Not new to MS but can't find a stable job

Hello all I am in my fourth year of having MS and cannot find a stable job. I have a contract job that I can go back to in about 5 weeks. The bad thing is that it is shifts which somehow I handled it and called in when my legs were feeling weak. My last 4 months I was forced to work on a different crew and was no happy because I had to ...

The Wheldon Protocol, Some Advice, Please...

Hello everyone,

My name is Craig and I am 39 years old. I was diagnosed with MS on my 30th birthday, even though they could trace it back to 1997.

After failed attempts on conventional treatments- the ineffective Rebif, to be precise- I started on LDN in 2009 with improved my symptoms immensely... at the beginning.

Last year, I stumbled upon the Wheldon Protocol- Sarah's story- and informed my GP I would like to try ...

What does it mean

What does it mean when you can't do one/some of the neuro tests?

I had an appointment yesterday as the one month follow up to the last appointment where nothing was seen on brain MRI and so off I was sent.

Since that time my legs have become affected.

Anyway, I could do 2 steps of heel toe walking before he told me to stop before I fell.

My heel feel off my shin when ...

Cannot wait for diagnosis to stop pain

Hi everyone and thank you in anticipation for reading my post. Last July I suffered a bad flu virus and about two weeks later started getting strange symptoms. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and after finally getting to see a pain specialist early this year, I was told that he thought that was an incorrect diagnosis and that I needed to see a neurologist. Two previous rheumatologist discharged me as they said there was nothing ...

Diagnosed today

Hi all,

As per the subject title, I was diagnosed with MS today and have joined the board in order to read others stories, share stories, and enlighten myself on MS and the treatments available.

In 2009, I had woken up one morning and felt that I was going blind. My vision was blurry in both eyes. If I was to use my peripheral vision, or to turn my head to the left, my right ...

Don't my symptoms have to be SOMETHING??

I began having symptoms in early February which at first alarmed me, but which I quickly dismissed as being something benign. I was having trouble seeing in a vague sort of way and I had two days of numbness in my extremities and face. Then a month later, while the vision had deteriorated into double vision and an extreme sensitivity to light, the numbness returned. Since that time, I have experienced heat intolerance, confusion, random ...

Need help with LDN!!!

I've had MS for the past 11 yrs, I highly dislike my neuro (Dr Rammohan) for many reasons. First, he knows absolutely NOTHING about nutrition and also thinks Dr Roy Swank is a "joke", this is a disgrace. He also refuses to write me a prescription for LDN.

My question is, what dosage did you guys start out with? 1.5mg? Also, the compounding pharmacy I found informed me the Naltrexone would come in capsules made ...
