Bad reaction to vaccination

My Border Collie puppy had his 1st vaccination for distemper almost 3 weeks ago with a modified live vaccine. One week later, he couldn't walk and when I brought him to the animal hospital he was diagnosed with vaccine induced polyarthritis. He was on I.V overnight, and given pain meds, steroids, and antibiotics for a week.
He seemed to recover and yesterday his problems started all over again.
He is unable to walk due to the pain and inflammation in his joints. I carry him out to go to the bathroom and he just falls over. My vet says he has never seen this severe of a reaction before. I would like to know if anyone out there has heard of this before. I am taking him to the vet again tomorrow to see what can be done.
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.
