Advice & Tips:
After I started taking this drug, I actually regained some function. I have been able to work myself back upto running 10k's. It has been a blessing.
For more than a year, the day after the infussion was a great MS day. It was when I would feel my best. By the end of the cycle, I felt the withdrawl. Years later, the energy no longer really noticably spikes or dips.
For the last few months, I have had increasing pains in my lower arms to my fingers with most recent pains in my fingers. Odd. Looking at list of possible side effects, I see joint pain listed. I can't say with any certainty the Tysabri causes the joint pain. It is but a guess...still, it is a concern I have that years of use may have a cumulative effect.
