Progress Update: Autoject Was Acting Weird Today

ms multiple sclerosis autoject mistake copaxone

This morning I had an odd experience with my autoject. Has this ever happened to you? My daily injection routine started out like any other day, heated the injection site for 5 minutes and sterilized with alcohol. Then I inserted my needle into the autoject, adjusted the depth, removed the cap, pressed the button, felt the slight prick of the needle and then…. And then not much happened… Usually at this point I can hear the click, click, click, of the autoject administering my medication but today it was more like “click………….click………….click”.  I am used to everything going as planned when it comes to my injections, I have never had an issue before, so when something was going different I didn’t exactly realize something was going wrong, I just knew something was slightly different.

This doctor was no different than any other doctor I have seen so far… His final evaluation? My symptoms are all more then likely permanent and no treatment is going to make the symptoms subside. I basically need to come to terms with my disease and accept that this is my life and that I have to live with these symptoms.

Progress Update: Nausea, Tender Skin, and Still Aching

multiple sclerosis ms nausea

I really don’t know what’s going on… I have tried doing a bit of research with almost no luck. I am still aching from head to toe and my skin is still really tender to the touch. It’s like a combination of flu-like body aches and growing pains plus I have been really nautilus for that last few days as well! it’s just miserable! It’s so hard to get anything done because I just feel disgusting which is why I have not been on top of my blog… I have kind of just been laying around all day lately… By the way, for anyone dealing with nausea, peppermint helps really well, I don’t have the real stuff, but it seems that even peppermint gum
