The woman in the article claims that taking antibiotics "triggered" her to get MS.
Antibiotics led me to become blind and crippled
Mar 20 2006
A GRANDMOTHER who believes she developed multiple sclerosis after taking antibiotics for a sore throat has urged fellow sufferers not to give up hope of a cure.
Reading-born Sue Moore, 57, claims prescription drugs caused a surplus of yeast - called candida or candida albicans - in her body. That, she says triggered MS and left her blind and crippled.
Although medical experts say MS is not caused this way, Sue is unconvinced and says a yeast free diet cured her.
She was prescribed two courses of antibiotics in a week by a London doctor when she was 33.
The former pupil of Emmer Green Primary School in Grove Road and the old Grove Secondary Modern in Surley Row,was admitted to hospital two weeks later for eight days.
For four-and-a-half years she experienced colour blindness, headaches, memory loss and aching joints.
When she moved to Shropshire in May 1985 she began to go blind and Birmingham doctors who diagnosed her with multiple sclerosis prescribed steroids.
By October Sue, once of Evesham Road,Emmer Green, was blind,crippled and partially deaf.
She discovered the existence of candida by "pure fluke" listening to a discussion on TV programme Pebble Mill at One.
The grandmother-of-three said: "I screamed because I realised then what was causing my MS."
Following the yeast-free diet, after two years she regained her sight and hearing and began walking on crutches.
Sue,a data systems designer for the oil industry before her illness, said: "My career has been wrecked and I have had so much taken away from me.
"I'm speaking out now because candida is appearing more and more in the public eye and people should know about its effects. I urge anyone diagnosed with MS to look back at their history to see if they have been treated with antibiotics or steroids."
MS Society spokesman David Harrison said: "There is no research to suggest there is a link between candida and MS,although some argue there is.
"Some symptoms are similar and candida can make MS worse but there is no known cure for MS at the moment."
Clinical nutritionist Michael Franklin of The Allergy and Nutrition Centre,added: "Candida doesn't trigger MS but its symptoms mirror that of MS,to such an extent doctors may diagnosis MS."
