Weight Gain????

Postby CherylLynn » Tue Jun 21, 2005 12:17 pm

Hi I am new to this and here is my question....I put it somewhere else but can not find it so here goes again and I hope this one I can find! I am 43 with a wonderful husband of almost 25 years and 4 kids from ages 19 to 5. I was diagnosed in 2001 but have had it for many years. Neuro feels I am going from RR to SP and I feel like I go downhill each day!!! Not a good feeling! Anyways I keep seeming to gain weight the Dr. says it is just because of my not being able to be active but any ideas what I could do???????? I know there are more important things but I feel like even my balance would be better if I was smaller! Thanks anyone who will read this and have ANY idea!

Weight gain and SPMS

Hello CherylLynn,

Typical response from your doctor, there, I'm afraid, but not much help.

You also said this somewhere else:
I was diagnosed in 2001 and am 43 I hate this disease although I know there are worse things!

I was diagnosed with SPMS in 2003 and was going very rapidly downhill at the time. In the long run, I would say, you might well end up thinking differently. I would suggest you read the following link on the Antibiotics thread:

"Ignoring the Evidence"


After this, if you are interested, there are many other links both in Antibiotics and the Regimens section. I seem to pop up all over the place!

However, I have been on this particular treatment for just under two years now, and despite for much of that time being a lot less active than I was a few years before, I was under 130 lbs when I started and am the same, without any dieting. Before this I was starting to put on some weight.

Sarah :)

Diagnosed 1992 so have suffered this illness for 14 years. Don't look obviously disabled but am currently suffering Mental health problems (no wheelchair for me!!!). Am thinking at the moment how a wheelchair would feel as oppose to mental health problems.

I never knew MS could take away your intelligence and logic.

Would be very interested to hear from anyone who can relate to my current state of mind (I'm seeing a neuropsychiatrist on March 1st).

I look forward to receiving some replies.

Yes, this disease takes away from you everything- intelligence, dignity, physical ability- some others, no doubt that we all know. My MS came on very brutally and swiftly but since i was "too old" for MS it was not diagnosed soon enough to prevent my slide to 6.7 on the EDSS. Now, after 18 months on abx I have climbed back up to 2.5. Please visit our increasing number on www.CPn Help.com to find out about the strong probability of MS being caused by Chlamydia Pneumonia in many cases.

2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to  flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
