Hello, I hope someone will be able to help. I have recently (last 2 months) been diagnosed with MS and have been put on Avonex. Actually I chose it because I tend to forget things and thought that taking the meds once per week would reduce the chances of forgetting a dose.
I seem to be having an exacerbation of symptoms a few days following taking the meds. These differ from week to week. I have had muscle spasms, Saint vitus dance (had Rheumatic fever), balance problems, a strange sensation akin to the reaction one has having bitten into a very sour lime, resulting in what I call a brain spasm and then a series of yawning follow. These symptoms usually last a few days and then I am back to ‘normal’. In reality I get about a day free of these troubling symptoms.
Has anyone had these symptoms or similar when on this medication? Would appreciate responses.
