Have you looked into High dose Vitamin D3? JJ Cannell of the Vitamin D Council.
I know that it is more of a preventative approach. However, it may be helpful in cutting down the relapse rates.
Also, as a preventative, we should look to our children, and do what we can to prevent the risk of them developing it.

I've just read that you got MS. My brother does also.
He is currently in bad shape, because some years ago, he met a woman with MS, too. She loved to use wheelchairs and encouraged my brother to do the same... In less than a year he was not able to walk anymore. So remaining active will be hard, but will have beneficial effects.
But the point I want to make is something my brother tried that had very good results, but he scrapped the thing and he couldn't get better in the end.
He told me about a treatment to get a few bee stings a week, for a few months. When he began, he was already walking with a cane, with difficulty, and couldn't go in stairs.
First week, he gets 3 bee stings, and 5 days later, he was walking without a cane, even being to go up the stairs, with a little difficulty.
Encouraged by this, he made the biggest mistake of his life. For God knows why, he began thinking that already getting 20 bee stings at the same time would be helpful... But you have to work it up slowly...
He went into some sort of shock and was paralyzed for nearly 2 days, then got back control over himself. But he got scared of the treatment and stopped.
I am certain that had he kept on doing it the proposed way, he would have overcome the condition...
Here is one of many articles about it. Bee stings to treat MS
I wish you the best for the coming times, take care of yourself.

I feel as though I have been given a death sentence.
I HAVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
I have cried and cried over the past few days…..
I am scared and even though I feel as though I have great support from my friends, nobody can ever really understand.
My life WILL NEVER BE THE SAME…………..I am in mourning……
