My first tysabri infusion

No problems from the infusion. The infusion center is a converted home with leather reclining chairs and a big TV on the wall. The nurse didn't wear a smock or greens, just normal clothes. Maybe that's why I didn't have white coat syndrome; My pulse was 50 and BP was 100 over 62. She couldn't get a catheter into my right antecubital vein and blamed it on scar tissue; I've donated blood 3 or 4 times a year to the Red Cross for over 30 years. But she found a vein near my wrist. She said patients tell her the tysabri treatment is like a fog lifting from their minds. Personally, no sense of a fog lifting. Also no side effects like a rash or headache. So basically no problems from the infusion. The infusion started at 10 AM and I was back home by noon. Now, at 3PM still no reactions noted as I sit at work waiting for afternoon appointments to begin.
