Avonex pain

Anyone with painful side effects should try using Tylenol PM for the pain.
On my sixth inj of Avonex and after trying just about everything else I used Tylenol PM and it was wonderful. I got a good nights sleep and was a little tired the next day, but did not suffer. I will continue to do this for a while. :o Good Luck to all and my God Bless each and everyone of us.

Avonex not working?

Postby Alexandra » Mon Jan 17, 2011 8:38 am

Hi All,

I am on Avonex since mid March 2010 when I was diagnosed. I had 7 months of injections until a bad flu caused me serious allergic reactions and I had to discontinue Avonex. I stopped for 6 weeks when I regained my life: my energy level tripled and I was great for 6 weeks, until my vision decreased for the right eye. That was the moment when my neuro said enough is enough, and next week I restarted Avonex with increasing dosage plan (quarter, half, full). I am five weeks later since I restarted and I am having a serious atack of optical neuritis still on the right eye. Toghether with this, 2 weeks ago I started having the sensation of blocked ear (like when you are in airplane) and was extremelly dizzy. I saw a ENT doctor that gave me Betaserc that cleared my dizziness, but not the blocked ear sensation. I have two questions:
- is my attack a result of Axonex not working or discontinuing Axonex triggers a relapse or just hte fact that I stopped it, means there was no protection and a relapse is due to that?
- anyone had an ear attack that manifested with dizziness and blocked ear?
Thank you for taking the time to read this
