I have just come back from seeing my MS nurse after a bad reaction after last nights copaxone injection! I am doing my next one with her, at hospital on Wednesday and we have talked about it in depth today but I just want to know if any of you have experienced similar?
Immediately after injecting I got really hot and my head neck and arms were really itchy. I was bright red and developed a rash, similar to heat rash on my upper arms. Heart raced a bit and I remained calm…this lasted around 30-40 mins. After that I had full body shakes for around an hour (the same as I used to have when on Rebif)
I have been on copaxone for 8 years and have never had this reaction before! I am aware that people can have flushing, palpitations and chest pain as a side effect but the itching and rash were more like an alergic reaction? And, nurse said today that the shakes is not usual on copaxone?
Thanks in advance for any comments
