I was recently diagnosed about 7 months ago and have been on Copaxone for 6. In the last 2 weeks (both thigh injections) I have experienced IPIR twice. The IPIR experience was the scariest thing of my life. The first time I called 911 I was so scared and both my doctor and paramedics summed it up to a panic attack. I was recently made aware of IPIR through a MS support group on FB. After doing some research I learned that only 10% of copaxone users have this reaction. For those of you that have had it more than once I have a couple of questions:
1. Did your IPIR occur with the same site (mine has only happened with thigh injections)
2. Did your IPIR start with one site and then started happening with other sites?
3. With numerous IPIRs did you switch medication? How many did you have before you were advised to switch?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
