Bioness L300, set for right and left legs.

More tests or "wait & see"?

Hi - this is my first post to this forum. I'm curious on your opinions regarding continuing to test for possible MS or just taking a wait & see attitude. A little history:

I had a first bout of Abducen's Palsy in 2008 lasting about 3 weeks. Brain MRI w & w/o contrast was completely clean. All signs cleared up completely & we chalked it up to a random occurrence.

I had a 2nd bout ...

does it get worse before getting better

I think I've mentioned this here before, but I think I was alone on this. I'm still trying to make Tec work, and am on my sixth attempt. What happens is about a week into the half dose, I start getting all kinds of new MS symptoms. These disappear when I discontinue the drug. For example, I just started getting the hug tonight--never had that before. Or I'll start feeling wobbly on my feet, or ...

Even the enemy can see the difference if they do things righ

We have again another report finding differences in blood flow but saying that they are the consequence. The most important contribution of these articles is that they show that flow differences really exists, and even the CCSVI-against doctors can find them.

MS? other autoimmune problem? Sport-induced partly

In mid July I got a surprise asthma attack in the middle of the night. I never had asthma before, and it took about 6 weeks and lots of medication to get better again.

2-3 weeks after the attack, I had just stopped oral prednisolone (only took for 6 days) I felt very confused, scared and my left lower limbs and right knee started tingling. Didn't connect this with the pills. Went to ER, got ...

Diet cure anyone?

Hi There,

I am relatively new to MS - 1 year diagnosed with PPMS, 3 years suffering from symptoms. I have tried a vast number of 'cures' over the past 2 years costing thousands of $ all to no avail.

I now try a mixture of supplements, low dose naltraxone, exercise and an adapted Jelinek/Wahls diet (plus occasional visits to a Psychologist). I cope OK.
What I want to ask the forum is this: Who ...
