We have a patient who is asking if we can tell them what the benefits of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) are for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)  it is certainly something we've got plenty of experience with as it helps. Linda would maybe be better answering this question actually been in that position yourself but is one of the good testimonials. Googling this will give you so many different people's stories and perspectives and ms especially looking at the LDN research website and benefits can be anything from just feeling a little bit better to improve better bladder control to in improvements in pain improvement spasticity but generally, it's all coming from this overall anti-inflammatory effect that you get from taking LDN so because MS there isn't such a kind of range of symptoms i can't really say well one thing's been different because everyone is very different so it's within us it's really a case of try it and then take a very careful note of how you were feeling over a period of four to eight weeks and then see what has and hasn't improved and most people the majority of people definitely get some sort of benefit in one or more symptoms if not all and the very minority are the ones who seem to get exactly that because I mean you can have you know one of like 40 different symptoms when you've got MS and people usually only have a few but everybody, as you say, is different everybody has a different range of symptoms and it also depends on how long you've had MS you know how bad your MS is etc but if they go on to the LDN Research Trust website and do a search condition data for MS there are hundreds of videos there are conference presentations there's all your mechanism of actions and there's some an awful lot of information there
