    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Good grief! Side fx haven't been unbearable but this morning fatigue, achiness, & getting winded so easily is NUTS! It seems that about lunchtime, I often get feeling a little better and get about 3 good hrs, then it's downhill until next morning. Sleep at night but very little rest...

    I'm so sorry you are experiencing this! Have you had similar side effects before? Are there any medications to help you get some rest? (Lack of sleep makes everything worse...)

    I'm just 4 wks into tx. I have some Lunesta which can help sleep but not so much on the whole rest issue. Thanks.

    CALL YOUR TX MD AND GET SOMETHING TO HELP YOU WITH ALL SIDES.....GOOD SLEEP IS SO VERY VERY IMPORTANT ON TX....YOUR BODY NEEDS TO REST AND REST WELL....WHEN WERE YOUR LAST LABS? GETTING WINDED IS GOOD SIGN THAT YOUR HEMOGLOBIN IS GOING DOWN?

    Thanks Tiff. I am having weekly CBCs until I see doc on 5/11, keeping watch on hemoglobin, platelets, wbc mainly. So far, they are all a little low but still above the 'do something' line. I just got labs drawn today - my Wednesday routine. I will let my doc know about side fx. Thanks!
