Anyone tried Chelation Therapy?

My BF has had Progressive MS for 5 years and is interested in trying Chelation Therapy to eradicate lead and heavy metals out of his body (career as plumber, high exposure to lead). I am looking for testimonials of people with MS who have tried Chelation, either successfully or unsuccessfully. If you have a success story, which type of Chelation formula did you use?

Never very good with introductions and I do apologize for such a short introduction.

Hello I'm new to group. Was told by my MD that I show classic signs of ms. Pain in hands radiating up arm with tingling and numbness in fingers. Pain in lower leg time going in toes. Today pain is in my calf area not lower leg. I'm also feeling like pins and needles sticking me. This is a little scary for me but just wanted some feed back if anyone else had these symptoms

My first post , tests done. Waiting.

My guess is I'm posting the same thing many have before. I've had symptoms for well over a decade.

I was first diagnosed with ocular migraines in 2005. Been to ER twice for weird symptoms. Sent to podiatrist when my foot & leg began failing.

Why has no one ever suggested ms??

My MRI shows one lesion. Right frontal white matter.

Anyone with any thoughts? Does it sound like ms?
