S On Betaseron For 15 Years. Does Calcify Over Time

S On Betaseron For 15 Years. Does Calcify Over Time

What are your side effects from DMDs ? Mine was depression from Betaseron. Uncontolable crying but I wasn't sad. I was on Betaseron for 15 years. I developed calcified areas on my butt from injections. I hated injecting arms so my butt was favorite site. I had a calcified area size of an egg surgically removed 2 years ago. it was so uncomfortable , like sitting on a rock. Chronic inflammation does calcify over time. I did stop injections then and I've been happy ever after. :)

Yikes! I thought the welts from Copaxone were bad. Never heard of that. Glad your on a better page but do you mean no meds at all?
