Hi everyone - I'm new on here.
I was diagnosed with Limited Sys Sclerosis last year and have been taking Methotrexate and Hydroxychloroquine. Unfortunately this medication has not really helped. My consultant has now suggested an infusion of Rituximab. However, I was a bit put off when she mentioned that 1 in a million (yes I know that's rare) may get a condition which is easier to describe as mad cow disease. I was just wondering if anybody has had the Rituximab infusion, and what if any side effects they may have experienced?
