My prayers are with you. I can't imagine how difficult this has been for you.
Have you ever heard of taking hook worms as a treatment for MS? They say your immune system attacks the hook worms instead of itself ... might be worth looking into? I have a friend who was diagnosed with MS years ago and he swears by it. I guess they're administered via a transdermal patch which has been "laced" with hookworms ... here's a link to a study, apparently they had some success:
I hope this helps, in some small way <3

I'd be careful with that, but I'd definitely research it. The internet is a great way to find these sorts of connections. I hope the OP doesn't give up the SEARCH for an answer. The search never ends, not until the exact moment we die. What is MS? Learn!! Knowledge is a weapon.
Auto-immune diseases are like the few japanese holdouts that still thought world war II was active despite that it had already ended. A defense force that has run amok and lost its bearings.
If I were the OP, I'd start googling and storing links in a very detailed way. You'd be surprised what kinds of things can be learned on the outside even when you're not a doctor. I've heard stories like this a few times about people who know how to google actually finding answers. So don't give up.
I wish the world weren't this way. Makes me hate it, but... what choice is there? Pathogens are always regenerating in new ways. And we always find new ways to hurt ourselves. Nature seems hell bent on always breaking the rules and finding clever ways to torment its creations.
We're all family on earth. They know we all originated from just a few people.
