MS HISTORY PRIOR TO INCLINED THERAPY

Hello dear scientist Andrew Fletcher! I am glad that there is such really good scientist like you.
I live in the capital of Azerbaycan, Baku . I have had ms for 12 years , I have headaches 12 years on left side of head, my left eye sight is worse and I have double vision and paresia , my right side of body is weak, I can't walk more than 200 meters, I have some sensory loss, experience spasms, dizzyness and loss of balance. I have trouble writing due to weakness in hand and nocturia, visiting the bathroom frequently at night. My body tends to overheat, I experience lethargy and fatigue, Lhermitte's syndrome, and have erectile dysfunction, digestive problems

I am writing to you because I read about your inclined bed on 15 02 2010.

MY HEALTH HISTORY AND CURRENT PROBLEMS :--
Provide as much detail as possible in your own words at the start, in order to quantify any changes, which may occur during the study period.

Copy and paste information from your previous posts on www.thisisms.com/ftopict-8535.html (or other forums and websites) including post dates.

Please include any of the following that relate to your particular circumstances and delete those which do not:
Pain, aches, lethargy, spasm, tremor, vision, feeling cold in bed, blood pressure, cold feet or hands, dreaming, morning paralysis, swollen limbs, blocked sinuses, Irritability, fidgety limbs in bed, ability to maintain body temperature, poor circulation, lethargy, depression, loss of movement in limbs, snoring, poor sleep, sleeping disorders, breathing difficulties,
poor quality, finger/toe nails, absence of half moons on nails, hair condition, varicose veins, leg ulcers, loss of skin sensitivity, taste, smell, problems with balance. liver spots, old scar tissue, sensory loss, headaches, pins and needles, night sweats, cramp, bladder control.
Night time bladder urgency, Urine infections, bowel function, spasm, memory loss, backache, mouth infections, ulcers, scoliosis, psoriasis, exzema any other not listed
It would be very helpful if you could film a video diary, or take photographs of any leg ulcers, scars, finger/toe nails, swollen limbs, skin, hair conditions or varicose veins, as these conditions have already shown remarkable improvements in several participants. Video and Photographs
add weight to reports, giving credence and support to your journal

Saving nail clippings and hair samples, dated for later comparisons is a useful analysis tool. Saving urine samples prior to tilting the bed for comparison after I.T. in first week will prove useful for you to make a comparison and comment.

PROGRESS REPORTING:

02/16/2010. I raised my bed on blocks to 6 inches higher at the head end.
From the first day I felt something strange in my head, like headaches on whole of my head, I had pain in stomach and gases, I felt like the blood was boiling in my legs, I had bad appetite.
Next day I feel myself much better.
I can see better, walk better, my balance is better, my right leg has become stronger ,my hand too , my feeling of being too hot has improved, I go for toilet oftener ,sorry for my word -even my erection problem has become better and still is the same,

I don't get tired during the days anymore, I can now write much better. I read letters from those who have had the liberation procedure and notice they report the same improvements--headaches, pain in stomach etc.

02/23/2010 I thought that it will be continue for a long time but it was till ,after my dinner -meat on oil with rice.
The day before ,on 02/22/ 2010 I raised my bed another 2 inches and it became 8 inches higher at the head end. Maybe this was the reason I felt much worse , I don't know?
Give me your advise please .What I can do else to walk better ?
Now I don't have Lhermitte's syndrome,
The relations with my wife much better (you know what I mean).May be this is because of changing blood circulation?
Now I don't eat meat only fish, vegetables, 2 Portions in a day. Is this why I feel better?
I am preparing for liberation in Bulgarian hospital next year, what you think about that?
In general I feel better then before. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ANDREW ! WITH GOOD REGARDS MR COOL.

At some point, ‘preferably after Four months’, during the study you may wish to revert back to horizontal rest in order to determine the differences.

Please record any comparisons that are observed.
REVERTING BACK TO FLAT JOURNAL TEXT

SLEPT FLAT ON (MM/DD/YYYY) UNTIL (MM/DD/YYYY) AND FOUND THESE DIFFERENCES:--
(Repeat Entry each time you revert back to flat)

Continue reporting using the same format, preferably once every month so that we can compare progress with other people sleeping Inclined.[/size]
