Re: Biotin, good news (in french)

Sorry. I am using my phone with speech to text. Apple has this annoying autocorrect that cannot be disabled. It ruined this function that used to work much better. I am also legally blind. So despite any impression you may have of me swallowing gallons of biotin dont worry. I have done the research....

Mcg. Or 10g. These studies were using 50 to 200g. That requires a prescription.

Re: Biotin, good news (in french)

I was taking about 10,000 per day and had to stop because my hair was falling out by the handfuls. The only information I can find on the Internet says that it makes your hair grow. Has anybody else experienced this with high doses

Re: erectile disfunction

Do you take any antidepressants? They can cause it. I have experienced the lack of drive you mention, but not to that degree. Here are some things that help balance the hormones and brain chemistry. Zinc is essential. Fish oil and vitamin A. Fish oil because it thins the blood, and vitamin A affects...

Re: Interesting Information About Lectins

Wow so much I disagree with squeezed into one post. I don’t know where these numbers and data are coming from that are thrown around on this thread. But unfortunately about 85% of us will transition into the progressive form of the disease. Only about 12 to 15% have the so-called benign course. So s...

Re: MS pain

As I stated in my previous post, I do not doubt that people legitimately experience pain. I do doubt that such a large percentage of people are experiencing pain. Just look at this forum, We do not see an overwhelming number of references to pain.

MS pain

I know this topic may stir up the proverbial hornets nest. But I have had multiple sclerosis now for nearly 12 years. Other than some initial optic pain, I have never experienced pain. I know that for a long while many doctors did not think that MS even caused pain. Now it seems that every forum I c...

Re: Has being dairy free helped anyone's symptoms?

I think being dairy free is the most important thing I do. most people give up on diets because they don’t see immediate results. Diet is not a drug, obviously..It takes a long time to change your gut bacteria and body composition. If somebody is morbidly obese and eats a salad or two, and then say ...

Re: Has anyone else tried clemastine fumarate @ new relapse?

How is rituxan? My doc prescribed it but I haven’t started yet. The list of side effects is scary. As for clemestine the subjects took the equivalent of four per day. I did less than that and fell asleep at work. It also slows your digestion significantly. I take smaller doses but no observable chan...

work place accomodation

Hi all, I have been out of the work force for a while. I am giving a shot at trying to get back in and am applying for a position I am doing the dance of trying to down play things, yet having to explain an experience gap. The position is an office job, but the description requires a drivers license...

Eye movement

Have you ever had a symptom where one of you eyes does the move properly? I recently had some face freeze for the first time when I realized only half of my lips smiled, but that cleared up within a couple of days. Then I started having double vision I realized it is because my right eye does not mo...

Re: Vitamin D ‘could repair nerve damage’

Interesting, the only thing I noticed when I take vitamin D is that I get dizzy and light headed, and I gain large amounts of belly fat. This probably has something to do with blood calcium levels but I don't know After numbers of years, I now feel better not taking it. I wish I knew why

Re: Frustrated

If it is multiple sclerosis you would expect to find some brain lesions or at least indication on a spinal tap. Perhaps the doctor does not have enough to call that multiple sclerosis yet. That does not mean that your son has something else, but it is possible. Have They looked at Lyme disease, B12 ...

Any thoughts on Ray Peat's ideas of MS?

I don't have the sophisticated understanding of biology and chemistry to evaluate his claims But I know some people here do. Ray seems to march to his own drum, and claims that the problem with MS is essentially high serotonin, estrogen, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. But when I look at some studi...
