I hesitated taking medication for my MS symptoms. When the right side of my face went numb and the toes on my feet went numb, I decided it was time. I no longer have new symptoms but the numbness is still an issue.

It took me awhile to figure out that the stinging is mostly caused from the tiny air bubbles in the needle, once I figured that out it didn't sting as bad. Also this medication makes me tired all the time, even after getting a good night's sleep. That is one down fall that I don't like.

Comment:
I have terrible site reactions and knots (scar tissue?) where I have injected for years. My body rejects the syringe at times because of these knots, I am running out of locations to use. Here is a tip to keep bubbles out, after mixing hold the syringe at an angle rather than straight up and down and draw it in slowly.
