Wyatt McGlaun, a teen from the Woodlands, says he was was diagnosed with rare disorder called Guillan-Barre syndrome after his first COVID-19 vaccine shot.

The Mayo Clinic describes Guillan-Barre syndrome as:

A rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body.

McGlaun told KPRC in Houston he felt he was doing the right thing getting the vaccine. He wanted to travel for the summer and hang out with friends and family. However, a week after his first dose, McGlaun said he felt extremely tired and had difficulty walking. His family admitted him to a local hospital, where he was diagnosed with the disorder.

Dr. Charles Sims, an infectious disease doctor from St. Luke's Hospital in the Woodlands, said Guillan-Barre syndrome is more often caused by a viral or bacterial infection, and he can't say it was caused by McGlaun's COVID vaccine shot.

Dr. Sims also say the disorder isn't common, only being seen in one to two people per million per year. He went on to say McGlaun's condition could be a coincidence.

McGlaun's family say they are going to report his possible side effects to the CDC to have it investigated.
