First time poster here. I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in 2018 and developed TED by mid 2018. I had radiation therapy as well as steroid infusions, both of which helped the TED symptoms but did not permanently fix anything.
My ophthalmologist recommended I consider the 8 infusion course of Tepezza, which was cleared by the FDA in, I believe, early 2020.
After researching as much as I could, I decided to proceed with the treatment.
The infusions were unremarkable and I tolerated them well. My glucose did spike a bit, but it was transitory. I may have had a bit of hair loss, but, again, nothing terrible.
What did start to happen shortly after beginning the Tepezza were severe leg cramps at night as well as cramps in my right hand. This has persisted to this day, much less severe than when it first started, but painful and worrisome nevertheless.
I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced these cramps post-Tepezza, and what you may have learned about it.
