Diagnosis uncertain

Postby jessicagayle28 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 6:32 am

Hello everyone!
My name is Jessica and I am a 30 year old wife, mother, student and face painter. Last fall I started getting stabbing pains in my jaw. I thought it was heart related because it was so painful, but my EKG was normal. Then came the weird/weak feeling in my feet. Then numbness and tingling in my toes. The numbness and tingling started in a portion of my back and then it was in my face. I was also having pain almost like pins being stuck in my anywhere in my arms or legs at anytime for seemingly no reason. Then one day I lost control of my bladder.
My Dr. said it was possibly MS and sent me to a neurologist. The Neurologist just blew off my symptoms and told me to go to a gym, lose some weight and that I would feel better. He did order an MRI or a CAT scan(can't remember) but my insurance would not cover it and we just could not afford it. I left the neurologists office feeling like I was crazy. He treated me like I was just a hysterical woman. Well the symptoms eventually went away and so I chose to try and forget about the whole thing, until this fall. Again I am under a lot of stress plus I had a horrible cold and now I have migrating pain. First it was pain in my foot, then tendonitis in my left arm(woke up and could not lift me arm at all), then carpal tunnel like symptoms in my right hand. When the carpal tunnel went away in my right hand it came back in left hand. I call it carpal tunnel because I guess that is what it is although I have never had any problems like that in the past. So here I am trying to figure out if These new symptoms this fall could be signs of an MS relapse...if I even have MS to begin with.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am scared of this diagnosis, but I know there is something wrong or I am completely crazy. :o

Jessica,

No you are not mad, I would get your cervical spine (neck) checked by a reputable Chiropractor who speciialises in UCC management, ask Uprightdoc on here in ccsvi section he will help steer you in the right direction and answer any questions you may have.

in the meantime google Dr Windman Atlas there you will see the symptom TN which is facial pain Trigeminal Neuralgia ok

I know its easy to say, but try not to worry, there may be another reason for your probs other than ms

If you are having pain in your jaw consider any dental work you had done lately. Mercury poisoning can give similiar sympthoms to MS. There are detoxification programs which involve taking certain vitamins, minerals and supplements which allow the body to get rid of the mercury.

If you DO decide to get Mercury removed from fillings, make SURE the dentists uses a dental dam. I had mine removed by a dentist well versed in mercury safety. But it ended making no difference to my MS, but it was another unknown path ticked off. When I told me GP, he too had his mercury fillings removed by a dentist associated with his practice, and they did not use any protection, so he probably got the biggest hit of mercury simply by the removal....

I have a family member that is getting an old mercury filling replaced. They are undergoing a detox procedure with a high dose of glycine followed by Captomer (which is also known as DMSA or 2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid) before and after the filling replacement. DMSA appears to be a widely used compound for detoxing from heavy metals. However, I don't know if it also binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc like EDTA does. If it doesn't, then it's likely a better choice than EDTA.

There are natural ways of body detoxification which I have gone through. After being so sick I wanted to die, I tried it and was amazed at how fast I got better. This was before I had the amalgams removed from my mouth. Yes, it is important to use a mercury free dentist becasue most of the dental establishment ignore the fact that mercury is one of the most hazardous substance known to man. They put this stuff in your mouth and tell you it is safe. When they take it out it is treated as hazardous waste. Why is it safe when it is in your mouth and hazardous waste when they take it out? They have instrument which can measure the amount of mercury being released from the fillings. Once you get enough of this stuff in your body you get really sick. This tell me they are stupid or criminal. There are many people suffering serious illness caused by mercury and will never figure it out because the dental industry choose to ignore the facts. It is all about the money with them. What is really sad is all the children the have made sick with the mercury they have put in the vaccinations. When will they figure out it is not worth it. Everytime I go to my doctor he wants me to get the flu shot. I haven't gotten it for 4 years and have not gotten the flu. Being healthy is about what you put in your body. It is all about the food we eat.

Tom Mcquire, DDS believes that DMSA binds with calcium and other minerals. I used his program for detoxification but did not use the DMSA. It is an option he gives along with the natural substances. If you look at the article the study done in Germany impressed me the most. VI. Recovery from Chronic Neurological and Immune Related Diseases Amalgam Removal and Mercury Detoxification; under Tests and Treatment. In a large German study of MS patients after amalgam revision, extraction resulted in 85% recovery rate versus only 16% for filling replacement. No matter which you choose nothing is 100%. A lot depends on how well we can get the mercury out of the body. Think it is possible to damage the body beyond repair. The only thing to do is try different things until you find out what works for you. With me once I started the detoxification program I noticed a difference within a week. That convinced me that mercury was my problem and I had my teeth taken care of with a mercury free dentist. Even though amalgams are the biggest source of mercury it is important to remember it is not the only source. Other soarces are vaccinations, fish and enviromental.

I'm still in the learning process here, though I have found what appears to be a good reference via a Google Books search result. The following screen captures are from Inorganic Lead Exposure: metabolism and intoxication by Nicoló Castellino, Pietro Castellino and Nicola Sannolo.

Here's reference #54 cited above in the second capture.

Dose-response study of oral 2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid in children with elevated blood lead concentrations.
J Pediatr. 1988 Oct;113(4):751-7.

    2,3-Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is an orally effective orphan drug that is more specific and has a wider therapeutic index than other currently available drugs used for lead intoxication. Its investigational use in the United States has been limited to the treatment of men with occupational plumbism. Twenty-one children with blood lead concentrations of 31 to 49 micrograms/dl, who also had a positive calcium disodium edetate (CaNa2EDTA) mobilization test result, were hospitalized for 7 days. Fifteen children were randomly assigned to three groups that received either 350, 700, or 1050 mg/m2/day, respectively, of DMSA in three divided doses daily. A fourth group of six children received conventional treatment with 1000 mg/m2/day of intravenously administered CaNa2EDTA in two divided doses daily. The 1050 mg/m2/day dose of DMSA was significantly more effective than lower doses of DMSA or intravenously administered CaNa2EDTA in reducing blood lead levels and restoring erythrocyte delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase activity. Intravenously administered CaNa2EDTA significantly increased the urinary excretion of several essential minerals (zinc, copper, iron, and calcium), whereas DMSA did not. The DMSA was well tolerated and appears extremely promising as a drug that will simplify the management of childhood lead poisoning.
