I chose to spread out my son's vaccines so two weeks ago he got his MMR shot at 2 1/2 years old. Well a week later he came down with a fever, at one point spiking to 104 and now that the fever has gone, he has been absolutely unbearable and I'm wondering if anyone else has gone through the same thing after the MMR? Lots of crying, lots of tantrums over nothing - I cannot tell you how bad it is. I feel like we have to walk on eggshells around him for fear of setting him off. He dropped his juice cup this AM and forget it, it was like the world was ending. I'm very upset over all of this and I am PRAYING this is just temporary. He had his tantrums but nothing like the ones he is having now ever since he got this shot - the shot that I was so afraid to get so I held off. Now I'm beginning to regret it. I'm hoping someone went through the same thing and can tell me it's temporary -again it's been 2 weeks since shot. I'm planning on calling the doctor but I know she won't help me.
On the other hand, if the three viruses interfered with his healthy constitution, he may be trying to get rid of them and does not know how. Measles are sometimes stuck in the gut for a long time and cause all sort of ill feelings. There are lots of side effects to the MMR shot and each one of the viruses that were injected simultaneously.
Give him lots of time to work this our of his body again and get back to his natural constitution. Vitamin A is supposed to work the viruses back out of the body again. I would give him a cod liver oil from a very good source for a few weeks and see if that makes a difference in him. Some people may suggest probiotics since the measles virus messes with the gut flora. I would do that also.
I do know persoanlly of at least 3 children who have reacted similarly to the MMR. I hope that your DS will be ok. Chances are he will be fine, but I believe that you have no way of knowing about long-term damage. I would get him to a qualified ND who treats children who have had adverse reactions to vaccines. Our ND does this and he tells me stories all the time of seeing children just like yours and others who seem to have much worse reactions and he has had great success in helping their bodies recover. I think time is important here too, as the longer that goes by, the longer the pathogens and virsues have to penetrate the body (at least that what he tells me). He has also told me he happens to see alot of kids post MMR....makes you wonder.
Listen to your gut mama. It was trying to tell you something before. I would Def not get a second dose of the MMR (JMHO) !!!!! I'm sure your son will be fine, but do what you can to ensure that he is! Goos luck and keep us posted

Granted he DID have issues before the MMR. But nothing compared to after the MMR. I, too, had a gut feeling that he shouldn't get it but gave in to the pressures.
The same doctors who refused to admit it had anything to do with the MMR were quick to diagnose him with autism shortly after.
Whether the vaccines had anything to do with the autism diagnosis, I'm sure we will never know (or, at least, no doctor would ever admit it).

I'd suggest taking the time to look at Dr. Moulden's website www.brainguardmd.com. It shows the toxic effects of all vaccinations. The first few chapters of his book are free if you click on Bloodflow. His DVD's are very enlightening.
The OP's last post was over two years ago, so I doubt she will answer. But if my child were in that situation, I would give 400,000 IU vitamin A for two days in a row. With this brand, http://www.klaire.com/prod/proddetail.asp?id=V060-01 that would be 80 drops, two days in a row, for a total of 160 drops.
If you used cod liver oil for any high amount of vitamin A, it would cause a vitamin D overdose.
I would also do long term care with VSL#3 probiotics.
My son seemed to change overnight at age three. He is almost 4 and I barely remember what it was like to have my sweet little boy, he is that different. He still hasn't had his MMR yet.
