MS drug trial 'a fiasco' – and NHS paid for it

"Report shows that the drugs failed to delay the onset of disability in patients – defined as walking with a stick or using a wheelchair – and may even have hastened it."

Is Temporo Mandibular Joint Dysfunction & Skeletal Asymmetry causing ME/CFS and MS?

During the year 2000 a dentist came across an MS patient..........
"Still hoping for a miracle, I continued to buy health magazines. My luck was about to change when an advertisement caught my eye. Terms such as ‘cranial symmetry’ struck a cord with me. I phoned and spoke to the practitioner and described my symptoms. He said that he had read a lot about MS but he had never seen an MS patient and was keen to see if his hypothesis would work for this condition. He would be in a position to say if his criteria would be helpful after he had examined me.

In short, I took the plunge and flew from Belfast to London. In spite of niggling doubts, I was hopeful. I desperately wanted this to work. My fears that this was another wild goose chase were overwhelming. Nothing could have been further from the truth."

L'hermitte's sign - a rapid resolution

Lhermitte's sign conventional explanation:
"sometimes called the Barber Chair phenomenon, is an electrical sensation that runs down the back and into the limbs. In many patients, it is elicited by bending the head forward. It can also be evoked when a practitioner pounds on the posterior cervical spine while the neck is flexed; this is caused by involvement of the posterior columns. The sign suggests a lesion of the dorsal columns of the cervical cord or of the caudal medulla."
Please read the post to find a possible cure.

No unread posts Ataxia

Older patients are increasingly diagnosed into Ataxia often commonly described as a neuro degenerative disorder. Many patients who do not have the hereditary forrm of this condition or who have not acquired it through a serious accident actually have a disorder of the cerebellum caused by dental, jaw and skeletal asymmetry. Correcting these goes a long way into improving the quality of a patients life.

To avoid a diagnosis of MS seek out a Symmetry evaluation

It is imperative that a symmetry evaluation is obtained as soon as any of the many symptoms on these pages develop. Please read about the experience of one patient:
"I knew that there was something definitely wrong with my body but there was no one at that stage, who agreed with me. I felt as though I was alone in front of a wall of figures endowed with expertise and authority who were all saying that I was wrong. From my perspective, the central fact, the central reality in all of this, was that no one trusted me; my family and friends tended to trust others--the voices of medical authority and knowledge."

The diagnosis of MS

Often, the merry go round which precedes a diagnosis into MS, patients are relieved when they finally get diagnosed into a disease or a syndrome no matter how dire the outlook.
One patients' relief:"The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis was for me a watershed--one of those events that radically transforms experience both past and future. It illuminated what had gone before and changed the terms of what was to follow. As an event, the diagnosis itself had limited meaning; it did not change my physical reality. Its importance lay in its power to transform the past, present, and future. The power of a name to alter reality is enormous"
Every case sounds like a long drawn out haggling at a souk market before the final price is agreed; before a final frightening diagnosis is revealed to the patient. Please share your story here.

Optic Neuritis & Uveitis

Patients who are eventually diagnosed into 'MS' initially have very many symptoms ranging from headaches at a young age to IBS/IBD neck pain. fatigue etc. They may have even been classed into CFS initially but later go onto develop eye symptoms. When this occurs the physicians order an MRI scan during which plaques may be found in the brain. This finally leads to a diagnosis of 'Multiple Sclerosis'.
If this is how you were first diagnosed it will be interesting to hear some of your stories.

CCSVI

CCSVI - (Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency) is a term used to describe compromised flow of blood in the veins draining the central nervous system.

During 2008 – 2009, the renowned Italian Doctor Paolo Zamboni published a theory purporting that MS is caused by chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI).

Auto-immune disease

The pharmaceutical explanation of Multiple sclerosis (MS) is:
"MS is an inflammatory disease in which myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged thus affecting the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively.
Truth or a gross misrepresentaion? Please read the postings.
The fact of the matter is:
There are three big problems for the constituency that believe to their very core in the scientific method:
A. You don't know what causes MS
B. You haven't found any methods for rolling it back
C. You haven't found a cure.

Inclined Bed Therapy

The incredible dedication of Andrew Fletcher brought us this concept. On his website he quotes:
"This subject is certainly worth a read to understand how simply tilting a bed has transformed the lives of many people with serious and supposedly irreversible medical conditions.

Stem Cell Therapy

Please read a journal of one person's experience with Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for multiple sclerosis. It is rather a touching story well worth reading. I hope we can inspire some other recipients of stem cell therapy to contribute also.

The human and financial cost of MS

Could someone do some research and start a topic on this subject.
The costs are Drugs, hospital costs, physician costs, the cost of lost health and future, the cost of financing the upkeep of families where the bread winner has MS and is unable to work. There could be an individualised cost and there could be a cost to a whole country.

No unread posts Successful treatments

Conventionally, Multiple sclerosis is a disease that impacts the brain and spinal cord that controls all bodily functions. The exact cause of MS is unknown, but we do know that something triggers the immune system to attack the brain and spinal cord. The resulting damage to myelin sheath of the nerve fibers, disrupts signals to and from the brain. This causes unpredictable symptoms such as numbness, tingling, mood changes, memory problems, pain, fatigue, blindness and/or paralysis.
Or is this a complete misdiagnosis of TMJD patients?
