This research link below however, says they believe it could be the reason for some people getting Multiple Sclerosis. I have not heard of this before, so it is of great interest. That an insufficient amount of good bacteria, could have a direct link to MS!
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system.
More than 100,000 people in the UK have MS. Symptoms usually start in your 20s and 30s and it affects almost three times as many women as men.
As you know I suffer from Dystonia, Functional Movement Disorder, PTSD, NEAD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Sleep Disorder, Chronic Pain Syndrome, and Functional Bowel Disease. It is also thought that I now have Fibromyalgia, and it is possible Hemiplegic Headaches. On top of which I have other problems, such as brain fog and loss of memory. I also suffer a lot of back problems, and am myself disabled. I know it’s quite a list, but at least my diagnosis’ are separated, and not just put under my Functional Disorder diagnosis. Which means that they get looked at separately, and I get the correct medication needed for each one.
As Functional Movement Disorder has many overlapping symptoms, from many other Movement Disorders. This sort of informational research, is of interest as it may point to reasons behind our questions for our disorders.
Finding answers to our questions can mean so much, as we are left without answers from both Doctors and Consultants so many times.
It is the reason I find myself looking for answers for my questions, sometimes it is the only way to make sense of why these disorders choose certain types of people. There are also thoughts that low immune systems have a lot of connections to the gut, again another answer ticked off!
It seems the body’s gut has a lot to answer for!
Thanks as always for reading, and take care of yourself and your loved ones 😊 X.
