I had a bad attack last night. I did my shot about 10:30, laid down. Within a minute or two, I became very flushed feeling and had a weird tingling feeling all over my body. I couldn't catch my breathe, panic came over me, I was burning up, my heart was racing. I thought I was going to die. I tried to sit on the sofa and got nausiated. I ran to the bathroom and started throwing up. I was able to get back in the bed about 15 minutes later, then I was freezing. I had chills so bad I was shaking uncontrollably and my teeth were chattering. It was like have a full body tremor. It took an hour for me to warm up enough to stop shaking. I was up at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 this morning, throwing up each time.
I slept from 3:30 to 7:30 and was left with pain in the right side of my neck and a terrible headache on the entire right side of my head. Very weak today. I called Shared Solutions and they told me it sounded like the post injection reaction and to not do any more shots until I saw my neurologist.
I've been on copaxone since September 2009 and had never had any problems with the shots, except for the lumps at the injection sites.
Can anyone relate???
