Karlen, in 1995, I too was diagnosed with MS. My Neurologist ordered an MRI, which came back CLEAR, which surprised everyone.
Continuing to try and convince my I had MS, my Dr. said I was one of the 5% of people whose MS does not show up on MRIs.
After my "diagnosis", I was poking around in a junk store one day and found an article in a 1960 issue of "Life" magazine. It was written by a Doctor, and was about Aspartame.
I was in school that year, and the furnace was not working right so we'd all sit in class and freeze. When school would let out, I'd go back to the apt. and study and drink HOT COCOA, lacing it with ASPARTAME!!
I'd consume several cups over the course of the afternoon of study. SEVERAL.
When I read that article, I was just stunned. I IMMEDIATELY stopped all Aspartame consumption, and my symptoms ceased. At once.
My neurologist never even asked me what I was eating/drinking. He could see the crippling effects of MS, and that was all he looked at.
Using Aspartame will cause symptoms that will mimic MS, and that was what was happening to me.
Later on, I found that the inventor of Aspartame was horrified to find out that his product was being used for human consumption. He intended it for use in anti-freeze.
I've since realized too, that healthy people don't need Doctors or Drug companies. Why should they want us healthy?
