SF...I was reading your comment and was wondering if you had the Gardasil vaccine? Your symptoms sound like so many girls on the new website, truthaboutgardasil.org Please contact the moderators if this is the case. They have a wealth of knowledge and they are just moms of gardasil injured girls. Please keep me posted. Thanks, Laurie
