    I recieved my Neurastin injection the day after my Chemo treatment and 2 days later had some minor flu like symptoms and bone pain in my hips and pelvic region for 3 days along with a chronic headache for 5 days. I used extra strength tylenol and only needed a narcotic to help me sleep one night. Over all it was very tolerable compared to wiping out the white cells. My follow up labs showed very f ...

I realize everyone's experience is different, and there are many folks who seem to be having bad experiences with Neulasta, but I can't help wondering if some of the bad effects described haven't been from ...

    I had one round of chemo w/o Neulasta, and my white cells were nearly wiped out. I had a fever and felt awful for three days. With my second round, I received Neulasta the day after the chemo. The next day, I felt like I had the flu - bone aches (mostly my hips and pelvis, but also neck and long bones), and very bad headache. What worries me now is the abdominal pain I have this morning. I had sto ... Show Full Comment

    I had my first Neulasta treatment one day after my first chemo cycle. Two days later I had pain in my neck and shoulders that lasted for about 2 days. I took Advil for the pain.
