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 ...

Necrosis?

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. I was prescribed antibiotics and came to an open wound with dead skin in the middle. Yay! So now the dermatologist has been cutting the dead skin out every ...

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 ...

Betaseron Request

Dear Forum participants,

As my nickname indicates I am a friend of a person affected by MS. She lives in Cuba, and does not have access to internet. She was diagnosed with MS three years ago, and have been using Betaseson therapy since the beginning. The betaseron was subsidized by the Cuban Government since health care is free over there. However, the combination of a weak Cuban economy, the global economic crisis and political factors ...

Yowzas! This hurts

I did my first shot yesterday and it hurt so much more than I thought it would! I could feel the medicine under my skin...have you ever received a scrambled cell phone message where it sounds like a devil under water? If you could make that sound into a feeling, that's how it felt.

Any tips/tricks to make it not nurt so much or make the whole process less of a nuisance? I am going ...

Scared - any advice?

I am submitting my application tomorrow to start Betaseron. My doctor said I technically have CIS but since I am at such a high risk for developing MS, he really encourages my to begin therapy ASAP, as did the other neurologists I consulted with to confirm the test results.

I was stuck between Copaxone vs Betaseron and decided I'd rather try my luck with flu-like symptoms than risk permanent damage to my body w/ lipoatrophy. ...

What are the benefits of Betaseron?

From what I understand Betaseron and similar drugs are touted as reducing the number of relapses. Is that correct or can they slow disease progression as well?

I have never had relapses in my 15 years with MS so I never started taking any of those drugs.

Image

Results from the 16-year follow-up to the pivotal Betaferon® (interferon-beta-1b) trial, published today in the journal Neurology, provide the longest and most complete patient follow-up data and support the long-term safety profile of Betaferon in multiple sclerosis (MS).

Results demonstrated that no new or unexpected adverse events (AEs) emerged with long-term therapy, and the observed treatment-related AEs decreased over time.
