Splitting pain when injecting

Hi, I have looked in other threads but can't find a conclusive answer so please forgive a probably previously covered thread.

I've been on Rebif since 2005. The day after I had my routine blood work done at the beginning of December, I got a call from my Dr.'s office.

Emotionally Dealing with Rebif

Hi,
So I have been on the Rebif for about 4 months now... side effect wise it seems to be going well. Usually I get a headache the next morning which goes away with a couple Advil, and occassionally a slight fever in the afternoon. Definitely workable, not as unpleasant as to be honest I was expecting when I started the Rebif (though getting onto it was HELL).

My problem I'd like to address here ...
