Although my original post was about MS and relationships, without thinking about explaining further, I said:
As we all know, it was eventually determined that I do NOT have MS. Yippee!
I've had several questions regarding that. I guess I should have said "it was eventually determined that I do NOT have MS.........NOW." Bottom line, we don't know why. Has it been determined what I did/do have (all my life?).........it had
been determined, so they thought; but my improvement, (not only in slowing down evident neurological deterioration progression, but in REVERSING it and unexplainably returning actual "lost function"), it can no longer be said that I have MS.........anymore.
I guess that's the best I can do.
Is it the drugs I'm on? Well, I've shown enough research to show it "could" certainly be!
Is it because I've got some other CNS disease, but not MS? Could be, but now I'm pretty much in the normal range of health in any event, so they STILL can't even say I have any
particular type of neurological disease of ANY kind, really. (As long as I stay on my particular drug, diet, exercise and supplement routine.) It can be thought that I do, but there is no clinical proof or even major symptoms anymore. The only thing left is a little pain and stiffness, and some misc. minor stuff that cause no major problems, and isn't serious enough anymore to be able to be attributed to any "disease", per se.
My PCP and I, though, still call it MS for practical purposes. But clinically, no, I don't have MS anymore.
I know.............I go from being told I might have ALS, even, because I was getting so bad, to now not having anything? Uh huh..........let's not test the drugs I'm on. I certainly don't understand THAT logic, but who am I, huh?
I'm just happy I can say that not only my health has returned, but most of my lost function has returned also. THAT was the shocking part that holds no explanation.........the return of actual lost function. (And nope, the reversal was so much and so rapid, that they can't say it fits into RRMS, either. And ONLY happened rapidly after I started on the drugs, coincidentally. I figured they'd just say that proves I have RRMS....nope, I reversed farther back than that. They said "You do not have MS at all". Ok, I said!)
Only time will tell, now. And an autopsy some day.
