Re: question about neuropathy

I have had my D-3 levels tested several times in the past 2 years of having MS but not my zinc or magnesium levels. I realize also that I have not been actually told of my readings in these tests. I have just gone by the lab reports and my dr. saying that the levels are all ` o.k.` But in the future...

Re: Tongue stimulation study shows promise in helping MS

I don`t think that there has been any updates since we first heard about this `tongue stimulator` that Montel Williams tried out to help with his MS symptoms. I tried e-mailing the University of Wisconsin directly as well as Montel Williams and I have never received a reply. Perhaps when Montel reve...

Re: MS Pain

I am currently on 4000 mg. vit.d./day and the dr. has me on B-12 injections every 2 weeks for 5 months to see if that will help also. I have to date only had 3 inj. You know I don`t actually know the numbers for my vit. D levels since I am only told by my dr. that it is `o.k`. But perhaps I shall st...

I can remember one product with Turmeric in it, Omega 3 pills ( I already take Omega 3-6-9) but the sales clerk said that was not good and unfortunately I ...

Re: MS Pain

Jimmylegs---you will be ahead of me on this one since I could not find a pharmacy today that sold Magnesium Glyconate, only elemental magnesium. The pharmaist has to order it for me. The strength will be 500 mg./pill and it will take a few days to come in to the store. It is sold under the name MAGL...

Re: MS Pain

`Jimmylegs` Thanks again for your input. The problem I always have with taking these supplements is what is the correct dosage for myself to take.. I am going to get magnesium glycinate today and give it another try. I have elemental magnesium at home.

Re: MS Pain

`msmything` You and I sound like we have similar pain problems with NERVES gone haywire! I have tried so many different things to CALM the nerves with no pain relief. I even had the CCSVI surgery almost exactly 1 year ago and no pain relief either. Can I ask how much magnesium you take and is there ...
