Hi everyone,
   Just checking in to let you all know how my second Tysabri infusion went. Well, everything was smooth sailing. No reactions except a nagging headache. I am so relieved. I made sure i drank alot of water the day before since last time they couldn't find a vein and had to pick me 3 times. It worked obviously, cuz they found one, no sweat, first try! Yeah!
Well, i hope everyone is having a good day! Just wanted to keep you updated.
Love
Lynn

Hey all,
thanks for the support. I am so thankful for everyone of you.
Photogirl, to answer your question. I dont know if it is all in my head but it seems as tho the numbness in my feel is not as severe as it used to be. Also my finger tips too. Other than that no changes. Spasticity let up for the most part since my first infusion. How about you? The 4th one? Wow. How is it going. I know, i cant wait to go again too, lol.
Thanks again all
Love
Lynn

Hi Lynn,

Thats great that you think your numbness is subsiding! This infusion was 3 weeks late for me, so I really got to see the difference again in my symptoms. I felt awful the day before my infusion, major fatigue, leg weakness and spasticity in my legs. Today is the day after my infusion and the pain is better, I have energy back and I can think clearly again! It's a very noticeable difference for me. I've had two delayed infusions so I've sure seen the difference in how I feel when I get to have it compared to how I felt when it has "worn off".

I LOVE it. :)
