It continues to amaze me how the people who prescribe Copaxone don't caution their patients about Lipoatrohphy which is the "lumps and bumps" of the skin that can happen often when injecting this drug.
The University of Ottawa MS Clinic studied several hundred Copaxone users and discovered that about 45% of them end up with this condition. It can be minor or in several instances major whereby these disfiguring bumps never go away. The study stated that this was far too high a number of people to be getting this side effect and that certainly more attention should be paid to it.
I'd be knocking on my doc's door and suggesting some action be taken. I've also read on the net that Copaxone users don't get much reaction when calling Teva about this problem.
Best of luck.
