I have had ms since 10. With some sort of attack every 10 - 15 years, which lasted 1-6weeks but then I would be fine. No medication & had a good life. At 45 my mom died and within a month I became SPMS. I also went around trying to find a diagnosis until finally I went back to my GP saying I think this is MS.
Medicate with wine? Why not, as long as it helps and it causes no other problems. For some years I controlled pain/spasticity with cannabis cookies & never had any side effects. I totally believe that you know your body the best and that each person needs to do their own research. I now have a baclofen pump but recently have started taking low dose naltrexone and feel really good. My spasticity (in both torso and left leg) has improved a lot as has the dexterity in my left hand which is very encouraging.
LDN has been used successfully in the US for 10 years, it is cheap and has no side effects. LDN is also meant to stop the progression of MS which is the main reason I am trying it though I need to take it for a few years before I can report on this.
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995. Baclofen pump since 2008.
