Copaxone for 10+ years?

Looking for those that have taken Copaxone for 10+ years and am interested in side effects that you have experienced. I was diagnosed in 1999 and have been on Copaxone since then (minus being off to get pg and have 2 kiddos). I have been experiencing bone pain for about past 3 years and am trying to determine if this could be a side effect of the Copaxone that started after all this time.

Thank ...

New. MRI coming up. Am I on the right path?

Hi all, I'm a 31 year old mom and one of my boys has Autism. I mention this because there seems to be a link between moms with autoimmune issues and having children on the spectrum. I treat my son with diet and alternative treatments and he has reacted well to that.

I've been falling apart for years now. I admit that I am the worst at taking care of myself. Before going to my ...

The start of an adventure...

Hi There!

I am a 48 year-old male recently diagnosed (last Monday) with relapsing/remitting MS.

This comes after 3 years of confusion created by doctors in various countries (in the Middle East) without the necessary experience of MS to make the correct diagnosis. Now I am in New Zealand and it took only 2 months to get the answer I always suspected.

I experience substantial balance problems and have great numbness/lack of feeling in both ...

Bone pain with Copaxone?

I have been dealing with various bone pain in feet, hips and knees for about the last 3 years. Has anyone else experienced bone pain?

In a letter in the March 27 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Scottish researchers reported that they found an unexpectedly high number of cases of "thrombotic microangiopathy" in people taking Rebif who suddenly developed severe high blood pressure. The condition is ...

The Wheldon Protocol, Some Advice, Please...

Hello everyone,

My name is Craig and I am 39 years old. I was diagnosed with MS on my 30th birthday, even though they could trace it back to 1997.

After failed attempts on conventional treatments- the ineffective Rebif, to be precise- I started on LDN in 2009 with improved my symptoms immensely... at the beginning.

Last year, I stumbled upon the Wheldon Protocol- Sarah's story- and informed my GP I would like to try ...
