    Anemia (low red blood cell counts)

    Side Effects

    Dr. gave me an Aranesp shot for my swelling ring finger and numbness. Shot definitely helped. Unsure how often I will need this. I currently have a bad sore throat and flu symptoms. - I have script for Magic Mouthwash- definitely helped. I'll see how the next few days go. If this is it, I am lucky.
