I’ve been on copaxone since October 2011.
I use the autoinjector seeing the neddle going into my skin did freek me out so now I only see the neddle as its being put into the sharps box.
If y oo u do get put onto copaxone you will get a started pack where younget everything you need, they even send a cool bag and rucksack which is hreat for going on holiday with, you will even get a mini sarps box for holidays it it holds two weeks worth of injections
It does at times sting for about 30 minutes, when that happens I get the Ice pack out of the freezer, then after 30 minutes I go to bed, my MS nurse told me to never to use an injection when I’m by myself just incase I get a reaction which has never happened fingers crossed.
I tend to do it in my things or in bottom of my belly, I feel I’m hellping to control my MS and not expecting anyone else to do it for me. It’s one thing I can do for myself,
I do get lumps where I inject but they do not hurt, I only have to make sure I dont inject into a lump or scar
Im still getting relapses but they are short to what they used to be, now days and not months like they used to be like.
