I’m new to the group and wanted to say hi and ask some advice and wondered if anyone’s experienced the same?!
I’ve had MS for about 8yrs now, DMT didn’t really work for me the side effects were to bad for me when doing injections I was fortunate enough to offered Lemtrada and can honestly say it worked brilliantly for me and was the best decision I made, I’m lucky my MS is mild, I eat healthy and exercise regularly, since my Lemtrada I’ve had no new relapses which is amazing. I’ve also not been on any medication, my bloods are checked monthly, my lymphocytes have been low which I knew they would be as that was repairing, my thyroid has been good for the past 4/5yrs and I’ve never had problems with them. My bloods were checked January all fine, had the Astra Zeneca injection 8th February, bloods done on the 15th February my MS nurse rings me first thing in the morning of the 16th February to ask if I’m ok because my thyroid has gone “haywire” her words, today I’ve had a my 3monthly phone checkup and have been told there’s a problem with with TSH thyroid receptor. I know thyroid problems can be a side effect of Lemtrada, but I can stop thinking of the correlation/coincidence of bloods being fine for years and a week after the Covid injection there’s a problem. My MS nurse is very dismissive of the coincidence and I’ve got my 2nd injection this month and now I’m even more worried/dubious.
I was wondering if anyone else’s has had side effects since having the injection?
