Anyone use very small gauge needles?


I've been on Avonex now for 4 months and I'm still having difficulty with injection discomfort. I know try icing the spot down until it feels numb before the injection and I get the shot at room temp. My Avonex prescription comes with the standard 23 gauge/ 1 and 1/4'' needle. When I go for my next neuro visit I'm going to request a prescription for the 1'' needle but I don't know what ...

Anyone in extension study feel like crap after vaccine?

It's been a little over a week since I got my first vaccine and I feel like complete crapola. I'm not fever, sore throat, aches, pains, etc. Just extremely tired, no energy either mentally or physically, afraid to venture too far from the homestead.

re: article High Time for HiCy?

This is a quote from the article

"He had to be candid with Lovelace: “This treatment may kill you faster than your disease.” Despite the great risks involved—Lovelace would be gravely vulnerable to infections for weeks"

This treatment MAY kill you faster than your disease?

Doesn't sound like it's very safe, even according to the doctors at JH. I am confused why so many people are willing to risk their lives.
