MS meds and Kidney damage? Correlation?

I’ve noticed since taking Tecfidera these past few months,in addition to mood changes,it seems my kidneys are very,very sore to the point of bothering me when I’m walking around in stores… I have not had this before so I’m wondering if it correlates with the meds.

@jessieb , Tecfidera isn’t know to affect one’s kidneys, but it’s best to get this checked out with your Doctor.

Tecfidera can lower your white blood count, which leaves you susceptible to infections. So it’s worthwhile to eliminate the usual suspects, e.g. a UTI.

Again not known to cause kidney damage but you should get checked out IMMEDIATLY!

Any pain around the kidney area should be taken seriously.
I’d say the GP should def take a urine test and kidney function blood test.
