Hope someone out there can offer some advice because i am feeling absolutely awful.
Was diagnosed with RRMS in July 2014. My MS specialist gave me a choice of DMD’s that were available to mean and told me to go home read up on them and decide which if any i wanted to try.
Decided on Tecfidera but was told it hadn’t yet been approved by NICE but that it was highly likely that it would get the green light and should then be available for prescribing from November onwards.
Finally got confirmation that i was on the waiting list in December. Received my first prescription at beginning of January.
Am now on second week of the double dosage. Had some stomach pains and nausea on day 3 and 4 of first week of single dosage. Again had some nausea and stomach pain in first week of double dosage. Am now on week 2 of double dosage and been feeling really ill for past 2 days. Was sent home from work with agonising stomach pains, back pain and nausea on Friday. By Friday evening was feeling so ill didn’t know what to do with myself. Spent all day Saturday led down still feeling rotten.
Am now seriously questioning whether this new wonder drug is doing me more harm than good.
