Re: Thinking of stopping Tysabri. Thoughts appreciated

I stopped Tysabri after 60+ infusions. It just didn't seem to be working anymore. I started Gilenya 15 months ago and I am having doubts about it now. Waiting fora consult with my neuro to discuss what to do next

Re: Dietary change and not for the better

Wow! I never thought that a change in diet could do so much damage. I will do the math with you over the coming weeks, if the offer is still open?

Re: Dietary change and not for the better

Hi jimmylegs- when you say "it was to get rid of processed foods..permanent damage as a result" I'm presuming the damage was done while processed foods made up a part of your diet. Am I right? Was it all processed food or were there particular offenders? and what damage did they do. I loved my sausa...

Re: Dietary change and not for the better

Thanks for the links jimmylegs. I have spoken with my neurologist and believe it is a relapse (not a bad one) but since it is 4 years since I had steroids he is going to organise an IV course. The timing of the relapse is coincidental with the dietary changes. I will find out for certain over the co...

Re: Dietary change and not for the better

Hi jimmylegs, I haven't done the math recently because the only change I made in the last 2 years was to go largely organic and cut out wheat, gluten and dairy products and also the daily dose of chia seeds. I really was doing fine up to this. My legs are definitely weaker/sorer more uncomfortable d...

Re: Dietary change and not for the better

Thanks for the repies :smile: Recently is 3 weeks ago. I accept that changes take time but I didn't expect a change for the worse. The old adage 'it will get worse before it gets better' springs to mind. I will keep plugging away. Anyway thanks again for taking the time to reply.

Dietary change and not for the better

I recently changed to a largely organic diet with no wheat or gluten and little or no dairy product. My legs are weaker and my night time has changed utterly. Before the dietary change I would normally get at least 5 hours in bed without getting up to the toilet and sometimes up to 8 or 9. now I am ...

Re: dental health

I don't know any of you guys. Doctors differ and patients die. To my way of thinking I would change doctors if I had a bad experience with one rather than malign the entire profession. If I had a number of the same 'bad' diagnoses I would tend to think that they can't all be wrong. Finally we should...

Re: Gilenya and increased frequency of urination?

Hi Julie, I have been on Gilenya for 12 months and never experienced anything like that. Must be really awkward. Have you made any dietary changes recently that may have interacted with Gilenya?

Re: Accessibility in Ireland

Thanks to all who voted and spread the word. There are 160+ views and no comments. Do people think that the idea is a good one or bad. If bad why? I'd love to know. I realise that it is only Ireland at the moment but could it have global appeal? I'd love to read your comments. PM if you prefer not t...

Serrapeptase

I have read some entries here on serrapeptase and I was wondering whether anyone has current experiences to share? Any benefits, side effects and how long before you noticed changes also how long you have been taking it.
