"My sister has PPMS and she is getting help with the LDN. She has had no new
progression of symptoms since she began LDN back in November. I would also go so
far as to say that she has also had symptom relief. She no longer runs to the
bathroom multiple times during the night. She sleeps for 8 to 9 hours a night, her
bowels problems have cleared up. She no longer has muscle spasms in her legs and
feet. The numbness/tingling sensation in her feet are gone.

She was diagnosed in May 03. She declined extremely rapidly and her doctor told her
she had one of the most aggressive forms of MS he had ever seen. She was
hospitalized twice in three months. Her results from the LDN were not immediate but
she had been on extremely large doses of steroids daily as well as 11 IVs of
solumendrol over a 4 month period. It probably took three months on the LDN to see
results but that could be because it took that long to get all the steroids out of
her system.

She only takes LDN, her daily supplements, and a small dose (600 mg/day) of neurotin
for neuropathic pain.

Maybe its because she started the LDN so soon after her diagnosis (6 months) that
she has been helped and her progression has stopped."
