First drug of choice once I was diagnosed. The burning after the injection was the worse but I was faithful. The injection site afterwards was like I was bitten by a wasp and just became really itchy. After a month I felt horrible.

The injection site issues are a big problem. The induration lasts for over a week at each site as does the redness, swelling, itching, etc. I'm also experiencing stiff neck, excessive fluid retention and general feeling of being unwell.

I was diagnosed September 1997. It took me years to finally accept the idea of shots. I started with Avonex. I could not continue with this treatment due to the side effects. I went without meds for a few years. Then I was put on Copaxone for awhile but the skin site reactions were too hard to deal with. Then I was switched to Rebif. I do not respond well to interferon. When a fellow cowo ... Show Full Comment
