Yellow Fever Vaccine

December 15, 2010 at 1:18 pm

I was immunized for Yellow Fever in 2008…and several days later my feet went numb..I was subsequently diagnosed with CIDP…My residence at the time was in Manchester, Vermont..I was immunized at Bennington Hospital. Dr.Latov, my NYC neuro, thought the vaccination was a possible culprit. I am not a rabid anti-vaccine type…but perhaps the incremental insult to the immune system is just too much for some of us…my condition is still “severe” and I am now doing prednisone, after unsuccessfully doing IVIG for 4 months.
