New and wondering

I got an mri after pretty much demanding one from the doc.

The innocous symptoms i have been feeling for the 2 years have been:
Flashing lights when eyes are closed

Would like some Feedback

During the past year, I have had a few issues medically that continue to build as time goes on. Started with being clumsy and dropping things to my reading words incorrectly and while speaking mixing up words in a sentence to mixing up syllables in a single word.

End stage of SPMS?

I was diagnosed in 2005 with practically no symptoms and in the past 10 years I have gone downhill to the point that I can no longer stand for more than 30 seconds - let alone walk.

New to Forum


I'm new to this forum. Diagnosed in 1998. On Copaxone since 2000. Just started Wahls Protocol. I'm noticing a lot of changes but none feel good.

Anyone out there notice physical discomfort at the beginning of the Wahls Protocol. Maybe a detox thing?

Identification of naturally occurring fatty acids of the myelin sheath that resolve neuroinflammation.
Sci Transl Med. 2012 Jun 6;4(137):137ra73.

    Lipids constitute 70% of the myelin sheath, and autoantibodies against lipids may contribute to the demyelination that characterizes multiple sclerosis (MS). We used lipid antigen microarrays and lipid mass spectrometry to identify bona fide lipid targets of the autoimmune ...
