Question about treatment

I’ve just been reading some of the comments about injections. And I am in tears. Are injections the only way to manage this? I wont be seeing my neurologist for a few weeks, so am stuck for advice… Are injections the only way? And how did you all cope at the beginning with them?

Hi, I’m sure there will be more paople along on here to help you out, but what I understand is that it all depends on what type of ms you’ve got.
In a lot of cases where its RRMS you might be able to take some oral meds like steroids or things to help with fatigue. Don’t panic about the possibility of injections – if ou’ve got an MS nurse where you are he/she will be able to advice you more accurately and will give you support. I’m not at injection stage and was diagnosed in late 2004 so injections, if they’re going to be necessary at all, may be a long time off yet.

Hi have just read your comment Lu, and can only say I have been having injections for 2 years. I Hi I am on Rebif and use an auto injector(sorry dont know exact name for it).This is not too bad at all& not like the usual way for injections you may be thinking of. Im the worlds biggest baby but its really all over in seconds. Getting someone else to do it helps even more. Get lots of advise but dont worry about the injections you get used to them!
