I've also wondered if something else in sunlight might be responsible for inhibiting MS. Also when we get MS we become sensitive to heat so we don't go out in the sun as much and maybe that amplifies the problem.

ive spent so much time in the sun being in hawaii surfing, even after i got diagnosed '06, ive spent 24 hours (2daysx12 hours) one weekend a month in the sun, racing, with a fan spray bottle w/ ice water by my side. i did not lack any uv radiation and no sun block for me

Civickiller, that makes you an outlier! It sounds like fun too. :)

It's frustrating that the researchers make assumptions, like that it's vitamin D that is the sunshine benefit, if the UV radiation could also be what does it.

Great links.

thanks civickiller :)

One of the interesting things from the latest genetic studies is that some people with MS may have a genetic variation that causes them to be less able to utilize or create vitamin D from sunshine.

i guess i have one thing, vitamin d deficiency. i originally wouldnt have thought i would be with how much sun i got before.

homeopathic dr tested me, not my neurologist.

another funny thing, our states best ms neurologist was speaking to us about how vita b12 can help preserve cognition being the feather ruffler i am, raise my hand and say "are you guys only finding out about this now, my homeopathic dr had me on b12 for years already" she wasnt too happy and she was discouraging people from getting the ccsvi surgery, of course she was a neurologist
