Effects of pulsing?

i've always over salted my food, the kids hated my pasta because I always over salted the water. My Dad also craved salt, I realised a few weeks ago that I can't stand more than a sprinkling nowadays and seem to have a permanent salty taste, at the back of my tongue, I'm also very tired and weak, I had thought my fatigue was under control, nausea is managed and common, but not the saltiness or new fatigue.  Also, I've had a mysterious itch, since before DXi, but, now, my face itches! This is nothing like my paresthesial Any ideas please?

Jane, you have even lower blood pressure than me, so your taste salt is no worry for you, in fact you need it!  Probably better to add it to your food after you have cooked it though to avoid arguements.

As for the mysterious itch, it is common in up to half people with MSi, worse at some times than others.  When  I was fairly early in the cure, sometimes it became unbearable.  I used to overdose on triludan, because I didn't like other antihistamines which made me sleepy.  Now there is a new anihistamine, cetirizine, which does not make most people sleepy, but without the side effects from triludan, which made it a prescription only drug.  I think it would be worth trying some.  It is very fast acting: I recently took some for an allergic reaction to ivy pollen, ivy growng in profusion just underneath our bedroom window...........................Sarah

Thanks Sarah, I'll see if I can buy some from the chemist, I don't fancy my chaces with the GP But, also, it's good to know it isn't terribly unusual!

Jane, how is your itch? Cetirizine works for me, double dose to  start., then one a day............Sarah

Hi Sarah,

The itch is so much better! As is the saltiness!

i'm also cutting down on Modafinil and (so far) my blood pressure is hugely improved! Only time will tell if this lasts, but i am taking handfuls of Siberian ginseng! Is your BP stable now?

Jane, It sounds like there is no reason to be disheartened that your walking isn't quite as good as last weekend, with both your MSi itch and low blood pressure being improved one thing at a time!

My blood pressure is very stable: I can make it alternate through the day from as low as 100/60 on waking, to 140 or more after doing a heavy go on my elliptical trainer, but it will very quickly go back to the lower pressure.  I don't think that heart isues have ever been a problem wih me though.  I remember once, when I was at the Violin Shop, the chief repairer brought in his mother's blood pressure checker, probably wanting to boast about his health.  After getting all three of us in turn to run downstairs to the ground floor, then run back up, we each tested ourselves and I came out by far the best.  What most impressed him was that my pulse was back to 50 beats per minute after about 15 minutes.  I still have the same readings, which kind of shows that blood pressure risng is not inevitable as you age, since that must have been getting on for thirty years ago.......................Sarah

Hi Sarah,

that made me laugh! I love it when young men think they have the upper hand, only to be disabused! I had a massage today, although i had virtually no sleep last night, and was shattered. Like most MSers I choose to walk where i can and walked the winding victorian,up to her consultation room, when i arrived she mentioned how quickly i had made it! Maybe it should always be others who gauge improvement!
