I've been copaxoned!

The copaxone training lady came to meet with me at work. I have now done my first injection and so far so good. I have a small red area on a wobbly bit and it seriously stung for a bit but now it just achey stings. I can live with this!

The side effects are ok and she said that she's had a lady do an entire pregnancy on it and had a healthy delivery! ...

Treatment 1: Solu-Medrol/methylprednisolone and side effects

After recently being diagnosed on 6/6 I've started a 5 day IV drip of Solu-Medrol(steroids) as a first step before I start a long term approach to attacking the diesase. I guess it's pretty standard stuff.

I had some questions about the experience of anyone that has gone through this treatment because I've been experiencing some side effects.

During the treatment I felt great. I even went for a couple runs for the first time ...

Question about eyesight

I have a question for those who read this post...

Last night I fell asleep in bed watching TV, after about and hour I woke up.... I was hot so I stood up to turn on the ceiling fan and noticed that I couldn't see right.

Weird visual symptom...

Had a really odd visual thing last night - went up to check on my son asleep and as I looked at his face in the near-darkness I could see his eyes, nose and mouth, but then all his features disappeared and I was looking at a blank face-shape. God MS is so horror-film-ish sometimes. Then as I kept looking his features reappeared, then disappeared etc. ...

Newly Diagnosed and Entering Campath Trial

Hello everyone. I am new here and I have been reading this forum since my diagnosis in April 2008. I had an incident in 2006 where my right forearm/hand went numb and I didn't have much muscle control. My neurologist could not find anything conclusive and decided we would monitor the hand. 2-3 weeks later I was back to normal and I never gave it another thought. In March 2008 I experienced numbness in my ...

Emotional shocks

What do you do when you're presented with a huge emotional shock? My girlfriend of three years, we were starting to talk about marriage, is leaving me. She's moving out and taking with her much of my emotional support/confidence with her. I'm already depressed as it is, MS related. but have put off seeing the doctor for it. I'm afraid if I go in now they will just cast it off as depression linked only ...

Emotional Issues, Is it MS caused?

I seemed to get very emotional, very easy. I mean before I was on Betaseron, and the Dx of MS I wasnt that emotional.
I cry very easy, I mean very easy I could be thinking about something sad, and tears come out. I get angried just as easy. I feel like Im a ping pong ball.
