My wife has been in a wheelchair since 2000. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She also suffered severely for 5 years from Trigeminal Neuralgia which is severe facial pain – It is an electrical shock to the side of the face. For 5 years she was shocked 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The doctors said that the only treatment was heavy doses of pain medications . She was on 300 yes 300 prescriptions per year. She was a complete vegetable . Finally , we went to Shands in Gainesville and she had the nerve lazored to stop the pain. It took her 10 months to get off all the drugs because of the seizure effect of coming off the drugs to fast. We were told by the doctors that Donna would be in her wheelchair for the rest of her life and we just had to deal with it.
We found Ernie and he showed us his MRT equipment. I was looking at her condition as a Brain injury and thought that we needed to treat her condition as a brain injury. Ernie explained to us that it takes 27 months to rebuild all the cells in her body. It made sense to us, so we started seeing Ernie 3 times a week. When we first came she couldn’t move here legs. She had no use of her right arm and hand. She had double vision in her eyes. She had terrible problems with her bladder.
We have been seeing Ernie for 6 moths now and she now has much better control of her bladder. She can move her legs and feet. She is able to kick her legs out. She can move her right arm and open and close her right hand. She is even back on the computer doing flyers and brochures which she loved to do before. That is significant because she had to teach herself how to use the programs and she had to be able to use the mouse. Her goal is to be out of the wheelchair and to renew our wedding vows. She is working on the invitations for that now.
Ernie has been a real Godsend. We are very grateful for his MRT treatments.
