Hey guys how are you... i guess i can start my introduction by telling you my story

In 2008 i deployed as part of the crew of the U.S.S San Antonio while i was serving in the navy. Towards the middle of this deployment i began to experience blurred vision, numbess and tingling of the hands, doctors onboard ship could not figure out what was wrong with me. blood work after blood work and no clue. after about two months it went away. We returned home in march of 2009 no more problem i thought everything was fine, in november of 2009 i again began to experience symptoms only this time there no blurred vision, just loss of strentgth and feeling. This time due to ship crew rotations we had a new doc onboard, she took an interest in what was wrong with me. after more blood work and no clues she sent me for an MRI. A few days later she reveals to me that the MRI showed lesions in my brain and she had already set up a neurology appointment. this doc performed a lumbar puncture right away, a few days later it was confirmed that i had MS. I started medication right away with avonex and six months after my diagnosis the Navy put me out on medical, i miss it everyday. now once i got home i began to see a new doctor at the va hospital, about a year after i came home i began to experience what my doc has called injection depression, i stopped my meds altogether for about six months maybe more. after a lot of butt chewings by my doc we went with a new treatment and im currently on gylenia. thats pretty much my MS story

I guess what i want to accomplish here is this. thank god i have not had any exhaserbations (yes i know i probably butchered that word) in the three years since my diagnosis, however for one my optic nerve in my right has some damaged which has caused me to have to teach myself to be left eye dominant when it comes to shooting, i currently work as a security contractor for department of homeland security. as for my eye sight is there anything that can be done since my chosen profession has been law enforcement which is what im trying to get into

2 i currently have one daughter and another child on the way, should we be worried about either of them possibly developing ms since i have it

and 3 what are other, better treatments has anyone done any research on HGH in MS patients

thank you for those who chose to read my post i know it was long

Thanks again

Did you receive a lot of vaccinations while in the service? What ever the problem diet is the key to healing. Couple of links to give you a clue as to what might be going on.

hi omar and welcome to the forum

for your eyes I would consider some nutritional therapy and hope it's not gone to the point of permanent damage yet.

mainstream docs don't look at nutrients enough, it's why the tests find nothing. they're not looking for levels on the nutrients we know are off. and even if they did the right tests, the results would be 'normal'. so unless they understood that one can be both 'normal' and deficient simultaneously, and that ms patients - while deficient - will often test 'low normal', even doing the right tests could fail to provide you with an action plan to restore health.

zinc is a key nutrient for ms, and for eye health. if you can check your records for a serum zinc level that's a start. if it's not in the file, considering having that test done and make sure your level is high normal ie 120-130 ug/dL. it gets complicated but that's enough for first steps.

as for the kids, strictly from the nutrient perspective yes moms can pass on nutrient deficits to kids. and family dietary habits can have a negative influence on jr's health just the same as mom or dad (in combination with genetic predisposition)

I don't know about HGH. I consider nutrient optimization to be a critical first step in dealing with an ms dx. unfortunately at this stage, wrt nutrition it's pretty much every patient for his or herself.

I put together a detailed post on what I've found re nutrition for optimal health here:

lots of info packed in there, but if you have any questions feel free.

want2bike... i did receive a few vaccinations while in service for sure the ones i can remember off the top of my head i received right before deployment... which were twinrix, anthrax vaccination, and small pox.... thats not including everything i received while in basic....

jimmylegs.. thank you for the information i am definitely going to go through your thread as well as i go through more of the stuff in the forums including my gylenia meds information.... my next doc visit should be sometime next month so i will definitely ask about zinc levels.... and im still wanting to find out some information about the hgh in ms patients

no probs :)

fyi I don't know exactly what every problem is with vaccines but one controversial aspect is the risk associated with mercury content.

your body uses specific metalloproteinases to handle toxic mercury. if the metalloproteinases were not there in sufficient amounts it could lead to a patient having a negative reaction. the metalloenzymes are zinc-dependent. so handling mercury inputs from vaccines, the atmosphere, dental fillings, etc, all require a good zinc stockpile. in ms patients (and in some children), this resource is depleted.

interestingly, I was diagnosed within weeks of receiving mandatory travel vaccines. I ended up having to postpone my planned trip for several months. found out much later that I was zinc deficient.

Welcome to ThisIsMS, Omar.

Because my insulin test level is always elevated, I suspect that excess insulin is involved in my MS. This is the reason I always suggest that anyone with an MS diagnosis should ask his/her doctor to order a "fasting blood insulin test." By the way, this is not the same as a glucose test.

In view of the following information on the BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin) vaccine, I wonder if you have your record of all the inoculations ("shots") you received in the military. Do you know if you received a vaccine against tuberculosis in the battery of inoculations you got? Dr. Denise Faustman, Director of the Immunobiology Laboratory in Boston, seems to have found a way to restore insulin production and, thereby, reverse type I diabetes.
In the following interview she is talking about using multiple BCG vaccines: http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/192352 ... t-diabetes

Here is a Bloomberg article with more details: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-0 ... or-tb.html

I know that this vaccine (for tuberculosis) is required for school-age children in the UK (I believe it contributes to the prevalence of MS there.); I do not know if the BCG vaccine is given to US military recruits. If Dr. Faustman can restart insulin secretion in type I diabetics, perhaps the vaccine causes overproduction in healthy military troops who start with a normal, appropriate amount of insulin; and (if excess production does initiate MS,) then MS may be triggered in some of them?

You may find other useful information and fellow military contacts in the forum, "Veterans and MS," in the index: veterans-and-ms-f51/

To answer your specific questions…

1) I do not know of anything that can be done for vision, if there is actually permanent damage. However, I am not convinced of the permanency of MS symptoms; I believe when the cause of MS is found and fixed, we will return to normal.

2) If you and your whole family follow a diet that does not stimulate insulin production, I think the possibility of your children developing MS would be low.

3) I know nothing about HGH in MS patients. Since my objective is to reduce insulin levels, I think diet is the best treatment.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

My advice would be to stay away from all vaccines in the future. Visit the diet section on this site and select a healthy diet consisting of fruits and vegetables. Healing comes from the food we put in our bodies.
