Thank u want2bike for your information...i do believe that diet is important too. When i was doing the BBD diet in mid 2011, after my 1st exacerbations since dx, i realized that my symptomps almost gone completely, the tingling on my legs n arms almost gone (just a lil bit left), the fogging gone, my balance improved n my energy level was high though my bladder n bowel problem still persist, but i felt alive again then.
But unfortunately it just last for 1,5 month, then my symptomps come back again (in Aug 2011). I tried doing the diet more strictly than before, increasing my supplement intake, but no use, i got worse. After 3 months after my 2nd episode after dx, i decided to take steroid again but this time it didn't help much. Then on March 2012, i got another steroid and still the same it didn't help much. But strangely, in my 3rd episode after dx (last Oct 2012), i got hospitalized again and got another high dose steroid, and the result was beyond my expectation, my strength n my balanced improved better than before. I don't know why. Is it because i got treated immediately with steroid that make me feel better? Coz the same happened too in my 1st episode (not long after my episode, i got treated with high dose of steroid too)
I still doing the BBD but no too strict now, sometimes i eat bread, biscuits, cheese, sugar, chips and all other stuff that i shouldn't eat. But i don't drink milk anymore, which i used to have everyday. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables more than i used to. And i also take omega 3 supplement everyday.
Oh maybe it's not works the same on every one coz we don't know yet what causing MS maybe it's just multifactorial. I hope i could find out what's wrong with my body that causing this so called autoimmune disease. There should be a trigger that causing all this, isn't it?
Thank you again.
