allergy to copaxone?

I started taking copaxone about a month ago-- only ever had immediate site reactions. Yesterday however when I injected in my arm, I got red splotches on my upper arm around the injection site-- not itchy or uncomfortable but there. Today I injected in my other arm-- splotches again (but smaller and less red) in that arm as well as in the upper arm on the other side and a few on my chest as ...

Can anyone please tell me a good site for progressive ms (I'm having trouble finding any real specific information about that type), and if anyone here has that I have a couple questions. thanks

I wonder if that may be the kind he has, because he has been sick since June, and really hasn't let up at all, and it does seem like he is getting worse kindof... he seems more tired, even though now ...

No new lesions relative to prior examination

I had an MRI recently and the out come is... "The brain demonstrates area of FLAIR hyperintensity in the deep and subcortical white matter. There are no new lesions relative to previous examination."

History: ...

I need to Vent -- Off subject

Ok, I need to vent a little. I just read this article:

My comment is... How can these people be so narrow sighted? I say How dare them have the nerve to publicly come out and express their anger that some more body parts have been discovered. Do they think that they are the only people in NYC or America? Do they realize that there are people dying from lung disorders because they helped ...

Wavy Lines In Vision


I have a question for you. I was making lunch today and noticed a squiggly wavy line on the side of my field of vision that was kind of shimmery. Then it spread to both my eyes on the same side of my vision field. It got a little bit bigger and then stopped and went away.
The whole think lasted probably about ten minutes. It was enough to freak me out. Has anyone ...

Herx reactions

I am pursuing the idea of antibiotic therapy.

I was diagnosed with MS in 1997, and then had a positive Lyme Disease test a couple of years ago, through Igenex Labs. (Was negative with the usual tests prior to that.)

I have taken antibiotics for infections in the past and never noticed anything I thought was a Herx reaction. Some would say that means I don't have any kind of pathogen causing my MS and/or ...
