My nurse did tell me that I’ll be looking at having flu like symptoms for a couple of months when starting on rebif but I didn’t quite expect how bad it would be.
I’ve been on it for about a month now and I try to take it in the evening around 6/7, always with paracetamol/ibuprofen but I wake up at night with a splitting headache, bad chills and bad body aches. It’s starting to get to a point where I’m dreading the injection days as I end up in fits of tears for at least an hour trying to cope through it.
site reactions have been big 2p size red marks no matter what I do and I think I may have hit a capillary/vain the other night as I’ve come out in a big dark bruise and it’s made it painful to walk!
is it too early to throw in the towel? I’m finding it hard with a full time job getting up at 6 in a Morning feeling hungover and stiff
