I checked in here and wanted to further qualify my situation. My MS was a mixed bag. Until about 2 years ago, I had been in a complete remission for 15 years (no attacks or new lesions). I was either pregnant or nursing for 5 1/2 years until 2006. Nursing was the best for my MS. I didn't know, at the time, that prolactin was one of the few things found in studies to regenerate myelin. After I weaned I took a dramatic and unrelenting downhill spiral. I went from perfectly normal to shaking violently, not being able to bathe myself at times, etc., etc., etc...I tried all the FDA approved CRAB's and well as diets, LDN, SF 1019, the drug that Alan Osmond is on with great success, and nothing helped. I believe I was 6 months away from a nursing home.
At the same time that my MS became very active, in terms of enhancing lesions, I also become progressive. I was a definitely secondary progressive, but I continued to have some enhancing lesions on my MRI's and because of this, I still qualified for the Revimmune. It has always been strange to me that I didn't become SPMS until my disease once again became active.
