Types of Injuries

Below are some of the common and more severe types of injuries caused by reactions to vaccines or caused by the administration of vaccines:

Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), previously and alternatively known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is an extremely painful and debilitating syndrome that often causes irreversible long term effects on those suffering from it. Procedures involving injections from vaccines are known to be precipitating causes...

Brachial Neuritis

Brachial Neuritis is a condition affecting the brachial plexus, or the group of nerves between the cervical spine and the shoulder, down through the arm. Brachial Neuritis is the swelling and inflammation of those nerve bundles that send signals from the spine to the shoulder, arms, and fingers. The syndrome usually starts with sudden, severe, and steady pain or burning in the shoulder and upper...

Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)

Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a rare autoimmune disorder that causes rapid onset muscle weakness as the immune system attacks and weakens the peripheral nervous system and damages the coating around the nerves. Patients often do not recognize the symptoms right away...

Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a rare autoimmune disease marked by a sudden and widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord. In addition to causing the brain and spinal cord to become inflamed, ADEM also attacks the nerves of the central nervous system and damages their myelin, which is the protective covering of nerve fibers...

SIRVA – Shoulder Injuries Related to Vaccine Administration

SIRVA stands for Shoulder Injuries Related to Vaccine Administration and is not a specific injury, but a category of injuries that can occur due to the improper administration of a vaccine. SIRVA is typically categorized...

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an autoimmune disease which occurs when the body’s immune system slowly attacks the peripheral nerves stripping away the protective coating for the nerves called the myelin sheath. This causes weakness or paralysis of muscles, usually the legs and arms, in those suffering from CIDP. The most common symptoms include fatigue, loss or reflexes...

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder that causes excessive bruising or bleeding due to the immune system destroying its own platelets and causing the inability of blood to clot. This term is defined by the presence of a platelet count below 150,000/µL, however, symptoms typically do not develop until platelet counts drop below 50,000/µL...

Transverse Myelitis

Transverse Myelitis is a neurological disorder causing inflammation and injury to the spinal cord. This inflammation can damage or destroy myelin, the fatty insulating substance that covers nerve cell fibers. This damage causes nervous system scars that interrupt communications between the nerves in the spinal cord and the rest of the body.
