Who here takes only LDN and NO other MS drugs? PLEASE post

I just stopped taking MS drugs this Monday to give LDN a shot for 6 months. I am really concerned I might have made the wrong decision and being foolish? If anyone here takes only LDN for their MS and NO other MS drugs, PLEASE post here and let me know and how you are doing on it in regards to progression and MRI scans?

I would be incredibly grateful for feedback on this. Thanks. ...

reengaging w/ ms stuff

this is mostly copy/pasted from a reintroduction I posted on a far less active board yesterday

My account has been dormant so long that I think I registered with an email attached to an ISP that I abandoned years ago. I was psyched when this forum started and it seemed to be attracting good people, but I started to feel like I was dedicating too much time to my identity as a patient and stopped ...

Sexual dysfunction: An overlooked side effect of MS

More common than anyone suspects, the unspoken issue of sexual dysfunction affects more than half of the MS population.

Researchers delved into the private lives of men with multiple sclerosis (MS) in a recent study and discovered that sexual dysfunction is a common MS complication.

extreme athletics

Is there any basis to think that extremely vigorous exercise is bad for MS?

Explain what you mean by numbness.

Hi all,

I'm trying to get a better understanding of the symptoms that I'm currently having and I've been doing extensive research on MS and other demyelinating diseases as I wasn't sold on my Dr's 'It's probably MS' diagnosis and will be getting a second opinion in due course.

For those of you who experience numbness / tingling, how often does the numbness occur? Does it last all day? Does it sporadically come on and ...
