Has anyone else experienced side effects from Nucala?

Hi everyone. After having to jump through so many hoops, i finally became eligible for Nucala. Ive just had my 4th injection and I'm having terrible problems with side effects.... Ive also developed Shingles.... My backaches are crippling,,, my headaches are crippling (Im also a migraine sufferer) I ache in every joint.. These have been building with each injection.. BUT for 3 weeks or of the 4 im breathing better... I would love to hear how other people are going on Nucula!! Thanks guys Dawn

  2. Hi Leon, thanks for that, i did direct a comment to a lady then went what i thought was a question page to ask that question.
    Yes side effects are harsh but im thinking because i was getting shingles, they were so much worse last month.
    Ive had my fourth injection,,, side effects yes but not as bad thank goodness..
    Im breathing better on it though which is good.

    1. Hi again, skyserene (Dawn), and thanks for updating us. So glad to hear the side effects have lessened somewhat following the fourth injection. Please keep us posted as you progress through this treatment process. Warmly, Leon (site moderator)

  3. I had mostly fatigue, headaches and some flu like symptoms.
