Thyroid pre-MS and Campath

Happy New Year All,

I was wondering whether anyone here has had an underactive/overactive thyroid independent of their MS and still pursued treatment via Lemtrada - how have your experiences been?

I have Hashimoto's (underactive thyroid) and am worried about completely screwing up my thyroid / or thyroid cancer with this treatment course. I am curious to hear about your experiences.

Thanks!

Cassidy

Infusion related side effects/allergic reactions.

I finished my first lot of infusions Friday, today is Monday morning.

I am feeling pretty shite. I am tiered, itching, stinging, blotchy (comes and goes), feeling old ms symptoms. I know it is early days, and I think this is expected side effects, but I don't know.
