Cheerleader has swine flu shot and now she can only walk backwards

An American woman is convinced that a flu shot given to her has lead to a rare disorder which means she can only walk backwards. Even more strangely, she has lost the ability to talk at all - unless she is running.

The woman, Desiree Jennings, took a flu jab but just ten days later, she started shaking and struggled to walk in a straight line.

She can't stay still without having a spasm, but incredibly when she either walks backwards or runs forwards, she is normal again.

Just two years ago, she married her childhood sweetheart Brandon, and was training to become a cheerleader for the Washington Redskins.

Experts have diagnosed her rare condition as 'dystonia'. But despite the huge setback in her life, she claims the only thing important to her is "love."


  1. Wow....that is amazing and so sad. I wish her and her family the best through these tough times!


  2. This is just tragic- and these shots are dangerous without a doubt as there is still mercury and other toxins/adjuncts in there. She tought she was being smart and doing something healthy- I feel so bad for her and her loved ones.

    The only 'mercury' in any flu shot is in a non-toxic compound which enhances the shelf life of the shot... there are also no micro-chips in them.
