Re: Bowen technique question

Hi, Bowen therapy is supposed to work on fascia. Two things might have happened - 1) he wasn't as skilled as he professed to be or 2) one session wasn't enough and what was done has triggered a reaction by working one area of fascia without compensating another area. Without seeing what your talking...

Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

Hi, I don't have it so I can't speak with the authority of personal experience. There are a scattered number of reviews that link the pain to herpes viruses. I imagine it would be similar to how herpes zoster causes painful blistering of nerve endings in shingles. I do take 2x500mg of valacyclovir e...

Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

Hi,

TN is mainly attributed to either a viral cause or compression of a specific nerve. It is not easy to solve. Given all your other issues, I think you should see a neurologist. I wouldn't wait.

Regards,

Re: MS Hug

Hi, Mine became very troubling but it was a pretty major attack. The points of the ribcage were being pulled in and down as the intercostal muscles between each rib began squeezing my whole rib cage. Your issue sounds more like a sensory nerve problem. You will definitely know the difference if it d...

Re: MS Hug

Hi, Having experienced a really big hug, I'd say it's not a hug yet but its the right area. What you're feeling is a fairly compelling reason to get the MRI done. Not everything that causes these problems is MS but you need to check. If it develops into a full blown hug then you will know it. Even p...

Re: How do your flares end?

Hi, We have to be careful not to confuse apples with pears. You may not have MS as not all lesions are caused by it. The B12 issues may be a separate thing. The problems your chiropractor fixed may have been due to a subluxation caused by a misalignment of your head and/or neck. It may have absolute...

Re: Interesting General info on Magnesium

Hi, In his defense, long before he was putting his name to branded supplements, Sinatra wrote a book called "Metabolic Cardiology" ( https://www.amazon.com/Sinatra-Solution-Metabolic-Cardiology/dp/1591202914 ) which is where I learned the basics of ATP. His grounding was as a practicing cardiologist...

Hi, It's a protein that is naturally expressed that helps control the spread of cancers, like breast cancer, by modulating other proteins expressed in bone marrow. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12588853?dopt=Abstract Probably a long way from being a conclusive element in MS development. Re...

Re: It’s probably just fear but....

Hi, At the moment, you're still mobile. Aches and pains, tight muscles and a raft of other issues are all experiences we have. My legs and feet were more painful 20 years ago than they are today. I still have a lot of issues associated with tightness but I'm now a long way from a wheelchair. I used ...

Re: Other people's ideas

Hi, I don't think it would have any direct effect on bowel or bladder. It wouldn't change the function. If tight skeletal muscles indirectly inhibit function then it might improve things as those muscles relax. The dose is very low (at 2x 25mg) but it is extremely effective. There is a transition pe...

Re: Round lesions?

Hi,

It's probably worthwhile changing neurologists. (Just ask for a second opinion).

The MRI should have been done with contrast anyway. Not all lesions relate to MS so I would conclude nothing yet.

Was your spine scanned or just the brain?

Re: Other people's ideas

Hi, When you have reached that point where your body is just getting too tight, I found the only thing that works is 2x25mg of Dantrium. It is a recognised MS prescription drug but it seems to be rarely used. Probably because it is so effective that people think they feel worse rather than better wh...

Re: I'm making myself a lab rat for n-acetylglucosamine

Hi, I was a bit concerned when you were trying NAG. When I tried it, it coincided with an attack that nearly killed me. If you feel you are worsening, even though you have stopped it, don't hesitate to approach a neurologist. Just say you're having a relapse and need a bit of IV prednisone to get ov...

Re: Swimming training

Hi, The two things to note in this piece, achieved here by giving mice a sink or swim option, is exercise a) boosts brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and b) increases IL10. There is actually quite a lot of studies that show exercise increases BDNF. In turn, higher BDNF boosts the anti-inflamm...
