TYSABRI infusion #4...didn't go well today. Experienced an "anaphylactoid reaction"...broke out in hives and got "stupid" until I was drugged into a gorked stupor. Spent the entire afternoon sleeping off IV Benadryl and Solumedrol, but am home now (obviously!).
TYSABRI treatments are now "suspended" until Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named reaches the big wig drug representative to "talk amongst themselves" and wring their hands. Most likely, I will not be eligible for the drug for at least 3 more months, but possibly not at all.
I'm feeling ill from drugs, completely bummed out about the reaction, and back into worrying about my longevity...sorry if this post is not my "upbeat" sarcasm...I REALLY am worried now and anxiety trumps humor at this point.
Gonna go consult the Magic 8 Ball for answers...guess I'll just stick to "Yes/No" questions for now...
