Hey Lyon--your points are very valid and well received. Guess the thought that "my" opinon would have any kind of influence on ANYONE never entered my mind!! (I am but a humble person....) That someone might make a decision on their MS treatment because of something I wrote...well, that's scary and something I would NEVER want to do! Thanks for your insightful perspective!
You haven't done anything that I haven't done myself....MANY times regarding my helminth parasites, although I'm trying to avoid whether or not adding them will eliminate autoimmune disease and trying to focus on their loss having led to the autoimmune diseases.
I have what are considered 4 autoimmune diseases myself (nothing like the severity of MS.)
I admit that MS is heinous, but I guess how they compare to MS depends on which four autoimmune/inflammatory diseases you have. My brother has Crohns. It's different than MS, but I can't say that I'd rather have that than MS.
A few days ago we heard from a lady that my wife used to work with. She says she is going on disability because of fibromyalgia. I didn't know much about it, so I looked it up. Chronic pain, in addition to the symptoms associated with MS and the others (fatigue, joint pain, raised chance of "acquiring" other autoimmunes).
I've said it before, considering how bad one autoimmune disease is, I can't imagine being "blessed" with more than one.
