I mentioned in another post that I took my first dose of sprycel last night at about 6:30PM
I woke up at 1:30AM feeling really cold, so I rolled closer to my wife and then began to feel weird. Was it a panic attack coming? Then I started shaking really violently as though I was nervous...which happens only at my max (like when I went to the ER for my first a-fib attack). But mentally I didn't feel that nervous.
My shaking got really strong and woke up my wife. We thought maybe I was really cold. Then I hopped on here and saw Pat (hannibellemo) mention an episode of shaking and then nausea/vomiting the first dose, then settling down. I thought "huh! That's odd." A few minutes later an amazingly strong and quick wave of nausea came upon me, my wife brought è a trash can, and I had some strong dry heaves. Then, just like Pat, things started to settle down and I stopped shaking within a minute.
So, anyone else have that happen when starting sprycel? Hoping it's just a one-time deal... I couldn't fall asleep till 4:30am because of some adrenaline that built up, so I'm taking the day off (good thing it's going to be a beautiful day). But I can't do that every day.
