With hindsight, Susie realises that she started to get symptoms after a bout of Glandular Fever and a Hepatitis B injection. She didn’t really think she needed to address her symptoms until after her daughter was born in 1998. Susie battled on until the symptoms got worse and worse. Her symptoms were weakness in her legs, strange sensations, vertigo, nerves in her face, head and neck, no taste or smell, optic neuritis, painful spasms and cramps in her feet, legs and hands, incontinence and slurred speech. Her doctor sent her for an MRI which came back clear but things continued to get worse. After a year she went back and eventually was offered treatment that she was wary of taking.
After a house move, Susie heard about low dose naltrexone from an MS resource centre and she heard about Dr Bob Lawrence through that. He did many tests and recommended Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and a better diet.
It wasn’t very long before Susie’s symptoms started to improve with LDN and she started to get her life back. Then Susie was diagnosed with breast cancer and she explains the treatment there and how that includes low dose naltrexone to reduce the horrible side effects of chemotherapy.
