New Betaseron User

I was diagnosed with MS May 13, 2011 and started Betaseron treatment on Monday June 27, 2011.

The BetaNurse was amazing and made the whole process simple. I used the Betaject device for my first shot on my upper right arm and it worked just fine. Tonight is shot #2 and I plan to try a manual injection in the right thigh.

I didn't not experience any obvious side effects. The injection site was slightly ...

Study revisits 1st clinical trial to treat MS decades later


Tracking down nearly all 372 multiple sclerosis patients involved in a pivotal clinical trial of a drug decades ago has allowed a group of researchers from several institutions, led by professors at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the University of Chicago, to a surprising discovery.

The clinical trial, conducted in the late 1980s, involved the biotech drug interferon beta-1b – an injectable protein that in 1993 became the first pharmaceutical approved ...

Post-injection pain?

I am still working my way through all my injection sites, and the last 8 of 10 injections have caused what feels like my muscle to be very sore at the injection site. It starts about 6 hours or so after the shot - i wake up in the night to find it hurts pretty bad. It has lasted anywhere from 24 hours to 5 days.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so found ...

I've been on Betaseron for over a year now with no issues till recently.
About 4 months ago I injected into my muscle when I was really tired. I had a lump for a month and thought it would go away. Then it started really hurting.

It's not so bad

I wanted to post this in case any one starting on Betaseron or considering it needs some positivity...especially after seeing my "Scared" and "Yowza!" posts. :D

Everyone's experience is different but mine so far, is that it's really not so bad! The first shot hurt like a mother and the side effects where present, though tolerable. I've only done 4 shots so far but for it ...
