This is a follow up post about
my experiences with LDN.
My MS predominately affects the left side of my body.
After 2 weeks on 3 mg dose my left leg became nice and supple and bendy at night (after I took the naltrexone). I could lie on my side for the first time in more than 5 years. But by 7 am it was stiff & inflexible again.
After 6 weeks on 3mg of LDN I notice that my left leg is supple for longer. At about
10.30 am today I knelt and cleaned some stains off the carpet. I was also been able to kneel and get something my dog wanted from under the couch. Usually the spasticity in the leg tips me forward when I try to kneel and it is a real battle of wills between the stiff leg and me.
I am also noticing that the dexterity in my left hand is improving. I am typing easier as the left hand is straightening (the last three fingers had become bent and clawlike) and is more flexible.
Side effects - I have to be careful to avoid getting constipated but al long as I have a couple of drinks in the day and be sure to eat some fruit & some dried fruit all is good.
Otherwise I feel fantastic and hopeful of more improvements.
Will post again if there is anything interesting to report.
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995. Baclofen pump since 2008.
