New to injections and bit freaked out!

Hi All,
I was diagnosed with MS in Aug this year and am now on my first week of injections with Copaxone. It's been a bit of a whirlwind from diagnosis to this point and am feeling a bit scared and alone with this whole injecting thing. When I inject I get a stinging sensation afterwards... this I can cope with but it's much worse on my arms and bottom. Really painful, has anyone else ...

I am a new member of this forum. As such, I am very interested in stimulating conversation about the many natural approaches to treating MS. Since I am on quite a few supplements and continue to read about others, I would like to start with my experience with Gaba.

After refusing to take any "drugs" for pain and spasms, my partner and I decided that lack of sleep was causing even more problems. Thus I ...

compound based on resveratrol in trials

Interesting stuff about a compound being tested for type 1 diabetes based on resveratrol, found most notably in red wine. If you think insulin might be related to diseases other than diabetes (anyone? anyone?), then this looks promising.
