Twice a week Avonex?


My doc put me on Avonex shots twice a week, and since then I go for 12+ months without any relapses. Right now I'm on 14 months without a relapse.

New to the forum--Hi!!


I have not been diagnosed with MS yet though my Neurologist suspects that I have it. I don't know if any of you have these symptoms because they don't quite fit the symptoms lists I see so I am a little confused.
