Research up on intestinal permeability Also known as "Leaky gut Syndrome" also read up on Candida / Yeast. All of this could be possibly related to your MS symptoms. There should be books on these subjects at your local library and some on the internet. I was suggest you visit an allergy doctor and find out if you are allergic to any foods or irritants because eating foods that you are allergic too can trigger a pain response. I have been researching this for years and I don't have any pain since I changed my diet. Its worth a shot..Check into it and see if it could be the reason for any symptoms you may have. Read alot of the websites on the subject to make sure you cover everything. Good luck and I hope you get better.

Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D too!
Primary pain is related to the demyelinating process itself. If you have not done so already, add vitamin B12,vitamin D along with others to your regimen.

Use Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D is known as the “sunshine vitamin”, and researchers have demonstrated that on average, people with myelin sheath degeneration are severely vitamin D deficient.

This may explain why myelin sheath damage is more prevalent in northern latitudes, or away from the equator where people get less sun exposure.

As well, myelin sheath degeneration is are lower in those populations who eat cold water fish, even in northern latitudes – cold water fish is a rich source of vitamin D.

Dr. William E. Code firmly believes that vitamin D supplementation is one of the key pieces in his” recovery puzzle”. As well, Dr. Perlmutter describes that vitamin D has been shown to completely prevent the development of a multiple sclerosis-like disease in mice.

When choosing a vitamin D supplement, be sure that it is vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol, which is the natural form of vitamin D (unlike vitamin D2 which is a synthetic and has 1000 IU of vitamin D). A liquid vitamin D supplement that has 5000 IU per serving is best, since liquid is fast absorbing.



Use Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is involved in the formation of the myelin sheath, and profound deficiencies of vitamin B12 have been found in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid of patients with demyelination. Vitamin B12 has a very important role in the formation and function of myelin. According to Dr. Perlmutter, vitamin B12 deficiency not only enhances the destruction of myelin during an exacerbation of symptoms, but it also compromises the ability of the body to repair the damaged myelin after the attack.

There can be a functional deficiency of vitamin B12 even though your blood tests show normal levels. A more accurate way to measure B12 levels is to test for the chemical homocysteine. If homocysteine is elevated, then B12 is considered to be functionally deficient, even if the blood levels show otherwise.

Also, ITA with bastionv. Leaky Gut syndrome, is a problem for many people living with MS and other autoimmune disorders. There are studies online that demonstrate the connection.

Thanks for your reply's. I think I had a really bad flu and it just took me a little longer to fight it off. I did go to Vitamin World and stock up on some vitamins that MS patients are typically low on natually. I bought Magnesium, Pottassium, Calcium and a good Multi Vitamin. Again, thank you for your responses. I am living in St. Thomas, USVI for a year and really don't feel comfortable with the doctors here so your help was much appreciated.
