After crying and begin my Rheumy for two years!
A few months ago I had quite a severe flare and was put forward for a Rituximab infusion.
The first infusion went perfectly fine however two weeks later was a different story.
There I was ready with my blanket, pillow ipad snacks for a long day of sitting and sleeping and not even 15 minutes into the infusion I started to have pains in my back. I waited awhile before alerting the nurse in case it was simply due to how I had the chair positioned.
Then suddenly the pain multiplied by 100!
And I was in hysterics crying and screaming
It was decided that the best thing was to disconnect me from the machine and take me into a room to lie down, and I just about made it there before I threw up everywhere, by then I was burning up and sweating buckets.
Eventually, they were able to calm me down and I was able to lie down on the bed.
The pain in my back slowly subsided and all of a sudden in was freezing and had to be covered with more blankets.
After an hour I was given the ok to go home
Has this happened to anyone else?
