I get almost immediate reactions to the Rebif injection. It feels like electrical current. Now I've noticed that where I get the feelings depends upon where I injected. Buttocks means legs, now abdomen means face, arms and hands. Am I crazy or does anyone else get some reaction?

I've been on rebif since january and i cant say that i have had that happen. The only thing with me is when i inject on my affected side i get a spasm Its like my leg jerks really bad when the medicine goes in. It bothers me really bad. I try to avoid the left leg. MS life lines said you dont have to inject in every site allowed so i avoid it. I hope it settles for you. How long have you been on it? Maybe its a reaction that will settle after a while? I rarely get side effects anymore thank goodness. Good Luck.
