Wow, that is a sad video. Think it'll get anybody to think twice about the efficacy of antiviral shots? Maybe it will work where science doesn't. Won't help her, though.

Incredibly sad.....

(I've always declined the free flu vaccination every winter where I work, as I didn't react well to a tetanus shot in 2000. The distressing condition of this poor girl makes me glad I have done so).

One wonders whether the neuroplasticity in her brain will eventually take over & she might recover some of her muscle control?

Dystaunia is a side effect that you can get from many meds. E.g. compazine for nausea is one of them. Thorazine prescribed for schizophrenia, etc is another. It's not a rare side effect. One in a million from the flu vaccine is likely much less than the number caused by meds.

It wasn't dystonia, but something mysterious that has resolved.
