My son was recently diagnosed with Churg-Strauss syndrone, a.k.a.eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). It is a rare auto-immune disorder within the general vasculitis spectrum. Vasculitis causes inflammation and damage to blood vessels.
He’s had it since birth. We know this now because this finally explains, after 21 years, why he had been diagnosed with asthma, allergies, and weakened pulmonary system growing up, but no medication, no treatment, and no therapy ever touched it. Nothing worked. Now we know. Some of the fine blood vessels in his lungs had vasculitis, so he was always running << 100% efficiency with his lungs.
Being an auto-immune disorder, his immune system is compromised also, but his rheumatologist was emphatic he get the vaccine, and he did, the Moderna. No issues except arm pain for about 1 day after each shot. The reasoning his Dr. gave was COVID, to our son with an auto-immune disorder and compromised immune system, was a much higher risk than the vaccine.
Odd how its the opposite to your wife’s experience. So far, my son was vaccinated in March/April 2021, things have worked out very well for him. I don’t understand why the difference in your wife’s case and my sons. Maybe it’s his below normal lung function. I guess that’s why we listen to our own doctors.
Agreed, no Darwin Award for her.
