Tingly Feeling All Over With MS

I couldn't help but write today about my wife's experience at the Chiropractor.  We have been using Chiropractic for years to help with my wife's MS, and have seen miraculous results using it.  Yesterday she was struggling with stomach issues which she has struggled with off and on for years.  What's hard is knowing whether it has something to do with Multiple Sclerosis or it's just bad food.  She can become violently sick from a meal she eats regularly so we feel like it has something to do with the digestive problems that seem to be associated with her MS.  I say all of this to share something that happened today after her Chiropractic visit.

During her adjustment she began to tingle all over her body.  It's not unusual for an arm or leg or part of her body to tingle, but this was much more than usual.  She also had burning in her stomach immediately after the adjustment.  We exclusively use Pro Adjuster Chiropractic because it's the best Chiropractic treatment we have found for my wife.  After the adjustment was over she continued to tingle and her stomach burned for a bit and then it quit.  Sometimes after a visit she feels tired and needs to sleep and other times she has a spurt of energy and feels great.  Today she felt wonderful after the adjustment and the tingling left her body not long after she left the office. 

The odd thing with the visit today was her stomach burning.  I don't remember that happening before, but it always amazes me how our bodies are made so that everything is interconnected.  By adjusting her spine and aligning her body, her stomach was affected along with nerves all over her body.  Today was confirmation once again that using Chiropractic is vitally important for my wife's health, and we feel it is one of the core treatments we can count on every time she has Multiple Sclerosis symptoms or issues.

Hi Dreamer, thanks for the comment. My wife has actually used quite a few different diets to help with her MS. The digestion issues seem to follow her no matter which diet she is on, so we are not sure what is causing it. Thanks for the prayers!

I wonder if your wife has tried Immunoglobulin IgG therapy for her gut? I tried it and got good results with improvement in stomach issues and better digestion and gut motility. Unfortunately, for me, it seems like therapies derived from animal sources eventually lead to a flare in my RA pain/symptoms.

I want to thank you for this post. It explains a lot about what I experience on a daily basis. I suppose my burning and tingling stomach is not the norm for all MS patients, but it is one of my symptoms, and one I find more annoying than others. Mine is aggravated by stress and exertion, so I have to be careful. Food is also a culprit.

Suzanne, we've tried a few different things. My wife's diet isn't what it should be right now so she is working on that. Things are better when she does what she is supposed to do. :)

Hi

Why have you stopped writing for a few months? Please keep updating as your blog eases my pain. My wife has MS and just now she has the same stomach issues your wife does. She is in great pain and I don't know how to help her. I'll chant for her and your wife in my Buddhist group. Please do keep updating your blog, Cory.
