Been a reader of the forums for ages but seeing made this post made register as I was keen to get across what Ive found.
I was diagnosed in 2008 but had been having relapses since 2000, with two episodes being seriously debillitating. I was fairly depressed TBH before the diagnosis but I knew what was coming.
But when it came, and my neurologist delivered my diagnosis waiting for me to break down I felt strange relief. I wasnt gonna die, these werent mini strokes, this was a known conidition.
I got proactive and started looking at trends, research, diets etc and I am now settled on the following
2g Omega 3 per day (DPA & EHA) - Thats 2 * triple strength Capsules
400ug Folic Acid - This aids B12 absorbtion
4000 IU Vit D per day - more if its winter, less maybe if there’s loads of sun
100mg Alpha lipoic acid
Now - Bear in mind pre 2008 i was having at least 2 relapses per year, often minor weird ones - i never really complained too hard about the numb bum cheek, sometimes realy incovenient - my face going numb on the right side for 2 months was a real pain, occassionally awful - unable to dress, feed myself etc.
I have had no relapse since my diagnosis. Thats 5 years ago now. To be fair i have also cut most saturated fats from my diet, and eat lots of fruit and veg, and stress has nearly no part in my life anymore - i am without doubt happier than ive ever been, and probably happier than most people i know.
So ^^^^^ Do this and be well - its not a life sentance, for me it was my mortality thrust right into my face which is quite frankly (hence the username) a real wake up call.
