Hello everyone, brand new to this site and pretty much brand new to the diagnosis. I have relapsing remitting with no real symptoms until the diagnosis so was an incredible shock. However, in the past year and a half I’ve gone from a perfectly healthy 21 y/o to someone who’s ill constantly from the Tecfidera and it’s many side effects… At first the diagnosis didn’t really change anything for me because I had no symptoms to worry about so almost didn’t really believe I had this thing for the first 9 months, to then start talking about being medicated on the back of a new MRI result. This has meant that from the end of June this year I have been constantly sick and being given other medications to stop that and then keep getting ill from the damage to the immune system making this a very sudden and scary realisation that this is my life now.. I keep having the internal debate in my head on whether keeping going with this medication is worth it for the long run in the hope that my MS doesn’t get worse or sack it in and go back to my past normality of just hoping it won’t get worse and enjoy the time now without being ill all the time?? Very rambly for a first ever post I know but would appreciate any advice on this one!
