Multiple Sclerosis Is A Terrible Grind And I Hate It

I have had this dreadful disease since 2001 which started with very mild symptoms and at the time only got an unconfirmed diagnosis.  I didn't think it was such a bad thing and wondered what the big deal was until just before xmas 2007 when the symptoms got way worse and I had to take quite abit of time off work.  Things have progressed to where I don't feel like I have a life now.  I don't go out because it is too hard and I drag my arse out of bed every morning to get to work. My symptoms are effected by external things - the sun, the wind, the cold, the heat, stress, I can't get away from them.  Somedays I find it hard to have a reason to carry on.  My symptoms are: most of my head feels numb which carrys on down my neck and into my arm, I get a terrible tingling sensation along with aching and pain in my left arm and hand.  It has just started to effect my right hand. I have opticneuritis in my right eye which was my good eye!!!  I also get tingling in my legs.  There are other symptoms as well but I would be here all day listing them.

Hey Kimberilyc,<br />

No, it wasn't hard to get them removed, but you need to go to a holistic practitioner to take proper precautions. Contact DAMS (Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions) and they will send you a packet as well as their newsletter with addresses of holistic dentists in your area. Mine cost about $1000 for 3, but I didn't have insurance. I don't know if your insurance will cover it, but I doubt it. You may be covered if you take a urine polyphyrin test to show mercury levels. You are also going to need to chelate to get the mercury out of your brain and tissues. Andrew Cutler, PhD wrote a book about his amalgam illness and recovery. He was a chemist at Princeton, and developed a protocol for chelating mercury. <br />

Hello! My comment is related to a post by KRILLOIL. I actually have 7 silver fillings. I am 39 now, and got these fillings when I was 16. So back then they used silver. Anyway, I was wondering, was it hard to get the silver fillings removed? Would my dental insurance cover that? Because I haven't gotten diagnosed with MS, but I have all the symptoms. Since about 12 yrs ago, I get anything from periods of extreme tightening in my torso area, fuzzy visin in one eye, or a floppy leg that makes me limp. I always have numb-tingling hands and feet, which I am used to.. But this current spell is really anoying. I am numb from the waist down, and my upper legs are sooo tight. The spells last a few weeks then go away. I am always tired and fatigued during the bad spells, it is hard to get up for work .My first spell was double vision for 2 weeks. That was freaky and I was glad when it went away. But if all these would go away if I got my fillings removed, I would be so happy. Thankyou for any feedback.

Hey, do you have silver fillings? Mine caused 70 symptoms of MS: from ataxia, numbness of my toes, "a burning brain," loss of peripheral vision, depression/anxiety/mania, memory loss, chronic fatigue, chronic sinusitis, bladder infections, and a host of other symptoms. <br />

This is because silver fillings are 50-70% mercury, which is released into the body as ethylmercury vapor. Anywhere from 3-29 micrograms of mercury are released by these fillings every day. The symptoms of MS and mercury poisoning are effectively the same. I got them removed and most of my symptoms are gone, I just have to spend a few years getting rid of the residual mercury from my tissues. Believe me or not, I honestly don't care. It's not going to be the case for everyone. I just know it worked for me. <br />

Also if you've been exposed to a lot of thimerosal from vaccines, this could have triggered it. Also the government is now admitting that Hepatitis B vaccines can trigger demyelinating diseases. Check out the FDA's website if you want to confirm there is mercury in vaccines. No level is safe, considering it's more toxic than lead and arsenic. It is the most toxic non-radioactive substance known to man. I have nothing to gain telling people this, only the hope that someone can recover the way I did. It's my hope.

This is why I say just laugh.
