Tecfidera or Lemtrada? Your thoughts?

Hi all, I was diagnosed with RMMS November last year and have been asked to decide between Tecfidera or Lemtrada. I wondered if anyone has any experience with either DMT? I am particularly concerned about the short term and long term side effects of Lemtrada (thyroid and liver problems). Also, keen to hear your experience with Tecfidera and whether the flushing and stomach issues are bothersome or not and whether you experience any other symptoms. I live quite an active lifestyle and feel that Lemtrada may slow me down compared to Tecfidera. I've also heard that in Berkshire and London the waiting list for Lemtrada is quite long as it is a preferred DMT. Any thoughts? :) Thanks, Gursh
