NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Brandy Parker-McFadden sits in her Vanderbilt hospital bed, unable to stand.

“Our youngest is like – are you ever going to walk again? We just reassure him this is extremely rare.”
The mother of three received her second Pfizer COVID shot on April 16. Hours later, an unusual sensation started in her legs.

“Then it turned into a horrible neck pain, and it just kept getting worse and worse,” recounted Brandy.
Her husband James knew something was terribly wrong. “She was screaming in pain. She is one that is pretty stoic. That’s what created the sense of urgency.”

James rushed Brandy to the emergency room at Vanderbilt, and then the unimaginable happened.

“I woke up. I can’t move my arms. I can’t move my legs. So, he’s freaking out. The doctors are panicking,” Brandy recalled.

“I’m holding her hand, and her hand is limp throughout the whole thing while she’s screaming in pain,” remembers James, “And all the test results are coming back negative.”

Ten days later, Brandy is able to move her arms again and wiggle her toes. She will now undergo intensive physical therapy, hoping to walk again.
