Just seeking a bit of advice; started Tecfidera yesterday, on a 120mg dose, but about an hour after taking it, I keep getting crippling, white hot stomach pains, that make me literally curl up in a ball on the floor until they’re gone. I’m getting no other side effect apart from a slight flushing at the same time. I know that gastrointestinal issues are common, but I’m only getting this stomach pain; no nausea or gut issues.
Essentially, I’m wondering if anyone has any tips to manage this? I know side effects should settle down in time, but at this morning I got really lightheaded from the pain, and I’m hoping that there might be some wonderful over the counter cure for it?! I’m already taking it with a good meal with proteins and fats, and have aspirin to help with the flushing.
