Nitrous oxide and ms?

Postby Wonderfulworld » Fri Jan 25, 2008 10:16 am

Hi
I've seen a good few papers on Nitric oxide and MS, but just wondering about Nitrous oxide. <shortened url>
....excuse my ignorance but is it totally different?

It's just that nitrous oxide (tradename "Entonox") is used for pain relief during labour (34 wks pregnant at the moment!) and I'm researching my options - but I don't want to take it if it would increase relapse risk in any way.

Does anyone here know anything about this? My GP had no idea and obstetrician the same.

This prior thread had some discussion on the subject.

Thanks Jimmylegs and NHE. Looks like I may need to avoid the nitrous oxide even if it's not as bad as nitric oxide - just for b12 depletion and oxidation. Thanks
