Linda Elsegood shares her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Story on Phat Man Radio with Darren McDuffy.
In 1969 at the age of 13, Linda had glandular fever (Epstein-Barr virus). She was seriously ill and away from school for six months.
Late 1999 Linda’s mother had a serious heart attack and the trauma affected her badly. She was working full time, travelling two and a half hours every day and running the home. This excessive workload and stress began to take its toll on her health, and by May 2000 she had lost her balance, lost feeling in the left side of her face and her head, tongue and nose were numb with pins and needles.
In early December 2003 Linda started Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), and the results were incredibly positive. By Christmas Linda was functioning again, and her liver tests were back to normal. She felt like herself again.
Linda founded the LDN Research Trust in May 2004. In this interview she says that it is the most exciting thing she has ever done. She is able to give many hours a week to the Trust, helping people to get LDN and trying to get it into clinical trials.
