September of 2014 my 16yo daughter lost feeling and use of her left arm. First part of 2015 she started having trouble urinating that eventually led to her not being able to urinate at all. I have to catheter her every 3-4 hours. Then she lost control and sensation of her bowels. Then she started having trouble walking and now can't do that and has to use a wheelchair. Even her upper torso has become so weak that she can't sit up without something behind her. We have been to many doctors and had several tests that show nothing and we can't get a diagnosis. Just wondering if there was anyone else out there that has been through this that could help us. Please let us know, thanks.

  • Had she recently had the cervical cancer vaccine 'Gardasil'? Sounds similar to some of the effects I have read about.

  • She had that vaccine in 2010. Her Pediatric doctor said there was too big of a time gap for it to be that. Thank you for the response.
