My name is Rhonda. Brother in law has been sick for 5 years. It started our with Left hand curling in, Left shoulder lowered. Then came headaches with a nasty smell in nostril when ice is applied to head. Tried homeopathy, Asian Tea, Cupping (suck congealed blood out of back). He talks with slurred, slow speech. Slow gait. CAT scan ruled out Parkinson's, waiting for results of Lyme disease test. Couldn't get doctors to do a simple CBC for anemia, rule out other disorders. Natural doctor has him on natural iron to build him up from Cupping. Sister in law at wits end. He just lays down and cries, sleeps. Any ideas??

He needs to have an MRI done to rule at Multiple Sclerosis, along with a lumbar puncture for high IgG levels. Examine his eyes -- are there any abnormalities (i.e. rapid beating movements).

  • Stay away from the Quacks and Charlatans. Homeopathic medicine is just stupidity and cupping sounds like another money grabbing Con. Have a professional physician examine him not so called "Natural Doctors". Might be difficult to diagnose the problem even with real Doctors, but you just waste time and money on the rest. And also may cause much more harm by not seeking out competent help.
