The CDC says COVID-19 vaccines have been a remarkable success and serious adverse reactions are rare, but a teenager from Dyer County, Tennessee is in the hospital Tuesday after being one of those rare exceptions.
Inside Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, pictures of 17-year-old Shelby Grace Allen don’t capture what’s she’s gone through in just a matter of days.
A few weeks ago, Gracie — as her family and friends call her — started noticing problems like back pain. She eventually experienced tingling in her toes when she was maid of honor in a wedding, but what really alarmed her was what happened when she was bowling.
“I’m on the bowling team in Dyer County and I noticed when I was throwing the ball, I couldn’t feel my arm and legs. So, I was freaking out,” she said.
Her parents took her to the doctor in Jackson, Tennessee. Gracie is now being treated at Le Bonheur in Memphis for a rare condition known as Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
“When we got in, my doctor, my P.A. told me right off the bat what she thought it was. She said you have Guillain-Barré,” she said.
