Not sure what to think or do here. Just Monday of last week I had my 6 week visit with my rheumy and I thanked him and everyone else in there for helping me to feel so wonderful. Nothing hurt, I was walking, I felt great. He even said that I can extend the rituxan until things come back instead of getting it every 4 months. I was soooo excited. Then something happened. Over the last two days I have been utterly exhausted (burnt out) or drained and my joint pain is starting to come back. It hasn't even been 4 months since my last infusion. What do I do. This is a real let down. I have had bad days but usually it goes away this doesn't feel like it is going away... Do I try to wait this out or do I go ahead and set up an appointment for the next infusion in March?
Help, I'm hurting.... again
