    Well had my 5 days of fun...sort of... meaning I got out of the house and said YES to doing a few things...

    Now symptoms have returned.......:mad: Curious to know if any of you other Rituxans ;) are experiencing hot flashes/sweating? I mean have to go take a shower ... BAD... Don't know if it is messing with my hormones...or if my immune system is BURNING something OUT...

    Neck/spine and muscles burning and still on 6 Norco a day... (hate that)

    So I am trying to stay positive cuz obvoiusly "something" is happening... I also feel very swollen...fluid retention?

    Are my symptoms just bein a "woman" or Rituxan related?? Hmmm

    Feeling less optimistic today...:ill:

    Hot flushes... maybe just a side effect of the drug.
