Coughing side effect?

Hey All,

I started on Gilenya back in November last year. It has been great, no complaints. However in the past few weeks I've picked up this cough that I cannot kick. One of the side effects of this is apparently a cough. Does anyone here have experience with this at all? Is it common? Thanks.

Anyone on this?

Hey all, the topics here are at best almost a year old, does anyone here have any more recent experiences with it? I have been on rebif for 10 years or so and am tired of the grind, I've stuck with it for so long because it's worked well. Which is another reason plegridy is interesting to me. So any...

thinking of quitting Rebif, what to try next?

Hello Everyone, I have been on Rebif for approx 10 years or so. I have been on .22 mcg only, my liver couldn't handle the .44 apparently. But it has been mostly side affect free and really working well as no real attacks since I started taking it. However lately (in the past couple months) I have be...

Re: sudden side affects

Update for anyone who runs into this down the line. My following shot I experience the same symptoms. The next morning I called MS lifelines to ask about this. They thought it was also strange as Ive been on Rebif since sometime in 2005. I asked if this could be a bad lot of the drug, they said it i...

sudden side affects

Hello All, I have been a rebif user for many years now, gotta be 5+. Anywho I am only on the .22mcgs due to elevated liver enzymes when i was on the .44. So I have been on this stuff for ever, and rarely have any side affects. However last night after my injection, I inject around 8 pm or so, I star...

Re: Another rebif injection site question

Hey - Been on Rebif myself for a long time now. I know I had the same question as you. There are some good posts in here: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/post68440.html#p68440 I find it easiest to inject into my stomach, I've done 4 in a row all in my stomach, just moving a few inches each time, with ...

Re: Emotionally Dealing with Rebif

I was diagnosed three days after Christmas 2011, so everything is still quite fresh for me. I dread the Rebif (44 mcg) shots not so much because they are painful but because I almost always experience an anxiety attack following them, sometimes waking up in the middle of the night in a panic. After...

new side effect - head rush feeling?....

Hey Everyone - So I have been on rebif for, man, like 4 or 5 years now it must be. I am only on the .22 dose, .44 was killing my liver. So on the .22 I have pretty much no side effects. However recently I started to notice something new. Not sure if it is an MS thing, or a drug thing. When I have my...

Kind of late to the topic, but I just wanted to let you know it is possible to meet the right person, even with MS. I had my first issues in high school with MS. I started dating my now wife, freshman year of college, she kind of knew I had some medical issues going into it. I wasn't officially diag...

Damn EMG I hope you are okay, haven't responded to this yet.... But you should not freak out about it. I had the same issues with my eyes when I that same age. I am 25 now and unless I told you, you wouldn't even know I have MS. It affects everyone differently, so don't go thinking worst case scenar...

I did the arthritis hand test deal as described above, no pain doing that. Of course the pain has gone away now, I guess I am going to assume it is just an MS thing, and now my right foot is feeling funny, damn this, haha thanks everyone.

Hand pain?

Hi everyone - I tried searching this topic but nothing relevant came up. Just in the past few days, my right hand (dominate hand), has experienced some pain. It isn't constant pain, but more when I use the hand, like to squeeze the saline bottle when putting my contacts in, or when im twising the to...

Alright thats good news, I was just double checking. there is no reason I cant move over say 3 inches and use my stomach again, I was not aware a move that slight is all you needed. I thought I needed to move to a different part of the body. This makes it much easier then, I hate having/needing help...
