I did a review last year after my first transfusion -- ok except a day later I was knocked for a loop that lasted about 48 hours.

I was well hydrated before and during the first 12 hrs. I was not presented with any of t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've noticed swelling of my tongue, chest pain with frequent irregular heart palpitations, jaw pain, numbness, pain and tingling in the arms. My doctor did not recognize these symptoms as possible side effects. I did my own research, and found that I may be having side effects. I took the reclast due to esophagus problems with Fosomax. It's been almost a year, but symptoms seem to be getti ... Show Full Comment
