nerve degeneration/progressive paralysisHi
I am getting pretty desperate for some help with my condition. In short I had to have a ceasarian with my last baby 15 months ago as she was breech.With this they gave me a spinal block and and an epidural. All seemed to go okay. A few weeks afer arriving home I started to develop a drop foot on right side. Scans and MRI of the brain and spine have been done on numerous occasions but show nothing. Meanwhile condition is progressing it is in both legs now and my left foot is almost the same as the right. I am finding it very hard to walk and need a stick legs getting weaker everyday. I have no pain at all with the condition, except when I fall which is all to often.Have had chronic fatigue type symptoms that have been alleviated with acupuncture.Acupuncture as yet has not stopped nerve degeneration.Doctors don,t really know what it is and have ordered an invasive nerve biopsy and then want to give me a transfusioal blood treatment called IVIG to deal with possible inflamation. They cant guarantee it will work and I declined the treatment 6 months ago ,but as I have deteriorated am being pressured into trying it. I have a very bad feeling about it. I could end up worse.It is hard to cope with this and trying to care for a young family and cling to what work I can. A friend who is a homeopath has proscribed just recently gelsinium 200c I have taken it for a few days now but have not noticed any real change.With nerve damage as it is maybe it will take a while. The question is what is causing this?How to stop it? Nerve and muscle test show marked progresssive deterioration. Neurologist thinks I have reacted to the epidural or spinal block drugs, or perhaps contracted a virus around the birth.I did have a itching hivey rash two weeks before birth which they thought hormonal at the time but contiued with a vengence for around 6 weeks afterward before settling? Can any one help?I dont know what to do I am getting really scared.Doctors dont think it is ms or motor neurones because of the way the symptoms have developed and there is nothing abnormal showing up in my blood tests.Although homeopathic friends did put my blood up for analysis and found chronic inflamation but were perplexed that there did not seem to be any real sign of immune activity going in to deal with it. Would appreciate it if anyone has any ideas.Sorry this is so long winded it is hard to put it down in full.I appreciate your patience. light and peace Lisa

The discovery by Dr. Benowitz is very extensive-he shows 3 factors leading to nerve growth & regeneration.
These are cyclic AMP, oncomodulin & PTen deletion. A company has used this discovery into a formula of 3 ingredients.

jola339 2 years agoyou must have suffered some injury to the spinal chord. the first thing to do is take Arnica 30 three doses a day for two days. future course of action can be decided only after arnica does its work.
