I just had my first infusion 2 days ago. So far, so good. I had a very achy leg last night. I am unclear if that is due to the infusion or a painful lower back situation I have going in. I was really nervous about the infusion and it was very easy and uneventful. Just the way I was hoping it would be.

URI/Sinus Infection
| Lalaw
I was diagnosed with MS in Sept of 98 and began Copaxone therapy in April 99 after the birth of my son. I continued with this treatment for 13 years at which time my Neurologist suggested Tysabri to which
I started and was taking up until Dec 12, 2014. I got sick on Jan. 2nd 2015 with chills, fever, body aches what I took to be the flu. Since that date I have been on 4 antibiotics and have had continuing Upper Respiratory Infection, Sinus Infections. It is now May 16, 2015 and I still have not been able to return for my Tysabri Infusion due to recurring infections. I saw an allergist and am happy to say I have no allergies but somewhat disappointed. Not that I want allergies, just that I would love an explanation of what is going on with me? At least then I would know something. My dilemma the Allergist said if I could give you Steroids I would load you up and that would take care of this thing. But on Tysabri my understanding is no Steroids. So can any one tell me if they know since I've been off the Tysabri since Dec can you take steroids for infections.

I've been on Tysabri going on seven years and have used steroids for my (much milder) attacks during that period.

I consider Tysabri the only decent MS med out there (at least for me?.) Even though it can kill or leave us rutabagas, for me it staved off a fast decline with my disease outset eight years ago. Been on it almost seven years. However, it's over five hundred fifty people now who've gotten PML and the company is making it harder and harder to access the hard data, now only announcing the new cases quarterly.
