... S. Nothing really hit me until I woke up to constant and consistent dizziness. I went to the dr and he said I'm developing a brain stem lesion. I've only been on Copaxon for a month and a half so it wasn't long enough to determine if it was working although I'm having a relapse. ... (7 replies)
... Hello Cheri. My name is Sherry also. I can relate to your story. I have all the symtoms you wrote about in your story except for optic nueritis. Instead, I have iritis. Last month I had a scare that I could have been developing O.N., but it was my irits flaring up, and my age (soon to be 43). I am sorry you havent been able to find a good neurologist yet.

... I, too had terrible reactions, such as you describe. 2 years later, I can still see where the last shots were given on my arm. I was taken off of it asap, it sounds like you should, as well. No one should have to tolerate that if there is another option. I am now on avonex and once I learned how to deal with the headaches, I won't fear the shot. Best of luck. PS a MS... (3 replies)
... Poor baby. I feel for you. You sound like you want this to work! I have to share my story with you...when I was first dx with MS, I choose Copaxone as well. I wound up in the hospital.
