Injecting in the arm

I was just wondering, for people who inject in the upper arm, does it hurt? I have been thinking of doing this but am a bit worried of it hurting? ( After almost 4years, I still cannot do it myself)

I'm starting to notice very slight scarring on my thighs so was abit worried of permanently damaging/scarring muscle tissue.

Thank you

Hi all,

If so, have any ideas controlling/getting rid of it? (this maybe a stupid question :oops: ). I have read that this is a side effect of Avonex but have not read about anyone else having them.

This is a great way to get the word out about any alternative therapies that any of you have used that you have felt have been beneficial to you. ...

Stem Cell Research Is Growing Again

Scientists in stem cell breakthough

That second one is about part-human, part-animal hybrid stem cells. I am thinking maybe they can turn people with MS into mice so they can benefit from all the drug trials we hear about.

First extension dose today

Well it finally happened. I got my first shots today and pretty much only have one thing to report. I did have a slight shot site reaction. No band-aid ring like Tim. The nurse had to circle "reactive" on the chart they fill out when they check after 5 minutes. It was very slight and it also itched slightly for about a half hour. By the time the hours was up, it was back to ...

Molecular pathway to disease identified

This article reveals a molecular pathway which can be involved with disease development and which can, in a striking parallel with all the possible triggers for MS, be activated by a wide range of environmental factors.
I'm not sure about such sweeping statements as, " Th 17 cell activity is the cause of… multiple sclerosis", but then I suppose that's journalists for you:
