Just wanted to check in with you all. I completed my first injection of Avonex yesterday with the nurse. I have to sy i think the anxiety of the whole thing was worse than the actual shot.
It will take some time to get used to the preperation of needle, otherwise, the shot itself seemed to be a breeze for me.
The nurse spoke with my doc and he is titrating (sp) my doses, so I had my mini dose yesterday and will work my way up. I took all your advise and seemed to get through side effects fine. I was a little tired afterwards, but I wonder if that was just from the whole process. I am off today so I will just chill out anyway.
I felt a little warm but nothing significant. My leg was a little sore from injection but that went away quckly. All in all, I say it was a success. Thanks everyone for your support and guidance!
