I was diagnosed with MS end of 2004, the MRI showed an active golfball big lesion and numerous nonactive ones too. Their first suspicion was Marburg-Syndrom, later Balo-Syndrom and now my doctors think it's a case of MS not reported yet. I am very lucky, I do respond very good to steroids and the symptoms disappear kind of quickly. I used Avonex for 2 1/2 years and I stopped to see what would happen, after 6 month I had a relapse (went away with steroids) and another one, again 6 month later. Around that time I found Low Dose Naltrexone and I am taking this now since June 2008 and I am doing great . The only "disability" I had was a light limp (kept it from my first episode) , would occur after 30-40 min. power walking, but this is gone too, thanks to LDN.
It's helping so many people, most of them have much more problems than I ever had, when I read their stories about LDN, I thought this is too good to be true, but I am a true believer now, 17 month without a relapse !
Hope it will stay this way
