Thankyou...............

This is short and sweet, just to say thankyou for those who have been wondering how I've been.  My leg is feeling much better than it was, but best of all the MRI showed no signs of MS to be present, or any other "nasties".  The CT of my lower back also came back clear.  They (the doctors) still have no idea what is causing the symptoms which appear to be more "nerve" related.  I'm beginning to go with my initial thoughts ......... the added weight gain possibly combined with some sort of chemical influx into the system.  I've been reviewing my diet............. (yeah, no wonder I've put on weight hey! LOL), but appart from that I've been having quite a bit more of coke zero and also the weight watchers yoghurt.  Both these items have 950 and 951 sweeteners in them.  To my horror, I've discovered that one of these is Aspartame.  While I am usually very rigid in making sure I don't include anything like "equal", "nutrisweet" ect in my diet, I'd neglected to check out just what these sweetener numbers were!   While consuming chemicals does not affect everyone in a way that they pick up on it pretty soon, they sure don't build up "goodness, and health" into our systems. 

Love and Hugs to all,  Sharm

Hi Sharm. Glad the tests came back clear. Although how annoying not knowing the cause. Hope they find an answer for you soon and that you're feeling better. Hugs, Christine
