I just got my first injection of Neulasta yesterday, I however, woke up with shakieness, like my insides were a nervous wreck. I haven't had the bone pain, but I sure that is next. It really knocked me on my rear. I did great with the first round of chemo until this. Has anyone every had that feeling, at all with this drug?
