Been on rebif for about 6 months. neurodoc switched me from copaxon due to no change. the rebif worked well but am now having some problems finding an injection site that doesn't hurt. any other users out there having this problem, and what did you do?

also on ivig drip 2days/month. had problems with that too, as veins are giving out. just had "port" inserted thurs. of last week, but still somewhat sore. just wondering about experiences of others with ports.

yes, still sore with vegetable-peeler like feelings on both thighs. as always, i hate ms!

Hey Linda!

I'm sorry, i can't offer any input on this, but wanted to let u know i hope u begin to feel better and can get past this. I know this must be really difficult. I'm sure others will be along soon to offer input, but just wanted to say hang in there and know we're right here with u.

Hi Linda,
I was on Rebif for 4 months and had to switch to avonex because of the injection pain.  I can offer no solution to that, I tried everything!  My spots from the injections didn't fade for about 3 months after I quit taking the rebif.  The Avonex doesn't burn like the rebif.
I'm sorry, I hope you have some relief.  Take care.
