My MS nurse told me to leave the bubble in (AVONEX) Making sure it was behind the serum, to finish it off. Of course Avonex goes into the muscle. AND I was to ADD the bubble back in when I was on the 1/2 dose and wasted the meds onto a papertowel. She felt the Avonex needed the airbubble behind it t...

Hi ALL..my drug school went well. The Nurse was very nice. We played with the 1.5 in needles and decided my fat layer on my legs was not a real problem, and she gave me a bunch of smaller 1 in needles. I guess you need the long needles to get well into the muscle. I had a very very physically active...

Hello Phillip. I saw your website and found everything interesting.

The person you are caregiver for must be proud that you care enough to do all this research.

What lead you to do all this research and start this website?

It must have been very time consuming.

PEACE

I also plan on doing the shot as soon as I hit the door after work on friday, vegging on the sofa until 9 pm and going to bed directly. My doctor...

Hello all on the board. I am a newbie, female age 50 dx 4/04 RRMS symptoms beginning 07/02. Would not jump on the MS bandwagon, so denied. Would not even consider a serious problem until I needed neck surgery and the MRI showed spots on the spine. After a wonderful surgery had the *pleasure* of anot...
