VEP (Visual Evoked Potential) and Occipital Neuralgia

Does a VEP help in confirming Occipital Neuralgia? Has anyone else suffered from Occipital Neuralgia?

I've experienced symptoms consistent with Occpital Neuralgia for two years, but never knew what to call it. Just discovered what it is, and am wondering if my upcoming VEP would shed light on whether it is something I am suffering from.

(Please no vitamin B12 stuff on this post, TIA).

Overwhelmed with nutritional/vitamin information

I'm not a very good patient. I eat Taco Bell a couple times a month, I eat burgers, I drink beer... something tells me this stuff isn't on any of the preferred MS diets.

I want to eat right and keep myself held together as long as possible but unfortunately I can't sort it all out. There's so much information. Nutrition-wise, there's the Swank diet, the Wahls diet, the Real Man diet, the Paleo diet, ...

Agraphia with MS

I haven't been on the site awhile mostly due to getting sick of the same 2 or 3 people copy and pasting the same garbage in each thread. However I was thinking about something today and wanted to put it up to the forum and look for input.

Has anyone noticed symptoms similar to Agraphia with MS? Having a hard time grabbing the correct word in a sentence or while typing? It seems for me ...

Lost Routine/MS?

I had a great job last year, loved it. Full of energy, happy, no problems. However at the beginning of September I started feeling nauseous, getting sick at work, forgetting my calculations, slurred speech, exhausted. So of course went to my Doctor and told him what was going on. Meanwhile at work, getting sick and having fevers, I ended leaving because I just wasn't dependable anymore. I was very upset.
After that, I started noticing ...

Stay away from Beets and Sugar Beet byproducts

I noticed on serveral MS sites they recommend eating Beets. Based on some of the research I have seen I have to recommend to stay away from beets and beet root and beet sugar. I recently develop the early signs of MS and the only thing I could have caused it was the fact that I ate beets frequently since I was diagnosed with mild anemia. I ate them for the extra iron. Google Aze ...

(I'm 37 with 3 kids so put it down it being busy). I've also noticed that a problem with my fingers. I struggle to ...
