is Bungee Jumping dangerous for MS ?

I've diagnosed with MS last year and now I'm symptom-free and wanna Jump from a 40 meter bungee. Is this very dangerous for me? Does it increase the risk of another attack? Is there any previous cases of relapse due to jumping stress?
Thank you so much in advance.

Pregnenolone

Does anyone use pregnenolone instead of DHEA for nerve/myelin regeneration?
I have read that it works better as it can converted to DHEA and/or other hormones say testosterone, progesterone, estriol, estradiol etc through different pathways:

Results of a small HDC trial

Its only a small group of 9 MS patients with aggressive MS followed for up to 24 month. But a 39% average improvemt in EDSS sounds promising.

p.s.:
I posted the same study in the HDC forum because it seems to fit in both.
If I should avoid "doubleposting" of that kind in the future please let me know which forum I should prefer in a similar situation.

New

I'm new and just wanted to introduce myself. I was diagnosed in September 1999 when I was 22. I have PPMS. My symptoms have been a slow progression over the last 8-1/2 years. I use a cane now.

I am 30 now and just looking to make friends with those who understand the hardships of having MS.

Nice story

This is a nice story - this guy was diagnosed the same time as me (4 years ago). It was 27C (80F) in London yesterday. I went out for a 30 mins on my mountain bike - something I couldn't have done 2 years ago. Not quiet as impressive as winning a golf tournament - but being almost back to normal is priceless.
