After 3 months of dizziness, stumbling (like I'm intoxicated) headaches (unlike my typical migraines) and just not feeling right....I finally seen a Neurologist! I was so excited. I can't stand feeling this way. It feels like the neuron's aren't firing, I loose thought, can't articulate words, & stutter. It's so frustrating.
After a thorough exam & reviewing my history; we agreed to blood tests; an Evoked Potential Test & Spinal Tap in the next two weeks.
I show deficits on my right side. The MRI shows multiple lesions, including the brain stem. MS was suggested as a diagnosis; however, wants to rule out other diseases.
I'm trying to gain as much information as I can. I have a few questions.....
How do you know what medication to start on? Is it based on symptom control or to slow lesion progression? The side effects alone of these meds are enough to make someone run the other way!
Is there one central post or list about vitamins/minerals/herbs for treatment of MS?
Are the vitamins enough to help or are they used in combination with the medications for relief?
I am so grateful for this site. It has offered so much information!
