Hi everyone,

What a shocker to see this thread still going strong. Arron, you are quite the administrator, and a great welcome committee!

I'm sorry I have been away so long, and hope to do a better job of stopping in and saying howdy!

Sincerely,

REDHAIRANDTEMPER
My opinion. I would not wait for the dx to start a treatment plan. I would switch my eating habits to low saturated fat. I would get tested for allergies as well as intolerances and remove them from my diet. I would not smoke nor abuse alcohol nor caffeine as well as absolutely no aspartame. I would add cold water fish at least 3-5 times per week as well as turmeric a 1/2 tsp per day. I'd also make sure to stretch as well as some cardio each and every day. Hubby (John)had your symptoms and they are gone other than the ON as we were living in denial at that point and did not act when we should have. Just an opinion good luck.
John was diagnosed Jan 2005. On lipitor 20mg .On Copaxone since July 4,2005. Vitamin D3 2000iu-4000iu (depending on sunshine months)June 10 2005(RX::Dr. O'Connor) Omega 3 as well Turmeric since April 2005. Q10 60mg. 1500mg liquid Glucosamine Nov 2005.

I jut thought I would introduce myself briefly. I am 25 years old. I had my first ms relapse (optic neuritis) at the age of 18 while I was completing my first year of university. One and a half year later, I got a second optic neuritis. After my second ON, I had an MRI which led to a definite diagnostic. Five years later, I still don’t really have any visible symptoms. I guess the only symptom that really has had a big impact on my life, for past 7 years, is intense fatigue. I have been dealing with dizziness since my last relapse (2 months ago) but dizziness appears to be diminishing with time. I hope it completely goes away! Dizziness is NOT a fun symptom.

After receiving my diagnostic, I started taking Rebif but I could not tolerate the side effects so I switched to Copaxone and I have been taking it since.

from Wisconsin here....

Postby beatms » Sat Jan 28, 2006 11:34 am

My name is Dave. I am a substitute teacher here is Wisconsin. I am looking to starting a lifestyle coaching business to help others the way I have been helped-with a focus on God. I think God wants me to share with others the info that has helped me literally be able to stand again. I feel my faith has been a very important part of my healing (both physical and emotional).

I am not using this forum to sell probiotics or my services. I am offering people my research paper that has taken about a year to compile for free because I want to let people that have gone through similar suffering know what has helped me. It is my unsupervised research, and is open to your feedback and critique. Thank you for understanding my intentions.

You can read it at

Blessings,
Dave

Introducing myself

Postby Casey » Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:43 am

Hi,

I was diagnosed with MS May 2005 and haven't been brave enough to post any messages on this board yet! Anyway I thought I'd be brave and start writing as this looks like a great website.

I'm 34 and living in North London with my boyfriend.

Have got a dodgy left leg that likes to drag itself along nowadays which is reeeally annoying!

Am not taking any prescribed medication as I'm not eligible, apparently I've only had 1 relapse which isn't enough!

It's nice to know there are other people to talk to out there as it can feel very lonely at times.

xx
