i should be soon on Tysabri, i am aware of the risk and seconday effects(headache,...) of it.
MS Society of Canada also says that the infusion is painful in itself:
"A person getting an intravenous infusion will probably feel a sharp pain or some discomfort when the needle penetrates the skin and vein, but then the discomfort should subside as the infusion proceeds. There may also be discomfort when the infusion needle is removed and the site may or may not feel sore for a day or so."

Could any of you under tysabri tell me whether infusion is really painful?
My Solumedrol infusions have never been painful, i don't even feel the neeedle when it penetrates my vein(nurses always tell me that my veins are wonderful), that's why i don't understand why it should be different with tysa.
Thanks for explaining this.
