Hi Zohra...i think your pain is from Nupogen....

Ask your DR what you can take to get comfortable

I think Sheila is right that the pain is from the Nupogen - it stimulates the bone marrow to make more white blood cells and this causes bone pain. I took one 24-hour Claritin every day for the first week after I had my chemo - ask your nurse or doctor about it - it helped me a lot.

The Claritin was amazing. I had neupogen every two weeks for my AC txs and never had any residual pain because I took one 24 hour claritin beginning the day of the shot and then for about three days afterward.
