Copaxone Seeping

I started Copaxone a month ago. Occasionally I find that it seeps out after the injection. When that happens, the site bleeds more than normal. I haven't withdrawn the needle early and I always do a 90 degree angle so I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong.

Do you find that your thighs are the worst pain wise afterwards? Sometimes I still feel it the next day.

Coming off Copaxone for pregnancy, terrified.

Hi
I'm very stressed.
8O
I had 2 miscarriages in the last 2 year, and probably an early 3rd one too.
Each time I was on Copaxone until I got a positive test, then I gave it up.
Myself and my DH have been tested for EVERYTHING in the last 6 months, and they can find nothing up with either of us.
So all the miscarriages are ...

Angled injections or 90 degrees?

I have read on here about the importance of removing the needle carefully at 90 degrees to help prevent Copaxone site reactions. I've also read that injecting at an angle (normal practice with other type of sub-cue injections) helps as well.

Are these recommendations for the auto-inject, or for manual injections? Would someone please give me more specific information on this? I realize it's impossible to inject at an angle and remove at 90 degrees, ...

Location of injections

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone might have information or experiencing regarding the location of injections.

Initially, when I started my copaxone, I followed the regimen and rotated between the different sites as they recommended. Some of the locations really stung and it was irritating, so I've been injecting into my buttocks for the past month or so. I haven't had any problems with it. Does anyone know if that could impact the copaxone's ...

Copaxone Sucks

I was told to heat the area first and then use the cold compress. I've given Copaxone almost 4 months and my vote is... off with your head!!!

Do I NEED to be causing myself a bad case of lipo with caustic chemicals and tumor sized bruises? I mean if I had a grid and an idea of how this stuff burns the fat that's one thing... but it sounds like a bad lipo job ...

Swollen painful glands anyone?

I've recently had a couple bouts of swollen glands with accompying dull pain - usually on one side of my neck/jaw. I did a quick google search and found that this is one possible side effect of GA. Anyone else experience this? I'm quite certain that it's not an infection since I have no other side effects. I'm seriously considering cutting back to one shot of C every other day.

Temporary Stinging Negation - Massage

We have been on Copaxone for about 6 months. There is about 5 minutes of stinging that follows each injection. While we do clean the site with alcohol we fan it dry for more than a minute and it's not the cause of the stinging.

For Christmas we had massages.

Following the massage, NO STINGING for 2-weeks! Serioulsy. None! Now, we cannot afford to have 26 massages a year, but we tried it one more ...
