A board to discuss the Multiple Sclerosis modifying drug Copaxone


Postby jana » Tue Mar 13, 2007 12:02 pm

Hello, 14 days ago I had terrible reaction on copaxone. Vomiting, problems with breath and so on...

From the time I have during a day problems with terrible burning and tingleing (in my head especially, than my shoulder and chest) and with feeling of lack of air in my lungs, I am afrai of swooning but it never happens). Does anybody know this? Is it from MS, or from Copaxone? My doctor doesn´t know and I´am very nervous from it. Pleas write.

Thanks Jana

Hi Jana,

I have also had many experiences with the bad Copaxone reaction (shortness of breath, flushed face, chest pain) as often as 2-3 times per month. Sometimes after I had a reaction like this my chest would be sore for days. I use to get this reaction the most often when I injected Copaxone in the back of my arms so I don't inject in my arms anymore. I am sorry that you are having problems.

I wold try Lyrica if I were you to stop the burning... that's nerve pain and could help if you ever have that problem. some I think is Copaxone and some is MS.
