Reason: Multiple Sclerosis Date: 1 June 2009
Side Effects
- very bad pain in the injection leg (trouble walking, numbness, spasms, stabbing/shooting pain) - headaches - trouble sleeping the night of the injection - trouble breathing the next morning (20-30 min. right after waking up)

Additional Thoughts
- When taking advil 30 minutes before or right after the injection, it helps reduce the pain a lot. - Let it sit for about an hour rather than a half hour before injecting yourself (when the liquid is cold, it can feel quite uncomfortable)
