Campath and Allergies

Hello, thank you all for replying.
K6isten, you have a great story as well. I will be doing a full Allergy test in about one month and will let you know the results. Right now I am so inflamed that everything would come back positive.

What exactly is four days of HiCy like??

Hey all

Question for people who have undergone the treatment - what exactly are those four days like? I am interested to know. I have gained a bit of an idea from threads here on this forum but it's still a bit of a mystery to me. Is it unpleasant? Does the time fly by on account of the drugs? Do the anti emetics work well?

Home Sick

Well I am sitting at home sick with some kind of funk that is going around. I need to be working very badly since the 31st of Oct is my last day of work.

3 months after campath

I just completed my visit for my 3 month check up. Blood counts continue to increase and hopefuly will be back to pre-campath levels in a few more months. My energy level is increasing and I am having fewer days each week where I just want to get home to relax/sleep. I hope all of the other campather's out there are doing well.

Avonex and Valtrex


I'm new to your forum. I was diagnosed with MS 14 years ago and my symptoms were double vision, loss of control of left leg and extreme fatigue. Originally I was treated with Prednisolone to get back on an even keel but clearly it was not a long term solution. Over the next 2 years I became substantially more fatigued and developed severe cognitive problems as well. It was not a pleasant time. Being ...
