Thank you for the Welcome and your experiences. I think it is just the unknown of the injections that has me a little freaked out but I do have a nurse coming to the house for training of the proper techniques, so that should help. I have a cousin who is also on daily copaxone, so she has offered to help me along if I get too nervous! :)
I do have other symptoms, the electric current feeling through my right arm. Prior to the last solumedrol infusion, I had what people tell me was the MS hug in my whole right arm and the reflexes were pretty poor, which is why the second MRI of the brain and neck were ordered. The pain in the right arm is now gone but the electric current sensation is still there. I can deal with that :) Some of the other symptoms are the extreme fatigue, that "drunk" walk and few other mild ones that I probably wouldn't even notice if it weren't for this dx.
It was a long 4 four months of tests, steriods, and more tests before I finally got the diagnosis but I think I'm handling it the best that I can. I just want to start the meds to stop the progression of my current symptoms and limit any future relapses. Don't worry, I expect to have relapses I just don't want any for a little while, if that makes sense :) I have been working full time (plus) since my first "episode" in March, which most people think that I'm crazy for doing so but it keeps me occupied. I've been told that I am handling this dx very well and what I keep telling people is that it could be so much worse and this is manageable, I just need to find what tools will help me best to manage.
Thanks for the reminder about the bone density. I will bring that up with my GP.
I'm sure I'll be around "venting" and asking questions as I start this journey.
