I haven't been on here for a while. I've been diagnosed since 2006 and until a few months ago I was injecting Betaferon but due to lipoatrphy (the loss of the fat layer under the skin) I've had to stop. I am due to start on Avonex tomorrow and I'm feeling really anxious about it - I've got the new Avonex pen and I'm a bit scared that I will find the injections painful. I also used to get flu like side effects, which were really bad, after Betaferon on occassions and as Avonex is a similar drug I'm worried about this too.
Does anyone on here have an experience of Avonex they wish to share with me?
