I have read many months in this forum, that gives me a lot of hope. About me: female, 31 years old, I started to have ongoing weird neurological symptoms in September/October/November 2006: tingeling and burning sensations in hands, legs and right side of the face, problems with balance, weakness in my left arm and leg, eye pain, weak voice, brain fog. I was lucky to find a nice neurologist right from the start. He ordered two MRIs the next four months, VEP and LP. VEP and LP were negative, but the MRI was not completely clean. Although there was no change between the two measures and no Gadolinium enhancement. My symptoms went away and I was left with a possible diagnosis of MS and the advice not to wait too long, should I consider to start a family. Also my neurologist could not tell me what kind of MS I might have, but he did not want to rule PPMS completely out. He wants to see me again at the end of the year. In February 07 I became pregnant but unfortunately the little "worm" inside me decided to leave. I lost it in the 7th week.
I don't take any medication. But I started the Swank diet in April along with several supplements and try to have at least one hour of fresh air and sun a day. Well, the sun is a bit a problem here in Switzerland...
I calmed my life and avoid negative stress. Currently I feel again some weakness in my left arm and legs, as well as light vertigo and tremor, but I hesitate to call it an exacerbation. Now my problem is, I do not know where to continue with my life!
My partner and I decided to start again with familyplans in october or november (I must say, I absolutely do not want a spring-child after what I read about birthmonths an MS). On the other hand this ABX-therapy sound so promising, that I would like to start right now, knowing, that I should avoid getting pregnant for at least one year. But what after that year? Is it possible to stop and restart the therapy after pregnagy and nursing and do you think it is better to first start the family and after that put myself on a constant ABX-therapy? I know that nobody can decide for me but I am just curiouse to know what the ABX-profis think in my case.
