Dissecting PN

Feeling that B12 is closely connected to my MS I connected with an ME/CFS forum where b12 is a HUGE topic of discussion. I met this Ozzie (PhD Bio-Chem) that has a new B12 transdermal oils co. He offered to review my genetic profile which I sent him. His review (highlights):

Hi PN,

Green is good (-/-), red is bad (+/+).

It looks like lemtrada/alemtuzumab got approved by the FDA

Mostly socially, but also in other areas.

My life has been a roller coaster and my issues have been a major strain on my ...

Are MS attacks completely random?

I strongly believe there are reasons behind all my attacks, stress or excessive weight lifting and processed fast foods, and I need to know if others think their attacks have been randomly occurring for no reason, as I am not taking any meds and I will try to cut out the triggers and go at this naturally, your inputs are greatly appreciated

Doctors can't diagnose - I started thinking it's MS

Hi,

I've consulted to three podiatrists and two neurologists because of severe pain around foot & ankle which starts after 2-3 minutes of walking and after some time, turns into foot drop, disabling the dorsiflexion reflex completely and giving me terrible pain alongside with numbness.

I had x-ray, MRI and EMG scans which showed no problem at all. Everything was perfectly fine according to them. No lesion in tissues, no function loss or damage in ...

IVIG

Lyme disease triggered my MS about 25 yrs ago. There was a time when I took ivig50 g per month and it was helping. Thus January cigna denied coverage. Had to go to HR, got it covered again. Getting port on Tuesday.
I have tried Copaxone, calcium EAP, Prokarin, B1/liver extract shots but I am hoping the ivig will help me get to a better place.

Just sharing my experience w IVIG
