Looking as to why & if Tysabri is causing issues there...
From this study (4 months ago):
I have been hospitalized with bilateral PE. I did have a flu shot this year and shortly after had SOB. I have a suspicion of Myathenia Gravis confirmed by physical exam of a doctor but don't know lab results yet. Could the MG be causing the PEs...I've never had DVT but did have high platlet count in 2007 cause a mini stroke. now take medication to control platelets.
