Rebif-Sinus Headache

I thought I was experiencing a migraine headache with the Rebif, but now I feel it is a sinus headache, because it is all in my eyes, and around them.

Has anyone else on Rebif experienced sinus headaches on Rebif?

Is this an allergy to Rebif?

TIA

It is often difficult to distinguish what symptom imitates from what
Hope that helps

I'm not on Rebif, so I can't help there. But I noticed that you've been going through the ringer with starting the med, so I just wanted to say I'm sorry and I hope you feel better soon!

Hugs,
Jane

I've never been on Rebif, but I was one of the "lucky" 4% who got migraines from Copaxone.  Are you suffering any other issues such as allergies or hayfever?  I'm not sure if Rebif has a nurses hotline, but it might be worth a call to them or your Dr. to see if it's a possible reaction.

Good luck!

Hi, Chris.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I have to wear sunglasses to look at my Laptop monitor.

I was actually allergic to Copaxone.

Yes, Rebif has nurses, on-call, but I called my MS Specialist's office a few days ago, and my Specialist wants me to take Advil, and the 300 mg. of UltramER that I hae been on for years, and see if the headaches ease off.

Said to call back on Monday, if I am not feeling better.

No, I don't have hayfever of other allergies. The headache seems to respond better to Advil Liqui Gels for migraine, than to a sinus decongestant.

Thank you for replying.

I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner. The laptop monitor hurts my eyes.

Right now, I am taking Advil for Migraines, and I have to take it 4 times a day, to keep the headache from becoming blinding.

So far today, I haven't had to take it...but I inject on Mon. Wed. and Fri., so I'll see what happens after tonights injection.
