Thank you for the information regarding the book, I will definitely check it out. Most of my conversations with my MD’s, will result in same responses such as “getting older” and either link the complaints to my varicose veins, my extra weight, or think I am depressed. I actually have had 2 doctors and some of my nursing friends mention MS, but I do not recall any family members with MS. I have had varicose veins that bother me, and believe that I had Peripheral Vascular problems. But the problems walking, the numb, painful and dysfunctional feet drive me insane. I have always been energetic, and I love working. I’m not a person to sit. If nutrition will ease the symptoms, I will make whatever drastic changes I need to feel better and live a normal life.
