I hope this is also an MS support group for people using copaxone. Does everyone feel like a pin cushion the way I do?

Oh lord! I took copaxon for one year and cried for 1 year! It looked like I had been beat up wherever I took the shot. I was devistated I was going to have to take this shot every day for the rest of my life... Until I was told about Avonex shots which are once a week versus every day. #1. They do not hurt. "Thank God".#2. Once a week. I simply asked my doctor if he would give me Avonex instead of CoPaxon, and he did! Best thing I ever did. I didnt know if I was going to last much longer on CoPaxon and thank the Lord I have Avonex! Please ask your Neurologist! You will not regret it! GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND!
