Hello all! Thank you for taking a moment to read my post. I decided to register for this group as a way to find specific answers and not spend my free time caught up in “google” searches.

I have been a bit concerned about some symptoms for the past 6 or 7 months, and after speaking with a neurologist have finally made an appointment to be assessed.

What I can say is that I feel almost 90% better when following a solid vegan diet with vigorous exercise and meditation. Almost immediately upon consuming something like pizza or a processed food, I am miserable.

Questions are:

1) If I simply eat well and exercise, do I even need to see a doctor?

2) The symptoms are transient, I prefer to eat well and not visit physicians with symptoms – does anyone think I should eat poorly so the physician is more likely to notice symptoms?

3) Will the physician need to know all symptoms through time, or just current issues?

I know that sounded rather silly, but I hate going to doctors – and really do not want to be looked at like I am simply experiencing some form of “anxiety”.

Have a wonderful day and thanks again for reading!

Wow. A like minded person! I hate doctors!!! I see the need and all that but I hate needing to go; hate the wasted time; hate the whole scene!

Eating well, exercising and positive thinking really can work wonders!!

Go the the neuro and say what you've said here. Don't sabotage your great health habits just to create symptoms. My MS symptoms are not transient. They came and stayed. Seems like good news for you.

Best of luck to you! Keep up the good work.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

I too hate doctors & hate the bills that come along with going to see them. My only advice is don't ignore your body. I was having muscle spasms a few months ago and started on some vitamins. The spasms went away so I thought see no big deal. Then a few weeks ago I developed double vision. I went to the doctor & was sent for an MRI. The double vision went away & was replaced by dibilitating dizziness. Then 2 weeks ago today I had my first appointment with the neurologis. It is MS and I have a large number of leasons in my brain. I wish I would have gone sooner. So my adivice is if you think you need to go to the doctor you probably. should.
