Well I had it. I was quite worried as I have heard there can be severe side effects. The only thing that happened to me was a bout of sweating. I got really hot, but they turned down the flow and that went away. Now I did have the test dose, with the benadryl and prednisone cocktail before, so I am sure that helped. It took 8 full hours to get the entire dose of Dextran. And I have to say I DON'T feel any better....When should I expect to feel results? (I got the infusion seven days ago)...I am actually feeling worse if that is even possible. My leg and arm weakness have increased, and so has the mental fog that I seem to live in. And a dent has not even been made in my addiction to chewing ice, and I still get extremely tired, and sleepy after eating! Anyone have any thoughts on this? Could it be that I was so low on Iron stores, that this one infusion did not make a difference? Or is it possible that I didn't absorb any of it?...(ferritin was a five at last bloodwork count)...Thank you for any info anyone can give me!
