Welcome to ThisIsMS Ttone35. Tecfidera has been reported to cause fairly intense gastric distress in some people. You may wish to read some of the posts in the Tecfidera forum that discuss ways to minimize the side effects.

Boa tarde queridos amigos. Morei muitos anos da Ucrânia em Portugal, e quando adoeci de esclerose múltipla, parti para a Ucrânia. Agora há uma guerra aqui e não sei como ir para Portugal e para quem. Não consigo trabalhar e ganhar em outra área também. Tenho esclerose múltipla e agora tenho o primeiro grupo. O que eu faço?

Hi Anne,
An MS diagnosis is a process of elimination. I would not assume that you have MS. There are several conditions that can produce MS like symptoms. One common MS mimic is a vitamin B12 deficiency. Have you had your B12 level checked? Note, a test for B12 usually includes folate, homocysteine and methylmalonic acid in addition to B12. What other tests have you had?
