I just started copaxone 40mg (3 a week) injections on the 9th of april. First injection was measured wrong by my nurse and I ended up stabbing myself in the stomach muscle. It was extremely painful. I lowered the setting to a 7 and my injections have continued to be so painful I can’t move for an hour. My legs were so bad and left a huge thick welt that lasted for a day. Arm had shooting pains down ribs and into arm pit with a mild welt. Hip is painful but seems to have the smallest welt reaction. All in all, every location I shot was so painful I can’t even move for an hour. Last injection (back in the stomach again but on a 7 instead of a 9) was still so painful it brought me to tears. My nurse said “stinging and burning” is normal but this is nothing like that. I told two nurses about the pain reactions but they said just try a different setting. Is this normal and will it get better?
