There, she was given an intravenous (IV) treatment called calcium EDTA, a chemical salt which separates heavy metals from dyes.
It is used to treat lead poisoning and works by binding to metal ions and drawing them out.‘I just lay in bed on an IV for five months and had to have round-the-clock nursing care,’ says Gena.‘Chuck slept beside me on the couch and never left.
The agency said although there is currently ‘no evidence that gadolinium deposition in the brain has caused any harm to patients’, it was recommending restrictions to prevent any risks that could potentially be associated with it.
Linear agents — the type of injection Gena had — are used in the UK, according to the MHRA.For example, a 2014 study at the University of Teikyo in Japan found gadolinium deposits in the brains of patients given the same injections that Gena had.It was in spring 2013 that she became desperately ill after three gadolinium injections in eight days during investigations for rheumatoid arthritis.It’s known that linear agents are unsuitable for patients with chronic kidney disease, as they can cause serious side-effects such as scarring and thickening of the skin, joints and internal organs.However, a growing body of research suggests gadolinium can accumulate in the tissues, brain, bones and kidneys of healthy people, too.
She had tested positive for rheumatoid factor, sometimes a marker for the condition, and doctors were checking for signs of inflammation.‘Within hours after the first jab I felt like my whole body was on fire — as if acid had been passed through it,’ says Gena, who lives on a Texas ranch with Chuck, 77, and twins Dakota and Danilee, 16.‘The burning was isolated at first, but it just kept spreading.’In the space of a few weeks she was rushed to hospital six times with excruciating rib pain, breathing difficulties, full-body tremors, muscle weakness, and joint pain — but doctors were baffled.‘Before this, I was a vibrant person,’ says Gena.
