If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I had a major improvement during the pregnancy. It seems that neurology's and gynaecologists works separately most of the time, while they should actually work together.

this topic made me think of a related chat we had back in '06.

here's me hypothesizing about d3 and pregnancy

and a great post by shayk on 1,25 d3 changes in third trimester
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

Bubba - I also disagree! I'm 30 weeks pregnant and may slap the next helthcare professional who assumes that my MS has vanished becasue I am pregnant! In fairness things are less bad than they were but far from perfect!

Loobie - you may want the lactating as breastfeeding is also good for MS!

Hi ,
I have mobility/ balance problems and something in my eye.
The prob in the eye stayed.
But for the balance problems , it disappeared as a miracle. It kept on improving till in the last trimester I walked like a regular person.
And while a year before the pregnancy I couldn't dance almost ,in the last trimester I danced 2 hours (which led to my contractions ... )
So the change was significant.

In the post from 2006 you discuss a lot about post pregnancy.
I didn't notice new attacks so far, but I did notice my walking/balance issues got back to the problematic status in no time. Meaning - there have to be something in the pregnancy (hormones ?) that change the existing lesions and existing situation . And not only prevented from new attacks to come.

In the beginning I thought my brain had time to create pathways in pregnancy but that wasn't the case cause previous situation came back after the delivery.

There are great ideas that were also raised here ( vit d , sex hormones, growth hormone, insulin ) but what disturbs me is that I can't find a neurologist who is really into it and who will do brainstorming with gynecologist.

And I think the pressure about it should come from us.
