I'm seriously considering cutting back to one shot of C every other day.
This is amazing. I have noticed fro the last couple of years swollen glands, at first they were not bothersome, but now they are.
Not a bad pain, just a pain to let me know hay I am here pay attention to me.
I have been to my GP, Neuro, dentist and ears nose and throat spec. None of them told me that it could be casued from copaxone. I have been on copaxone since 2005-January.
I went off of it to try Avonex and thats a whole different story, it did not do good for me, am allergic to it. So back on Copaxone, this time the right gland began to give me the blues real bad.
I get a dull pain, then a stabbing pain, then an ache. Well thinking that maybe I was getting sick I kept taking my temp just in case. No temp, actually its rather steady 97.8 to 98.6. So no fever so really no infection.
Well a couple of weeks ago went ot a new Dr. he put me on a strong antibiotic. No real change. Maybe a tiny tiny big of the swelling went down.
I put warm packs on it at night and thats when it is the worst. Done also some research into it and came up with GA and swollen glands. so now I have something else to take to the Dr.
I also sat down and typed in all the side effects to all the drugs that I am on and checked off the ones that i have. Man I have more side effect symptoms then I have symtopns to MS.
Amazing, wht to do now? I have no idea which way I want to go at this point. All I know is I am sick of the crud.
