Postby Meegs » Mon Apr 13, 2009 5:22 pm

so i'm post-infusion 5 days... and felt headache/nauseous on the weekend... fine yesterday, then at work today had a MASSIVE headache hit me and was dizzy on the way home.

In your experience... how long do these side fx last?

I've been noticing that I have a "bad day" about two to three days after infusion. Lots of dizziness and headache. However, it is usually gone after that day. I haven't had enough infusions to really call this a pattern, but it just feels like that's what's going on anecdotally.

I had the one bad day of nausea about the 4th day. It lasted all day and at the end of the day i gave up my supper, which I never do. I just remember the lady I met telling to stay very hydrated. She was nauseated for 4 days before she figured out she was dehydrated.

So - water, water, water!!!! :roll:
