My Son’s Sensory Processing Disorder Was Caused By the Hib Vaccine
My son was vaccinated on schedule.
Lyle was born via C-section. The day he was born he had a hepatitis B vaccine and a vitamin K shot. A week later he was circumcised.
He was vaccinated at 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months, exactly according to the CDC schedule.
The day of his 6-month shots he ran a fever of 103 and broke out in a rash.
I called the doctor and asked her about the rash and fever. I was a worried new mom—panicked that my beautiful baby had such a high fever.
The doctor was unconcerned. I distinctly remember her telling me that it was his immune system working after being vaccinated and that if he was uncomfortable to give him Tylenol.
She said to call the office back if the fever lasted more than 3 days.
I still felt worried. Even though the doctor seemed to think this was normal, my healthy baby was now lethargic and burning up with fever. He could barely lift his head. His eyes were glassy.
I went to set up his online medical portal and, looking through his medical records, I noticed that Lyle always had a fever within days of vaccination. I mentioned my concern about the fevers to my husband and we talked about delaying his vaccines.
We never intended to not vaccinate, but we thought if he was having a fever after each vaccine then maybe his system was too immature to handle so many shots at once.
At his 9-month visit the doctor recommended the flu shot. She was surprised we declined. We explained that we were going to wait. She seemed miffed at us about wanting to wait and asked why. We mentioned our son’s fevers. She immediately told us that fever was a normal response to vaccines. We also mentioned our concern that certain vaccines contain cells grown from aborted fetal tissue, something I had uncovered on-line.
“UGH!” The doctor cried. “I hate misinformation! That is a complete lie. The things people make up!”
