Time for a wheelchair. Any suggestions?

Its been 20 years since I was dxed. My walking ability has slowly deteriorated to the point where I want to get a wheelchair. I'm still able to hobble around the house with my cane and foot brace.

Any thoughts on Ray Peat's ideas of MS?

I don't have the sophisticated understanding of biology and chemistry to evaluate his claims But I know some people here do. Ray seems to march to his own drum, and claims that the problem with MS is essentially high serotonin, estrogen, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. But when I look at some studies, it seems that Swank got good results by increasing pUFAs, and some studies show disease modifying effects of SSRIs, which would counter the ...

Never-ending Beginning...

I was diagnosed with MS in January of 2015, after having beginning symptoms starting at the end of October 2014. I began Gilenya. I am not even sure exactly how many lesions were on that first MRI, however I did read the report in August of 2015. That MRI had over 20+ lesions, meaning way too many to count. I'm unable to have steroids, my body can't handle them, so I have to heal naturally, ...
