I’ve been on Avonex since July 2012 and had a relapse in November 2012. Now I’ve developed new symptoms, heaviness and numbness in my left limbs which I’ve never had before, it’s always been the right side. The pins and needles are a lot worse as well, all my limbs and my nether regions!
I spoke to my MS nurse and she’s trying to get me an urgent appointment. I’ve got an appointment with her next week anyway and she said she’ll do a blood test to see if I’ve developed antibodies to Avonex. I’m really hoping I haven’t as the Avonex suits me as I work full time and couldn’t cope with side effects for more than once a week.
Has this happened to anyone else? If I have developed antibodies, what would the next move be?
