Thank you for your reply.
I did start with a 5g dose. My understanding was that this was a test dose as I started with home infusion. I had a significant headache during and afterwards. I have been struggling with my health and trying to start a new job, I think the majority of my headaches are stress related. I was then to try 30g weekly. I had such a hard time with the 5g – combined with trying to stay employed – that my Neuro suggested 10g a week. I don’t know whats going on at this point. I am wiped out – I mean wiped out for 3-5 days after a 10g infusion. I have a very high tolerance for pain, have gone years with this pain with no meds, but this fatigue scared me. I am grasping to being an employed father and just scared to lose that grasp.
