Sad to hear about your wife's death. Please elaborate the positive aspects of Prokarin on your wife's health wrt to MS and whether MS was the ultimate cause of her death or not. Sorry for taking you back into those bad days.
Prokarin had these effects on my wife...
- fatigue levels improved dramatically
- was able to tolerate heat a lot better
- appetite improved
- walking ability improved, albeit slowly
-cognative fog went away
Marg never had any side effects from Prokarin at all and she was in the 1/3 user group that experienced multiple symptom relief. Some patients get one or two symptoms relieved while some others get no benefit at all. The one good thing about the drug is that you know within a month or two if it's going to help you in any way. There aren't side effects so the worst that can happen to you is absolutely nothing.
The MS appeared to stabilize for several months but in March of 2001, she suffered a freak accident when she failed to lock the brake on her roller walker when she got out of bed one day. She fell awkwardly and broke her right leg in 3 places with spiral, stress fractures. The doc told her she would have been better off falling flat on her face. That event seemed to push her MS over the edge and she was never the same although she did manage to walk short distances after a lot of physio therapy.
Marg eventually came down with pancreatitis in Sept 2007 and that caused her death. Although it was the MS for many years which ate away at her overall health, the cause of death was listed as pancreatitis! No wonder they say most don't die from MS.
Marg never tried any of the "approved" MS drugs. Her neuros told her that they would be a waste of time since they were very disappointed in the overall results they were getting compared to what the drug companies told them to expect.
I find it ironic that I now read a scientific article stating how they think histamine can have an effect on treating MS when 18 years ago, they told Elaine Delack, the inventor of Prokarin, that she was a quack and not to be trusted. Then again, they've already said the same thing about Dr. Zamboni and CCSVI so I guess there is some consistency in the established MS world.
