YEARS before realizing my symptoms were MS, I slowly realized I was reacting to numerous foods,, grasses, molds, etc etc
Have been tested for allergies many times, took shots for a number of years (had to stay for extra 1/2 hr after each shot, would get such a reaction);
only when started eliminating the foods did I start to operate a bit better. My problem is I am allergic to MANY foods, not just the 5 usuals, so is extremely difficult to keep to the diet. But I am a million times better when off the offending foods. Foolishly, after a bit of feeling okay, I start feeling deprived, and start up with wheat, etc. ALWAYS a mistake.
Also need to take numerous supplements in order to feel really well, esp since am so very limited in foods can eat.
A rigid MS diet is very difficult at first--after about a month, when you do really start to feel the good effects, is easier to stay on. Temptations come at holidays, eating out with friends, mixing with new people for a meal, etc. I still give in sometimes (always to my body's regret), but try to eat before I go out, so can just get a salad or something I won't react to.
