I am 54 and managed my eczema all my life. I have been on Dupixent for 4 months now. Reading reviews regarding blindness and other side effects really concerned me. Since I started, my joints and muscles always ache and I am always tired. I went from being very athletic and in the gym 6 days a week to 0. My skin is great, no rashes or itching all night. But I am now wondering if its worth my quality of life. I see an MD Natural Path who has helped me cut out certain foods and sugar which flare up eczema. Maybe natural in the better way to go. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?
I was just wondering tonight about muscle and joint pain that has suddenly increased. I'm doing yoga but it's only getting worse. I am writing this down for my doctor.

I have been on Dupixent for almost three months and I am wondering the same thing. Starting about 3 to 4 weeks ago I began to have a lot of muscle fatigue and achy joints all over my body. I was freaking out at first wondering what kind of cancer I had. Im sorry for your symptoms but glad Im not the only one. Has time or Dr. helped out any. Not sure what to do next.
