I'm a 45 y/o female. In March, I had a bout with optic neuritis. I went from 20/20 vision to 20/70 in a matter of days. Brain and spine scans confirmed lesions in both. Fast forward to last week, the neurologist prescribed Copaxone, after a second MRI and continuing neuro symptoms since that first bout. The good news is that my vision is back to normal! I've also had 3 courses of Solumedrol since March, with the most recent being last week.
I'll be starting the 20mg Copaxone probably later this week, or whenever it is delivered and I'm trained on how to give myself the injections. I'm getting nervous about the daily injections and the side effects but I'm also looking forward to start feeling like a human again. Does any one have any advice or insights on what I should expect over the next couple of weeks, as I get in the routine of the injections or what I can expect and not expect with this medication?
