have to echo molly and erica,

a youtube video trudi put on this forum from an MS patient on LDN was truly amazing.

when i convinced my rheumy to let me try LDN as he was balking at anything past nsaids, he had never heard of it and i was his first patient to be allowed to try it. when i reported how it helped my body clear the inflammation from it and wanted to renew my script, well, about a year after he prescribed it to me, he now prescribes it to about 3 or 4 other patients as well.

the things that helped convince my doctor:
1. the info off the sites molly and erica linked stating how safe it is.
2. abstracts off of pubmed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/) from the journal articles describing the clinical studies. i was looking at those regarding crohn's and other inflammatory arthritis. but here's some for MS, doctors like the scientific literature more than websites or so is my experience, though the nice thing is that the clinical studies are discussed on the LDN website(s). anyway:




Spondyloarthropathy, HLAB27 negative
Humira (still methylprednisone for flares, just not as often. Aleve if needed, rarely.)
LDN/zanaflex/flector patches over SI/ice
vits C, D. probiotics. hyaluronic acid. CoQ, Mg, Ca, K.
walk, bike
no dairy (casein sensitivity), limited eggs, limited yeast (bread)
