Transverse Myelitis (TM) and Vaccine Reactions
Transverse myelitis, or TM, is a neurological disorder involving inflammation of the spinal cord. Serious damage is caused by attacks of inflammation, and so is the destruction of myelin, the fatty insulating substance that covers nerve cell fibers. This damage results in nervous system scars that interrupt communications between nerves in the spinal cord and the entire body. Studies show that rarely, vaccines trigger Transverse Myelitis.
Transverse Myelitis is an autoimmune disorder, which means that that body’s immune system has gone haywire. Vaccinations, in addition to viral and bacterial infections, are known to be triggers. The influenza vaccine, or flu shot, is one of the more common immunizations that causes TM. Our attorneys are experienced in representing clients who contracted Transverse Myelitis after a flu shot.
