L Dopa

I have been reading articles about the use of L Dopa to relieve some of the spasticity caused by Parkinsons. My main MS related issue is the spasticity in my legs. Bad, getting worse. None of the "drugs' I have been prescribed help in any way. Has anyone tried L Dopa for spasticity relief?

GCMAF, VDRS, viruses, bacteria, nagalase, gut flora etc

This is intriguing. I stumbled upon this whilst researching lyme treatments (yep, I've been poking around lyme land). Anyway, this isn't a great source and the whole concept seems to be controversial at this point (including retractions of papers) but this guy's site gives a pretty good run down of the whole GCMAF idea.

As I understand it, the blood test shows my kidneys are not clearing efficiently or effectively to rid my body of the contrast material. Is that correct, or am I misunderstanding? I'm wondering if this is something I should explore further. I think it's the creatinine levels.
