It took a week before I went to the clinic but they did not know what it was. So the next day I went to the ER and after 2 MRIs the doctor told me I had MS. I was told to inject myself once a week with Avonex. The side effects that came were worse than the numb legs. I had really bad migraines and vomiting. I would shake because I would get chills and then it would end with feeling hot all over. Also I have a hard time injecting my self because of the needle. Sometimes I stick it in 3 times. Right now I feel great. The tingly feeling went away a few days after leaving the hospital. I just want to go back to normal. I don't want to have to dread taking my shot every week because of what comes with it.
