It's been nearly 5 weeks since my first round of Rituximab infusions. I've been feeling ok joint wise, but having terrible fatigue. Doing all I can to listen to my body and combat that though.
Recently I've experienced a flare 'niggling' - if that makes sense to you. I'm getting indications that a flare is looming and trying to break free, but it's not affecting me terribly throughout the day like flares normally do to me. It's mostly morning stiffness in wrists, fingers, elbows and knees, and achy pain in knees and hips throughout the day.
Does this mean that my infusion isn't working? My second lot of infusions aren't until September and I'm not taking anything else. I guess what I'm asking is, have other people found that it's taken more than one round to put their flares to rest, or are my expectations too high this early?
