(The Hill)   Acute flaccid myelitis is thrusting its way through the population. Well, it's trying, but... well, you know it had a tough day and it's tired and it skipped lunch and probably just needs some space right now   ( thehill.com) divider line

Good piece.  Informative, doesn't sensationalize.

What was that weird-ass disease from a couple of years ago with babies being born with tiny heads?

Subby is an unfunny dickhead.  And probably chronically flaccid.

You have to pinch the head really hard to get it going. I mean REALLY hard.

Calling it "acute" is emasculating.  Of course they're flaccid.

Does it have to do with any Anti-Vaxxers?  Cause that was a problem in MN

I think the prevailing thought is it's not the infection but rather an auto immune reaction after an infection.  Much like rheumatic fever might happen after an untreated strep throat.

I had a girl with this and we threw some high ass dose steroids at it and crossed our fingers. No idea if it helps from a scientific point of view but when you see these kids no one is comfortable doing nothing.

-No. You know it won't fit over the iron lung.

I slay me!

I'm going to use their same evidential standard (none) and blame this on the farking anti-vaxxers.
