My symptoms temporarily flared about a month and a half before my full dose which my nurse could happen because the medication is starting to wear off. I had my full dose and back to feeling my normal self. I hope it all goes well!

@dinnerlady Have your symptoms recently worsened? Or did they start to worsen ever since your half doses? It’s not uncommon for them to worsen when coming up on your next infusion. Some people occasionally will experience a worsening of symptoms however after starting. Have you had an MRI done to see if there is disease progression? Also, the doctor said it could take up to two years before improvements are seen. In another group I’m part of some people didn’t see improvements until they started their full doses.
