From this study (13 months ago):
Although my MS has progressed and l currently use a wheelchair, it has stabilized as l exercise everyday and honestly believe more in supplements than l do in medicine as they have minimal side effects and just hope and pray that a cure for MS will be found one day

- I have ms with some outbreaks of andgiodema in my mouth. i can't figure out what causes this. i have been tested by an allergist for the basic foods and molds.he came up with nothing.
This issue has been going on since June 2012.I have been tested for all basic allergies. Kept a food diary of all the foods i had the day of and before a breakout.came up no causes for an angeiodema. Can my ms have something to do with this. What can I do.
- My appendix was removed during a c-section when i was 24. i was diagnosed with ms at the age of 37. could there be any correlation between these events?
