Welcome to the Virtual MS Center!
Ask any question you want about Multiple Sclerosis and one of our experts will answer it as soon as possible.
Here is My Question:
I have always wanted to ask a neurologist their opinion about the case of Dr. Terry Wahls recovery from MS. More specifically, how likely is it that someone in her stage of disease (wheelchair for several years) reverses the disease as much as she did, without help of any medication? Is it possible that all that happened in her case is a giant placebo?
Every question begets another question; that is the nature of scientific inquiry. The question you pose is logical but there is no independent data available to provide an answer.

OK, let me ask a more simple question: have you ever seen a patient with advanced progressive multiple sclerosis, in wheelchair for several years, reversing to a point where they can walk normally without aid and bike 10 miles or more?
