I have been injecting Avonex since 2011 and other than a few flue like systoms and the occational bad tuesday (I inject Monday) all has been good, in fact at my last MRI scan i had no more damage and what I have was dorment. However, last night when trying to inject it was so painful that I could not keep the needle in place for the 10 seconds, it was like injecting acid into my leg and today I am so sore that just touching the area sends me into pain that I can only assume is like being shot. I know I didnt get the full dose but more concerning is not knowing if this is a one off or the start of some kind of rejection or reaction to the medication.
I have called my MS nurse who is normally very good but she just pointed me in the direction of the Avonex help line who just pointed me back to my nurse???
Has anybody else had this with the Avonex pen?
Ps this was a pain to type, whats wrong with this site its so slow!!
