New here

Hey I am new here and pretty sure I will be sticking around. I was rather suddenly told Wednesday (8/31) that I more than likely have MS. I went to see a neurological ophthalmologist for some new vision problems including the difficulty focusing after shifting my eyes and double vision while trying to focus. After focusing I had 20/15 vision. I then told him about an episode a few months previous with numbness on the ...

Potential New Symptoms

I've been having a helluva time lately. I've been on Tecfidera for months now - probably about four, and it's only recently that I've been experiencing some sudden and sometimes rather severe instances of what is I'm sure either a side effect from the medication, or a symptom of my MS becoming more active again. (I was diagnosed Jan 6 2016 after three years of sudden long-term numbness in arms, legs, and trunk). About a ...

Vitamin D protocol combined with Immune suppressants

I would like to hear from folks that had to be on other immune suppressants (other than Corticosteroids) while they waited for the vitamin D to stop the progression of their disease.
It would seem logical that blocking the immune system would be counterproductive, but D actually modulates the immune system causing genes to express in a positive manner.

My mom's disease attacks her kidneys and she is on cellcept.

Osteoporosis from Coimbra protocol - iodine and Boron

I see bone loss as one of the side effects of the Coimbra D3 protocol especially, for those that cannot exercise.

Boron is necessary for bone formation according to many studies.
Why doesn't Coimbra try using Boron to help folks with osteoporosis?
I was able to see a bone density improvement with my mom eating 4-6 prunes per day for 3 months.
Prunes are one of the highest in Boron foods.

10 prunes per day ...

So I got my second MRI back and they found 5 lesions….the neuro said some of these are “classic MS” and others are not. My first MRI only had one….however now the radiologist said he could point the 5 out on that one too. The neuro said they had changed some(this was 8 months ago)
