vaccine reaction rates found that “GBS is more strongly associated with vaccination for influenza” than for any other vaccine. The Journal of the American Medical Association cites Guillain Barré as the most frequent neurological condition reported after getting the flu shot. But the flu shot isn’t the only vaccine that may lead to GBS.

Gardasil® (HPV) Vaccine

There is evidence that the Gardasil vaccine, also known as the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination, can trigger Guillain Barré Syndrome. This vaccine is commonly given to prevent cervical cancer. The Centers for Disease Control reports that “Guillain Barré has been reported after vaccination with Gardasil.”  Other studies show that 72% of patients who reported GBS symptoms after a Gardasil vaccine experienced those symptoms within 6 weeks after their shot.

What To Do if You Have GBS from a Vaccine Reaction?

GBS-Vaccine-BooksContact a lawyer who is experienced in representing patients in front of the United States Court of Federal Claims. Filing a vaccine injury claim is an extremely complex and litigious process.

There are no legal costs for an injured patient represented by Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. At the end of the case our law firm asks the Court for reimbursement of the fees and costs incurred representing you.

This reimbursement is separate from any money you’re awarded by the Court. You never have to share any portion of your money for damages with our law firm.

Types of Guillain Barré Variations

A number of different Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) variants have been identified.  Some of the most common are listed below:

  • Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (AIDP)
  • Miller Fisher Syndrome (MFS)
  • Acute Motor Axonal Neuropathy (AMAN)
  • Acute Motor Sensory Axonal Neuropathy (AMSAN)
  • Pharyngeal-Cervical-Brachial Variant
  • Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy
  • Bickerstaff’s Brainstem Encephalitis (BBE)

Is It Possible To Completely Recover from GBS?

Complete recovery from Guillain Barre Syndrome does occur, but often it is a long and painful road of therapy and treatment.  Unfortunately, some GBS patients end up with severe disabilities that will last throughout their lives.  In rare cases, patients can die from GBS.

Guillain Barré Syndrome is considered an autoimmune disorder because the body’s immune system attacks its own nervous system, damaging the coating around nerves.

Our Vaccine Attorneys Can Help

Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. currently represents hundreds of patients across the United States who are suffering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome triggered by a vaccine reaction.

Our law firm’s vaccine attorneys obtain compensation for patients with vaccine injuries by filing a lawsuit in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. The  outcome of the lawsuit determines what kind of compensation a victim may receive.

Not all attorneys are able to practice law before the Federal Vaccine Court. That’s why you should hire an attorney with extensive experience in this area of law. These are not simple personal injury cases.  They are medically and scientifically complex.
