I'm happy to keep posting my progress on here, and I'm glad to hear you're taking interest to the idea. I had just poped over here to do exactly that
It'now been a little over 6 weeks since the treatment and the beginning of my last attack. All of the sensation symptomes resulting from the attack have either nearly or completly returned to their pre-attack levels. I'm still noticing some minor coordination and walking issues. For me, flairups in motor function tend to follow flairups in sensation. The effects have been much more mild in this attack, for instance: During my previous attack in Oct. '09 I was having serious difficulty with stairs. The past 5 weeks, I've been walking up and down the 2 flights of stairs that lead to my appartment with no problem!
The most unpleasant part of the last few weeks has been the frequency that I've had to use the toilet. I feel fairly sure that this is in a large part due to the worms. I've also had some bothersome stomach aches. There are plenty of times when I feel just fine, however, like right now.
As I've stated in previous posts, I'll only really be able to form a clear idea of how well they're working after a good deal of time has past. I did, however, recently have an experience that made me more certain of their effectiveness.
I was walking out of the grocery store the other day, and there was an apple tree in full bloom planted by the entrance. Normally, my alergies would start acting up just being near it, but no! I even felt brave enough to walk right up and take a great big whiff of it's wonderful scent.
So what does this have to do with hookworms and MS? Well, one of the added perks to hosting hookworms is that the immune response that they cause, the one that meant to put my MS under control, also is shown to help with allergies. So far, this is the most concrete sign that the worms are having an effect!
To that good news, I will add that I still get irritation from cats, and the true test of it's effectiveness on alergies will be when summer gets into full swing, lawns being mowed, hayfields being hayed, all that good stuff that's never failed to drive my alrgies crazy.....
