np re replies. although i may be going somewhat dark soon. moving to a place with no ready access.
what kind of prolapse? i haven't really heard much about sleep paralysis when it comes to ms. found one case study which mentioned resolution of sleep paralysis in an ms patient
"Pineal melatonin and monoaminergic neurons have been implicated in the induction and maintenance of REM sleep and the pathogenesis of sleep paralysis and it is suggested that resolution of sleep paralysis in this patient by AC pulsed applications of EMFs was related to enhancement of melatonin circadian rhythms and cerebral serotoninergic neurotransmitters."
i don't know how many of us have alcohol intolerance but i don't hear it as a regular complaint. eyesight yes, girdling pressure if not pain exactly, but it's hard to say.
now. what about those cold sores?
from recent chat general-discussion-f1/topic21312.html#p201604
"it's key to separate the influence of light period, from the influence of vitamin d3. what the uv light is doing for symptoms is possibly related moreso to melatonin and hippocampal neurogenesis than straight vit d3. http://wolfweb.unr.edu/homepage/vpravos
ms patients have characteristic hippocampal atrophy, and the eae virus attacks and kills murine hippocampal pyramidal neurons.
dietary tryptophan is a key ingredient for melatonin production." http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... t&dbid=103

as for sleep issues and nutrition, here's a very good table showing differences between nutrient intakes in patients w insomnia vs controls w normal sleep. just to demonstrate that nutrition does play a role in normal healthy sleep. http://synapse.koreamed.org/ViewImage.p ... n=_0161NRP
anyway. all that said, it sounds to me like you're not ready to take the importance of nutrition on board. imho it's pretty key to surviving ms if you have it, and pretty key in reducing risk of disease in general if you don't have ms. so if you come back to the idea of it in future feel free to ask any questions you may have.
fyi: do search the forum for terms like
post lumbar puncture postural migraine needle bevel
and that sort of thing. prior to going for the LP.
happy hunting! hope you get some answers
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
