re boxing, as an active person have your docs looked at your nutritional status at all? how's your diet, and do you take any supplements?
athletes with neurological symptoms like yours seem to be fairly regularly showing up here on the forum. might be a good idea to do some investigating along those lines, if only to rule out any possible influence diet and lifestyle might be having on your nutrient status.
this link points to the last related inquiry we had in feb 2014:
the post links up to about 9 other related inquiries going back to 2010.
this is my nutritional approach to dealing with ms (targeting healthy nutrient levels rather than ms patient levels) regimens-f22/topic2489.html
i use the exact same approach for friends and students that have health issues related to athleticism. target healthy.
it could be a nice complement to the wahls diet approach.
about those leg cramps, i'd say you might want to have a look at magnesium. do you have any serum magnesium tests on file, and do you know how much daily magnesium intake you're currently getting? if not, see if you can tally up your intake by looking at this food list and the milligrams of mag per serving: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... #foodchart
if you're up near 600mg per day, magnesium is probably not your concern. if you're below 450mg per day, it's very likely something to follow up on.
