I started Copaxone about 6 weeks ago and for the first three weeks I was fine. Then the lumps, the bumps, the redness, the itching...I can't stand it. I told my neurologist and he said that it's normal. The lumps last a long time and I can't even give it to myself in the arms anymore because of the swelling. And then the itching, I feel like I have mosquito bites all over my body. Does anyone else have it this bad? I think the Copaxone is great I feel fine but every morning at 7 I look at my body and say "where am I going to mutilate myself today" I hate it. another question: I don't know what drugs you inject once a week but a friend knows someone who has MS and takes a weekly injection and then is horribly sick the whole next day, is this normal too? Does anyone have any advice on how to get some relief from these annoying injection sites? I sometimes have to put itch spray on my sites before going to bed so I don't scratch all night. It's horrible having to go to work and walk around scratching my butt...lol... thanks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
