I have had RRMS for about 4 years now and been on Tecfidera throughout. It has only been in the past couple of months that I have started itching and it is driving me insane! Its mainly at the back of my neck and my arms, in the bend of the elbow and I scratch until it is bright red! (I know I shouldn’t, but can’t help it!)
My husband says I scratch in my sleep too!
It happens a lot, but is more severe after a tablet. I am considering stopping taking them, but worried it will have a detriment on me!
I’ve called the MS nurse, but she just told me to eat when taking the tablet, which I already do, and to take an asprin. That was it, I felt like I was an inconvenience to her and she didn’t really have an answer to help!
I am prepared to try anything!
If anyone has any tips they would be greatly appreciated!
