I was diagnosed June 2007 and started treatment in August. I was having muscule spasms and vision problems. The only bummer about Copaxone is injecting everyday but to slow down the effects of MS, I will do anything! October of 2007 the muscle spasms disappeared, everything was great until May 2008 when I started to experience new symptoms leading up to my first full blown relapse. New MRI show ...

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.

When a fellow cowo ... Show Full Comment

I was diagnosed with MS in October of 2007 and didn't start injections until June 2008. I had a really hard time starting the injections. I received the autoject and couldn't bring myself to use it. Once I started the injections on myself, manually, I found that they weren't so bad. I do experience bad injection site pain, including a hard lump, for up to 5 hours. These lumps usua ...

I can honestly say that the drug has helped me in so many ways. At some point before I began Copaxone therapy, I couldn't feel my feet, my hands and joints were in constant pain, my skin was numb all the way up to below my ribcage, and even though weight loss was not listed as a symptom of MS, I think because of the fatigue I was having that is associated with it may have been making me so tir ...
