Hi Chris

Has he had steroids yet? I that’s all they can give us in terms of getting better and that’s whay it’s a waiting game. They won’t give us DMDs as they might so more harm than good apparently!

Christine,

I just thought of something, I’m not alone in taking LDN (Low dose naltrexone), it definitely seems to have some benefits for me and I’m guessing you and Mick will probably want to try searching your options!

Here’s the website:

It’s not a miracle cure but it seems to have a few unexpected good improvements for me. Have a good look at the website and if you want to try getting it prescribed then there’s a pack you can print to show your GP.

Let me know what you think

Hello Christine, no wonder you and hubby are proper fed up!

It is rare that someone goes downhill as quickly as Mick has.

Being offered Macmillan nurses is also quite rare with PPMS.

I have also seen many neuros and have had the run around for years.

You need and have a right to get to the bottom of whats going on.

Could you speak to Micks GP about it, with his permission of course, or they wont speak to you.

I feel for you both.

luv Pollx
