Avonex-Help and advice

Hey guys, I got the call today to say I have an appointment this Friday to start with my treatment. I am going to be using Avonex, this is my first experience with treatment for my MS. Was wondering how those of you using it found it in the beginning? How were the flu like symptoms, did they persist? Does your medication effect your decision/how often/easy it is to travel? Are there any pointers to know about? Anyone experience the more serious side effects? I know my doctor can tell me all of this stuff but sometimes it helps hearing from others in the same situation. Also I live in Italy now and am not fluent in Italian so the language barrier can make me nervous sometimes! Thanks for and help/advice you can give. Nikki x
