I hope you are all doing well. I’ve got a quick question and am hoping you can help me.
I was diagnosed with RRMS at the beginning of last year, and I have been on Tecfidera since June. It seemed to be working really well for me and once I got over the first few side affects, I was ok with it. But in December I had a relapse, the first one since the end of May. My MS Nurse believed this was brought on by an infection I had. Once my infection cleared up and my body started recovering from my relapse, I started to feel ok again. But last week I began getting new symptoms, and old ones returned. I thought this was because I had pushed myself with moving house and thought if I rested for a couple of days, these symptoms would disappear, but they haven’t. They have got worse. I spoke to my MS Nurse today and I’ve got an appointment with the relapse clinic on Wednesday, and she advised me that we will most likely have to discuss other treatment options, as she thinks Tecfidera is no longer effective.
So, my question is, what treatment would you recommend? Has anybody had a similar experience with Tecfidera and moved to a different treatment? If so, which have you decided to go with?
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me!!!
