I am brand new to the forums and just started Copaxone a few weeks ago.
I have had great luck with the shots, with very little injection-site problems.
My one problem was that a few nights ago I awoke shivering uncontrollably. I had a fever of 100F and kept that fever for about 36 hours. Tylenol got the shivering to stop but I have been fever-achy (with a strong headache) for several days now.
A quick Google search showed that this has been seen on several Copaxone users and I was wondering how often any of you have had this problem. My Neurologist confirmed that this is a rare side-effect of Copaxone.
I am scheduled to return to work next week and am feeling 100% but if this fever comes back it's gonna knock me out for a few days at a time and I am worried about losing more time at work.
I am very happy to have a resource like this to speak with folks about MS. Thanks so much to everyone for participating.
