    Solumedrol for hand numbness

    Hello everyone,

    I have been on Tysabri for 3 years and have new hand numbness and tingling. My doctor had pml eliminated at this point so she has prescribed a 3 day course of solumedrol. When asking my infusion center if they administered solumedrol they said we were not to receive steroids while on Tysabri. I cannot find anything about them together. The infusion center did start my steroids today. I just want to know if you did steroids while on Tysabri what should I be aware of or aside from increased infection risk.

    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain! Diagnosed '99. And still learning about this disease!

    I had to postpone my infusion once because of solumedrol. I had to push it back a few weeks. Likewise, when on Prednisone for upper respiratory infection. Since steroids affect the immune system as well, it opens the door for other illness/infection. That is the risk.
