hi well first off let's be clear - i'm female.. but i did lose sensation from my feet right up to my collarbone during my dx attack.
i don't remember exactly what day it came back but i can tell you that i instantly started researching nutrition for ms and using it.
i got the most feeling back from using a 'lite' version of the klenner protocol. basically a high protein diet with b-complex, extra b12, vitamin C and vitamin E at every meal and bedtime, plus lecithin and a daily multivitamin.
now i use a more thorough approach to ms and nutrition - which is sort of covered off in klenner (although it's somewhat outdated), but it was too overwhelming for me at the time.
NB i don't agree with the klenner choice for the form of vitamin E. it was the best choice in the 70s, but now we are aware that E8-complex is better.
hope that helps!

my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
