QuicheLorraine – do you have the record of all the inoculations ("shots") you received in the military?
I suspect you received a vaccination against tuberculosis with the BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guerin) vaccine. This is a live, but weakened (attenuated) bacteria. Dr. Denise Faustman is using this at Harvard University to reverse type I diabetes by causing the pancreas to increase insulin production.
In people with normal, appropriate insulin production, I think BCG causes excess production of insulin and starts the MS cascade.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
