I was diagnosed with MS at the age of 28 via MRI scans, spinal fluid analysis and observable conditions. I immediately performed research on my best options for health and then began the Dr. Roy Swank diet amongst other approaches. I experienced results similar to those that Dr. Swank observed in his 33-year study relevant to the neurological grade at which I started the diet (Swank and Dugan 72-73).
My main complaints years before the diagnosis of MS at the age of 28 included headaches, clicking jaw, crowded mouth leading to removal of all 4 wisdom teeth, ‘concrete-like’ jaw, almost daily headaches and migraines.
My main intermittent complaints leading directly up to and after my MS diagnosis included Lhermitte’s sign, numbness on the face, loss of sight in one eye, spasticity, general limb weakness, dizziness, impacts to my cognitive function, severe fatigue, gradual decline of my sense of balance, and a host of other issues too numerous to mention that continued on and off for 15 years.
