I started Copaxone on 12/16. I feel totally fine except for how much the shots sting. The injection itself is super easy, but the site reaction is a killer. Sometimes it's mildly annoying, but mostly it stings like waves of battery acid are being poured into my body for about a half hour. Not a constant pain, but real zingers of pain in that time frame, and I usually have a hive/welt the size of a silver dollar for at least and hour and sometimes all day. Icing first and after helps, but heat before and and ice after makes me bleed more, so I don't recommend that.
I noticed I am sleeping better which is a bonus as I'm an insomniac, and I noticed I have no numbness or tingling anymore (which might be why I'm sleeping better - the tingling can be distracting when you try to fall asleep). I can't say this is all attributable to Copaxone, but I noticed the numbness and tingling stopped altogether within a few days of me starting the drug. I still have wee waves o' vertigo from time to time, but even those seem milder (all of which could be Pollyana wishful thinking).
I have a follow-up with my neuro on 1/21 to discuss how I'm doing on the drug (I'd say two thumbs up, especially if the stinging lessens over time as my body adjusts). My dad's diabetic and has a few insulin shots every day, so once a day seems very doable by comparison and I'm feeling good. I'm going to ask my neuro about the Campath situation and if that's something available to me in my area...I will report back to the group if I get any helpful intel.
