I haven’t been diagnosed but over the last 10 years I’ve had some MS symptoms (nystagmus (wobbly eyes), tingling face, etc). I did the brown rice and beans diet for a month, lost tonnes of weight, nice. Then I saw this forum and the link to Dr Wahls video. So for the last five weeks I’ve followed the Paleo diet, almost to a tee, bar one black coffee per day and wine once a week.
Anyway I feel okay except… first my teeth really hurt, obviously not getting the calcium, and now even though I take a calcium supplement and drink almond milk, I do find sometimes they still hurt a bit. And I do wonder, if my teeth are sore, then my bones must be suffering too!?!
Also, I take supplements. For years it was just magnesium and thiamin which almost cured the nystagmus, two pills a day. no big deal. But then on reading some books about the Paleo diet, and talking to the woman in the health food shop, I upped this to include lots of the B vits, and now I am on about 5 pills a day. Not so many, except my mouth is permanently dry, I can’t stop drinking water. I think I might cut these pills down to one a week or so and get back to just two pills a day.
Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this.
I’m afraid I can’t tell you if the diet is ‘working’, as I didn’t really have any serious symptoms at the moment - except a numb foot which I still have but I think that might be something else.
Any comments gratefully received.
