Counterfit drugs flood into Britain

Health fears grow as fake drugs flood into Britain

Combined Antibiotic Protocol for MS - Begin Here

There is a lot of info here, there and everywhere. I'm putting this post up as a very basic place to start. I realize that my TIMS thread is now so long, it's likely cumbersome for someone to follow if they just want to find a starting point. I simply want to cover what I think are the obvious things someone with no prior knowledge of the ABX protocol would want to know.

I have noticed that the colder I am, especially if I am outside, the worse my symptoms get - my leg becomes very difficult to control, the dragging and dropping is severe and my walking becomes very spastic.

Is that normal?

I am trying to sort out my sleep patterns and why they are erratic.
I think establishing a chart might help, but I am also curious about my vitamin levels and the relationship they have.

There are times I am completely exhausted and want to sleep yet after a certain time in the evening I am doomed to be awake all night. Currently, I am only taking gabapentin.
