Hi anyone out there.
I started Copaxone last week and was warned it would typically hurt like a bee sting. More like a swarm of hornets, last night I injected into my tummy and I felt like I’d been stabbed between the ribs, I did inject into the stomach as directed, nowhere near my ribs but it seemed the pain spread upwards, I could not move for about 3 hours, such excruciating pain ! The day before I injected in to my thigh and now have a nice itchy lumpy bruise. I’m using the autoinjector, have had it set to 12, am reducing to 10 tonight in hope that it will make a difference. I have tried calling Neurodirect (This is the MS nurse department in my hospital) but a voice message tells me they are closed so I don’t really know who else I should ask. Could anyone share with me their experiences of early use of Copaxone, I’m praying it starts to get better. Sorry if you think I’m being a wuss.
