    Unhappy sore throat after Avonex injection?

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a sore throat as part of the dreaded side effects of Avonex.
    I've had this happen about 3-4 times the day after my shot and each time I thought I was coming down with something only to have it go away by the next day.

    Thanks!

    Hi Joyce,
    I don't know if it's just me or if everyone is this way, but I never get the exact same "symptoms" after each shot.
    Since I posted about the sore throats I haven't had one since. Sometimes, the day after is BAD and sometimes the symptoms come 2 days later. Sometimes I don't get any.
    My neuro said that headaches are a common side effect of Avonex and sometimes you can even get a rebound headache from taking too much pain medication.

    I'm so glad you are feeling good after your shot. I hope you continue to do well on it. Maybe you'll be one of those people who don't experience any side effects.

    Now if they could just invent a medication with NO side effects - that would be a miracle!

    Hope you are well.
    Jen
