what makes you think this is MS?
is this the only symptom you have?
Isuspect you have a nutritional deficiency, do you have stress,do you drink plenty of water & how is your diet, do you eat salads & vegetables regularly & how rejuvinating are your sleeps.

i've had this & alot of symptoms of MS & now hardly have any! Where as my sister is not interested in any sort of nutrition & her symptoms were getting worse until she decided to try some of what i have done, trouble is she thinks she knows it all & doesn't so she will not gain the full benefit.
If you would like me to try to help you , be more specific in reply to my questions. you should be able to get what you need in nutrients if you can establish what nutrient/s is associated with the symptoms. I can help you get started with this if you are willing!

How long have you personally been dealing with MS?

You also might want to look into "low dose naltrexone." It seems that many MS people have done remarkably well with this. (Look for an MS blog that is discussing that topic for further input.) I take it at bedtime for fibromyalgia and I no longer have any of the symptoms affiliated with it.

I'll explain how it works, although I am not a health professional so I may get this wrong.

I believe what happens is that the low dose naltrexone temporarily blocks your opioid receptors. So your body thinks that something is trying to block its endorphins and it begins to produce more than you were producing before. Somehow this helps not only people with autoimmune diseases but also cancer and many other maladies.

My girlfriend takes it for Ankylosing Spondylitis. She also has gone with a no-gluten diet and has control of her symptoms too. She also has restless leg syndrome. I have no idea what that is, but this helps with that also. Could that be what you have? Wikipedia has a lot of info on this.

I believe that the patent has long gone away so there is not profit in producing this for the drug companies. So the only way you will probably hear about it is through word of mouth or blogs. Just make sure you get a really good compounding pharmacy to put it together because certain fillers like calcium carbonate will not allow it to work properly. I found my pharmacist on the website dedicated towards this subject. He is in Florida. Best of luck!

If you do a search on restless leg syndrome and MS you will find that some MS people do have that too. By the way, restless legs can also be restless arms. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restless_legs _syndrome

Some people have been helped by taking LDN (low dose naltrexone) for the restless legs too. One blog of a person with MS said that the LDN helped her most, it seemed, when she did something during the day to raise her endorphins, such as exercise.

I don't have MS so I can't speak to that directly. I just know that the LDN has helped my best friend and myself with the two different autoimmune diseases that we each have. Best of luck!

zigmyster, in hind sight all my life up until the last yr or two, there are a lot of things that doctors don't know or won't tell us & after going to many doctors & specialists & finding all they want to do is manage the symptoms & not try to rejuvinate i got feed up with hearing theres nothing we can do, so i started to research into nutrition & i am living proof of being able to rejuvinate my health directly via nutrition.
Take water for example, drink too much of it & we end up making our symptoms speed up in severity as we are also flushing a lot of the minerals that is needed for the correct functioning of the body. Another is calcium, take the wrong type or form & it will stop us from absorbing other nutrients & calcium it's self.Calcium is needed for the relief of restless leg syndrome, but taking it on it's own is mostly fruitless!
