I had no expectations after my first Tysabri Infusion. I was feeling pretty good going in so I couldn’t imagine feeling better. I do feel better. I no longer have my daily MS reminder…..tingling. I think almost every week and sometimes for days on end my feet would tingle, my hands and arms would tingle and even my face would go numb and tingle. I haven’t felt any of that in over two weeks. My mind is also clearer. I feel like I am accomplishing things more efficiently. I guess I can’t know for sure that these are benefits of Tysabri but I think it seems very likely.
I am over my sugar shakes as I have had eleven days of clean eating. I have been to my workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at 5am and love it. I work hard and feel great when the workout is over! On my off days I am doing some sort of cardio – either walking, hiking or cycling trying to burn a minimum of 500 calories at each workout. I haven’t noticed any big changes in the way my clothes fit but I know the day is coming.
My next Tysabri infusion is a week from tomorrow. I can’t wait for my three month MRI to see some disappearing lesions.
