I was taking Calcium/Magnesium and BComplex everyday since last May. I stopped them when I went all the meds is it safe to take these vitamins plus vit D? this is my first bout of MS(according to the Neurologist coz he never met me b4). I think I have yrs but have this bad bout since last May/August. Didn't think I would have a bout more than a month but 7ish months hmmm..bit too long.
Oops! I misread your post and thought you were in about week 5 of a relapse. I now question whether or not you are relapsing...doesn't sound like progressive ms either. (I am not a doctor!)
Have you had any nutrient testing done? There are a load of nutrient deficiencies/imbalances that can cause neuropathy. Recently, I've been sampling a bunch of them...all respond to adjusting supplements. Did you know copper deficiency mimics ms...including lesions?? Iron deficiency and high calcium can cause neuropathy. Magnesium deficiency can cause spasticity/muscle tension. Yadda yadda yadda. I would get some bloodwork done to test for b12, magnesium, copper, zinc, iron, ferritin, calcium, vitamin d. Then design a supplement plan around the results. If you already have those results, jimmylegs should be able to give you her take on the normal levels and help you come up with a plan. (I think you can continue your current supplements with meds...just take mag/calcium at least 2 hours from your oral meds)
7 months is a long time!
