Getting "diagnosed" with MS in two days was just the beginning. How often does that happen?! Then a coworker was diagnosed with it within a month. Something wasn't right. Come to later find out we and many others were working in an area of multiple Brownfields that were being demolished and remediated (dug up and cleaned up)!

Initial labwork showed actually did show presence of heavy metals (lead, antimony, arsenic, and more) but doctors didn't want to pursue because of lack of conclusive research on health impact from our apparent low level chronic exposure.

So now, a year later, I have no clear diagnosis. No additional MS symptoms (most have actually disappeared completely) and have actually seen significant improvement in recent MRI and spinal fluid findings. I now have not only been to a neurologist who looked at Sarcoidosis, Brain Tumors, and ADEM, but now a GI doctor for a look at the cyst that was found on my liver during a thorasic scan ordered by the neurologist, and intestinal issues that I've been told could indicate IBS or Crohns disease.

The two of us with the initial MS diagnosis are not the only ones who are sick. There are many with cancers and liver, kidney and other immunological and cns diseases.

Where can I go to get some real medical help to look at what I do know I've been exposed to, instead of guessing from some unknown set of supposed genetic causes of my problems?

  • I would strongly suggest that you see a good environmental physician who specializes in these kinds of things. You have all the symptoms of advanced chemical/toxic or heavy metal poisoning of some sort. The best doctors for this are Dr. William Rea in Dallas, Texas of the Environmental Health Center Dallas, Dr. Allan Lieberman in North Charleston, South Carolina of Center of Environmental Medicine, and Dr. Albert Robbins of Deerfield Beach, Fla. Allergy center, or Dr. Sherry Rogers in upstate New York, who like the others is world reknowned on these matters. These doctors can accurately diagnose and treat your condition. You can get more information on these doctors on "Google". Sincerely: Dave Watkins.

  • This reminds me of a story my father told me of a town in Kansas that has a very high MS rate--something like four cases within a few blocks of one another and this is a small town we are talking about. The local doctor suspects ground water contamination by fertilizers and pesticides. The idea is that they have leached down through the soil over the years and have finally reached the water table.If this is true then no doubt we will be seeing more and more cases of mysterious ailments like this.
