Re: Best Bet Diet from movie Living Proof

I'm not arguing against any of the MS diets. I've tried most of them. I'm just pointing out that they are difficult to stick with. My wife found a gluten-free spaghetti which is pretty good. But the gluten-free pizza we tried was not quite as tasty as cardboard. I don't think the diets worked for me...

Re: Best Bet Diet from movie Living Proof

By all means try any diet you like. They can't hurt you... except maybe for starvation. You will probably find that they eliminate most foods you like. For me the gluten-free part eliminates pizza, spaghetti, sandwiches, macaroni, toast, pancakes, waffles, french toast and most canned soups. The low...

Re: Do Noise and Crowds Affect You?

Loud noises don't bother me too much unless it's ear-piercing load. I don't like walking in crowds because my balance is really bad and I am afraid of being knocked over. For the record I have PPMS. Its been 22 years since the Dx. My self assessed EDSS score is 6.5. I don't take any of the DMDs, but...

Re: erectile disfunction

Erectile dysfunction is not much fun but Viagra might fix that for you. On the other hand if you don't have a sex drive maybe it's not a problem. Some folks with MS are paralyzed and bedridden. The problem you have doesn't sound nearly so bad. Remember the old adage; count your blessings. You can st...

Re: jimmylegs, Help Needed!

This may go without saying but it's been hot this summer. If you're not adequately air conditioned it could be making you feel much worse. I was feeling really weak today. Then I noticed it was 83F in the house because we shut off the A/C a few days ago and forgot to turn it back on. I turned it bac...

Re: Alcohol

I don't know how alcohol consumption affects your risk of getting MS. But if you already have MS and you have difficulty walking, alcohol will make it worse. No surprise there I guess.

Re: Trouble swallowing esophagus being pushed over?

I'm not a doctor or medical authority but I have had many conversations with people with MS and I've never heard of this being an MS issue. On the other hand MS is a strange disease and I suppose it's possible that it could cause such problems. I think you need to wait for the additional tests to de...

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

Are magnetosomes in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) as well as the blood? I recall a study done a few years ago. Scientists took CSF from MS patients and injected it into the brains of mice. The CSF from RRMS patients did nothing to the mice. But the mice that were injected with CSF from PPMS and SP...

Re: ‘Desatascador’ Device Video now posted!

Yesterday was the 2nd day without using the device. I slept better last night with little spasm trouble. It seems to me that the Desatascador is doing something but Maybe not what I want it to do. I'll give it another try but I'm going to use it early in the day, well before bedtime and see if that ...

Re: ‘Desatascador’ Device Video now posted!

I've been using the device for about 1 week now. There wasn't much happening for the first few days but for the last two nights the muscle spasms were really bad. It kept me awake for half the night. So I'm going to stop using it for a while and see if the spasm situation improves.

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

I hear the most vibration when The handle is facing away from me and the pin is pointing up. Should I use it in this position?

Question; if I take a few drops of my blood and float them on water should they be attracted to a magnet?
