Thanks for posting here - I know you have helped me a stack in the past with my Avonex side-effects. You are absolutley right, I take 400mg ibuprofen before my shot, then (funnily enough!) just take 200mg, 6hrly for 24hrs afterwards! I will bump my post-shot dose up and see if it helps - it is better since I stopped the combination meds, switched to the dose I mix myself, and started shooting up earlier - all your tips! I kind of thought that this was as good as it would get (being laid-up for 24 hrs instead of 48hrs), but my biggest problem is the increase in spasticity and muscle spasms, and the exhaustion/headache/feverish feeling. So I will definitely try changing my ibuprofen dosage, and will even talk to my neuro about bumping up my baclofen just on Sundays - might help the spasms, do you think? I sure hope it gets to the point where it is an annoyance, like with you - so I have something to aspire to!
Thanks again for your care and concern for a fellow Avonexer - your are always so on the ball with this.
If you are a fellow 'foodie', please chip in with some ideas - as I was saying on the other thread, I am so bored with cooking right now and need some inspiration - another person's routine supper can become my next experiment. Tried Shannon's idea last night, and I can say that the sauce works very well with both prawns and mussels - absolutely gorgeous.
Some more ideas folks, please....
I will also look & post.
