The following case was reported to me by a former patient of Dr. Bernard Bihari, a New York physician who has pioneered the use of low-doses of the drug naltrexone for over a decade.
DR. BIHARI'S WORK
HELP FOR MS
Over twelve years ago Dr. Bihari's daughter had a college friend who experienced three severe exacerbations in the first year of her recently diagnosed MS. She was hospitalized with two of them. These were episodes of transverse myelitis with the MS activity in her spinal cord mimicking severance of the cord. Two were at the waist level, affecting movement and sensation in her legs as well as bladder and bowel functions. She experienced a quick spontaneous recovery of 90-95% from each episode, being left with some residual numbness in her feet. The third attack was in her spinal cord at a high level in her neck. In this attack the numbness was throughout her whole body, from her feet up to her face, and was terrifying to her. Although she regained over ninety per cent of her physical functions after these severe attacks, she obviously was worried about the course of this illness. Dr. Bihari suggested she try low-dose naltrexone, 3 mg at night.
MUSCLE SPASM RELIEF
This is certainly a very interesting story. Although some people may find it easy to negate this wonderful long-term success by suggesting that her MS just coincidentally remitted, that is certainly not what this young woman thinks. Without naltrexone her predicted progress in twelve years might have been directly to a wheelchair, considering the severity of her exacerbations in her twenties. The relief of muscle spasms alone would be considered beneficial by most MS patients.
