Treating symptoms only

Postby Eliza383 » Sat Jan 14, 2012 11:12 am

Hi! Right now I've been diagnosed with a demyelinating disease, but not specifically MS. Regular MRIs may alter the dx to MS, but for now I'm only treating symptoms.

I'm taking Amantadine for fatigue and it works really well! But I really do ha be to take it every 12 hours, keeping a steady level. I'm also taking Valium for the jaw pain. That used to help more than it does.

Anyone else taking Valium? Has it helped with your spasming?

welcome to TIMS eliza, you might be interested in having a read on nutrition for pain and spasm/spasticity. lots of posted info here re magnesium, vitamin d3, including co-factors etc. hth!
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Hi there!
I know a case. There was this lady, who was experiencing stiffness and muscle spasms for long. Her doctor recommended her Physical therapy which really helped her within few months. For Jaws, i got to know that mechanical aids e.g using braces might help you reduce jaw pain. I've heard of valium at different forums and people usually prefer it over other meds. I think it's fine if you're using it.
Good Luck by the way. Hope you get alright soon and do not go ahead in this.
