MS and Heat, Why?

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

Then...I got a surprise, accidental diagnosis of MS -- while feeling GREAT.


How in the world did that happen? Do you have lesions, black holes, oligoclonal bands? My father had peripheral neuropathy, but not MS. From type II diabetes.

Short answer is: Yes, I do have lesions, black holes, oligoclonal bands. Also Dawson's Fingers, positive VEP/SSEPs and whatever else they look for in spinal fluid. My first MRI (without contrast) showed a brainful of MS-specific lesions in all the right places, including the brainstem. I've posted about this a number of times, including MRI shots.

I was diagnosed by a physiatrist/rehab doctor who found a few clues in a basic neuro exam (without a list of symptoms from me) and sent me for brain/c-spine MRIs. I felt so healthy at the time, though, I didn't even ask him what he was examining my brain for. :smile:
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)

That alone was probably a good treatment as it has the angiogenetic property. This can be a bad thing if somehow it affects precancerous tissue, but there seems to be an inverse proportionality between cancer and MS, for some reason, in a lot of people.

Anyway the angiogenesis might help increase blood flow/heat control and could have prevented these later-onset heat problems a lot of us progressives seem to have.

Sadly, after entering the year's experiment in great shape, I ended up using a cane by about halfway through that year on LDN...
