Fungus and nails hand and foot

Has anyone in this group had to deal with fungus fingernail and toenail? After being on Copaxone for almost 3 years all the sudden a fungus outbreak has occurred starting on big toenail. I do workout but have only used the shower at the gym 3 times, months ago. Do you think we who have MS and are medicated are more susceptible to foreign invaders such as fungus infections? I have been using tea tree ...

THEORETICAL: Can Copaxone cause relapses

Can taking Copaxone actually cause your body to start attacking one's own myelin ONCE you stop injecting copaxone ?

I keep reading about all these "success stories" where people who stopped Copaxone experienced relapses shortly afterwards.

The conclusion these people reach - Copaxone must have been working for them when they were on it.

What if the Copaxone activated the body's immune response and was actually causing these relapses once treatment stopped?

Thoughts? Crazy talk? ...

Copaxone and high blood pressure

Has anyone found that Copaxone has increased their blood pressure over time? I don't mean just after the injection but rather over months or years. I have been on Copaxone for 12 years. I have seen a steady increase in my blood pressure over that time. I have tried to figure out its cause. I am on very few other meds, none of which I believe is the culprit. In addition, I have lost about ...

just curious

for those on Copaxone, why do you take it and why does your neuro prescribe it? I'm not trying to be negative here. But this is a drug that leaves bruises, requires a daily shot, (ouch), and as far as we know from the research, does a whole lot of nothing. The FDA clearly states in the prescribing guidelines (heck it's even on the wikipedia page), that this drug does NOT delay disability. Sooooo, why ...

First injection (manually) ever all by myself. Yeah i did i!

The nurse came over yesterday afternoon and i injected manually in my arm with the left hand (I'm right handed). Yeah i did it! I was very very very nervous but glad that first one is over with. It's definitely overwhelming because how do you know exactly where to put it and what the heck you are doing, depth, pinch, let go, ugh there's a lot to remember. Can you do the shot and not ...
