Multiple problems

I'm diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and Meniere's Disease. At one point I was "numb" feeling from my chest to my feet. I was put on Sulumedral for 3 days IV. I got pregnant and I was symptom free. After the birth I began to have a dark line in my left eye. Treatment again and all was well. I got treatment again IV and it was all gone. It has now been 5 years. Last year I had a bad tooth infection and at the same time had ringing in my ear and sensitivity to sound. I got an ear profusion and it helped but I still have this ringing in my ear. In the 80's I use to fog my horse farm with pesticides 3 days a week. I never covered my mouth or body. We had a “coal furnace” for heat. I get a terrible taste and my tongue gets thick if I am close to paint or pesticides. I took a heavy metals test which was one time "pee" in the cup and a blood test which came back negative. Thyroid was negative. MRI's have been the same. Where do I go?

Plain blood and urine tests are worthless unless the patient was exposed in the last couple days before the test. After that heavy metals are stored inside cells and are not detectible except with a challenge with a chelating agent to bring them out of the cells to be measured in the urine. It is a worthwhile direction to go as there is a lot of similarity between the symptoms of MS and heavy metal overload and I believe each condition makes the other worse as well. Before testing all dental metal must be removed. You need the right doc to help you through all this and you will not find that doc in mainstream medicine as you have already discovered. As to Meniere's, mainstream medicine is a total failure. Highly skilled acupuncturists do much better, but again finding the right acupuncturist can be a real challenge. There are a lot of not-so-skilled acupuncturists out there. Be sure to write back if you have further questions.

It will be impossible for me to get the dental work done. I have numerous bridges and the silver is still in the teeth that are ground down underneath them. That would mean the permanent bridges would have to come off and they are so old I doubt if they would be able to get them off without them cracking. I cannot afford this. What about the B12 and folic acid shot? Did the acupuncture thing and it did not work. I don't know a good Dr. from a bad one.

Dentist who are not skilled at dentistry without metals (and that is 99+%) will always tell you how impossible it is to do this or that. That does not mean it is impossible, just that it is impossible for them. The expense is another matter of course and usually comments like yours reflect where on the priority list such a thing actually exists. Even once all the metal is removed and replaced you are still facing steps 2 and 3: (1) testing and treatment for the residual metal burden and (2) the SanPharma Protocol to restore the immune system. If you were in Santa Rosa, I could send you to a real acupuncturist, but that is just wishful thinking. I would say travel, but you would have to do it many times. As to B12 and folic acid, that would help if you are deficient. I have no way of knowing that. Often metal overload damages the gut and makes absorption difficult and in some people this stand behind B12 and folic acid deficiency.

I have an MRI scheduled Tues. If the lesions are the same as last year's MRI then am I really dealing with MS? I was bitten by a deer tick and had the whole bull’s eye thing and the doctor pulled it out of my skin after being in there for 3 days. He gave me Amoxicillin for 10 days. This was in 1994. I have had 2 tests taken since then and they were negative. I had this severe tooth infection from a broken root from a root canal. I was on antibiotics for 5 months. The FDA recalled the tissue that was put in my mouth. This preparation left infection in my mouth and then the tooth in front of that got infected also. I lost 2 of my bottom teeth. All this time the ringing in my ear got worse. I really have lost so much faith in the medical profession. I am really at a loss. I train horses and riders for a living. I live a very active life. I need all the balance and strength I can get. I don’t want sympathy, just someone to understand where I am at.

If I were you, I would not focus too much on distinguishing between MS and heavy metal overload or other conditions either, but do what is necessary to minimize symptoms. You have now brought up the possibilities of cavitations and chronic Lyme disease, both condition which can potentiate and even sometimes mimic the symptoms of MS. You really need to be in the hands of a competent doc to help you deal with all this. I don't blame you for loosing faith in mainstream medicine - many of us docs have also lost faith in it. Nevertheless, there are docs out there who can help you sort this out. Read these articles:

Thank you for the information. I have my MRI tomorrow so we will compare it to last year's. If there are no more lesions on my brain then is MS what the doctor should be treating? I have had an MRI each year and it has stayed the same. I am afraid he is going to want me to start taking this Avonex shot once a week.

You are not my patient, I have never met you, I have not seen your records, so I cannot venture to tell you how to proceed. I stand by my preveious comments regarding heavy metals. As to the diagnosis of MS, non-progerssion does not rule out the diagnosis. If there is a medicine which can help MS, at least in some people, and if the diagnosis of MS is relatively certain, and if the side-effects are not dangerous or significant, in your place I would be tempted to take it.
