every other day

I've been on the eod plan for ten months now with no relapses. I went this route due to swollen lymph nodes.

The past few months I've increased to both weekend days and eod mid-week.

Sometimes this disease just makes me wonder that when the time is right it will just rear its ugly head just as it hides in the darkness no matter what we do to prevent it.

My neurologist wants me to start using Copaxone which I was already terrified about but then seeing comments about it lowering blood pressure worries me because my blood pressure is already ridiculously low. Will it lower my blood pressure?

Should I stop taking copaxone -shots were exposed to +86f?

Any advice for me? I'm traveling abroad for 3 weeks and a few days ago noticed that my copaxone shots were in a bag that had become very warm after being left in the truck for 10-15 mins.

Any thoughts?

(I've been on copaxone for ...
