Second Infusion

Well it was only suppose to be 3 hours this time…..they said…….not gonna happen when you’re talking about my body and how it dislikes all medicine put in it.  I had a reaction, heavy chest, lump in throat, had to stop the medication,, give me benedryl in the iv, twice, then steroids, then restart at a very slow pace.  I got there at 9:45 and left at 4:00, there hours, it was a long three hours.

Feeling pretty crappy today, can’t talk, not sure what that’s about but it’s been happening more frequent than not, I’ve heard there are joints in the throat, maybe they are inflamed.

My blood work didn’t change from the first infusion of this drug, I go see my RA doc the end of October to see if it’s helping, not sure what he’ll do if it’s not.  I’m indifferent about it, I just have no confidence in the medication used for RA, I’ve found no relief what so ever.   We shall see…………..
