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

Eating and symptom exacerbation

Postby PJM26 » Sun Feb 14, 2016 2:05 pm

Does anyone find that remaining in a fasted state results in reduced symptom severity?

And conversely, does anyone find that eating exacerbates symptoms (more weakness, difficulty in transferring)?

I am simply trying to determine why this is the case for someone I know and which foods in particular cause this.

Thanks in advanced.

For me yes. I feel good have more energy and move much better when fasting. If I have an appointment or need to go out I just don't eat anything. I try to eat light or small meals. If I do have a large meal I'm like dead weight
and become weak and sloppy getting around. Not sure why this is.

Might have something to do with missing gut bacteria.
