I’m new to this site so hello to everyone.
I was diagnosed in July this year and my first DMT Copaxone. I had been taking it for 3 months and experienced no real problems bar a bit of irritation around the injection sites.
Recently I’ve had to come off it as it’s suspected of causing arthritis type symptoms (painful swelling of hands, feet, arms and legs).
Has anybody else experienced these side effects? It got so bad at one point that I couldn’t move my fingers.
I’ve been told by my GP that there’s no physical damage so should make a full recovery now that I’ve stopped taking it, but it’s been 4 weeks now and still can’t hold a pen to write. If anyone has gone through this how long does it take to leave your system or has it done permanent damage?
