I'll have to spend some time with these folks, and see if I can determine their credibility, but it's a real intersting site. Thanks for posting it!

Hi Uppitycats,
I also am reading this site with a curious and questioning position. I would, too, like to determine their credibilty and have been checking up on it with our MS Society. I did however find the section on MS and the workplace very interesting especially for those of us that still work outside the home or are going back to work after a bad flareup or a primary presentation of the disease. It is very important for our co-workers to realize that what they see of us does not always tell the whole story nor does their interpretation of our symptons mean that we have to endure rumours of drunkness or of not being in control of emotions. While we have a right to our privacy as our disease progresses it is not always in our best interest to stay silent. Most people are very grateful when you inform them with the facts of this disease. I especially find humour helpful. I remember once when I was at work and lost my balance and fell onto a coworker's lap and I quickly laughed and said "Oh, were you sitting there?" It made an embarrassing moment more bearable and we still laugh about it. Let me know what you find out in your neck of the world as I really would like to know. I will keep checking here. Dale

Yeah, full disclosure really does help, sometimes. I've talked to too many people who found out that their co-workers were thinking they were on drugs, or drunk (or hung over) because of some of their gait problems, or cognitive difficulties...when in fact they were just having a bad day.

Anyway..I've been busy with some stuff in "real life" so haven't been back there since a first read, but I'll continue to pursue it.

Hi All,

I was diagnosed with MS in May of 2003. I have been on LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) as treatment since 2004. It helped me to stop my progression and got me to where I am today. I was on the verge of having to quit my job when I started on it. It is supposed to work by tricking the body into making extra endorphins. It appears to do that but in the process it causes your body to also make more cortisol. The reason I'm telling you this is that I found out in 2004 that I had low adrenal function. I know that the LDN did not cause the adrenal disease but it gave me a clue to help me find out that it was adrenal disease that was causing my MS symptoms. The reason it had been missed is that doctors almost always test for cortisol levels only in the morning. Mine was always normal in the morning but droppped sharply by noon and stayed that way all day. If you have been diagnosed with MS or suspect you may have MS and you have fatigue, please get the all day saliva test to rule out adrenal disease. Once you get diagnosed with MS it is difficult if not impossible to get that diagnosis reversed. Adrenal disease is treatable and although it can be serious for some, it is easily managed compared to MS.

Sincerely,

 

Penny

ACP - I wonder why the moderator did not say anything about it. I see you are a new member and your name seems to indicate you have other reasons why you may not like his posting??? Just curious

Sorry Kim, I guess that was you who replied, but under a different name?? Anyway, I dod not read the entire site info, but it doesn't seem to be looking for money, so I wonder why we cannot offer interesting info to eachother when its not someone trying to seel something ( as far as I could see anyway)

Hi Jena,

Posting links to sites for general information is perfectly ok! ACP is a site owner and was advertising his site which is against the rules of this forum.
