Copaxone and headaches

Hi All

I have recently started on copaxone x3 a week after being diagnosed last year. It’s only been my first week of taking it. This morning I woke up with a bad headache. I have been reading that this is a common side effect and those that take this medication are more likely to experience headaches. .

So far the injections have been fine, I use the auto-injector which is easier, though I notice that I am bruising very easily. It initially stings and causes pain which I’m able to tolerate. Those that manually inject? Do you still bruise?

I wanted to know if anybody else taking Copaxone experiences headaches? and how often do you experience them and what is their intensity?

thanks,

Lab
