Im a newbie and appreciate any advice please.... My two brothers both have M.S. One has lots of symptoms that look like Pernicious Anemia too which our Father had. His last B12 test looked good because he was spraying a supplement of B12 under the tongue and they said he had plenty. ( I haven't seen the paperwork) I've asked him to stop that, we will wait a few weeks and try to get him tested again. I don't hold out much hope for a doctor to perform all the correct tests and treat him if I'm right in my investigations.
I'm reading Sally Pacholok's book at the present. His limbs don't work on one half of his body and are withered now, he has difficulty using the hand on that side and I was wondering if he could try B12 patches as he couldn't possibly inject himself, does anyone know if they are any good. He is talking of going into a wheelchair now and is very weak and poorly... I haven't listed all his symptoms as I know you are all familiar with them.
I am going into the doctors with him next time, using a wheelchair as he's too weak to walk up the steps/ramp on 31st Aug, wish me luck to get the right tests....I know which to ask for thanks to this site and Sally's book. I'm hoping the B12 patches will help him if I can't get the correct help.
