I don't want to scare any of the newbies but i have to vent. I'm writing this with the Avonex flu. I didn't take last weeks shot due to surgery and had my shot tonight. I have been taking 800 mg. of ibuprofen 3x day since Tues. I took a dose at 3pm and then at 9 pm, and I have all the horrid side effects as usual. My head feels as if my skull is going to come apart, every joint that normally bothers me is screaming, I have ice water running through my veins, chills and a fever already of over 101. This has been going on for 13 months now.
I know I shouldn't give up but that is what I'm leaning towards. I don't want to try the Copaxone my neuro does not feel it will help me at this stage of MS. Also, I know i wouldn't take the shot every day.
Thanks for letting me vent.
