This is my first ever post to an MS Forum. I was diagnosed late last year… Still a bit traumatised!
I want to post a little thing about my experience of taking Tecfidera (which I have been taking for about four months). The first two months were horrific. I suffered terrible stomach pain, nausea to the point of being sick a couple of times a day, migraine like headaches, generally I felt awful. I was also feeling pretty depressed because I’d looked forward to taking this drug for months.
Then one day I woke up and… I felt fine! Out of the blue I was OK.
Having spent two months searching the internet for tips on how to cope with the side effects or news of miraculous recoveries (which I didn’t find) I felt I must write about my experience in the hope that it helps someone (I was almost ready to give up).
I have since been told that in my bloods, my lymphocytes (prior to my recovery) were very very low. They have since returned to be within the normal range (my neuro was quite interested in this as my story of recovery was corroborated by this news)
Hope this maybe helps someone!
