A GYM-MAD dad was paralysed by a rare disorder triggered by a chicken curry. David Braham, 40, was struck down after the dodgy dinner while watching his son play rugby - and in a matter of days was fighting for his life in an induced coma. Docs discovered that he was suffering from food poisoning which caused David to develop Guillian-Barré Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease. The dad-of-two was left paralysed from the face down unable to talk and ended up on a ventilator for four months, unable to breathe on his own. Former driving instructor David, from Bridgend, Wales, said: "I felt fine until I had the chicken curry. "I just picked it up as a quick meal whilst a pupil was taking their test - I'm almost certain that's what caused it. "I didn't feel quite right.

At the start of November, Shane and his wife Monique were planning for the upcoming festive season which they were expecting to celebrate with their extended family - which includes young children. So, the pair decided to get a flu shot to avoid catching or spreading any seasonal viruses. "About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick," Monique said. Shane started to complain that he couldn't feel his legs or arms, so his wife rushed him to Centennial Hills Hospital, LA, where he spent four days on a ventilator in the ICU. Docs started treating him for Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) - a rare disorder … [Read more...] about Man claims flu jab left him unable to breathe, walk or see just days later
